In truth no matter what your goal is, the first step that you must take to reach your goal is to unclutter your mind. One of the reasons for which you still haven’t reached your goals, is the fact that all of what you’ve learned and heard, were implemented ideas that are now blocking their fulfillment inside you.
For this reason, it’s a great decision to first unlearn what you have learned.
Why do you need to do this? Let me briefly explain.
During our life, we’ve been brainwashed to think that certain goals are impossible to attain. I am telling you that this is one of the biggest lies that we encounter in our lives.
If you are serious about your dreams, if you really wish with all your heart to materialize your dreams, nothing… and I mean nothing can stand in your way. All you have to do is to get rid of all the garbage that was inoculated in your beliefs. Do it and don’t lose time finding out who put it in your mind, why this was done, and most of all don’t blame the ones who taught you those things.
Free yourself from the chains that lock your beliefs, the chains that step by step took control over your mind. Free yourself from the clutter that blocks your trust and self-confidence.
When I say to free yourself, I mean it. It’s not the same thing as saying to change you. Nothing inside your being will be changed, but contrary. You will cut the chains that transformed you into a manipulated slave. And by cutting them you will succeed to set free the Real You, the You who can touch the skies.
5 TIPS TO UNCLUTTER YOUR MIND
To unclutter your mind, you can start by uncluttering any beliefs that start with, “I can’t do it”, “It’s not possible” or ”It’s too hard for me to do it.” Believe me! Nothing is too hard for you to do if you really want to do it. Anything is possible if your heart and mind really wish for it and most of all… YOU can do it!
If you find difficulty with uncluttering, you can make a daily program for repeating out loud to yourself, “I am perfectly able to fulfill my goals”, or you can choose any other mantra that is of your liking.
Don’t worry! No one asks you to drastically change all your beliefs; no one will claim that the gravitational acceleration is no longer affecting our lives. 🙂 But you have to get rid of the ideas that there are goals that you can’t reach if you really need and want them to be fulfilled.
Replace any negative thoughts with positive ones and try to use your Ego as a friend, not as your enemy. Even if your goals seem at one moment in time to be impossible to fulfill, ask yourself, “What IF… it’s possible?”
Questions of the “what if” type, will start a process inside you in which your ego will want to prove that you are perfectly capable of doing it and that you are the best. We all have this notion inside us and think that we are the best… therefore, handle your ego and it will be your best ally.
This, together with a good plan, will help you succeed to make it happen.
