The Problem Keeping You From Success

My goal with this blog has been to help people solve this problem. The problem is that you may not be willing to make the changes that will help improve your life. Part of this problem is the matter of beliefs. You may not believe in my revelations. You may not acknowledge to yourself that limiting beliefs in your subconscious mind are keeping you from having a better life. You may not be willing to implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. You may not believe that you are entitled to a better life.

I had all of these same obstacles to success. I was only able to overcome them out of desperation to improve my life in retirement. So if you can’t overcome these obstacles, I understand. No one can force you to make the needed changes. It is all up to you.

I have attacked this problem from many sides in prior posts to this blog. I want this post to be my final attack on the problem. Then I will have occasional posts on current economic problems and how to reduce their impact on your life.

By reading about the powers of the subconscious mind, my magical revelations from the universe, and the struggles to improve my life, you may be encouraged to try improving your own life. But then again, maybe not.

In any case, I don’t see any point in continuing to rehash the same concepts repeatedly. So this will be my final post on this subject.

How the subconscious mind guides your life

The subconscious mind is that hidden portion of your consciousness that supports and guides your daily activities. It has to remain unseen, otherwise its tremendous power and massive activities would overwhelm your conscious mind.

The subconscious mind interprets your surroundings and beliefs, and thereby creates the reality that you experience in day-to-day living. For example, when you open your eyes in the morning, you can observe your surroundings with no apparent effort on your part. However, your subconscious mind performs a tremendous effort to accomplish this feat.

Imagine, if you can, that you are sitting in a dark room and are holding two bundles of electrical wires. These wires are the optic nerves that carry information from the optic cells at the back of your eyeballs. Using the electrical signals from your optic nerves (and the information stored in the vast memory of your subconscious mind), you must create the three-dimensional image of your surroundings that your conscious mind receives. You must also identify the objects contained in this image. Can you imagine yourself doing this? Probably not. However, this incredible miracle of seeing is just one of the many tasks that your subconscious mind must carry out every split second of every day.

Now let’s look at an even more important task that your subconscious mind must perform. It uses the assumptions, beliefs, expectations, experiences, habits, rules of thumb, and wisdom stored in its memory to determine how to perform your day-to-day activities. In addition, it must determine what activities you are capable of performing. Thus, when you are trying to accomplish something new, you may have feelings of fear or doubt about this new activity. These feelings are coming from your subconscious mind. You may have had some limiting beliefs stored away in your subconscious mind from childhood. These beliefs may make it difficult for you to attempt new activities.

On the other hand, if your subconscious mind is controlled by empowering beliefs, you may have feelings of confidence and courage when you attempt a new activity. These empowering beliefs may have developed during a supportive childhood or may have resulted from a series of your achievements earlier in life. It is also possible to directly implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind using affirmations, physical actions, or visualizations.

These empowering beliefs, and the skills and experiences you develop from completing new activities, allow you to enjoy a life of success. You may even be able to live the life of your dreams. It all depends on the choices you make and the actions you take.

Deciding what you want from life

Speaking of choices, one of the most important decisions is what to do with your life. This assumes of course that you want to take charge of your life and live life to the fullest. This decision can be difficult if you have too many limiting beliefs and lack useful skills and experiences. However, you can always overcome limiting beliefs and thereby open the door to developing new skills and experiences.

This is what I accomplished after retiring from a lackluster career in public accounting. However, I wouldn’t have been able to do this without the magical revelations that I received from the universe. These revelations showed me the way to take charge of my life and get the tough jobs done. I was able to make this change despite my lack of ambition and courage at that time.

My revelations from the universe

These revelations may shock you. They certainly shocked me when I first received them. But please don’t judge them until you read the topic that follows below them.

