Mind & Emotions
Learn how to overcome your fears and let your true self shine.
"He who has overcome his fears will truly be free."
Can you imagine waking up one day, without any fear whatsoever? What would you feel? Try it now. Close your eyes, breathe, and do it for 10 seconds. Imagine you don't feel any fear, and what you feel able to do without it...
Have you felt more freedom? It's probable you felt capable of doing more than you believe you’re right now.
Because that’s what happens when you start overcoming your fears: You begin to make your true self shine!
The most limiting fear we can have is that something doesn't have a solution.
The truth is you can always improve your body state through natural solutions, once you identify the sources of toxicity.
Additionally, sometimes, the fear related with some diagnosis, is also the disease stigma. In other words, the fear of rejection and discrimination, like in the case of people with a positive HIV test.
On this, what I am here to tell you is that your real issue is your fear of others’ rejection, or of losing someone's support.
In fact, the most limiting factor for your freedom in health, or any other dimension of your life, are your fears.
Yet, all your fears can be overcome by only one person: You.
As a result, it's easy to understand you can only overcome your fears after you take full ownership of your life and feelings.
Hence, the first step to get where you want to be, in all dimensions of your life, is take ownership of it all. And that includes your health.
Because the first step to overcome your fears is to start to face them.
But before you start facing your fears, let’s first understand their origin.
Where Do Fears Come From?
Either you are conscious or not, you guide every decision you make by an internal belief system.
Indeed, most of us aren’t even conscious of our strongest beliefs, which are deeply rooted in our sub-conscious mind.
Because most of our internal scripts have been programmed in our childhood, up to the age of 7.
Up to that age, we learn through our unconscious mind. Young children brains function in a different wave length, making the learning process much easier and faster.
In short, children absorb information like a sponge.
As a consequence, everything you learned up to the age of 7 more ingrained in your subconscious mind. As a result, those are the most challenging beliefs to change.
Yet, with the will to take ownership of your beliefs, and the right knowledge and tools, everything is possible.
Moreover, your subconscious beliefs make you respond to stimuli from your environment, in a specific way.
That’s the reason you tend to repeat the same kind of emotional responses over and over again. Because those situations are in a certain way linked with a situation in your childhood, which triggered the same response.
For example, if you are someone who avoids expressing your emotions, you may have learned “boys don’t cry” or to “gulp back your tears”.
As a result, you may have the subconscious belief your feelings and vulnerabilities are a sign of weakness. At the same time, you might get the belief expressing those feelings would lead to rejection or shame.
Thereafter, you start to believe it's safer to suppress your feelings and hide them behind a fake happiness mask. As a consequence, you become someone always pretending that everything is OK, hiding your true self behind your mask…
Without a doubt, some of the most limiting beliefs you can have are fear related. Because in essence a fear is a belief something bad might happen. And if you subconsciously believe something bad may happen, you won't do it, and you won't even realize why. It's what we call self-sabotage.
Yet, when you suppress your emotions, they get trapped in your body, and physical symptoms may start to show up.
"Reality is the terrain, while your truth is your map. And because it’s a map, it’s always an approximation of reality."
How Does The Human Mind Work?
The 2 Worlds Inside Your Mind
First, to understand how your mind operates, you must acknowledge you have “2 minds”. Although you can view them as separate entities, they complement each other and work together.
On one hand is your conscious mind, which includes the thoughts and feelings you are aware of.
When you are learning to do something, you put your conscious mind into work to understand all the steps you have to go through.
Do you remember when you were learning to tie your shoelaces? After you did the task several times it became unconscious. Thereafter, you no longer need to use your conscious mind to do it.
This happens because the responses that lead to your sequence of actions have become automatic. Because they are now programmed into your subconscious mind.
For example, while driving, you don’t consciously think about all the actions and decisions of the driving activity itself. They become automatic. This is what allows you to keep your focus on the road and other cars, and take decisions based on your environment.
If you were focused on how to step on a pedal or turn the wheel, you would lose focus of your environment, compromising your safety.
The capacity to program our minds to do things unconsciously is what allows us to add up actionable learning, and do more complex things.
