Happy New Year! Time For Change!!

Happy New Year! Time For Change!!Wouldn’t be amazing if you could change your whole life this year? I have not been around my blog for a while. In order to hit the ground running you had to have started planning in October. Mainly because you want to train your mind to a new reality. That is exactly what I was doing. I was preparing my new marketing funnel for this year. It is ready and active. As the year goes I will make many changes but it was good to get it going for this year. You probably know if you decided to do a new years resolution and you did not plan it 3 month ago that your are behind the eight ball. Still that is not a reason to give up. The trick is not to do what ninety percent of the people that make new years resolutions do. Nothing!! I want to take you through a process that has been changing my life over the past few month.

Over the last 15 years I have been fascinated with the psychology of change. Mainly because I believe in the ability of anyone to be able to do anything they want to do. Especially as it pertains to wealth and abundance. The human mind is an incredible programmable machine. Unlike physical skills I believe mental skills for the most part are reproducible by anyone as long as you know what to do. Over the next couple of weeks I want to go over a way of being able to get anything you want, and changing your life.

 

One of my favorite questions to ask people that I work with is – If you continue doing the same thing that you are doing right now for the next year where will you be? Most people although they know that doing the same thing and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity they just find themselves stuck. In order to change you need to reprogram yourself. Most people struggle all their lives an can’t seem to find out why. The main reason is because they have not reprogrammed their mind to easily and effortlessly accomplish what they conscious mind desires. We all struggle whether it is financially, in relationships or physical. What most people don’t realize is that the reason is subconscious.

So how can you change. 7 Steps to change

  1. Consciously decide what you want- the whole thing at issue here is that your conscious and subconscious desires are not the same. But many of us have not even defined what we really want. So your first step is to define what you want and what you do not want.
  2. Make a vision board – Although building a vision board on it’s own is useless. It will do something very important which is to allow you to become alert to new possibilities around you. If you clearly identify what you want and you get it. Does it really matter if you get it the way you planned or if you get it. By creating a vision board you open your mind up to new possibilities. You begin to see the new possibilities all around you.
  3. Make a plan of action- No matter how much you wish or hope for unless you take action. I mean consistent action you will not accomplish your goals. Your vision board becomes a dream board and your conscious wants become wishes.
  4. Find the pain and pleasure- You need to know what the consequences to what you want mean to you. Are you willing to pay the price necessary for your goals?
  5. Find your blockages- As hard as it is you should take steps to anticipate problems and how you will overcome those problems. This could be as easy as telling yourself that you will continue no matter what come your way. That whether you like it or not you will do what needs to be done in order to reach your goals. I will give you a perfect example. I just finished creating my very first internet video marketing campaign. The day I was done my brain went into a self sabotaging mode. I started to doubt all the work that has taken me the last three month to do. It would e easy for me to not market it. The video is to long, the page is not enticing enough, I look ridiculous- these where all thoughts running trough my head. Granted the system needs work but guess what it is never going to be perfect. So instead of deluding myself into thinking that this was all conscious decisions I went back and started trying what unconscious beliefs are trying to stop me,
  6. Find the beliefs that you need to support you- So instead of just laying down and taking what the subconscious is doing I decided to fight. But you need to understand that a fight between you subconscious and conscious mind as we try to define them. Is an awful unfair fight your subconscious mind is like Anderson Silva while your concision mind is like Erkel. Your conscious will always lose. The only way to have your conscious mind win is to have awareness. When you are aware you can learn to reprogram your subconscious mind and bring it in alignment with your goals. One way to do that is by
  7. Implementing a plan of passive and active programing- I personally use my subliminal tapes along with my workouts.

6 Steps to Achieving Your Goals I learned from Curiosity: I Caveman

6 Steps to Achieving Your Goals I learned from Curiosity: I CavemanI was watching this show on the discovery network called Curiosity. Morgan Spurlock the guy that did the documentary film Super Size Me takes on the challenge of hosting I Caveman. Ten people go out into the wilderness for 10 days with the tools that are only available to our pre-historic ancestors. Those we call caveman.

This better than any reality show demonstrates in a short amount of time how goals are set, achieved and abandoned. It shows the group dynamic and how cooperative learning can help everyone reach their goals. It gives you a quick microcosm of life. So these are the lessons I learned;

  1. It’s not enough just to have a goal- even tough it is very important to have a destination in mind when setting goals. The destinations are just part of your goals. Without  destinations you will lose hope and quit. In the case of I Caveman, the group had a goal, to have a community of ten people live as the cavemen did for 10 days. They knew that at the end of ten days they would be able to go back to their lives.
  2. Purpose- Their purpose was to experience and experiment what it would be like to live as cavemen. Basically out of curiosity. Maybe not an extremely important purpose.
  3. Commitment-There commitment was partly a strong will plus peer pressure from the group as well as the eventual viewers of the show. Also very different than needing to survive.  Sometimes it migh not be a matter of not being able to do it it is just giving up to early.
  4. The next challenge in goal setting is to have a plan of action. Their plan of action was to use the tools around them in order to survive like the caveman. Their goal was simple (not easy), shelter, heat, water and food. There plan of action was to first find shelter (provided for them) start a fire for heat, gather potable water, and get some food. Each one of those goals was broken down into smaller action plans. Each one of them had a reward at the end. Accomplishment and pseudo-survival. Their hardest goal and where they were tested the most was in gathering food. Their long term survival for the experiment depended on it. But there big break continued to alluded them. This is where the two people could not take it any more and gave up.
  5. The next thing in setting goals is having a support team, weather that is a coach or a group of people that is going for the same goal that can help you.
  6. The next thing is small wins, you need to set your self for success with small wins in between the huge wins. Without those small goals and wins you might not have enough stamina to reach your big goals. I know, I have run into it over an over again. Imagine traveling 10 mile a day to get food and getting nothing for your hunt while you are starving, cold, and tired. Will you keep going? Will you quit right before the big catch. Right before the tipping point. The one thing that I noticed was that after several days even with having a goal, knowing when the time was going to be over if there was no reason and there is no reward or reward in sight we give up. There has been times where I have felt the same as these people. They even changed tactics and still did not get the food they where looking for. So people started dropping. They needed a big win. Where is the big game in your life what is it that you have gone for over and over and have not gotten you need to have a coach to be able to help you along the hard times sometimes it might look bleak but if you don’t give up it can happen.

These are the principles you need to follow in order to reach any goal and especially if you want to accomplish any big goal. Implement them in your goal setting and I can guarantee that you will reach your dreams. What else do you believe people should have in order to reach their goals?
