How To Make Affirmations Work To Achieve Your Goals
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I have long been a student of personal achievement and have often wondered why so many people with big dreams and lofty aspirations start out in the beginning with great enthusiasm and energy to achieve a personal goal but then fissile out and become cynical and discouraged not only about their goal but about personal achievement in general. In fact , many of the great motivators of out time, like Tony Robbins and others, have pondered this question and have not come up with any definitive answers. It’s still a mystery to them as to why some people take their material to heart and soar but why simultaneously, so many other people who start using their material just seem to fade away without it never taking root long enough to produce any kind of real fruit.

Allow me to begin to offer an explanation that I have never seen in print before. Hopefully it will help you as it is helping me to achieve the goals that are important to you. Let me first warn you though that I can’t write as elaborately as I would like because I run my own delivery service and my time allotment for this project is limited. I have taken on the challenge from an affiliate marketor name Kyle to write 30 articles in 30 days in order to start learning the business of affiliate marketing. I really don’t have the time to do this but since affiliate marketing is something I really want to do I have to find the time.

You’ve heard the saying that “if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing well” Not always, sometimes “if something is worth doing it’s worth doing poorly”. Few people ever do anything well in the beginning. Bob Dylan once wrote “There is no success like failure, and failure is no success at all”. What I believe that means is you learn from your mistakes, no mistakes no learning, no learning no success. Wayne Gretzky once said “you miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”. My philosophy is if you really want to do something start now, don’t wait, do the best you can and if it aint perfect don’t worry about it. You’ll learn by doing more than from anything else.

So why do so many people who start out so enthusiastically fail to achieve their goals in the final analysis.

I believe it has to do with the subconscious mind.

Look, let’s say someone goes to a seminar on motivation of some kind and they come out all revved up and ready to go. They got their goals all written down and they are as serious as a heart attack about getting down to business. But then the enthusiasm of the moment fades away, life happens, some serious obstacle appears and before you know it they are back to where they were, just struggling to survive. Why?

Because for a couple of hours or for even a couple of days at that seminar they were being reprogrammed to think and act differently, to be more positive, more resourceful, than they had been in the past..

BUT IT WAS ONLY for a couple of hours, only a couple of days!

Before that seminar they had been being programmed their entire life by their life experiences; for years and years on a subconscious level to be and act the way they are now... And if they have suffered any kind of trauma of any kind (which many of us in this day and age have to a greater or lesser degree), they have feelings and memories that cloud their interpretation of reality and of what’s possible, without them even being aware of it. And a couple of hours or a couple of days of happy talk and “you can do it” isn’t going to overwrite that. .It just aint going to happen!. The subconscious mind will rebel – in essence what it will say is that “this new preprogramming is BS”, it’s going to say “your forgetting reality pal, you’re trying to pretend that all that crap that’s been mye reality for the past 100 years can just magically be made now to disappear. It aint gonna happen buddy!”

The problem is, that your conscious mind on the other hand buys the new input 100%. The conscious mind is ready to go, ready for action and often isn’t even aware that there is a Manchurian candidate lying in wait in your subconscious mind; ready, willing and quite able to sabotage and derail your best laid plans.

So how do you expose the Manchurian candidate lurking below your awareness and get your subconscious mind to heal?

Stay tuned for Article two, soon to be posted, if not tomorrow by the end of the week, I promise.
