What we think, feel, say to ourselves and others, and believe to be true creates our reality. Every day, we each choose whether we create our reality by design or by default. Based on the “CRAVE Your Goals!” program, here are five steps to create the reality you desire and deserve.
1) Clean Out the Clutter.
Clutter distracts and confuses us and drains our energy. It often gets in the way of our goals. There’s a universal law that states: The universe abhors a vacuum. So, when we clear away the physical clutter, as well as the emotional, mental and technical clutter, we make room for the universe to fill it with what serves our highest good.
2) Raise Your Energy.
The universal law states: Energy attracts like energy. We are all energy beings and we all vibrate at different levels at different times. Vibration is just another word for feelings and emotions. When we vibrate at a high level, governed by love and trust, it’s positive and constructive and we will attract people and circumstances that vibrate at that same level. To increase and maintain a high vibration, commit to love and nurture yourself. Eat healthy, exercise, enjoy a hobby, play, seek out positive people, practice random acts of kindness, give thanks and smile more often. Commit to make your own list and schedule these activities into your day until they become habits.
3) Affirm Success.
Affirmations are powerful statements to remind us what we know to be true, despite what others may say or when our own ego plants that seed of doubt. It’s a great way to communicate with our powerful subconscious mind. The most effective affirmations are short, positive and in the present.
Every top athlete has harnessed the power of visualization. However, it takes more than just seeing to get the results. Visualization is a three-step, repetitive process. To give it the power you need to succeed, engage all your senses. Then, infuse it with the positive emotions you would feel as if this was a reality – like happiness, pride and maybe even relief. Commit to seeing your goals as “real” and they soon will be.
5) Express Thanks.
What you focus on expands. It’s a universal law. That’s why it’s so important to cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Commit to write in a gratitude journal a few nights a week, listing all the things you’re thankful for at work – like doing what you love – and adding at least one unique entry each time – like completing that major project ahead of schedule. That programs you to become more aware of what’s going right.
By committing to CRAVE your goals, you will enhance your journey and accelerate your success.
