One of the most fulfilling things a person can do is take some kind of action that causes them to improve in a certain area of their life. Think about this from your own perspective for a second. Remember a time when you accomplished something that proved you had become “better”.
For me, when I first began my entrepreneurial career, one of my goals was to be a professional speaker. Despite how nervous I would get before a talk (mostly due to a total lack of experience), I got out and started speaking. I was mediocre at best. But I kept trying, learning, studying and practicing. When the opportunity came to speak to a huge group of new university students, I delivered my most confident and inspiring talk to-date. I still remember the rush of excitement at the end of the talk when a bunch of the students lined up to speak to me and ask me questions at the end. I knew I had taken a step in the right direction. The real win: I was improving and it was an awesome feeling!
For the past 3 years, I have spent most of my time developing my business and implementing as many self improvement ideas as I could. What I realized along the way was that I was not merely improving but I was actually reprogramming my mind to get rid of old habits and beliefs and instill new, more empowering ones. I was brainwashing myself.
Here are 7 things you might want to try that will help you brainwash yourself to a new and improved YOU:
Emulate a role model
Learn to trust the sound of your own voice
Hang out with an influencer
Wage a war against the crybaby voice in your head
Use new relationships to develop a new persona
Get the competitive edge
Get up early and study
