Basic Tips for Programming Your Mind for Success
Typically, your worst enemy is your very own mind. If you really look carefully at your past, you’ll be able to see that it was you that prevented you from reaching your goals- no one else got in your way. So, what can you to program your mind for success? Just like a computer- you tell it like it is going to be. You program it to be helpful instead of harmful. Following are 4 keys to programming your mind for success that you can start using right way.
Build a List of “I Am” Statements
One of the best ways to leave your goals unmet is to remind yourself of everything you’re not. If you believe that you’ll never be good enough/smart enough- then that is what will become your reality. You stop trying because you’ve already convinced yourself that it’s not going to happen.
If you want to combat this unhealthy, unproductive behavior, build a list of “I AM” statements. Take the time to reflect on and list everything you do have that will help you be successful. Your list should say things such as: “I am….”
- Not a quitter
- A hard worker
When you start feeling that shadow of self-doubt creeping in, pull that list out and read it. Keep reminding yourself of all of the wonderful qualities that you do have that will be helpful along your journey to success and your mind will begin responding in kind by drawing upon these strengths when you most need them.
If you continue to remind yourself that you can’t or won’t ever reach your goal, then your mind will manifest that into reality. After all, your mind won’t waste its energy on something that you’ve told it is not going to happen.
When there’s something that you want to achieve, you must promote it. You must tell your mind that it’s not only possibly going to happen- but more than likely going to. There are no other options other than to succeed. When you do this, success is what will happen.
The same goes for the way that you speak. If the only thing you ever talk about are your hurdles, then they get bigger and harder to clear. On the other hand, when you speak only positive words, your mind is encouraged to keep going and those hurdles that got in your way in the past will be minimized.
When you express gratitude for all of the wonderful things in your world, you are setting up your mind to be open to new, good things. Basically, you’re sending a positive energy out into the world that will draw more positive energy back into your soul.
So, when something happens, be sure to look for the good in the situation. Just because something doesn’t appear to be positive doesn’t mean that something good can’t come out of it. There are times when you will just need to look a little harder or dig a little deeper. When you have an attitude of gratitude in life, your mind will keep pointing out all those things that you do have to be grateful for.
If you want an activity that will help program your mind for success, meditation is the answer you are looking for. It will not only be helpful for managing stress/anxiety that keeps you from reaching your goals- it will help you get some clarity so that you can look at things from a more objective standpoint.
Set aside a few minutes each day to focus on your breathing. Allow everything else to fall away from your mind. When you can clear out all of the fog caused by your self-defeating, negative thoughts, you are creating a lot more room for positive beliefs that will help increase your chances of success.
Your mind really does hold the power to bring your dreams into fruition. Now that you know how to properly reprogram your mind using MindMasters, success will surely be yours.
