One of my favorite and most helpful authors is Dr. Robert Anthony. His advice on how to utilize the power of the mind has been a great help to me and many others in bringing life to a higher level.
I am on Dr. Anthony’s mailing list, and I regularly receive gems of information from him. This is one of the best yet, and I wanted to share it with you. Here’s to your success : )
I wanted to take a moment to say Happy New Year to you and yours…
Are ready for a great New Year?
To help you get off to a running start I would like you to consider changing
your perception of WHAT SUCCESS MEANS TO YOU!
As I mature and have a better understanding of how things work, I have
come to understand that HOW WE MEASURE SUCCESS will determine our
happiness, or lack of it.
We tend to MEASURE SUCCESS in relation to achieving our goals. In other
words, we set a goal and if we achieve it, we are happy and satisfied. If we
don’t, we feel like a failure. This creates anxiety, fear and sometimes even depression.
You will never be happy or satisfied if you keep focusing on what you DON’T HAVE,
or what you have NOT ACHIEVED.
Instead, consider this…
The way to MEASURE SUCCESS, and still be happy and satisfied, is to look at
WHERE YOU HAVE COME FROM.
In other words, LOOK BACK and notice how you have IMPROVED in any area of your
life – even if it is a VERY SMALL improvement.
If you LOOK BACK and celebrate your INCREMENTAL IMPROVEMENTS, the next
steps become so much easier, because you are happy and satisfied right now.
So, if you did not achieve everything you wanted last year, when you finish reading this,
take a look at the INCREMENTAL IMPROVEMENTS you have made and give yourself
a pat on the back. Make a short list and then give yourself some credit instead of focusing
on what went wrong or did not happen.
Seriously. I mean it. MAKE THAT LIST. I’m watching you!
Start this New Year with the feeling that you have already started to make some incremental
improvements and that you are ready for more. NEVER, I repeat NEVER, judge yourself.
Give yourself credit for what you have accomplished – no matter how small those accomplishments
This will get you off to great start this year because you will START OFF with a sense of
ACCOMPLISHMENT instead of a sense of failure – which is never useful. If you build on your
incremental accomplishments you can do EVEN BETTER this year than you did last year.
Before I sign off I want to share a quote of mine with you…
“Any dream that can pass through one’s screen of logic into the Subconscious and is earnestly
desired, can be obtained”.
– Dr. Robert Anthony
Once you give up all the “logical reasons” why something cannot work for you and allow your
new dream or goal to enter your Subconscious, it’s an idea whose time has come. If you truly
desire it and your Subconscious agrees to it – it’s yours!
Cheers For a Great New Year,
Dr. Robert Anthony
