“There’s a storm outside. The wind is strong and the rain slams against the windows of the apartment. I’m writing this post with a warm cup of coffee next to the laptop. In Sweden, where me and my family used to live, the kids would’ve been off to school in an hour. But not in New Caledonia. Today this island will push the pause button because the weather is bad. The kids will be happy when they wake up and realize there’s no school today. I love it!”
So what is happening on the road of constant improvement?
I’m pondering this one thing right now. The search for success often lies in trying to find the right answers. But how do we know if we’re asking the right questions?
So I decided to make a quiz out from some questions that successful people ask themselves. This will be nr7 of my “No Sweat!” challenge.
Grab a pen and paper folks. Here goes nothing :
The broad perspective…
Figure out what you want to do.
Explain why you want to do it.
Figure out what kind of person you have to become to make that happen.
Then program your mind to make it happen.
The nitty gritty…
What do I actually want?
What do I love to do?
What is my problem?
What can I do about it?
- Every time you have a negative thought, replace it with a positive one. Here’s an example, let’s say you catch yourself thinking “I can’t do that!” simply change it to “I can do that!”.
What you need to understand and believe is that you are in control of your own thoughts. The tricky part is to be mindful enough to catch yourself in the moment when being negative. That’s a skill in it self.
Make sure your positive thoughts are empowering you and helps you get closer to your goals.
Read “2% better” on how to train yourself to become more mindful.
All top athletes use some sort of visualization technique. One way to program your mind is to listen to guided visualization. This will program your subconscious mind for success. Practice doing detailed visualizations. See yourself accomplishing your goal and feel it as if it is happening right now.
What’s worth knowing is that this can be used in all kinds of areas of your life. Love, business, routines, addictions and much more.
Read “The prefrontal cortex simulator” for more information about visualization.
Success does not come from winning the lottery. It comes from carefully mapping out and understanding what the word means to you.
