What story are you telling yourself?

imageWhat is holding you back from living your life to the fullest? To reach your full potential??

When I have had no progress in my life – it’s always ME, and ONLY ME!!, standing in my way!
Me, and the bullshit I keep telling myself – “this is not for me”, “I can’t do this”, “I don’t know enough”, “I’m not the right person”, “I don’t have what it takes”, “What will other people say”, “What if I fail?”, “I don’t have the right qualities” Blablablaaaaaa BULLSHIT!

Get rid of all these thoughts! Stop telling yourself all these BULLSHIT STORIES – they are stopping you from getting where you want to be!

I have one GOLDEN RULE for my self-talk:
– Only tell yourself what you would say to your friends.
If you told your friend “nah, don’t think you can finnish that master degree, you should just quit.. ” – Do you think you would have many friends left?? I don’t think so!!
Fix your self-talk, start being nice to yourself, appreciate all the good qualities you have instead of focusing on the negatives – Believe in yourself the way you believe in your friends. MAGIC will happend!!

Have a great Monday <3 And today, and everyday from now, start to tell yourself that you are AWESOME and can accomplish whatever you set your mind to!! No more Bullshit! 😉

Life can be so much broader…

Everyday, most people wake up and do all the things they HAVE to do. All the things that everyone else are doing. All the normal, everyday tasks. And thats why people do it without even asking a question – because, everyone are doing it..? And thats life..?

I believe there is nothing you HAVE to do. You don’t HAVE to go to school. You don’t HAVE to go to your job that you hate.
Of course, there will be consequences if you don’t do these things- but there are always CHOICES – it is up to you to chose one of them, it is your desition! And this will create your life..

Life will give you exactly what you’re asking for. You create your own reality, and you create how you want to live. Don’t live a life that someone else created. That’s their life. You go out there and create your own. Make desitions that are right for you – and start to LIVE your life.
Simply love this, by Steve Jobs:

“Life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact, and that is everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you and you can change it. You can influence it”

Want money to work for you..?

imageThen I suggest you start off reading this book!

I wasn’t into reading books at all when I got this recommended.
After highschool, I was just sick of reading all the stuff that I just HAD TO read in school, so when I was done, I was pretty sure I would never open a book again.

But then someone recommended me this book – this someone was a very successful guy – at this point I was sick of the thought of working Monday – Friday, 9-5 the rest of my life – He told me this book might give me some ideas and change my perspective. So I gave it a go!

I read the book in just a few days, and It made me realise some important things, and it actually made me quite happy!

I have never seen myself doing what everyone else does, the “normal” life, the “rat race”: go to school, get an education, get a job, working 9-5 to pay off my bills and loan from being a student, buy a house, work more to pay off the loan on the house, and then two weeks holiday with the family every summer, before getting back to reality and do the same over again, and again and again. Don’t get me wrong – Nothing wrong with this if this is what you really want and if this makes you happy – it’s just not for me.
Before I had a plan about doing something else, and before I knew something else existed – this was actually a very depressive thought for me: is this really all life has to give me? (and yes, I’m probably the only one feeling that way, right..?)

When I talk with people about this, most people laugh at me and said “Berit, nobody really wants that..but we have to, that’s life..”

Really..? I’m not stupid, you don’t have to tell me that I have to work – I know that, and I want to work! I love being busy and to have a lot to do! I just don’t want the “normal”(whatever normal means..) life where you work in a JOB (Journey Of the Broke..) your whole life, building someonelses dream, just to make enough to pay off your bills and debt – because that’s what a lot of people end up doing!

“Rich Dad, Poor Dad” was the beginning for me, the beginning of a different mindset – I realised that it exists other ways to work then the traditional way, you just have to leave what you know and think outside the box. I started to understand how I could use my work capasity way smarter then I had done before.

So, a happy message from me to you:
You don’t HAVE to be stuck in the “rat-race-life” if you don’t want to! I  recommend everyone that hasn’t read this book, to read it! My opinion is that this book should be obligatory in every school all over the world! It’s written by Robert Kiyosaki, an American business man and investor. The book teaches you “the secret about money. That you don’t learn in school.”

Have you read it, if so, any thoughts?
