Let’s review, by now you have figured out:

What is most important to you? What does your ideal life look like? And you have determined your plan and where to find accountability?

Now here is the glue that makes it all stick together, the conditioning of your mind. Every thought that enters our conscious or unconscious mind has an effect on us. We must closely monitor and analyze what we allow into our mind.

Quick example: I used to fall asleep with my TV on, OOO boy! Never again! Who knows what is on and what is being put into my mind while I am sleeping.

Looking at the simplest little things like this can make a huge difference. Now, when I am going to sleep, I may leave a personal development audio on or some hypnosis stuff that is mentally enlightening. These are just some quick examples about effortless steps you can take.

What will require effort on your part is consciously identifying the information you intake on a daily basis.  Who’s opinions do you listen to, what situations you focus on and how you interpret them. We are all subjected to negativity on an ongoing basis, there is no avoiding it, but what we can avoid is allowing it to influence our focus away from where it needs to be.

When you have set that laser focus on you goal and you know without equivocation YOU WILL ACCOMPLISH IT there should be no opinion or news that will influence you to think otherwise. So often I meet people out networking and their main theme is “yea we are just surviving right now trying to stick out these rough times.” Now I understand business is slower in various industries, but I also know many industries are flourishing right now. There is no shortage of opportunity, just a shortage of ambitions and determination.

In the industry I am in we put a high value on personal development and it amazes me the people who I have had to reject working with simply because their incoachability. The majority of people have a negative outlook to start with, but when you are committed to it, that is when you have a problem. If this is you, CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE! Life is too short to dwell on what may happen, or the what if’s. Life is about abundance and liveliness, happiness and love, health and prosperity, just soooo many good things and all of them are at your finger tips.

Learning what we want isn’t very difficult, creating the plan, developing accountability to both your partners and yourself is going to make you take actions. But, once all this is complete the real adventure begins because once you learn what the mind is capable of there is no unlearning it. As seeking the positive attributes in other people and situations becomes second nature you will find yourself gravitating to success. It just happens like that!  Associations will change, income will change, life will change, but first YOU MUST CHANGE!

These four simple steps are what it takes to make a dramatic change in your lifestyle, are you up for it?!?

To YOUR success!

Good Luck

I was reading “The New Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz, in Chapter 9 “How to Avoid Activating Your Automatic Failure Mechanism” while speaking about dealing with misdirected aggression I came across this phrase “Knowledge GIVES YOU Power.”

Being that I entered the business community at a younger age I still have friends that are in college, also, while networking, I have made many friends who have been in business for years. It fascinates me mingling with those who have accomplished what I aspire to achieve, however it saddens me that I am not yet able to articulate it well enough to friends closer to my age the knowledge is NOT power.

I have heard it countless times from college students, “let me just get my degree and I will be securely making money and enjoying life.” It amuses me for a moment then it brings up much concern. College does not ever seem to educate students why they should find people who have achieved what they want and become their protégé. Instead they send students off to get an internship to make nothing and find out they don’t like the position. Where is the value of college going!?!

With all the value we put on education, and so many people spending hundreds of thousands of dollars going to a university, why is it that statistically 60%+ of people don’t ever read a book voluntarily after graduating ever again? Simple, knowledge isn’t power at all, knowledge GIVES YOU power. It is applied knowledge that can empower anyone. Knowledge is no more than your brain absorbing unorganized facts, many of which you never even use.

The power that knowledge gives is unlimited, but it is up to us to learn how to apply that knowledge in the most environmentally friendly and profitable way possible. I encourage you to define your goals as clearly as possible, and search for those who have already achieved it then model them as closely as possible.

Have a great day and let the search begin!
