You can choose to plant seeds of greatness in your mind and in your life today with the thoughts you think and the activities you do or you can chant and rant about what's wrong with "your field/life", "the weather", etc.
To achieve your goals you've got to learn to become a better planter than you are a chanter and a ranter.
Earl Nightingale wrote, “You become what you think about.” In the Bible it says that, “Whatsoever a man soweth, that also shall he reap.” And this law of sowing and reaping refers to mental states; to your thoughts.
Of course, there is a potential danger in the use of your superconscious mind. It is like fire...a wonderful servant, but a terrible master. If you use it improperly, and think negative, fearful thoughts, your superconscious mind will accept your thoughts as a command and go to work to materialize them into your reality.
What is the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people? It is as simple as this: Successful people think and talk about what they want, and unsuccessful people talk about what they don’t want.
So here is a 7-step plan to achieving your goal(s). Make this plan a regular habit, and you will be astonished at the results.
1. Decide exactly what you want. This is usually the biggest problem that people have. They don’t know what they want and then they’re surprised when they don’t get it.
2. Write your goal clearly in every detail. A goal that is not written down is merely a wish. When you write it down, you signal to your superconscious mind that you really want to accomplish this particular objective.
3. Write your goal in simple, present tense words on a three-by-five index card and carry it with you to read and re-read throughout the day whenever you get a chance.
4. Make a list of everything you can think of that you can do that will move you toward your goal. Making a list intensifies your desire and deepens your belief that the attainment of the goal is possible for you.
5. Organize the list by priority. What is more important and what is less important?
6. Resolve to take action every day on one of the items on your list. Do something every day that moves you toward your goal so that you can maintain your momentum.
7. Visualize your goal repeatedly. See it in your mind’s eye as though it were already a reality. The more clear and vivid your mental picture of your goal, the faster it will come into your life.
Practice these steps continually until you succeed in achieving your goal. By doing so, you will move from the “positive thinking” of the hopeful person to the “positive knowing” of the totally successful person.
