People Who Get What They Want: What Are They Thinking?
Imagine being able to choose any outcome and automatically feel motivated to make it happen.
No matter what's standing in your way, you'd be so driven that you would blow right past it. You would get what you wanted every time.
Sound too good to be true?
I thought so too, until I learned a basic truth about the way we think and act. When you know how it works, it's easy to create a drive that compels you to do whatever it takes to create the kind of life you've always wanted to live.
So, what is the truth and how can we use it to get what we want? Let's find out.
THE UNDENIABLE FACT OF LIFE
It's so simple that it's often overlooked. And because most people don't realize how powerful this truth really is, most people don't know how to get what they want.
Wouldn't you agree with that statement?
Out of the millions of people who wish for a better life, only a very, very small percentage actually get what they're after.
And there's a reason: they overlook the basic truths of life and fail to use them to their advantage.
I don't want you to make the same mistakes, so let this idea really sink in...
- We do what we do for a reason. -
In other words, some kind of reason, whether good or bad, is at the root of everything we do. To the average person, this doesn't mean much, but you're not average. You'll soon be able to see just why this is such a powerful idea.
WHY DO PEOPLE FAIL?
If you asked ten people on the street why they want to change or improve their lives, I have no doubt that you would get a whole lot of,
'Huh? Um...I'm not really sure. I guess I never thought about it,'
'Because it would make me happy.'
Sorry, but that just isn't good enough. I said we do what we do for a reason, but not just any reason. It has to be a good one, a powerful one. When you put a weak reason behind any goal, it's not going to happen.
'It will make me happy,' isn't strong or specific enough. It doesn't excite or inspire. Taking into account the way our mind works, this is never going to move you to action.
And this is why so many people keep wishing for a better life instead of enjoying one. They don't have good enough reasons behind their goals.
So what's the answer?
WHAT CAN I DO?
Develop better reasons!
It's that simple. If I told you that walking across the room would radically change and improve your life in an instant - and you truly believed it - I guarantee you would be moving your feet right now.
Because the reason moved you to action. It was powerful enough to make things happen.
And that's what you need to do when it comes to your own ideas of a happier, more successful life.
Think of yourself as a master storyteller. The better story you tell about what success will do for you, the faster it will happen. When you sell yourself on what you want, you'll effortlessly and automatically be driven to make it happen.
And it all starts with a good reason.
So take some time right now to think of at least three great reasons why your goal is worth achieving. Make them specific, powerful, exciting, and inspiring.
The better the reason, the better the result. So make your reasons for success so powerful, so compelling, so enticing that you can't help but follow through with action.

Greed and Selfishness: Knowing The Difference And Loving Yourself!
I hear many people discuss how selfishness leads to greed, or that being greedy is part of being selfish. I simply have to say that "greed" and "selfishness" are not the same things.

Do More! Learn More! Create More! Live More!
Over the years in America and the west generally, the nature and means of education have dramatically changed. But it is an error to think that before the contemporary era of schooling on a mass scale that no one was deeply or broadly educated. Many in colonial America were exceptionally well-educated, yet largely self-taught or taught by a tutor or mentor. Such was the case with scientist, lawyer, theologian, statesman, patriot and father of seven, Roger Sherman.
The Art of Scripting Your Life
Writing a 'life script' is like writing a movie script. You need to create a feeling, evoke emotional responses and create the scenarios. You dream up the story, you write the lines and act it out. Why? Because you have the ability to create your life as you would like it to be. So many people live their life with the concept that they play whatever hand is dealt them. This can feel un-empowering, depressing and instill feelings of resignation and pain. You have so much more to do with your life plan than you realize.
Celebrating the Couch Potato
Ah, the couch potato, that icon of American pop culture values. Isn't that the life? Why would anyone want to exert extra energy to be productive when you can simply plop down on the couch in front of the telly and enjoy all that delicious snack food and a cool one. Why worry about a yard that needs mowing, a sink full of dishes or that overflowing garbage can. They will all be there tomorrow or even next week - you can take care of them then, or not.

Trust Your Intuition!
How many times have you been faced with a decision to make and all of a sudden you get this feeling of instinctively knowing what you must do?

How To Avoid Being Labelled As Average

Motivation By Daily Applause
One of our most powerful psychological needs is the craving to be appreciated by our fellow humans. Often the quickest way to receive the applause we desire is to keep working hard without it. Those who work hard on their own in private usually end up receiving applause in public. Just the thought of this future applause can provide powerful motivation.
Awaken The Sleeping Attitude Within You!
I have made the statement numerous times that; "You are the most important living person." Take some time and think about yourself. Look at yourself in the mirror and see how long you can stare without walking away. If less than five minutes, then you need an attitude adjustment.
Fear Emotions - Positive or Negative?
What is fear's purpose? How do you handle it? While I am working in my pest control business, I meet people on an almost daily basis who are influenced by negative fear thoughts regarding pests invading their premises. A good size spider, rat, or unexpected insect can set someone off pretty quickly, and literally immobilize them. It consumes their thoughts to the point where they have trouble thinking about anything else.
