Magic Success Secrets to improve your life

Keep Your Job by Becoming Indispensable

During these hard times, many people are worried about losing their jobs. The way to solve this problem is to become indispensable to your employer or supervisor. (Then they will have to worry about their own survival and they dare not fire you.) This posting shows you how to accomplish this feat.

Why you may need to make changes

If you want to become indispensable to your employer or supervisor, you may have to change some of your attitudes and habits. Many people resist making changes but in these times making needed changes is a survival tool.

You want your employer or supervisor to know that you are willing to make changes that will help the company survive these hard times. You want to become known as a company man or woman.

What changes are needed?

The best way to find out what changes you need to make is to ask your employer or supervisor. Here are some possible questions:

  • How can you become more valuable to them?
  • Do you need any training to improve your abilities?
  • What problems do they have that you can help solve?
  • Which of your attitudes and habits do they admire the most?
  • Which of your attitudes and habits do they admire the least?

After you have the answers to the above questions, you will know what changes you need to make to become indispensable.

How to make the needed changes

You developed your attitudes and habits over the years. You accepted certain beliefs, the beliefs determined your attitudes, your attitudes guided your actions, and repeated actions became habits. These beliefs, attitudes, and habits all reside in your subconscious mind. In order to change them you need to develop new beliefs. In order to accelerate this normal process these new beliefs should be empowering beliefs.

These empowering beliefs will override your existing beliefs, attitudes, and habits. They will change your attitudes and guide your actions. Eventually you will develop new habits. However, since these empowering beliefs will now guide your actions, the old habits will be ignored.

Using visualizations

You can implant new beliefs into your subconscious mind using visualizations. A visualization is a guided daydream. You decide what is to happen and then you see it played out inside your mind. As this daydream unfolds, allow yourself to feel the excitement and pleasure of your new capability. The repetition of this visualization, along with your intense feelings, helps condition your subconscious mind to accept this new reality.

You first need to create a scene to use for the visualization. This scene should show you using your new capability to attain some desirable achievement. The more details and intense feelings you can think of the better. You probably should write the scene down on a piece of paper so you can study and remember it.

Example scene showing you as assertive:

You are discussing a business problem with your co-workers. There is one person who always tries to hog the conversation and impose his opinions on everyone else. As he drones on incessantly, you interrupt him to calmly express your own opinions. He disagrees with you, but you back up your assertions with indisputable facts. He slowly gives in. Most of your co-workers smile at you to show their appreciation.

Doing the visualization:

Close your eyes and go into the visualization.See the actions, feel the emotions. Let yourself laugh or smile if appropriate.

Continue with this visualization for several minutes.

Repeat this visualization three times a day for two weeks. Then use it once a day until the idea of having this new capability feels normal.

Conclusion

You can change your attitude about life by implanting empowering beliefs using visualizations. Try it. You might like the results.

Ways to Empower Your Life

You may have noticed the growing income disparity between the super rich, the rich, and the middle class in the United States. Also, it has become apparent that getting a college education is no longer a guarantee of earning a good living. It seems the usual aids to advancement no longer exist for ordinary people. So you may wonder what you can do to improve your life. This posting provides one answer.

The key factors to success

I believe there are two kinds of factors that determine a person’s ability to be successful in life. These are key factors and common factors.

Most of the key factors (summarized below) were contained in the magical revelations I received from the universe. I developed the other key factors while discovering how to use my subconscious mind to solve problems. These key factors allow an ordinary person to change their outlook on life and develop the personal powers needed to overcome obstacles and achieve their goals.

The common factors are the ones described in most success and self-help books, courses, and seminars. These common factors are such things as ambition, hard work, mastermind groups, persistence, setting meaningful goals, and so on. These common factors can be very useful in improving your life. However, I believe you first need to apply the key factors to get the most benefit from these common factors.

Here are the key factors:

  • The beliefs hidden away in your subconscious mind greatly influence your results in life.
  • These beliefs may not reflect your current abilities or true desires.
  • Empowering beliefs encourage you to become successful.
  • Limiting beliefs discourage you from becoming successful.
  • You can overcome the harmful effect of limiting beliefs by implanting empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind.
  • You are personally responsible for your own success or failure in life. Don’t let other people or adverse circumstances defeat you. Take charge of your own life.
  • You can use your subconscious mind to solve problems, make decisions, and improve your work.
  • You can use your subconscious mind to give you special powers.
  • Your subconscious mind, properly trained, can become your best friend.

