What’s holding you back from enjoying a happy relationship, a successful business or whatever your dream goal is right now?
Most likely you have some fear or failure energy attached to the goal; particularly if this is something that you’ve been wanting for an extended period of time. It’s common to find negative energy underneath the desired goal. However if that negative energy is stronger than the positive energy, then it will control the outcome.
Here an exercise to flip the energy you are putting on the actions you are taking while working towards to your goal. Get colored pens, some paper and sit where you will be undisturbed.
1) Write your goal at the top of the paper. Use words that inspire you, i.e., “My exciting trip to India.”
2) Then write somewhere on the page the feelings you want be experiencing as you are working towards your goal. If you think of the old saying “It’s not the destination, it’s the journey”, how do you want to feel while you are on your quest towards your goal.
3) Write some questions you can ask yourself to keep your focus on the feelings you choose to experience. As you go through the day from to time check to see what the answers are to those questions at that moment. See what you can do to bring yourself back into alignment with those feelings if you find you are out of sync.
4) Take a few minutes and examine a couple of your typical stumbling blocks to achieving goals. For example, do you find yourself doing everything except what will take you towards to goal? Are you uptight and anxious about your goal? Are you working so hard without taking time for pleasure? Write down in simple, present tense what you would like to be or do instead of what you see you are being or doing.
5) Create at least one mantra in simple, present tense that will inspire you each day to take action on your dream goal. It’s best if they are your own, but here are a few examples:
i) I am an achiever and keep my focus on my joy.
ii) I enjoy the present moment at all times.
iii) I take pleasure in everything that I do.
6) Write down what you will do when something comes up that appears to be an obstacle or negative. Making choices when you are in a situation gives you a better perspective.
Here’s an example:
Do this and chart your progress over 30 days. Make any adjustments and keep going. You’ll reach your goals faster with less effort than ever before.