That’s why you are completely unconscious of 90% of what you do, which most of the time is a good thing.
Yet, some of your programs are preventing you to reach your goals…
The Importance Of Your Limiting Beliefs
In fact, your programs are the belief systems you have built through your life experience. Particularly during your childhood, to keep you safe.
As a consequence, many of your beliefs are today limiting and disempowering you, on your feelings, thoughts, and actions.
All in all, if you want to expand and reach certain goals, you must overcome those beliefs, by replacing them with new and more empowering ones.
Because this is the only way you will reach your true potential and make it shine…
With this in mind, and to help you better overcome your limiting beliefs, let’s take a closer look on what's belief, and how they're formed.
What is a Belief?
A belief is a representation of reality based on your personal experience.
In other words, it is your truth based on your life perception, which can be different from reality.
In fact, it's never the complete reality, but your perception of it. As a consequence, any truth is always a part of reality.
Put another way, it’s like reality is the terrain, while your truth is your map. And because it’s a map, it’s always an approximation of reality, but never has all its details.
Unfortunately, sometimes our map is not even close to the terrain. The same is to say, sometimes our truth is not even close to reality.
All in all, your present beliefs can support or limit you in the achievement of your goals, depending on their similarity to reality.
Moreover, your beliefs also influence your reality. Because what you feel, think, and speak, shows up in your interaction with others.
And the good news is: You can always better align your beliefs with reality.
Because reality is: Your goals, your health, and your freedom, are at your reach through the expression of your true self.
With this in mind, let’s see how you form your beliefs, and how you can influence your future and health in the direction you want.
How Are Beliefs Formed and Strengthened?
As any program you have registered in your subconscious mind, you create and strengthen beliefs by repetition.
In particular, beliefs are born and grown by repetition of spoken, heard, thought, or felt affirmations.
Indeed, the more you repeat an affirmation and the more emotional intensity you put in it, the stronger your belief grows.
It can come from something your parents told you, you watched on TV, or a situation you experienced.
Sometimes, a single but intense event can carve a belief in your subconscious mind. In some of those moments, we choose a conscious truth different from reality, because it's too painful to face...
When that happens, we chose to believe in a truth which makes us feel safer. But deep inside our subconscious mind has another truth... And because it's unconscious, it rules our life while we are not aware of it.
In particular in childhood, a single but intense experience can be enough to carve a strong limiting belief for your entire life. Or until you become aware of it and decide to change it…
To sum up, all your truths become the belief system which will limit or empower you through life. And your present truths and beliefs are a consequence of your past choices and emotions attached to them.
The same is to say, your present choices about the beliefs you want to overcome or strengthen within you, will define your future reality. In other words, they will define your future life and health.
"It’s more accurate to talk about different body states, than in absolutes like health or disease."
How Your Beliefs Influence Your Health?
What is the definition of disease?
To understand what’s health, it’s important to understand first what’s a disease.
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary a disease is “a condition of the living animal or plant body or of one of its parts that impairs normal functioning and is typically manifested by distinguishing signs and symptoms”.
Also, according to the Britannica Encyclopedia, a disease is “any harmful deviation from the normal structural or functional state of an organism, generally associated with certain signs and symptoms and differing in nature from physical injury. A diseased organism commonly exhibits signs or symptoms indicative of its abnormal state. Thus, the normal condition of an organism must be understood in order to recognize the hallmarks of disease. Nevertheless, a sharp demarcation between disease and health is not always apparent.”
In conclusion, the frontier between health and disease is far from clearly defined.
All in all, the question we may ask is: What’s the perfect body state of each person?
What is perfect health?
Like in all dimensions of life, in health, you can always be better or worse than you are now. As a consequence, the perfect health is a utopia.
Like in all other dimensions of life, our body state can be as good as we can envision it.
For instance, there are people who dedicate entire lives to their body's transformation, by exploring its limits, through training and nutrition.
With this in mind, it’s more accurate to talk about different body states, than in absolutes like health or disease.
Is There a Perfect Solution To Improve Each Body State?
The names given to diseases are simply labels given by the medical community. Those labels are given mainly based on symptoms.
