How Are You Programmed?
Our programming determines everything we say, think, and do. Ultimately, our programming determines our success or failure! Our programs are formed by repetition – we act on the programs that are the strongest, whether they are right, wrong, good, bad, helpful, or harmful. In order to create new mental programs, they must be repeated naturally and often. By listening to repeated positive new messages, we can replace the old negative programs. Every time a new message is repeated, the new neural pathways in the brain become stronger.
You have the ability to make ANY desired changes in your life (weight loss, personal finance, relationships, self-esteem, prospecting and recruiting, the Basic 5, etc.) by simply repeating the new programs often enough to become permanent. You simply need a way that is easy, doesn’t take extra time, and doesn’t require a change in our daily routine to do it. This is not magic. It is what the brain was designed to do in the first place. The difference is that you are making sure that you are receiving the programs for success and not surrender to the negative reinforcement of the general public, society, friends, and relatives. Remember, whatever you feed your mind on a daily basis and focus consistently will result in what your life is about (information x focus = reality).
To achieve your goals you have to program your mind the right way.
Listening to audios is the one thing that you can do in addition to anything else that you are doing so there is no additional time spent (ie. getting ready in the morning, working out, cooking, cleaning, driving to and from work, or even going to the bathroom). Listening enables you to obtain knowledge, build confidence, and create the attitude and posture needed to take action.
At a minimum, listen to at least two titles per week. I encourage you to hold each other accountable. You can easily report to your sponsor each week. The Measuring and Monitoring Worksheet found in the Getting Started Guide, will help you and those listening to stay on track and to utilize the audios to a greater depth.
