Are You stuck in a rust? Is it time to change for the better?

One of the great things about living in today's world of abundance and opportunity is that almost everything you want to do has already been done by someone else. It doesn't matter whether it's losing weight, running a marathon, starting a business, becoming financially independent, triumphing over breast cancer, or hosting the perfect dinner party. Someone has already done it and left clues in the forms of books, manuals, audio and video programs, university classes, online course,seminars and workshops.

If you want to retire a millionaire, for instances there are hundreds of books, ranging from the automatic millionaire to "The One Minute Millionaire" and workshops ranging from Harv Eker's "Millionaire Mind" to Marshall Thunder and D.C. Cordova's "Money and You." There are resource on how to make millions investing in real estate, investing in stocks, starting your own business, becoming a super salesperson, and even marketing on the internet.

If you want to have a better relationship with your spouse, you can read John Gray's "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, attend a couple workshop, or take Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks online cause. "The Conscious Relationship." For virtually everything you want to do, there are books and courses on how to do it. Better yet, just a phone call away are people who've already successfully done what you want to and who are available as teachers, facilitators, mentors, advisers, coaches, and consultants.

When you take advantage of this information, you will discover that life is simply a connect-the-dots game, and organized by somebody else. All you have to do is follow the blueprint,use the system, or work the program that they provide.

Why People Don't Seek Out Clues.

You most certainly can. In fact, you have most probably thoughts about approaching an expert for advice but rejected the idea with thoughts such as why would they teach me and create their own competition? Banish these thoughts. You will find that most people love to talk about how they built their business or accomplished their goals.

But unfortunately, most of us don't take advantage of all the resources available to us. There are several why we don't.
  • It never occurs to us. We don't see others using these resources, so we don't do it either. Our parents didn't do it. Our friends are not doing it. Nobody where we work is doing it.
  • It's inconvenient. We'd have to go to the bookstore, library, or local college. We'd have to drive across town to a meeting. We'd have to take time away from television, family, or friends.
  • Asking others for advice or information puts up against our fear of rejection. We are afraid to take the risk.
  • Connecting the dots in a new way would means change and change-even when it is in our best interest-is uncomfortable. Who wants to be uncomfortable.
  • Connecting the dots means hard work, and frankly, most people don't want to work that hard.
Most people drive through life with their psychological emergency brake on. They hold on to negative images about themselves or suffer the effects of powerful experiences they haven't yet released. They stay in comfort zone entirely of their own making. They maintain in accurate beliefs about reality or harbor guilt and self doubt. And when they try to achieve their goals, these negative images and pre-programmed comfort zones always cancel out their good intentions-no matter hard they try.

Successful people, on the other hand, have discovered that instead of using increased willpower on the engine to power their success, it's simply easier to 'release the brakes" by letting go of and replacing their limiting beliefs and changing their self images. Think of your comfort zone as a prison you live in- a largely self-created prison. It consists of the collection of can'ts, musts, must not's, and other unpounded beliefs formed from all the negative thoughts and decisions you have accomplished and reinforced during your lifetime.

Don't Be as Dumb as an Elephant

A baby elephant is trained at birth to be confined to a very small space. Its trainer will tie it's leg with a rope to a wooden post planted deep in the ground. This confines the baby elephant to an a area determined by the length the baby elephant will initially try to break the rope, the rope is too strong, and so the baby elephant learns that it can't break the rope. It learns that it has to stay in the area defined by the length of the rope.

When the elephant grows up into a 5-ton colossus that could easily break the same rope, it doesn't even try because it learned as a baby that it couldn't break the rope in this way, the largest elephant can be confined by the peniest little rope. Perhaps this also describes you- still trapped in a comfort zone by something as punny and weak as the small rope and stake that controls the elephant, except your rope is made up of the limiting beliefs and images that you received and took on when you were young.

Your comfort zone works the same way the thermostat in your home works, when the temperature in the room approaches the edge of the thermal range you have set, the thermostat sends an electrical signal to the furn es or the air-conditioner  to tern it on or off. As the temperature in the room begins to change, the electrical signals continue to respond to the changes and keep the temperature within the desired range.

Similarly, you have an internal psychological thermostat that regulates your level of performance in the world. Instead of electrical signals, your internal performance regulator uses discomfort signals to keep you within your comfort zone. As your behavior or performance begins to approach the edge of that zone, you begin to feel uncomfortable. If what you are experiencing is outside the self-image you unconsciously hold, your body will send signals of mental tension and physical discomfort to your system. To avoid the discomfort, you unconsciously pull yourself back into your comfort zone.

Life is like a combination lock; your job is to find the right numbers, in the right orders. So you can have anything you want- Brian Tracy

"The principles always work if you work the principles". All of these same results are also possible for you. I know for a fact that you, too, can attain unimagined levels of success. Why? Because the principles and techniques always work- all you have to do is put them to work for you.

The fact is that anyone can consistently produce these kinds of results on a regular basis. All you have to do is decide what it is you want, believe you deserve it and practice the success principles.

The fundamentals are the same for all the people and all professions- even if you're currently unemployed. It doesn't matter if your goals are to be the top sales persons, become a leading architect, get all A's in school. Lose weight, buy your dreams home, or become a world class professional athlete, a rock star, an award winning journalist, a multimillionaire, or a successful entrepreneur- the principles and strategies are the same. And if you learn them, assimilate them, and apply them with disciplines every day, they will transform your life beyond your wildest dream.

You can't hire someone else to do your push-up for you.
You must do them yourself if you are to get any value out of them. Whether it is exercising, stretching, meditating, reading, studying, learning a new language, creating a mastermind group, setting measurable goals, visualizing success, repeating affirmation, or practicing a new skill, you are going to have to do it. No one else can do these things for you.

A warning: Of course, any change requires sustained effort to overcome years worth of internal and external resistance. Initially you may find yourself getting very excited about all this new information. You may feel a new found sense of hope and enthusiasm for the new vision of your life as it can be. This is good. But be forewarned that you may feel frustration at not knowing about all of this earlier, anger at your parents and teachers for not teaching you these important concepts at home and at school, or anger at yourself for having already learned many of these things and not having acted on them.

Just take a deep breath and realize this is all part of the process of your journey. Everything in the past has actually been perfect. Everything in your past has led you to this trans formative moment in time. Everything in your past has led you to this trans formative moment moment in time. Everyone- including you- has always done the best they could with what they know at the time. Now you are about to know more celeberate your new awareness! It is about to set you free.

You may also find that there will be times when you wonder, why isn't all of this working faster? Why haven't I already achieved my goal? Why aren't I reach already? Why don't I have the man or women of my dreams by now? When am I going to achieve my ideal weight? Success take time, effort, perseverance, and patience. If you apply all of the principles and techniques you will achieve your goals. You will realize your dreams. But it won't happen overnight.

It's natural in the achievement of any goal to come upon obstacles, to feel temporarily stuck on a plateau. This is normal. Anyone who has ever played a musical instrument, participated in a sport, or practiced a martial art  yo make what feels like a sudden leap to a higher level of proficiency. Be patient. Hang in their. Don't give up. You will break through. The principles always work.
