“Experts on the science of success know that the brain is a goal-seeking organism. Whatever personal goals you give to your subconscious mind, it will work night and day to achieve them.” – Jack Canfield
It’s true. Your brain will actually help you out. But you have to provide a direction for your brain, in order for it to do its work.
That means you have to have Goals. What are you aiming for? What do you want to achieve? Personally? Professionally? What skills do you want to master? What experiences do you want to have? What material things do you want? What do you want to do for your community? Your family?
Give your brain Goals, and it will help you in achieving them.
“We live in a distracting world, and it’s not getting any better. New information crashes toward us at every moment. Technology companies work tirelessly to create products that bring convenience and delight to our days. The incentive structure hasn’t changed: usage creates data, data sells ads, ubiquity creates demand, demand sells devices.”
Use technology to your advance, not your demise. Know why your using it, and why you’re using specific apps on your digital devices. What’s your Goal? Why is it useful? If you know why you do what you do, the choices become easier. Identify the irrational and subconscious triggers, and move beyond them.
Additionally, create barriers to distraction. Remove the distracting apps, log out and change passwords, and get proactive with your time. Rearrange your schedule, and make conscious decisions about what you do when you’ve got a few minutes to spare.
“The famous Latin phrase carpe diem, or “seize the day,” has stared at us from coffee cups and motivational posters for as long as we’ve been alive. Longer, in fact; it’s from a poem written in 23 B.C. We’ve been struggling to follow this simple anodyne command basically since the beginning of time. It was hard for the ancients, and it’s hard for us.”
The point is to keep moving, to start making progress.
It’s common among entrepreneurs and successful sales people. Wake up early, work all day long, have some times allotted to the family, and after dinner, do some more work. Late to bed, early to rise, with not enough sleep.
Everybody is different, and we think that makes the world a more interesting place. However, some habits have a detrimental effect on your health, your productivity, and thus your success.
There are some neurological issues that come along with having a night owl sleeping rhythm. Luckily, the health issues that researches see with night owls can be changed – if the habits are gradually changed.
Are you a night owl? Or are you a morning person? And how do you see it affects your productivity and success? Let us know!
What you think is reality is a lie. Our subconscious mind fools us all day, every day.
Our brains love to present reality in a way that makes sense to us, based on patterns we think we recognize and experiences we’ve had in the past. That shows up when we look at optical illusions, but it also shows up when we move through life, relationships, and work.
Just look at this image below.
“Our brains filter a constant tsunami of stimuli and piece the important parts together to recreate what we know as “reality.” And they do all this in damn-near real time—which is really impressive if you think about it. But here’s the thing: a big chunk of what we consider “reality” actually consists of our brains making guestimates.”