Their goal is to classify each body state, to be able to prescribe a predetermined solution to end with the symptoms.
These solutions are defined by official institutions, with the support of the pharmaceutical industry, and their dependent scientific community.
For example, people can be diagnosed as having cancer. Yet, most of the time, the causes behind the development of the cancer and the internal process which led to it, are unknown from science and the medical community.
What’s defined by the medical community, is the solution to apply for each specific cancer, and for each stage of its development.
In fact, medical doctors are limited in the solutions they can suggest, without risking losing their license. Because that’s what can happen if they apply a solution out of what’s predetermined by the pharmaceutical industry.
But as we have seen, each person and body is different. Absolute health or disease do not exist.
As a result, for body states perceived as equal, the solution for an increased health can be different from person to person.
In fact, it can depend on the kind and level of toxicity of each body, the emotional state of each person and the energetic state of the being as a whole.
What's more, a crucial factor will determine the success of the solution: the emotional response of each person to the solution.
The Power Of The Placebo Effect
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a placebo is “an inert or innocuous substance used especially in controlled experiments testing the efficacy of another substance”.
Furthermore, it defines the placebo effect as an “improvement in the condition of a patient that occurs in response to treatment but cannot be considered due to the specific treatment used”.
In other words, the placebo effect is the healing reaction your mind produces in your body, on the belief you're taking an effective substance. When in reality you're taking an innocuous substance…
In particular, people can end existing symptoms by taking a placebo, in the belief they're taking medication to their specific case.
To clarify, they're being given something that has zero effect on improving their health, like for example a sugar pill. Still, they improve their body state.
That’s the power of your mind and your beliefs.
In fact, the more you believe you will be healthy, the more you will induce health in your body.
In contrast, the more you believe you are or will be sick, the more you will induce sickness.
The Other Side Of The Placebo effect
The placebo effect, also has its opposite: the nocebo effect.
The nocebo effect is when your belief in being sick or in something making you sick, ends up compromising your health.
As an illustration, if you receive a wrong diagnose of a disease labeled as deadly or incurable, you can develop it, even if you didn't have it.
For example, in the case of HIV, when testing positive you may believe you'll get sick without the help of synthetic drugs. As a consequence, you may feel you are under a death sentence.
If you believe the deadly prognosis you are given, you may believe that you have to take daily medication for the rest of your life to live longer. Also, you may have in your mind the lingering threat of AIDS, always ready to fall over your head.
As a result, these beliefs will feed your body with more fear and stress. As a result, your emotions will induce the nocebo effect, weaken your immune system, and degrade your health state.
Because your mind and emotions have a direct effect in the way you feel, they will influence the hormones you produce. Also, they influence your heart rate, and even how you digest and absorb food.
Altogether, the nocebo effect has a strong impact in the toxicity in your body.
All in all, that’s how many people develop diseases through negative states of mind and emotions.
In other words, those negative mind and emotions will push you in the opposite direction you want. Since the solution to your health freedom is to empower yourself, by taking full ownership of it.
Because that's the power of your mind and beliefs. They can influence and lead you getting worse or better, depending on your emotional choices and responses.
It is up to you to choose what you want to believe in. Both at the conscious and subconscious level, and train your mind to get there.
You are in charge. Because, you have the power to change your subconscious beliefs, starting by bringing them to your conscious mind.
Why Overcoming Your Fears Is Essential To Your Health?
If someone has a traumatic experience with a dog, it can become his truth that all dogs are dangerous.
Although, we know most dogs are harmless in most situations, for that specific person, “reality” is rather different.
His truth, or in other words, his belief, is that all dogs are dangerous.
Fear is one of the strongest emotions to induce the nocebo effect and immune system weakness.
Stress and fear make your body produce high levels of cortisol and adrenaline. If kept for more than a brief period of time, it can disrupt the natural balance of your body.
In fact, when you have fear of something, it’s because to some extent you believe it can happen. And the more you believe in something the more power you give it to turn into reality.
As a result, the more fear you have of a disease, the more you are inducing it.
As a consequence, as in any other dimension of life, in health, overcoming your fears is an essential step to reach your goals.
