Does Your Success, Depend on the State of the Economy?
I do not believe that any change or fluctuation in market conditions should have any bearing on how your future turns out. The real predictor of how your life will unfold is determined by your beliefs and consistent daily behaviours. Despite the current doom and gloom about a double dip recession and newspapers splashing headlines every day about the recession we are experiencing, I believe that you still get to write your own success story.

The long term sustainable success, which we all want in our lives, is the result of:

•Having a crystal clear vision of what you want
•Believing in yourself and your abilities
•Improving your knowledge and skills every day.
•Developing a success habit set, which supports your efforts
•Taking daily action.
•Measuring your outcomes
•Consistently, focusing on your vision and thinking positive thoughts about the outcome you want to achieve.
Create a crystal clear picture of exactly what you want in your future and start to program your subconscious mind to support this vision. Research has shown that in excess of 96 % of what we do every day is controlled by our habits. We drive our cars safely through traffic, stop at traffic lights, know exactly how fast to drive safely around corners, etc. All without, even giving all the actions we are taking a single conscious thought. We don’t have to think about how much pressure we put on the accelerator pedal or how much we need to slow down around corners. Our subconscious brain takes care of all of these decisions for us.

There was however a time when we had to think about each action we took. We had to think about pushing down slowly on the accelerator pedal and gradually releasing the clutch. As we approached a corner we had to be reminded to slow down enough to safely turn. So what happened, how come we are now able to drive through busy traffic, negotiate hazards and arrive at our destination safely, all without thinking about what we are doing.

There are two major factors at play, the first one is simple to understand, we have consciously programmed our brain through practice and repetition, to function independent of our conscious control. The second factor is one we don’t at first see, but is very obvious when it is pointed out to us. The second thing we do is we believe 100 % in our ability to drive and we allow our subconscious mind to take over completely and do what it does best, namely function alone to carry out your habits. As we drive we don’t constantly challenge our ability or technique. Criticising our driving ability, we just believe in ourselves and let our subconscious take over.

Training our subconscious mind to perform an intricate task like driving us around in a vehicle, is something we do without interfering or even giving it a second thought. This allows us to, in almost every case, drive very successfully without any mishaps from one point to another. The process is simple; we have a vision of where we want to go before we start any journey. We believe that we can do it and then we just allow our subconscious mind the freedom to do what it does best and we get where we want to go.
I am proposing that we do something similar with teaching ourselves the art of achievement and traveling down the path of success.

•We need to get a vision of where we want our lives to go
•Consciously supply our subconscious mind with all the skills it needs to perform these daily activities and routines
•Believe that these skills will get us there
•Just allow the process to unfold. Do not constantly interfere, by chastising or criticising yourself every time you encounter a challenge.

Imagine what would happen, if every time you encountered a pothole or someone cut you off, whilst driving, you immediately started chastising yourself, criticising your driving ability. You would not get very far at all, you would spend most of your journey involved in conscious thought, never allowing your subconscious mind to do what it does best.

If this will not work for a simple thing like driving, can you imagine what you do to yourself, all day as you constantly question your every action, filling your head with negative self-talk and doubt. You are wasting your most powerful resource, namely your subconscious mind doubting, instead of believing, trusting and just letting go.

The reason people like Donald Trump, Oprah and Richard Branson, get so much done each day is that they discover what they need to train their subconscious mind to do every day. They go about the business of consciously learning these skills, thereby programming their unconscious mind to do exactly that and then they trust, believe in their ability and just allow their success to unfold.
The way to achieve long term, sustainable success is about:

•Creating a vision of exactly what you want
•Acquire the skills you need to succeed
•Turn these skills into a success habit set.
•Believe in yourself.
•Allow your subconscious to work unhindered by negative self-talk.
•Measure your progress and see if you have all the skill you need.
•If your behaviours are delivering the required results – take no action – just allow.
•If your habits and behaviours are not delivering the desired results – Re- assess and discover the skills you require – consciously get these skills – Create a new habit set - just allow.

One of the most powerful times of the day, when your subconscious mind is the most receptive to programming, is the last five minutes before you go to sleep. Don’t waste this really powerful time regurgitating all the things, which did not work during your day or going over all the challenges you are expecting the next day. When you fill your mind with negative input or you watch a really violent movie just before falling asleep. You are programming your brain with negative information, which is going to serve as the input, your brain is going to soak in, for the next eight hours while you sleep and recharge your batteries.

Action Idea: Program your subconscious mind every night just before you go to sleep, by using consistent powerful positive affirmation. This will allow you to enter your sleep state, where you are soaking in your subconscious mind for eight hours, to remain in a positive state. As you percolate in your subconscious mind throughout the night you will be empowering yourself for your day.

When you consistently do this every night, you will wake up every day in a far more positive mind space, believing in yourself and that every event, which happens in your life is the seed of greater good. All the events, which cross your path each day will be seen as something that will eventually enrich you in some way, empower you or assist you to advance your cause, delivering abundance to you. Imagine how much easier bringing success into your life would be, if you were constantly expecting everything to support you.

Once you have programmed your subconscious mind, just allow and only question your actions, when you review them daily or weekly. When you do this, the magic starts and you are allowing your subconscious to do what it does best, unfettered by your negative conscious thought. You are indeed abundant and unlimited, with an incredible tool, namely your subconscious mind. Allow your subconscious mind to do what it does best, namely to operate independent of your conscious mind and you will begin to achieve all your dreams.
