Had a fantastic time last weekend with Kulin and Mina Desai at Cal State Fullerton. I also got a chance to rub shoulders with this simple, down-to-earth empowering self made entrepreneur from New Jersey at the India Gate restaurant where we had a nite owl session with him.
One of the main areas of his discussion was about Self talk.
The power of words - to shape the way you feel. And to form your reality. Use world-class words and you'll get closer to your world-class life.
He gave instance of the guy who was chatting with his mentor. Mentor asked him how he was doing. Like he just got an arrow through the heart with a victim mentality came the answer," I do not have enough money. Classic Victimspeak: "I do not have this."
Kulin said, "No matter what life sends us - from a raging customer to a heartbreaking disappointment to depressing financial situation, we are responsible". Yup. We are. We can own our reaction. We can own what we do with the situation. We can be bitter or show up better. Tons of choices. Starting with our words.
