Imagine the following: you are where you want to be. That you are what you wanted to become. That you received all that your heart desired. And the way you got there was that you depended on yourself and no one else.
What will it take for you to achieve all that? What will you do to be able to depend on yourself for all that and no one else?
The only way to that place is by becoming aware of who you really are and what you have to change to achieve that. “See yourself on the screen of your mind as the person you want to be, then become that person.” – Bob Proctor.
Here are some ways to become more aware of yourself:
- List all the positive attributes you think you have. Name as many as possible.
- List the things, let’s call them dreams or goals, you want in life.
- List the things you don’t like about yourself and circle the ones you want to change.
- List the ruts you think you may be in.
- List the comfort zones you have that you know about.
- Write a letter to yourself that explains the highlights of what you want to achieve and what you feel you need to begin to change in yourself to get or become the person you want.
- Pick 3 books, I recommend the library, that you feel will help you achieve that and read them. Take notes.
It’s safe to say that it should take you about 2 months to complete the lists and read the books. Remember, those lists will probably change and be added to.
As an added bonus of accountability, keep a journal as you go through this. This journal will be invaluable as a tool for a long time. You will be able to reflect back and use its information in many ways. I guarantee that as you become aware of yourself, you won’t be able to go back to you old self. Little by little, you will change into what you want to become. After the books are read and the lists are complete, begin to move into ACTION mode. Study, learn, ask, listen, develop, involve yourself. You will change.
Most important aspect here is to not stop the flow. Use your imagination to see yourself where you want to be. Maintain that vision and perspective of yourself.
Here’s to your success!
