DID YOU MISS PART ONE? YOU CAN READ IT – HERE!
11. ANCHOR IT IN
Think of a time when you felt more confident than you have ever felt before. Now clench your fist. Keep doing this every day. Your body will start to associate the clenched fist with the feeling of confidence. So the next time you aren’t feeling very powerful, just clench your fist.
12. TIME TRAVEL
Go back in time to all those memories that have robbed you of your confidence and create a new meaning to them. Cognitive psychologist, Elizabeth Loftus has shown that memories can be changed and even false memories can be implanted in people. What this means is that you can literally go back in time and change your memories simply by repeatedly picturing the event while anchored into a positive state, so the meaning of the memory will become a positive one.
13. STEP INTO ANOTHER PERSON’S SHOES
The next time you find yourself stuck and facing a challenge, ask yourself what someone you admire would do in your situation. Do what they would do when they go through the struggle. One of the fastest ways to get what you want in life is to find someone who has it and do what they have done. The same can be done for a mental state as well.
14. STAND TALL
Social psychologist Amy Cuddy has found that strong body language actually changes the inner workings of your brain. Practice standing tall and embodying a posture of unbreakable confidence everywhere you go. This will ingrain it deep into your mind and your being.
15. USE CONFIDENT LANGUAGE
If every day you use the work depressed, you will become so. Studies have repeatedly shown that when people have been exposed to words relating to old age, they walked slower than those that were exposed to younger words. They saw old words and thus acted old. Use words like powerful, unstoppable and confident as a regular part of your daily vocabulary.
16. ASK NEW QUESTIONS
All thoughts are questions or answers to questions. If you disagreed with me, it’s because your mind asked is he right or wrong? Most people ask questions like, “What is good about this situation?” “How can I make this work?” The questions you ask yourself to shape your experience of life.
17. SCHEDULE CONFIDENCE
Tony Robbins says “If you talk about it, it’s a dream, if you envision it, it’s possible, but if you schedule it, it’s real.” Whatever you want to get done in your life, whatever challenges you want to overcome put it on a calendar and schedule it.
18. BE STILL
In his research, Dr. Andrew Newberg found that brain scans of meditating Buddhists had greater activity in the parts of the brain associated with focus and awareness than those that do not engage in some sort of meditation. For 10 minutes a day, sit in silence without distractions and just be with your thoughts. This will improve your ability to focus on finding solutions to challenges and creating the life you want to live – as opposed to being at the mercy of circumstances
19. GET SOMETHING DONE
Who doesn’t love getting results? If you want to figure out an answer to a challenge, take action and accomplish something. No matter how small, set a task related to your challenge and finish it to completion.
20. MAKE YOUR DESIRED ACTIONS AUTOMATIC
The key to mastering self-control; and willpower in the face of a challenge is learning how to build positive habits. Keep practicing the desired action for at least 30 days to make your new habit automatic and something you no longer have to think about. Practice building one desired habit a month to help you feel more accomplished and in control of your life.
So there you have it. The last 10 steps that will help you change your Mindset.
It’s all about taking action. It’s all about believing that you can do it and making it happen. There is no reason why you should not be taking control of your life, your business, and your health. I don’t want to hear any excuses!!! To your success!!!