"The only real, effective and liberating cure, is the cure from the inside out."
How To Reclaim Your Heath Freedom?
The Only Real Cure Is From The Inside Out
From my personal experience, and everything I've seen and learned since then, the only path to your health freedom is through your health ownership. In particular, through the power of natural solutions, your mind, and your being.
Synthetic drugs, in some cases, can remove specific symptoms. But in the long run they do more harm than good, introducing more toxicity into your body.
In particular, most of the benefits of synthetic drugs are due to the placebo effect.
From my experience, my research, and other people using natural and holistic solutions, this is the only path to sustainable health.
Altogether, the only real, effective and liberating cure, is the cure from the inside out.
From Fear to Health Freedom
The most powerful factor for an improved body state is the power of your beliefs and your subconscious mind.
Hence, if your core belief is you need to take medication to be healthy, and you aren’t willing to work to change those beliefs, then maybe you should go for it.
To clarify, if you believe in one thing, but are doing the opposite, it will cause you stress and fear. As a result, it will induce body toxicity and a vulnerable immune system. Under those circumstances, it's crucial you have your actions aligned with your beliefs.
In the end, you're the owner of your body and the only person entitled to decide in what do you want to believe and in whom to trust.
Because to conquer your health freedom, the first person you need to trust is in yourself.
The same is to say, your best choice is the one for which your actions are aligned with what you believe on a subconscious level.
Yet, any time you want, it's in your power to change your mind. It's always the time to adopt new empowering beliefs that allow your health improvement from the inside-out.
"Your body is always giving you feedback of how much in harmony it is."
Why Physical Symptoms Are Here To Help Us?
Physical symptoms is the way your body has to let you know something is not working well.
In fact, the cause or a fundamental co-factor of the symptom, is always some kind of toxicity in your body.
It can have a physical origin, like bad nutrition, long term or short term poisoning, or the presence of electromagnetic fields. Or it can have an emotional origin, through the nocebo effect.
Most of the time, you can even correlate the location of the physical symptom to the emotional reason behind it.
For example, if you avoid speaking your truths, you might have a sore throat. If you are “sick” of hearing someone that is hard to avoid, you can come up with an ailment in your ears.
If you start recalling your past, or analyzing your present situation, it's likely you find out similar correlations.
Your body is always giving you feedback of how much in harmony it is. As a result, it lets you know if something can be improved or changed for the better.
Feeling pain or discomfort is a way of your body calling for your attention.
The good news is you can learn how to become more aware of the signs your body gives you, before it reaches a more extreme state.
Because, the more you train your sensitivity, the more you pay attention to the gentle whispers of your body, before it starts to scream for attention.
For instance, a small headache is easier to solve than a huge migraine. Additionally, solving it sooner will also improve your quality of life, on a consistent and sustainable way.
In particular, you can train your self-awareness on your emotions and feelings. By connecting to your body and paying attention to its sensations, you'll be able to understand its messages.

How To Overcome Your Fears?
The Importance Of Your Relationships
After you decide to conquer your health freedom by taking full ownership of it, the next step is to choose the environment you want to live in.
Indeed, you have to consciously choose the people with whom you want to relate, in particular the closest ones.
There’s a rule of thumb which says you are the average of the 5 persons closest to you. Because beliefs are contagious.
As a result, people surrounding you, have a strong impact on your belief system.
At the same time, your belief system is what determines the way you respond to life.
All in all, people surrounding you will determine what you allow yourself to be and achieve.
One Of Your Biggest Challenges
For some people, urgency in conquering their health freedom, is the justification they needed to break a relationship. Because deep inside, they were already feeling those relationships were doing them more harm than good.
Yet, for many people, facing the fact their health implies breaking relationships is too hard. Because deep inside they feel they are not prepared to.
In fact, in those situations, what happens is the fear of rejection and loneliness is too strong. People feel they will not be safe if they break the relationship.
The only alternative to break toxic relationships, is the other person to change their attitude towards us, and start to value and respect us.
But if we will be waiting for it, there is a high risk it never happens. Because the truth is most people are not willing to change, unless they have a very strong incentive.
