7 Mindful Steps To Success

7 mindful steps to success

Often in the midst of crisis, competitive pressures, and family obligations, we can feel overwhelmed and forget to focus our attention on the desired outcomes of our goals rather than the immediate circumstances of our situations. We can listen to the news, read industry reports, and hear colleagues who describe probable and dismal outcomes that they say are inevitable. The only way to keep yourself focused on the goals and outcomes that you want to experience is to follow a consistent daily routine that is deliberate in priming your brain for success so that you can achieve the outcomes that you desire.

I’ve learned that the most effective way to keep your goals in the forefront of your thoughts is to wake up 30 minutes earlier each morning to hold a meeting with your inner self.

Treat your morning meeting with your inner self seriously. Hold your meeting in a space that is free of disruptions, and create an agenda that you’ll follow. Make sure that you also have the necessary tools available: an uplifting book that describes successes of others achieving their goals, a pen, and a notebook for you to write in.

1. Read something that inspires you

Spend five minutes reading something uplifting to put you in a receptive mood. As you read about the successes of others, your mind will look for ways to make those kinds of successes familiar and normal for you. Suggested books to read are listed in the back of my book, The Path to Wealth.

2. Write down what you are grateful for

Spend up to 10 minutes writing a gratitude letter. Be grateful for the good things already in your life, as well as the things that you hope to have soon. Psychologists agree that gratitude and happiness help you to be more focused and able to solve problems.

Express gratitude for what you have like health, family, and great employment. Also express gratitude for what you want as though you already have received it; harmonious relationships with family, friends, customers and co-workers and increased sales at work. The subconscious will then be directed to search for ways to help make these goals a reality.

3. Read what you are grateful for out loud

Spend up to five minutes reading your letter out loud with emotion. Studies have shown that when we read something out loud, we anchor it into our subconscious, which will help us to notice more possibilities to make our statements true. Remember the last time that you were planning to buy a new car? Didn’t you start to see that car on the road everywhere just before you purchased it? Your subconscious was helping you to notice possibilities to make that car yours.

4. Visualise reaching your goals

Spend up to five minutes with your eyes closed imagining what it will be like to have your goals realized. What will you be experiencing, and how will you feel? Who will be celebrating with you? As you see yourself in your realized goal, you’ll anchor the belief that it can be yours.

Olympic athletes use this technique as part of their training. They see themselves making the shot, winning the competition, celebrating with teammates and family. If you want to win and achieve your goals, see yourself doing so first.

Jack Nicklaus, one of the world’s greatest golfers never took a shot, not even in practice, without having a clear in-focus picture of it in his mind first.

Author and motivational speaker, Earl Nightingale put it perfectly when he said

“Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.”

He knew that repetition would reap rewards.

At this point, you’ve spent 25 to 30 minutes with your inner self establishing your goals and giving your subconscious directions on what to focus on attaining. Now, go ahead and get your day started. Your subconscious will begin to do its job.

5. Follow your intuition throughout the day

During each day, be on the lookout for leads, intuition, directions, and opportunities that will point you in the direction of goal attainment. Some of these leads might not make sense, but as

Steve Jobs said, “have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

Take a step to do something, call someone who comes to mind out of the blue, or follow up on a gut instinct to go to a particular location.

Many famous and successful business people have used intuition as a success tool. Bill Gates said,

“Often, you have to rely on intuition.”

And, Oprah Winfrey shares

“I’ve listened to that still small voice of intuition my entire life and the only times that I’ve made mistakes is when I didn’t listen.”

All of us have intuition and can learn to recognize it and enable it to show up more often through a daily routine for success.

6. Celebrate your successes

Acknowledge your successes with someone who you value and trust. Celebrating and happiness activate the frontal cortex of your brain, which helps you to focus clearly and see more possibilities. Celebrating is a fun part of the process and helps you to gather proof and confidence that your partnership with your inner self is working

7. Let go of what’s holding you back

Give up anything that could be subconsciously holding you back. If you are angry or feel any resentment toward another or yourself, give it forth. This may be one of the greatest characteristics of successful people. They release anything that is not consistent with the life they want to live. This can be tough, but it is possible.

To start, commit to saying the following each night before bed:

“I release anyone and anything from my past or present that is not serving me well, whether I remember them or not. And if there is anything that I have done in my past or present that needs to be released, it is now done and everyone is free.”

Do this for a minimum of 30 nights, and you’ll feel lighter and more at peace as a result. You’ll also be able to notice more possibilities to help you to attain your goals sooner.

Practice these seven Spiritual steps on a regular basis, and enjoy realising your goals in a more consistent and enjoyable way.

May you be blessed on Your Path to all that is Good!
