Let’s face it . . .
Despite the popularity of books like Think and Grow Rich and thousands of How-To books, CD's, videos and articles over the past hundred years, there are still (according to StatisticBrain.com) only 62% of Americans who "usually" or "infrequently" make resolutions. Of those, only 8% ever achieve success. I've also heard other stats, but the fact remains that few of us are ever happy with the level of success we've achieved, or continue to achieve.
If you are one of these folks who have trouble making or sticking with a goal or resolution, you can take comfort in the fact that you are one of the 92%. . . or you can attempt to escape this seemingly endless trap of frustration. But how?! With a feeling of hopelessness pervasive amongst the vast majority of humans, its a statistical miracle, really, that any of us should be able to emerge as success stories!
But you do . . . at least some of you. The rest believe you can’t make it because you don’t have enough motivation, education, encouragement, persistence, or resources. But you are continuously told to believe otherwise, so you go along with this persistent suggestion from successful speakers and motivators who make their living from selling you their "success motivation" books, seminars, CD's and other programs.
But here’s the real scoop . . .
Let’s say you buy all their books, take their seminars, listen to their CD's and use their programs. This usually only turns out to be a “feel good” exercise, i.e., you feel like you are “doing something for me!” and take comfort in that fact.
But what are your results? Often results aren't there: your motivation lags. The affirmations don’t work. The Law of Attraction starts attracting neighbors with pit bulls and late-night parties. So when the courses don’t work, it becomes YOUR fault that you failed. (If you don’t believe me, read their legal disclaimers to get the full scope of your responsibility.)
This, however, is a win-win. They get to win because they obviously showed you the right way to commit to your goals and succeed. You, on the other hand, get to win because you proved once again to yourself “This won’t work for me.” Your hidden decision to “succeed by failing” has too firm a grasp on your consciousness – with little reason for your subconscious to change.
Now, think about that for a minute. At any given moment you decide on a goal, you either believe
a) I can do it or
b) I can’t do it.
YOUR BODY – that fine-tuned instrument of actual truth – will instantly decide if (a) you can do this or (b) leave it alone, you can’t do it, you’re not going to do it… or some other reason that may be hidden from your conscious mind.
So when you set your goals and affirmations,
• Wouldn’t it be nice to have your left AND right brains on board?
• Wouldn’t it be nice to have the body on board?
• Wouldn’t it be nice to have the emotions on board?
• Wouldn’t it be nice to have intuition come into play effortlessly, and
• Wouldn’t it be nice if the memory of ancestors, family, friends, and everything that’s ever happened in your life would not hold you back whenever you make a decision?
You can do this. But you must be able to get what is called “motivational cybernetic" feedback from your body and subconscious in order to navigate through this “soul logic” that exists inside you – out of the reach of your conscious understanding and control.
