I’m sure you’ve had the experience of something
A tire blows out when you’re driving.
Someone is rude to you on the phone or in person.
You’re wrongly accused of something.
Your so-called friend is jealous of you.
You got fired from your job.
You lost a big sale.
Or you get into an argument with a friend or
When this happens you probably adopted
a “this sucks” attitude. Then you talked to
others who agreed with your position.
Collectively, you arrive at
the same “this sucks” conclusion.
Truth is there will always be things that happen in life
that we don’t like – yet, and this is important, we can
still carry a sense of happiness and joy within no matter
what happens. Even when enduring physical pain we can
It’s not so much about having a positive attitude or “being
positive” as it is making a choice to be creatively alive; to
be actively involved in making something good happen.
When you’re faced with problems you don’t have to immediately
react and start solving them. Instead, you’d be surprised how
often you can stand back and say, “Alright, instead of viewing
this as a problem, let me think of creative ways to build around
this, to leapfrog it, to transform it into something good.”
At my seminars I’ve told a story about the two men who found themselves
at the bottom of a canyon. One man cried and moaned about how
much work it would be to get out of the canyon. He moaned about how
far he had fallen. He calculated how much work and time would be involved
in getting out of the canyone – and when he had the answer he sat with his hands
on his face, pouting.
The other man looked about the canyon. He noted there was a stream
for swimming, fishing, bathing – it even served as a wonderful view for
him to practice his painting. He saw the rocks and sticks and figured
he could build a home and stay awhile. With fresh air, sunshine, plenty
of water and a place to sleep, all was well in his world.
He went to bed that night a happy man with dreams of creating something
with what he had around him. The other man sat up all night thinking about
Moral of the story is simple: Create what you want in life regardless of
circumstances. Don’t try to solve a problem before you begin creating.
Create NOW and in many cases the problem will go away.
When it comes to money – most people go into problem-solving mode.
They try to figure out how to get out of the canyon instead of how to
create what they want NOW. Big difference.
When it comes to health, people focus on the weight they need to lose
instead of on the body they want to create. Muy diferente.
Focusing on problems is not something creators do. Creators create.
You were born as a creative human being.
Use that creative power. Rise above petty nit-picking, fault finding and
problem solving. Rise above whining and complaining.
Think about what you want – independent of your problems – and get to
work on it.
The first day you do this, I guarantee you’ll sleep better. And you’ll sleep

P.S. I was in the canyon once – financially speaking. And I built an empire in that
canyon. One day, from that canyon, I wired a check that wiped out all previous
debts. I know what it’s like to be down – and I know what it takes to rise above
problems. I’ll show you the fastest way to rise above the herd and make something
of yourself at my October seminar – http://www.knockoutmarketing.com – get in NOW
