Motivational Guru Lisa Nichols Talks Candidly About The Hard Road To Success
Back in the 90s, Lisa Nichols was on public assistance with $11.42 in her bank account. Fast forward to 2016, Lisa is jet-setting the world and running Motivating the Masses, a publicly traded, multi-million dollar company.
Check out some of the interview highlights:
Lisa Nichols's on her latest book, "Abundance Now":
"I began to gather the steps, and the series, and the processes and really began to look at what I did. What did I do to go from 1994 [where] I was on public assistance … to today running a multi-million dollar business, living a first class life and … my son's life is barely recognizable. He can't remember his beanies and weenies days. 'Abundance Now' is really what I would call the closest road map that I can give someone."
On navigating her way through "backslide moments":
"There were times when I was walking and I looked to my left and my right and realized that there was no one with me. I was walking by myself. There was a time when I made it to the finish line and I looked back and there was carcasses all over the ground. I killed off everybody along the way to making it because I was so focused on the finish line that the relationships died away, the friendships died away, because I didn't return enough phone calls, I didn't spend enough time. I'm very clear that abundance has a price that you will pay for and you have to decide, "do I want to live an abundant life and what's the best way to inform myself so that my cost is minimal, so that it's a measured cost?"
On why women need to become abundant thinkers:
"So many people make decisions based on emotion. Abundant thinkers make decisions based on information. And so while longing and emotion are on the sideline – they're' in the passenger seat or the back seat – emotion is never in the driver's seat of an abundant thinker. Average thinkers will allow emotions to be in the driver's seat. Average thinkers are managing their lives 30 days at a time. Abundant thinkers are managing their lives 12-18 months at a time."
