I don’t know about that, but I certainly know that many of us want to keep unlocking more of the power of our minds.
When I first began this work, I thought of getting what you want far more practically than I do today.
Back then I saw it as getting clear on what you want (goals), and building powerful processes and skills to get it.
Today, that’s still the foundation of my system, yet over the years I began to see the deeper force behind all these things is your mind.
I saw that, in order for you to be willing to dream up what you truly want, you must build that type of optimism and belief into your thinking.
That for you to take powerful actions, and to have the motivation to keep getting better and learning skills, you must condition your thinking to do so.
In all, behind these practical steps to getting what you want, it is our ways of thinking, feeling, and our motivation to take actions, that is driving all of the steps.
And, behind this, there is something else too, what we might call “Will.”
That is, quite simply, your skillfulness at getting your mind to unlock more of your potential.
We all know that our minds quite happily operate in our comfort zone of habit and redundant thinking, and left to their own devices will do more of the same.
Rather than go to the gym and give it your all, for instance, the mind does what it is comfortable doing, and it’s the will that trains the mind to stretch and do more.
Similarly, when you dream, when you really think big, even if you can stretch your mind far enough, you must be able to get it to stick there, to form a new comfort zone beyond where your old fears and inhibitions would kick in.
Training the mind to flex this way is more than just occasionally thinking positive, and, instead, like training any skill, you want to use your will to methodically train.
When you’re at the gym, by challenging yourself to reach new levels, you keep proving to your mind that it can comfortably keep expanding your capabilities.
In your work, you want to remind yourself that you can give more, do more, take better actions, and keep proving to your mind that you can achieve better results.
And, in every aspect of your life, you want to train yourself to see the limits that your mind had imposed and keep doing things that expand your view of what is possible for you and your life.
In going for what you truly want, you surely need clear goals, and powerful processes and skills, yet all of these things only become possible through unlocking the power of your mind.
