Are Our Minds Like a Sat Nav?

I'm starting to believe that our minds are more like a Sat Nav than we could ever image.

With the Sat Nav we put the destination in (postcode) then we listen to the directions to get there.  So what if we just had to put our goal into our mind and then listen to the instructions to get there.

All the successful business coaches use goal setting as a huge part of what they recommend.   There are endless books written all using goal setting as the way to move forward.  Athletes use visualisation of seeing themselves winning (already having the goal) as part of their training.  Religions ask us to pray for what we want (set the goal).

So why haven’t we all got what we want? 

  • Firstly we don’t set the goal, we don’t have a destination.  We drift along like a raft in the sea just being bounced around where life takes us, oblivious to the fact that we could make a difference.  We occasionally dream of something better, but without any serious intent, without writing it down and without visualising and feeling ourselves already having it, it won’t happen. Imagine going out in your car without a destination, you could end up anywhere, or even nowhere, just going round in circles.

  • Secondly, if we have set our goal, then we don’t always listen to the directions/ guidance when we get it.  We shut ourselves off to the instructions on how to get there.  We carry on doing the same things, expecting to get the perfect result.  There is a saying that madness is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting to get a different result.  We have to make change for change to happen.  If you become aware and listen you will hear the guidance, it is there whispering to you get up, focus, you can do it, it is nudging you along and as you listen synchronicity will start to happen.  The right people and situations will turn up at the right time, and your life will turn around.  It’s like a magic that happens when you listen and take action.  All the successful people know about this, they either do it naturally or have learned it.

So let’s go for it.  Set the goals, write them down, visualise yourself having them, feel what if feels like to have them, then LISTEN.  Listen to the guidance and take action, do it.  Could it all be as simple as programming your Sat Nav!
