Wouldn't it be cool if you could program yourself so you just could not fail?. In truth, people program themselves so they fail at things, every day, so by reversing the process, we can program ourself for success.
The truth is, there is a series of steps that we should be made aware of, that can improve our chances, and accelerate our advances. if we are not made aware of these steps, then we are at the mercy of “chance”.
Most things that happen to us in life, are not “accidental”. In fact, some people would argue that “everything happens for a reason”. You may wonder how this is so, and this is where we need to comprehend that life does not happen to you, it happens “because of you.”
Every thought, every decision, every action has an effect on our lives at some stage. The things we do, or did not do are laying the foundations of how our lives are going to work out, either today or at some stage in the future.
The 5 Steps To Create Your Unstoppable Program
Step 1. Behaviour
Behaviour means action or inaction. This is the step that most directly controls our success or failure. The right series of the right actions will always end up making things work better than the wrong series of the wrong actions. In almost every case, if you take the right actions, you'll end up with a better result.
Good question. And you may be thinking it's because people don't know what to do, or don't have the right direction, education etc. These things may play a small part in a person's success or failure but I'm here to tell you, this is not the main reason why people do not take the right action.
It all has to do with:
Step 2. Feelings
Every action we are about to embark on is first filtered through our feelings.. How well we feel about something will always determine what we do or how well we do it.
Have you ever watched a child being made to eat something he or she didn't like?. Look at how a child reacts to a plate of fresh vegetables, then put a plate of vanilla ice cream in it's place. You will see a totally different reaction. This is because we all associate with different things, differently.
It is your feeling toward the action you should take, that determines whether the action even gets done. This is the problem with most people. They associate negative feelings with things they know they should be doing. Hence the inner struggle with themselves.
It's not that people don't know what to do. The world is full of information on how to do things. It's just that people associate the wrong feelings with the actions they know they need to take.
So, what controls our feelings?
Your attitude is the perspective from which you view life. There is a big thing going around that “Attitude is Everything”. This is not true. It is something, but it's not everything.
You could have the best attitude in the world, but without the right feelings or the right action, you will still be short on success. However, most human beings have a mixture or attitudes. Some good, some bad.
Whatever attitude we have about something, will determine how we feel about it, which of course determines what actions we take. I hope you are starting to get the picture now. Winning and being successful in life is not a one stop shop, the root cause of success or failure runs deeper than what most people think.
So, where do our attitudes come from?. Are they magically picked up at birth?. Are they formed by accident?. No. they are created, controlled and influenced by:
Step 4. Beliefs.
What we believe about anything will determine our attitude about it, create our feelings about it and determine our course of action over it. This snowball effect determines how well or poorly we do, which leads to success or failure.
Belief is so powerful, it can actually make something appear totally different from what it really is. Belief does not require us to see something as it really is, it only requires us to believe that it is really so.
This is why some beliefs are so strong, they can cause people to believe things that just aren't true.
Your belief sets off a chain of events. Maybe you were shy and didn't make friends very easily. Maybe you were rejected by someone at some stage (who hasn't been?), your beliefs were and still are that maybe people don't like you very much.
Your attitude is one of avoiding people, your behaviour now reflects your beliefs and you go out of your way to avoid people.This causes you to feel bad around groups of people so the actions you take are to avoid socialising.
Can you see how your beliefs are holding you back?
Many, many beliefs about ourselves and others simply are not true. We restrict ourselves ever day through our limited thinking. We are each and all powerful individuals who often believe we are not good enough, when in reality, we are.
So, how can we change our beliefs?
Step 5. Programming
Everything we believe, has at some stage been programmed into us. We have had many influences, including our parents, our teachers, employers, TV, Films, Books etc.
Most of what we believe about ourselves has been slowly fermenting over the years right from day one. And remember, our beliefs influence our attitude, our attitude affects our feelings which in turn directs our behaviour, which leads to our actions.. which determine our success or failure.
It is the deprogramming of negative beliefs that are not serving us, and the reprogramming into our subconscious mind, the positive beliefs that will serve us, that will ultimately turn you into an “unstoppable force” that cannot fail. When I say, “cannot fail”, this of course does not mean you will not meet with failure, it simply means that failure for you is only temporary, whereas quitting is permanent.
So how can you program yourself for success?
Step 1. Eliminate all the negative talk you pour into your brain every day. No, this isn't easy, but from now on, filter the things you allow in your head. You wouldn't deliberately drink poison would you?. then why allow poison to enter your brain through your thoughts?
Do you ever hear yourself saying any of the following? –
- I can't do that
- knowing my luck
- I always get this wrong..
- If only I could
- Oh, what an idiot
- I'm terrible for remembering names
- I'm not good at that
- I can't seem to get organised
- It's just no use
- It's going to be another one of those days.
The negativity that many of us pour into our brain each day goes on and on. You must remember, your subconscious mind is listening to your self chat all the time and it is helping bring about what you are sending to it's command centre.
If you tell yourself “I'll never lose weight”, guess what. Your subconscious goes to work to ensure you don't. This is the NO1 reason why most people don't get what they really want out of life. They simply spend their time sabotaging their chances of success.
So, how can we turn it all around?..
What we think about most, we bring about. This does not mean if you think about an elephant, an elephant will appear. This simply means that if you think you can't you probably can't and if you back that up and take no action, you never will.
However if you reverse that. “If you think you can, you probably can and if you back that up by taking action, you probably will”.
Your thoughts are constantly steering you towards something. This can be good or bad. It's up to you. You have to believe it's possible for it to become possible. Taking action towards your goal and actually seeing and feeling yourself in the moment attaining that goal, will draw you ever closer to that goal.
I hope you found value in this post. To be honest, I could talk about this subject all day.
Many people look for something outside of themselves to get the success they want. The highest power hid the secret inside our very own minds. Some people never thought of looking there, but once you unlock the secret of your own mind, anything is possible.
