Succeeding in 2018

If you are like me, your focus at the moment will be on your goals and plans to make 2018 your best year ever.

Its not too late, yes its February already but its never too late to set goals.

Why? Because, as we have all heard, failing to plan is often really planning to fail. Just by investing the time to sit down and write your rough list of goals, right now for 2018, you will be ahead of 90% of the population to actually achieve your goals in 2018.

In one of my last blogs, we started off by exploring Success and the beliefs we hold around it. We then looked at having an abundance mentality and how this mental attitude allows you to see opportunities that may even be hidden in less than ideal circumstances. I then said that in our next segment I would reveal to you some basic tools to create new beliefs and turn them into powerful convictions.

You’ve heard the line ”You are what you eat!” and it’s easy to recognise the effect on our bodies, for better or worse, of what we put into it. How much more so then do our thoughts feed us. Your beliefs create your reality. Some people have a tendency towards doubt and negative self beliefs, which can really hold them back. If you fall into this category the good news is that you can change and be more positive about yourself by making an effort to change your thinking. Change can only happen only if we associate massive pain to an old belief.   

First of all, catch yourself saying things that are negative, sceptical or cynical, and one by one eradicate them from your inner and outer dialogue. Choose to focus on all the positives, on all the things that are going right in your life, rather than the things that aren’t going right. Seek inspiration in other people who have done great things. Read about people who have achieved great results.  

Have a read of this powerful statement;

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world.” The BUDDHA

Here’s an Assignment for you:

  1. Write down all negative emotions or thoughts that you experience in an average week.
  2. List the scenarios or situations you find yourself feeling or saying something negative.
  3. Come up with an antidote for each negative emotion and use one of the following tools for responding to it.  Let’s say I have the thought “Gee , this is hopeless..” the antidote could be saying instead “What Can I learn from this right now?”

Ask yourself:

    1. Do I need to change the words I use to describe this experience?
    2. Do I need to change what I believe about this emotional state?
    3. Do I need to ask myself a new and better question? Be sure to consistently focus on solutions instead of problems.

Commit throughout these next few weeks to replacing the old, limiting emotions with a new empowering emotion, and conduct this pattern until it’s consistent.  In this way you can change old negative thoughts or beliefs into positive convictions.

In the next segment I will share with you The Power of Goals.

“The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.” MICHELANGELO


Until next time, let's do something remarkable!
