Persistence and hard work do not guarantee that you will achieve your goals. What then?

Does persistence and hard work guarantee that you will achieve your goal? NO! Persistence is an important personality trait, however, hard work without heart doesn't serve you.

I attended a Literary Faire to promote "Yikes!! My Butt's Falling" and sat next to an author who didn't really enjoy the marketing end of promoting her book. I could certainly relate to her feelings, yet both of us knew that marketing is what gets the book the exposure it needs.

Another author involved in the program experienced phenomenal success beginning with her first book. She is now on her third. After her talk, the author sitting next to me said, "I resent that."

I asked her why.

Her response, "It's a miracle to experience the kind of success she's experienced with her first book and she didn't do anything to deserve it. She hasn't worked hard. I've been working very hard and haven't experienced that kind of success."

That author will never experience the kind of success she longs for because her focus is on the lack of it. You cannot have that which you deny another.

Why? Because when you do, your focus is on the "not having." Whether we like it or not, we are constantly programming ourselves through our thoughts, through our beliefs, and through our self-talk.

It has been estimated that as many as 90,000 thoughts a day flit through our brains. Most of those thoughts are the same ones over and over. If the majority of those thoughts are negative, you are actually programming your subconscious mind to believe that is the truth about you.

Since we have the ability to program ourselves to believe negative things about ourselves, we also have the ability to program ourselves to believe positive things.

Here are some tips to assist you in flushing out thinking that no longer benefits you, reframing your thoughts, and creating an inner cheerleader.

1. First - begin to pay attention to the thoughts taking up space in your head.

2. Notice how the thought makes you feel. For instance does it feel joyful, meaningful, happy, sad, jealous, etc.

3. If you catch yourself in a thought that doesn't feel good, stop and consciously choose another thought to replace it.

4. Make a commitment to focus more of your thoughts on your dreams, goals, and the vision you hold for your life.

5. Appreciate yourself as you undertake this process.

Good luck and may your dreams come true .
