Get clearness on what you want
Without a clear vision and a big “why” to prevent looping
GET CLEAR ON YOUR PURPOSE & TAKE DAILY ACTIONS
Without a vision, our brain has no clue what to do
Before we start with this section, I would like to invite you to look back and ask yourself what your biggest achievement has been so far. The second question is how did you inspire yourself to choose and strive for a goal? Did you have pictures in your mind? Did you feel the joy and gratitude in yourself? Did you feel a big "why" you wanted to achieve it? Did you identify a feeling or habit that you think can connect to an old memory? I'm sure you had this experience and that vision gave you the ultimate power and fuel for your success. It does not matter how big the dream or the goal is that you want, the basis to achieve it is always the same. You must have a vision and a big "why" that pulls you towards that achievement. That is the secret. Define your “why” and keep this in your vision and in your practice on a daily basis. Without a clearly defined vision and path, your brain starts to work on its own, creating feelings and making decisions based on your past experiences. It can continue to build upon false or old beliefs. Be the master of your brain, your thoughts, your behaviors, and your habits. It can give you the path of truth and purpose, and the brain can work in your favor to ensure that you have enough fuel to change your path. Think about when you book a vacation: you imagine yourself in the journey, the destination, the adventure, the beach, and you use pictures to strengthen it. The same thing is valid for setting goals.
Every GPS needs a destination in order to navigate
Your guidance system is like a GPS – you need a destination before you get the directions. So having a vision and end goal is key. But the vision alone, on paper, is just not enough. The vision has to go into your DNA, you must become one with it in order to get your subconscious to support you. As mentioned before, part of the vision is the "why" you want to go there. This part of the game is critical to success because if you don't have a bulletproof “why”, there’s a high possibility that you will give up when things get tough. Take the time needed to really go into your inner-being and ask yourself why you want it. Write down your mission statement. Write how it will feel, state that you ARE your vision. Write down your promises on actions you will take to achieve your goals, your why, your purpose! Make sure you see that statement everywhere, and all time. One great tool to make your vision visible and vivid is a vision board; make one, and hang it where you can see it all the time. The more you see it, the more your brain will start looking for ways to confirm it as reality. Your brain will recognize the new vision to be a new comfort zone, and it will attract all things to keep you on that path.
Think big and start from the end
Many successful people in life start with a big dream, and they dream about it every day. We all dream somehow, right? When we were young, we may have been taught that day dreaming was meaningless, or not achievable, or had no purpose. We may have grown to think that day dreaming can just be wandering thoughts, and that it would not get us anywhere. We might have stopped using our imagination, which is the greatest power we have. We are turning this power back on! Light switch on! Visionary people sometimes drop out of school so they can pursue their dreams; the ones who succeed always keep an end-goal in mind. This is where success and making dreams a reality come in. This is something like reverse engineering in which every day, they took one action that was somehow related to the vision. This is the key, have your dream in mind and take action every day towards it. It will reform your neurological pathways and, with time, it will guide you to do all tasks and decisions with ease and enthusiasm. Do not listen to others, do not let anyone else’s fears and doubts steer you away from your dreams. If you read about why your dream is not going to get you too far, you are still working with beliefs that were built with a younger mind, with no knowledge, and this can work in a way to disempower you. Make this your new mantra "Everything starts as a thought!"
Set clear goals and break down the action plan into baby steps
Setting goals is something we hear in each course or training we take, so what is new about goals then? How does the brain react when we set goals? We need goals and we actually set goals all the time, not only in business but also in our personal life. So why are certain goals easily achieved, and others are not? Let’s think about specific examples. Say we set a goal for the upcoming weekend to go hiking and, of course, we go and do that. Another goal can be building up a business. We’ve had this goal for years, but nothing is moving. The fear and uncertainty starts eating up all of our energy. You might be thinking that these are not comparable goals. These are different types of goals. Yes, you are right. One is basically tactical and very easy to execute, and the other one is more high level and long term. So it should be clear why we can reach one goal very easily and why the other is so damn hard. Here is the reason. If a goal is big and exciting, your brain can get overwhelmed and you might get stuck with fear and worry. To avoid stress response, make your goals digestible, break them down into daily baby steps, and check each one off once they are achieved. Big goals should be broken down into small steps. Each small step is achievable. Several small checked off steps is now a path and pattern toward the goal. Take a step forward toward your goal!
Identifying your values is crucial to success
In order to lay down a successful path, you have to know what is important to you, and I mean what is really important in the big picture, not just what is important to you now. This is not an easy task because your ego and your intuition do not have the same opinion. Therefore it is really important to do this in quiet state of mind in order to access your true inner guidance system. It is important to be aware of two types of values. The toward-to values are the ones that attract to you. The away-from values are the ones that you try to avoid at any cost. In order to access your full energy potential, you have to know your values; they can change in time but it’s important to know them now. These can be your brain’s protagonists and antagonists. These need to be seen as strengths and weaknesses. It is crucial to success to identify them.
Tools and practice for clarity
To identify what we really want, we need to find out what's important to us. What has the most value to us, and what does not? On paper, begin to list all the values which are important to you such as success, health, wealth, love, family, or whatever is valuable to you. List them all. Aim for a minimum of 10 - 15. Then select the 5 most important ones. Rank them all and identify the top 5. Leave this list in sight for at least one week and then review it again. Is it still accurate? If so, carry on. Do the same with move-away values like anger, emotions, feeling overwhelmed, being easily frustrated, jealousy, self-pity, and so on. Be honest with yourself. After this exercise, you will know which values please you the most and which create a heavy, negative response. Now take your time and think about what you would like to do in your life and what your dream is. Don't judge the outcome; just write it down and let your internal feelings guide you. Usually we write something down and then we cancel it because we think it's unrealistic. Well, is it really unrealistic or do we have a core belief holding us back? Do not think too hard, let this all flow. As soon than you have written down your dream, start to map it to your values. Do they match? Yes? Congratulations! You are on track with what is important to you. If not, think about it more in-depth, write your story down and map it again. If it does not match you probably have some core beliefs holding you back. Let's identify these and rewrite your story.
