Part 2 of Staying on target with your goals
To stay on target with your goals, you need to control your focus and thoughts. Controlling your focus means controlling and directing the things that enter into your sphere of awareness which are reborn as your thoughts and experiences. what enters your mind becomes apart of your character and your internal make up which can either aid your will power and focus or hinder it, you have to be a good judge. so stay clear of bad mental food.
Bad mental food is the number one courses of internal resistance… Music, TV programs movie, friends, what you read, its all in your head and is shaping your thoughts, what you put in your mind can cut your success journey short. what come into your sphere of awareness, influences your views and beliefs which dictate your actions. Feed your brain with what it needs to accomplish your goals… you are what you eat physically and mentally.
Negative mental images and associations are much the same as negative self talk but the focus of the person’s negativity is normally revealed in the relationship the person has with a goal.
An example of this is person who’s goal/new years resolution is for instance to get fit, he decides to take up jogging, this person goes out buys new trainers or running shoes tops and pants a heart rate monitor and a new I-pod and latest jay z album to listen to while running.
When the day comes to get out there and do the job, he trips up mentally, He imagines how other people may see him, or what they are thinking about him. He goes deeper into his hallucinations and sees a movie appear in his minds eye…. He sees faces laughing at him, judging him, as he is jogging down the road to the park. The images scare him, which holds him back mentally from the accomplishment of his goal which was to get fit.
majority of people are to busy living their lives, so into their own issues that they rarely give a second thought about what others are doing, most people are to busy thinking about themselves.
His associations need to be positive. He should feel a great sense of pride and accomplishment in his efforts knowing that he is quite literally jogging his way into his ideal image, he should let his confidence shine though, he should imagine people seeing a confident man who is focused on his goals.
Be on the look out for limiting beliefs that you may uphold and those that you may take in from your environment by way of friends, family and colleagues. Limiting beliefs are all around… you must shield your mind with a positive anti virus fire wall.
Internal resistance in the form of Bad Habits. Bad habits are easy to spot they are the behaviors that we are trying to leave behind, we tend to do them on a regular basis, they are the habits that lead us away from the accomplishment of our goals, we know deep down what they are. Write your bad habits out, so it is clear in your mind what you need to drop or change to bring you closer to your goals.
