Stay faithful!!!Stay faithful!!!

Friday, June 29, 2012

Today’s mental workout for reflection Fridays emphasizes the need to stay faithful, to your spouse and dearest friends of course, but also to those dreams and goals that define you. Don’t cheat on your true goals and dreams with the latest distraction that comes your way. Be committed to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals, legally that is. After digging deep inside you and realizing your true goals in life, next comes the ‘I do.’ Relentless commitment to achieving them! Hold yourself accountable, set specific timetables to accomplish certain tasks. Be specific in the amount of income you want to make. List the action steps you need to take with the highest priority first. Determine which steps will create the most meaningful impact and set up measurables to track progress. Planning is essential to spark your brain to create neural pathways in the destination you wish to go.

Assess your current situation, are you pursuing goals and dreams that belong to you? Are you chasing dreams that belong to your parents? Are you just trying to impress your partner or friends around you? Do your goals match up with your passion and talents? In some cases, you may think you want something badly only to change your mind later. Your goals and dreams need a courtship period, you need to determine the power inside you. How far are you willing to go? If you truly want something deep within, you will create boundless energy and enthusiasm. Your goals are not a one night stand, you must be prepared to commit for the long haul. You have to put in the time and hard work as well compromise on other things. You must be mentally prepared to gain strength through adversity putting you in the minority of those with the courage to persist in the face of challenges.

Program your subconscious before you go to sleep to focus on your goals and desires. That’s what your mind is for, to create the life you imagine for yourself. Furthermore, on a conscious level, communicate a story to your mind why achieving your goals and dreams is important. Engage your mind to see how important it is to you. Draw in all your senses to appreciate your quest. Paint a picture with your story, give it depth, texture and meaning. Bring your goals to life, be vivid. Make your goals original and unique, there is nobody else on Earth like you with your experience. Dare to dream beyond what you know. Broaden your horizons by learning about other cultures. Expand your mind, expand your results. To change your life on the outside, tap into the power within. Follow your desired path through the natural flow of your passion and energy. If you don’t stay faithful to your goals and dreams, you cheat yourself out of the life you were born to live. Speaking of commitment to one’s desires, we wish a fond farewell to pioneer Nora Ephron who passed on a few days ago. As always, make it a faithful mental workout.
