Chris tells me that whenever he travels, (which is often) the first thing he does when he gets to the counter is ask for an upgrade. 9 times out of 10 he gets what he asks for. Now we could make a lot of assumptions about why he gets what he asks for. Some would say he’s lucky or that he gets what he wants because he’s a handsome guy and has a great personality. Some would say because he’s articulate and well dressed. But I believe he gets his seat upgraded simply because he had the guts to ask! (Insert praise dance)
If you’re going places in life, you need to have a certain level of boldness and courage to get there; wherever your there is! Getting to your destination has a lot to do with how you see yourself. Take a moment and be honest with yourself – How do you see yourself? And don’t base it on the validation or encouragement of other people. What’s your honest opinion about you?
See, you can’t be insecure and walk around with low self esteem if you want to take off in life. To go places, great places; you have to have a healthy dose of humility paired with a wholesome shot of self confidence, which is an extremely difficult balancing act for the average person. Let’s be honest, most people don’t know how to handle success. This is why so many get cocky when they experience even the slightest bit of favor in their life. I have rarely seen many people able to win in life without becoming braggadocio-us and arrogant. Think of one person you know who’s excelling without being a jerk? I’ll wait,….Sadly, you usually see people with too much confidence and not enough talent or giftedness to match; or people with supernatural mastery who have little esteem and no idea of the magnitude of the gift they possess. We’ve got to change that. We’ve got to learn to ask for what we want with the right spirit. This says to me that more work has to be done on our inner man than our external image, that is if we want to travel on this journey called life with the right mentality.
There was a story in the Bible where Moses, the leader of the first mega church ever, sent out 12 spies to check out the Promised land. The story goes that when they got there everything was huge and on another level. Well, 10 out of the 12 of them came back feeling like they couldn’t handle the next level. They just felt way too insecure within. They couldn’t imagine themselves taking on the next level. Their mindset was too small for the next level. You know people like that don’t you? Hopefully you’re not one of them. Thankfully, 2 out of the 12 of the spies had a different mentality. They believed. They were bold. They were confident. They felt like they were well able to do it. Can I tell you that no one is responsible for the way you feel about you but you?! This is why you have to work on you! Especially the way you see yourself. Most people run around all their life asking, begging, waiting for people to tell them who they are because they haven’t spent the time working on themselves yet.
The 2 men who saw things different took the lead and changed the game. This is a vital component when it comes to the mentality of a good leader. You’ve got to be willing to step away from your friends and family and your need to be accepted and liked by everyone. You can’t get to the next level staying in agreement with people who love negativity. The 2 leaders stepped up and said we can do this. It was their mindset that changed the way everyone around them felt about the next level. Can I tell you that you have the power to inspire and bring about hope even if you’re outnumbered by small thinking! Because there was 2 people out of the 12 who felt confident about going somewhere great, they were able to change the whole community’s mind about going to their intended destination. Everything you will ever do will start with how you think. If you don’t have enough courage to step up to the counter and expect a better seat, then I’m afraid this is going to be a bumpy ride for you.
Get away from people who don’t want to see things with a next level mindset. The majority will always be negative and pessimistic when it comes to change and growth and expansion, but you’re part of a special group. Your mentality is different and you’re ready to take whatever greatness is waiting for you. Start getting used to confronting things other people aren’t bold enough to confront. You’re well able to take on the next level! Be bold. Be courageous and take your next step toward whatever belongs to you! Being a wealthy traveler doesn’t necessarily have to do with money. What it really boils down to is the way you think.
