There are high-class performers who seemingly achieve success all their lives, achieving a varied set of feats. On the opposite end of the spectrum, there are people who seemingly cannot achieve what they want.
They always fail to achieve their goals. At one point, I thought I was part of this unlucky crowd that never got what they wanted.
However, as I understand it, I did not have business problems, I had life problems that manifested themselves in different forms in my daily life. I needed to learn How to Get What You Want out of my way in order to have everything I wanted.
When we want something, we tend to seek outside solutions first. But this is the opposite.
I remembered this after a recent conversation with former professional athlete and XL Super Bowl winner Chukki Okobi. Chukki has not only achieved success in athletics, but is also a successful business and entertainment entrepreneur, a member of the Screen Actors Guild and a certified NLP practitioner, where he works with numerous leading performers.
When it comes to penetrating new industries and asserting yourself, the most important step is to “take control of your mind and thoughts,” says Okoby.
Getting off your own path and ultimately getting what you want starts with practicing these two habits.
