Day 5 – How to change your life in 11 days

The importance of believing in yourself.

I remember setting goals in the past…

The second I wrote them down my stomach hurt, I felt nauseous and as much as I wanted to believe I could achieve them in my mind I doubted my ability to make them happen.

I’m a dreamer, but I felt like a phony to my friends and family.

I would tell them all the amazing places I was going to go, the home by the beach I going to live in and the adventures we were going to take.

As much as they wanted to agree with me, I knew deep down inside they were mumbling under their breath, yeah Mike I will believe it when I see it.

I was filled with so much disappointment, frustration and feelings of inadequacy.

I had a Belief that God had a bigger plan for me than just working at a job.

I Believed my time would come even though I wondered many times if it would ever happen and how long it was going to take.

When I started Modernized-Lifestyle, I Believed with all my heart that this was the moment that I had been groomed for all my life.

I had come to a place in my life where I was ready to be lead.

Like they say, “When the student is ready the teacher appears”.

One of my favorite quotes in today’s video is “its not if you can see you believe it” its “If you can believe it you can see it”.

Your business, your life, your life relationships or anything else you want change, will not happen if you don’t Believe it will happen.

Each of us has to recondition our mind every single day that its possible.

Its possible to build a massive business, its possible to live our dreams, its possible to live life on our terms filled with passion joy and happiness.


In order for all of this to happen the person you are has to die to allow the person you deserve to be to take its place.

Which doesn’t mean that your amazing qualities that make you who you are have to die, BUT the parts of you that are holding you back have to die in order for you the real you to emerge.

Think about an antique piece of furniture that has been beaten up over the years, its tarnished, has a few dings in it, one of the legs is falling off BUT when its restored with care and love paying close attention to detail it becomes something so extraordinary it takes your breath away.

Each of us is no different!

The scars we have are what makes us so extraordinary…

Take today to be real with yourself, to step outside of yourself and examine the wounds we have inside, to realize the wounds you have give you the ability to change your own life and the lives of so many people around you!

When you do this you will turn those wounds into gifts to share with the world.

People will be drawn to you in a way that cannot be explained. People will identify with you as REAL, as someone they want to follow, as someone they trust to lead them.

The interesting thing is that what we see as scars are the very thing others see as beautiful, real, genuine which is why they are drawn to you.

Today YOU have the ability to REINVENT yourself into the person you have always wanted to be!

I Believe in each of you!!!
