Goal setting is an exciting way to move forward and get what you want. It revolves around your personal development and you’ll be amazed to discover some of the simple things that are holding you back.
You see, no matter what you are into; running a business and making money, finding that special relationship or achieving in sport, it’s your own personal development that stops you dead in your tracks. There are simple things you can do that allow you to move ahead like a formula one racer.
The most basic of personal development issues revolve around what you think. Goal setting in order to achieve, is a simple concept that you are probably already aware of. If you’re not I will recap the basics in this article. You see without goal setting you are an under achiever. That doesn’t mean you won’t achieve. It means you under achieve relative to what you could do. If your business is making you x dollars per year then you could double, triple and do even more with some very simple techniques.
Here is the problem. Goal setting and the related techniques certainly work. What they don’t tell you are the conditions you need in order to make goal setting work for YOU.
Lets go over some of the basics. Your mind is designed to be a very efficient instrument. Like a heat seeking missile you get exactly what you have envisioned. This happens whether you like it or not. You think in pictures and you get whatever your dominant picture is.
If you want to know what that dominant picture is then just look around you at YOUR current world. What you have now is a product of your unconscious goal setting. You just can’t avoid it. If you are completely satisfied and have everything you want then move on to another page, this is not for you.
Goal setting involves writing down what you want, making affirmations and then repeating them in order to achieve your goal. You can find out everything about goal setting, including techniques that are not widely known, in the ‘Key To Life’ manual.
Here’s the secret. You have 50 thousand thoughts per day. That’s two thoughts every second. You don’t even know what they are! Many of these thoughts take you away from your goal.
This is what you do. You make a goal, complete with affirmation and say something like “I am wealthy, I have 10 million dollars.” You say this 20 times in the morning and twenty times in the evening. That’s 40 thoughts towards your goal.
Then as you walk to your car you have a series of thoughts that imply you need a better car and you will buy one next year when you have more money. You stop at the bottle shop on the way home for a bottle of wine and instead of looking for what you want, you go to where the ten and fifteen dollar bottles are because that’s what you can afford. You then get home and the gas bill greets you with a two hundred and forty dollar smile. You don’t see the seven thoughts that say, “that’s a lot of money for the gas bill”.
These thoughts are not the thoughts of a wealthy person. Most importantly you miss the thoughts that actually say, “I am not wealthy” and “I earn thirty five thousand dollars per year” these thoughts often occur right after you say your affirmations. So by the end of the day you have forty thoughts towards your goal and seven thousand five hundred and thirty two away from your goal.
Please don’t misunderstand and think that I am suggesting you buy the expensive bottle of wine and that you upgrade to your favourite colour Ferrari this week. You need to change the way you think.
Thoughts are energy and what you give energy towards becomes your reality. You wonder why you don’t get anywhere. WRONG! You do get somewhere, you are a very efficient goal setting machine. You get what you are picturing. You just don’t see what you are creating.
The solution is to master your mind and watch what you are thinking on a continual basis. The trick is to be able to do this and still carry on with your life.
Until you are able to master your mind, you will continue with this cycle of achieving unconsciously – what you don’t want.
The solution is relatively easy and I have documented the steps in my ‘Key To Life’ manual. Who am I? I am a business and lifestyle coach and I work with people everyday to create solutions to problems. When it comes to business I work with beginners through to multi million dollar corporations. I have written this manual for those of you who either can’t access my services or the cost of having a coach is prohibitive.
Either way the solution is just one click away. You can do and achieve anything you want. I know this myself from experience. Now you do it!
