We all seek to do, be, and have great possessions. Yet most of us just haven’t shaped the successful life we want, yet.
We criticize and point fingers on the outside problems that happen to us, which leads to making our life more difficult. But what we need to know and understand is that greatness is within all of us and it is to us to bring it out of ourselves.
Despite personal and economic situations, it is important to maintain our faith in the fact that we are much stronger than we think. We all have the capability to create the life we want. We just need to learn the HOW.
Is there an exact “formula”?
No, but there are common structures that effective people use and that anyone can practice. They are what can kick-start your achievement and attract what you want in life. High go-getters live by the following four tips:
1. Take FULL Responsibility for Your Life
One of the greatest myths in our culture today is that we are entitled to an exceptional life and that someone has to fill our life with happiness, but the truth is that the only person who is responsible for the quality of the life you live is YOU.
Everything you have is a result of your doing and not doing. Your position, relationships, health, behaviors…etc. I think many people know this fact, but they try to trick themselves by thinking that external factors are the source for their failure, unhappiness and disappointment.
You see successful people take full responsibility for their judgments and actions. They don’t waste their energy accusing and complaining. They face the pain and take risks in order to create the dream life.
It looks so simple, but here’s the trick: I find many people unhappy and unsatisfied. They are physically drained as if running in one circle and going nowhere.
Because they haven’t clearly decided what they truly want. They don’t sit and map out their dream goal instead they run around tackling unimportant tasks.
Basically, when you waste your energy on unimportant things, you grow uninspired and out of your authentic self. Hence, the main reason why you don’t get what you want is because you haven’t decided neither defined your desires and how success would look like for you?
Hence, as soon as you decide on your big dream, go after it as your subconscious mind will come up with great ideas and make things happen for you. You’ll start attracting everything around you into your life.
Science shows that the human brain responds to learning form past experiences. In fact, the mind is such a powerful instrument, it can deliver literally everything you want.
But you have to believe that what you want is possible.
As you commit to believing in yourself, examine what your complaints in your life about (ex. I am fat, tired, cannot get out of debt, won’t get a better job…etc) and tone it down. Definitely you can do something about them as they are not about someone else, they are about YOU.
4. Set your goals
Scientists know that our brain is a goal-seeker organ. Whatever goal you give to your subconscious mind it will work incredibly on delivering. Hence to engage the brain , you need to have your goal measurable otherwise it is simply a wish or a good idea only and cannot be fulfilled.
You can always start with one preliminary goal, which comes with a few actions to accomplish. You can go ahead with something which you are unhappy about right now, take the steps to change it yourself.
Remember that self-motivated people win, so push yourself for a change to accomplish your goals and get the life of your dreams.
