Ok friends here is the real deal. If you want massive change in your life, there are three critical steps you must diligently pursue. Here they are:
1. Raise your standards. You can set a million and one detailed goals for yourself but if you don’t have the belief in yourself that you can achieve them – you won’t. Raise your standards from the little vision to the BIG vision. Dream bigger and see yourself winning. Start acting and thinking like the person you want to become RIGHT NOW! Repeat daily mantras that feed and affirm your positive beliefs. When old patterns of negative thinking pop up – kick that stinkin’ thinkin’ in the rear end and move on. These actions alone will begin to retrain your brain so that you only focus on thoughts that contribute and not take away from your life.
2. Set clear, visible, measurable goals. You have positioned yourself for a win once you’ve begun operating from a higher set of standards. Now is the time to set your goal! I recommend starting off by setting a clear but simple goal. You can always come back and make tweaks to it as you are making progress towards attainment! The key is to make the goal clear. Clarity of goal means that you can visualize yourself achieving it; can speak clearly to others about it; can measure the achievements towards your goal and duplicate the results.
3. Be willing to do what others will not do. This means you have to be willing to run when you’re tired; stretch when you’re aching and push forward when you’re not sure there is anything left inside of you. I’m not just speaking on a physiological level either: we’re talking spiritually, mentally, and emotionally as well. Whether you feel resistance towards your work out or the job you’re in- take steps to improve your deficiency. If you want better than what you have- you have to do what it takes to get it.
Doing what others are not willing to do means that you have to push harder most of the time. You have to go all the way to your edge - dip your toe over that edge and see how much further you could go. Only you can test the limits to see what you’re made of- so be bold and test it! The realization of your full potential will begin to show itself as you continuously move past your resistance and the fear of the unknown. Every time, every day without hesitation. Yoda said it best when he said “Try, there is no try. Do or do not.” Do or do not my friends. There is no room for excuses.
So much love for you all! Veronica
