Are you Comfortable in Prison?

Are you Comfortable in Prison?Wow. I have said it before and I will say it again. If you want to know how to apply all the words of the success gurus just read and apply the things in the greatest salesman in the world. How appropriate for my recent articles. I have been writing about setting goals and this month scroll is talking exactly about goals. The current scroll that I started reading is number VIII- Today I will Multiply my Value a hundredfold.

 

 

Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.

And how will I accomplish this? First I will set goals for the day, the week, the month, the year, and my life. Just as the rain must fall before the wheat will crack its shield and sprout, so must I have objectives before my life will crystallize. In setting my goals I will consider my best performance of the past and multiply it a hundredfold.- Og Mandino

Many people let their life just beat them down. Maybe we can look at setting goals from a different perspective. Many people just settle into mediocrity because their subconscious mind is directing them away from the pain of previous attempts and failures. They then use their conscious mind to rationalize why they end up in their own prison. There are no excuses for most of the people that live in the United Sates. Our government and lifestyle, as crazy as it is still allows one of the most important God given abilities which is- free will.

The problem is that we chose to trap ourselves in our minds. So what do we do? We need to escape as if we were escaping from prison. I have never been in prison but I would gather that if it was easy to escape that more people would do it. So it is not an easy endeavor. It requires planing, timing, and guts. It requires a total desire to escape the conditions that are oppressing you. I mean you have 24-7 prison guards monitoring every movement your conscious mind does.

Without desire you will never have the guts to escape. Unfortunately some people are more than comfortable in jail, some actually commit crimes so that they can have a warm place to stay and 3 square meals. So if your life is to much for you to take you have likely incarcerated yourself so that you can at least get three square meals and a roof over your heard. You might have meet some people just like this, and no matter what you say to these people they just will not come out until they believe that they can. Life is entirely to short to spent it in a prison of my own doing. A prison of my misconceptions, fears, and shortcomings.

What were you doing 5 years ago? Is it the same thing that you are doing today? Will it be the same thing that you will be doing 5 years from now? Are you happy doing it? Do you know that would be 10 years of your life (Possibly 10% of your life)? Can you do what you do and still enjoy life to the fullest?

In order to escape prison you should be dreaming of what is on the outside. What is out there? What can you accomplish if you get out? What will you do when you get out that you can not do now? What adventures can you accomplish that you can’t while in jail? Wow! I am taking this metaphor to it’s breaking point.

Today I would like for you to dream again. To dream about what is possible and forget what impossible means. I would like you to write all the things that you have wanted to do in your life. A bucket list perhaps. Have you ever heard of the story of Houdini’s failed escape?

As usually told, the story goes that Houdini, while visiting England, would regularly escape from jails as a publicity stunt. He toured many major towns and cities, and managed to escape from the town or city jail in every case. There was one exception: a police jail cell in Preston, Lancashire. Houdini tried and failed to escape. Why did he fail? Because the cell had never actually been locked in the first place! Hence he was trying to ‘unlock’ a lock which wasn’t locked!”

Although most likely not true it is a cute story to represent what most of us do on a daily basis. We lock ourselves in our preconceived ideas about the outside world and never let ourselves out. Get out!!

How you can Reach Happiness in the Next 10 Minutes without drugs. What are Goals? Be careful, reading this whole article could change the way that you view your life and make you happier. I know, I know this is a huge claim. The good thing is that it i not about me changing you it is about you changing you. I am sure that someone like you already knows that people that write their goals down are much more likely to reach them than those that don’t. My question is “ Is life all about reaching your goals?” ,“Will reaching your goals make you happy? Is there a way to reach your goals and reach happiness and success at the same time? My answer to the last question is obviously a resounding -yes! It requires you to change your thinking, have a plan and some ground rules. Let me explain. I’ve worked with dozens of people on goals. That is one of the fundamentals of network marketing. Writing your goals, and figuring your reasons why.

Imagine if you are working two hours with someone on really digging and finding what their goals are, writing them down, creating an action plan, really digging to find a why and 3 month later there is really no change. It is frustrating. I have done it myself. It is what prompted me to write this article. I want to find a better way. I think I have. It has been working for me. So I will give it to you free of charge.

So what are the beliefs that will help you reach happiness in the next Ten Minutes.

  1. It is a life process- Goals and goal setting is a life process not an event. It should be a way for you to reflect on your purpose and your why. It is a way to measure , monitor and adjust what you want from your dash. On your tomb stone there usually will be a birth date and a death date. In between the two there is a dash. You have no control of your birth and really no control of your death. What will you do with that dash? That is what regular reflections on your journey will help you focus on.
  2. Focus on the fun of life as much as possible. Life is a series of ups, plateaus, and downs. It’s more like a stock chart than a straight line. Is your life stock going up, is it staying the same or going down? If you can just accept that fact then you can immunize yourself (another article on this concept- check out the link on the authors box) and emphasize the positive to the maximum, minimize the negative to almost non existence and work through the flat points in your life. You can live life happy.
  3. Make life a whole body experience- When the positive things happen in your life take them in and enjoy every single moment. Enjoy the sound, the taste, the colors, the feeling. Make the positive moments memorable, make them last. Make the negatives role of your back. Like if you were coated with Teflon. I will expand on how to use this to your advantage on my next article. You need to use this for your motivation.
  4. Life is an adventure- life on this earth is short. I know that some will argue with me on this point. But I believe that those that want a relationship with the one true God will experience eternal life, those that don’t will cease to exist. It is not a chosen few, it is based on your acceptance of God’s plan and your relationship with him. Only you and God will know that. I am not making any judgments as I am not qualified to do so. Some people are so unhappy here that the thought of eternity is boring. I believe we will have a chance to explore, seek, and learn.
  5. There are no failures- the only people who fail are those that just quit or don’t even try. Someone commented on a post I placed in facebook with this quote. -As Peter LaFleur would say, “I found that if you have a goal, you might not reach it. But if you don’t have one, then you are never disappointed.”  As clever as the statement is, it is false. The world is full of people that don’t have goals and are very disappointed. Setting goals has nothing to do with disappointment. It is the meaning you place behind not accomplishing the goal that brings the disappointment. The people that beat themselves up for not accomplishing their goals have a loser mentality. That mentality will leave many scars that will prevent future success.
  6. It is all about balance- many people that are seemingly successful by worldly standards are very unhappy. Because so many people struggle financially people equate the amazing of wealth as the ultimate success. Even tough we say money is not everything subconsciously that is the first thing we are drawn to when measuring success. In our heads if we could just have the toys, financial success, adventures then our life would be successful. When messuring other peoples success we do the same. What car do they drive? What vacations do they take? What house do they live in?
  7. Cease the moments- Don’t leave for tomorrow what you can do today. I am not saying that you should be irresponsible but that you should always be measuring everything that you do with your ultimate plan.

So what are goals? Are goals just meaningless accomplishments or the way to truly be happy? Now that you have read the whole article I want to help you experience your life to the fullest. After all that is my mission. So on my next article I will go over how to design goals that will truly guide and motivate change. What are your thoughts?