How people can become empowered

I believe that people become empowered by experiencing special circumstances that will lead them to seek out and achieve meaningful challenges or goals. Here is my list of special circumstances:

  • They may have been raised by a rich family that provided them with an exclusive education, contacts with people in similar circumstances, and a strong feeling of entitlement.
  • They may have been raised in a supportive family that gave them ambition and self-confidence.
  • They may have been placed in a position of power, which forced them to overcome various challenges.
  • They may have survived a life-threatening situation, which made them realize their innate powers.
  • At some time in their lives, they may have had a driving ambition to achieve a difficult goal.
  • At some point in their lives, they may have been encouraged by a friend, colleague, or mentor to begin improving their life.

I believe that all of the above circumstances and the subsequent successes can instill empowering beliefs into a person’s subconscious mind. I also believe that successful people may not be aware of these empowering beliefs hidden away in their subconscious minds.

Finally, I believe that the direct method of implanting empowering beliefs into the subconscious mind may be the best way for ordinary people to improve their lives.

How I empowered my life

When I was approaching retirement age, I was worried about my future. I had spent most of my adult life stuck in a lackluster career in public accounting. I had gradually lost most of my ambition, energy, and self-confidence. Most people would say that I was just lazy. I recall one Christmas gift from the office when they gave me an alarm clock. It was a well-deserved gift because I often was late coming in to work.

Toward the end of my career, I became convinced that the US would be facing hard times because of the growing public debt. This belief led me to start work on a website to help people during the hard times I expected. However, I kept running into roadblocks and going around in circles. It appeared that I lacked the energy and writing skills needed to complete this project.

Because of receiving two previous gifts, I asked the universe for help. It took about a year for the revelations to arrive and for me to understand them. However, even after receiving these magical revelations, I failed to put them into action. It seemed I was doomed to live out a dreary and unproductive retirement. Then I received a third gift from the universe – a surge of energy that came to me one morning. This led me to redouble my work on the website, and to start testing and using the insights from the magical revelations.

I created a visualization to give myself a burst of energy whenever I needed it. Also, I implanted empowering beliefs into my subconscious mind. These methods turned my life around and allowed me to complete my website. Later on, I was able to write several self-help ebooks. It was thrilling to experience my new abilities.

So I ask you, if a person as lazy and pitiful as I was could improve his life, could you do the same? I believe you could. However, you would have to have an open mind and a strong desire to improve your life. Of course, I can’t offer any guarantees of success. All I can offer are the insights and methods I developed while training and empowering my subconscious mind.

Taking the next steps

As a first step, you can decide to try empowering your own life. As the next step, you might want to try starting a sideline business. For further information about taking these steps, you can study the resources below:

  • Review the other postings to this blog and read those articles that appeal to you.
  • Review the contents of my website and read those subjects that interest you. Go to the above My Website page.
  • Review the descriptions of my low-cost ebooks and purchase any that might help you. Go to the above My Kindle Books page.

Conclusion

During these hard times, I believe that you will have to rely mostly on yourself, your family, your neighbors, and your friends. You may want to form a support group with people  you can trust in emergencies.

This posting can help you take the required actions. However, there is no guarantee that my information will lead to success. You have to accept responsibility for your own success or failure in life.

Make Money With Your Pickup or Van

During these hard times, you may want to start your own sideline business. This posting describes a venture that uses your vehicle to help perform handyman type services. You may already have the needed handyman experience. If not, you can learn what you need to know by studying handyman manuals and/or learning while doing the work.

Let’s say you already have most of the required equipment and supplies. Then you can start in business as soon as you satisfy all the governmental and insurance requirements.

