How is that some of us create possibilities and others only react when things happen. Well, I am a strong believer that you can create your life’s blueprint just the way you want and not react to things that have already happened. I understand that this might not make sense to some of you, but have you ever thought about not doing anything and allowing things to happen on its own. Don’t be surprised as most of the people lead lives like this and are only reactive rather than proactive.
“To get something you never had, you have to do something you’ve never done.” Is the famous saying which I feel is absolutely true. You have to move out of your comfort zone to create new possibilities in your life. The truth is those possibilities are always within your reach. You may not be able to quit your job or develop new skills one fine day; but remember every day contains within it countless opportunities, all dictated by the choices you make. Some of these choices may seem inconsequential when you face them. They’re the little things after all. Why not do it how you usually do? Why not stay in your comfort zone when it’s just so comfortable there? Do it for the possibility. The possibility is that if you make one minor change you may set the stage for major fulfilment. Sometimes even the smallest shift in thinking or doing can create the biggest opportunity. Here’s how to get started:
Get it out of your head: First thing first is to ensure you get your ideas out of your head. Once you bring it out in the open then you can work on acting on it. Now the question arises as to how you bring it out of your head? I try writing down on a paper and allowing it to flow naturally; some of my clients do come with wonderful ideas especially during our Coaching conversations. The eureka moment can happen at any time or at any place if you commit to it and work on it diligently. Patience does seems to pays here.
Be committed: There is no progress without being committed. As with all new avenues commitment is the key. You can only develop this habit by stepping up and at times sticking your neck out. Once you have made up your mind to commit then it is just a matter of time before this results into action on the floor. Writing down your goal and vision statement is critical here because when you see this every day the commitment seems to increase. It has worked for me flawlessly. I do not see any reason why it should not for you irrespective of the goals you are working towards.
Redesign your thought process: Replace negative thoughts/patterns into positive ones. This is absolutely a challenge no doubt. I am aware most of us are inclined to harbor negative thoughts rather than positive ones, but negative energy/thoughts kills your energy whereas a positive thought does just the opposite. When you want to create new possibilities you might want to flush your mind with more positive than negatives. When I work with a client I am discreet and work on a slow & long approach to redesign the thought process which is a long term permanent solution.
Visualize Visualize & Visualize: If you cannot see the things you are doing in your mind’s eye then who else can or want to? By seeing things vividly and clearly even before it happens creates road maps in your brain which is the key. Having a map for reference makes it always easier to reach a destination and this is no different. The Only thing here is that you are working on creating the map on your own which according to me is pretty exhilarating. Visualization is not just day dreaming but vividly seeing the things which are yet to happen like a movie and in absolute clarity. The more clarity you can develop on the images the better. You should be able to feel, smell and at times even feel the taste of success. I know this might seem Greek & Latin to some of you but each one of the most successful people around you & me have used visualization to a great extent.
Work on your belief structure: This is as important as anything else and my simple take is “if you do not believe in yourself how can you expect the universe to believe in you “So developing a belief structure is the key. It can be developed by using powerful can do words and of course body language. Sometimes the age old method of looking at the mirror and telling yourself that the goals you are working on are doable works best. Belief structure is not as complicated as it sounds and with simple daily efforts one can master this just like any other new habit.
Remember that opening to new world of possibilities is an extremely positive action which will empower you far more than you can imagine. When you step up to take on new avenues in life then the Universe never disappoints you. It is fair and just. It will probably test some a little more to see the endurance level; however the one who is persistent and focused will eventually be successful. Most of the famous personalities touch upon this topic in different ways but the common denominator is that they stepped out of their comfort zone and into a world of possibilities. My question to you right now is – are you ready to step in to this world and if yes, then welcome aboard!
