We all have our own special skills and traits that make us unique, that make us who we are. With a little effort, anyone can transform their lives and become a true alchemist. It’s about dreaming big, having an action plan, and acting it out NOW. Each person has the ability to take these aspects of themselves and develop them to their full potential.
Here Are 5 Key Steps to Being Your Own Hero
1 – Mindset
First you need to get into the mindset of your superhero. Adopting a mantra can be very effective when making this switch. Choose a phrase that moves you emotionally to become the superhero that you desire to be. Repeat this mantra to yourself regularly, to reaffirm your confidence in yourself and in your own skills.
Save this mantra as the background of your cellphone or desktop – plaster it on your mirror or onto a door you walk in and out of every day.
Examples Of Mantra:
- “Be the change you want to see in the world”
- “Fall seven times, stand up eight”
- “Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today”
- “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take”
- “Do one thing every day that scares you”
2 – Power of Visualization
Take some time aside to visualize what you intend to do – this will be very important in establishing a purpose for your heroic self. Imagine the ideal future that you are building for yourself. Envision yourself in the future. What would you like to see accomplished? How would you go about doing it? And why would you do it? This is where the idea “dream big” really pays off.
Make an “Impossible List
” like the one I did a few years ago – it really changed my life…
3 – Effective Goal Setting
Now with the vision still fresh in your mind it’s important to write down the answers to 6 simple questions. By taking the time to analyze your visualisation you will uncover the secret to effective goal setting. These hidden gems are the logical steps, created by your own mind, which will enable you to construct your vision. Use the scenario brought forward in your visualization as a road map by asking yourself:
1. Who Were You Affiliated With?
Think of what type of people surrounded you and your ideal future.
2. What Did You Accomplish?
Remember all of the goals you’ve achieved.
3. Where Did Events Take Place?
Pinpoint the part of the world in which your story unfolds, or at least where it began.
4. When Did The Events Transpire?
Try to narrow down the timeline.
5. Why Did You Do What You Did?
Give yourself purpose and drive by figuring this question out.
6. How Did You Do What You Did?
Write down the steps that led up to the accomplishment of your goals.
4 – The Art of Now
Now with a firm understanding of your visualized future, it’s time to take action, and there’s no time like the present. You much learn to embrace the moment of now, and one of the simplest ways to do that is with a technique I like to call “Dumb Action.” Ask yourself, “what small step can I take right now that will bring me closer to my goals?” There is always an e-mail that you could send, a phone call you could make, an errand you could run, or a connection you could establish. At any given moment you can be actively taking the necessary steps to achieve your dreams.
Ask Yourself, “What’s a Simple Action Step I WILL take right NOW?”
Even if you only have 5 minutes, there is always something you can do to help you progress towards your goal. Every little step you take brings you one step closer to your dreams, and we all know every journey must begin with a single step.
5 – Find Your Tribe
Once you get into the habit of trusting yourself and believing in your own personal mission, you will want to surround yourself with other heroes that are doing the same. Teaming up with like-minded people will help dramatically improve your personal development, as well as help you achieve your professional goals and ambitions. In time you will learn to trust not only yourself, but also your tribe, and your beliefs will grow to encompass those of the group, propelling your life into realms you thought were once impossible.
