Believe in Your Success
Believe in your success. There’s no doubt that seeing ourselves as unsuccessful or caught in an inescapable loop can become a self-fulfilling prophecy. The opposite of this a delusional belief that we are just going to be rewarded with no effort or drive or plan. This post is about the middle ground. Hitting the sweet spot where you can actively work towards your success.
For me Maya Angelou’s definition of success is hard to beat: “Success is liking who you are, what you do and how you do it.”
What’s Your Definition of Success?
Maybe a high paying job, luxury home, the latest watches, designer clothes. Nothing wrong with that! If that’s what you truly want. Imagine for the moment that you have all of these hearts desires BUT no one knows about them and will never know. How do you feel about it all? Is it for yourself or other people? Your idea of success could cover all your bills and a little extra, wearing what you like when you like, free to
So even if you do have the trappings of success, it just may not may you happy in the end. Be honest with yourself. Decide what you want and go for it. Do you agree that the only successful person is a happy person?
Picture Your Achievable Success
Here are some prompts to help build your success framework. Motivate your mind to achieve your dreams by taking some time to think about and list your answers to these questions. This post might come in useful
- What’s important to you? What are your values in life? knowing what really drives you will fulfil you?
- What do you want to do? Anything and everything snowboarding, helping the community, swimming with sharks, flower arranging, salsa, combat the energy crisis
- What type of life do you want? Do you want children/ more children? Country living? City living? Single? Married? New career? .
- What it will take for you to feel successful? How does it look feel and sound when you’ve “made it”. What’s there?
- What would I like to be remembered for? What will you be glad you’ve done?
Now you have an idea of what you do want and by imagining it you are letting your subconscious as well as your conscious guide you into making the right decisions for your success! Of course, Hypnotherapy makes this process easier. By focusing your attention and vividly imagining your goal you will find it harder and harder to self-sabotage or undermine that dream of yours. When your mind believes it, you can achieve it.
Remember you don’t have to justify yourself you can pay lip service to people questioning you but it doesn’t have to hit deep or, make you strike a different course. Remember some people are very good at living other peoples lives for them! The hypnotherapist in me says but always listen to good advice. Good advice is useful. If it’s not useful it’s not good advice! Like you would with anything weigh it up …. And proceed accordingly….
Believe in Your Success
As you go deeper into your version of success finding what you love and working on it consistently, ignoring the naysayers and the need to impress others. The more you work on it the more the work doesn’t feel like work, the greater the personal meaning the higher you’ll see yourself soar. With an ease of effort. With the answers to those questions above you can paint your own picture. Now you’ve finished this post why not write your lists? It will cement the foundations. Your headspace will be a good place to live, you will like you. Make it a great self-fulfilling prophecy. Believe in your success.
