The way we learn to do anything is by focusing on what we want, trying to get it and then analyzing what happened. From there, in order to learn, we must remember what worked, dismiss what did not work and try again. If we continually go through the this procedure of remembering what we did right, forgetting what we did wrong and trying again, we will eventually learn how to get what we want. Unfortunately, when we don’t get the result we want, many of us focus on the things we did wrong and dismiss what we did right. And whenever we continually focus on what we did wrong, even though we tell ourselves NOT to do it, our minds automatically do it again!
The next time you do not get the result you want, ask yourself these two questions. What did I do right? And, what could I do differently to get the result I want? This will help you to repeat what you did right and allow you to come up with new ideas that will propel you toward getting the result you want.
