Where is the Power?
The paradox about achieving great things is that it’s not dependant on how much you do, but more on what you are in relation to what it is that you want. This is why achievement can be elusive and seem so difficult, whilst in reality be a simple, straight-forward process.
So how do you exercise your intent successfully? You can only start from a place of certainty.
In order to get what you want, you must believe you can, but of course, to believe in something you need to first decide what it is that you want to believe you can achieve! If that sounds so obvious as to insult your intelligence then I apologize, but why is it that so many of us go through life never quite achieving what we want because we haven’t clearly decided what it is that we want… and we haven’t realized that we haven’t decided what we want? Crazy huh?
You must be certain of what you want, that way you can remain committed and be ready to learn what you need to learn each step of the way. A plan is handy thing to have, but not without a certain goal at the end of it. Plans change, but your goals generally remain, even if you find a completely different route to achieving them.
The fuel of your intention is your certainty. Imagine a captain of a ship who isn’t certain about where the ship must sail. The crew would not be committed to the same cause. There would be no common cause. You could have crew members pulling in different directions depending on how they perceived the captain’s "Wishy Washy" intentions.
So before you can put any belief into practice, you must know what it is you want and be certain that it is in fact what you want. How do you know if it is really what you want?
That will be covered in the next Mindset Tip!
For now exercise your mind and get it working on your side.
