They say 95% of the population is not clear. And that’s the main reason they don’t get what they want.
Sounds so ridiculously simple. Just get truly clear. Why don’t people do it?
I think there are two reasons why people don’t “get clear”
1. Fear. What if I get clear on my dearest dreams and they never come true.
I had this fear too. I think most of us have it to some degree. The fear comes from lizard brain’s protective mechanism that wants to keep us in the comfort zone. And it also comes from not understanding how this reality works.
2. Not understanding what True Clarity means. Most of us pretty much have figured out how to set clear goals. The problem is that just goal-setting is not enough.
I’ll discuss in detail each of those points.
Number one reason we are staying where we are. Fear is what keeps people doing jobs that they hate, in relationships that don’t make them happy.
Fear is what prevents us from finding our true dreams and taking action on them.
Fear is what our lizard brain or logical mind uses to protect us.
Why? Because where we are is a known territory. We might not be happy here. But we are safe.
“Safe” is the only thing our lizard brain is concerned about. Screw happiness. Screw fulfillment. Screw life purpose. Let’s stay where it is safe.
Change is not safe. Anything that doesn’t come with 100% guarantee is not safe. So let’s stay here. That’s the logic of the lizard brain.
How does it keep us here in the “safe” place? By making us doubt, procrastinate, worry, never get clear on what we truly want and never take actual wholehearted action on what we truly want.
Breakthroughs happen when things get not so “safe” anymore
Ever noticed that major breakthroughs people usually have is when they are pushed against the wall or when they hit the rock bottom and there is nowhere else to go but up.
That’s because the only way for lizard brain to let us do something is to show it that “here” is not safe anymore.
Stupid isn’t it? I went through this experience firsthand, I’ll tell you the story some day.
Fear also comes from not understanding the nature of reality. No, I won’t talk about the Secret and Law of Attraction. But really, we fly to the Moon for God’s sake.
Truly, anything is possible if you put your mind to it.
The only law I believe in is the Law of Abundance. This world is full of abundant choices and opportunities. All we have to do is notice them and take action on them.
And that’s where Clarity comes into play. Without being fully clear, you’ll never notice and never take action on anything.
What is True Clarity?
The second reason we never actually get clear is because so many of us don’t fully understand what True Clarity means.
True Clarity starts from knowing your True Self and Your Purpose you came here with. Purpose comes from knowing yourself too. That’s actually your primary purpose on this Earth is to be who you are. To live Your Truth.
Setting goals that don’t come from your True Authentic Self is a hit and miss game. Why? Of course, you can still reach them. But in reaching them not only your mind (lizard brain) will resists. But your soul will resist too.
Double resistance. Result? The goal will never make you happy and will feel like lots of struggle to reach.
Again, can you reach it? Sure you can. If you push long enough and hard enough, you can reach anything, but what’s the cost and what’s the point?
Want an easy way? Get clear on who you are first. Get clear on your Authentic Vision.
Then and only then set clear goals aligned with Your Truth. This way you’ll get the soul on your side.
Mind is only one that will be left to convince after your soul is on your side but if you know the tricks it’s going to be easy too.
Now that the goal is clear, you got your mind focused. It will start noticing opportunities. To get it to take action on them you have to make it believe that the goal is reachable.
Three steps to help convince your mind:
Reduce the importance as much as possible. I know, sounds weird, but trust me it works. Consciously reduce the importance of the goal.
Why? Because when the goal is too important, lizard brain gets activated. What if I fail at reaching this important goal? What a disappointment that’s going to be.
Lizard brain will be activated within seconds and turn on its protective mechanism. It doesn’t want you to be disappointed. It will make sure you stay where you are, where it is “safe”.
While consciously reducing the importance, keep you ideal outcome in mind. Get into that ideal slide (you ideal reality) as often as you want.
Don’t overdo it though. That’s why lots of people fail at visualization. They start taking it too seriously. When you are taking it too seriously, you send the signal to your mind that the goal is too important. It turns on the protective mechanism.
Visualize for pleasure, when you feel like it. Don’t overdo it. Don’t pressure yourself.
Visualization or getting into your ideal slide helps your mind to believe, it impresses the goal into it.
Take The Next Step. Don’t worry about all the steps. Take the next step that you know.
You won’t know all of them anyway so stop worrying about knowing every single step to get where you want to be.
Again, do it consciously. Consciously tell yourself that the only step you are going to worry about is the next step. And take it. Then you’ll know the next step. Take it.
The more steps, the more comfortable your mind becomes. It sees that there is no danger. It starts believing you more and more. And as a result taking action becomes easier and easier.
Opportunities seem to appear everywhere. They were there all along. It’s just since now the mind is more comfortable and doesn’t feel endangered with the goal, it helps you notice opportunities more and more often. Until one day you find yourself living the dream. Until one day you gain True Freedom.
Get clear on who you are. Find the goals aligned with Your Truth to get your soul on your side and to actually experience happiness and fulfillment from reaching those goals. Convince your mind using the steps above. Until one day you find yourself living Your Dream.
Do it. It works.
