Identify What Messages are For You
What is your heart’s desire? Whiter teeth? More shoes? To lose 20 pounds? These, and things like them, are very rarely the desires of our hearts. Advertisers and product sellers are skilled at triggering your feelings of lack. Their strategy is to convince you that you desire the products. Those desires are mostly the bi-product of the feelings and beliefs we actually want to have, but the specific items themselves are not the desire.
1) Get Specific
Instead of having to wade through the layers of thoughts, superficial wants and subliminal beliefs you may have picked up over years, there is a simpler way:
2) Define a Goal or a Vision
Pick a goal you want to work toward and write it out or pin up a picture of something you desire.
3) Know Your Why
Define the real reasons you want to attain that goal or manifest the vision. What is your motivation? Be honest. What feeling are you going to have when you are doing or having this thing? What will you believe about yourself in this future state/condition?
4) Act As If
When you are or have obtained or are doing this ‘thing,’ what are your actions? What words are you using? How are you living your life? Now, start acting as if you are already ‘there.’ Embody that person.
Once you get clear on what it is you truly desire, you will naturally begin to eliminate what isn’t that. In fact, you literally won't see anything that doesn’t align with your vision/goal. (The Colour Blue) It eliminates whole chunks of information that simply don’t apply, freeing up so much more energy to get where we want to go. The brain is cool like that.
Let Wishy-Washy Go
Let go of wishy-washy, I-don’t-know options. If it’s not a definite ‘yes!’ then, it’s a no. Don’t waste further energy going nowhere. Instead of having the outside, greater society dictate who, what and how we should be, we take that power back and the uneasiness goes away.
Pick a goal. Get a Vision. Align Actions with Desires. Spend time each day, even if it’s just 10 minutes, on something that will bring you a step closer to your true desire. Invest in it. Invest time, energy, money, everything you can think of in big and small ways.
