Are you finding your life devoid of pith and substance? Are you seemingly running in place without getting even a millimeter further? Worry not, because anybody can rise above mediocrity – provided YOU take the first step towards rising above it.
A good starting point would be an ardent wish for a change – not a perfunctory, “mailed-in” wish. You must know what you want, even if you don’t yet know how to get it. And it MUST NOT BE AMBIGUOUS IN NATURE. If you only had a short time to live, what would you really want to see, experience and do? Inculcate in your mind a clear-cut objective, no room for ifs, buts or maybes.
Train your mind by focusing your most pressing, most clear-cut desires on the present, the immediacy of today, not what happened in the past or what may happen in the future. Embrace the present and let tomorrow take care of itself.
Exercise patience and exercise your mind of any negative thoughts or apprehensions. Expect and believe that you have your desire already.
Get charged up emotionally about your desire. Let these thoughts energize you, electrify you, behoove you to get cracking! You will find yourself achieving your desire if you are truly emotionally connected to it.
Make it a daily habit to affirm your ambitions and goals to yourself. Webster’s Dictionary defines an “affirmation” as a solemn and often public declaration of the truth or existence of something. Believe that you will get what you affirm you want.
Clear your mind of any and all negative thoughts. Negativity is the parent of mediocrity. You’ve heard it before – think positive, especially when it comes to your desire.
Believe in your abilities. A belief can be a form of positive energy as it is a thought. Your beliefs dictate who you are, and can be bane or boon depending on what they are. If there are any beliefs that shackle you in mediocrity, then purge them post-haste. Retain those beliefs that bring contentment and quality to your life.
Think of your desire and focus on it. Your desire will become so real you can touch it if you constantly and consistently visualize, feel, believe and affirm. And if you add more than a healthy helping of focus, your thoughts will be the main catalyst in helping you achieve that desire when the time is right.
You must have definite intentions. It is shocking not too many people know what an intention really is – it is a clear desire to do a certain action. Achieving your desire(s) is a direct outcome of your intentions.
Have it, think it, speak it, act it – this four-point plan was devised not by a great world leader or sporting figure, but by one Lisa Diane, whom a lot of you may not know, but is very well-known in the world of motivational guides and inspirational pabulum (food for thought, natch) – thanks to her for this bonus tip!
If you follow each of the above tips to the letter, with no exceptions, you can achieve your desire and attract every positive stimuli that would help in its achievement. You will be a better person for it, and you will have what you want.