Initial requirements

You need the following:

  • Pickup truck or van, and a home telephone
  • Basic handyman equipment and supplies (see business ideas below for items needed)
  • Basic office and accounting supplies, including job bid forms
  • Basic protective gear, such as long sleeve work shirts, heavy-duty gloves, and boots
  • Need to be in good health and enjoy physical activity
  • Need to determine and satisfy any governmental and insurance requirements
  • Need to determine location of local dump sites, fees charged for dumping, restrictions on materials allowed to be dumped, and rules for hauling trash

Subsequent requirements

After you have started making a cash profit in your small business, you may want to add some of the following:

  • Business telephone
  • Home office
  • Computerized accounting system
  • Additional handyman equipment
  • Additional workers (contract labor, not employees)

General guidelines

Getting these jobs usually is just a question of becoming known to potential customers, being qualified to do the work, and quoting the right price for the job.

Keep your startup and operating expenses to a bare minimum. You want to start showing a cash profit as soon as possible.

Don’t meet with customers in your home. The increased traffic may upset your neighbors and violate zoning rules.

Solicit customers by placing classified advertising in your local newspaper or the craigslist.org website for the nearest city. Describe the services you are offering in plain language. Include a telephone number or e-mail address where customers can reach you. You may also want to include a tentative hourly rate for your services.

Common job procedures

When discussing a job with a customer, you need the following questions answered:

  • Are you willing and able to provide the desired service?
  • Will you need to bring a helper?
  • Can you and the customer agree on an hourly rate or a fixed fee for the job?
  • When and where will the job be performed?

Note: If this is a large or difficult job, you probably want to inspect the job location before quoting an hourly rate or a fixed fee for the job.

If you need to purchase any materials for the job, the customer should pay for this upfront. Any cost of materials will be in addition to your bid for labor, vehicle and equipment expenses, and minor items such as dump fees and job supplies. Note: If you need specialized equipment for a job, it’s better to borrow or rent instead of purchasing it.

You need to agree with the customer on the various details of the service required. For example, are there any extra services that the customer desires or expects? Be very specific when determining and recording  the type and amount of work to be performed. Don’t make any assumptions. You don’t want to argue over being paid because the customer is not satisfied with your services. To avoid arguments, write down all important details on a standard job bid form. Then both you and the customer should sign it.

After completing the job, gather up your tools and equipment. Tidy up any areas that need it. Collect your agreed upon fee from the customer. Haul away any trash or discarded items.

Business Idea 1 – Clearing out basements and garages

Homeowners or tenants pay you to remove trash and other unwanted items from their basements and/or garages. (As a related activity, you could make money by refurbishing and selling some of the items you haul away.)

Upon arriving at the job site, you should have the customer indicate which items are to be hauled away. In addition, determine if any retained items should be moved to a different location. You might want to use a pad of sticky notes to write down any instructions. Place each note on the affected item.

Carry the trash out and put in your vehicle. Use a wide shovel to put small items into trash bags for easier handling. Perform any additional services required or that seem appropriate. (An example would be knocking down any cobwebs and sweeping up the floor.)

Business Idea 2 – Doing seasonal jobs

Homeowners or tenants pay you to do various types of seasonal jobs. These jobs could include the following:

  • Cleaning out rain gutters
  • Clearing ice and snow off doorsteps, sidewalks, and driveways
  • Cultivating gardens
  • Digging up a plot of ground or lawn for a garden
  • Mowing lawns
  • Pruning shrubs and small trees
  • Raking leaves
  • Removing weeds

Upon arriving at the job site, you need the customer to point out the various locations to be worked on, what work needs to be done, and how this work should be done. For example, when clearing snow and ice off sidewalks, where should the snow and ice be placed? When cultivating gardens, what plants are considered to be weeds? When pruning shrubs and small trees, how far back should the limbs be cut off? When raking leaves, should they be placed in leaf bags or just a big pile? When removing weeds, are there any other plants mixed in with the weeds that should be protected?

After performing your work, place any rubbish in your vehicle. Use a wide shovel to put small items into trash bags for easier handling. Perform any additional services required or that seem appropriate. (An example would be smoothing out the ground or sweeping off the sidewalk.)

Business Idea 3 – Washing windows

Washing windows is an easy way to make money. Your main problem is getting customers. You can wash windows for homes or business buildings. You should try to sign up business owners for a long-term contract. You might offer them a free washing job to show how worthwhile (and perhaps inexpensive) your services are.

