It contains and illustrates all of the key principles that you need to know to become a highly effective, positive “possibility thinker” in your life.

Imagine A Perfect Future For Your Life

Perhaps the biggest obstacle to creating a wonderful life is “self-limiting beliefs.” Everyone has them, and some people have so may of them that they are almost paralyzed when it comes to taking action.

A self-limiting belief is an idea you have that you are limited in some way, in terms of time, talent, intelligence, money, ability, or opportunity. The way you free yourself from these negative brakes on your potential is to change your thinking about who you are and what is truly possible for you.

Show Me the Money

Start with your income. How much do you want to be earning, one, two, three, and five years from today? Look around you and ask, “Who else is earning the kind of money I want to earn, and what are they doing differently from me?” If you don’t know or you aren’t sure, go and ask them. Do your homework.

Free Yourself: Design Your Perfect Life

Imagine your perfect lifestyle. If you had no limitations at all, how would you like to live, day in and day out? If you were financially independent, what kind of home would you live in? What kind of car would you want to drive? What kind of life would you like to provide for your family? What sort of activities would you like to engage in throughout the week, month, and year?

Turn Your Ideal into Reality

When you sit down and design your ideal lifestyle, you can then compare it to what you are doing today and notice the differences. You can then start thinking about how you could bring your real or current lifestyle closer to your ideal. When you idealize your income and your lifestyle, you develop vision for your life. You begin to practice a key quality of personal leadership. You begin projecting into the future and making plans to turn your future dreams into a current reality.

Take Charge Through Personal Leadership

Create an ideal future self in terms of your personal and professional development. What kind of person do you want to be in the future? What additional knowledge and skills do you want to acquire? In what areas would you like to become absolutely excellent? What subjects would you like to master? What do you need to learn to move up in your field? What is your growth plan to get from where you are to where you want to go? Through personal leadership you can begin creating your ideal life and achieve all your goals.

    Well spoken. This is such a difficult task though. Anthony Robbins and Andy Stanley covered it in Awaken the Giant and The Principle of the Path, respectively. I find it both being a short and long term task. It’s a short term task because once we recognize a belief we can fix it rather quickly but it’s long term as well because we need to take action. Changing from an introvert to an extrovert, making more money, or excellerating a paradigm shift — all takes time. Regardless, thank you for the reminder.

    our life is full of uncertainty at the mean while we all want to do some thing different apart from all. to be a leader is not a difficult task but to achieve that we all have to be broad in our mentality, in our attitude and all. practice is some thing by which a dream comes true so try to say yes to the next what ever the situation is…

    Another reason which holds us back from taking action is the fear of failure. I think, this is the most important reason for not being successful.

    I like point #2 – imagining your ideal life. I think this is the key to all success – once we know what we want, we’ll automatically know how to get it, and we automatically work towards getting it.
