Have you ever wondered, will I be successful? I'm going to share with you 6 signs that you will be successful and it's not what you think. I'm so happy you're here. Let's dive right in.
Before we get to number one real quick, if you haven't yet, make sure you download my free success hypnosis right there down below. In my opinion, the number one absolute sure fire away that you will become successful is using hypnosis is starting to reprogram the subconscious mind. I made this for myself about seven years ago. I had incredible success, so then when I started doing this YouTube channel, I put it up online for free and now over 600,000 people from all over the world have used it. Everyday i get fantastic stories and letters of people having success stories and I'd love to hear yours too.
Number one you see a clear image of what it is that you want.
See, a lot of people dismiss the power of their own mind when in fact, what you can see in your mind you will eventually hold in your hand. Most people do the opposite because everything is really two things. What you want or the absence of what you want. A lot of people want money or they want a good job or they want to attract their soulmate.
They have a goal but their mind is inversely focused. Meaning that the mind is focused on the absence of it. They know what they want, but the mind is focused on the fact that they don't have it and they don't even realize that that's happening because the mind is conditioned to build it's attention based off of the information that the physical senses give it. And the physical senses are often giving information to the mind that says, I do not have the money. I am not successful yet. Because you look at your mobile banking and the money you have isn't there yet, or the goal that you have, the financial goal, you don't have it yet...
So your physical senses are giving you, in essence, limiting feedback. The question that changed my life is does your thinking control your bank account or does your bank account control your thinking? I realized that my bank account was controlling my thinking. I was living in a reactionary consciousness to what I saw in the external environment. What that was doing was further building images in my mind that I didn't have the money that I wanted or I didn't have the job that I wanted, or I didn't have the income that I wanted, and so I had to start to do the inverse. I had to start holding the images of what I actually wanted.
Wallace Wattles says "to think what you want to think is to think truth regardless of appearance." That's the important part. At the end, regardless of the appearance to think what you want to think and what you want to think is prosperity. I saw clearly this YouTube channel getting millions of views every month. I saw clearly that this channel was inspiring millions of people.
I saw clearly that I was a millionaire. I saw clearly my dream home. I saw clearly my ideal relationship, even though the physical environment said I didn't have those things. So what began to happen is the images I was holding in my mind, regardless of the outside appearance, those images I held went into my subconscious mind. What you see in your mind, you will hold in your hand. I started to see my exterior environments shifting because I was no longer allowing it to control my thinking anymore.
Number two, you regularly surround yourself and contemplate yourself surrounded by the circumstances that you're intending to manifest.
You're contemplating yourself, always surrounded by these images. So for me, I used what I call the record player technique. Over and over and over I would imagine this scenario where I would sit down at my Mac desktop and you know it's a black screen right when it's not used for a minute. Then you got to shake the mouse to make the screen come on. And I would shake the mouse, make the screen come on. I'd press the refresh button on the web browsers. I'd press that on my YouTube and when I would press that, I would see hundreds and thousands of comments and notifications and video going viral out of nowhere and all of these new subscribers and all these people saying, Oh my God, this is changing my life.
I would see that in my mind. My exterior environment did not align or coincide with that because I wasn't getting any progress. I was publishing videos, spending a lot of money, spending a lot of time on building this thing that I wasn't getting any return on investment for. I had to stop allowing the environment, In this instance who was my YouTube stats and the number of views or lack thereof on my channel, I had to stop letting that control my thoughts and I had to start con contemplating myself surrounded by the circumstances I intended to manifest. So if I had what I wanted, what might be some circumstances happening? And so I imagined a scenario where I would refresh my browser, all of these comments, all these videos, my channel went viral overnight. And I would replay this over and over and over again in my head.
And I would imagine it when I meditated, when I visualized, when I listened to my hypnosis, when I was in the shower, it didn't matter. I did it all day. Right? And that's why I say the hypnosis is so important. It's right there down below!
I would contemplate myself using the record player technique. And the craziest thing is my wife and I were camping sometime later and my channel still hadn't taken off. I had to get into internet cafe in order to get internet to publish a video. And when I got in there, I opened up my laptop and I refreshed the browser, what happened? My channel went viral within 48 hour period and the some of the circumstances were different. I was on my laptop instead of my desktop.
