Track record of success, is that something that belongs on your resume? If not, why not? First of all I believe I need to thank all my subscribers for their patience as I have been promoting the upcoming Born To Win seminar, which is to be held on October 15th. As a result I have not been able to write as many issues of this newsletter.
Now back to the topic: What do I mean when I say “track record of success”? Do you regularly meet every goal you set? Do you have a vast bank of memories that support the belief that you are a successful person?
We have all been conditioned to think and behave in certain ways, patterns. To support a belief there must be references, you need to have reasons to believe in something. So what happens when you get all passionate and energetic towards your goals and you go out and give it all you’ve got with the highest of ambition?
It’s great to have passion and set big goals, after all, anything is possible right? But I would like to offer one small caveat (warning). When you set huge goals and strive to meet them, you can often find yourself overwhelmed or maybe the goal is so far in the future that it struggles to remain compelling.
You begin to lose sight of that goal you were so passionate about and it becomes a “maybe some day” type of thing. This sets you up not for a track record of success but a track record of failure. Here’s what I mean…
Remember what I mentioned earlier about references and how they support beliefs? Well when you set a goal and don’t meet it, you give your sub-conscious another reference that says you have failed. If this happens often enough you begin to form the belief that you are a failure or not worthy or any number of disempowering beliefs.
Then there is the other side of the coin. What about those who have a vast track record of success, a history of meeting goals? They have a different challenge, these people often find themselves in a rut and only playing at a level 5 out of 10 because that’s the sort of goals they set. I mean sure, it sets up a great track record of success but they are not being challenged and those goals become meaningless.
So what we really need to do is provide a solution for both situations, whichever one you are.
Firstly, for the go-getter who struggles to meet his or her massive goals, how about setting some very small goals for the very near future. Things like exercising every day for the next 5 days, brainstorming and jotting down some ideas or points to consider about a business venture you have in mind, landing one new appointment for a possible new client within the next 3 days etc.
If you set goals that you know you will achieve, it sets up a pattern in your sub-conscious, one you probably aren’t aware is even happening, that creates references for you that you indeed do have a track record of success.
Now for the complacent achiever; You regularly meet your goals but they no longer excite you because it’s just another day at the office so to speak. You know you can achieve but what good is that, you are just plain bored and you may not even know what you want anymore, you are just striving towards an ideal that you once believed you needed to follow.
Ok, so this isn’t everyone but it sure describes the situation of many people, especially those with jobs that are considered respectable and a salary to match. You people need to get out there and first of all find your passion, the goals that really excite, inspire and compel you.
You need to start thinking on a larger, more grandiose scale. Even if you don’t know how you are going to achieve it yet, set the goal anyway. You know from your track record of success that you will find a way, after all, you have always found a way to get things done before.
You will literally leap frog off of all those references of succeeding and use your previous track record success to propel you towards something more compelling.
Maybe this sounds all very simple and Pollyanna but it is simply the way the mind works. I have been studying human behaviour and the habits and mind-sets of successful people for many years and I have seen first hand that our whole reality is only just a representation of our own thinking and emotion. Actual reality is not necessarily the one you perceive, there is so much more to the way the human mind works than many people realise.
This is exactly what I work with in my seminars, one on one coaching and group coaching. I use technologies such as Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), hypnotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and anything else I have experienced that works in the real world.
I don’t just teach people the “what” or the information, I teach them the “how” and “why”. In other words I literally help you to rewire the nervous system and download the information and patterns you need, in much the same way that a computer assimilates programmes and information. So it’s not all just airy-fairy self-help, get motivated kind of material. I use what works because that is what I have immersed myself into learning.
Anyhow, I will end the newsletter here and I look forward to sharing more with you in the very near future.
Feel free to contact me or any of my staff for anything at all. I would also like to urge you all to contact me in regard to the Born To Win seminar, it will be a truly memorable event and I hope to share my knowledge and training with you in a practical situation so that you can really apply what you have learned.
