Strengthen Your Mindset Part 2

Visualization, Affirmations and Inspired focused actions

3. Visualization and affirmations to strengthen your Mindset

Visualization: See with your mind’s eyes what you want to be, do and have, not only as an image, more like a movie. Find pictures and videos that inspire you, see yourself with what you want and feel the feelings it generates within you. 

You can also create a mind movie like I learn by reading/listening to Becoming Supernatural by Dr. Joe Dispenza. With images, video footages, music and phrases that inspire you. There are some inspiring mind movies on youtube, and I suppose the more personalized the better.

Affirmations:

Your internal dialogue is what defines what you become. What you think and feel on a continual basis is what you’ll become.

So repeat to yourself in the present tense a belief you want to have and feel what it feels like.

Whatever you want to accomplish, say to yourself that you can and give yourself permission to accomplish it.

Give yourself permission to accomplish the most extraordinary things that inspire YOU from within and know that you can. Set an action plan to back it up and trust.

The words you tell yourself are very powerful. If you repeat them with feelings and faith, you’ll start believing it. It doesn’t matter if it’s true or not, if you keep telling yourself the same things, your subconscious mind will believe it.

Make sure to intentionally choose what you repeat to yourself everyday. Make it even stronger with actions and feelings that are aligned to your affirmations.

Tip: Use a recorder app on your phone and read to yourself with feelings, your most inspiring affirmations. Add your favorite music in the background, may be an instrumental. Listen to this recording over and over again whenever you can.

For example listen to your affirmations when you go for a walk or to run in nature, or when you wait in the supermarket, when you take actions on your goals, when you cook, etc.

Feel the feelings of having it now: this is very powerful since our mind cannot differentiate what we imagine and what is happening in the outer world when we feel the feelings.

4. Taking inspired focused actions out of the comfort zone strengthen your mind

Your Action Plan: taking action starts with the planning. So take the time to plan your life, your dreams, your goals. Also take the time to plan your year, your month, your week and your day.

At the end of each day plan the next day in advance, and in the morning set your intention for the priority actions you want to accomplish that day.

Take action: You are co-creator in the process of bringing your dreams to life. To write down your dreams and goals is the first action after the thought process.

Taking action doesn’t necessary mean that you need to do the thing right away. Writing down is a form of taking action. Researching and learning is also part of taking action. Always keep learning in life.

Experimenting and failing and then experimenting some more all part of taking action. Until you perform greatly, and then there already something else/new you would love to learn to go to the next level and the whole process starts again.

Out of a comfort zone: Do everyday something that takes you out of your comfort zone. It might be something totally unrelated to your goal, like taking a cold shower in the morning or doing something you’re afraid of.

But since we’re in the context of materializing your dreams and goals, do something from you action plan that you know is important for you to achieve your goal, but you are uncomfortable or afraid to do it.

Courage: So take massive action with courage, persistence and consistency and at the same time don’t be too attached to the outcome. Do your best towards your dreams and goals, give it everything while taking care of yourself and your loved ones of course, then ‘Let Go and let GOD’.

Delegate what is distracting or what feels uninspiring to you. Is there someone else who can do this better than you? then delegate it to them.

***

The techniques above applied with focus, dedication and repetition with will help you break free from your limiting beliefs and transform your self image at the level of your subconcious mind. This will enable you to materialize your dreams and goals.

We all have goals we want to achieve. Sometimes they are resolutions we take at the beginning of the year, other times it’s a milestone we want to reach in a ongoing project, and others times again, it is a dream that we secretly want to see come true.

Who doesn’t love a fresh start?  As a new year begins, we set new goals, we are enthusiastic about them and we think to ourselves: “I can totally do this. This year will be different. This year is THE YEAR”. Right?

But if we don’t focus on our goal and monitor our progress, eventually that enthusiasm fades away as time goes by. At the end of the year, many of our goals haven’t been achieved, and there comes another new year. And the cycle of setting goals and not achieving them starts once again. The New Year resolutions phenomenon. How to break that cycle for good?

In case your goal is not related to new year at all, may be it is just that one dream you have that you’d really love to accomplish, but you just don’t see how to get there. How to finally materialize that dream?

10 Ways To Renew Inspiration and Deal With Discouragement

Recently I stopped working on my projects for a moment in order to recover fast and completely from a cold I had. After I recovered, I found myself doubting about my projects. Was I going to efficiently accomplish my goals?

For example I doubted if I was helping and inspiring enough people with my blog and I felt discouraged because I was advised to start guest posting on other blogs to drive targeted traffic to my webpage, but I haven’t done any blog posts yet and it kind of makes me feel uncomfortable – Guest posting seems to be essential when it comes to becoming a successful blogger and I feel heavy when it comes that. Because of those doubts, my momentum slowly decreased. I got discouraged. I felt uninspired.

That has inspired me to write and share with you 10 ways how I deal with discouragement in order to feel inspired again.Keep Reading

The Happiness Experiment – Creating Habits

These inspiring words of Mahatma Gandhi suggest to me that our habits which are sustained by our actions, do define our values which in turn shape our destiny.

“Your beliefs become your thoughts,

Your thoughts become your words,

Your words become your actions,

Your actions become your habits,

Your habits become your values,

Your values become your destiny.” — Mahatma Gandhi

So, if we work continuously on building great habits, then eventually, once established, those habits will start working for us in creating an amazing destiny.

Learn To Forgive

Forgiveness often doesn’t come to us naturally. Most often the instinctive reaction is to hold grudge or to get even.

Even when we want to forgive, it can be difficult because we forgive with our words but we still feel grudge inside.

This can cause damages to our Self in the long run. So it is important for us that we learn to forgive if we want to live a truly fulfilled life.

In this blog post, I will present some simple principles that will help us learn to forgive.

Find out the positives that have emerged from that experience and be grateful for it. You know that you have forgiven when you can be grateful for the experience.

Be grateful for the fact that you have grown from the hurt and the wrong that the experience has caused into your life. Be grateful for the people who helped you in the process of overcoming that situation.

Realize that since you are still here, alive, it didn’t destroy you. The lessons you have learned from it will make you stronger, wiser and you will be valuable to other people. Keep Reading

Free Yourself – Let Go

As long as our space and our life is full of things, people and memories we don’t want or don’t feel good about, we cannot have room for what we really want.

Learning to let go might be the first step you need to start creating the life you love.

By letting go, we create an opportunity here and now. That opportunity can then unfold into something new, better or more suitable for the person we are in this present moment. Keep Reading
