STEP ONE: CAUSE & EFFECT
Take control of your thinking
Making a committed decision to step out of your comfort zone, challenging yourself to grow, learn and thrive. By making this commitment you will begin to take risks, whether big or small, to gradually move in the direction of your goals.
Neale Donald Walsch - author of spiritual book series Conversation with God, reminds us that "life begins at the end of our comfort zone".
Through meditation and prayer, we seek to establish a relationship with our inner spirit/or god as you may know it. We begin by finding a quiet place, free from all noise and disturbances on a daily basis and we start to communicate, building a trusting, caring and loving relationship.

To achieve a truly rewarding and fulfilling life we must gain balance between the spirit, mind and body, creating harmony is the key to ultimate wellness and happiness.
When our mind and emotions are balanced and harmonized, then we have access to our true inner spiritual nature. When we start to tune into our inner spirit, we begin to connect to an essential aspect of ourselves that not only gives us comfort and strength, but also the power to grow, to be more compassionate, toward ourselves and toward others.
Have you ever noticed that a person who becomes successful tends to continue to become more successful? On the other hand, have you noticed how someone who is failing continue to fail? The difference is having a worthwhile, positive and meaningful goal to focus your mind on, until that goal is achieved.
People with goals succeed because they know where they are going. It’s that simple. A good definition of success, I come across this saying, "success is the progressive realisation of a worthy ideal”.
Just as affirmations are beneficial for motivation, focus and effective goal setting, so to is visualization or mental imagery. It works because when you imagine yourself doing exactly what you want, seeing yourself achieving your goal, you physiologically create neural patterns in your brain, just as if you had physically performed the action. Hence why mental rehearsal is a great term.
One of the greatest laws in the universe simply stated is;
“If you think in negative terms, you will get negative results.”
“If you think in positive terms, you will achieve positive results. We become what we think about.”
Marcus Aurelius, reputedly the wisest of all the Roman Emperors
“Your life is what your thoughts make of it.”
When we struggle to achieve our goals, it is usually because we have put some sort of barrier there, in the form of a limiting belief. It may be a belief we grew up with, something someone once said or did, or even fear of what might happen when we do achieve our goals.
Every time we say we can’t do something, this is a limiting belief. Even if we don’t consciously say the word, the mere thought will trigger the feeling in our unconscious mind and this impacts on our behaviour.
Creating an action plan helps you maintain your focus, without an action plan you may engage in a lot of activity without accomplishing anything towards your goal, or you may not take any action at all because you don’t know where to begin. Your action plan is your guild, it ensures your actions and decisions are oriented toward accomplishing your goals.
By gaining more of an insight into your inner world you are better able to influence it. It will affect what you say, how you say it and what you do.
You will be more motivated to continue striving making a better life for yourself and others at the same time, seeing personal growth and fulfilment as a central goal for life.
