Do you get so close to your goal and then poof, you fall short? Do you have a roller coaster type of business? If so you are not alone, self-sabotage is rampant. One of the key over-looked areas is how you run your brain. Yes, you read that correctly, how you run your brain.
Usually, when we fall short, fear, doubt, or some other negative thought has become our dominant thought. Here is an excerpt from Conversations with God by Neale Walsch that will put it in perspective for you.
Harnessing your thoughts, exercising control over them, is not as difficult as it might seem. (Neither for that matter is climbing Mt. Everest.) It is all a matter of discipline. It is a question of intent. The first step is learning to monitor your thoughts; to think about what you are thinking about. When you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts-thoughts that negate your highest idea about a thing—think again! I want you to do this literally. If you think that you are in a doldrum, in a pickle, and no good can come out of this, think again. If you think the world is a bad place, filled with negative events, think again. If you think your life is falling a part and looks like you will never get it back together again, think again. You can train yourself to do this. (Look how well you’ve trained yourself not to do it!)
Your head-space is vitally important to your success. 1% of the population knows how to run their brains effectively. It is interesting to note that 1% of the population has controlled 99% of all of the wealth of the world since the beginning of time. How’s that for a coincidence?
Here are some actions steps that you can deploy that will help you create better thoughts:
- Start doing affirmations. It is important to feed your mind positive thoughts. Affirmations are a sure way to do that. Affirmations are positive statements that you say OUT LOUD and PROUD. They should be in the “I am” format. For example: I am a great coach. I am a great husband. I attract positive things in my life. You should say your affirmations at least two times per day and anytime you have negative self-talk.
- Get a journal and start writing. Put pen to paper and just write for three pages each day. Write about your fears. Write about your successes. Write about anything that bubbles up. It will be your cheapest form of therapy that you never pay for.
Implement those two action steps and do them religiously for 45 days and see the shift that occurs.
This is what a client had to say about affirmations:
Today and Monday I was very frustrated at work with: – speed of change – access to people – doing things my way vs their way And… That has been making me: – paranoid – angry – frustrated – worried it is not going to go well But this time (unlike the last 8 years) I kept thinking of your advice: – they’re the boss – don’t push – don’t be antsy – affirmations ( every hour) – be positive – this is not a past job – control emotions.
Just talked to my boss and he is cool with how things are going. So doing “Paul’isms” has saved me from messing this whole thing up 11 different ways. Pretty much everything I would have done would have pissed these people off.
