The 6 Step Process To Create Epic Results In Your Life

Stories of entrepreneurs breaking free from the mold of societal norms, risking it all, and making an impact strike you at your core. You’re addicted to success, because for whatever reason, you’re not the same as everyone else. Deep down inside, you know you have the same potential.The new year is upon us, and that means new goals, dreams, and motivation. This is your year to build your legacy, move mountains, and impact thousands, even millions of people with your vision.

There are far too many people out there making new years plans that are exactly the same as last year’s… because they haven’t followed through and achieved results.

Here’s the six step process to ensure you create epic results from new years motivation:

1. Craft your vision

Every success story started with a vision. What exactly is it that you want? This is the first step in harnessing motivation and turning it into results.

Write it all down, every single little detail. What kind of life are you going to live? What do you do? What’s a typical day like for you? How do you feel?

But here’s a trick: write it all out as if you’ve already accomplished it. By doing this, whenever you review your vision, you’re telling your subconscious it’s something that already happened. You aren’t wishing for a different future, you’re remembering your future reality.

Each time you wonder why you’re working, why you aren’t doing a normal 9-5 job, why you’re doing this crazy entrepreneurship thing – you’ll have a vision so crystal clear and grand that just your vision will make others jealous.

We’re trained to take the easiest option, the road more travelled… but if the only option is your vision, that’s the path you’re going to take.

“Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.” – Jonathan Swift 

2. Write out your why

After writing out your vision in meticulous detail, the next step is to write out the reasons why you want to accomplish the vision.

“My message is too powerful to be kept quiet. I’m going to live my dreams and passion. I want to make an impact on the world. I know I have the potential in me to change my current reality. I know too many people that are trapped in a life that makes them completely miserable and I’m not going to be one of them”.

If you don’t have a powerful enough why, then you’re not going to follow through. Simple as that. There will be long hours, there will be challenges, and there will be failure. Your why will push you forward.

 

3. Write your success timeline 

Now that you’ve written out exactly where you want to be in a year, work backwards and figure out exactly what you need to get done in six months, three months, and one month, then all the way down to the first four weeks.

What are the minimum things you must absolutely get done within those time periods to guarantee that you’re getting closer to your vision and your success? If your vision is great enough, it will be almost unbelievable to attain within a year.

Yet by writing down your success timeline, you not only define exactly what needs to happen to make you successful, you also come up with the roadmap to your vision. Every step becomes clear and laid out for you; there isn’t any confusion on what to do.

 

4. Renew your motivation

Eventually, whatever motivation you have will be drained. You’ll lose sight of your vision and won’t be in the frame of mind that produces action. This is why it is crucial to continually renew your motivation.

Review your vision, your why’s, and your success timeline daily. In fact, do it once right in the morning, and then again at least once more later in the day.

On top of that, read blogs like Addicted2success and remind yourself that there are many amazing people that had the same if not a rougher start than you did, and succeeded in spite of it all. The journey to success can be demotivating if you feel like you’re alone, so it’s important to prove to yourself continually that it can be done.

If you don’t remind yourself of your vision and the path that you’ve written out for yourself, you’ll fall off track, lose momentum, and be right back where you started.

“You are either moving towards or away from success at any given time. What direction are you headed in?” – Joel Brown

5. Build your habits

Here’s another secret – habits trump motivation. For those times when you are challenged and are forced to work hard and fail, what truly matters are the actions you take.

Unsuccessful people let their emotions dictate their thoughts, which determine their actions. Successful people decide on their actions, which dictate their thoughts, which determine their feelings.

Get up early in the morning, even if you don’t feel like it. Exercise and fuel your body right, even if you don’t feel like it. Put in extra work, even if you don’t feel like it. Taking the right actions, whether or not you feel like it, will become a habit. And success will come.

 

6. Review your progress

Everyone knows that things don’t always go according to plan. So readjust as necessary. Continually review yourself and your goals so that even if you aren’t on the original path you planned, you’ll still be headed in the direction that you want to go.

See how your plans are going every week and every month. Ask yourself, what went well and what didn’t? When were you at your best? Is what I’m doing truly getting me closer to my monthly goal, and ultimately my vision?

When you analyze what didn’t go well, you prevent it from happening again. When you analyze what did go well, celebrate it. If something went well, that means you created success! Review constantly as you go along, and you’ll minimize losses and maximize wins.

Live your dreams

Imagine this, 2016 is about to end, Christmas just finished, and everyone’s getting ready for new year’s celebrations.

You open your computer, and happen to see the vision you wrote at the start of 2016. You consume every single word you wrote down…then shed a tear.

You’re living the incredible vision you wrote down twelve months ago, and are living the life of your dreams! Despite the hard work, challenges, and failure you came across, you persevered and achieved victory most people wish they had the courage to try for.

5 Indicators of Unresolved Attachment Trauma

Published

on

Emotional Attachment Trauma

Trauma caused during specific stages of a child’s development, known as attachment trauma, can have lasting effects on a person’s sense of safety, security, predictability, and trust. This type of trauma is often the result of abuse, neglect, or inconsistent care from a primary caregiver.

Individuals who have not fully processed attachment trauma may display similar patterns of behavior and physical or psychological symptoms that negatively impact their adult lives, including the choices they make in relationships and business.

