- Your thoughts are not in alignment with the results you want.
- You spend more time thinking about what you don’t want instead of what you do want.
- You set goals from a space of should instead of want.
- The company you keep is not in alignment with your goals.
- You spend no time visualizing your results.
- You feel guilty about your goals. Again, thoughts and feelings are out of alignment with the result you want to create.
You want to save money but you are thinking thoughts like, “I deserve to treat myself, I work hard” or “I’ll just splurge this once, I’ll start over next paycheck”
If thinking about saving money makes you feel deprived, you aren’t in alignment with an abundant mindset. You are putting a kink in your hose of abundance.
Those thoughts and feelings do not align with your goal to save money, so you don’t. In fact, you do the opposite, you spend, which moves you farther from your goal of having money.
It’s same for wanting to lose weight, getting the new job, making more money, attracting the love of your life. The list goes on and on.
Your brain’s motivational strategy is to seek pleasure, avoid pain and conserve energy. Your subconscious is where we operate 90% of our day. That part of the brain knows nothing of delayed gratification and seeks immediate satisfaction.
So thinking from the primal part of our brain, we will always be at odds with our goals, we will feel at odds with ourselves!
When you spend your time thinking thoughts like, “I don’t want to be fat, I don’t want to be alone, I don’t want to be broke…” That is exactly what you are creating in your life. You invite more of what ever you are thinking about. What are you thinking about?
When you set goals from a place of I should lose the weight, or I should save more money, I should get a better job…instead of from a place of want, your brain thinks your should is optional. Your brain won’t take that thought seriously.
Remember, your brain wants to prove your thoughts true…all of them! But a should is only a suggestion, it’s not a commitment, it’s not a decision.
You have to spend time stepping into your future self by visualizing your goal from a place of already achieving it. Visualize yourself at your ideal weight, making the money, having the career, having the relationship. Do that often, daily even!
When we feel guilty for wanting to up level our lives, we are out of alignment with our goals. We are putting a kink in the hose of abundance. When you worry about what others will think if we lose the weight, get the job, move up in our careers, we lose the plot of our own life, the one we want to create.
Surround yourself with people who cheer you on, advocate for you and celebrate your success with you.
