Most likely you’ve made a New Year’s Resolution and most likely it is very similar to the one you made last year. What’s going to be different this time? What is going to get you over the hump? Are you really going to “try” this year?
We’ve all said it. We’ve all thought it. We’ve all heard it… “I’m going to really try this time…” We make commitments to ourselves and convince ourselves that this time it is different. This time I am really going to try!
Did it work? Did you achieve this time, or did you just try and fail…again? So often, we tell ourselves that trying harder is the answer. Try with all your might, try like there is no tomorrow! Why doesn’t “trying” work?
The real question that needs to be asked is, “Do I believe success is achievable?”
When we continually tell ourselves, “I’m going to try,” as soon as we start “trying” our subconscious mind says we’ve succeeded and it is time to shut it down. Believe it or not, success depends on the way we talk to ourselves. When we use words that don’t frame our goals as matter of fact we sabotage our success.
The word “try” means just that “to try.” As soon as we actually begin “trying” we’ve succeeded and our minds think we’ve completed our initial task. Game Over…
“Try” also has connotations of difficulty and pain. We like the easy roads and the paths of least resistance and trying doesn’t facilitate ease.
So now what? Where can success come from?
What if your “self talk” was only framed in the affirmative? Instead of telling yourself you’re going to try this time; see and talk to yourself as if you’ve already accomplished the goal. See yourself as having already accomplished what you desire. How does that make you feel? Do you have a new self-image? When you begin to see yourself in this light, your mind will start to work in conjunction with these new beliefs and helps you fully achieve them.
The negative connotations are gone too! Your mind believes success has already been achieved and acts accordingly…
You can achieve your biggest dreams if you’d just start to believe, act and talk as if you’ve already achieved the success you desire!
When I achieved my weight loss success I told myself I could reward myself with a certain car. At the beginning, that is all I thought about. I imagined what I would look like, what it would feel like and how proud of myself I was. I began to believe it had already happened and my life began to harmonize with those new beliefs.
I was no longer stuck in the “trying” mode! I was on my way to ultimate weight loss success…
Quit TRYING! Start Believing in YOUR Success!
