Everything in life is only a potential until we interact with it. What becomes our reality is determined by the quality of attention that we pay to our experiences. Success or failure are only possibilities until our brain fixates more onto one than the other and makes that our reality.
If circumstances in your life are not of your choosing (consciously), then you’ve attracted them unconsciously. Your external experience is a reflection of your internal points of view.
So how can you be more deliberate in taking control of your mind and therefore your results? By switching your brain into success mode! Here’s how:
Firstly, accept your circumstance. Its only when we can be with our life exactly as it is that we have the choice to change its direction.
Secondly, if you’re in a less than optimal situation, realize that this is a phase and like all other phases it will change, and in the end you’ll be ok.
So you may as well look to the end and envisage yourself as the person who made it through. Imagine yourself in the future at that point in time when you’ve just accomplished your positive outcome. What will you see, hear and feel as you achieve this? Shift your body position to resemble that good feeling. Then, as your successful future self, you can look back on your current situation and notice how you got through and how you harnessed the opportunities that lead to your success.
In doing the above visualization and physiological shift you will notice how it changes your current perceptions. Then while you’re enjoying the afterglow of your internal shift, consider what your next most important step is that leads toward the future success that awaits you… Take that step and you’ll be on your way to achieving this.
In the end you’ll be ok and now you know how to get there. So give up the struggle, say yes to your current experience, tune into your inner wisdom and your brain will be switched into success mode.
Finally, take some time each day to count your blessings. Feel sincere gratitude for what you’ve got, as this is a powerful way of attracting more of the good stuff.
If you’d like to be guided through the above process in a more structured way and learn how to apply it in the various areas of your life, that’s covered in the Mind over Matter recording.
