Here's a great way to program, or set yourself up, for success in advance. It is one of many of what I call, New Empowering Habit Plans (TM). A New Empowering Habit Plan is a formula for achieving success in any given area of your life and requires a minimum of 21 consecutive days of implementation. Why 21 days? Because research by behavioral scientists has proven it takes at least 21 days to establish a habit.
This NEHP starts with taking the first 15-30 minutes before you get out of bed to plan & visualize your successful day on paper. Remember we agreed that it takes at least 21 consecutive days to establish a habit? Commit to do this NEHP for at least 21 consecutive days.
What if you were to develop a fun and exciting New Empowering Habit Plan for taking just a few minutes, every day, to plan and visualize your successful day on paper? In doing so, you would be able to project any obstacles or consequences; but more importantly, you also could construct, or program your success. With this invaluable and innovative information, you can literally set yourself up for success by planning and seeing the future in advance.
"Exactly How do I do this?"
One of the exciting things about this NEHP is that it is not an "exact science." Consider it uniquely yours. It can be as simple as keeping a pen/pencil, notebook or note pad by your bed. As soon as you wake up, grab your writng/drawing utensil. Then, you might want to close your eyes as you meditate, pray or regain your faculties (if your not a morning person). I suggest you take a couple minutes and literally run your entire day in your mind. Visualize; really see yourself, succeeding ... all day long.
Win, Write Or Draw!
Now, open your eyes and begin doing your day on paper. The real magic of this NEHP lies in the power you manifest when you put pen/pencil to paper. This has been long proven to amend our thinking. Why not make a point to amend for great thinking? I'm not going to get into that right side brain/left side brain stuff; I'll keep it simple and say ... you will win, when you write, draw or combine the two, to construct and program your successful day.
Be very clear and put your appointments to succeed in chronological order. Cultivate an unshakable expectation to succeed. Put magic in the mundane! For example, in your 9:00 a.m. slot where you would normally anticipate contact with an obnoxious supervisor, draw them with a smile as she tells you your being promoted. Zoom in on the smiles, pleasant demeanors and positive energy you both exchange. Or, maybe you feel more comfortable writing a mini-goal or powerful positive affirmation at least ten times. Really believe it. In your 7:20 p.m. slot, you may write down: "I go 4 for 4 and play a flawless left field tonight." Once you are crystal-clear on how you are going to set yourself up for success, you reaffirm your ability to make it happen.
WARNING: You May Get More Than You Project!
It's said that long before Jim Carrey made it BIG, and before he even appeared on "In Living Color," he walked up to the Hollywood Hills one day. There, he wrote a check to himself, and put it in his wallet. The amount on the check was for ten million dollars. In the memo he wrote in, "For services rendered." Today, as most of you already know, Jim Carrey makes a minimum of twenty-million dollars per film.
In February, 2003, I wrote down on paper that I would sell my house in three weeks for $280,000. The new owners would be first-time homeowners-not investors. My house sold in 11 days and for 19 thousand dollars more than the asking price. The new owners are a happy family of three and are very happy in their first home.
I have two great friends who, seemingly, have the ability to win jackpots at will using this NEHP. But, this particular New Empowering Habit Plan really, is not just "all about the money." It has much more power than that. I've manifested, fulfilling, loving and meaningful relationships, world-wide publications, vacations, empowering strongholds, businesses, 4 for 4 flawless defense softball games and just plain fun!... I sincerely believe you can too!
To Your Success!
