Want success? You have to reprogram your mind for it.
So of course we all want success. We all would love nothing more than to be successful in life. We want that ideal. We’d like to make good money, do good work, help people, feel accomplished and thrive.
Unfortunately, most will just survive. And here’s the wildest part about life and those who succeed. They are no different than you and I. I’ve been there. I’ve had my fair share of struggles. Traumas that kept me stuck. Unable to thrive and do what I needed to do powerfully to see my goals and ambitions through.
I know, I know it sounds so cheesy to say all of those things, those one liners, the metaphors, but here’s the deal. There’s a reason for them. They are actually true.
You do become what you think of. Positive attitudes do make a difference in our world. Focus on prosperity and you will begin to prosper.
As one of my favorite teachers Jim Kwik says – he does not have time for negativity. Every time a negative thought enters he redirects his focus to something powerful or positive.
Changing Your Mindset
So today – I want to talk about mindset and how incredibly important it is. It is actually the key component to your success. It’s all in your mind. How do you see it? What do you believe is possible for yourself? What is the self talk? What’s the story you tell yourself?
Do you say things like, “It’ll never happen.” Or “it’s so hard.” “I’m always going to be broke.” “I just won’t get there.”
Do you ever catch yourself saying things like this? Do you vision a reality for yourself that is far greater than your actually reality? Dr. Joe Dispenza – one of my favorite teachers in this space has incredible insights to share with us. He says in order for our circumstances to change we have to reprogram our minds. We have to detach from negativity and negative thoughts. We have to learn to redirect our focus. We have to commit to doing it in a different way.
One of my favorite books by Dr. Joe Dispenza – Breaking The Habit Of Being Yourself: How To Lose Your Mind And Create A New One.
Visualization – Seeing It Into Being
That way requires feeding our minds with a visionary train of mind. We have to visualize with all of our senses that ultimate outcome.
So here’s what that looks like. You want a house on the beach? You have to feel the ocean air on your cheeks? You have to smell the ocean breeze? You have to hear the waves pounding on the shore. And of course see the ocean as clear as day before you. And the more you do this the more you activate your deep subconscious and the more your mind begins to retrain itself towards that goal. You begin to feel it and sense it with all your senses to a point that your mind, your subconscious mind that is begins to start to work towards that desire.
Little steps. Itty bitty baby steps will indeed get you there. It’s just learning to start and then you begin taking those steps to actualize that desire.
Shakti Gawain wrote Creative Visualization decades ago offering great clarity to the power of manifesting through visualizing.
Here are the four basic steps for effective creative visualization.
The Experiences Are There To Teach Us
How Do We Do This?
Every experience in lie is a lesson. You have to learn to shift your mindset around failure or hangups, the little bumps and hiccups. When you make a mistake or fail, it’s perfectly natural to be upset.
Take time with that upset. Be with the upset. That’s exactly what you should do.
And then let it go. Step away from the actual upset and look at the bigger picture. Look at the lesson. There is something you’ve gained, a deeper wisdom or learning from the upset.
Go deeper with it. Give it great thought and you will prevail. Ask what you did wrong, and what you would do differently next time. How you could do better?
That failure is a stepping stone to an accomplishment or achievement in the future.
If you lack information, go find it. Read, study, talk to other people in your industry – and then take what you’ve learned to heart and use it in the future.
Don’t let that little bump in the road define the journey. It’s only one part of the journey. And it might actually be the part that takes you to the next level.
It might be in that moment that you realize your own mistake.
