You must know where you are headed to have any chance of getting there. Let's develop your vision, create your blueprint for success and identify any beliefs that may be holding your back.
Here's how to ensure you have the mindset to create your dream life.
By supercharging your awareness and changing your perspective, you will recognize which associations and habits have created the life you have now. This is key to getting the results you are looking for. Remember, (1) your beliefs create your actions; (2) your actions create your habits; and (3) your habits create your results.
Put the systems in place to make it super-easy to solidify your successes and extremely difficult to return to your old habits. On the most basic level, you are burning the bridge back to your old life.
There is only forward. There is only growth. There is only greatness!
Accountability partners help us to do what we are supposed to do. If your house is dirty and your parents are coming to visit, you will probably clean every room you think they will see. If the CEO asks you to put a proposal together, you are going to have more effort than if a coworker made the same request.
Each of us cares what others think about us. In the wrong circumstances, this can lead to fear and paralysis. In the right situation, it can boost our motivation to continue.
For you to successfully transform your life and conquer your fears, you must reward yourself. Think about it; if your mind believes you are removing an activity you enjoy, how likely is it to agree? For you to ease the transition into your greatness, you must show your mind it is not losing, but gaining an additional reward.
By frequently rewarding yourself, you are encouraging the continuation of your journey.
Whenever your fears keep you from transforming your life, you are not living in the present moment. If you are living in the past, then you are reminding yourself of your previous mistakes. You are worried about repeating them and this can make it stressful to continue. If you are focused too much on the future, then you feel overwhelmed by all the possible outcomes.
To harness your courage and greatness, you have to allow yourself to take your transformation one-step at a time.
