The Secret to Getting What You Really Want
What’s on your wish list? An ipad? A piece of jewelry? A new kitchen? Maybe even a trip to some warm Caribbean island for a week! Or maybe you’re being more practical, maybe you’d like to lose 20 pounds. Be more organized.
Break through the six-figure barrier into making seven figures. And perhaps you know how exactly what you need to do, and perhaps you’re still at the vague idea stage.
There is no shortage of people who have foolproof plans they guarantee will help you lose 20 pounds in 20 weeks eating whatever you want. You can find 20-step teleseminar series that will teach you how to organize your home, your office and your life. There are myriad programs that promise they have the secret that will enable you to create the right mindset for success.
Why These Strategies Don’t Work
They don’t work because they’re STRATEGIES, they’re a plan, they’re another way of doing something that will hopefully be more effective than what you’re doing now. But they all have the same premise: take Behavior A, substitute it with Behavior B, and you’ll supposedly get a better result.
That could work IF you can muster up the willpower and discipline to stick to it. But once you’re past that first rush of anticipation and excitement, it usually turns into a struggle, especially if you’re more comfortable with the way you’re accustomed to doing things. And whoosh! There goes that resolution out the window!
Great… so what does work?
What works is becoming a person who easily and effortlessly acts and behaves in a way that supports achieving your goals, because that’s who you are. Once you become a person who naturally makes choices that are aligned with whatever goals you’re seeking to achieve, you don’t need willpower and discipline any more. You’ll want to do the “right” things, because that’s what feels instinctively right to you.
