YOU CAN SET GOALS
Feeling you don’t deserve a goal can stop you pursuing it. If achieved, you can feel undeserving (Impostor Syndrome) and lose it. Dig deep, find the reason WHY you want it. Understand that everything you do is for you. If you work for charity, do a friend a favour, help little old ladies across the road, work 80-hour weeks – it is all to satisfy your psychological needs. Use this and work out WHY you want the goal.
Reflect on this every day, program the subconscious to believe there is no risk to you (no “dark alleys”). Break the goal into chunks. Celebrating after achieving each chunk gives your brain a dose of DOSE (Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotonin, Endorphins) and it likes it. Reflect on what you have done, and on your WHY. At the finish you will know it is your success.
Take responsibility for everything in your life. Whatever has happened and will happen to you, is your responsibility. You are responsible through agency (an intended action) and negligence (ignoring the situation). Taking responsibility for a problem does not mean it is your fault. It does mean that you are in control, taking you from victim to victor, giving you power to get results. Responsibility empowers you.
