Progress not Change

We can all use a boost in life when our own motivation and drive starts to dwindle.

With the seasons changing and people catching colds or the seasonal flu, it is easy to find yourself in a demotivated state; wanting to snuggle under the covers for a bit longer and delaying your day.

It’s All About Rituals

I have been practising this Hour of Power for a couple of weeks now and even though I listen to the program constantly, I have to say that I still find it still difficult to do this daily.

Tony Robbins’ Hour of Power

  1. Breathing and moving to change your state
  2. Listing a list of things you are grateful for and visualize what you want to achieve/acquire;
  3. Incantations and Rituals

Breathe in through your nose for 4 breaths and out through your mouth for 4 breaths. Do this for at least 5 minutes, you should find yourself in a relaxed state and your mind is still.

Next focus on allnthebthings you are grateful for. Really appreciate the emotions and feelings that you experiencing…Change the way you feel by changing how you move. As you are moving, shout out incantations aloud….Everyday, in every way I’m feeling _________ and __________. Feel free to fill in the blanks, Tony uses ‘stronger and stronger’ but you can use whatever words you need to.

Everyone is always talking about how they need to change. You could do nothing and things will still change. Tony explains that change is automatic, progress is not. How true is that? What a powerful statement.

So here I am focusing on progress and the habits that I must adopt in order to achieve progress.

Am I Comfortable? Do I Not Want to Improve and Achieve Massive Success?

So what I have been doing all this time? A few weeks ago I attended a Christian Healing Mass; to be honest I didn’t know what to expect. It was pretty overwhelming, seeing people almost being ‘possessed’ by the Power of the Holy Spirit.There were some individuals swaying back and forth, some that were crying and I was a bit intimidated by it all. The person that led the service was a famous Korean Evangelist who had just completed a tour in Asia.

I tried my best to just take it all in and learn what I could from the experience. It was more like a Seminar as it lasted a little over three hours. At the end of the service, the minister asked anyone who would like a blessing to proceed to the front. One by one, the minister blessed each individual; some of them fainting as they received their blessing. When it was my turn, I was a bit nervous and worried about what he would say. He said something that has stuck with me…”You have the gift of administration, you have so many things that you want to accomplish in your life, but for some reason you have a lot of fear and you are very shy, and so I will remove this fear and shyness for you.” I had never met this man before today, and his words impacted me in a way, I cannot explain.

Never the Same

Since that day I have been almost forcing myself to just do things, to build my confidence and prove that I can do it. It sounds a bit crazy, and seems like I am always writing about success or my lack of success, but I believe success is a work in progress…..never ending, ever-evolving and achieved by hard work, discipline and the right attitude.

I know in my mind and in my heart, that I will be able to accomplish my goals and reach a whole different level of greatness, if I just continue to train my mind and work hard.

How do you motivate yourself?

What tricks have you played on your mind?

Stay strong and beautiful!