Upon arriving at the job site, have the customer show you the outside (and any inside) windows to be washed.

If there are any hardened lumps of mud or some other substance on a window surface, you will have to remove them with a plastic scraper before washing the window.

Mix a suitable window cleaning solution in a pail of water. Use a combination cleaning sponge and squeegee (or other professional tools) on a long handle. After washing the window, remove the residual cleaning solution with the squeegee. Wipe the squeegee blade with a lint-free rag after every pass.

Perform any additional services required or that seem appropriate. (An example would be cleaning up any water spills and wiping off the windowsill with a lint-free rag.)

Business Idea 4 – Working as a “slave” for a day

This idea has a clever twist, which is offering to be a “slave” for a day. This means that you offer to do almost any task that the customer desires. For example, you could do any of the tasks shown above. Other tasks might include cleaning up an attic, disposing of outside trash, fixing damaged or sagging doors, moving furniture, and repairing and/or painting damaged walls.

You may be able to get a write up in a local newspaper because of the unusual nature of your services.

Upon arriving at the job site, have the customer describe the various tasks desired. However, you want to avoid any dangerous tasks. You don’t want to accept any job that might result in being injured.

Complete all the tasks that you can perform safely. Perform any additional services required or that seem appropriate. (See above business ideas for examples.)

Conclusion

There are always tasks available that people are willing to pay to have done. You could be the one to make this kind of money. You might want to first inquire around your neighborhood or advertise on Craigslist to see if there are any opportunities available that suit you.

You can review my information sites or Kindle books for ways to acquire the personal ambition and other resources needed.

Opportunities for a Quick Fix

Many people want a quick fix for their problems or lack of success. However, a quick fix can prove to be elusive or even dangerous. The desire for instant gratification leads many people to disaster. They become ready victims for con artists and other problems.

This posting describes those limited areas that can have a quick fix. In addition, it shows how to start enjoying your life before you achieve the level of success that you want.

Areas available for a quick fix

Let us assume that you want to start your own small business to achieve financial success. There are certain ways that you can speed up this process and overcome common obstacles. These specific areas can have a quick fix. However, you must be careful and understands the limitations of the methods used to achieve a quick fix. Following are some of these methods:

Using bootstrap methods – You usually need at least a small amount of money or other resources to start a small business. However, you can use various bootstrap methods to minimize or eliminate the amount of money or other resources needed. Here are some examples:

  • Don’t pay someone else to perform a task. Learn how to do the work yourself.
  • Don’t purchase new equipment needed for a job. Instead, borrow or rent the equipment.
  • When first starting out, don’t purchase the materials needed for a job. Instead, have the customer purchase the materials.

Using empowering beliefs – A common obstacle to achieving success is the presence of limiting beliefs in your subconscious mind. These limiting beliefs can keep you from trying to start your own small business. Examples of limiting beliefs are the warnings you receive when you are growing up:

  • Don’t try to be something that you’re not
  • Don’t rock the boat
  • You will never amount to much

You can overcome these limiting beliefs by implanting empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. Here are some examples of empowering beliefs:

  • I control my own destiny
  • I am ambitious and hard working
  • I am successful at whatever I do

These empowering beliefs allow you to take action to improve your life.

Start enjoying your life immediately

If you are unhappy with your present situation in life, you can develop the habit of enjoying life just as you are. You see, you can decide every day whether you are going to be happy or unhappy. As you keep making the choice of enjoying your life just as you are, this decision becomes a habit.

As part of this decision, find ways to enjoy those things that you already have. You can go on walks, talk to your friends and family, help your children learn about life, and remember those good times you have experienced.

Developing your abilities and resources

After you have eliminated obstacles to taking action, you can start enhancing your abilities and resources. Perhaps you should discover your natural talents and true desires. Then you can choose goals to exploit these talents and achieve these desires. This will allow you to enjoy the journey and not just the destination.

Then you won’t need a quick fix to attain the desired destination. The journey itself becomes part of achieving a better life.

