How Important Is Growth To You?
Let’s explore how you get from where you are now, to where you want to be in the future. Because we’ve all got this gap, we all want to understand and know the reasoning’s behind and how to’s in order to close that gap. The gap from where we are now to where we want to be in the future. Let’s explore the two things that are standing in your way to get to where you want to be and realise your ultimate dream, your ultimate vision, your end in mind, and create that beautiful life yourself. Let’s go ahead and explore those two things.
Okay, so we’ve all got this place where we are now and this place where we want to get to be in the future, and in between we call that our gap. This is actually where all the growth is, this is where all the magic happens, to get from where we are now to where we want to be in the future. For you to successfully close your gap, I urge you to watch this video below.

Being Happy In The Now
But before we move forward, I need to discuss one important thing, something that’s even more so important than that ‘end in mind’, that ultimate vision, that ultimate goal that we want to get too. And that’s being happy, content and satisfied in the now, in what we have in this moment. And not expecting the now to be any different than what it currently is. Because if we’re expecting the now to be any different than what it currently is, comparing our now to what we maybe want to be in the future. All we’re doing is putting ourselves in that sort of comparison of the now to the future. And we’re just going to lead ourselves into a downward spiral. And this is where we get our bad days and negative thought patterns happen and those negative thought patterns end up turning into negative behaviours, actions, and decisions. And eventually a negative outlook and situation on your current life.
Letting go of how we think the now should be
It’s important to be happy, content and satisfied in the now and not expecting the now to be any different than what it currently is. Okay, so moving on. There’s two things that are going to determine whether we can move from this place where we are now to where we want to be in the future, and go through that gap, and ensure that we get to this place here and realise this ultimate dream, this ultimate goal, ultimate vision, and create that beautiful life for ourselves.
Two things; Subconscious and Fears
One, is the subconscious mind and two, is our fears. Usually in regards to our fears to something standing in our way and deep down we know that there’s something there that we need to face, and we need to overcome. If it wasn’t there, if it was removed, than we would be able to get to this place much, much easier.
The other thing is that our subconscious mind. Now, our subconscious mind is really dictating everything in our life. It’s dictating 90% of our decisions, our behaviours, the actions that we take, our outlook on the world, our perceptions on things, how we handle challenges, how we approached challenges.
It determines our personal values and our outlook on the world. Now, that is created through the situations that we’ve been through from when we were born, up until this present moment. The environments we have been in, the situations we faced. But most of all our perceptions on all those things and how we’ve managed it and whether things are good or bad. But our subconscious and neural network, that map, that blueprint that makes up our subconscious mind is what’s going to determine whether we get from where we are now to where we want to be in the future.
Once that’s wired and mapped out correctly, you can make that transition into where you are now to where you want to be in the future. With that blueprint because that’s actually controlling everything in our life. Our actions, decision making, our outlook, our perceptions on the world. That’s what’s going to determine whether we get there. So if that’s controlling 90% of our life, then that’s what we need to change in order to get to where we want to be.
So the same inputs, that’s wired that subconscious mind, that’s created that neural network, the same inputs, environment, situations we’ve been through, our stress, our challenges and our perception on all those sorts of things. They’re the same inputs that we need to start to change in order to change that neural network and set our subconscious mind in order to get to where we want to be.
Your Subconscious Is Controlling You 24/7
So a simple demonstration here. What I always like to think of is, what am I filling my mind with 24/7, 365 and are those things that I’m focusing on, the time and energy and focus that I’m placing in different areas and on different things, is that really what’s going to get me closer to where I want to be or not?
And I always try and maximise what I’m doing, what I’m learning, who I’m speaking to. The way I perceive different challenges, and circumstances, and situations throughout my life, is that getting me closer to where I want to be? Am I growing and am I closing that gap from where I am here to where I want to be in the future? So it’s all about those inputs. And if we can optimise and maximise those inputs to create the neural network that creates the subconscious mind that’s dictating 90% of what we do and our chances and probability of getting to this end in mind anyway… Then this is what we need to be be doing.
So here I have, on this side, this is just clean water, right? And clean water, what this is representing is all the stuff we know that we should be doing, right? Eating clean nutritious food, living a healthy lifestyle, living an active lifestyle, having a positive attitude, filling our mind with positive thoughts. Being around positive people, being around people that are helping us grow, like limiting that negativity and that sort of thing. Being around growth, self development, right? Consuming articles, consuming things that are going to propel you forward, and you’re already deep down know what this sort of is, what this bottle should be full of. You already know that, I’m sure. It’s full of clean things, it’s full of a clean lifestyle. Being a good person, giving. Being a good person, being a good example within your community, within your family, around your friends. Being that example, being the inspiration for others.
