Our thoughts are a series of mental pictures. These pictures are stored as our version of “reality.” We did not intentionally put these pictures in our minds, they were accumulated by where we lived, who we are around and our family values.
Whether it’s sticking with a New Year’s Resolution or focusing on personal or business goals, success begins with changing the pictures in your subconscious mind.
You can easily change your pictures using the following techniques:
- Control your thoughts
- Change your picture
- Create a better inside world
- Assume responsibility
- Stay away from negative people
Control what you think about
Remember that the RAS filters out unimportant sensory information from your conscious mind. It determines what you notice and what you pay attention to. You will only be aware of what is important to you NOW.
Your present thoughts determine your future. Think about what you DO want, not about what you DON’T want. Make what you want important.
You are the one who decides what is important by what you think about. If you envision yourself as successfully reaching your goals, your RAS will filter out any information that is contrary to your desires.
You move toward whatever is in your mind, whether or not it is good for you. When you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, IMMEDIATELY stop and think about something else.
Keep a stash of mental pictures that are good for you; daydreams, fantasies. When you catch yourself thinking negatively, simply switch your attention to your fantasy.
Change your picture
The reason people don’t succeed with their goals is that they try to change the behavior before they change their mental picture. That never works.
Changing your picture changes your behavior automatically. Picture first; behavior follows.
We move toward the strongest picture in our heads. If we have two conflicting pictures of ourselves, the strongest one wins. The strongest picture in your mind determines the direction that you move in.
Envision yourself as the success you want to be. Incorporate this vision into your stash of positive mental pictures.
Because it took time to put the negative picture of yourself in your mind, it will take time to change your picture or yourself.
Work on it several times every day and it will change.
We create an outside world to match the one in our mind
To be successful, you must see things the way you want them to be, not the way they actually are. By doing this, you cause your creative subconscious to generate the energy to change the outside world to match your desires.
Remember, no conflict, no energy. No energy, no change.
When the world inside your head and the outside world, don’t match, you get MAD and generate the energy to do something about it.
Once you change your picture, the RAS starts working – action takes place immediately.
Create a better picture of life and life will change for the better.
Don’t be a victim
You are in control of your life. You have the power to change anything that you don’t like in your life.
You are not a victim.
You are personally accountable for your own success.
If you take the responsibility and the accountability, you are admitting that you have control.
Your subconscious mind will stop blocking information that will lead to your success. You will notice the answers that have always been around you. You will ACT upon your desires and your life will change.
Stay away from negative people
We accept the reality of how people tell us we are.
The people around you supply the paint for your mental picture of yourself. If you spend time with people who tear you down, your mental picture becomes one of gloom and despair.
Surround yourself with people who tell you how wonderful you are and tell others how great they are as well.
Your picture will begin to change; as soon as it does YOU will change into the best YOU that you can be.
