Welcome to Your Unlimited Life, I’m Carlos Marin, author of the USF & Creator of USA. And on today’s show I have another super impacting and quite controversial topic!

We live in a world where people are continually blaming outside conditions, other people, the government, the economy, the weather, their spouse and anything else you can imagine for their situation in life.

These people keep re-living the same problems or conditions over and over and never realize that their thinking is the true cause.

Now understand, I’m not pointing fingers because when I first started on my path to success I had a victim mentality and blamed everything under the sun for my crappy situation in life.

Then one day one of my mentors said to me, Carlos your thinking is what creates your success.  Your attitude determines your altitude in life.  Every time you point your finger to blame someone or something else for your results, you have 3 fingers pointing back at the real cause.

If you want lasting success and wealth you must be 100% responsible for your success and results.

Now, I gotta tell you it was hard for me to understand back then and even harder to swallow but over time I began to see this principle in action in every successful person I studied.

I began to change my victim mentality and take responsibility for my results.

My mantra became – If it’s to be it’s up to me!

Now, I’ll grant you that we can’t control everything that happens in our life right now but what we can control is the meaning that we give it.

You see, I’ve accepted the belief that every challenge or problem brings with it the seed of a greater benefit.

If that’s true, then everything that happens is an opportunity for you and me to produce a greater result.

If you really think about it, success and wealth are the result of finding needs or problems that people have and providing solutions.

The bigger the problem, the better the solution – the bigger the reward!

Most people’s problem is they spend all their time focusing on the problem and moaning and groaning over how unfortunate and powerless they are to do anything about it.

Well guest what?  If you understand how your mind works – when you pity and belittle yourself & tell yourself that a problem or your condition is insurmountable and controlling your life – that’s exactly the message and direct order that you are giving your mind – so it obeys you and therefore you are in a stuck state – powerless to do anything.

Just think about this for a second, if you’re a victim and outside conditions control your life, then you are now and will always be powerless and circumstances and conditions will always control you and your results.  Does that sound like a fun life to you?  It sure doesn’t to me.  That would be a life not worth living.

On the other hand, if you are responsible for your results… then if you don’t like the results you’re getting you can un-make them and re-create them according to your desires and dreams.  Sounds like a much funner life to me – how about you?

Now notice I said responsible for your results not that you are at fault. There’s a big difference. Responsible means having the ability to respond positively to what happens and you always have that ability but you must choose to exercise it.

So from today on I want you to make the #1 prerequisite for success your very own by making the commitment to take ownership of your life & results!

Take these beliefs as your own to help you take this responsibility. Nothing in life has any meaning except the meaning I give it. Think about it… in one of our recent shows we talked about perceptual reality where we saw that we give meaning to what happens in our lives based on information from our physical senses based on our emotional state, what’s happening at that moment in our environment and the vantage point from where we’re seeing, hearing and feeling. We say that our point of view is is the truth or reality when it’s only our perception or point of view (which also means opinion!)

When you feel compelled to play the role of victim or judge another person for something you think they did to you, ask yourself:

  1. What actually happened here?
  2. What meaning am I giving it right now? Why am I giving it that meaning? (And be honest with yourself and question your motives.)
  3. What meaning could I give this event, situation or condition that would help me to get what I desire?
  4. What meaning could I give this to create a win-win situation with this person(s) involved in this situation?
  5. Then decide to give positive meaning to what happened that empowers you to achieve your goals and bless the other people as well!

Take this as a new belief in your life as well. “I choose to give positive meaning to everything that happens and…

Also, in order to really be 100% responsible for your life and results take this belief as your own too…“Every problem brings with it the seed of a greater benefit.” And it’s true. Every problem contains its own solution. When I say that, people go nuts. They tell me; “But Carlos, how can you say that gargabe. How can my problem of not being able to pay my bills every month contain the solution to that problem?” Well if you think about it, if you don’t have enough money to pay your bills, what would the solution to that problem be? Have enough money to pay your bills, right? And they tell me, yes Carlos but I don’t have it. To which I say, you have to find a way to make more money in order to pay them, right?

The problem is that people don’t want to abandon their role as victim. I know that the financial situation is ugly in many places. But, there’s always somebody making money.  Even in countries where there doesn’t exist much opportunity, I hear and read of people creating extraordinary life styles selling products, building marketing networks, selling product or information on the Internet! There’s always a way if you’re committed. There’s always a way if you’re willing to look at things differently and look for the seed of a greater benefit. So look for the greater benefit in everything that happens.

In the solutions of your problems lies the success and wealth you dream of.

Take this mantra as your own too:  “If it’s to be, it’s up to me!”

These beliefs alone will make a massive shift in your life beginning today!

Last week I gave you an opportunity to receive a special report on how to win big time in business. I screwed up in not putting the link very accessible for very long on the video and many people missed it. So I’m going to put it up again so you can take advantage of it. I would love to get your input and comments on what it is that really motivates you so I created a simple, fast and fun to do survey.

I’d love to get your feedback on this super important and controversial topic. So please answer the three fun questions by clicking on the button below! This is not your typical survey. These are fun. Just answer those questions and I will send you my special report that I’ve just created specifically for this purpose. It’s called “How To Crush It”, which is on how to set and achieve your biggest goals with lightning speed.
