The role your mindset plays on achieving any goal and how you live your life is key. For so long I´ve been wondering why I can´t achieve anything worth having in life, why can´t I achieve any of the goals I set even when I have a plan and I know exactly what to do and finally I realized that my mindset was taking me away from success. If you don´t know why you can´t achieve your goals even when you have a plan and know exactly what to do this may be the reason.
To achieve any goal there´s something you need to change, you need to make different choices, learn new skills, act different and this means you´re getting out of your comfort zone and every time you do this your mind will fight you back.
In most cases achieving any goal is more of a mental game, once you can control your mind it´ll be easier to achieve what you want. Our thoughts create our reality whether you know this or you want to accept this or not, negative thoughts equals negative life, positive thoughts equals positive life.
Getting your mindset right is the hardest thing to do, it´s not that simple to just think positive thoughts and you´ll attract what you want, things doesn´t work that way, if it was this simple many of us would already have everything we want. There are some things that need to work together, your thoughts, feelings and emotions need to be in harmony and this is easier said than done.
You have a conscious mind and a subconscious mind, you may be thinking and saying that you look great, you love your body and having all kind of positive affirmations which are lies that help you think and feel a certain way but your subconscious is stock in past, in negative thoughts that are contradicting and your subconscious wins. Your mind loves repetition so you need to repeat those positive lies enough so that your mind takes them as a reality.
Once you decide to make a change and to take action following a plan to achieve your goal your mind starts playing games with you. How many times have you set the alarm earlier to wake up and exercise before you go to school or to work and the moment it sounds so many thoughts come to your mind like “it´s to earlier”, “start tomorrow”, “you need to sleep more” etc? All this reasons why you don´t need to take action is your mind trying to keep you in the same place.
Once you start changing your thoughts you also need to work on your feelings, how you feel is what you attract to your life, if you feel happy you attract happy moments to your life. Smile more and have more fun and you´ll see how your day starts to be more fun. Listen to music that lift you and dance to stay in a positive state.
Nothing will come if you don´t work for it, even when I think that our thoughts create our reality and that our feelings attract more of the same I also believe that if you want something you need to work for it.
You need to train your mind the same way you train your muscles, one simple technique you can use is meditation. Meditation can help you be aware of the present moment, be aware of your thoughts making it easier to change any negative thought to positive and stay focus on your goal. Along with meditation you can use techniques like visualization and affirmations to give your brain a clear image of what you want to achieve. Once you have a clear image try to think about how it would feel if you have already achieve your goal and feel those emotions as real as you can. The longer you stay focused on this positive thoughts and images of your goal and the more time you can stay in a positive state the fastest it will become your reality.
Once you have the right mindset you need a plan of activities you need to do every single day that will get you where you want. It doesn´t matter how hard those activities are or if you want to do them or not, with the right mindset you´ll think of the end goal and you´ll do what you need to do whether you want or not.
