In 2001, a chance encounter changed Heather’s life. On a plane, a random man handed Heather a book and promised that it would “change her life.”
The book: Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki
Heather read it cover to cover and knew immediately that her life would never be the same. Why? Because of the decision that she made when she read that book.
Heather decided to take full and complete personal responsibility for all of the results and success in her life.
“Success in life is in direct proportion to your own personal and professional growth.” – Heather Christie
This was the day that Heather decided to get “on the court of life” and take control by playing the game her way.
For many people, taking personal responsibility is a choice they have yet to make; it’s not that they don’t want to take control of their own lives, they simply have yet to realize that they can.
Question: How many people do you come across daily who are “off the court,” constantly complaining and not in control of their own decisions, actions, and therefore results?
More importantly, where do you go “off the court”?
Action: Where are you tolerating “off the court” behavior? Make a list of the things that frustrate you, that aren’t working in your life. Review that list and think about how you feel.
You may also be in D.E.N.I.A.L. – Don’t Even Notice I Am Lying. Sometimes the hardest problems to solve are not created by others. Where are you tolerating something and lying to yourself?
We have the power to direct our own minds. “You train what you tolerate,” is one of the best pieces of coaching Heather’s ever received from her financial mentor, Keith Cunningham (@keystothevault).
“Every decision that is made by you, first is a thought. When a thought turns into a decision it changes your emotions, it changes your actions and ultimately your results.” – Heather Christie
