State Your Goals In The Present
We now need to change the time line for our goals from the future to the present. We need to create structural tension in our brains, whereby we create a goal statement that declares our goal as already complete.
The difference between your current reality and your stated goal (future reality), creates what is known as structural tension in your brain. Your subconscious then begins to mobilize all the forces of the universe to align your goal with your reality. You effectively program our reticular activating system to start searching for all the resources, knowledge, people etc that will help you live your goal. You also begin to actively utilize one of the most powerful forces of nature, namely the “Law Of Attraction” or as I prefer to call it the “Law of Intention”.
In the exercise today, you’ll work with three goals you’ve already identified. Please work on changing the goal language from the future to the NOW!!!!.
Goals, as you defined them earlier, differ slightly from goal-centered affirmations in the way that they’re put together. Whereas goals have a time element, your affirmation will not. That’s because for an affirmation, you feel it as if it has already been accomplished. You can include a time element if you state your affirmation as follows. It is the 28 November 2010 and I am happily walking onto the set of Oprah Winfrey. Including the date is really optional, do whatever works for you. If you include the date you must visualize yourself as actually living on that date right now.
For example, if one of your goals is to appear on Oprah by 10 June 2011 (a goal with a measurable outcome and a timeframe), in your affirmation, it’s 28th April 2011, the cameras are rolling and I am on stage shaking hands with Oprah. I’m feeling how wonderful it is to talk about my New York Times best seller, listening to her guests describe the change it made in their lives, and I can just feel the audiences energy.
Because your subconscious can’t tell the difference between reality and something vibrantly imagined, your body is experiencing all of the thrills and adrenaline that you’ll feel when it happens.
As you convert your goal list to affirmations, you’ll want to keep the phrasing active and in the present tense. What you had set as a goal, you’re feeling just how wonderful it is to experience the fruits of that measurable outcome. But you’re not just on Oprah, or driving that new Audi TT convertible, you’re joyfully driving it, you’re skillfully negotiating a higher raise, your contentedly looking into the eyes of your life partner.
In the left column of the table below, write three of your goals, including your Banner goal.
Then, in the right column, re-phrase your goal into an affirmation. Begin each affirmation with “I am…” or “We are…” and keep it in the present tense. Use active verbs and emotional adverbs
|E.G: I will appear on the Oprah Winfrey Show before 31 Dec 2011||It’s 28th Nov 2011, the cameras are rolling and I am on stage shaking hands with Oprah. I’m feeling how wonderful it is to talk about my New York Times best seller, listening to her guests describe the change it made in their lives, and I can just feel the audiences energy.|
