If you struggle with a way to achieve your goals I want to share a quick solution to your problem. First off, let me say there is no goal you cannot achieve. Let’s lay that affirmation out there right now. Chances are when you were growing up someone told you:Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right both ways.Click To Tweet
I’m going to illustrate my point by sharing the story of a good friend of mine, Gregg Inocencio. I met Gregg in 2015 when I was having problems with my elbow. Gregg was a physical therapist and helped me rehabilitate my arm. During the weeks I spent with him, I learned that Gregg was an athlete who liked to compete in strongman competitions. Gregg had competed in many region and national events but had been struggling with placing in the competitions the way he wanted. He always did well but felt he could do better. I had read a book called Promptings by Kody Bateman. The book was born from a tragic event in Kody’s life but the message of the book was very powerful: “The stories in your mind become the stories of your life.” What you think, you manifest. You literally will your future and your goals into existence. I know it sounds very metaphysical but I can tell you story after story where it has worked. I thought this book could help Gregg so I sent him a copy. He “sorta” listened to it from time to time but never really took it seriously — until recently.
I got a message from Gregg the other day and he told me that he had won the Delaware Strongest Man competition. Gregg told me that he was able to achieve his goal through his commitment, training, and what he learned from listening to Promptings. He was very grateful for me sharing the book with him and I was honored that I was able to help him.
By the way, here’s an amazing video of Gregg dead lifting 650 lbs. and then 700 lbs!
How to achieve your goals by using Promptings strategies
If you are looking for the silver bullet to achieve your goals regardless of how big they are, here is a simple 5 step process to make that happen.
- Write down your goal – Commit your goal to a physical piece of paper. This engages multiple centers in your brain and the more of your brain you can use when working on your goal, the better.
- Visualization – The subconscious mind cannot differentiate between reality and imagination. You have to learn how to visualize your goal. You have to engage as many senses as possible when doing this. What does achieving your goal look like? What does it smell like? What does it taste like What does it feel like? What does it sound like? The more senses you engage, the more real you can make your goal.
- Speak in present tense – Don’t write your goal as something you want in the future, write it down as if you already have it. If you are telling your subconscious that you already have it and your conscious knows you don’t, your subconscious will begin to resolve that and bring what you “have” to reality. Don’t believe me? Ask Gregg.
- Write what you WANT not what you DON’T WANT – If a goal is to get rid of your credit card debt, it’s not a good goal to say “I am getting rid of credit card debt.” A better goal is “I am living financially free.”
- Read your affirmations daily – Repetition is the mother of skill and only by reading these goals/affirmations daily will you reinforce the disparity between reality and your goal and only by reinforcing that will your subconscious work in overdrive to make it happen.