Setting incremental goals

Depending on what kind of success you want to attain, the best method is to start with easily attainable goals. As you achieve these early goals and thereby enhance your abilities and resources, you can try for more empowering goals. Each new success builds on the previous successes.

Eventually, you may be able to attain the level of success that you desire. On the other hand, you may choose to stay at a certain level of success and enjoy your life as it is.

Conclusion

You don’t need to be in a hurry to get what you want out of life. Enjoy what you already have. Focus on your natural talents and true desires. Most important, avoid any con artist who promises you the moon.

As always, you can use my information resources to help you achieve success.

How to Achieve Success

If you want to achieve success in life, this post may help you. My definition of success is setting and attaining meaningful goals. By meaningful goals, I mean activities and events that benefit you and other people.

Following are common obstacles to success and ways to overcome them.

Lack of desire for improvement

When you were a child, it was common for your parents and other adults to warn you about possible dangers. These repeated warnings may still reside within your subconscious mind as limiting beliefs. These limiting (false) beliefs may prevent you from taking action to improve your life. They may even prevent you from wanting to improve your life.

To overcome this obstacle, you may need to implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. For example, you need to believe that you are entitled to a better life and that you are capable of achieving it.

Lack of meaningful goals

The next obstacle is not knowing what to do with your life. You may not enjoy your present circumstances. However, you may not know what alternatives are available. Perhaps you should discover your natural talents and true desires. Then you can use goals to create a future that uses your natural talents and satisfies your true desires.

If we encounter the hard times that I am expecting, many people will need inexpensive ways to survive. Perhaps you could supply some of these needs. The basic needs are clothing, food, housing, employment, medical care, entertainment, and so on.

Lack of research and planning

After choosing a suitable and attainable goal, you may want to research the best ways to achieve this goal. You need to find out what abilities and resources are needed. You need to find out the best way to accomplish the goal.

Then you can plan how to acquire these abilities and resources. In addition, you can plan the action steps needed to accomplish the goal.

Lack of abilities and resources

In this step, you should acquire any needed abilities and/or resources. (Note: When setting your first few goals, they should require only those abilities and resources that you already have or can easily obtain.)

You acquire abilities by first getting any needed information. Then you use trial and error to accomplish various tasks.

You acquire any needed cash or other resources by first eliminating any unnecessary personal expenses. Then you could use various bootstrap methods to acquire resources. You also could get a loan, get a silent partner, or do some jobs on the side to raise money.

Lack of decisive actions

At this stage, you are ready to use decisive actions to achieve your goals. You already should have planned the needed action steps. Now you should follow your plan and take the needed actions, step-by-step. You may require an action trigger on occasion to keep working. You might want to use time-saving tips. In addition, you should monitor the results you are achieving toward your goal

Failure to face and overcome problems

When striving toward a worthwhile goal, you are likely to encounter problems. Most problems won’t go away by themselves. You should face any problems, accept personal responsibility for your success or failure, and do whatever it takes to solve the problems.

You may have to do some additional research to find out how other people have solved the same type of problems.

Not achieving the desired results

After you have accomplished your goal, you should verify that the results would help you to a better life. Most goals have two desirable results. First, they should increase your abilities and resources. Second, they should improve the quality of your life.

If your goal has not given you the desired results, you have two possibilities. One option is to go back and do what is needed to give you the desired results. The other option is to accept the results. However, you then should use these inadequate results to plan better goals in the future.

Conclusion

I hope this brief roadmap will help you achieve the kind of success you want. As always, you can study the other information resources that I provide.

Surviving in Hard Times

As the US economy declines to lower levels, some people are going to start asking themselves what they can do to survive. This post explains one possible strategy.

The true state of affairs

When facing a difficult situation, the first step is to discover the true state of affairs. It appears that the authorities have chosen to sugarcoat the facts. One way to discover the actual conditions in the US economy is to visit the Shadow Stats website. There you can review statistics calculated as they were in the past. The truth is that economic growth, inflation, and unemployment are far worse than officially reported.

Available opportunities

Now that we know the deplorable facts – what can we do to survive the hard times until things improve? We can search for available opportunities that we can exploit. Regardless of how bad things get, there are always people willing to pay to get their needs and desires satisfied. Even if people lack money, they can exchange services or other resources with each other. There is always something that people can do to improve their situation in life.

