Now that you know how to use “desire” to correctly identify what you really want you are going to learn how to restructure your thinking so you get into alignment with your newly formed goal.
In order to do this we will quickly revisit the concept of desire (don’t worry you have already done the hard bit – this bit is fun).
The Whys Have ItWhen you completed the first step in the D.R.E.A.M.S. System you will have realized what you truly desire. You will have also formed this desire into a goal.
In this section you are going change how you think in connection to that goal. In order to do that it is essential that you know why you want to achieve the goal.
Many success “gurus” tell us that knowing the “whys” of goals is a powerful tool for staying motivated. Although this is true it is not the main reason for identifying those “whys”.
When you know why you want something it becomes extremely easy to see yourself in possession of it. This makes visualization a breeze!
Let’s take an example:
Jane decides she wants to start her own successful online business that will earn at least $200,000 in profit within its first year.
Did she come up with this goal arbitrarily?
No. Jane came to this specific goal by identifying her “whys”.
So how did she use her “whys” to create this particular goal?
Well Jane has specific things that she wants to achieve in her personal life and she has identified that in order to reach those objectives she needs at least $200,000.
She has calculated that in order to visit her favourite world travel destinations she needs at least $50,0000. She requires a further $150,000 to buy that new house she’s always wanted, mortgage free.
After some thought she realized that to gain a sum of $200,000 within a 1 year period she would need to start her own business. If she were to try to achieve that goal through her current employment it would require a 2 year course of study to launch her towards that pay scale. It may take even longer if she sought a new career move.
She also realized that if she worked in a corporate job she would not have access to the time needed to pursue her travel goals. For this reason she also identified that it would be best to start an online business that uses her unique skill set and experience as they would give her the opportunity to travel and work simultaneously.
Can you see how Jane used her “whys” to help her structure her goal?
Using The “Whys”Jane has some very specific desires she wants to achieve and has used them to narrow down a goal that is business related and monetary in nature.
However starting a business that earns her $200,000 profit in her fist year may be her goal but the “whys” behind that goal are the most important things to her not the actual goal itself; the goal merely signifies the successful attainment/completion of her “whys”.
Whenever Jane is performing tasks that are designed to help her move closer to her goal fulfillment she realises exactly why she taking action to move her towards the attainment of that goal. It is not just a successful business that is driving her. It is not just $200,000 profit in her first business year that is her motivation. These objectives are just vehicles to achieve her real aims – but they are vitally important so she has an objective in mind and a destination to reach.
The important point to take away with you is that Jane knows why she is taking action to attain her goal and reach her set destination.
Likewise, once you have identified your own personal “whys” you can use them to not only motivate yourself to keep taking action towards your success but you can use them to help reprogram your subconscious mind and command it to manifest your goals into reality.
VisualizationWhen you know why you want to achieve a particular and specific goal it is very easy to visualize the successful outcome of that goal.
By seeing yourself enjoying the “fruits” of your goal achievement you can quickly start to change your mental attitude around that goal. This will keep you motivated and also help you to visualize the successful outcome of your endeavors.
However there is a much deeper and more powerful reason for identifying the “whys” and staying focused on them.
Not taking this step seriously is the root cause of failure as Wallace D. Wattles identified in his classic book The Science of Getting Rich (free digital download for my readers) and which I will explain in much more detail in step 4.
If you are like me you will be ultra excited, as I was when I first stumbled upon this information, to find out why you have failed so many times before and how to stop it ever happening again but please do not be tempted to skip ahead. You need this time to build the foundation necessary to avoid future failures. Master each step in turn and I promise you no goal will be achievable for you.
Thinking in a Certain WayWattles refers to 2 key concepts in his success philosophy that are incorporated into the D.R.E.A.M.S. System.
1. Thinking in a Certain Way.
2. Acting in a Certain Way.
These 2 concepts are interwoven and linked very strongly. You will find in step 4 the reason for your past failures and the remedy for it. However, in order to use that powerful information you must understand all the preceding steps especially this one!
When Wattles tells his readers to “think in a certain way” he is actually just telling them to think of their goals as having been already accomplished.
This is not a new concept. If you have studied any personal development, self improvement or metaphysical material you will be familiar with the idea of visualizing your goals.
The difference between Wattle’s approach and modern day teachings is that Wattle’s proposed you spend as much time as possible contemplating your goal – not just spending 10 minutes per day visualizing it.
