Getting What You Want From Life

The bull’s-eye above reminds you to choose a target if you want to improve your life. The target is what you want out of life. This post assumes that you want to improve your life but may not know how to get started on that journey.

This post is divided into two parts. The first part is deciding to take charge of your life. The second part is deciding what you want out of life. These two things may seem to be obvious to you. However, I believe that if you do not get these two things right then your hope for improving your life is doomed to failure. Read this post and tell me if I’m wrong.

Deciding to take charge of your life

This may seem to be such stupid thing to be concerned about. After all, doesn’t every adult control their own life? I maintain that this is not always true. There may be a number of unconscious barriers to living your life the way you want.

You may have to overcome some artificial barriers before you feel free to make this decision. Following are some common barriers, along with reasons why they should not stop you from seeking a better life.

You may feel trapped and unable to do anything to improve your life.

Don’t try to make major changes overnight. Start by making small improvements and by increasing your personal power. Then as you develop experience and self-confidence, you’ll be able to make additional improvements.

You may consider yourself unworthy of having a happy life.

Okay, so you’re unworthy. However, many people could use your help. So stop feeling sorry for yourself and start helping them. (Of course, this will require that you take charge of your own life.)

You may feel that obligations to family or other people should take precedence over your own happiness.

You don’t need to forsake your obligations. In fact, you’ll be better able to satisfy these obligations by increasing your capabilities and gaining more control over your own life.

I hope that you now can decide about your future without being hindered by any artificial barriers. The choice of what to do with your life is entirely up to you. Naturally, I hope you will opt for a better life.

Deciding what you want from life

Now that you have overcome the first hurdle in improving your life, what next? Well, now you have to decide what you want from this improved life. Here are some ideas that may help you.

Many people seem to get the most enjoyment and satisfaction from life while fulfilling their true desires and using their natural talents. However, your true desires and natural talents may be buried under layers of social conditioning. I have developed some methods that may help you discover the real you. This involves making a list of those accomplishments and activities that brought joy to your life

Your achievements—what have you accomplished in your past life that made you very proud?

Your emotional highs—what activities in your past life have you enjoyed the most?

Pretend you are having a lucid dream—describe what you would do and why you would do that. (While having a lucid dream, you can do anything you want without regard for the laws of man or nature. You can be anybody or do anything. You can fly like Superman, travel to another planet, go back in time, or even go forward into the unknown future.)

Pretend you are by yourself for a month—how would you spend this time?

Now go over the notes from these four exercises. Don’t be concerned if the results seem silly or unrealistic. This is simply a way to reveal your true desires and natural talents. Future posts will show you how to use this information to improve your life.

Secrets of the Subconscious Mind

If only I could get it done. If only…

Your subconscious mind, if used wisely, is the most important factor in your success or failure in life. This post will explain why this is true. Also, it will describe the basic functioning of the subconscious mind and its effect on your actions and expectations in life.

Your two minds

You have two minds, the conscious and the subconscious. Each has its own functions.

The conscious mind is your gateway to the outside world as revealed by your various senses and the conscious control of your body. The conscious mind operates in a sequential manner, doing one thing at a time. For example, if your conscious mind becomes deeply engrossed in your thoughts while driving, you may be surprised to arrive at your old place of work. You see, your subconscious mind had to assume control of your driving. And the habit of driving to your old place of work was stronger than the habit of driving to your new place of work.

The subconscious mind operates in the background, performing many activities all at the same time. It receives the input from your senses, interprets this input, and feeds it to your conscious mind. Thus, when you open your eyes in the morning, you ‘see’ your surroundings with no apparent effort on your part. However, your subconscious mind had to undergo a massive amount of effort before it could send its interpretation of your surroundings to the conscious mind.

Powers of the subconscious

Imagine yourself sitting in a darkened room and each hand holds a bundle of wires coming from the optic sensors at the back of your eyeballs. Each tiny wire provides you with the electrical signals from an individual optic cell.

First, you have to determine the various colors and shapes that these signals represent. Then you have to dig into your vast memory of experiences to identify what images these colors and shapes represent. You also have to bring forth any actions or emotions associated with these images. In order to accomplish this magical feat, millions of brain cells in the optical region of your brain (subconscious mind) are all working at the same time.

Then you have to describe this scene to your conscious mind. What an impossible task this must be! This is only one of the many tasks your subconscious mind has to accomplish, all at the same time.

How your beliefs affect your results in life

Now let’s get to the heart of how your subconscious mind controls your actions and possibilities in life.

Your subconscious mind uses the beliefs and other information stored in it to interpret your surroundings and the resulting dangers and possibilities. Thus, when you encounter a certain situation, your subconscious usually knows the available responses to this situation. It also knows the likely result from choosing one of these options. In addition, it knows from your past feelings about these responses whether they are favorable or unfavorable. Thus, your subconscious mind acts like a guardian to a child. It acts to interpret your surroundings, keep you out of trouble, and limit your likely responses.

One of the most important facts to understand is that all this important work by your subconscious mind is going on without the knowledge of your conscious mind. What to you seems so effortless requires massive effort by your subconscious mind. All this work has to be hidden from your conscious mind or it (you) would be overwhelmed and unable to function.

The downside of this separation from your subconscious mind is that you probably don’t realize the nature of your hidden beliefs and their affect on your actions and expectations. If your subconscious mind is guided mostly by empowering beliefs, no problem. However, if limiting beliefs control your life, you have a big problem.

