Becoming the Person You Want to be…

What you think about and focus on most expands in your life. If you focus on the person you desire to become, you’ll become that person. If you think most about your negative habits, relationships and finances, they will all expand. This is why so many outcomes in our lives are self-fulfilling.

To stop this cycle, do these things:

1. Have a clear understanding of who and where you are  currently (but don’t make it worse than it really is).

2.  Begin focusing on the person you want to become. 

3.  Visualize how you would conduct your daily life if you were that person today.

4.  Write down the thoughts and actions which are limiting you from becoming that person. 

5.  Write down how you will change those thoughs and actions to overcome your limitations.  This becomes your plan of action.

5.  Work like crazy on your plan.  Get up every morning thinking and acting more like that person.  If you do, each day, you will be one step closer.

6.  Keep working on the plan each day until you are there.

7.  Enjoy the person you’ve become!

Follow these five steps without fail.  If you do, it will be hard to miss your target.  Don’t make it harder than it is.  If you can conceive in your mind how you want to be, you can achieve it.   My wish for you is for you to do well for youself in 2009!

  2. This is a great point. The thing that tears me apart is how people talk about wanting to become this ‘person,’ yet when influenced by pop culture or certain people they turn right back to the way they were. I have had trouble with this experience in the past myself…

  3. I love this, Charlie. Great point! As long as you stay just the way you are…

  4. Thanks for the comments everyone!
