Start Your Day With a Cup of Motivation
(Here's a sample of success motivation you'll receive each day by email)
Automatic SuccessToday's headline is not what you think because success, at first, is NOT automatic. But it IS after awhile. Let me explain.
Right now you have many skills that you rarely, if ever, consider. You know how to talk, type, surf the Internet, walk, read, eat, put on clothes, bathe, and so on.
All of these skills are automatic for you right now.
But at one time they were a struggle. Learning to speak your first word may have taken you a year. Learning to walk, about the same amount of time.
When you learned to walk you fell repeatedly. Yet, you got back up each time you fell down - until you mastered walking and it became automatic.
Think about driving for a moment. Today, you can probably drive a car and carry on a conversation at the same time. Yet, at one time, when you drove, you had to stay fully conscious of every move you made ... or else ....
Once the skill you've learned is implanted in your subconscious, it takes over and you don't have to think about it. It's automatic.
Well, how you see yourself, your self-image, is also automatic.
Over a period of years, you were told things about yourself that you accepted as fact. Yet, they are not. They are merely an opinion that you think of as true.
I once knew a guy in college that I thought was the stupidest guy in town. And he had the grades to prove it. Today he's a Ph.D.
What was the difference?
He changed his self-image. He stopped seeing himself as stupid. He pictured the subjects he easily understood and enjoyed, then he transferred the positive emotional energy he felt to the other subjects he wanted to learn - and it worked like magic.
A few weeks ago I started working with Chinese bao ding balls. I put two in each palm and while I walked I moved them in a circular fashion, using nothing but my fingers and a fair amount of concentration.
Once I got fairly decent with two in one hand, I watched a DVD of a man in China using five in one hand for some exercises - but usually three. He went through an entire chi kung routine, holding various stances, and his hands never stopped moving the bao ding balls.
This made me think: Okay, why don't I try three in one hand?
When I tried to maneuver three balls in one hand, I kept dropping one of them. Each time I dropped the ball I said to myself, "Pick it up and do it again. You can learn this."
Eventually I stopped dropping the ball. I could move all three balls at once.
When I got even better with three balls an automatic habit formed. I noticed that I was walking, juggling and thinking about something else, all at the same time.
The skill I was struggling with was now easy. I now understoond once again, automatic success.
The same can be said of your mind when you give it a new image to ponder. At first it may seem odd, after all, you're used to thinking differently about yourself. But in a relatively short period of time YOU begin to change on the inside as well as on the outside.
And the NEW YOU in your imagination becomes automatic in the real world.
