Do you want to program your mind, and hack your body to stay in a positive state, a state of action taking throughout the day? I suggest you read on. We will look at 3 critical elements that successful people are doing that you can model to program your mind to be in the state of succeeding from the moment upon waking, and make decisions throughout the day that will lead you towards your desires.
Being more conscious in your day-to-day decisions will lead you to take the appropriate actions to reach your goals. Have a purpose with life, act according to your values, and don’t let people tell you what to do or how things should be.
When you start to make more conscious decisions, you will start to think about if this is going to take you closer to your goals or drift you further away. Why are you doing what you’re doing right now? Why are you reading this? Nothing else to do?
There are 3 things we have to consciously start doing.
- Write down your goals.
- Create a powerful belief system.
- Invest in yourself.
1. Write down your goals.
The first thing you do in the morning will determine what your day is going to be like. Program your mind to be in a powerful state from the moment upon waking, and you are guaranteed to have a productive and great day. How you can do this is by writing your goals down, every morning. Then, once you’ve done that, circle the most important goal, the goal that in the long-term will have the most impact on your life. Now ask yourself this question: “What actions can I make today that will change everything and take me closer to this goal?” Write down all the actions you can think of, circle the two most important ones and start doing them. Don’t stop until it’s done.
Goals that are not written down are merely wishes. The power of writing goals as if you’re already there takes us to point number 2.
2. Create a powerful belief system.
Ask any successful person what their number one rule for succeeding is. They all have this in common: They believe in themselves and what they’re doing, and they are not afraid to say it. If you don’t believe in yourself, why would anyone else?
When people ask you about your goals in life, don’t be afraid to say it out loud. If you have high goals, they might laugh and look at you funny. But if you’re insecure about your goals, you will make insecure decisions that will lead you nowhere. Go against the grain, stand out. After all, how many people in the world today are actually living the dream? Now, how many of these people will respond something in the likes of “I don’t know” if you ask what their goals are? Be determined and believe in yourself. People will respect you for having the guts for going after what you truly desire.

3. Invest in yourself
A wise man was once asked what the best possible investment someone could make. His answer was short, sweet and simple: “Invest In Yourself.”
The man’s name is Warren Buffett. He is known as the world’s greatest investor, and according to Forbes has a net worth of $53.5 Billion. Hiring a personal coach, getting a membership at a gym, buying healthy foods, books and education are not expenses. They are investments: investments in yourself.
Some things you can do today to invest in yourself are:
- Go to the gym and train.
- Stop reading books. Few read the books they buy, but even fewer remembers what they read. Stop reading books and start studying books.
- Take notes. Never leave home without a pen and a piece of paper. The best ideas often comes in the least appropriate times, write them down. Don’t trust your mind to remember them—it won’t. Writing it down right away will also allow your mind to store and come up with more ideas.
- Learn a new skill.
- Do something for yourself.
Last piece of advice and rule to follow: Keep on, keeping on. Sometimes things get hard and the road seems too long. You just have to keep on, keeping on. Revisit your goals and start imagining, all of the sudden you’ve changed your state and you’re on the right track again.
The track that will take you to greatness. Use these 3 keys to create your destiny and achieve what you want in life.
