Are you a rudderless boat being tossed about in life’s sea or are you on course to get what you want from life?  These might be difficult questions to answer but the secret to getting the changes you want in life starts here - being clear about how you want your changed life to look.

“Do you know where you’re going to, do you like the things that life has shown you, where are you going to, do you know?”

Whether you recognise the song or not, the words capture the first technique to manage your mind to get what you want in life and business.

It’s about setting your intentions and then finding out what’s getting in the way of making them happen. 

The likelihood is there are self-beliefs and negative thoughts lurking about in your subconscious working hard to keep you precisely where you are now. Nice and safe and secure, at least as far as your mind is concerned, even though you might not realise that’s where you want to be!

Yet recognising those thoughts is a great step forward and the start of getting rid of them.

But what to replace them with.  This is where positive affirmations come in, fortified by the power of visualizing the future you want.

Today we’re taking you back to school for a little revision session –starting with a little test - but don’t worry, you don’t have to tell us your score!  And by the end of it you’ll be up to speed with the 5 mind management techniques we’ve talked about on the Changeability Podcast so far.  

You’ll find out:

  • If you’re on course or being tossed about!
  • A simple question to uncover your purpose and goals.
  • The big difference between ends and means when it comes to your goals.
  • How to catch out your negative limiting beliefs.
  • Why Julian’s singing ‘Let it go’.
  • How to trick your subconscious into believing in yourself.
  • How to be the star in your own movie.

‘If you don’t like it – change it - may be simple to say but not so simple to do. Change can be hard. But it doesn’t have to be. You see it’s not your fault. Change is supposed to be difficult because that’s how we’re programmed to be. Yet once you understand that programming and how to work with it, you have a way to increase your success in whatever you want to do.’

This excerpt from Changeability – Manage your Mind – Change your Life sums up what we aim to do, not only with this book, but also on the Changeability Podcast. 

Our aim is to help you understand that internal mental programming and give you ways to work with it so you can change what you want to change, improve what you want to improve and have success in whatever you want to do.

This week on our 30th episode of the Changeability Podcast we look back at some of the key themes of the past 29 episodes.  These are the big ideas that underpin what we talk about on the podcast, write about in the blog and lie behind the Brilliant Living® products.

We believe that by understanding and taking these four themes on board you put yourself in a stronger position to make this quote come true for you.

“If you don’t like it – change it”

Do you like to daydream? As a child were you told off for daydreaming in the classroom when you were supposed to be doing your school work? Maybe you were imagining what you were going to do with your friends after school, or what you wanted to be when you grew up, or how great it would be when you were old enough to do what you wanted. 

If so don’t knock it, you were practicing a useful technique to help you get that life you dreamt of having.  Because visualization is like daydreaming on purpose.

“To dream by night is to escape your life. To dream by day is to make it happen.” Stephen Richards


And with some tips on how to make the most of your imaginings and a bit of practice you can hone your daydreaming so it becomes a great mind management tool for you. That’s what we help you to do in episode 29 of the Changeability Podcast.

Episode 29 The Changeability Podcast

This week’s episode is a slightly different format (not that we really have a set format!) – with a practical show of two halves.

In the first half we give you through a step by step visualization guide. We share exactly what you can do to get the most out of your visualization experience – and enjoy it as a positive step on the way to making it real for you.

In the second half we have a guided visualization for you to listen to. But only do so where it’s safe to listen and relax (so not while driving at 70mph down the motorway).

We wanted to give you a way to get started straight away on some visualization practice if you haven’t done it before – and if you’re already into visualization then it will give you another visualization to use.

We decided to share a visualization for abundance with you, as many people would like more abundance in their life.  An abundant life is one full of the things you want it to be full of, which for most of us includes love, security, health and money amongst other things.  

Free gift

We’re excited to hear what you think of this guided visualization and as a thank you for listening to our podcast and for taking action to develop your changeability, we would love to give you a separate mp3 recording of this visualization for free.  We do sell a version of this in the website shop which has two different voices, so you can have a male or female version – and if you’d like this you can buy it here.  Or you can get your FREE version (female voice) here.

We hope you enjoy it and look forward to hearing how you get on.

Specifically in this episode you find:

  • A step by step visualization guide to achieving your goals
  • The basic visualizing technique you can easily learn and do yourself
  • What to think about when you visualize
  • What to do if you can’t ‘see’ with your mind’s eye
  • How to be the star of the film of your life
  • You can be in the film or in the cinema
  • How to make it a ‘sensational’ experience

What does it take to be successful in any part of your life? 

Yes, setting goals.

Yes, being clear about what you want.

Yes, doing the work and putting in the hours to create or improve or develop the skill or the relationship – or whatever it is you want to achieve. 

But what if there was another ingredient that you could throw into the mix to give you that extra edge?  Would you use it to up your game or even get ahead of the competition?

These might sound like sporting metaphors and we’ve used them on purpose, because this is the very thing that many people, including sportspeople, use to give them that extra something that leads to their success.

So what is it that they have? Well it’s something we all have it’s just they use it for a specific purpose.  It’s IMAGINATION. 

They use the power of imagination to create the success they desire, and you can do the same.

It’s true that the imagination is where this success initially starts, and where it plays out until it becomes reality.

But in that imagining and playing out of your vision of what success looks like and how to get it, you’re planting the neural seeds that grow into expectation and even memory, both mental and physical.  

This is all about mindset and getting your subconscious mind to work for you.

If you’re after inspiration to imagine your way to success, you’ll find it in episode 28 of the Changeability Podcast where we look at some of the people who have done just this.

You’ll hear from and about people who’ve experienced massive success in their field, whether in sports or entertainment. But it’s not just about the rich and famous as we also share some more everyday examples of how visualization can help you imagine your way to success, whatever that success looks like to you.
