Limiting beliefs

Have you become addicted to limiting beliefs? Do those limiting beliefs soothe you and comfort you while at the same time holding you back?

In the short term, it can be much easier to tell yourself you can’t do it. Yet when you look at the big picture, it’s much better to go ahead and do the work of achievement.

You can comfort yourself today by believing that your lack of progress is not your responsibility. However, you’ll soon be paying for that short-term comfort with long-term regret.

It is difficult work to acknowledge and follow the best of your possibilities. And it is well worth the effort.

For your dreams are calling to you, and they’ll never be satisfied until you do something about them. You have what it takes to reach them, and they know it.

Break free of your dependence on limiting beliefs. And achieve the great things that only you can bring to life.

What are they teaching your kids/grandkids?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 16th December 2009

This hit me hard. The progressive left is sure smacking the kids early with propaganda making the U.S. out to be a bad place.

Hollywood celebrities and education gurus have teamed together to distribute to schools across the country a dramatic new curriculum that casts American history

as an epic march of victims seeking to shrug off the shackles of the warmongering, racist, capitalist, imperialist United States.

Details here.

It’s all about what an awful place this is.  Howard Zinn, source of the Zinn Education Project, which is in schools in every state, says,

“We’re dreamers. We want it all. We want a peaceful world. We want an egalitarian world. We dont’ want war. We don’t want capitalism. We want a decent society.”

His vision of a decent society is not what I want for my country – or my grandchildren. Why?

When you socially engineer society, you increase the power of government and limit personal freedoms.

The real down side is someone gets to impose their view of utopia on you through government – whether you want it or not.

Goodbye, Jim Rohn

Posted by Rob Longenecker on 15th December 2009

You may not have known Jim Rohn. He wasn’t part of the shooting community, he was a motivator, successful public speaker, well-known author and business mentor.

Jim Rohn, one of my favorite teachers and mentors, passed away this week after an 18-month battle with pulmonary fibrosis. Jim was a brilliant and inspiring business philosopher and one of life’s true gentlemen. I’ve heard him speak in person and listened to many of his recordings. Even though Jim is gone, you may wish to get to know his work, especially in these challenging times.

Here are some of my favorite quotes from Jim:

“It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go. ”

“Formal education will make you a living; self-education will make you a fortune.”

“Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.”

“The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.”

“Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.”

“If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us.”

“One of the major reasons why people are not doing well is because they keep trying to get through the day. A more worthy challenge is to try to get from the day.”

“Affirmation without discipline is the beginning of delusion.”

“For every disciplined effort there is a multiple reward.”

“Asking is the beginning of receiving. Make sure you don’t go to the ocean with a teaspoon. At least take a bucket so the kids won’t laugh at you.”

“Don’t wish it were easier, wish you were better.”

“Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day.”

“Success is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.”
