Aligning the Mind to Help you Succeed

So you know what you really want, you’ve set yourself some SMART goals, developed an awesome Action Plan and now you’re excitedly waiting for the results – so how could you possibly be in your own way of achieving this amazing future?

Unfortunately, when it comes to achieving success, we are usually our own worst enemies and often, without even thinking about it, we sabotage our own efforts.

Have you ever been on a diet and then completely had a binge? Or been saving for a holiday and you spend it all on meaningless stuff? Don’t worry, we’ve all been there.

So how do you stop yourself from sabotaging your goals? There are a number of things you can try to help you identify what’s holding you back and more importantly, how to get ahead and we’ll be touching on some of these over the next few newsletters.

In the mean time, you can try some of the following techniques yourself:

Embrace the Law of Attraction

The Law of Attraction states that "whatever we think about, we bring about". This law may initially seem like new age fluff but believe it or not, there are scientific merits to this proposition. The top quantum physicists of our time have discovered that our universe and our reality is very much directed by the "observer".

The Law of Attraction is indifferent to the words preceding your thought. Whatever you think about you will attract into your life. When you think "I don't understand why bad things always happen to me?", you are "attracting" bad things into your life.

When you think "I want to get out of debt", you are attracting more debt into your life. When you think "I'm worried I will get sick", you are attracting sickness into your life! The Law of Attraction brings about what you focus on even if it is not what you want.

If you understand this principle, here are some examples of how to make the law of attraction work to support you rather than to act against you. Try observing your thoughts and changing your thinking in the following way:

"I want to get out of debt" to "I want to earn amazing riches"

"I hate my boss" to "I look forward to owning my own business"

"I'm stressed about this project" to "I always create amazing results in my projects"

"I'm worried about getting sick" to "I experience vibrant health daily"

Now that we have a better understanding of the Law of Attraction, it is no surprise why so many people struggle with regards to money. It has been said that "the rich get richer while the poor get poorer". This is actually the Law of Attraction in action. Because the wealthy have money, they often think about how to best use their money and hence they attract more money. The poor on the other hand often think about their present lack of money and unfortunately, that also attracts lack into their lives.

Use Positive Affirmations

It's a fact that the human subconscious has the power to make people's dreams come true. That's because the subconscious mind processes everything we say, do, and think.

If we think positive thoughts about ourselves, the sub-conscious goes about turning those thoughts into reality. Of course, the opposite is also true if we program our subconscious mind with negative thoughts. It helps eliminate negative and limiting beliefs and transforms your comfort zone from a limited one keeping you trapped in mediocrity to a more expanded one where anything is possible. It helps to replace your “I cant’s” with “I cans,” and your fears and doubts with confidence and certainty.

Affirmations are an accepted way to send positive programming messages to the subconscious. Affirmations are short, positive messages that are usually repeated out loud. By phrasing these affirmations as if they are already true, the subconscious mind goes to work to make them become true.

For example:

  • I am now creating total financial success
  • I now love and accept my self
  • I am confident and capable
