Word on the street is that 2012 is the year to GO BIG. If the past few years have been the ebb… we have entered the flow. So let ‘er rip. This is the time to create… that beloved partnership, rockin’ body, or kick-ass business idea! What’s that.. did I hear a little grumble out of you? A little hesitation? A little trembling voice saying, “Yeah right, in my dreams!”

PERFECT! That is where we are looking to start today. What are those knee-jerk reactions to your natural impulses that urge you to take your life from doing okay — to “Blow Your Mind Blissed Out Happy” today? Let’s play a little game of fly fishing with those mental blocks. Let’s catch ‘em and release ‘em! We’ve all heard it before, but it’s worth hearing again:

“If you believe you can, or you believe you can’t, you’re probably right”
Henry Ford

So why do we poo-poo our dreams? Usually it’s a doubt we planted one day long, long ago. So let’s pull some weeds. It’s time to cultivate a unflappable belief in yourself. Because the thoughts you choose to buy into are what tends to manifest your world.

We loved these four very practical but uber-poweful suggestions outlined on Personal-development-planet.com:
Media Influence. Let’s start with a big one! Do you have any idea how much the media shapes your beliefs? Well, if you’re panicked about the “threat” of terrorism or swine flu, believe we’re stuck in a recession where there’s no money to be made, or feel the world is a scary and dangerous place, you’re being influenced by the media to believe something that is not necessarily the case. Cultivating belief that the world is actually an abundant, happy place takes work – but first you have to accept that the wool is being pulled over your eyes.

Building Self Esteem. One of the most important things you can do is cultivate belief in yourself. When you believe in yourself, you set higher goals, take bigger risks, and like and respect yourself more. Unfortunately, most of us suffer from low self esteem. Cultivate belief in yourself – learn how to tolerate, like and then love yourself. This isn’t an overnight fix, but you can get there.

Stop Comparing Yourself to Others. Most people waste a crazy amount of time and effort comparing themselves to other people. No matter what they achieve, if someone else is “doing better”, they’ll get the hump and feel miserable. Naturally, this is a crazy philosophy to live by. Luckily, the desire to compare yourself is a belief like any other, and can be un-learned. Start focusing on being the best you can be, and help you to stop worrying about the 6 billion other humans on the planet for a minute!

Learn to Visualise. I first found out about visualisation a few years ago, and I dismissed it as a load of hippy rubbish. Luckily, being a bit of a hippy, I gave it a go anyway. I now know that visualisation is the fastest and most powerful way to change beliefs, and cultivate beliefs that empower you. Not only that, it’s fun to do. All you do is imagine yourself being the person you want to be, generate the feelings of success… and voila! You begin to change! Seriously, make visualisation a part of your daily practice and you’ll succeed much quicker.
