Last post we explored the process of how your environment can tear down your self-esteem, trigger worthiness issues, and cause you to narrow down the window you view the world through. But once you become aware of this negative and destructive process, you can stop it – and begin reversing the trend, building up your self-esteem and expanding your window of prosperity consciousness.
This is when you fight to take your dreams back...
To maintain your confidence and persevere through the challenges this will entail, there are five insights you need to know. Because once you do, you’ll know what you need to do and why it’s so important for you. You guys who follow my daily prosperity Periscope broadcasts will remember this topic from a week back. Let's break it down a little deeper. Here are the five insights you should think about:
1) Your Life is Created by the Thoughts You Give Precedence to All Day.
This is the core teaching of James Allen in As a Man Thinketh. You actually construct – or destruct – your life, thought by thought. When you simply let thoughts “happen,” you fall victim to the thousands of negative memes and limiting beliefs circulating through the datasphere at any given time.
When you become the thinker of the thought – meaning being mindful and choosing what you think about – you are able to build a positive life and move daily toward your dreams.
2) To Change Anything Outside, You Must First Change the Inside.
If you want to change the way people treat you, change you. If you want to change the economy, change you. If you want to change the weather, change you. If you want to change the world, change you. That is the inside work that creates the real breakthroughs.
3) Mindsets are not created in a day. They’re forged in 30-day cycles.
After 30 days of doing anything, it has become a habit for you. And mindsets are also the result of habitual thinking. So don’t take a positive thinking course on Monday and expect to be a multi-millionaire or Olympic gold medalist on Tuesday. Know that when you put together 30 days of a positive mindset it changes your results greatly. And then you build on that mindset, going even higher in the next cycle. And the next and the next…
4) You create a better life by creating a better self-image.
Your self-image is created by the mental pictures you play in your mind all day. How you actually visualize yourself succeeding or not. Which is why insight number one is so important.
5) If you really believe you can achieve something – and you act on that belief – you will achieve it.
The key word in that last one is really. You have to really believe you can do something. You can sing “I believe I can fly,” but you don’t really believe that and thus the law of gravity still applies. And it may be inspiring to suggest you can move a mountain with a mustard seed, but we both know that ain’t happening.
But when you set a goal you really can attain and go to work, it will happen for you. Just make sure you’re doing your daily self-development, keeping your mindset positive and know that your subconscious mind will guide you to taking the steps to making it a reality.
If you understand and act upon these insights, you really can live your dreams. And that is what I wish for you.
