The secret is right in front of you. Starring you right in the face but most people miss it, ignore it, or are unaware of it. That’s why most people are average.
The secret to success isn’t really a secret. But the magic of success is your ability to align yourself with your dreams and goals.
When I say success, I mean success in whatever it is you want. Money, business, career, relationships, health, happiness and spirituality. Success to me is having all of these things in abundance.
THE BIG LIE:
Success is hard.
Success is not hard.
It does not require sacrifice.
Success is being in alignment with what you want. That means, making choices and staying true to what you want.
It’s not hard because you become one with your goals.
It’s not what you do, it is who you are.
Staying true to what you want is what will align you with opportunities and the universal law of attraction. When you stay true to your goals and minimize distractions, the universe will conspire to help you succeed in ways that will blow your mind.
How do you align and stay true to your goals and dreams.
1: Stop what is stopping you
This is huge. Most people never come close to reaching their dreams because they will waste way too many hours a day playing on their phones, watching TV, or some other useless time suck.
Why I deleted games on my phone.
At first it was something to occupy my time while waiting online at the airports. I justified it as brain training to think several steps in advance to win. But then it became an obsession that interfered with my life wasting 2 or more hours a day. So I deleted the apps and use that time to write, to study speaking Spanish, meditate, or simple be present.
I used to watch political news every day, but I turned that off for the same reasons. Now I use the time to listen to personal development audios. Instead of wasting my mind, I empower my mind. I feel so much happier and peaceful now.
2: No Excuses and commit to your dreams.
This is no surprise. What is surprising is how few people actually do this.
You can have results or excuses but you cannot have both.
If you want to run a successful business, or live in a house on the beach, or be in a relationship that is loving and flourishing, you must be committed to making it happen.
What do successful people do in business or career?
They are focused and purposeful in their work. The show up and play full out.
What do healthy and fit people do?
They eat healthy and exercise every day. It’s incredibly simple. I don’t love to exercise. But I love the feeling of being fit, strong and energetic. There is never a question about how I start my day … with exercise.
You get the idea. You must be focused and do the things that brings you closer to your dreams and goals every day. It’s simple. But so easy to find reasons not to do it.
3: Faith Bigger than your doubts.
Even if you do not know how or when it is going to happen, you must believe that it is possible. You have to believe it is inevitable.
When I was running across America, it was not “if” I would finish. It was “Nothing can possibly stop me and I will finish on time without injuries.” And that is exactly what happened.
Actor Jim Carey wrote a check to himself for $10 millions dollars with a 10 year goal to achieve it. Almost to the day he got the role for Dumb and Dumber for $10 million dollars. He didn’t sit on the couch and wait for it, he mastered his craft and the universe rewarded him and presented the opportunity of a $10 million dollar acting role.
It would be easy to say that Jim Carey or anyone else who has achieved something remarkable “never had a doubt.” But the reality is that you faith is bigger than your doubts.
Faith is not something you have or you don’t have.
Faith is a muscle that needs to be cultivated and strengthened like any muscle.
You crush your doubts by starving the negative thoughts and feeding the faith.
Stay focused and take bold purposeful action and stay in alignment with your dreams and who you will be and everything will fall into place.
Here is your “secret formula” …
Stop what is stopping you
Get results, don’t make excuses.
Let your faith be bigger than your fears.
