One of the most important things I discovered about how we work is that we do not get very far by using
force. By pushing our way into things, forcing ourselves to act, we destroy much more than we fix. We fail more often than we succeed.
It is as though we are at the helm of an awesome creative power,
which we can direct, but not by force.
It takes something else to move this great power we have into action. When we discover what it is and how to
do it, everything changes. We achieve goal after goal with ease. As
though we are on total autopilot.
Have you ever heard these statements?
* Keep Your Eye On The Ball…
* Think About What You Want, Not What You Don’t Want…
* Think Of The End Result…
I’m sure you have heard one or more of those. But have we really
listened to this advice?
Have we truly imagined the end result of our goal with such clarity and
detail that our brain and nervous system was saturated with the
For most, the answer is no…
Most people never clearly define what the end result is in the first
place. And if they happen to, they do not imagine if often enough, in every
Here’s what happens when we do imagine our end result often enough,
with clarity and detail…
There is a critical point were the brain and nervous system takes
over. After a certain point they literally "take up" the vision
as a goal and begin to work on it automatically.
As you do this, you will find there is no need for force and strained
efforts. You will suddenly begin to get what I call "inspirational
energy" to act, to do a certain thing or make a certain move at the right time.
Benefits, The End Results, Are
The "Fuel" Of The Brain And Nervous System…
In the same way, Fear is also Fuel for the brain and nervous system. We could call it a Negative Fuel but it’s a fuel nevertheless. Let someone get in a situation where a
terrible thought, "end result", takes over their mind and
watch what they do. Energy rushes
through their system and they will try to move heaven and earth to avoid or get away from the end
result they are imagining. Which usually means they will run dead
into exactly what they were trying to avoid.
Sadly, many people run their entire lives on the Fuel of Fear…instead
of the Fuel of Benefits…
If you will simply begin to imagine the benefits of a thing you want in
detail, there will be no force needed to achieve it. You won’t
have to push and strive to accomplish the goal.
What you will find is that you are literally "pulled" toward the
goal. Things begin to happen automatically. You suddenly get that perfect idea while driving home from work.
That personal hang up begins to clear up on its own without any interference from you.
We must focus on the end result, the benefits, long enough for the
brain and nervous system to take hold of them. In many cases the effects are immediate. The energy to act comes
within moments and we wonder why we have been forcing ourselves all this
Are you overweight with no desire whatsoever to exercise?
Truly imagine what it would be like to be slim and fit. Imagine the
toned body, the looks from
others, the compliments, the confidence and the power. Just truly do this
every detail. No force, no effort.
Just totally enjoy the vision.
If you honestly do this, what do you feel like now?
The energy to "do" comes immediately doesn’t it. You now feel like
getting up and moving.
It is never that we do not have the energy or the inspiration to do a
thing. It is that we do not envision the benefits and end results of what we want enough to create that energy and inspiration.