And even then, many people prefer not to change. Many people prefer to die than to change. And that must be respected.
All in all, many times, the only way out to your health freedom is to take full ownership of it, by gaining the courage to break with toxic relationships.
In short, all your health starts by self-love.
Because it’s the lack of it that silently corrodes you and intoxicates you from the inside out.
Breaking Free From Toxic Relationships
Breaking free from toxic relationships is an essential step to conquer your health freedom.
Because this step is always a challenge, I share with you some thoughts that can help you overcome it:
- The first step about reclaiming your health is to identify the sources of toxicity and removing them from your life. By maintaining relationships you know have led you to your present situation you are preventing your healing from the inside out.
- People who love you will respect and support you in any decision you take in your life. They might give you their different opinions, but they will not condition their approval based on your choices. Also, they will not try to convince you to do as they think you should.
- A person who loves you won't judge you. Be aware that sometimes, unspoken judgements can be more toxic than spoken ones.
- You will never be alone if you find love for yourself. But you will always be alone by keeping a relationship with someone who doesn't respect you. In fact, you will feel alone within, each time you will be with that person.
- You will never find love for yourself, by keeping close to people who don’t see you as a person capable of achieving your own goals and dreams.
- The world has 8 billion people. In the end, the right people will love you. The only thing you need is to learn to love yourself.
All in all, if you choose the path of health freedom and natural solutions, but at the same time keep close to people who believe you will never become healthier in that way, the nocebo effect will keep ticking inside you.
And as you've learned, your mind power is the single most important factor for you to reclaim your health freedom.
Still, you have always the final decision on where and how you want to achieve your goals and health.
The Power Of Emotional Freedom Techniques
There are several ways to overcome your limiting beliefs and emotions.
One of the most powerful tools for that purpose is Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT).
EFT is a simple tool you can also use on your own and can go deep into your subconscious mind. It helps you to relax, face your fears, and overcome them.
In practice, what you do with EFT is to act on your limbic system, by tapping in some of your meridian points, the same used in acupuncture.
At the same time, you do a set of affirmations and go through your emotions in your present situation. Most of the time, it's possible to relate your emotions with a past situation.
After you become aware of the link between your past and present situations, you feel more relaxed and empowered to face and overcome your fears.
Because being aware of the connection between the two, allows you to experience a positive emotional change.
In fact, by tapping on your meridians while reviewing a traumatic experience, your limbic system calms down in connection with it.
In short, with EFT you release the emotional burden of the past, feeling more in peace in the present.
You can use EFT not only for fear, but for any other limiting emotion or belief.
In particular, you can also use it to release disease stigma, with related emotions like shame, guilt, and the fear of social rejection.
"The key for a fulfilled life is to reprogram your subconscious mind, from an attitude of victimization and fear, to an attitude of responsibility and ownership."
Overcome Your Fears And Make Your True Self Shine
When you open yourself to change and allow yourself to transform from the inside-out, your life shifts.
When you change your beliefs, new opportunities show up, and you're able to embrace them.
By changing your beliefs, not only you put yourself in a position to gain full ownership of your health, but you also stop sabotaging yourself.
The key for a fulfilled life is to transform your subconscious mind, from an attitude of victimization to an attitude of ownership.
Because as you will see further down, mastering your emotions is the only path to your freedom and to make your true self shine.
"Emotions will either serve or master, depending on who is in charge."
― Jim Rohn
Would you like to know the key for a fulfilled life? Who doesn’t, right? In some way, it's what we are all searching our entire lives…
What if I told you that the single most important skill you can learn to have a fulfilled life is to master your emotions? Because your power lies between what happens to you and your response to it.
In other words, it's by mastering your emotions you will gain the freedom to make your true self shine!
“You Become What You Think About”, But...
What you think about yourself, you become.
What you believe you are capable of, you are.
How many times have you read or heard statements like these?
If you are someone dedicated to self-improvement, it's certain you’ve already stumbled upon similar quotes.
Some of the greatest free minds the world has seen, like James Allen, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Earl Nightingale, to name a few, all said the same thing.