Preparing yourself

Here is where my own experiences come into play. I was able to improve my situation in life by using my subconscious mind in several different ways:

  • I trained my subconscious mind to solve my problems.
  • I tricked my subconscious mind into believing that I had new powers.
  • I convinced my subconscious mind that I was entitled to a better life.

These methods allowed me to achieve the initial goals for my retirement. Because of my new attitudes and beliefs, I was able to accept responsibility for my own successes and failures in life. I looked back over my past actions and realized that I was solely responsible for my shortcomings. But now, thanks to the power of my subconscious mind,  I can improve my life. I just need to decide what goals to pursue and what attitudes and beliefs they require.

Taking action

The first step in taking action is to assume control of your own life. Decide what you want from life and start using your subconscious mind to increase your personal powers. Then you can seek out an opportunity that you can exploit. Start with those simple goals you can accomplish right now. As you gain more experience and enhanced abilities, try for larger goals. Be willing to make mistakes and solve your own problems. Use trial and error to gain the needed experience.

Conclusion

I am no one special. I believe that you can achieve your goals by using the same methods that let me achieve my goals. For more information, you can review my prior posts, study my website, and perhaps purchase one or more of my Kindle books. Good luck in your future.

Is a College Education Worth the Money?

Many college students have taken on large loans only to discover that they can’t find work after they graduate. Therefore, I wonder if a college education is really worth the money in all cases.

Excessive college costs

The availability of student loans has allowed colleges to keep on raising their tuition costs. This increase in the demand for a college education has overwhelmed the supply. The natural result is an increase in the price of a college education. However, this continuing increase in tuition costs may not be accompanied by any increase in the value of the education.

Is a college education really necessary?

There are certain careers that require a college degree. These are the traditional professions like accountants, doctors, lawyers, nurses, and teachers. However, many occupations or professions don’t require a college degree. For example, you don’t need a degree to start your own small business. You don’t need a degree to become an inventor or create a new type of online business. You don’t need a degree to become a cook, drive a taxi, or operate a computer. You don’t need a degree to provide various types of online services.

Many people have started out at a low-level job in a company and worked their way up simply by being able to get the work done. There are many positions in a company that require suitable experience, rather than a college degree.

You may start working at a small business and then purchase the business when the owner retires. You can use the income from the business to help you pay the purchase price.

Alternatives to college education

Trade schools provide valuable training at much less expense than most colleges. Some trades provide an apprenticeship program where workers receive on-the-job training. You may be able to find colleges that provide online education at a lower cost than the traditional on-site education.

Conclusion

Before parents or students decide to burden themselves with a large education loan, perhaps they should explore some of the alternatives to an expensive college education. They could look around at some of the opportunities available and decide how to become qualified for those opportunities. They may discover that a college education is not required.

Changing Your Life

Are you tired of a boring life? Are you worried about the future? This post describes how to start making changes to your life. This description uses my own experiences as an example.

Comparing our lives

I don’t know how my experiences in changing my life will compare to your experiences. For one thing, I was retired when I started making the changes. Thus, I didn’t much care if I made a complete mess of things. On the other hand, I was starting from a very low state of affairs. By the time I retired, I had lost most of my ambition, energy, and self-confidence. Just bringing my life back up to a normal situation would be a great improvement.

At any rate, reading about my experiences may help you decide whether to try making changes to your own life.

My goals and limitations

As my retirement date approached, I started working on a website to help people. I was hearing from many reliable commentators that the US government was accumulating too much debt. This would lead to hard times in the future. So, I wanted to do something to help people during the coming bad conditions. However, I was having difficulties with this project. My writing talents weren’t up to the challenge. I kept making mistakes and going around in circles.

My first goal for retirement was to reorganize, improve, and complete my website. However, I would first need to enhance my writing abilities. After those two projects, I wanted to write some self-help books. I wanted to help people because I had been selfish most of my life.

Although I had written many business letters during my public accounting career, my writing always took too long to plan and write. In addition, my letters often needed corrections. So, I was facing a big challenge in having to write extensive content for my website and self-help books.

