Most people would agree that individual beliefs and values influence
and determine the outcome of any situation or experience in our
lives. That’s why a group of people can go through similar
experiences and yet individually come away with totally different
Question: “When do most people think about setting
It’s usually done as a new year’s resolution at a party over a drink
or two or on some other whim. When done in such a manner the goals
set tend to be unrealistic and unattainable? No real thought or
planning has gone into it, and in reality, you’re just setting
yourself up for disappointment and failure. When this happens of
course you say to yourself. “See I knew that goals don’t work!!”
The truth of the matter is that there is a specific formula needed
to create great goals that work. Only 20% of the reasons why you’re
your goals are on the outside. That means 80% of the
reasons why you’re not reaching your goals is on the inside. If you
are seriously looking for change in whatever area in life you are
unhappy about always start with yourself.
Einstein said “We are all boxed in by the boundary conditions of our
Our values and beliefs are created subconsciously through the
conditionings we received in our early informative years through our
education, religion, schooling and work etc. When we reach
our teens and into adulthood, we conveniently begin to pigeon hole
meanings and reasons to life’s experiences. Subconsciously we create
own internal rule book on how we believe we should be and on how we
perceive things. Through habitual limiting beliefs and thought
processes we set an invisible wall that limits what we allow
ourselves to experience and feel. This then becomes our perceived
reality of the world.
change your internal representation of your individual world, we
must begin to challenge and review:
Beliefs from the parameters of what you will and will not allow in
your life. They make up the boundary conditions of your thinking.
Limiting beliefs narrow and restrict your possible experiences;
however, transformed beliefs can expand your individual potential
and expand what you allow yourself to experience.
Values represent what is important to you, ideas that guide your
life and represent what you stand for, like family, happiness,
stability, love, money, recognition etc. Individual experiences will
vary based on your range of values. Someone who values wealth will
invest time and effort in that area, and there life will reflect
that. If that same person does not value honesty, then the route to
wealth will be very different from someone who values honesty.
There have been three major turning points in my life:
The first was when I discovered that if I wanted anything to
change it was up to me. This world doesn’t owe me any favors or
free hand outs. I am responsible for my life, and for everything
that’s happened to me. At some level, we have chosen everything
that happens in our experience, whether consciously or
unconsciously, for a grander purpose. Don't ask, "Why did I
create this?' Instead, ask yourself, "How did I create this
reality and what do I want to create instead?" Responsibility
means “If it’s to be it’s up to me”. After you accept complete
responsibility, your whole life begins to change.
The second turning point for me came when I realized that you
can learn how to be successful. If you put your mind to it,
there is nothing that you can’t accomplish. No one is any better
or smarter than you. All Life and business skills, sales skills
and money making skills are learnable.
The third turning point was discovering the art of correctly
setting goals. When done correctly your goals become the
signposts along your path, which motivates and keeps you on
track towards your desired results?
The Goal Setting Formula To Success
The first thing is to decide exactly what key area of your life you
would like to work on. Start off with your end result in mind.
Imagine that there are no limitations on what you can be, have or
do. Imagine that you have all the time and money, all the friends
and contacts, all the education and experience that you need to
accomplish any goal you can set for yourself.
Just like a Harry Potter, Imagine that you could wave your magic
wand and make your life perfect in areas of life of your choice.
What would it look like?
For a goal to truly motivate people it must inspire create the
energy and confidence and determination so that the goal may be
reached. For this to happen effortlessly and easily write your goal
in present-tense language as if it is happening right now. Success
is not around the corner - it's right now. Using the following
technique allows you to put goals in your future in such a way that
they actually occur.
When Creating Your
Goals They Must Be:
Specific: For your goal to have the energy to reach
its objective it must be detailed and state its outcome. It’s no
good saying “I want to be rich” This is very ambiguous. How much
richer would you want to be? If you make 1 cent more you would be
richer. Be specific. Example: “I want to earn $10,000 passive income
per month from my online internet affiliate programs”.
Measurable: When we set goals it’s important to start
with the end in mind. This prevents procrastination and gives a
positive direction to shoot for. When setting goals be aware that
you will be breaking this goal down turning it into milestones.
Start with the end in mind.
Evidential: There should be some practical evidence
that you decide upon when setting your goal that makes it real and
compelling for you. Be sure that you have a clearly defined the way
you want your goal to be. For example, it is obvious when you have
reached your goal when you have in your next month’s bank account
Rs.10,000 from your online internet affiliate programs. This is a
better goal than just I want to be rich. Focusing on the evidence
will help you to be on target and will improve the effectiveness of
achieving your goal.
Responsible: When we set goals it must be understood
that for this goal to work you must take control of your actions and
be responsible for the success of this goals objective. You must
fully accept the consequences of your own decisions and actions.
Responsibility means “If it’s to be it’s up to me.
Timed: In your subconscious mind the past and the
future don't exist; there is only the "now". Your future is pre
destined, to a degree on what you are doing, thinking and believing
right now. This means that the future can be molded and shaped any
way you want it to be. By creating future date goals you are taking
charge of your future. At first aim to make the goal roughly 6
Inspirational: We as human beings do things either to
avoid pain, to gain pleasure or because we are inspired to do
something. When we live our lives in accordance with our own inner
values and follow our true heart’s desire we discover our higher
self. We instinctively awaken a dormant energy that guides our life
and so we begin our sacred quest to find our true purpose. When we
are inspired we manifest great things into our life to support
nurture and challenge us. Challenges help us to grow and are
necessary for great things to happen.
Emotional: Human beings are emotional beings
everything we do is driven by our emotions. We are driven to gain
pleasure and to avoid pain. It's an instinctive ancestral survival
skill from years of ago, when we needed to have those instincts to
avoiding becoming dinner for that wiled bear! So the more emotional
gain that is associated with your goal the more you will feel
compelled to go for it.
Goal: Health (example)
It is the 25th of August 2009, and I feel amazing as I
am now a healthy size 10. I love and feed my body a healthy balanced
diet of daily salads and juices. I walk regularly around Regents
Park three times a week and attend yoga four times per week. I feel
my life is in balance, and I now have more energy and vitality to
develop and build my personal training practice.
Once you have designed your goal it is important that you put it
into action. Take a few moments to create the emotions that would
accompany the successful achievement of your goal. In your mind eye
create a mental picture combined with all the emotions that will
have an enormous impact on your subconscious mind.
Visualization is perhaps the most powerful tool available to you to
help you achieve your goals faster than you ever thought possible.
When you combine this clear goal setting method, with emotionally
charged visualization, you activate your subconscious mind. Your
subconscious mind then solves every problem on the way to your goal.
Your subconscious mind activates the Law of Attraction and begins
attracting into your life people, circumstances, ideas and resources
that will help you to achieve your goals even faster.
Read your goal and do this visualization every morning and evening
before you go to bed?
