Michael Beckwith: Leave Mediocrity Behind You
We often think of pain as bad. Whether you’re going through a breakup, getting let go from a job, or making a big move, the experience is uncomfortable. But you need that feeling to truly make changes in your life. It’s how you can adopt new thought patterns and let go of old habits. Think back on your own challenging experiences and how it affected your outlook. You are the person you are today because something made you want to rise above mediocrity. On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I talk about the mindset of abundance and the power of pain with the founder of the Agape International Spiritual Center: Michael Beckwith.

Everything happening in your life is a direct response to your actions. You have to let go of the belief systems that are holding you back. They might have served you in the past, but they are keeping you where you are. For this Five Minute Friday, I revisited a conversation I had with Lisa Nichols where she shared how she developed an abundance mindset that took her from being a single mom on welfare to a millionaire entrepreneur. Lisa Nichols is one of the world’s most-requested motivational speakers, is the best-selling author of seven books, and is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Motivating the Masses, Inc.
