The most valuable asset you have is YOU! You and you alone will determine how successful you will be in life and in all areas of your life. You should always be training yourself to be successful in everything you do. Just how do you do this you are probably asking?

People train their muscles with exercise and your mind needs its own type of strength training as well to become stronger. Make a decision today to start training your mind.

You want to develop a daily routine to work your mind. The old saying “if you don’t use it you will use it” applies here. After a workout your muscles need rest and so does your mind muscle needs rest as well. When your mind is at rest, what you have done infiltrates your thoughts and it will change how you think.

I find that through learning and meditation is one of the most effective ways to strengthen your mind on a daily basis. You fuel your mind by reading books or listening to audio’s as well as attending seminars and different classes. There is so much information available today on the Internet so there is no reason not to learn.

Make it a habit to learn something new every day. Start with your business if you have one. Get your hands on and read everything you can about your industry, customers, competition, challenges in your industry etc.

If you have a job and are driving to work every day that is one of the best classrooms on this planet. You can get a college education by listening to audio’s on your way to work every day as well is on your way home from work.

I I set aside about an hour a day to listen to my favorite motivational speaker or a mentor. You do not have to do this all in the same hour as you could listen to 15 minutes here in 15 minutes there.

If you say you do not have an extra hour then make an extra hour. You could wake up an hour earlier and listen to some of it then. Go to bed an hour later or stop watching an hour of television at night.

Maybe when that speaker or mentor comes to your area attend the lecture or class they are holding. Our mind is like a supercomputer with an infinite hard drive. It will never run out of space no matter how much you learn.

As you continually strengthen and expand your mind you also want to give it time to rest deep relaxation exercises. When your body feels tired and exhausted you want to rest. You are tired and weary your body usually cannot function properly. Well, your mind reacts the same way.

I suggest creating a library of audio meditations. You can usually get recommendations from a yoga teacher or studio in your area. Your brain will then get the rest that it needs while listening to these audios. Your body and your mind will be thankful that you are doing this and you will reap the rewards later on. You will find yourself having more energy and thinking more clearly. You will find that your big ideas begin to manifest themselves.

 

THIS WEEK'S ACTION STEP

So here is the action step for this week with an exercise to help get you started on strengthening your mind.

I remember growing up that it was cool to be in the groove but I’ve learned later on in life that it is better to be in the flow.

Ask yourself this question. Am I stuck in a daily grind in routine? Do I do the same things day in and day out and week after week, month after month?

Don’t you think it is time to get out of your comfort zone and become the adventurous and dynamic person that you’ve always dreamed of becoming? Are your dreams buried in boxes along with all your childhood toys?

I know some people will probably tell you to grow up as you need to make a living now. They’ll tell you you can act like a child when you retire. Will I am telling you that you can climb Mount Everest and still pay bills at the same time!

I want you to remember what your life was like before you got into that rut. What were you passionate about what was your burning desire? What did you want to be when you grew up? You want to be a baseball player or a teacher? Did you want to travel foreign nations or to become a great artist? Did you want to go on one of those African safaris or become a writer and write novels?

Write down as many things as you can think of your notebook as to what did you want to be when you grew up or what do you want to do now. Then choose just one dream and go after it with the passion that you once had. These things can be big or small. So let’s say that you want to learn a new language. For arguments sake let’s say it’s Italian. You can buy audios on how to teach yourself Italian or maybe take a class. If you don’t have the money for the class start saving your money for it. You can also buy a book on Italy and learn more about the culture in the history of that country. Just keep your big dream on the front burner and boiling and stir it vigorously on a daily basis.

Once you realize this dream then choose another one go after that. Keep going down the list and tackle each one until every single one of your dreams has come true. Then just step into a new you day. Keep reaching out to greater happiness, health, friendship and love and greater prosperity and joy within yourself.

Remember, Life isn't about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself. It is time to create the best life possible!

Until next week
