Stop Trying To Figure Out How

Stop Trying To Figure Out How

How many times has this happened to you?

You are working diligently on a project, you know exactly what it is you want to accomplish but you run headfirst into an obstacle that you can’t figure out how to overcome.

Stop Trying To Figure Out How

You spend countless hours racking your brain trying to sort it out, but nothing comes to you.

As an entrepreneur I have spent a lot of time in this barren wasteland. I can’t tell you how many times I have run up against obstacles that I didn’t know how I was going to overcome.

When I was younger, I operated with a fault that I thought I had to have everything figured out before getting started.

It is really unfortunate because I let a lot of great ideas go because I couldn’t figure out how I could ever make it happen. I thought I needed the complete start to finish blueprint before ever beginning. That is a wrong…

Many great ideas, would be businesses, projects, collaborations go to waste because people fail to start simply because they haven’t figured out how they are going to overcome every obstacle.

I am going to throw some new wave thinking at you here and all I ask is that you take a few minutes and open your mind to only thinking about what is possible.

Stop Trying To Figure Out How

This is critical, we get hung up on the how in everything because we force ourselves to think about what is probable.

I can’t exercise mind control over you, but you can exercise mind control over yourself.

Forget what is probable, forget what is likely, most importantly forget everything that has happened in the past and open your mind.

Visualize with the clarity of all your senses only what is possible.

It is an incredible concept that works when you stop trying to figure out how and only focus on the end result and picture it very clearly in your mind.

Consider what the thought process of Thomas Edison might have been.

How else could he have possibly continued to find 10,000 ways that a light bulb would not work if he did not have a very clear picture in his mind of a what a working light bulb turned on by electricity would look like.

It was that end picture that kept him going, he never knew how when he started and has been famously quoted as saying he never failed but quite the opposite, he was successful in finding 10,000 ways that a light bulb would not work.Stop Trying To Figure Out How

The book Psycho-Cybernetics goes into great detail about how our “Creative Mechanism” works and is always working in our subconscious.

Your “Creative Mechanism” has the ability to deliver the how for ANYTHING that you might want to accomplish or achieve, it has unlimited power.

The defining fact that has transformed my results from the same old ones that I didn’t want but always seemed to get into delivering the goods on how to achieve the exact goals and dreams that I want for my life has been this:

Stop Trying To Figure Out How

The primary thoughts that you hold in your mind are what produce the results from your “Creative Mechanism”.

When we only focus on what is probable, focus on all the reasons that something won’t work out or our primary thought process is based on negative past experiences we are feeding our “Creative Mechanism” everything that it requires to produce the exact result that we do not want to see, and guess what, that is the result that shows up every time.

I am a mountain biker and have been for a long time. I used to get caught up on a difficult, technical section of a certain trail. I would have to stop and get off my bike to walk over this section of trail where a root intersected the trail followed by a drop off.

Stop Trying To Figure Out How

I had fallen off at this section the first time I rode the trail because I had focused on the root. I was visually looking at the obstacle that I didn’t want to focus on and it was taking all of my focus.

For anyone that has rode bikes or snowboarded or skied, anything like that, you know exactly what I am talking about. When you focus on the obstacle, the obstacle keeps tripping you up.

It wasn’t until I decided ahead of time time that no matter what, I am not going to look at the root, I am going to keep looking ahead and I won’t even let it into my thoughts that I was able to ride over it.

Not only that, it changed my riding forever.

I started riding up hills that I hadn’t been able to ride, I began to take on much more technical terrain and took my riding to an entirely new level.

When I completely forgot about past experiences, quit focusing on the obstacles, stopped trying to figure how and only looked forward, my “Creative Mechanism” was no longer blocked with the my negative thoughts and easily took care of things that I previously thought I could not do.

It doesn’t matter what you are trying to do, this process works and it works every time, without fail!

Spend time every day with your goals. Put your “Creative Mechanism” to work by doing everything that you can to move yourself in the direction of your goal.

You can’t become who you dream of becoming if your Daily Activities are not related to the DREAM person you want to become. – Wilson Ferreira

If you are just starting out towards a dream or goal and you are having difficulty just focus on one small thing that would take you in the direction of you goal each day.Stop Trying To Figure Out How

The most powerful place to start is by visualizing yourself having already accomplished that which you are want to achieve.

Picture yourself at a very specific place in time and a very specific location. Maybe it is on a vacation that you always wanted to take but don’t know how you are going to afford it.

Maybe it is working for yourself because you have always dreamed of starting your own business, but don’t have a great idea or don’t have the resources to get it off the ground…

Whatever it is, stop giving all your energy to all the reasons that you are unable to get started. Stop trying to figure out how and just spend half an hour a day visualizing yourself having already accomplished your goal.

Picture yourself on that beach with your family, visualize yourself sitting in your own home office. See yourself doing what it is that you love doing and feel all the feelings of warmth, satisfaction and achievement that comes with realizing that goal.

Use all your senses, what do you see, picture it with the most vibrant colors, smells and noises.

Turn up the intensity on your senses.

Force these images into your mind as soon as you wake up each day.

When ever you feel doubt, or think about an unfavourable result, force it out with these positive images.

A positive thought is a thousand times more powerful than any negative thought, push out all negative thinking.

Go to bed each evening and stop trying to figure out how – only spend time with your vision of having achieved your goal and believing that is so incredibly easy to have done it.

It is a fact that our minds play tricks on us. We default to thinking that it must be harder than it actually is to achieve something that we really want.

When in reality it is no harder for us to achieve the goal or dream that we really want than what it is we are currently achieving.

The only difference is the thoughts of probability that we place in our minds.Stop Trying To Figure Out How

When we place more thoughts of possibility than probability in our minds the scale immediately tips in our favour.

Start living the life you want to live and stop trying to figure out how!