Self-empowerment methods

Before my retirement, I had discovered how to use my subconscious mind to help me solve certain problems. I also had used affirmations to give myself a few desirable attitudes. However, I never considered using these methods to help overhaul my life. I lacked the ambition and self-confidence needed to make such large improvements.

Then I received some powerful revelations from the universe. This is explained in the Receiving My Revelations post. The insights from these revelations showed me how to replace the limiting beliefs in my subconscious mind with empowering beliefs. I finally knew how to improve my life and achieve my goals. However, I lacked the personal drive to tackle such large projects.

Then, a miracle happened. When I got up one morning, I received a jolt of energy. This energy jolt allowed me to start working vigorously on my website for a while. I assumed that this energy jolt was another temporary gift from the universe. So, I created a visualization to give myself a burst of energy whenever needed.

Improving my abilities

With my renewed drive, I started working on the website in earnest. I began using my subconscious mind to improve my writing. I had noticed in the past that sometimes solutions to my problems would just pop into my conscious mind for no apparent reason. I knew that the subconscious mind has fantastic abilities. So it must have been the source for these solutions. I decided to try using these abilities to improve my writing.

This is the method I developed:

  1. Review the defective writing for several minutes.
  2. Expect my subconscious mind to improve this writing.
  3. Don’t be concerned with this problem anymore.
  4. Go to sleep to allow my subconscious mind to consider my writing problem.
  5. When my subconscious mind pops a possible solution into my conscious mind during the next day or so, use it to improve my writing.

With this method, I would just write something, anything, about my current topic. Then I would expect my subconscious mind to improve the writing. This procedure usually worked like a charm.

Wow! My new approach saved a lot of time. I didn’t have to spend all that time in planning what to write and worrying about how to fix my mistakes. This vast improvement in my writing ability helped to restore my ambition and self-confidence. I knew what I wanted to achieve with my writing. And I believed in the ability of my subconscious mind to help me get the work done.

After improving my writing ability, I decided to try supercharging my personal powers. I implanted empowering beliefs into my subconscious mind to offset the adverse effect of the limiting beliefs that it held. The result was fantastic! I felt that I could do almost anything now. However, this was not quite true. All I had accomplished was to remove the roadblocks to taking action. Next, I had to actually take action and accomplish the desired results.

Enhancing your experiences

I believe that you need to enhance your experiences to achieve a better life. It isn’t enough merely to wish for better things in life. First, you have to remove the roadblocks to taking action. Then, you must actually take action and get results. After you achieve success at a certain level, you can try for a higher level of success. You can decide how high you want to climb. But in order to achieve success, you need the experiences derived from taking action and getting the desired result.

Consider what happens to people who win large lottery prizes. You can read or hear about people who can’t handle their newfound wealth. They don’t have the experience of dealing with large amounts of money. They often make foolish mistakes and lose all their prize money. They even may become worse off than before they won the lottery. The problem is their lack of experience with large amounts of money.

Conclusion

So if you want to improve your life, don’t just wish for something good to happen. You need to start making things happen. You need the experience of making mistakes and then correcting them. Your enhanced experiences will allow you to achieve your goals and improve your life.

Conquering the Roadblocks to Success

This posting identifies four types of roadblocks to success and shows how to conquer them.

Limiting beliefs

This blocking force has been discussed many times in this blog. The main problem with this roadblock is that people aren’t aware of their limiting beliefs and so they don’t take steps to eliminate them.

An easy way to determine if you have limiting beliefs is to study your situation in life. If you aren’t happy with your present situation but aren’t making any effort to improve things, you probably are burdened with limiting beliefs. This is especially the case if you don’t believe that you are entitled to have a better life.

The way to solve this problem is to implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. You need to look at the goals you want to accomplish and decide what abilities or attitudes you will need to achieve these goals.

The final step is to implant these empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. You can go to this chapter in my website to review three simple ways of gaining new beliefs.

Failure to face and solve problems

The main reason that people don’t face their problems is that they don’t know how to solve them. I have used two methods to solve my own problems.

