Successful professional athletes, musicians and business men and women that have achieved their goals can often point to repetition as a key to their prosperity and success. Undergoing both physical and mental training on a daily basis are keys for them to perform at their highest levels. Keeping their goals at the forefront of their thoughts, talking about the outcomes that they want to achieve and mentally seeing themselves achieving their goals are essential components of a repetitive practice that reaps great rewards.

Everyone can implement a similar success practice. Revisit goals daily to enable subconscious and spiritual intuition to illuminate possibilities in taking steps necessary to create the life that we love. This repetitive practice will shift our beliefs so that goals will be achieved sooner. Motivational speaker and author Earl Nightingale writes, “Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality.”

To realize goals sooner, set aside 20 minutes and follow three simple steps each morning:

Write down your goals and be specific in describing the desired outcome.

For example, instead of saying, “I want to lose 10 pounds,” say, “I’m so grateful that I am physically fit in a pain-free body that easily moves through life.” By spending time each day describing completed goals with gratitude, your beliefs will change and your subconscious can work with you to make those statements true.

Speak your goal statements aloud with emotion.

The practice of uttering your goal statements out loud anchors the meaning more fully internally. This practice helps to convince your subconscious that achieving your goals is possible. Ideas and thoughts that are in alignment with them will then become more noticeable.

Imagine yourself achieving your desired outcomes.

With eyes closed, create a clear picture of your realized goals in your mind each day. As you begin to feel yourself completing goals, spiritual intuition that emerges as gut instincts, strong thoughts and ideas, and messages that are external to you will become obvious. Take action as led by your intuition to manifest your dreams.

Repeat these steps every day to create new beliefs and achieve all that you desire sooner. Now is the time to enjoy increased prosperity and success in all of your endeavors.
