Do you feel as if life is passing you by? Your life is the sum total of your thoughts up to today. Negative thoughts will quickly find negative situations to relate to, when you think poor it, your subconscious, can quickly find a situation to relate to. Your past life need not be your future life, if you take action now to change it.
The majority of people with no apparent life purpose or plan wonder why it is that the successful are so successfull, yet they just drift through their lives in an ever fast moving world from day to day without any real purpose or plan..
You manufacture your own luck by applying positive thoughts to the way you want your life to develop. To get a better life, think better things and they will come about.
Do you ever feel as if you have no real life purpose or life plan?
Do you feel as if life is passing you by?
Could it be your life plan is to have money left over at the end of the month instead of month left over at the end of your money?
I do not advocate that people live in the past to discover what sort of life purpose you should have, but just for this exercise I am going to suggest that you are driving your car and I am giving you permission to look in your rear view mirror to see what is behind you, that is not the same as looking back is it?
In your childhood you were told how to behave by well meaning parents and guardians but how they told you to behave affects your life as it is today. Don't do that is frequently said to children without thought of how it will impact on their future lives!; 'Chidren should be seen and not heard'; 'You cannot do that'; 'Don't try and get above your station'. It is these words that have set up your life today for your life is the sum total of your thoughts up to today.
You have been told that setting goals is the key to a better life full of choices, but perhaps you have not been told how to set them, so many people who try to set goals do so in a language familiar with their lives up until now. That is they say 'I do not want ......'.
Unfortunately the subconcious mind knows no better, when we talk to ourselves or hear someone say something to us or read words, it goes into our memory to find a situation that is either like or closely matched to the words it is receiving. Negative words will quickly find negative situations to relate to and therefore act on, so when you say poor, your subconscious can quickly find a situation to relate to the word poor in your experiece of life.
How can you get around this?
Fortunately it is quite easy to do. Setting goals in the present tense, with purpose, even if you are thinking in the future will create life choices. For example if your are earning $4000 per month and you want $8,000 per month your goals setting would be phrased, I am earning $8,000 per month", that means that your goal is measurable. It matters not where the money is coming from if you write this down and read it out at every opportunity throughout your day at least four times soon you will earn $8,000 per month. It will never happen unless YOU act on it, 'If it is to be it is up to me'.
This moment is your point of power,the past is over, the future is yet to come, it is only at this precise moment that you can give your future some purpose with a plan. Your past life need not be your future life, if you take action now to change it.
Look at people who earn what you want to earn, copy their behaviour and work ethic, speak positive language and soon they will be your peer group and you will earn as they earn. One thing you will find is that they are a lot less negative than the social circle you mix with who earn $4,000 per month and less.
Your motto should be, "Right now I choose to take the action necessary to change my life plan", and not just say it DO IT!
