Do you believe that you deserve a better life? Our success begins with believing we deserve the goal that we choose. Do you have a picture in your mind of what it is you’d like to do, to have, to become? So often individuals forget to engage the process of visualizing the very thing that they want to do or become. Visualization isn’t enough however, the mind is a powerful engine and it is important to feed it the fuel that moves your goals from visualization to reality. Have you asked the questions? “How do I achieve this? “What does it take?” “What does that life look like?” “What is required to accomplish that kind of result?” With a body of knowledge you can begin to engage first steps in experiencing your future today. Maybe you have the desire to own a new car, to drive a certain brand. Perhaps you’ve never even truly ridden in that car. The first step may be to go to the dealership and to find out about the car, what’s unique about it, what it costs to purchase, or lease. Pick up the book on the car and hang it in your vision area. That may help you to identify what is worth doing knowing your dream car is the prize.
Do you believe that you are capable of learning? So often the skills that are required to do a job well are easy to learn, but hard to begin! How many times have you wanted a “made” bed kind of home, but perhaps failed to make the bed? Our abilities are rarely the cause of our stagnant life, our inability to ACTUATE what we know to do may be another story! Motivation has to do with desire and deserve levels too, did you know that? Before we are motivated to DO something we have to believe that we deserve that thing and have identified a desire as to why that thing would be desirable to us. Maybe you’re not excited about “more money” but you’re very excited about traveling Europe. That’s your motivation’s desire. Once captured, you then have your why for doing the mundane and the daily actions that will reach your goal!
