Yes, it sounds kind of crazy, huh? Let me explain. You see most people are focused on what we don’t have and what isn’t working. Not just some of the time, but all of the time.
When you focus on lack, you certainly get more of it, in all areas of life. Including finances.
So how did gratitude create $72,000 in 60 minutes from a tiny solo ad for Shaqir Hussyin?
First of all who is he? Shaqir Hussyin has helped over 30,943 people through his seminar speaking, consulting and coaching. He is followed by a loyal email subscriber base of over 654,000 members which is growing by over 500 to 3,000 people every single day.
I am on Daegan Smith’s email list and he shares stories of how someone got from point A (struggling) to point B (extremely successful and prosperous).
Daegan asked Shaqir what advice he can share about how to become absolutely fearless and empower themselves to get better results in life. Daegan says he believes many people hold themselves back by limiting beliefs.
Here is Shaqir’s answer:
When we start off in entrepreneurship what tends to happen is we’re all big thinkers. We’re all good people that want to go out and buy this car. I want to buy an island in the next five years, which I’m confident that I’ll do. We have all these big dreams and aspirations and crazy thoughts.
Your family, your friends and the people around you use words like get real, be realistic or that’s not really for you, and those kinds of words and phrases. At an early age we get programmed with limiting beliefs.
Then we start in entrepreneurship, we’re scared of failure. We’re scared of success and we feel stuck in our head in our results. I’m pretty sure a few of the listeners might be on Facebook or Twitter or any of the social sites. At the end of the day they think they spent all day on there, and they haven’t gotten any results. What have I been doing?
Internally they have blockages. The reason why I say this and I can relate to my customers and clients so well is because I was one of those guys. My dreams were beaten down. I used to spend all day online and at the end of the day I didn’t have any commissions in my account like I do now.
There’s a process that helped me get to where I am and having this ridiculous strong warrior mindset. It’s funny because a lot of the time most people don’t talk about this stuff. Goal setting is great, but the stuff that I’m telling you now, if you take it and you internalize it inside you, it will change your life.
There is no doubt that it will change your life. How do you get from being stuck and living in fear, to gaining abundance, gaining clarity, reaching your goals at a faster level than you’ve ever imagined?
It comes down to first let’s just say you’ve got to change the meaning that everything has. If something’s not serving you, you have to create that awareness inside you and pinpointing XYZ. That’s not working. The people around me are not really serving me.
Now you’ve got to understand that nothing in life has any meaning except for the meaning that you give it. Now you have the power to give anything any meaning that you want. Why would you choose a negative feeling or a negative belief attached to your thoughts?
Starting from now, give everything an empowering belief, an empowering statement. I can. I will. If anyone does this exercise – I don’t know if you do it – but my whole life I’ve been a really spiritual person. I pray every single day.
It’s this exercise of expressing my attitude of gratitude. Every single day without fail, I write for five, 10, 15 or sometimes even 25 minutes until my hand starts aching because I don’t write much. I write down all the things that I’m grateful for.
Rather than saying I want to make $50,000 a day, I’m grateful for the cash that comes in every single day, the commissions that come in. Yesterday when I was speaking to you, I told you something like I’ve just made over $15,000. I check my email in the morning after I do a couple of practices.
In the morning I woke up, and I saw that while I was sleeping I made an extra $1,500. In the last 24 hours, I did well over $22,500. I did nothing but just smile inside. I wake up whenever I want. I pretty much have the freedom to do whatever I want.
It’s not because of the money that I make. It’s not how much traffic I send. It all starts internally, and if your listeners get this, I promise you that it will have a profound impact on your life. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to make your first $100,000 or make your first $100 or make your first $10,000.
Come from a place of immense gratitude. That feeling of being grateful is what increases your vibrational energy. I don’t want to go into too much of this quantum mechanics stuff. I read lots of books and I study a lot. I go to lots of seminars, and these are the things that I’ve learned.
When you have immense gratitude and you have clarity, you increase and create flow within you. You’re not worried about the $200 or the $1,000 that you just dropped in a solo ad because your mind is on abundance. You know you’re not attached to XYZ.
This is what happens. A lot of people get into this industry, they place an ad and they’re attached to the outcome. It’s not because I make XYZ money. I don’t care if I make $2,000 a day or $20,000 a day. I can tell you that I still have the same old smile.
So, MY message to you is are you grateful every day for what you have. And I mean REALLY greatful and do you focus on what you have rather than what you do not have and what you are achieving rather than what you are not achieving? Like Shaqir said, when you really understand this and have an immense gratitude, your life will begin to turn around.
So start today to keep a gratitude journal, write in it every day until your hand cramps and FEEL the feelings of being grateful. Here is another way to remember to be grateful more throught your day: A way to remember gratitude. Do these things and not only will you be happier, you will be more prosperous like Shaqir.
