Slave Thinking

“I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore.”

This famous line from the 1976 movie Network, became so famous because it hit a nerve with the audience. There are many who feel as if they are stuck in life. Stuck in a job they either hate or could care less about. Stuck in toxic relationships that are eating them from the inside out. Stuck with too much month left over when their money runs out. And tired of always being the statue instead of the pigeon. When they feel like their going to burst, they pop a few pills, drink a few beers or have a few glasses of wine. Anything to numb the pain.

This is the life of the majority of people. They do nothing to change their life circumstances because they don’t believe they can. They don’t understand that they have the ability to design the life of their dreams. This is slave thinking. Knowing your life is not what you intended, yet doing nothing to change it because your beliefs tell you that you can’t. Too many believe they are not good enough, not smart enough, too lazy or lacking the right skills or knowledge. They believe that those who succeed do so because they were born into the right family, went to the right schools, had the right connections, etc. The fact is, success in life comes not in playing a good hand, but in playing the hand you were dealt. According to my data, and supported by independent third party data, 69-80% of all millionaires were self-made. They came from poverty or the middle-class. How is it possible that they were able to break free from their poverty or mediocre lives and achieve success?

We are all born with a genius gene. Every single human being possesses the capacity for greatness. Slave thinking keeps the genius gene switch in the off position. You need to stop being a slave to your thoughts and create new, positive, good thoughts. You need to transform your thinking from a victim mindset to a can-do mindset. You need to become disgusted with your life. You need to rise up and scream,”I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore.”
