Follow these instructions to have the life of your dreams

In the last weeks’ posts, I said I was going to share with you the essence of what The Roadmap to Success program teaches. And please be clear that there’s a difference between “the essence” and the whole story. If you find the essence of interest, you can access the whole story at http://www.unshackledleadership.com/the-roadmap-to-success-program.

 Summarizing what we’ve discussed over these past few weeks:

  • You were born with the same exact power to create as everyone else·        
    • You can create anything
    • And, you’re creating all the time
    • There’s never a time you’re not creating       
  • There’s not one thing you see with our eyes that’s the truth – it’s only a projection of your past thoughts
  • Your thoughts create your experiences 100% of the time
  • Your emotions are the fuel that either makes everything happen or prevents things from happening

Given what I just said, how do you put these principles into action and create the life of your dreams?:

First, I recommend you create for yourself a morning ritual which you practice daily. My experience is that most people get up, shower, get dressed, grab something to eat, perhaps, and they’re off to work. For me, this is like going into battle unarmed. You must take some time every morning to prepare yourself mentally and emotionally for what you will surely experience during the day.

Exercise, do yoga, meditate, or all of the above. For me, I take quiet time first thing every morning to meditate and then read something inspirational to get me thinking positive, uplifting thoughts. Remind yourself every day that you’re an infinitely creative being, that your thoughts create your reality and your emotions are the fuel that makes everything happen.

Then, take some time to think about what you want, imagine it all being a reality, and see if you can feel the feelings you will have when it is all a reality. But here’s the real problem. Most people don’t know what they want. If I say to an audience that I’m going to give them a magic lantern and when they rub the lantern a genie is going to pop out and offer to give them everything they could ever want, and then I ask the audience: how many people would be able to tell the genie exactly what they want in complete detail, there is never a time when anyone raises their hand.

On the contrary, people are very good at telling you what they don’t want. “I don’t want to work for this company, or I don’t want to live in this house, or be in this relationship, etc.” The problem is: if you focus on what you don’t want, you get more of what you don’t want.

Or, if people know what they want, they’re frustrated that they don’t have it. “How come I never get what I want? How come he has the … and I don’t?” Resentment, disappointment and frustration are like a farmer throwing acid on his crops. All of those fearful emotions stop any possibility of having what you want.

So before you get back to whatever you were doing when you started reading this, get a clean sheet of paper, put your name at the top, and immediately below write: My Highest Vision. Then start to write. Create a picture of exactly what your life would look like if all of your hopes and dreams became a reality. Think about what your life would look like, what would you be doing, what you would see, where you would be living, how you would you feel, about everything. I have detailed instructions on how to do this. If you would like them, shoot me a quick e mail at scott@unshackledleadership.com and I’ll send them to you.
