Do you believe it's possible to make 2017 the best year yet? Well, now’s the perfect time to start planning for it. But before you start thinking more about your epic goals for 2017, you need watch this video.
During a livecast on Facebook earlier this week, John Assaraf shared a story about the powerful "backwards thinking" exercise his mentor taught him when he was 19 years old. Watch the video below for the full story . . . you'll also gain important insight on how to plan for your success in 2017.
If you want to make 2017 your best year yet, start by thinking backwards . . .
(NOTE: If you'd like to havepersonal interaction with John and be able to ask the questions that are most important to you . . . or if you need help setting yourself up for unprecedented success in the coming year, sign up for LIVE small group sessions now.)
If you’re like most people, the number one thing holding you back from your ultimate potential is that you don’t actually take the time to figure out the best way to plan for your achievements. (You have to do more than just think, hope, and/or pray about having an awesome year filled with creativity, wealth, and prosperity.)
O.K., let's say you do want to make a million dollars next year. How will you plan for that?
Set the goal for earning a million dollars in 2017 . . . then answer these questions.
1. What skills do you need to have or have on your team to make a million dollars?
2. What resources do you need in the manpower realm and financial department?
This is "backwards thinking." When you think backwards from the goal that you want to achieve, you start to get your brain to figure out how you can do it instead of why you can't.
Once you've set your goal and done some backwards thinking, you have to now BELIEVE it, right? Because if you don't believe that you can achieve a million dollars for any reason (i.e. you think you don't have the knowledge, the skills, or the resources), do you think you'll put forth the major effort it takes to earn a million dollars?
The right prefrontal cortex has all your past data about goals you set but haven't fulfilled.
After you have your big goal in mind, the right prefrontal cortex of your brain—that's linked to your memory—checks in with your self-esteem to assess whether or not you feel you're worthy of achieving the specific goal. This area of the brain wants to know if you think you're smart enough, good enough, capable, confident, and skillful enough to see it through.
If there are neural patterns in your memory that are self-limiting, that information is going to mess with your motivational circuit.
And if your motivational circuit shorts out, the genius part of your brain (left prefrontal cortex) that comes up with solutions to big challenges—like making one million dollars in one year—will revert back to what's most comfortable.
When this happens, the goal of having the best year ever in 2017 will fade into a distant memory . . . all because of an irrational fear of having to do whatever it is you have to do to achieve your goals.
But even if you feel stuck in the comfort zone of what’s safe and what’s normal for you, there's still time to step out and have your best year yet!
Based on the latest research in neuroscience and the neuropsychology of success, when you set a goal, use your imagination, or use your deductive reasoning—which is a part of your brain that can take a look at all the options and deduce what you want—you activate your brain to release dopamine (the feel good chemical). And when that happens you get excited about making a million dollars in 2017!
(I learned all of this vauable information from watching the above video. Thank you, John!)