Unfortunately, many people may not even be aware that they are struggling with trauma. Research estimates that 6% of the population will experience PTSD in their lifetime, with a majority of males and females having experienced significant trauma.

Unresolved attachment trauma can significantly impair the overall quality of a person’s life, including their ability to form healthy relationships and make positive choices for themselves. One well-known effect of unhealed attachment trauma is the compulsion to repeat past wounds by unconsciously selecting romantic partners who trigger their developmental trauma.

However, there are other less recognized but equally detrimental signs of unprocessed developmental trauma.

 

Five possible indications of unresolved attachment trauma are:

 

1.  Unconscious Sabotage

Self-sabotage is a common pattern among individuals with unprocessed attachment trauma. This cycle often begins with hurting others, which is then followed by hurting oneself. It is also common for those with attachment trauma to have heightened emotional sensitivity, which can trigger this cycle.

This pattern can manifest in lashing out, shutting down, or impulsive behavior that leads to feelings of guilt, shame, and self-loathing.

Many people with attachment trauma are not aware of their wounds and operate on survival mode, unconsciously testing or challenging the emotional investment of those around them, and pushing them away out of self-preservation and fear of abandonment.

This can lead to a pattern of making poor choices for themselves based on impulsivity.

 

2. Persistent Pain

 
Chronic pain is a common symptom that can stem from early trauma. Studies have shown a connection between physical conditions such as fibromyalgia, headaches, gastrointestinal issues, insomnia, muscle aches, back pain, chest pain, and chronic fatigue with the aftermath of chronic developmental trauma, particularly physical abuse.
 
Research has found that individuals with insecure attachment styles, such as anxious, avoidant, or disorganized, have a higher incidence of somatic symptoms and a history of physical and emotional abuse in childhood compared to those with a secure attachment style.
 
 

3. Behaviors That Block Out Trauma

 
Trauma blocking practises are used to avoid the pain and memories connected with traumatic events.
 
Emotional numbing, avoidance, and escape via briefly pleasurable activities that distract from terrible memories or suffering are common examples. Unfortunately, this escape habit stops people from successfully processing and recovering from their trauma.
 
Furthermore, when the pain resurfaces, more and more diversions are necessary to continue ignoring it. This can be seen in compulsive behaviours such as drug or alcohol addiction, emotional eating, numbing oneself through relationships, workaholism, excessive or dangerous exercise routines, compulsive internet or technology use, or any other compulsive behaviour used to distract yoursef from intrusive thoughts and emotions.
 
These actions have the potential to prolong a cycle of avoidance and repression, preventing persons from healing and progressing.
 

4. A strong need for control

 
It’s understandable that some people may struggle with control issues in their adult lives, especially if they felt helpless or vulnerable during their childhood.
 
This can happen if someone had an overbearing caregiver who didn’t let them make their own choices, expected too much from them, or didn’t take care of them properly. As adults, they might try to control everything in their life to feel more in control and less anxious or scared. This might be because they didn’t feel like they had control over their life when they were a child.
 
It’s important to remember that everyone’s experiences are different and it’s okay to seek help if you’re struggling with control issues.
 
 

5. Psychological Symptoms That Are Not Explained

 
Individuals with a history of developmental trauma may experience a range of psychological symptoms, including obsessive-compulsive behavior, intense mood swings, irritability, anger, depression, emotional numbing, or severe anxiety.
 
These symptoms can vary in intensity and may occur intermittently throughout the day. People with this type of trauma may attempt to “distract” themselves from these symptoms by denying or rationalizing them, or may resort to substance abuse or behavioral addictions as coping mechanisms. This can be a maladaptive way of trying to numb their symptoms.
 
 

What to do next if you’re suffering from emotional attachment trauma?

 
Everyone’s experience of healing from trauma is unique. It’s important to be aware of whether you have experienced childhood developmental trauma and how it may be affecting your relationships as an adult. Sometimes, the effects of trauma can be overwhelming and we may try to push them away or avoid them.
 
If you notice that you’re engaging in these behaviors, it’s important to seek help from a trauma therapist who can support you on your healing journey. Remember, you’re not alone and it’s never too late to start healing.
 

There are several ways that people can work to overcome emotional attachment trauma:

  1. Therapy: One of the most effective ways to overcome emotional attachment trauma is through therapy. A therapist can help you process your experiences, understand the impact of your trauma on your life, and develop coping strategies to manage symptoms.
  2. Support groups: Joining a support group of people who have had similar experiences can be a great way to find validation, empathy, and a sense of community.
  3. Mindfulness practices: Mindfulness practices such as meditation, pilates, prayer time with God or journaling can help you become more aware of your thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations, and develop a sense of spiritual connection and self-regulation.
  4. Trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT): This is a type of therapy that is specifically designed to help individuals process and recover from traumatic events.
  5. Building a safety net: Building a support system of people you trust, who are there for you when you need them, can help you feel more secure and safe in your life.

It’s important to remember that healing from emotional attachment trauma is a process and it may take time. It’s also important to find a therapist who is experienced in treating trauma, who you feel comfortable talking with, and who can help you develop a personalized treatment plan.
