The stories you tell yourself will determine what you believe, and what you believe will determine what you see. Together what you believe and what you see determines the things that are important to you.
So, what’s important to you becomes the reason why you do the things you do.
If you’re not doing the things you know you need to do, the reason is, that there’s no motive.
A good example is when people commit a crime, the first thing police officers look for is a motive. They look for someone who’s got the biggest motive and biggest reason to engage in this criminal act.
If you want to be the very best at what you do, but you’re not pursuing the things that will make you the best at what you do, you clearly have no motive.
There’s not enough of a reason ‘why’ to get busy doing what absolutely needs to be done.
You’ve either got to consciously search for and find the ‘why’, or you program yourself to make it important.
You can literally do that if you chose to.
In 2001 I came up with an entire list of suggestions. I just recited them every day. I literally programmed myself to do what I’m doing today.
I just knew this was where I was going in my life, but I didn’t have all the skills to get there. So how did I get the skills? I programmed myself.
The key is I did it consciously. I didn’t allow my environment to do it for me. I chose it consciously and I did what I needed to do because it was important to me, very important.
Want to change? Do something about it.
It’s time to reprogram yourself.
