The Differences Between Middle Class and World Class Mental Toughness

From the beginning I want to say that this is not referring to income levels ( although these levels of consciousness do reflect in your income levels ). What the author, Steve Siebold, is referring to is levels of consciousness. If you have been listening to my inspirational talks or coming around this blog for any length of time you will notice one overriding theme: you have to change your mind in order to change your life.

Your thinking has brought you this far. It has even brought you to this information that you’re reading today. If will continue bringing you similar information until you have acted upon and asked it to reveal the next step in your journey. Network marketers know that they have to make some major changes in their thinking for them to succeed at great levels in this industry.

Often you will hear that your opportunity is a personal development company wrapped around a product or service. Well, what type of development are you creating?

I pulled the following illustration to help you understand some thinking processes that you may want to adapt. ( I don’t agree with ALL of them but I do agree with over 90% of them. )

  1. The Middle Class competes… the World Class creates.

  2. The Middle Class avoids risk… the World Class manages risk.

  3. The Middle Class lives in delusion… the World Class lives in objective reality.

  4. The Middle Class to be comfortable… the World Class is comfortable being uncomfortable.

  5. The Middle Class has a lottery mentality… the World Class has an abundance mentality.

  6. The Middle Class hungers for security… the World Class doesn’t believe that security exists.

  7. The Middle Class sacrifices growth for safety… the World Class sacrifices safety for growth.

  8. The Middle Class operates out of fear and scarcity… the World Class operates from love and abundance.

  9. The Middle Class focuses on having… the World Class focuses on being.

  10. The Middle Class sees themselves as victims… the World Class sees themselves as responsible.

  11. The Middle Class slows down… the World Class calms down.

  12. The Middle Class is frustrated… the World Class is grateful.

  13. The Middle Class has pipedreams… the World Class has vision.

  14. The Middle Class is ego-driven… the World Class is spirit driven.

  15. The Middle Class is problem oriented… the World Class is solution oriented.

  16. The Middle Class thinks they know enough… the World Class is eager to learn.

  17. The Middle Class chooses fear… the World Class chooses growth.

  18. The Middle Class is boastful… the World Class is humble.

  19. The Middle Class trades time for money… the World Class trades ideas for money.

  20. The Middle Class denies their intuition… the World Class embraces their intuition.

  21. The Middle Class seeks riches… the World Class seeks wealth.

  22. The Middle Class believes their vision only when they see it… the World Class knows they will see their vision when they believe it.

  23. The Middle Class coaches through logic… the World Class coaches through emotion.

  24. The Middle Class speaks the language of fear… the World Class speaks the language of love.

  25. The Middle Class believes problem solving stems from knowledge… the World Class believes problem solving stems from will.

Where is your mental toughness?

Are you working on a Middle Class consciousness but want a World Class one? This can happen for you. I know that it can. The secrets is that: you have the potential to change where you are because you are still alive. You can’t take promises to the grave with you and still expect them to be achieved. You can’t take your dreams for your own life with you to heaven and expect to accomplish them. You can’t live off of “I coulda’s” and “I woulda’s”.

You can live your life to its fullest with the proper mental toughness. Go check out this book. It’s a great read and will help you to see your daily routines more clearly as they relate to what you have achieved in your life so far. This is a good book for showing and teaching you the differences between where you are and where you can be.
