Are You Putting Rocks In Your Own Path?

Part 11 of 11 from Mission Success

(continued from last week…)

Challenge is Healthy

So while you are giving yourself a little bit of impetus to move, you also make sure to breathe and keep yourself in check. Educational research has well proven that a small amount of tension makes your brain work a little faster but you go just beyond this very small amount, it inhibits the ability of the brain to work. There are then too many neurons firing for it to optimize its links to all the various nerve endings that you are trying to learn and grow and access your memory from.

A little tension is a good thing, but too much slows you down. It inhibits your immune system, it inhibits your brain, it stops you from being able to work on your goals.

So relax. Relaxing does not mean that every five minutes you need to take a nap or that every day you have to make sure that you spend two and a half hours meditating (though it is well proven that meditation is very good for you.)

Do You Take Responsibility?

Part 10 of 11 from Mission Success

(continued from last week…)

Eliminate “Try”, Move Into “Can”

You need to see what you can do, not try to do but what you can do and will do! Don’t allow yourself to be blocked by other people’s inhibitors for them. Perhaps sometimes we have to allow our assumptions to be there and at the same time we have to think, “That assumption may or may not be true.” You have to look at it, you have to see the truth and then you also have to ask “What part of it inhibits me?”

Keep asking this question, “What are the barriers I throw up for myself?”

There is a way to make a move into your future and it all depends on you. Are you going to allow yourself to sit or are you going to give yourself a little bit of pressure to move? Every human does a little better when they have goals and objectives; a deadline is much more likely to be achieved if you set one. There are people who really resist setting a deadline because it puts feet to the fire. Read more »

Are You Inhibiting Your Own Success?

Part 9 of 11 from Mission Success

(continued from last week…)

Focus Your Attitude & Actions

Dr Albert Ellis, one of the leading researchers in the field of cognitive psychology said, “The best years of your life are the ones which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame what’s happened to you on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you are the creator of your own destiny.”

Sir Winston Churchill, as he was addressing parliament said, “Every job is a self-portrait of the person who did it. Autograph your work with excellence!”

You are free, you can do whatever you desire to do. You live in universal abundance; there is nothing that can inhibit you but you.

You live within the systems surrounding around you. You work within the roles and responsibilities of the job you have. You live up to those expectations of the people you are closest to in your world to make sure that things flow better and more evenly. And you can build ever better bridges into your future.

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?

Part 7 of 11 from Mission Success

(continued from last week…)

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?

Part 6 of 11 from Mission Success

(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?

Part 4 of 11 from Mission Success

(continued from last week…)

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 »
