Take control of your environment. Don’t let yourself be bombarded with the sensational stories and celebrity gossip that fill today’s TV news, radio programs and social media feeds. Be sure that what you see and listen to is consistent with the goals you want to achieve.
Listen Your Way to Success
Listen to educational audio programs in your car. The average person spends between 500 and 1,000 hours per year driving in the car. You can become an expert in your field by simply listening to educational audio programs as you drive from place to place.
Take Courses in Your Field
Attend seminars given by experts in your field. Take additional courses and learn everything you possibly can. Learn from the experts. Read their books and articles and listen to people with proven track records in the area in which you want to be successful.
Get Around the Right People
Associate only with positive, success-oriented people. Get away from the go-nowhere, negative types. If you have a negative boss, seriously consider changing jobs. Associating on a regular basis with negative people is enough in itself to condemn you to a life of underachievement, frustration and failure. Associate only with positive people. Get around winners!
Visualize Your Goals
The last thing before you fall sleep and the first thing in the morning, think about and visualize your goals as realities. See your goal vividly as though it already existed. Your subconscious mind is only activated by affirmations and pictures that are received in the present tense. Visualize everything including the type of relationships, home, car, career, health, and lifestyle that you really want. See yourself living the life that you want to live.
Here are 2 things you can do immediately to keep your mind and emotions focused on your goals and financial success:
- Listen to audio programs in your car. Feed your mind with a stream of high-quality, educational, motivational material that moves you toward your goal.
- Resolve to associate with positive people. Get around winners and get away from negative people who criticize, condemn and complain. This will change your life.
