A simple practice for using your mind to acheive your goals.
Become an Observer
Now make a list of your thoughts, feelings and beliefs related to your target goals in these areas. Do you believe it is possible or likely you will live the life of your dreams? Do you believe you deserve to be, do and have anything? What is the general flavor of your internal conversation? Specifically notice and write down how much of your internal conversation is focused on attracting what you want by thinking and feeling optimistically about it. Compare this with how much is focused on aspects that you are dissatisfied with, feel discouraged about or wish were different in your life. This is a simple clarifying practice of identifying what you want and then noticing your current point of attraction about it.
