People Who Get What They Want: What Are They Thinking?
Imagine being able to choose any outcome and automaticallyfeel motivated to make it happen.
No matter what's standing in your way, you'd be so driven that you would blow right past it. You would get what you wanted every time.
Sound too good to be true?
I thought so too, until I learned a basic truth about the way we think and act. When you know how it works, it's easyto create a drive that compels you to do whatever it takesto create the kind of life you've always wanted to live.
So, what is the truth and how can we use it to get what wewant? Let's find out.
THE UNDENIABLE FACT OF LIFE
It's so simple that it's often overlooked. And because mostpeople don't realize how powerful this truth really is, most people don't know how to get what they want.
Wouldn't you agree with that statement?
Out of the millions of people who wish for a better life, only a very, very small percentage actually get what they're after.
And there's a reason: they overlook the basic truths of life and fail to use them to their advantage.
I don't want you to make the same mistakes, so let this idea really sink in...
- We do what we do for a reason. -
In other words, some kind of reason, whether good or bad,is at the root of everything we do. To the average person,this doesn't mean much, but you're not average. You'll soonbe able to see just why this is such a powerful idea.
WHY DO PEOPLE FAIL?
If you asked ten people on the street why they want to change or improve their lives, I have no doubt that youwould get a whole lot of,
'Huh? Um...I'm not really sure. I guess I never thought about it,'
'Because it would make me happy.'
Sorry, but that just isn't good enough. I said we do whatwe do for a reason, but not just any reason. It has to bea good one, a powerful one. When you put a weak reason behind any goal, it's not going to happen.
'It will make me happy,' isn't strong or specific enough.It doesn't excite or inspire. Taking into account the wayour mind works, this is never going to move you to action.
And this is why so many people keep wishing for a better life instead of enjoying one. They don't have good enough reasons behind their goals.
So what's the answer?
WHAT CAN I DO?
Develop better reasons!
It's that simple. If I told you that walking across the room would radically change and improve your life in aninstant - and you truly believed it - I guarantee you wouldbe moving your feet right now.
Because the reason moved you to action. It was powerfulenough to make things happen.
And that's what you need to do when it comes to your own ideas of a happier, more successful life.
Think of yourself as a master storyteller. The better storyyou tell about what success will do for you, the faster it will happen. When you sell yourself on what you want, you'll effortlessly and automatically be driven to make it happen.
And it all starts with a good reason.
So take some time right now to think of at least three great reasons why your goal is worth achieving. Make themspecific, powerful, exciting, and inspiring.
The better the reason, the better the result. So make your reasons for success so powerful, so compelling, so enticingthat you can't help but follow through with action.