And they were right.
Yet, there’s a catch that those great thinkers missed. They may have missed it because it was something too natural to them.
They told us that to be what we want, all we have to do is to master our thoughts. But the thing is: if we can’t master our emotions first, we will never be able to master our thoughts.
In other words, only by becoming aware of your subconscious mind, and its overwhelming power over your conscious mind, will you be able to master your life.
Because your mind and emotions rule your life. And if in alignment with your goals and desires they can empower you.
But when your beliefs are not in harmony with what you want, it’s like trying to get through a concrete wall.
Most of us are not aware of it because our self sabotaging processes run in our subconscious mind.
The good news is: you can reprogram your subconscious mind the way you want, anytime you want, leading your life into the direction you want.
Let’s understand how it works.
"The way you can change your emotional response to situations, is by changing your subconscious mental scripts."
The Gap Between Stimulus And Response
Humans are emotional creatures.
In fact, emotions can be defined as the bridge between your body and your mind.
But as we have seen, and you have experienced, in many situations, your thoughts and emotions don’t help you to experience the life you want.
Indeed, some thoughts and emotions that come up are automatic responses to external stimuli. Because you are dealing with a situation that is triggering your subconscious mind, based on your past experience.
To have responses in alignment with the life experience you want, you must replace the ones that don't serve you.
With this in mind, you change your emotional response to situations, by changing your subconscious mental scripts.
In fact, the first step to change your programs is to become conscious of which ones you have and where do they come from.
"Your power is in the space between the stimulus of the external event and the response to it."
Beliefs Are Like Computer Programs
The beliefs you have in your subconscious mind, determine how you respond to stimuli from your environment.
They are like a scripts or programs trowing out always the same output for the corresponding input.
Your power is in the space between the stimulus of the external event and the response to it.
In other words, your power is in your ability to reprogram your mind and emotions to produce the responses you want.
Let’s see how you can do it.
"Allow yourself to feel."
How To Reprogram Your Mind and Emotions?
Identify the Trigger And Gain Emotional Awareness
The first step to master your emotions is to become aware of them.
The same is to say, first you need to identify what beliefs in your subconscious mind are triggering your automatic responses.
You can start by better connecting with your emotions by paying more attention to your body.
In other words, allow yourself to feel.
All emotions are valuable, and it's good you express them. Yet, some are more pleasant than others.
For example, from a state of depression, anger can be a good thing because it's a more empowering emotion. The same is to say, it’s a higher level of energy emotion, since it drives you to take some action. And action is power.
It’s always better if you can speak up your mind in a calm and peaceful way. But, sometimes you are mimicking a pattern you used to watch when you were a child.
Thus, it might be this is the only way you know how to express yourself, at the moment.
And that’s OK.
With time, you can always learn to adopt better ways of feeling and communicating.
The only downside of emotions is when you get stuck in a pattern, and thus you consume and deplete yourself with those emotions.
Indeed, this happens when you keep reliving the same memories, experiencing the same emotions, and having the same thoughts over and over again...
The first step to change those patterns is to become aware of them.
Here is a 2-step exercise to improve your emotional awareness, for a response you want to change.
1. Write down what you're feeling:
- Take a moment to sit down and connect to your body.
- Breathe deeply. This brings you to the present moment.
- Scan your body, paying special attention to your chest area.
- How do you feel in there? Does it feel open, peaceful and receptive? Or is it blocked, heavy and confused?
- Can you give it a shape? What size is it? Does it have a color? Of what material is it made of?
- Write down what you're feeling, be honest with yourself. There is no right or wrong answer.
- If it’s easier for you, make a drawing of what you're feeling. Use different colors and give it a shape.
- Now that you're more conscious of your body in relation with the event, it's easier to uncover what's triggering your response.
2. Identify the trigger:
- Remember what happened or what you were thinking when you produced the undesired response? Have you seen something? Was it something you heard? Did you receive some bad news? Did something change? Does the present situation make you go back in time, bringing up an old memory?
- Write down what's making you feel uncomfortable, blocked or afraid.
