With all the blood, sweat and tears I’ve put in to the first 40 days of my “Productivity Challenge” I started to think. I have worked relentlessly on getting my mind right, figuring out and connecting with my highest purpose (which was no easy task), creating a perfect vision for the life I desire to create and a detailed navigation plan for achieving it. Now what?
As I was moving through the process of each of these tasks, I realized that this process was not new to me. I had completed these items before, most recently in 2009. I was surprised to find that I had achieved some of my desired goals and was well on my way to achieving others. I was also surprised to see how little my aspirations have changed. So why am I not further along in the achievement of some of my major goals? Then it hit me!
I remembered a study I completed of a work called “The New Psycho Cybernetics” by Dr. Maxwell Maltz and Dan S. Kennedy. In that study they taught about a concept called your “Servo Mechanism.” The idea is that our brains have the ability and will automatically create our deepest desires (whether they be positive or negative) through what they call our “automatic success mechanism” or our “automatic failure mechanism” depending on how we program it.
Basically what we focus our thoughts on is what our lives will manifest!
So if we buy in to this concept then it makes sense!
The reason I am not further along with my goals is I have not been programming my automatic success mechanism to GO FOR IT!
I completed my purpose and vision statements and even my detailed navigational plan and goals and promptly put them away. OUCH! That was my mistake! So there is the lesson and here is the course correction:
From this day on, I will read through my purpose, vision, goals and plan every day. (Maybe even twice!) I will keep them in front of me at my desk and carry them with me wherever I go. In so doing, I will place my intentions clearly into my Servo Mechanism which will automatically and unconsciously pursue their achievement with laser focus.
It is true, a mind is a terrible thing to waste!
