When I was a little child, I grew up in Germany during the time of the country being divided. There was a general belief that the wall would be there for a very, very long time, as my grandmother would say to me: "This wall is not going to come down in your lifetime." By the time I was a young adult political unrest started in Eastern Europe and Russia. Low and behold, the Berlin Wall actually came down in 1989. Something I thought was not possible for a long time all of a sudden happened and I and many other Germans had to change our belief that the Wall would be there forever.
Think of beliefs you want to have to support you in your goal. Think of at least three or four empowering beliefs that you want. As you think of those beliefs that help you in your outcome, write them down, put them on a post it note on your fridge or your mirror, your closet, your computer screen saver. Make those beliefs available to your brain. Walking by and glancing at the beliefs several times a day, your brain impregnates these beliefs over time and you will collect evidence around you that things are changing.
And now that you know what you believe I ask you to think about who you are in regards to your outcome. Having your goal achieved fully: Who are you now, how are you different from before? What are some statements you can make about yourself. What comes to your mind, when you say: "I AM ..." What is a metaphor that comes to your mind?
A person who wants to weigh less could say things like: "I am slim", "I am beautiful" and a metaphor that might fit their goal could be a "flying bird" or a "tall tree" or a "blooming flower". The person who wants to have their own business could say things like: "I am a business owner", "I am successful" and their metaphor or symbol could be something like a "dollar bill" or a "sturdy house" or how about a "pillar", just to give you some ideas.
What are statements that you make about yourself when you have your outcome? Frame them as I AM statements and fill in the blank. Excellent.
What is your metaphor or symbol that speaks to you and signifies the outcome you want to achieve? Symbols, analogies and metaphors are the language of the other than conscious mind. You make a direct link in your brain to your subconscious by creating a symbol for your outcome. Lets think of some examples. For someone who wants to be a good parent a "hen with chicks" might be a nice metaphor. Someone who wants to be a better team member a "grove of aspen" might work well. What comes to your mind when you think of someone who wants to be healthy? Images like a "still lake" or "white clouds" or a "locomotive" might come to mind. Think of items that metaphorically express who you are when you have your goal fulfilled.
Now that you know your new identity the most important question becomes: How do you make your contribution to the world by achieving your goal? How do you, by being successful, actually make this world a better place? Who else is going to be positively effected by you getting what you want. A lot of people are worried that when they want something for themselves, like health or money or even happiness, that they are being selfish. And the amazing truth is, the more you fulfill your own dreams and live a happy and healthy life the more you raise the energetic vibration of everybody and help everybody else to become successful in what they want. By you doing what you need and want to do for yourself, others will automatically profit.
A person who has more money can give more to charity and can do more good than the person who lives from paycheck to paycheck and is broke all the time. Right? It makes sense to me and I really hold my intent that it makes sense to you also. There is something so profound and wonderful when we truly, even on a cellular level, understand that our success is a blessing for the rest of the world and encourages everybody else's success. Just try this idea on for a while and notice what happens in your life.