Use EFT To Transform Your Limiting Emotions Into Empowering Ones
As you've seen, EFT is an excellent tool to transform your beliefs and clear negative emotions.
You can do it on your own, or if you choose someone you trust as a facilitator, it will be even more effective.
Read what you've written in the previous exercise and give it a number from 1 to 10. This number represents the intensity of the feeling you are experiencing.
Do some EFT cycles on it, until its intensity is 3 or less.
Use this technique for any situation or emotion you feel is limiting what you can achieve.
"The main purpose of your goals is your transformation into the person you have to become to achieve those goals."
10 Steps To Make Your True Self Shine?
The foundations of your life are your habits and daily rituals.
Because reality is: you are what you do on a daily basis.
As a result, it's essential you choose your monthly, weekly and daily habits, in alignment with the person you want to be, and the goals you want to achieve.
Because in the end, the main purpose of your goals is to transform yourself into the person you have to become, to achieve those goals.
Here are 10 steps to help you reprogram your mind and emotions, and make your true self shine:
1. Define The Character You Want To Have and Your Mission Statement
- Start by defining who do you want to be.
- Think you are at your own funeral. What would you like your friends, coworkers, family, and community to say about you? What are the qualities and accomplishments you would like them to describe about you? In short, what character would you like them to have seen in you? Write it down.
- From what you have written, write a first draft of your mission statement, by answering the question: For what and how do I want to contribute in my life?
- Review your mission statement on a monthly basis.
2. Watch Your Behaviors and Attitudes
- By paying attention to your words and actions you can uncover many of your beliefs, even some unconscious ones. The expressions that you use, and you have grown up hearing, are part of your belief system. And as we have seen, it’s your belief system that will determine what you will be and do with your life.
- Write down what you realize you do or say on a regular basis, which isn’t aligned with your mission statement.
- Do some EFT on it and watch your words and actions on a daily basis.
3. Write Down Your Goals
- Make a list of the goals you want to achieve this week, this month, this year, next year and the following, up to 5 years, or even 10 if you want.
- Define your goals according to the following 7 domains of your life: Being, Mind, Body, Relationships, Projects, Experiences, and Finances.
4. Plan Your Life On a Weekly Basis
- Define your major long term goal.
- Give your mind a clear sense of direction by defining for each week what’s your major short term goal leading to your long term one.
- Block one day of your weekend to plan your week.
- Plan your week based on your major short term goal, and block your mornings to work on it every day until it’s done.
- When it’s done, define your next major goal, and start working on it in the same way.
5. Meditate Every Morning
A great thing to do every day, is to meditate at least 15 minutes, first thing in the morning. That’s the moment your mind will benefit the most from meditation. It will help you to calm down your mind and train your ability to focus. You can focus on your breath while listening to some relaxing music, or follow a guided meditation. Choose the type of meditation you prefer. The important thing is you do it daily.
6. Appreciate What You Have
Every night, remember the 3 major big wins of your day, based on how well they made you feel. Even in the days when it’s not so easy to find them, make an effort… You will see they always exist. Sometimes they're simple and short moments or details of your day.
7. Review Your Goals Every Night
Before going to sleep, take a look at your major short term and long term goals.
8. Visualize Yourself In Action
Close your eyes and see yourself doing the necessary actions and accomplishing your major goal for the next day. Picture your perfect day in your mind. By seeing yourself in action and feeling you are doing it, you are getting familiar with it and programming your mind to do it.
9. Listen To Positive Affirmations
Listen to your positive affirmations and if possible repeat them out loud. To save your time, you can listen to them while working out, or doing another activity. One of the best options is to let it play when you put yourself to sleep. Additionally, you can put in place a daily routine of writing 5 to 10 affirmations, that are in alignment with your goals.
10. Sell Your TV
When you watch television, in particular the news, you are letting others program your subconscious mind. Be the only person to choose what you watch and what information will form your belief system.
In the end, your habits are what will allow you to see yourself the person you want to be, by honoring your commitments to yourself.
When you know you're able to do what you say to yourself, that’s when the magic starts to happen.
Because that’s when you start believing you are able to be whoever you decide to be. And that’s when your true self starts shining.
