"Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve."
— Napoleon Hill
People generally fail at achieving their goals and completing their projects for one of three reasons: poor systems, not clearly defining their goal/project or self sabotage (conscious or unconscious). We’re going to focus on how to get out of your own way in order to overcome obstacles.
Remember the Law of Attraction?
Your predominant thoughts determine your level of "vibration" and the level you vibrate at determines what you attract to yourself.
Since science has determined that, at the fundamental level, everything is vibrating, the question becomes: What level are you vibrating at?
Are your thoughts generally positive or negative? While we all rush to say "Positive!", it’s actually easy to tell. . .just take a look at your results. You manifest what you think about (consciously AND unconsciously) and what your mind focuses on expands.
I know you’re thinking, "But Sandy, I think good thoughts all the time so why am I still struggling?"
Your unconscious mind can’t tell the difference between positive or negative; it just follows the lead from your conscious mind.
When our thoughts run on auto-pilot, our unconscious mind rehashes the thoughts we’ve programmed into it over the years and yet we are somehow surprised at what shows up in our lives. This is considered creating your life by default.
When we deliberately redirect our thoughts to what we want to create in our lifes however, we are controlling our conscious mind and it begins reprogramming our unconscious.
You can either manifest your reality consciously, by choice, or you can believe that life is random. Which are you going to do?
Let’s look at four ways to get what you consciously choose.
1. Your mindset.
To change your mindset, you must focus on what you DO WANT, not what you don’t want. Eliminate phrases such as "I don’t want" or "I have to" or "I need" as these phrases focus on the negative and the unconscious mind can’t process a negative, so when you say "I don’t want to have debt", your unconscious hears "have debt".
Instead, say what you want. "I want 7 new clients this month" or "I want to make $10,600 this month". Focus on the positive.
Additionally, it’s important for you to reflect on what you have in life and be grateful for it — every day.
2. Your skills.
Take a look at your goals and evaluate if you currently have the skills to accomplish them. If not, sign up for a course or a teleseminar that will give you those skills. By upgrading your skillset, you automatically tell the universe that you are ready to step up.
3. Your actions.
Your actions should reflect the new mindset you are working on — your behavior/habits directly support your thoughts. If you want to be a millionaire business owner, start acting like one. Look around your office — is there clutter everywhere? If so, get rid of it and start thinking of your business as a million dollar business (don’t spend recklessly, but invest in yourself and your team).
4. Your environment.
Have you created a Vision Board/Dream Board with pictures of your ideal life? Have you written out your goals and affirmations and put them where you will see them daily?
General consensus says that you are the average of the five people you hang around most. Are you hanging out with people who are supportive of you and your goals and who make you "stretch" just a bit or with people who are always dragging you down (I call them "negative nellies")?
It’s your life! Create an environment that supports, rather than thwarts, you.