Harmful effects of limiting beliefs

Limiting beliefs restrict your actions and possibilities in life. These limiting beliefs were developed during your childhood when they protected you. However, as you grow into adulthood your past feelings (your beliefs as to how to respond to life) may no longer reflect your current abilities and possibilities. What may have posed a danger to you as a child may not harm you as an adult. You may wonder, doesn’t your subconscious mind realize that things have changed? No, not necessarily. All it knows is what events and circumstances you have experienced, and your feelings about these events and circumstances. As far as your subconscious mind knows, your feelings (your beliefs) are all that matters. For example, if you have been afraid to speak in front of groups (because you might be ridiculed), that is your reality until you decide to change it. You change it either by taking action (joining a Toast Masters group), or by implanting new beliefs into your subconscious mind and then acting on them.

Here is the payoff. If you want to improve your life, you may have to overcome any limiting beliefs that are blocking your efforts. You can implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind to overcome the adverse influence of limiting beliefs. Then you will be free to pursue your new possibilities as an adult.

How to Improve Your Life

Are you worried about your future? The answer to your problems is to take some appropriate actions to make things better. However, I don’t recommend that you make some rash decision. Instead, take the time to decide what you want from life. Then start doing something about it.

Possible steps to improving your life:

  • Decide what you want from life and set meaningful goals to achieve the desired results.
  • Overcome any blocking forces that are keeping you from trying to improve your life.
  • Plan the action steps needed to achieve your current goal, take decisive action, and monitor your results.
  • Resolve any problems you encounter.
  • Review the end results and make any needed corrections.

Taking the first steps

How do you decide what you want from life? I suggest that you consider your natural talents and/or your true desires. What activities give you the most pleasure? Have you spent any time daydreaming about what you might want to do in life? What hobbies do you have? How do you spend your time when you can do whatever you want? These questions might help you decide on your goals for life. These goals should be both achievable and desirable.

Overcoming any roadblocks

You may have to overcome some blocking forces before trying for your goals. Perhaps you have acquired certain limiting beliefs in life. When you were a child, your parents or others may have warned you against doing things that might get you into trouble. Maybe they didn’t want you to be disappointed or ridiculed. Now you may want to try for things that are slightly beyond your current abilities. First, you may want to implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind

You can go to this chapter in my website to review three simple methods for implanting new beliefs into your subconscious mind. These empowering beliefs will help you overcome the blocking forces that may keep you from trying for a better life.

Planning your action steps

The next step is to plan how to achieve your current goal. You may have to do some research to see how other people have achieved similar goals. You can learn from the trials and errors of other people. People who have achieved success were not always successful. Find out how they were able to overcome their problems. This will let you plan the action steps needed to achieve your goal in the most efficient manner. Then start taking action. Monitor your results to detect any errors that may occur.

Resolve any problems

Don’t ignore any problems you encounter. The sooner you face any problems and fix them the easier it will be to achieve your goal. You may want to do more research to find out how other people overcame the same kind of problems. As you face problems and overcome them, you are gaining valuable experience. This experience will help you achieve goals that are more difficult.

Review your results

After you have achieved your current goal, take time to review the end results. Are you satisfied with the results? If not, what did you fail to achieve? See if you can take corrective action to achieve the desired results. Normally you want to achieve at least two things from a goal. First, you want the desired end results. Second, you want to have additional benefits — increased abilities, more confidence, and valuable experience.

Achieving success

This method should help you overcome your worries and improve your life. If you don’t achieve success at first, go back and try again.

 

My First Message

are  you alone?

Do you seem to be all alone in this world? If you feel trapped in your present circumstances, don’t despair. This blog, and the other resources described below, can expand your possibilities. You can start by making small improvements. Then as your abilities, confidence, and resources increase, you can raise your sights. Eventually, you may be able to start living your dreams.

My philosophy about life

This opening message to my blog describes my philosophy on how to improve your life. This philosophy is based on my own experiences of how I began achieving my dreams for my retirement years. This was a result of receiving and validating a series of revelations from the universe. One of the central revelations I received was that reality and beliefs are not the same. I’m not talking about the big reality of how the universe was made or the purpose of human life. I’m talking about the personal reality of what is desirable and possible for you to accomplish in life.

Your beliefs determine your success in life

Your success in life may be hindered by various limiting beliefs that you acquired over your life. You see, your subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between reality and strongly held beliefs. If your current beliefs do not reflect your true desires, natural talents, and actual possibilities—you probably are not going to have an enjoyable life. This is a situation where limiting beliefs are in control of your subconscious mind.

How do you know if you have limiting beliefs? After all, your beliefs are kept locked away in your subconscious mind. You may not even be aware of your current beliefs. Yet these beliefs to a great degree control what you experience and accomplish in life. They have manifested your current situation in life. Look around you. If you are not happy with what you see, you probably have limiting beliefs. The solution to this problem is to replace your limiting beliefs with empowering beliefs. There are various techniques you can use to implant new beliefs into your subconscious mind. Go to this chapter in my website to review three simple methods.

Quite often, when people are dissatisfied with their current circumstances in life they may believe that more money will solve all their problems. However, it is common to read about movie stars, professional athletes, business executives, etc. who have lots of money and yet are unhappy in life. So I say forget about money for now. Instead, concentrate on replacing your limiting beliefs with empowering beliefs. Then you can devote your life to achieving your true desires and using your natural talents. Moreover, I believe this will make you much happier in life.
