The turning point in my life was when I realized that there was only one thing preventing me from getting everything I want out of life.
That one thing was:
Once I got that, my life took a whole different turn. And your life could too. The truth is that your mind is the most powerful tool ever created? But are you using it to its full capacity?
Because you can either:
Use your mind to consciously design the life of your dream
Wander mindlessly through life not understanding why you aren’t where you want to be.
Which case applies to you?
Now, let me share with you what you can do to start designing the life you want using your the eight superpowers of your mind.
Shall we get started?
1. The power of belief
Every single building, bridge, chair, table, computer or piece of furniture is the results of a thought that was believed for long enough to manifest in the real world. For something to exist, someone somewhere must have the intent to create it. You have within you the ability to create a new reality by using the power of belief. Keep focusing your thoughts on something you really want. Soon enough, your actions will change progressively turning your thoughts into reality.
2. The power of intent
Why do you read this article? What is your intent? Most people go through life without any clear intent. They wake up in the morning with no clear intent. They go to work with no clear intent. As a result, they end up wasting their time and accomplishing far less than they’re capable of. You have the power to set a clear intent. Whenever you do something ask yourself? What’s my intent here? What am I trying to do? The more you take control of your intent, the better results you’ll get in life.
3. The power of clarity
What do you want? Where do you want to live? How much money do you want to make? What lifestyle do you want? Clarity is power. You can’t aim at a target that doesn’t exist. Sadly, most people have no clear goals. The more clarity you have, the better you’ll be able to leverage both the power of belief and the power intent to make your goals and dreams a reality.
4. The power of choice
No. You’re not a powerless creature who need politicians to save you. You have the power to choose. At any time, you can decide to make different decisions that will change the course of your life. It’s only when you accept you’re 100% responsible for your life that you can start changing it. Whether or not you’re conscious of it, you’re making choices every day.
• You choose to wake up early or late.
• You choose to watch TV or to work on your side business
• You choose to eat healthily or to eat junk food
• You choose to educate yourself or to watch Netflix
• You choose to focus on the positive or to dwell on the negative.
• You choose to set specific goals or to wander through life aimlessly
5. The power of repetition
Do you remember the first time you drove a car? You felt overwhelmed, didn’t you? But what happened next? By practicing again and again it becomes effortless. That’s the power of repetition. Through repetition, you can transfer any task or skill to your subconscious mind making you look as if you had some kind of superpower. You can learn anything you want. Just practice!
6. The power of conditioning
I have bad news. You’ve been programmed! Most of the beliefs you currently hold are not actually yours. These beliefs were planted in your mind by your parents, society, the media, your teacher or your friends. And many of them don’t benefit you. They don’t support you in living the life of your dreams. The good news is that you have the power to reprogram your mind. Through daily practice, you can learn to be more grateful, more decisive or more confident for instance.
7. The power of patience
Anything of value takes time. Quality relationships take years to mature. A fulfilling career takes years to develop. And any major goal you have right now will take years of hard work as well. Don’t give up prematurely because you didn’t get the results you wanted. If it is what you really want, stick to it! Focus your intent on it every single day and work on it. Patience is real power. Don’t underestimate it.
Remember that success is a very chaotic process, with ups and downs. Small successes are followed by major setbacks. And major setbacks often lead to important breakthroughs.
8. The power of perseverance
Your ability to persevere will largely determine your level of success in life. Set a deadline for your major goal and resolve to spend most of your time working on it. Never give up. Keep working on it even if the entire world around you is collapsing. For any goal that matters to you, use the power of perseverance. You’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish with it.
Cultivate these eight superpowers every day and you’ll be well on your way to achieving your goals and dreams. Finally, remember to be patient and to never give up.
