I know EXACTLY where you are going to walk today—-and I’ve secretly placed an unfolded $20 bill down on your path.
1) see it
2) pick it up, if you did see it?
Nearly everyone PREDICTS they’d do both 1 + 2.
But only a subset of people actually DO when this happens to them.
In fact, when the scenario I shared above was turned into an official experiment*–the results were pretty shocking.
(Out of the hundreds of experiments I’ve studied of over the years, this ONE single study epitomizes the work we do at MindFix more than any other.
Here’s all you need to know:
There were 2 groups of students: one group that scored “normal”, another that scored as pessimistic/depressed (with a negative outlook on life).
Money was put on the ground right in the path where the individuals were told to walk.
While nearly everyone in the “normal” group saw the money and picked it up…
…a significant portion of people in the pessimistic group
THEY DIDN’T NOTICE THE MONEY
THAT WAS LITERALLY RIGHT THERE
ON THE GROUND
WAITING FOR THEM
(and no, they weren’t on cell phones at the time).
THIS is the science behind “What you EXPECT in your life is EXACTLY what you will see (or NOT see).”
This theme is literally controlling my life right now.
What you EXPECT of yourself, of others, of your kids, of your spouse, of your life (from “People are cruel” to “My spouse is lazy” to “I’m unstoppable”) determines what you experience and what you see — to the point where you can’t even SEE MONEY sitting on the ground waiting for you.
Imagine walking over money every day in your business.
Imagine walking past ridiculous opportunities presenting themselves to you (and dismissing them).
Imagine being presented with everything you need to succeed… and thinking “it’s not there”.
It happens to my clients (and we clean off their lenses super quickly so they can see again),
it happens to me,
it happens to you.
This is what determines the trajectory of your life.
^^^^ We’re all the same in that regard.
Here’s what this means to you:
The ONLY difference between us all….
….is that some people are open to admitting they have blind spots and work relentlessly to clean them….
….while others continue to INSIST there was never any money on the ground where THEY walked.
you get to choose.
*This study was originally shared with me by one of the most brilliant people I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with in my adult life. Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to find an online reference to the study but I didn’t want that to stop me from sharing the general lesson I learned from it and that’s made such an impact on me for so long. If you’re upset by the fact I’m not referencing the exact study here, it’s cool, you can just choose to skip today’s opportunity I’m offering you.
When you're tired of getting in your own way, and you know you're capable of SO much more, it's time to talk to us.