My magical revelations:

  • You are personally responsible for the successes and failures that you experience in life. You have the ability to improve things by taking charge of your life and assuming responsibility for your mistakes and problems.
  • Your subconscious mind uses the controlling beliefs that are hidden away inside it to help interpret your apparent situation in life and the resulting possibilities.
  • Beliefs are not the same as reality. The controlling beliefs in your subconscious mind may not reflect your actual situation in life and the resulting possibilities.
  • When limiting beliefs control your subconscious mind, you are discouraged from seeking and achieving success in life.
  • When empowering beliefs control your subconscious mind, you are encouraged to seek out challenges and achieve success in life.
  • You can change your beliefs to reflect your actual situation in life or your desires for a better life. Thus, you can use empowering beliefs to reduce the adverse effects of any limiting beliefs that are present in your subconscious mind.

I developed certain insights after discovering how my subconscious mind could help solve some of my problems. However, this happened before I received the preceding revelations. Thus, I did not make the most use out of this discovery.

Here are my insights:

  • Your subconscious mind contains a vast storehouse of knowledge and wisdom.
  • Your subconscious mind, properly trained, can help you solve problems, enhance creative work, and make difficult decisions.
  • Your subconscious mind has to be convinced you’re serious before it will help you.

I have accumulated practical knowledge from my life experiences and the self-help books I studied. This practical knowledge has helped me put my revelations and insights into action.

Here is my practical knowledge:

  • You may acquire limiting beliefs during your childhood and early adulthood. These beliefs result from the admonitions received from your parents and other people. These warnings were meant to protect you from harm.
  • Since your beliefs are hidden away inside your subconscious mind, you may not be aware of those limiting beliefs that can have an adverse effect on your life.
  • Various techniques are available to instill new beliefs into your subconscious mind. These include affirmations, physical actions, and visualizations.
  • After you overcome any limiting beliefs and/or other obstacles preventing you from starting or finishing a new or difficult project, you then must take constructive actions to complete the project.

Note: These constructive actions may include gathering any required information, making step-by-step plans, starting work on your goal, monitoring your results, correcting any problems, and reviewing the final results.

All of the above concepts, methods, and procedures are explained in my Magic Success Secrets ebook.

The problems with my revelations

The above revelations turned my life around after I finally accepted them and put them into practice. To test them out, I began to implant empowering beliefs into my subconscious mind using affirmations and visualizations. Then I began to strive for my goals. The more I was able to achieve the more I sought to increase my empowering beliefs. But first, I had to overcome the following problem.

It was difficult for me to understand and accept these revelations when I received them. These ideas seemed rather strange and somewhat threatening. Besides, who was I to receive revelations from the universe? I was a nobody, a failure. I was doomed to suffer through a meaningless retirement after my lackluster career had ended. At least, that’s what I thought to myself.

In fact, the only reason that I finally began to consider using these revelations was that they answered all my questions about the meaning of life and reality. They told me why I was such a failure. They told me why some people can be such a success.

Even then, I had to overcome one big problem. I didn’t want to change my beliefs. After all, without my beliefs I would not know what to do or what to think. My beliefs have guided me all my life.

Eventually I realized that my current beliefs haven’t helped me all that much. My results in the later years of my life had been nothing to brag about. Moreover, since my life was already at a low ebb, I didn’t have much to lose. So I decided to test these revelations.

Taking action and achieving my goals

I used affirmations and revelations to implant a few empowering beliefs into my subconscious mind. This helped me in pursuing my goals. But the big change happened one morning when I woke up and received a burst of energy from out of nowhere. This got me going and encouraged me to keep using affirmations and visualizations to increase my personal powers. After a certain point, I was able to keep working on my goals until I completed them.

My first two goals for retirement were to finish my website and publish my ebook. These goals were meant to develop my writing abilities and help other people have a better life. Now that I have completed these goals, my next challenge is to start an online business and start making some money for myself. You see, I inherited some money from my parents and lost it all. Now I want to learn to be responsible with money and start enjoying the finer things in life. So I need a fresh pot of gold to accomplish this.

Here’s hoping the readers of this blog can learn from my mistakes and successes. Then they can improve their own lives.

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.

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.

Overcoming the Reality Illusion

There could be a rainbow in your future showing the way to a better life. First though, you may have to overcome the reality illusion. This is the illusion that misrepresents what you can achieve in life. I call this an illusion because it is based on beliefs rather than reality. It is based on opinions rather than facts.

