I am now going to explain a vital practical step for totally eliminating I-Can't from your vocabulary. This method is a powerful aid to boosting your I-Can belief and will open hundreds of doors for you - it certainly worked wonders for me. (Note: You will not be able to put this method into practice until you have read the next chapter on goal setting.)Here's what to do:
Take a piece of clean, white card about the size of a postcard; (in fact a completely blank postcard is ideal). Using a good quality pen (not a ball point, or pencil), write, in your very neatest handwriting, the following message to yourself:
I will be giving a full explanation of how to set your goals in chapter 9, but in order not to keep you in suspense, I will explain how to use this card now.
Twice a day, at your appointed time, and at your appointed place (see chapter 9), you will take this goal card and repeat out loud what is written thereon. After each reading you will then strongly VISUALISE the following:
Vividly see yourself walking down a corridor with many doors leading off on each side. Each door has a sign describing an opportunity or a life-enriching subject, for example : "HIGH SALARY", "SUCCESS IN LOVE", "WEALTH", "MUSIC", "ART", "SCIENCE", "SPORT", "LITERATURE", "BUSINESS SUCCESS".
As you walk past each door, see, in your mind's eye, the door swinging open and revealing a glittering, sparkling world. Feel the excitement each time a door opens.
Allow some doors to remain closed. See the DANGER - NO ENTRY and RESERVED signs on the door. Now mentally tear those signs down. Smash them on the floor and stamp on them. Now see those, hitherto locked doors swing open like the others.
This entire exercise need only take about three minutes twice a
day. I cannot overemphasize the powerful effects which such
visualisation can have.
If you don't believe anything else I say, please believe me when I tell you that this method WORKS. Thousands upon thousands of people have discovered for themselves the effect that goal-setting and visualisation can have, and these effects are dramatic.
