How Can I Break Old Patterns?

Part 8 of 11 from Mission Success

(continued from last week…)

Positive Possibilities

Too frequently, we see individuals whose attitude is “How can I ever stop what I’m doing or do something different than I’m now doing?” “How can I break these old patterns, how can I take on a new way?” It is more of a hopelessness mentality verses “I have potential, I can do something, I can learn new things, I can begin to move”.

Success is about managing your brain effectively and choosing where you want you to go. When you take a close look at what’s going on around you, you have to become very selfish about the ideas and attitudes and self-talk you allow to live in your brain.

You don’t allow just everything to be in there. If things are not there that are supporting, encouraging, moving you forward, then you delete them, you change, you add in a new attitude and action, because those older ones will block you from achieving the life you desire. Read more »

Can You Change Your Attitude?

Drivers for You

One of the things we have to think about is, what are some of those things that drive us, what are some of those processes that move us forward? You have these old patterns you developed and they probably served you well up to this moment in your life but are they going to also serve you well into the future?

If you drove your car today like you did when you first started driving, driving would be a chore for you. My guess is you can probably get in, start the car, and automatically be able to do what you need to do, look all around you, make great decisions, and go safely where you need to.

The way you drive next week can even be improved more because you pay better attention, you learn things about driving, you know better signals etc. It’s a choice. You begin to use your mental patterns to take you where you want to go. Your attitude that you are carrying today is about what you built in the past. Read more »

Can You Perceive What Is Going On Around You?

(continued from last week…)

Responsibility Reality

Ayn Rand said, “The ladder of success is best climbed by stepping on the rungs of opportunity. Get going!”

George Bernard Shaw said, “Life isn’t about finding yourself, life it is about creating yourself.”

You can decide what you are going to think. You can decide what your goals will be. You can pick your priorities today. By directing and managing your thinking patterns, your focus, your goals, you can bring about predictable changes in your world and in your behavior and those predictable changes can move you ever closer to where you want to be.

As you increase your understanding of how to move yourself, you are truly taking some of those rocks out of your pack. You are lightening the load and giving yourself wings on your shoes to help you move yourself forward to have a better, healthier, happier more effective life. It’s about choices. Read more »

How Can You Move Yourself Into A Better Tomorrow?

Part 5 of 11 from Mission Success

(continued from last week…)

Direct Your Focus

The way you look at your situation, the way you think about what is happening around you, can move you or stop you. It is not the stuff that makes a difference, it’s what’s going on inside of you pertaining to those externals that can have an effect on you.

We need to think about “How I can move me?” “How I can move myself into a better tomorrow?” Think about those three parts of your system, your talents, what you were born with, what’s going on inside of you, where you are today, the information you’ve acquired and what you’ve put in to your computer-like brain and the way that can move you or inhibit you.

How Can You Take Advantage Of Your Full Potential?

Lighten the Pack You Carry

Henry David Thoreau said, “Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.”

Dr. Norman Vincent Peale said, “Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it for that often determines our success or failure.”

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said, “The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do well, and doing well wherever you can do and are doing.”

Have you ever tried to run while you are carrying a really heavy pack or you are carrying a lot of weight? You can do it, but it’s tough. You can even do it sometimes for extended periods of time but it wears you out faster. Read more »

How Can You Take Charge Of Your Own Life?

Part 3 of 11 from Mission Success

(continued from last week…)

Decisiveness Matters

Your decisions, your actions and your reactions set up whatever your future will be. Within the frame work of your own possibilities and potentials you are guiding, directing your destiny, your life by intent or by default. Are you living on purpose or are you living on accident? That is a choice. Our goal here is to assist you in having a simple yet comprehensive process for making your life worth more the way you want it to be.

As you go along, it’s going to help if you think about this as sort of a manual for the brain or another aspect of running your brain more the way you want to so you can achieve those things you desire in life.

Let’s put it in another way. If you just let your life take its course, let the inevitable, whatever it is, happen, you take that chance, your end result may or may not wind up where you want it to be. The Cheshire cat asked Alice in the Alice in Wonderland story, “Where are you trying to get to?” She said, “I don’t know”, the cat said, “Well take any road you want and you’ll get there.” Read more »

Your Untapped Potential

Samuel Johnson in 1763 said, “Nothing will ever be attempted if all possible objections must first be overcome.”

Dr. William James said, “It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task, which more than anything else will affect its successful outcome.”

Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy said, “Life is not a matter of milestones but of moments. Make yours great ones!”

Making great moments every day is what we are all about. Mission Success really is about taking charge of what you can take charge of. Read more »

Do You Feel Insignificant?

Part 1 of 11 from Mission Success

Famous television journalist Belva Davis said, “Don’t be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so.”

Dr. Maxwell Maltz, the author of Psycho-Cybernetics said, “People who say that life is not worthwhile are really saying, they themselves have no personal goals which are worthwhile. Get yourself a goal worth working for, better still get yourself a project. Always have something ahead of you to look forward to, something to work for, something to hope for. I believe that the primary purpose of a living creature is to become more of what we are capable of being, to fulfil its potential.”