If you want to be successful this step is vital.
Although Wattles covers the subject in great detail with the understanding of a Master Manifestor I will give it a modern twist to his teachings that will explode the results you get with it.
The Problem With Seeing Things in the “NOW”The subconscious mind has no concept of time. It experiences things in the “NOW”. This is why we are told to visualize our goals as having already been accomplished.
By thinking of your goals as having already been accomplished now you “fool” your subconscious mind into believing it is so. Then when contradictory evidence presents itself your subconscious mind feels that your world is out of sync with your true inner reality and immediately goes to work to change your outer circumstances to match your inner vision.
There is one problem with this process though: thinking of your goals as already accomplished may sound like it’s easy but the reality of it, as I’m sure you already know, is very different.
It is easy enough to visualize our goals as having already been accomplished with our eyes closed while we are relaxing on a chair or lying in bed but, as Wattles has instructed us, we need to contemplate our goals as much as possible even as we go about our normal daily activities. This is where problems begin.
When we are interacting in the real world it soon becomes pretty clear to us that our goals have not been accomplished.
If you try to convince yourself that your goal has already been achieved while everything around you is screaming at you that this is not the case your subconscious mind will quickly rebel and start firing thoughts at you which confirm the “reality” of your current situation. This can be counterproductive and actually lead to the manifestation of the exact opposite of what you want.
Have you ever tried to visualize yourself as rich while all around you are unpaid bills, empty cupboards and you are driving a car that should not be on the road? Believe me it doesn’t work!
So how do we continually contemplate our goals in a positive way that helps to manifest them, as Wattles informs us to do, without violating the directive to think of them as being already accomplished?
It is actually easier than you may think.
Restructuring Your ThoughtsIn order to successfully keep your goal in mind in a positive way while also “fooling” the subconscious mind into thinking it has already been accomplished you will use the following simple technique.
Twice per day set aside about 10 – 15 minutes to visualize your goal in its entirety. Sit or lie down in a comfortable place where you will not be disturbed.
Close your eyes and relax your body. If you want to use self hypnosis or a meditation technique/recording to help you relax that is fine.
Once you are relaxed start to visualize your goal. See it as already accomplished. Predetermine some outcome that could only occur if your goal had already been achieved and use that as your visualization.
Perform your visualization once in the morning after you awaken and once at night just before you fall asleep.
These will be the only visualizations you must do. If you want to do more and have the time that is fine but 2 is all that you need.
Now take your phone, or watch, and set it to chime (or buzz) every hour. This will be your reminder to think about your goal.
Every time your reminder goes off just give a thought about your goal. Simply think about it.
You do not need to see it in the present tense.
You simple think about the goal you are working towards and the “whys” that are the driving force behind it.
Just remind yourself that you are moving closer to attaining your goal each day. It may not be manifest now but it will be soon because you are talking action (step 4) to get you there.
This simple act will keep the goal firmly in your thoughts and drive it deep into the subconscious mind. This is reinforcement for your bi-daily visualizations and is also an essential ingredient for making step 4 work effortlessly.
By using this simple technique you will completely eliminate the root cause of all your past failures and by using it in a very special way, as outlined in step 4, you will ensure you never fail again.
I know the above is a bold statement to make and you may be skeptical about it but I assure you that it is true. I urge you to test it for yourself using these 6 Simple Success Steps That NEVER Fail and the D.R.E.A.M.S. System that is based on them.
It is important you use this process as described. If you wish you can use aids/tools to help you do it correctly.
I personally do it in conjunction with a custom subliminal recording that has personalized embedded commands connected directly to my current goals. Although using such a recording is not necessary for success it does give you an added advantage and makes the whole process a lot easier. It also helps to reprogram the subconscious mind faster.
The point of your hourly reminder is to keep you focused on what you are working towards as this will make every action step you take successful regardless of what those action steps are. (This is explained in more detail in step 4).
Contemplation of your goal throughout the day will not only change how you think about that goal but it will also force your subconscious mind to give you ideas about how you can achieve your goal. It will also force it to start bringing you synchronicities, or co-incidences, that open up avenues for receiving your goal.
Sending Your Thoughts Into Turbo DriveNow you know how to change the way you think about your goal I am going to teach you how to drive your visual images deep into the subconscious mind so that this powerful aspect of your mind can actually create a successful outcome for you without much conscious effort on your part.