Source of the reality illusion

The reality illusion is present when the beliefs used by your subconscious mind to interpret reality do not reflect your true abilities, desires, and possibilities. You may have unknowingly acquired limiting beliefs early in life. When you were growing up you needed these limiting beliefs to protect yourself from possible dangers. These limiting beliefs are hidden away in your subconscious mind. They are not readily available to your conscious mind. About the only way to discover if you have these limiting beliefs is to review your accomplishments in life. If you are dissatisfied with your surroundings, you probably are being held back by limiting beliefs.

Overcoming the reality illusion

Most of my previous posts explain various ways to overcome the reality illusion. Each post, in its own way, demonstrates how to overcome the reality illusion and/or override your limiting beliefs. Each paragraph below has a link to the actual post, along with a short summary of the topics and/or methods discussed in that post. This lets you choose any post you want to explore.

Using Goals to Guide Your Life

Guiding your life

Goals can be very helpful in guiding your life toward your dreams. I suppose you might believe that goals aren’t very useful because many people never achieve their goals. However, part of the purpose of this blog is to help you select and achieve your goals.

This post has three main parts. First, it shows some of the benefits of  goals. Then it helps you select suitable goals. Finally, it helps you attain  your goals.

The benefits of goals

Goals have many benefits. They give direction to your life. Goals can take  you from where you are to where you want to be.

Goals can increase your self-confidence and expand your comfort zone. They  can bring new meaning to everyday life. They can help you exploit opportunities  that appear with changes in technology or the economy. They can help you get out  of a rut.

If you feel you have no future, goals can give you a future. If you have had  failures in life, that doesn’t matter. Failures only show where you lacked  suitable skills or didn’t feel excited by the activities.

Choosing meaningful goals

A goal is a statement of something to be achieved. This statement should be  clear, definite, and compelling. The goal should be both doable and desirable.  It should give you excitement and pleasure. It should be worth the effort,  expense, and risk needed to pursue it. If your goal doesn’t meet these  requirements, then you likely won’t achieve it or even attempt it.

When choosing your first few goals try for ones that you can achieve easily  and rapidly. These early successes will increase your self-confidence and  encourage you to try for goals that are more important.

To help you further in selecting worthwhile goals, here are some leading  questions to ask yourself:

  • What do I want out of life?
  • How can I put my abilities to best  use?
  • What things do I most enjoy doing?
  • What were the happiest times  in my life?
  • What accomplishments have given me the most satisfaction?
  • What goals can I accomplish with my existing capabilities and resources?

The answers to the above questions should help you in selecting goals to  improve your life.

Achieving your goals

This is the key to using goals improve your life. You actually have to  achieve them. Therefore, I am giving you two very powerful methods that will  help you achieve your goals.

1. Selecting mileposts and deadlines — If you aren’t used to achieving  goals, you probably need something to encourage you every so often. This method  uses mileposts and deadlines to remind you of what needs to be done and when it  should be completed.

A milepost is simply a way to divide a task into smaller pieces. Then you can  set a deadline to show when you should reach each milepost. As an example, here  is a simple way to divide a task into three portions.

The first portion would be all the research and other preparation work  required before actually starting the main task. This would include listing the  expected results or benefits from completing the task.

The second portion would be the main task itself. If this task has several  stages, you may choose to make the completion of each major stage into an  additional milepost.

The third portion would be any final activities required after you have  completed the main task. For example, you may want to verify that the desired  results or benefits of the task have been obtained.

After selecting and recording appropriate mileposts and deadlines, you need  to monitor the task to make sure that you are reaching these mileposts by their  deadlines.

2. Visualizing your achievement — 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  the activities involved in achieving your current goal. 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 scenes to use for the visualization. These scenes  should show you working on your current goal, achieving the goal, and enjoying  its benefits. (Note: this is one reason to choose goals that give you excitement  and pleasure.) The more details and intense feelings you can think of the  better.

Now 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.

This exercise should help you to keep working toward your goal. It should  also help your subconscious mind believe that you are capable of achieving the  goal.

Repeat this visualization three times a day for two weeks. Then use it once a  day until the idea of achieving your goal and having a better life feels  normal.
