Have you ever stopped to think about how the situations and circumstance in your life have come about? If so and if you are honest enough you will in time see that what you are is merely a reflection of your previous thoughts, words, and deeds.
In this respect the bible passage Galatians 6:7 KJV holds relevance:
‘Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.’
Ok, in modern day terms that may translate to something along the lines of, you get out what you put in, your current actions have later reactions, you get what you give. Say what you will, if your honest you know it is near enough the mark not to be ignored.
So, the question to be asked now is how can change my current thoughts, actions and deeds so that in the future I get more of the things in life that I do want?
One way to immediately change your view on your current situation and therefore to change it in the future is to recognise and eliminate the inner lies that people so often accept as part of their being.
By adopting a few of the approaches below you can make significant and lasting positive changes to your life. Don’t take my word for it or the words of any of the highly successful people of the past and present but discover the truth through your own life. Try some of these…
Make A Decision and Take Action
Most people will resolutely decide or make a declaration and believe that because they have made the decision the problem has been fixed. Not true. A decision has never really been made until it has been acted upon. So, decide and act upon it! Ideas are the source of all, but their real value only materialises when they are acted upon, when the thought becomes deed.
Write Down Your Goals
If not, then it can be easy to let your focus drift or even to forget and lose sight of what you are looking to attain. There are many reasons why writing down your goals is important. Doing so helps you to clarify what you want to achieve, and gives you a roadmap to follow.
Additionally, research has shown that people who write down their goals are more likely to achieve them. This is likely because the act of writing requires you to think carefully about what you want to achieve and makes you more accountable to yourself.
So, if you want to increase your chances of success, take the time to write down your goals. Putting them in writing is the first step in taking them out of the realm of energy and manifesting them into real life.
Have Realistic Expectations
Expectation is what brings the goal nearer to you, action is what takes you nearer to the goal. You need to successfully address both ends of this equation. Expectation is linked to what goals you set. I would find it difficult to expect to earn a million dollars passive income in a month, however 1000 dollars a month passive income in a years’ time would be a far more reasonable and attainable goal. Therefore, with the correct plan and with discipline I could expect to achieve this goal and not just have it as some imaginary elusive goal.
Don’t ignore your feelings.
If you do something because you think that it will take you closer to your goals, but it makes you feel negative and fearful, then choose another way. I don’t mean walk away from challenges but if something feels bad about the method you are using to attain a goal then try a different method that feels better and makes you happier. Keep reaching out for the next better feeling. Doing this will always keep you moving in a positive direction.
Match up your thoughts, words, and deeds.
Develop a picture in your mind of what you want. make it clear and vivid. Speak positively about yourself, make positive affirmations to yourself, and don’t let your actions contradict your vision. If you have a vision of yourself as being slim and healthy choose an appropriate action to match that vision: eating healthily, exercising and so on. The real power in your mind is when all these three aspects of yourself are aligned, this is where your real power lies!
Now make a note of the suggestions from above that you feel would be beneficial for you to apply. Now don’t just look at the list, challenge yourself to take positive action on them today! Making these thought processes a natural part of your everyday life is the key.
You can do that starting now!
