Using the right tools in life helps you get the job done. Just think of a time when you worked on a handy project in your home and reached for the Philips head screwdriver to screw in that Philips head nail, or when you were hanging that heavy mirror on the wall, you made sure to have the proper anchors in place. So just as we use tools for doing specific tasks in our homes, there are essential tools and strategies for our lives that support us in our desire for creating lasting change. These concepts provide the basis for processing change and creating dramatic results…and that’s why I’m excited to share these golden nuggets with you!
- With any goal or idea that you decide to pursue, you must first start with making a conscious commitment to it.
- Write down your goals. This has been proven by several studies that the odds are in your favor for achievement when you get specific and write down what you set out to attain. You can also take this a step further by creating vision boards showing pictures of what you are looking to accomplish.
- Let go of any negative feelings as much as possible since the energy to create change occurs at a higher vibration. Then focus on establishing the right mindset by demonstrating these key high-energy emotions – love, peace, joy and gratitude. These emotions are the foundation for creating positive results in your life.
- Realize that when you are in the process of working towards a goal and proceed to make some forward movement you will initially take a few steps backwards each time. Don’t give up when this happens. Consistency over time will produce results.
- When working on your goal, understand that you will usually feel resistance around the 6–8th week of implementing your new behavior. This is a natural process when you venture outside of your comfort zone. Having this awareness is essential so that you don’t give up in the process. Just be patient and continue to take baby steps forward in spite of the uncomfortable feelings.
- Be willing to leave people behind. We tend to stay comfortable in our “tribe” – family, friends and other personal relationships, but as we change our circumstances, the connection with these people will also undergo significant change.
- Set the right environment by interacting with people who are doing what you want to accomplish. In addition to the people, look around your physical environment and make sure that you are being properly supported aesthetically. For example, remove any clutter and make your space pleasing to your senses.
- Get comfortable with loss – the natural byproduct of change whether positive or negative will produce a sense of loss. Understand that life is a continuous process of loss and gain. However, the caveat is that you have the ability to choose what you prefer to focus on. You can generate a sense of excitement and joy in the present moment by thinking about your desired outcome.
- Whatever you are working towards, no matter how much you want it, you may be unconsciously rejecting it based on the belief system that you have been operating under. This inner conflict will get in the way of what you are looking to achieve. Hence, you would have already created it. By answering the following question you can learn more about what might be getting in your way: What would be your worst fear if you achieved this goal?
- Don’t be afraid to reach out for support. Keep in mind that some of the most successful people are those that can ask for help. There’s no need to figure things out on your own in an effort to feel independent.
