Have you ever heard the term – Practice Makes Perfect? Success is really deeper than these words however – its Perfect Practice Makes Perfect.
Science has shown that anything done repetitively for 21 days or more tends to become habit; whether it is something good or bad is up to you. Both success and failure are largely the results of habit!
If you can see the outcomes you desire, lock them in with tangible specific goal. Make sure your goals are specific and precise. “Making a lot of money” or “earning regular promotions” are wishes, not goals. State exactly how much money you expect to earn when and why you need it. Voice the specific promotion you want, how you plan to earn it, and when you expect to do so. This action locks in the Positive Intention and programs our human nature to Practice the actions which move us to our goal.
Consider the opposite for a moment to lock in the concept.
When we focus on not missing a target instead of on hitting the bull’s-eye, the results are often disastrous, for it is impossible to think negative thoughts in a positive way. Ask any golfer who has tried not to miss a putt or a bowler who has struggled not to miss a strike.
Carlson Companies chairman Curt Carlson really states the concept perfectly, “Obstacles are those frightening things you see when you take your eye off the target.”
We are tremendously powerful beings. Let your Positive Intentions create your Perfect Practice . . . and enjoy the ride!