One method is to research the Internet or other sources of information to see how other people have solved the same type of problem. If you have access to the Internet, it is the easiest way to search for solutions to the type of problem that you have. You can use the following search term: how do I [describe your goal or problem]? Examples:

  • how do I start a small business?
  • how do I fix a plumbing problem?

Another method is to train your subconscious mind to help you solve problems. This method was described in my Yes, I Can !! posting. Your subconscious mind has access to an immense storehouse of information. It should be able to help you solve many types of problems.

Failure to take action

Unless you start taking action to get what you want, you will never achieve your objective. You learn new abilities by trial and error. You should expect to make mistakes. As you find out what doesn’t work, you are getting closer to what does work. You can shorten the learning curve by using the same kind of research as used to conquer the above roadblock.

However, the key to overcoming this roadblock is simply to start taking action. Of course, you want to avoid dangerous situations. In addition, you want to start with goals that are easy to achieve. As you gain more experience, you can try to achieve larger goals. Each success at one level paves the way for success at a higher level.

Other common obstacles

There are other common obstacles, such as a habit of procrastination or lack of needed skills. These common obstacles and the methods that can be used to overcome them are discussed in the Overcoming Roadblocks to Action posting.

Conclusion

Now that you know how to eliminate these roadblocks to success, the next step is to decide what you want to accomplish with your life. Then you can start choosing and achieving meaningful goals. Your destiny awaits you, my friend. Good luck with your search for your heart’s desire.

Roadmap to a Better Life

Sometimes you need a roadmap to help you get to a better life. This post explains how I created a roadmap for my journey. Perhaps the roadmap described below can help you to a better life.

My desires for a roadmap

When I was growing up, I observed how some people enjoyed life and others just struggled day by day. Of course, I was right there among the strugglers. I always wondered, “What are the secrets that some people seem to have? Why do so many people have to struggle to get through life?”

I yearned for some instructions that would show me the way. What goal should I try for? What are the next steps? How can I solve my problems? How can I get the tough jobs done? Well, I never found the instructions. Of course, I read self-help books. They explained what steps to take and/or what traits or habits were needed to be successful. However, they didn’t show me how to overcome my laziness. They also didn’t delve into what I considered the ultimate secrets to success.

Design for a roadmap

As I was nearing retirement, I renewed my desire for a roadmap to success. I wanted a roadmap with two main features. The first feature would be just a list of procedures to achieve any type of goal. Since I might try to achieve different types of goals, I wanted to include procedures that would cover any possibility. Some of these procedures would be used on every goal and other procedures would be used only for a certain type of goal. These procedures would be placed into various groups  and the groups would be placed in the proper sequence for achieving a goal.

The second feature would be a series of special methods that could be used to overcome various types of obstacles to achieving goals. For example, there might be reasons why I would fail to start taking action on a project. I would also need help in solving the various problems that might arise while working toward a goal.

I believed that this type of roadmap would be able to help me improve my life and achieve my dreams for retirement.

I made some progress with the first feature of this roadmap while I was still working. The second feature of this roadmap still eluded me.

Creating the roadmap

Then one day, in my golden years, I asked the universe for help in my quest for answers. Some time later, I started to receive revelations about the true nature of life and reality. These revelations were both simple and shocking! Once I had received and studied them, they seemed so obvious. Yet, the truth was rather brutal. They informed me that my disappointments in life were my own fault! I had the wrong attitudes about life and reality. My limiting beliefs had done me in. They needlessly restricted my actions. Yet I needed some type of beliefs to guide my life. Without them, I wouldn’t know what to do.

As I received more revelations, the mystery cleared up. Beliefs may not reflect reality. They simply form a framework that lets your subconscious mind attempt to interpret reality. You can change your beliefs. Moreover, as you enhance your beliefs, your opportunities magically expand. The artificial barriers to action fade away. What before had seemed impossible can become possible.

These revelations helped me overcome the main obstacle to achieving my goals for retirement. Finally, I knew the ultimate secrets to success. After implanting empowering beliefs into my subconscious mind, I became supercharged with new powers. I was finally able to reorganize, improve, and complete my website.

Conclusion

This roadmap has helped me achieve my initial goals for retirement. I hope it can help you achieve your goals for a better life. You can read the details in my Magic Success Secrets ebook.
