We all know that person, the one who seems to have it all together, who accomplishes everything they put their mind to and they make it look so easy! How do they do that? The truth is, you too can be that person, we ALL are capable of greatness; we just don’t all get there! Many of us are afraid to take action, or make changes, fear failure or lack persistence. The good news is you can attain that inner strength, you hold all the power you need but it will take a bit of convincing. ;)
Some things to think about to tap into your inner strength....
A) Visualization. Seeing is believing. Sit down and really think about what you want to achieve and set some goals. Write them down and be very specific about what you WILL achieve. Cut out pictures, quotes or images that inspire you to reach those goals. Some would call this a “vision board”. Once it is done put it up somewhere you can see it everyday. Once you get to your goal, create a new one or add on the current one, but always keep that vision in your mind. In doing so, you are well on your way to being that success story!
B) Practice. Do you know anyone who trains to be in second place? If you are going to show up, why not show up to WIN! This means you put in to practice anything necessary to be on the stage. That may include giving up some indulgences to do that extra study session or gym session. Maybe stick to your good eating plan or getting extra tutoring to make the grade. Practicing your jump shot to make the team etc. It will take some extra effort on your part, but the old saying is true today – “Practice makes Perfect”
C) Strong Wing man. You need to surround yourself with people who are positive and successful. People who can act as a role model to inspire you to tap into your own greatness. It is amazing, but peer pressure can have a positive influence as well to drive your actions!
D) Will Power. You may think you have none, but that is simply not true. It could be locked up right now without a key, but you can be your own gatekeeper and unlock it! It takes some discipline, but studies show that people who exhibit good will power tend to be more successful at reaching their goals. It sometimes takes some mental aggression! Try these simple tests to your will power. Choose to NOT watch your favorite TV show. Choose to stay off of your social media accounts for 1 night!!! Get up out of bed as soon as your alarm goes off in the morning. Stop your self from that double caramel latte for 1 week. The more obstacles you tackle, the stronger your will power will become and you can then apply it to bigger things and just watch how quickly you will begin to attain your goals and be successful!
E) Abstain From Negative Thoughts. Whether it is your own thoughts or someone else, if it is not positive then you do not need it. Stay on your path, positive and on track!
