How To Achieve Your Goals On Autopilot

15 replies
Have you ever tried to force your way to your goals?

Everyday you tell yourself tomorrow I'm just going to try harder. You tell yourself I'm just going to work harder and harder only to reach the end of the day with nothing done.

It's frustrating because it seems like the more you try the less you get done.

Why?

Why can't you just hit your goals like you said you would? Why can't you just focus?

I'll tell you this it isn't a motivation problem.

The problem is deeper, but simpler than you think. And the way to fix it is by following the simple formula many of the worlds richest people and brightest minds have discovered.

Now I must warn you this secret isn't new. In fact it's one of the oldest secrets in the history of time, but once you master it you can literally change the course of your life overnight.

What's the secret you ask?

VISUALIZING YOUR GOALS!

You see many of you never sit down and picture in your mind what you really want. Sure you want to make money online, but what does that look like?

Sure you want to live a life of financial abundance, but what does it look like?

If you have no idea what this looks like then your brain doesn't know how to help you. You see the brain has a system that automatically takes over when you give it something to work with.

Seeing what you truly want with your life in your minds eye is how you build up inspirational energy. With this energy you don't even need to motivate yourself to take action you just do it.

So how do you make this work?

Every morning as soon as you wake up take 5-10 mins to see your ideal life. See your ideal business. What do you do in your daily life? What do you do in your business? What type of clients to you have? What type of house do you live in? Who lives with you? How much money do you make?

Try to capture the image in your mind of what it looks like. Eventually the system in your brain will take over and move you toward your vision.

If you've done it right by the time you get out of bed you'll be quivering with excitement to take action.

    Habits, it all starts from something small. Small things that matter when compounded can bring great results in the long run. Sure, you don't see those results right away, but these little things will make up big and great things. I see people wishing to win the lottery but doesn't even participate in one.

      I definitely agree with you on habits. In fact, I have a post I'm going to share on the forum soon about how you can maximize your productivity and make more money by developing IM habits.

      Again to begin forming habits you need the motivation in the beginning which is where inspirational energy makes it easier.

    blah had a longer response .. but chose to delete it..

    really don't want to try to talk people into haveing day to day live they enjoy .. and not day to day lives they want to ignore doing the important stuff but handing the important stuf over to habit or some auto pilot method ..


    not my job ..


    there are only 16 hours in a waking day if you sleep a healthy 8 hours ..what you do to earn money or build the life you want .. will take most of that time ..so you can either build a business around doing productive things you enjoy doing to earn money.. or get a job doing stuff you are just doing for the money ..

    you will probably make more money working for someone else if you are just doing it for the money.. and build habits and autopilot crud .. to do that job ..

    What is autopilot?

    On an airplane, it is when the computer takes over for the captain. He can't go to sleep, there is still a lot going on which requires his attention. But the point was to relieve the stress of being attentive to so many details, which fatigued pilots as routes got longer.

    Humans don't have an autopilot.

    What does exist is TIME, so as far as LIFE goes, we are all on AUTOPILOT flying from the crib to the crypt, from the cradle to the coffin.

    80 years seems about average in USA. 100 years is common.

    The difference between a pilot and a human is the pilot has a specific destination and time and enough fuel to reach it. Humans aren't guaranteed tomorrow, let alone enough time to VISUALIZE a reality in the future.

    Studies have shown that aphantasia is a real condition, albeit affecting a small % of the populace. But difficutly in visualizing, as presented by the OP, is a very common thing especially among people who are tactile, or have a touch or even an auditory preference to learning.

    To tell someone to VISUALIZE, is spurious. The reason for Goal Boards, Vision Boards, story boards, old fashioned cut outs glued on to paper is to HELP people visualize.

    There is no such thing as AUTOPILOT when it comes to achieving goals.

    I think Odahh is right here.

    I deleted the post i put up yesterday .

    I will state it this way.. if you are out of college or school it is time to stop handing any part of your life over to habits or autopilot.. the days where you could get out of school get a job and work a carreer that you could mentally check out of and put your life on autpo pilot until you retire and then live the life you want are over ..

    as Gordon pointed out. you are not guaranteed tomorrow ..but you might just live to be somewhere between 80 or even get over the age 100 mark ..i mean in the last month i have almost been run over by a car a few times and had a rattle snake let me know i was not sitting in a safe spot to be sitting.. in the middle of winter when they are not supposed to be out ..

    with the tech we have and the world we live in .. once you figure out what you really want to do .. you can build a business around it over time that you can support yourself from ..and live the rest of your life doing things you want to do most of the day .. and actively living your life ..

    or you can try to pick a business to do that you don't want to do and have goal you don't really want to pay attention to what you have to do to achieve the goals .. to make the most money and after you have enough money(which never happens) then buy the life you want .. which will fail for 19 out of 20 people

    at this point When i build my online business the goal will be .. assemble choir and preach to it

      This is the basic idea. Be it a shopify Amazon affiliate site, products based site, or a content, lifestyle site, or a blog, forum, email sequence...

      isn't this what ALL of the successful marketers and companies DO?

