This week, our challenge is to create a vision board. I have one, and I recommend you have one because the law of attraction works. It works, but only if we work. Envisioning what we want to achieve is only the first step toward making it a reality. “Everything is created twice, first in the mind and then in reality.”  Robin Sharma

The power of attraction, having a vision and staying connected with it daily, is misunderstood by many people. Its power lies in an area of our brain called the reticular activating system (RAS). Our RAS determines what we notice and what we ignore in our environment. If we didn’t ignore most of what we see, hear, and feel in our environment, we would experience sensory overload.

When we set a goal, and we have strong emotional intent, we trigger the RAS. Our brain becomes incredibly acute at noticing anything in our surroundings that could help us move forward. When we stay connected to our vision, daily, we keep ourselves on course. We don’t get caught up in the momentum of other people’s demands on us. Every day we look for ways to take another step, no matter how small, towards our goal. Continue reading “The Habit: Week-13 (Create a Vision Board)”

WHY WE CANNOT RELY ON DISCIPLINE OR MOTIVATION ALONE

We all need motivation and discipline in our lives because we are creatures of both emotion and logic. The more disciplined we behave, the more rationally we behave. If we were all completely logic driven creatures, everyone would be disciplined in all areas of life. We know that isn’t the case. Even the most successful people have areas of their life where they lack discipline. They are successful in the areas where they cultivated discipline, and failures in the areas they became slaves to their emotions.

We are both logical and emotional, but our actions are fueled more by our emotions. That is why we need to keep our emotional tanks full of daily doses of motivation. If our emotional tank is empty, it doesn’t matter how logical our goal is. If you have big dreams, but you aren’t obsessed with their achievement. If your necessity level isn’t sufficient, you’ll fail to do what is required. Continue reading “WHY WE CANNOT RELY ON DISCIPLINE OR MOTIVATION ALONE”
