The Secret Truth to Being Successful

It has been ingrained in me from a very young age that success in any form, comes from hard work. This belief is what got me through my Common Entrance Examination when I was ten, got me to my high grades at the CXC level when I was fifteen and what saw me burn right out in college, only to fight for supremacy in University.

It is a concept that has also seen me through many days at my various jobs and even more so as a budding entrepreneur.

However, it is also a concept that I realized I grossly misinterpreted and drove too far, too deeply. The concept of hard work suggests to me sweat, blood, tears and an unrelenting drive to achieve my goal. The flip side of that being, there is little room for fun, happiness, mistakes or patience, things I realized I needed for a healthy life.

It is a concept that I have grappled with for years because if I was not successful in something, then it meant I needed to work even harder, and had to make even more sacrifices, which always felt wrong but necessary.

Those sacrifices often times came in the form of spending time with loved ones, taking breaks, taking good care of my health and body and becoming even more of a workaholic who had nothing to show for it.

It meant I had to do more, dig in my heels further, cut out all distractions and drive myself ever onward towards success.

Success meant hard work.

It’s only later in my life, late twenties really that I began to understand that hard work did not actually mean eye-strain, sleepless nights, fighting to work with people who did not want to work for me or sacrificing time with love ones .

 It did not mean self-punishment or being super unhealthy. In fact it turns out that hardwork meant having a new school of thought, where I needed to do less, which allowed me to have even more.

As an entrepreneur, I listened to many webinars on strategy, on building up my business and all the things that I absolutely had to have in place or guaranteed failure of my business, and I am here to say that all of that was absolutely wrong.

In life it’s not about having the right strategy, it’s not about working yourself to death and it is definitely not about robbing yourself of happiness.  What it is about is fueling your high energy meter.

Psychologist, mindset coaches, spiritual healers and intuitive entrepreneurs all know the truth behind living your best life and being successful.

In short, they all know one secret truth:

How to Trust Your Intuition

Have you ever had a thought or a feeling that came to from seemingly ‘nowhere’ followed by an urge to go do the thing, and you can feel your body instinctively react to go do the thing?

That’s what is called an ‘ intuitive nudge’, and all of the time, if you choose to not follow the nudge, life becomes just a tad more complicated and your mind, reproaches you by replaying that thought or feeling you got which you ignored.

The thing is, it’s not easy to trust these feelings or thoughts in your body, because simply put, we are not taught how to, or even that they have real value. In today’s world, if you’re making decisions based on how you feel or on your ‘gut’ you run the risk of being laughed at.

Yet, intuition is much stronger, more accurate and much more direct that what we are taught to use today, which is ‘rational logic’.

We have all heard people use the term ‘intuition’ in an attempt to express how they knew something before hand, or to describe this sense of unproven confidence they have in a situation and it’s really no surprise that women- the more empathetic of the two sexes are more likely to not only feel the pull, but also answer the call of the nudge.

You Need to Practice Creative Visualisation Now

If it was possible to do less, attract success and feel amazing while you do it, would you be interested or would you scoff at the idea as woo-woo propaganda?

This was the crisis I faced recently, upon stumbling upon a meditative technique called Creative Visualisation, which is the art of using mental imagery and affirmation to produce positive changes in your life.

The name itself was what intrigued me and as I dived deeper into my research, I discovered that this kind of meditation came highly recommended, having been successfully used in the fields of health, business, sports, the creative arts and said to have a positive impact in just about every area of life.

Why was this meditative process so highly recommended and how was it any different from normal visualization?

This was the question I hoped to answer and after much research, I realized that the process for Creative Visualization is in fact a simple form of meditation that encourages good feelings. And as all the experts will tell you, when you feel great inside our bodies and mind, we become a magnet for what we want, because our energy attracts its likeness.

As thought will always precede creation, everything first starts in our mind and is balanced between our subconscious and our conscious minds.

To understand the context under which the upcoming techniques will help you, let’s briefly explore the subconscious mind first.

Your subconscious can be seen as a programmable ‘hard drive’ much like your Fire Stick, mobile or phone, with the downloaded apps being stimulus-response behaviours. The subconscious remembers everything, is very literal and incapable of differentiating between what is real and imagined.

“The subconscious […]processes only in the present tense. It will look for and guide you to whatever you tell it. So you must be absolutely clear and specific in directing your subconscious to help you accomplish your goals. The subconscious mind uses imagination and feeling to communicate; you can practice in your mind without ever doing the actions,” explains Abigail Brenner M.D.

On the other hand, our conscious mind, the one we are aware of daily is a logical thinking entity that uses words to communicate. It processes in all three states of time, past, present and future and directly perceives the outside world, taking in what it ‘sees’ and reacting to is as such.

“The beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors that are programmed may override what our conscious mind desires. So to attain our conscious goals the idea is to access the subconscious in order to go beyond our limitations,” explains Brenner.

Creative visualization is one of the tools in which we can learn to access our subconscious mind, control our thoughts and manifest them into our conscious reality.  Changing what you believe, creates a change in your response to life and to what you believe you can achieve.

Let’s look at the steps towards using Creative visualization and becoming a happy magnet for your success!
