Do have your own little ecosystem that feeds your dreams, vision and goals? Just like plants your productivity is largely dependent on your environment, your own spiritual, physical, social, financial and emotional soil to which you are planted.
You want to paint a picture of your preferred future and constantly work to translate your mental picture into your physical reality. Sadly your mental picture is heavily influenced by your physical environment.
So how do you break free from a limiting environment? So you were born into a certain class in life but you desire more but it seems like you are hitting a glass ceiling, invisible but there nonetheless. You need to alter your neuro feeders, there is a connection between the signals from your brain and your sensory and physical responses. That why for example there are techniques for coping with pain or pleasure.
In altering our mental reality we need to pay attention to gates, we have the eye gate, ear gate, mouth gate and skin. Now for this purpose let’s focus on the Eyes and Ears. What do you constantly see and what you constantly hear?
To create the future you desire and to experience growth you want to precondition your hearing and seeing with the sole purpose of creating your desired future.
Are you paying attention to the following?
What are your predominant thoughts?
The music you listen to.
Your experiences must be scripted. Travel, go to desirable locations.
Friends – it’s only as children we play with the neighbors, as grownups you choose your friends, except you are not serious about making progress
You want to engage in physical activities that releases happy hormones like serotonin, dopamine that helps you feel mentally alert.
You need hope. What dreams inspire you? The reason you always have to drag yourself from the bed is because your dreams don’t inspire you, are looking forward to the future. The sad reality is most people are not. Put a dream before you that becomes your internal alarm clock because Life is beautiful.
What are you reading? They say readers are leaders. You should know your section in any bookstore, read wide but you should know the books you read and the ones you want to read.
Design a system to crystalize happy memories. A lot of people are sad because they have lost the ability to remember all the greatness that is in their life. They are constantly preoccupied with everything that did not happen.
It is far better to be alone, than to be in bad company – George Washington
“The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment you first find yourself in” – Mark Caine
Just like the world is too organized to be the result of a big bang, your life and environment will not change because of happenstance. Do not think you will wake one day and then realize your house has suddenly appeared at the beach front, or your room will just get organized. You need to organize for success, condition your environment for progress, and design your life for growth. Be deliberate!
Commit to a daily routine to grow your mind.
That’s G.Y.M for today and I trust that you are charged up and obsessed with a burning desire to succeed. Ordinary is a misnomer for you.
Plan, Act and Pursue your dream.