You know that this is what your life, this is what you should be filling your subconscious mind with. Now, this here, it’s brown, it looks toxic, it looks dirty. Now, this is all the negative crap. This is all the negative stuff that you know you should be giving up, and you should stop doing and deep down you also know that stuff as well. No one really needs to identify it for you, you already now deep down that you should stop it. This is the stuff that you go, “I’ll leave it till Monday to do. I’ll leave it till next week to do.” Rather than wait until next week, you need to change this now because this is what you’re filling your subconscious mind with. All the negative crap, the random numbness like scrolling through social media and causing yourself to compare yourself with the lives of other people. Worrying about other people’s opinions and having these people, that you don’t even know dictate whether you’re going to go and do something or not, right?
Procrastination, not doing the positive things, not living a clean lifestyle. All the things that you know is holding yourself back, this is it here, right? Now you think if this here, this here is representing your subconscious mind, that dictates 90% of what you do, your perceptions, your outlook on the world. And this is going to determine whether you’re going to get to your end in mind or not realise that beautiful life, that ultimate goal, that ultimate dream.. Now we’ve got a simple decision to make, and these are daily decisions that happen throughout the day. Now, we can decide what we’re going to pour into our subconscious mind. Are we going to pour the stuff we know we should be pouring in, or are we going to pour the crappy still tomorrow, the day after, the week after, the month after, six months later, one year later, one decade later, two decades later. Like when is it going to stop?
When are we going to stop pouring this crap into our subconscious mind? Because this is what’s going to determine whether you’ve got this life or not. So stop worrying about like, I haven’t got there yet, or whatever. If you know that you’re still pouring this in your subconscious mind, 24/7, 365 then of course you are going to build up guilt and shame because you haven’t achieved this. Of course, you’re going to be letting yourself down. Of course, you’re going to be hating where you are right now because you know you should be here and deep down you know you’re not because this is what you’ve been putting into here, into your subconscious mind. So let’s stop it. It’s just a decision, we choose this or this. What are we going to put into here? Choose this one. Choose the things that are going to help you grow. Choose self development, choose personal growth. Choose to have the people around you that are going to help you grow, that are going to help you close that gap from where you are now to where you want to be in the future. These are huge success factors that play a part in you creating that beautiful life.
Choose To Live A Clean Lifestyle
Choose clean living. Choose a clean lifestyle. Choose healthy meals. Choose good clean water. Choose an active lifestyle. Choose to identify your personal values and identify what’s actually like, what you’re passionate about, where you want to go. Because until you start to pour this clean life into your subconscious mind, until you start to be this, you won’t have this. You need to be this first, and you need to pull that into your subconscious mind and eventually that subconscious mind will start to create the decisions, the actions, the behaviours, and the attitude that will end up allowing you to realise this end in mind, this ultimate goal. Just make the decision. Is it going to be this one or this one? You know you don’t want to not realise this ultimate goal, this ultimate lifestyle. We know you want to realise it. You know you’re worthy of it. You know you’re worthy of receiving, you know you deserve more. You deserve better. So if your life up until this point has been pouring this into your subconscious mind, stop it. Change.
Change is inevitable
Change is inevitable anyway. So make the change now. Be comfortable with the change. Most importantly, be happy and content with the now and understand this is exactly where you should be. Pull this one in. The positive lifestyle, the clean lifestyle, the active lifestyle, the healthy meals, the meditation, the relaxation, the uncomfortable, the facing your fears, stepping into the uncomfortable, seeking more growth. Seeking personal growth so you can get to that end in mind, that ultimate goal, because that gap from where you are now to where you want to be in the future, this gap here, this is exactly where all the growth is. This is what you should be seeking. This is what’s going to allow you to get here. You can’t bypass it. Same like your fears. You know there’s some fears there that are holding you back, preventing you from getting you to where you want to be. It’s about identifying those and building the courage in order to step into.
And one of the simplest ways to do that is identifying your top three fears. Number one being most scariest, and number three being the least scariest. And number three will still be bloody scary. That’s still going to take a lot of courage to step into, but it’s much easier to step into a smaller fear first and then you can move on to number two, and then number one. And that’s a very, very simple process because these are the two things that’s going to be standing in your way, your subconscious mind and your fears. And we’ve all got them. The message is today is being happy in the now and not expecting the now to be any different than what it currently is. Being content, having accountability and responsibility of where you are in this moment and know that this is where you need to be, because this is what’s going to create that beautiful life and start to propel you forward.
Your subconscious mind is dictating everything in your life anyway, so this is what needs to be rewired. And it gets rewired through the different inputs that created your current subconscious mind. Mindset is key here, so start to do put the right things in to rewire it. The third message is your fears. You know, there’s something there that’s holding you back, and I ask you this question is,
If that fear wasn’t there, if that fear wasn’t standing in your way, what’s the probability of you reaching your end in mind, that ultimate goal, that ultimate vision?
It would be a very, very high probability and I know you can agree with me. So move forward, pour the right stuff in, make the change now, not later, because you are worthy of receiving.
