Every morning, I wake up and see something on my ceiling. As the sleep clings to my eyes, my eyelids flip open and closed. The image above me dances through my sleepy mind and is contorted as it turns into strange dreams.
The something I see on my ceiling is this. My most pressing goal. The one thing that will make the most difference in my life at the moment. I have it taped to my ceiling and it is written in present tense. It is in present tense because, even though I don’t know exactly how it will happen, I know if I stay focused on my goal, I will reach it.
Have you ever thought about your subconscious mind? What does it think about while your regular mind is thinking? What does it think about when you are sleeping or driving or eating or talking to someone else?
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night with a song playing in your head as loud as if you were singing it? You wonder how long this song has been playing in your head because, for the life of you, you can’t even remember where you heard it?
I have. It is my subconscious mind alive and active even while I am sleeping! It never rests. It is constantly taking stuff in. Songs, impressions, pictures, thoughts. It’s the brain beneath your brain.
So, why do I hang my goal above my bead? I hang it there because I wake up every morning and without even thinking, I see my goal. Without even thinking or even while thinking about something else, I read it because it is right there.
Every day I am making a deposit. A deposit into my subconscious. It is a goal met. It is of no consequence that I’m not 100% sure how I will achieve it thinking about it rationally.
For months before Michael quit his job, we had this posted on our bathroom mirror:
We had decided Michael needed to quit his job and become self-employed. We, however, had no idea what it would look like or how to make it become a reality.
I will let the rest of our story speak for itself here.
I now know the power of my mind. I don’t hesitate to guide it in the direction it needs to go.
Question: Did you ever have a goal where you weren’t sure how it was going to come about?
