We all have an innate desire to protect what we already have and our ego will go to great lengths to make sure that what drives us will make us look good and get it right. One of our key drivers is to feel a sense of certainty in our lives and to feel significant.
For some, self doubt will creep in and for a few this may lead to feelings of hopelessness or helplessness fueled by a lack of choice. Yet others will demonstrate a great flexibility in their behaviour and choose to focus on what they want. The mind is a funny thing, it’s actually a great goal setting machine and it will take you to where ever you choose to go..
The reality is that we all have a choice on what we focus on and you need to develop a keen sense of knowing if you are getting what you really want.
Check in using various strategies – ask yourself if you can see, hear or feel if this is right for you.
Check your language – is it positive or negative? The mind works in symbols and you can shift the way that you are thinking about you by creating a vision that is exciting and inspiring.
Make it a clear vision and start to take responsibility for your goals and aspirations. I’m sure you have heard the saying “life is not a dress rehearsal”. Take a moment to go within and set some goals to be the best you can be…. knowing that you have most of the resources that you need within you already!
Steps to take:
- Be clear about the outcome.
- Take action
- Be aware if what you are doing is working
- Be willing to be flexible if necessary
- Believe…..trust your unconscious mind as it will always tell you what it needs…. are you listening to it?