A couple of things like that but in essence that exact same thing happen and then things just started happening really quickly in my life. So I invite you to ask yourself what might be something that would happen if I did get what I wanted and then use the record player technique to replay that little snippet of future reality over and over and over again.
Number three, you are in process over outcome.
Abraham Maslow, he is a very famous psychologist and he says that the goal of life is self actualization. He says less than 3% of the global population is self-actualized. Meaning that they have uncovered their powers, they are living a very purposeful life and they have accomplished, they've set, they've created a vision for their life and they are accomplishing it or in the process of accomplishing it.
And he said that there's a couple of steps to be self-actualized or common threads between self actualized people. One of them is that they're in process over outcome. Which means that in essence the same thing we talked about earlier, you're no longer reacting to your outside environment and being like, Oh, it's not coming yet. Look, I'm not making progress. Right?
Most people start and stop it or they give up because they're not getting progress and they say, Oh, I guess it's not meant to be because they're reacting to the lack of statistics in their favor. They're reacting to the lack of dating in an ideal relationships around them, they're reacting to the lack of commas in their bank account. Then it controls their thoughts and the thoughts control their behaviors and their actions. It becomes a pattern and routine of thinking and being. It becomes a habit.
So process over outcome means that you're doing what you're doing for the process of it, not to get something. The irony of this is when you're in the process, you're in essence detached from the outcome, which actually creates your desired outcome. And when you're attached to the outcome, you're in a place of need and desperation which blocks the outcome that you want.
So what I'm inviting you to consider is how can you let go of need? When you can let go of that and you can say, I trust the timing of the universe. I trust God's plan. I have this vision and I am in the process of becoming the best version of myself and I'm happy right now and I know great things are coming and I will get X, Y, andZ , but I'm not worried about the timeframe... When that happens, you actually speed up the process of getting what you want quicker in your life.
number four, you see it as your right to be successful.
A lot of people think that if they become successful, they're taking away from other people's success or they're going to draw too much attention to themselves. Or they're afraid to be rich or powerful or successful and somehow they're a bad person if they are. In fact, it's your right to be rich. If you have more money, more success and more power, you can make the world a better place. Success, money, power. They only make you more of what you already are. So if you're a generous, great person, what you're going to be able to do is more of God's work. You're going to be able to make more of an impact.
You're going to be able to be more generous. You're going to be able to help your community, your society, and your world more. You're going to be a person that is using power to benefit mankind, benefit your children, and your community. You will make the world a better place. It is your right to be successful. To the degree that you don't believe it is is to the degree that you will block the success that you want.
Number five, you don't tear other people down.
A lot of times when we don't have the success that we want, we can get in a tendency to judge everyone else that is successful as a unconscious way to protect ourselves from our own feelings of inadequacy or insecurities or our lack of contentment with where we are in our life.
What I invite you to do is start finding very successful people and at least in your mind, start building the habit of seeing it as a sign that you can do it too. Anyone who has accomplished anything, you can do that too. It's a sign that you can do it too, because we're all one.
We all have access to the same mind, the same creativity, the same resources, and if we can start changing our perception from that person is somehow a special breed. They're like an alien. They're so different. They're so successful. When we can start to see ourselves in them, what happens is we send the message to our subconscious mind that this level of success is possible for us as well.
Last but not least sign is that you're brainwashing yourself for success. Psychologist say we have 65,000 thoughts in a day, and 95% of our life is subconscious. So what that means is the vast majority of our life is habit. We are creatures of habit, creatures of thought habits and behavior habits.
People often want to change their behaviors in life. Well, that's actually a lot slower route because where do your behaviors come from? Oh, I want to stop this action. I want to stop this behavior. Where do they come from? They come from thoughts and beliefs. So the first step is to change your thoughts and beliefs. If the habit of thought changes, the habit of behavior will follow it. If the habit of belief and thought change, your actions will change. So it all begins and ends in the mind.
