What Does An Extraordinary Life Look Like To You: Mastering Thought (Part 2)

The first step to achieve anything is to define what you want now, what’s next, and what’s preventing you from having what you want.

In the post titled Why We Need Daily Personal Development we talked about the Raticular Activating System and why clarity is power.

In this post we will go over 3 questions to ask yourself to immediately turn that powerful part of your brain.

  1. What does an extraordinary quality of life look like for you NOW?
  2. What is the next level for you? 
  3. What is preventing you?

To maximize the effects of these questions, I highly suggest you write down your answers in a journal.

It is said that writing down your goals makes them 1000 times more likely to be achieved.

You can even use this website as an example of that, for years I’ve wanted to start my own website; three months after I finally wrote it on paper Becoming More Consulting was born.

1) What does an extraordinary quality of life look like for you NOW?

Write down in your journal, what an extraordinary life would look like for you right now.

Would you have more money?

Would you savor every moment as if it were your last? Would you be physically healthier?

Mentally healthier?

Would you have more control over your emotional patterns?

2) What’s the next level for you?

What would you change in your life?

What would you transform?

Your relationships?

Your finances?

Would you like to loose weight?

Gain muscle?

3) What’s preventing you from having what you want?

This is arguably one of the most important things to ask yourself.

What are you willing to give up/what are you willing to no longer do in order to have the extraordinary life you deserve?

What limiting belief is preventing you from achieving your goals?

What emotional pattern (i.e. binge eating) is holding you back?

What dominating thought is stopping you from enjoying the life you truly deserve?

Bonus: What are 2 thoughts you have daily that stress you out?

What are 2 thoughts you experience daily that stress you out? Not what thought you have weekly or monthly, but daily.

Is it that you don’t have the capital?

Is it that you don’t have the time?

My thoughts:

The bonus question I threw in here is an excellent question to ask yourself, because many people struggle with some form of dominating thought that derails their progress. Identifying the thought pattern separates you from the thought and allows you to override your programming to make a better decision.

I’d like to part ways today by saying that I truly love and appreciate your attention. I write these posts with the hope and faith that you will use them just as I use them to become a better person, strive for more, and contribute to others.
