Many times we listen to a motivational tape or read some inspirational tape and we are pumped up. We plan and are ready to go! But that is not so simple. Within two or three days we will have a feeling of moving slowly, or a thought that we are stuck. This feeling is normal. This is because the brakes are still on. And until we release our brakes we are not going to succeed.
1) GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE
When we start out we feel very uncomfortable. We might need to wake up early and stay up late. Make a cold call. Read books for hours. Getting out of the comfort zone is a must if we need to be successful. Yes we need to go the extra mile. Face the fears and go for it.Release brakes
2) DON’T BE AS DUMB AS AN ELEPHANT
We get used to the routine that anything out of the ordinary is pure frustration. Many of us are like the elephants. When an elephant is small, a rope is tied to its leg. The elephant will try but it will never be able to break free. The elephant soon becomes conditioned that it cannot break free. But even when they grow old and they have enormous strength the elephant never tries to break free. This is the way we are conditioned to believe in our limitations. So release your breaks for success.
3) STOP RE-CREATING THE SAME EXPERIENCE
If you don’t like it change it, says Jim Rohn. If we wake up at 8.00 daily and work in great agitation and wonder why your life isn’t changing is a common thought. But actually it is because we are continually doing the same thing day in and day out. So change the experience and you will have different experience.
4) CHANGE YOUR BEHAVIOR
A simple way to release the brakes is to change the behaviour. To change the behaviour list out the habits that you will want to change. Instead of sitting gloomy and sad, we can choose to smile at people. In return we will feel really happy.
5) CHANGE YOUR SELF-TALK WITH AFFIRMATIONS
Telling affirmations is a sure way to be successful. To create a successful affirmation, first write whatever you desire in the present tense and never use a negative word. For example, I don’t want to be lazy is a bad example, but you should say, I am an active, proactive worker. Visualize your success and affirmation every day. Success if yours. Have a great day.Release Brakes today.