      OK. If you agree, then there must be an INTERSECTION, a place, a space where the choir congregates. In real world, it might be a McDonalds, Starbucks or a Walmart.

      Online it could be a blog, static web page, dynamic interactive site, email, YouTube channel, Facebook Group,etc., etc. and so on.

      Now then...what sort of a choir? What will you be "preaching" to them?

      One Facebook group of would be COPY writers, has over 26,000 members and the Rev. preaches to it, to the tune of a couple of hundred thousand dollars a year.

      So, who do you want as a client, customer, or beating this metaphor to death, who is in YOUR choir? Where are they NOW, before they find you? How will you tell them your message?

      What is the exact response you want? How will you qualify them, to make sure they fit into the harmonies of your message and don't sing off key so as to annoy the other members?

      And here is one of first ignored points of order when it comes to IM, and the WF gives clear and present evidence of it...

      instead of seeking the HOW to make money, concentrate on the WHO, and then you can figure out which song book to offer them.

      GordonJ

      PS. So maybe a vision of a happy choir, a VISUALIZATION of getting other people to that joyous state, rather than a focus on one's own bliss, would serve many better than the selfish ideas of being someone who attained a self serving goal. Eh?

    Yeah I definitely agree that having a strong Vision of what you want to accomplish is a great/powerful motivator. Choose something that really inspires you.

      lets look at the richest people in the world ..

      Jeff Bozos ..saw the growth of the web /internet year over year..and envision the best business model ..that woul take advantage of that growth

      Bill gates ..saw the growth of personal computers and understood those computers would need software to run ..and wanted software from his company on all those computers ..

      warren buffet just bought businesses that had long term growth and near daily use by as many people as possible ..and put well compensated management in charge of those businesses .

    Plant the seed in your subconscious and let a new belief system
    impregnate your reality. I am a great believer in the power of sound.

    I use programs that rewire the mind into believing that anything
    is attainable. Naysayers just confirm the fact that I fly past by
    with momentum so there is no friction. I eliminated the naysayer
    in me with the sheer power of the will, along with cosmic programming.

    Automatic manifestation is feasible, once you align with the deliberating feeling of sound as it weaves deep in your reality. Then you'll start harnessing the power that has been suppressed in the past due to limited thinking.

    I infused some power words inside the mind and within a few short months,I attained something that stricken my fancy. Something that was not possible to be acquired with conventional thinking. It was an auto-pilot manifesto - I just set it, visualized it every so often and it found a place in my reality.

      Tellya, that is so cerebro-porno I wanna actualise deep inside my Perhaps Flaps.

      THING ONE

      Anythin' automatically manifestible is kinda INEVITABLE.

      Otherwise, why the f*ck it automatic?

      THING TWO

      "deliberating"?

      Aw, c'mon -- 'pon whose GRANNY SUCKS EGGS sensibilities you seekin' to add EXTRA VALUE c/o BONUS NUTHIN'?

      THING THREE

      "start"

      tbh, ima grittin' my teeth here.

      An' look see ... I gone too far.

      Cos now my mandibular chompset be pokin' outta my brains.

      An' my skullsy chompset jus' ruptured a lung.

      (Any RING OF FOUR WISHES enthoosiasts prolly gotta quit at this point -- less'n you only TWO WISHES IN on no SEECRIT ring nowan don't know about ...)

      What's worked for me is to set a goal and then formulate a game-plan of what must be done to hit that goal in a certain period of time. I'll take my yearly goals, and then break them down into monthly, weekly and daily goals. Breaking things down into bite-sized chunks makes a huge difference. This has worked well for me through the years.

    At least you practice what you preach.

    It partially excuses the very questionnable proposition of your location - if only a little.


    It reminds me of a guy who would sit on a forum discussing a mundane reality television programme, decalring 'I' don't even have to prove myself or my opinion! I'm busy in Maldives scuba diving!'.



    Maybe he was visualizing...

    Looks a whole lot like what frank kerns suggests

    He recommend going even deeper.

    What would a complete DAY look like: Who are your friends? what would you be talking about? what would you eat? What would you do in your spare time? Literally EVERYTHING.

    Pretty cool. Definitely have to try this out.

    I think another way to think about this would be to visualize your endpoint.

    Who are you and what are you doing at your endpoint? Its sort of just semantics, but if you use the term endpoint instead of goal, for me it is easier to visualize building a roadmap to get there. If you start with fleshing out the details of the endpoint, its easier to retrace your steps, and build hops as you trace back to where you are NOW.
