“Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t, you’re right.” -Henry Ford
All the thoughts we think and the words we speak, as well as beliefs we believe, shape our reality. If we continue to think and believe that we are not good at communicating, we will never move to a role, which requires e.g. selling and marketing skills. Our self-image and the belief we hold about ourselves will always block any opportunities that come our way for us to become experts in marketing.
Why is that?
Our self-image that is stored in your subconscious mind controls our performance. We will never be able to outperform our self-image. This is a fact! Our self-image sets the boundaries for our performance in our life and in the lives of other people.
Three Steps How To Change Your Self Image
- Be honest with yourself and be clear on what you want to have, do or become in your life. There is a reason why corporations use a vision in their strategies. The vision determines the company’s direction. When you know where you’re going, you instinctively start looking for and finding the multipliers that will get you there.
Your imagination is limitless so visualize yourself as you truly wish to be. Don’t be shy, don’t be humble and definitely do not think thoughts like: …Oh, I know what I want but can’t do it; or I am not smart enough to become this kind of person.. or.. I am not good enough to get there… Nobody is perfect and we all learn and constantly acquire new skills, knowledge and competencies through our experiences – which also includes our mistakes!
Dream big; imagine whatever you want in your mind! Nobody can control your mind, unless your allow it so why not go over the top?
2. Find a pen and paper and write down a detailed description of what you want in life including the kind of person you want to be. Next, believe that you can be happy, wealthy and healthy at the same time, imagine yourself like that, and write everything you see down.
3. Continue to build this picture in your mind and get comfortable with it. Picture yourself joyful, healthy, and prosperous and notice the feeling you feel while you are imaging it. Repeat this visualization as often as you can, ideally when you are feeling relaxed. From a scientific point of view, when you put a good feeling to your new self-image you will activate new brain cells which will trigger you to consider new actions and ideas that you can carry out in your life and these will ultimately start to bring you closer to your Brand New You.
How is it going to happen? Through your desire!
Many people who use the word DESIRE tend to get it mixed up with the word ‘expecting’. The word desire comes from the Latin word DESIDERO which means to long for, to feel a very strong want for something to happen or to have something. To truly desire something you must be ready to give up something else in your life in order to get it. Let us be honest, it would not be called desire, if it was so easy to get what our heart wants.
Be patient and have faith. With your new self-image, you are on the right track. If you need help to build your new self image and get it stored in your subconscious mind, just drop me a note and I will be happy to provide more tips on mental training.
