Free Your Mind For Success

Over the years  I have gotten  to know myself pretty well. Over the preceding years, procrastination had kept me from obtaining a bundle of my goals, dreams and desires. There were many days that the alarm went off and I either "snoozed it to death" or by no means made it to the gym. I made excuses like, "I'll just go tomorrow and work out specially hard" or "I will make up for it over the weekend".You see, I was only cheating in my opinion. You know why? Because tomorrow is the day you were supposed to do the things you promised yourself your were going to do the day before. In other words tomorrow never comes.

Being that all of my work is done from the comfort of my own home, it's real easy to slack off sometimes. But I learned over the years that I was not going to take excuses from myself. I made a self-pact long ago, never to put off what can be done right now. I have always belonged to a gym for as long as I can remember.Now picture yourself as  the swimming instructor standing beside her. 

However, instead of encouraging her, you start telling her about all the horror stories about how people have drowned in the pool, and that she has to be very careful and cautious. What do you think will happen to the child? Again, you are right! She starts getting wary of water itself and starts doubting whether swimming is a good idea after all. Correct? In fact, most people who come to the pool to learn swimming are afraid of drowning, because of the fearful ideas that they have formed in their mind listening to other peoples negative opinions.

This is an easy-to-picture <a href= ""> Hypnosis Live </a>  analogy, which I learnt from Tony Robbins. Imagine an IDEA to be like a tabletop. By itself, it is of not much use. If you want to convert the tabletop to a table, then you must put legs underneath it. Right? Similarly, if you want to convert an IDEA into a BELIEF, then you must put REFERENCES (the legs) to support the idea. The stronger the references (legs), stronger is the belief (table). The more the number of references, more stronger the belief.In the above case, the IDEA was 'I want to learn swimming' and the BELIEF was ' I CAN do it!'. The references used to convert that idea into a belief were 'your encouraging words as the swimming instructor'.So, from here on, if you are not sure about taking a particular action, go find yourself some references to increase your belief in the first place. Go put some legs under the tabletop. Once the belief is in place, TAKE ACTION! And results will follow suit.

Determining whether a particular skill you possess is natural or acquired is an important step to doing more of what you do best. Because many of of our natural skills bring a greater feeling of joy, these skills are worth discovering and developing. A "skill" is a behavior or ability you've developed through training or experience. And, while all personal skills are behaviors, not all behaviors are skills. For example, telling a joke is a skill; laughing at a joke is a behavior.
