Every year at this time we tend to set New Year Resolutions,
most of which are dreams, or a vision of a Utopia that is not obtainable.
The difference between goal setting and dreaming and vision comes
from the simple act of writing it down. Only about 5% of people will set
(write down) their goals. Then even fewer take continued steps to
achieve their goals. Here are some basic steps from author and coach
Brian Tracy to remember as getting ready to make 2014 your best year
Goal setting - be SMART. Every morning take some time to review
your goals, re-write them in the presence tense as if it has happened
already. That way you begin to imbed them deep into your super
conscious. Visualize either just with your mind or use a vision board,
and get excited about the reality you are creating. It will open your mind
to the potential of the day, and you will begin to have the LUCK you
were waiting for. Really there is no such thing as luck, just your good
fortune masked in the form of your hard work.
Planning and Organizing - if you fail to plan you are planning to fail.
Plan your next move for the following day. Before bed utilize the aspect
of journaling to release any challenges that occurred that day as well
as set your super conscious mind in motion for what it will need to
work on threw out the night. Just ask the question and let the Universe
work it out. It is important to plan on paper, it helps with keeping the
goals in the front of your mind instead of hidden under the day.
Concentration on your High Value Activities - Do it Now, Do it Right,
Do it All! Do not let yourself get distracted by "tasks". Things that
could get done either by someone else or at a later time. What is the
one or two things that will bring the biggest bang for your buck!
Exercise and Proper Nutrition - Garbage in Garbage out! Your health
is more important than anything else. By disciplining yourself to
exercise regularly and to eat carefully, you will promote the highest
possible levels of health and fitness throughout your life. As well
when you FEEL physically strong you will be mentally strong.
Learning and Growth - Learners are Earners! Your mind is like a
muscle. If you don’t use it, you lose it. Continuous learning and
personal growth is the minimum requirement for success in any field.
Time for Important People in Your Life - Self, Family, Business. It all
begins with you...it is not selfish to take time for you to do something
that inspires you. Maybe that is coming to Quest to train, maybe sit and
meditate or read. Then remember that without your friends and family
any success you have will feel hollow. Be sure that in climbing the
ladder of success, you do not find it leaning against the wrong building.
Build time for your relationships into every day, no matter how busy
Finally it all comes down to Action! It is not what you know but what
you do with what you know! The best laid plans or of no use unless
you take the steps to make it happen. Watching the most motivational
videos, or read books does nothing if you don't do something with it.
