“In mastery, there is a sense of effortlessness and joyousness. It stems from your ability and willingness to understand and work with the forces around you.” Art Kleiner (The Fifth Discipline Fieldbook)
Success is a HABIT! You gain personal mastery by being passionate about your vision, while maintaining a clear and realistic picture of the current situation. You can make personal mastery a HABIT. All habits are formed through “Intention”, “Commitment” and “Repetition”.
Decide on a Goal/Vision. This is your INTENTION.
Get PASSIONATE (Your unconscious only gets as involved and excited as YOU are!)
Practice “Re-framing” every negative (problem) into a positive (opportunity).
Consistently REPEAT the thoughts and behaviors that match your goal until they are second nature (habitual).
When confronted with a challenging situation, pause and take a deep breath to release tension and re-focus. Assess the situation while keeping your vision in mind. In this moment, NOW, you have your power to make appropriate choices and recognize opportunities based on your goals for the future. Do this consistently and in 4-6 weeks you’ll create the habit of success.
You are the architect of your life and move in the direction of your most dominant thought. So, what do you think about most of the day? Are you focused on what you WANT – called positive expectation, or are you focused on possible outcomes that you DON’T WANT – called worrying? If you focus on “positive goals”, “possibilities” and “opportunities”, that’s what you attract. If you focus on “the tanking economy”, “not enough business/money”, “problems”, you literally create more of the same. They both take the same amount of time and energy, and both recruit your powerful unconscious processes equally. You choose by what you think.
If you’ve formed the habit of “Lack” or “Limiting” thinking, notice the results and know that your mind is working perfectly! If you want different results, simply change the direction of your thoughts - your antennae. Just change the station.
INCOMING NEGATIVITY - AVOID IT or TURN IT OFF
If you can’t change it, learn from it and move on!
INCOMING POSITIVITY - LOOK FOR IT & EXPECT IT
Set your mental radar to search for positive opportunities, people & environments
If you aren’t passionate about your goals, get NEW GOALS. If your job/career doesn’t excite you, find something DIFFERENT. You will be GREAT at what you LOVE to do, I guarantee it! And remember:
“Life is filled with UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES!”
