Think about something you want (For example, I want more money.)
Think about WHY you want it. (So I can pay my bills and have some breathing room at the end of the month.)
Think about how you will FEEL when you get whatever it is you want. (Relief, less stressed)
Now, instead of continuing to think about what you want and why you want it, focus on how you will feel when you get it. Close your eyes, picture how life will be when you have what you want. Imagine how it will feel when you have what you want. Really focus. Really feel how good it will feel. Do you feel it?
You know that feeling you get when you know something good is going to happen? That feeling of anticipation? Like, say, you’re going on your dream vacation next week and you’re looking forward to it so much that you just want to do a little dance every time you think about it? THAT is how you want to feel about how you want your life to be.
KNOW that it’s coming your way. Feel the anticipation, the excitement of how good it’s going to feel when it gets here. Let that feeling carry you through the moments when you start to doubt.
Don’t work so hard on getting what you want that you make yourself sick.
Just let it happen
When you start sliding the other way and going back to thinking about why you want what you want (Oh my God, I got another bill. There’s no way I can pay this. What am I going to do???) . . .
Close your eyes.
Take a long slow deep breath in.
Hold it for a second.
Now let it out and…
Go back to that feeling of how good it’s going to feel when you get what you want. Feel the relief wash through your body. Feel the anxiety melt away.
Continue to take deep breaths while you let that feeling of relief wash over you.
Remind yourself that you can have anything you want.
Goals and the action steps needed to reach your goals are important but just as important is believing that you can reach your goals.
Every time you worry about whether or not you can or will reach your goal, you set yourself back another step.
Don’t let the worry or fears in.
When you feel them coming, follow the steps above…
