Most of us have either seen or heard of ‘The Secret‘ or attended a seminar on using affirmations, NLP or some other way to achieve success in any area of our life. It is so much simpler than many people make it out to be and of course there are things you need to know in order to really make it work.

Want to be fit and healthy?

Want to feel motivated?

First of all I want you to know, it’s all up to you, what you choose to feel and do and think every day. That’s the simple answer, yes, it really is that simple. Here is ‘The Not-So-Secret Secret’ to achieving or having anything:

  1. Know what it is you really want. “What do I really, really, really want?” and yes you must ask with all the really’s, it stimulates the brain to prioritise. We can want so many things that our brain can become confused “Oh I thought you said you wanted that pretty blue dress, now you telling me that you really just want the money to buy it and everything else. Make up your mind!” So please ask this question as written.
  2. Take some time to sit down and imagine having it. Do not imagine how you are going to get it, yet. Just sit down and imagine having your goal, what you will see, hear and feel when you have achieved your goal/s, one at a time. Imagine that day in as much detail as you can for no more than 3-5 minutes at day. You can also create a vision board or vision slide show (for your computer)
  3. Stay open for opportunities that present themselves to you, and when they do here’s a biggy: Take action and then take some more action. Nothing is achieved by sitting in your living room imagining it’s is going to happen. No really, nothing. Action is the step they missed out of the movie.
  4. Believe you can, and act as if you can. You can, everyone can and you are not any different than anyone else. you are not special enough to be left out of the category of ‘people who can achieve their dreams with a little work and dreaming.’ This category of people includes everyone on this planet and you are included amongst them. If someone who has lost their legs, or their mobility or grown up in squalor can win a gold medal at the Olympics or end up a millionaire and there are many instances of those things happening then YOU CAN, too.
  5. Surround yourself with positive people. This is key! One of the reasons people do not achieve their goals is the doubt created by other people in their lives. Stay away from them and if you cannot, say to them: “I am so grateful that you are trying to keep me safe with your words of caution, BUT I need to try this for myself.” and then remove yourself from their presence and get with some people who are supportive, asap.
  6. Love what you do. Whew! this is a biggy, it is a lot more difficult to achieve a goal if you are doing something day after day that you do not like doing. So either learn to love what you are doing, or find something you love doing and do that for money.
  7. Keep yourself healthy and fit. The healthier and fitter you are the more energetic and motivated you wil feel on a daily basis to achieve those goals.
  8. Take stock regularly. Regularly, at least once a month take stock of what you are doing, figure out what is working and what is not and depending on what you find, change your priorities put what is working at the top of your priorities and what isn’t at the bottom and get rid of most of what isn’t working altogether. We can often get so busy we forget to adjust what we’re doing, to make sure our time is spent on what is working in our lives. Time and energy are prescious don’t waste it on something that is not going to get you where you want to be.
  9. Help others to achieve their dreams. Why? Because along the way the people you help will help you in some way and teach you something you need to learn. Be grateful for those people for their time in your life. Do this with one proviso, people are a part of your taking stock (#8), if there are people in your life that are dragging you down, think seriously of allowing them to slip away, help people who are just as determined and motivated as you are. There are a lot of people out there who say they want to be successful and spend more time giving themselves excuses why they’re not they will waste your time and turn into those people who will eventually begin to doubt yourself.
  10. Believe in yourself. Like I said before you can  be, do and have anything if you want it enoug to take action on a daily basis toward having, being to doing it. If you stay open to the opportunities that present themselves to you and take stock regularly and cut the dross.

Be Fit! Be Well! do it online…
