How To Re-wire Your Brain For Success

 

Wouldn’t it be great if with the flick a switch and we could change our brain so that we could become successful. Or imagine if we could reprogram our brain so that we could have the same thought patterns and thinking processes that successful people have. This might sound far fetched and science fiction for now, but what if I told you that from today, you could start to re-wire your brain for success.

Yes, you really can. let me explain. Your brain is more powerful than a super computer. If your brain was a computer, it could perform 38 thousand trillion operations per second! The world’s most powerful supercomputer can only manage .002% of that. Most neuroscientists estimate that our brain storage capacity is somewhere between 10 terabytes and 100 terabytes. (One terabyte is equal to about 1,000 gigabytes or about 1 million megabytes). Your brain is a powerful thing, it has the power to help you calculate, perceive, analyze, store, speak, move, solve problems, have emotions, create and many more functions.

Over the years I have read dozens of books about success, productivity and how to achieve your goals. For many years I over complicated and over analyzed how could I achieve my goals and dreams. When I finally began to re-wire my brain for success, I realized that achieving success was really quite simple and more straightforward than I imagined. Let me break it down for you how I re-wired my brain and you can too, so that you can start to feel more positive, take more action and achieve your goals and dreams.

Change Your Thought Process\Belief System

Dr Wayne Dyer said “Change your thoughts, change your life”, and how very true. Very often we fail to realize the effect our thoughts can have on our lives and indeed the people around us. To start re-wiring your brain for success you need to start each and every day with the positive habit of using a journal. Start by writing down three things every day that you are grateful for. This could be things as wonderful as having food on your table, a roof over your head, great friends, your partner, your exciting goals, your health, your job, the list is practically endless. Motivational speaker Zig Ziglar used to say “the more you are grateful for what you have, the more you will have to be grateful for”. The simple but very powerful exercise of writing down what you are grateful for, is a wonderful way to start each day. It will push you to think of all the things in life that you are grateful for and of all the things you do not take for granted. I also spend a few minutes every morning looking at Facebook, I find it great source of inspiration by reading some of the wonderful motivational quotes from different pages. To achieve your exciting goals you really need to start believing in yourself more. You have to start to really believe that you are going to achieve your goals, and that you are committed to take the necessary action to do so.

Have Goals That Excite You Everyday

Do you have a list of your short, medium and long term goals? Do you have the step by step roadmap written down on paper that you can follow to get you to where you want to be in the future? Most people don’t. Most people wish they had a better car, wish they lived in a different house, wished they had more money or wished they were in better physical shape etc. Or they promise themselves that one day I’ll join the gym and get into shape, one day they open up a savings account for their dream car, one day they will read the books, or take the course and up skill themselves for a new career or promotion. You see the problem is there are seven days in a week and one day isn’t one of them. Have a list of goals of the places where you want to go, things you want to do and what type of person do you want to become? Then start planning out a daily to-do list in your journal. I use the wonderful 5 Minute Journal to help me record my daily gratitude list and my to-do list. Simplicity is key in my opinion. Don’t over complicate things. Success is simple as long as you follow the fundamentals of success. Motivational speaker Jim Rohn summed it up perfectly when he said “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced every day”. Using a daily journal is one of these disciplines.

Take Action Every Day To Achieve Your Goals

By writing down on paper a list of your goals and dreams is one thing, recording what you are grateful for every day is another, but to really change your mindset and to re-wire your brain for success, you need to take action. OK, using a journal every day is taking action, but the action needed to take you to the next level to help you achieve your goals you actually need to work. How many of us make a New years resolution only to forget about it a week later (if not sooner). You need to make yourself accountable to YOU and take physical action to achieve your short, medium and long term goals and not just write them down. Saying or writing down that you will do something is one thing, actually going out there and doing it is a total different ball game. Be one of the few who goes out and starts using a journal, be one of the few who has a list of goals, be one of the few who promises themselves that they will not give up when they hit a bump in the road. Be one of the few who believes in themselves, believes in their future and who will actually take action today.

The Practice of Ho’oponopono Can Clear Stress and Negativity from Your Life

Published

Ho’oponopono

One method of reducing stress that you may not have heard of before is the Hawaiian practice of Ho’oponopono. Many of us deal with some level of stress on a regular basis. While it is almost impossible to get rid of stress completely from your life, there are many effective ways to reduce it. Too much stress can cause a variety of negative health issues, these include:

  • Heart disease
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Diabetes

Ho’oponopono originated in Hawaii, and translates directly into English as “correction” or “to make right”. The practice focuses on reconciliation and forgiveness by using an affirmation to clear the mind of any negative thoughts and stress.

The benefits to someone who practices Ho’oponopono regularly are:

  • Reduction of stress
  • Improvement in physical and mental health
  • Improved relationships with others
  • Control over emotions
  • A happier/more positive life

How Does Ho’oponopono Work?

Ho’ponopono does not require much teaching or practice, yet it is powerful for getting rid of bad memories or feelings. Ho’oponopono is a simple practice that allows you to release negativity that is being held within you. It also sends out the desire for reconciliation into the universe. This is achieved by using just four easy steps. The steps of H’oponopono are:

1. I’m Sorry: In life, it can be very easy to feel like the victim. We are often quick to blame other people or other circumstances for our own negative thoughts. In reality, you are in control of your thoughts. You are responsible for the negative feelings that have manifested inside. It is not always easy to admit that you have allowed your consciousness to introduce those negative thoughts – and that you have believed them. By saying sorry, you are recognizing that you are responsible for the negative thoughts or emotions that you might have. Apologizing to yourself has a powerful healing power and will help you to move on with your life.

2. Forgive Me: Once you have said that you are sorry, forgiveness is the next natural step. Don’t think so much about who you’re asking to forgive you. Instead, focus on the feeling of genuine remorse as you ask for that forgiveness.

3. Thank You: Gratitude has the power to completely change your outlook in life. Thank a friend, thank yourself, thank the universe or God or whoever you want to. The more that you are grateful, the more things you will have to be grateful for. Get into the habit of being more grateful every day.

4. I Love You: There is perhaps nothing more powerful in the world than the power of love. It doesn’t matter who the words are spoken to as long as the feeling behind them is genuine. Love yourself, your body, the air that you breathe, the world around you and all of the people in it. The power of love has the power to heal and banish any negative thoughts and stress from our lives.

Ho’oponopono

Why is Ho’oponopono So Powerful?

I’m sorry. Forgive me. Thank you. I love you.

So, what makes these simple affirmations so powerful?

You will probably agree that the four healing affirmations of Ho’oponopono are all positive things. When you can don’t have to convince yourself of that, and you just naturally “know” it, it is easier to push away negative thoughts and block out stress by filling yourself with love and gratitude.

Making Ho’oponopono a Habit

Because the affirmations of Ho’oponopono are universally accepted, anyone can put them into practice and allow them to change the way that they think and feel. Whether you use the affirmations as a daily reminder to yourself, or you focus on each of the four areas individually in order to rid yourself of negativity, they can make a big difference in your life. Stress will always be there and ignoring it will only make things worse. By recognizing that no other person or situation has control over your thoughts, you can feel more confident in getting rid of any negativity and stress that might be affecting you.

Start by realizing the importance of self, and how your negative connotations toward others or toward external factors could be controlling you more than you think. Once you start looking inward instead of outward, you can start to re-gain control over which thoughts you choose to listen to and which thoughts you choose to ignore. Always remember, the power to clear away stress and negativity starts from within.
