We all have limiting beliefs of what we think we can achieve – this is embedded in your subconscious mind which runs most of your life on autopilot and is far stronger than your conscious mind.
Consciously you may think you can achieve a particular goal, but if your subconscious does not believe it, you are doomed to failure in achieving the results - you will not follow through. Your beliefs are ingrained in the subconscious as a result of what information it has been fed since childhood – it has taken a lifetime to install those beliefs.
If you don’t really believe in a result, you automatically limit your potential. How much action do we take if we don’t believe we can achieve the result? - little or none - which leads to poor results which re-enforces our limiting beliefs - leading to us telling ourselves – “You see, I told you it would not work” - which leads to even less action if we ‘try next time’. It is a vicious self-fulfilling cycle of failure.
Well, just as we have this negative self-fulfilling cycle leading to failure, if we ‘reverse this subconscious machine’, we can create a self-fulfilling success cycle that can become self perpetuating!
So, how or where do we break this chicken/egg cycle to create a ‘success machine’?
You start with belief
If you don’t believe, how do you grow belief ? - to realize your real potential - and take massive action - giving massive results - which strengthens your belief - by tapping into more potential…
You practice in your head… you visualize the end result you want in your mind – this reprograms the subconscious through repetition and eventually overcomes your beliefs that 'it can’t be done'… to 'it’s possible'… to 'I have already done it'.
This secret is the difference between the 5% who have it all and the 95% who don’t. You get certainty by ‘practicing’ the result in your head every day and then you take massive action to manifest it.
So what now?
Step 1. You have to decide what you really want. I call it a step, but this is actually a complete process that you cannot avoid. It may be the single most difficult task you have to complete. Decide what you want and then create a detailed vision of what you want – make sure you create the life you really want in your vision. This is a very important step so if you need help, you can use Brian Tracy's goal planning system. * compensated affiliate
Step 2. What is the one single goal, that if you achieved it, would remove 80% of the barriers to you creating the life you want? This could be a belief, a financial goal, a relationship goal, a health goal, a spiritual goal… any single goal that is going to motivate and drive you every day to look forward to the day and taking massive action on the road to creating the life that excites you and motivates you.
Step 3. Define on paper exactly what that goal is and state it as if you have already achieved it.
Step 4. Now you are ready to take the Four Percent Challenge. The Challenge is a vehicle to achieving your goals - a means to an end. The success technology is integrated in the 'vehicle' and you use the vehicle to drive the path to your goals.
Time to take action and develop that success mindset!
