Overtime you’ll come to realize, if you haven’t, that you can only effectively change your life from the inside out. You are able to change your life only when you’re able to change your mind. It’s a new calendar year and true to norm, you must have made out a list of goals to achieve. I assume that you’ve had that talk with yourself where you look through the experiences of the previous years and think of ways to do better.
With the euphoria of a new year comes the energy boost to set new goals but this is as far as that external energy can push you. If you intend to go further, you’ve got to source great strength from within. What are your grand plans for the New Year? And how do you position your mind to support your ambitions?
How do you position your thoughts for excellence? This calls for a renewal of your mind for if you don’t believe it, you’d never be pushed to action and if you don’t act, the ink with which you wrote down those goals would have been wasted.
Here are three ways you can change your mind to instigate consistent renewal:
All that your mind dwells on originate as words. Go back to your list of goals and try to visualize what your life would look like when they are achieved.
It takes time to get the right words to stick so, keep the words ever before you! Write them on small post-it notes, set them as reminders on your phone, make them into audio recordings and set them to play at set times. This is how you make it real. If you can visualize it, you can be it.
It was George Bernard Shaw who said, “Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” The Nobel prize winner didn’t waste words there. As a man thinks in his heart….
It’s a new year but there’s no new you—unless you act with intentionality.
If this helped you in any way, share with your circle.
I believe you’ll keep getting better because I trust that you’re wise to take actions.
Till next time…
