177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class
The world class sees themselves as servants in their personal and professional lives. Whatever their chosen field, the great ones know the essence of success and fulfillment can be found in the service of others. Professional performers understand that amateurs suffer the consequences of living out of fear-based consciousness. Most pros are recovering amateurs who woke up one day and made a decision to change. They empathize with the amateur mindset and do everything they can to lead them to the next level of consciousness. Champions believe the greatest leaders are the greatest servants, and that all of us are here to lend a hand to one another. In order to embrace this mindset and become a conduit for positive change, a person must be operating from spirit, as opposed to ego. Champions serve without asking or expecting anything in return. Of course, in accordance with the law of cause and effect, they are richly rewarded for their efforts. The middle-class consciousness is not operating at a level high enough to see this law in action.
When we were kids, most of us learned the saying, “The more you give, the more you get.” Somewhere along the way, many of us have forgotten this piece of ancient wisdom. As a result, amateurs are always seeing how much they can get without having to give. On the other hand, the world class continues to give out of love and activate this law. The law is the same for everyone, yet amateurs don’t believe in it. They are afraid they’ll get hurt again. Fear draws them inside themselves and reinforces their amateur behavior. Meanwhile, the world class is humbly serving society and being handsomely rewarded.
ACTION STEP FOR TODAY:
Examine your beliefs about serving others, and ask this critical thinking question: “What do my habits, actions and behaviors say about my belief in the law of cause and effect?” On a scale of 1 to 7, 7 being the highest, how much do you really give to others?
