GREAT goals – Trust in yourself and the Universe

“As soon as you truly commit to making something happen, the ‘how’ will reveal itself.” —Anthony Robbins

web-82-3406200566-ONote: This is Part 6 in a 7-part series called GREAT goals: How to get what you want this year!

For many people, trust is the hardest part of goal setting (I know it is for me). Having a positive expectation that you will get what you want when a) you don’t have it now and b) you’ve never had it before can seem challenging.

So here are a few tips to help you build your faith:

Look for evidence that what you want is possible. For example, if you want more money, there are a gazillion rags to riches stories out there. There are many people (like Oprah Winfrey, Eckhart Tolle, Neale Donald Walsch, Jim Carrey, Anthony Robbins) who have done incredibly well, even though: they did not have a good start in life; they were at one point very poor; they did not go to Harvard. Once you open yourself up to the possibility of what you want, you will start seeing evidence of it everywhere. When that happens, know that you’re on the right path.

Get in the “corridor” of what you want. Go to events, attend meetings, and join online groups with people who have what you want. For example, before he became famous, Jim Carrey bought a suit with the little money he had, and attended parties with rich Hollywood people he didn’t even know, so that he could feel that he was like them.

Transfer feelings of success. Make a list of the times you’ve been successful before. Pick one or two and visualize them, remembering fully everything you saw, heard, and felt. Then imagine bringing these positive feelings with you as you achieve your new goal.

Practice feeling “as if” you already have what you want. The more you can visualize and imagine that you already have what you want, and the more you can feel those good feelings, the faster what you want will come to you.

Write affirmations in a visible place. Affirm that you already are or have what you want. (I put sticky notes on my bathroom mirror.) Repeating positive thoughts regularly will create new neural pathways in your brain, paving the way for success.

Say thank you in advance. Say thank you (to the Universe, Source, God, Allah, your angels, your guides, etc.) in advance, trusting that what you want is already on its way.

You are capable of achieving everything you want in life! And the Universe will rise up to support you, as soon as you get out of your own way and trust in yourself.

Wishing you great success this year in achieving your dreams! Let’s make 2017 rock.
