Consider this. Each of us has somewhere between 12,000 to 50,000 thoughts a day. More than you thought, huh? Some of them help you get what you want and some get in the way of what you want or what you are shooting for. And these results all began with just one thought.
If you attended the Advisors On Target June 26 webinar, you know that I talked about the results of a study I did assessing how successful painting contractors think. What makes them different? How are they so successful? I used the 6 Advisors™ assessment program as the tool for my findings.
6 Advisors is an online assessment program that measures the type of advice you give yourself and the degree of this advice. We each give ourselves advice in 6 different yet distinct arenas. These 6 categories include thoughts relating to:
3. Getting things done
4. The way in which you spend your time
5. Ideas, concepts and discipline
6. Turning dreams into reality and motivation
Your thoughts impact the money you make, the debt you may have, the passion you may or may not have, your energy level, your stress level, your relationships, and your self esteem to name a few.
We all give ourselves plenty of balanced advice and this has helped shape many of our outcomes over the years. But advice we give ourselves that is unbalanced usually ends up resulting in outcomes that may be filled with minefields. The objective is to try and recognize when advisors are out of balance and shift course to achieve better results.
But this advice and internal dialog we all have has probably been around for a long time, so shifting thoughts and making a change will take some focus and diligence.
But change is good! It can mean improving your ability to manage your emotions, choices and actions so you end up with better results and a richer life.
Join me for my next article on the Empathy-Intuition advisor which focuses on the advice we give ourselves about others.
