Creating Your Design For Your Ideal Life – Part 34

Streamlining Your Environment

relaxed-cat The easier, the more relaxing, the more peaceful, the happier and the more comfortable you make this for yourself, the better. This is putting yourself into the perfect position for allowing.

For myself, I enjoy sitting on the sofa, starring out at the lovely view we have of a local beauty spot near us called Chanctonbury Ring which is on the Sussex South Downs. I often sit watching the clouds and sunshine as it goes over The Downs. I find it very relaxing and, as a friend of mine said when he came round the other day, ‘that’s a view you’d never get bored of.’

Therefore, I am relaxed; I feel very happy and I feel very grateful. I am of course very comfortable; it is peaceful. Now there is some road noise, but instead of finding it annoying, I choose to think of it as rhythmic and therefore peaceful, i.e. I am making the very best out of whatever situation I am in.

Creating Your Design For Your Ideal Life – Part 33

Don’t let your design own you

secure The power of underwriting your intention. I used to be the sort of person who dared not to dream. People would say to me, ‘Oh I’ve taken this car for a test drive.’ I’d think, why have they done that? They cannot afford it and the likelihood of them ever getting it was highly unlikely. Unfortunately I turned out to be right in nearly all of the occasions this sort of thing happened.

However, most, if not all of them, didn’t get their desires and this was because of the process, or rather the lack of one in the attainment of the desire. However, I am happy to say the odd one did and this inspired me to look again at this and now I think it is a good method. However, it is only lacklustre at best without the other parts of the process, so on its own it will provide poor results.

So I went about getting my desires the hard way and I didn’t ‘underwrite’ my intention because I hadn’t learnt the power of detachment. Now I can spend time looking at something I truly desire in a showroom and considering whether or not I truly desire it. I can take things for a test drive, however, I don’t desire this sort of thing very often, as I enjoy using the power of my mind. But going in and experiencing some of the visual stuff which pictures cannot give you, experiencing the feel, the smells, the sounds and the tastes where possible, really do help to underwrite your ‘crystal clear’ intention.

You Have Your Designs… What Next?

transformation-and-change When an architect roughs up a drawing and then works on it again and again and again. Changing big things at first, throwing the entire design away and starting from scratch. Or maybe they’ll create multiple different designs until they know what they are looking for.

Then when they have settled on a design they will work on smaller and smaller details, which include drawing the area around where their design sits. They will design this picture in every detail until it becomes a reality for them.

At that point it is a great design and is handed over to the draughtsman who goes into much greater detail. Defining everything down to where the plug sockets go. Read the rest of this entry »

How I Figured Out They Had It Wrong

a-system I should point out that I never read ‘how to do it’ books before I made my millions in property. I was staggered when I found out that someone had written a system down and I could have followed that instead. This was after spending months figuring it out for myself!

I started to read, and read like if I didn’t, all the books would disintegrate and the wisdom would be lost! Then one day I heard someone speak and she showed the statistics of only 1% of people ever actually retiring rich. I was shocked, really stunned to my core. I didn’t know it then, but that changed my life as I thought it was bloody ridiculous to have a failure rate like that without anyone doing anything about it. I didn’t realise then that I would devote a lot of my time to getting that statistic changed. And until this year I did not realise that I was going to devote the rest of my life to it.

Creating Your Design For Your Ideal Life – Part 30

We are all Architects

nag Every book on goal setting tells you that you must read your designs for five, ten, twenty minutes each day and read them aloud and visualize them as you do.

Every single one of them tells you this is what you must do. Back in the real world of course, what happens is you miss a day or you think at the start that you cannot give up that much time. You either start off or end up thinking this is b****cks, I can’t do this. The result is complete non-action which equals a 99% failure rate in the self-help business.

Your goals end up looking like work, smelling like hard effort and tasting like a job. These ridiculous restrictions end up creating the very problem which the goal-setting designers (teachers) are trying to break with their regimented approach, which is complete procrastination.

Don’t Make It Worse

new-years-resolution-ideas_0 You have to be careful to not set up design which specifically intensifies the problem. For example, as I’ve said before, the reason New Years resolutions do not work is because they are all about the things which people don’t want. So when you are designing, lose any such as, “I am out of debt”.

Now I know this is stated correctly, but predominantly it is about something which you do not want. I remember when I set my goal to be out of debt. It was in 1991 and I was £15,000 in debt. That was a lot of money back then! It was about the equivalent of one year’s income after tax.

Everyone I knew had debts and mine were far bigger than most people I knew. However, I set my goal to be out of debt within two years and I achieved it in about 16 months. But I am the one exception to the rule I ever met. It worked for me because I knew what I desired, I worked diligently towards the goal and I delayed gratification by changing my lifestyle. I visualised the benefit of being out of debt and hung onto that. Read the rest of this entry »

Creating Your Design For Your Ideal Life – Part 28

By Andy Shaw | October 19, 2010

Success simply requires self-knowing.

yes-i-can I know I can do great stuff… I know I can create… I know myself, and I know I do not know everything. But I know I will know all I need to know when I require it.

If you don’t know you know, then you don’t know. You do not have this power ‘yet.’ But if you know that ‘if’ you acquired it, then it would be the greatest power you could obtain to propel your life in the direction you desire to go. Then would you make it a priority to acquire it? If so, then simply just create a design to have it.

I didn’t need to create this design, as once I fixed my mind I had it automatically. However, the traits I wanted to develop, I created designs for and you can do exactly the same thing. Your design for example is ‘I know I create’. Currently you may still have faulty designs (bugs in your mind) like, ‘I think I create sometimes,’ or ‘I believe I can create when I put my mind to it.’ No, you create, you just don’t yet ‘know’ you do. And for that you need to conceive it as real. Read the rest of this entry »

Creating Your Design For Your Ideal Life – Part 27

A Master of Disguise

pain Your self-sabotage can come in all sorts of disguises. However, behind the disguise it is just your ego reminding you of some perceived or actual pain. Or it will be from your ego reminding you of how you failed previously. Or it will be more subtle and just be a follow on from more ingrained actions.

For example, let’s say due to not having enough money you’ve always had to buy used cars. Each time it became time to buy a replacement, you’d either look at your finances and decide to spend the same amount again as you did last time, or maybe a little better. You would think you were being fully conscious. You may look for a few seconds into buying a new car but then instantly decide that you cannot afford it. Read the rest of this entry »

Your Worst Enemy

look-in-the-mirror To see your worst enemy simply look in a mirror. Self-sabotage can come at any time. When your mind is not present, your defences are down and you will self-sabotage yourself. No enemy other than yourself can do as much damage to you. And what’s more you allow 100% of the damage to be done yourself… Now that’s a real enemy.

Before starting to write this morning I went onto Facebook as I occasionally do and there was a question posed:-

Here’s a challenge I’m going to lay down. I’m 45 (6) this year. Used to box so still have a sound ‘mindset’. I NEED to lose weight and need to create a 7 figure income… Again I have the ‘mindset’ What could ‘YOU’ offer as a friend to support my quest? Read the rest of this entry »

I Intend To Remove This

new-years-resolution-ideas Never set an intention up to remove something, it just won’t work, it will just create more of what you don’t want! If you doubt this then take a look at peoples’ New Year resolutions. They don’t work because they are always about what you don’t want!

When it comes to airing your adverts, remember you are here to create not compete. Competition is all about trying to bolster your poor self-image. The only person you want to compete with is yourself, i.e. your consciousness wants to compete with your unconscious mind. Read the rest of this entry »
