Your Goals Plus Your Power Equal Your Results

Part Three in a three part series … A Winning Goal-Setting Formula

The Power of the MInd

Part Three:

~~~~~~Your Goals  +

~~~~~~~~~Your Power  =’s

~~~~~~~~~~~~Your Results

 


 

In part One & Two we set the tone and foundation.  You have everything you need to set effective goals and achieve them.  Here in part three I am going to introduce you to some broader, higher thinking concepts that will support this winning goal-setting formula as well as open up a whole new world for your exploration.

Your Goals Plus Your Power Equal Your Results

~ Your Goals

Your goals are very important. Without goals you have little control over the direction of your life.  A goal and your intention coupled with the right actions is always a winning formula for success.  On the flip side, if you are not setting goals, who is responsible for your results?… Ultimately you are so take control.

Your goal is first a thought and once written it becomes a thing.  Things have energy.
The Universe we live in is governed by laws. The primary law being that everything is energy. Energy can not be destroyed, it can however take on different forms. You, I and everything else is made up of energy. Our bodies are able to maintain their cohesion or shape because of their particular state of vibration. Within this subsidiary law… The law of vibration is yet another subsidiary law called the law of attraction. Which states that That which is like attracts like.

~ Exercising your power

Your ability to choose, set a goal and then act upon that goal is completely under your control… This is your power!  This is also your responsibility.

Motivation Tip:  Taking responsibility for (knowing that you are responsible for) all of your results, past or present offers an incentive to do a better job moving forward.  It also frees you up from outside influences.

 

“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don’t believe in circumstances. The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.” ~ George Bernard Shaw

You are far more powerful than you know. The fight and flight mechanism that we share with animals is still in place, however we have learned new truths and behaviors. We have the ability to further develop our mind and to better use it’s higher faculties, like our imagination, will power and persistence to achieve our goals.

You have the ability to imagine and visualize anything in your mind and experience it as if it were real. The brain can’t tell the difference from what is real and what is imagined. By leveraging your will power and your imagination you are giving your goal (which is a real thing) all of the energy and pulling power it needs to attract and then manifest its physical equivalent.

You are leveraging the law of attraction and impressing upon your subconscious mind a new image. Because your subconscious can not discern from what is real or imagined, it accepts it as fact and will therefore act upon it as if it were real. This will cause a new behavior within you which will ultimately produce a different result. In the interim, the law of attraction will bring to you more things, people, circumstances that support your goal.

~ Your Results

If you continue to think the same thoughts, you will continue to act in a similar way and you will produce similar results.  Your results are a product of your programing or paradigm.  The process by which you may reprogram your subconscious mind is through repetition.  Goal-setting is the starting point for producing a new result.  The higher faculties of the mind must be leveraged and the practice of repetition applied over an undetermined period of time to impress this new idea upon the subconscious mind before it can take hold.  The law of cause and effect is also working to bring your goal to you in the most powerful and amazing ways.  This is once again why I say our work is not to be concerned with the how our goal is coming but, rather the persistent practices of visualization and affirmation.

 

“The mind is motion, the body is an expression of that motion.” ~ Bob Proctor

~ New Beginnings and New Opportunities Await You

Be easy about this process and your life. There is no cause for stress or worry that you can’t get it done.  You were born to excel at this process and all of the laws of the Universe were purposely designed to support you in this process.  the only way to fail is to quit.  The choice is yours and so are the results.  Don’t allow anyone to influence your dreams, goals or reality unless you want them to.

Some Key Points…

Attitude is everything… Practice the attitude of gratitude.

Attitude is the culmination of you thoughts, feelings and actions.

The goal-setting process: Think it, feel it, do it!

The lucky ones are not the ones born with money or an advantage… They are the one’s who stick to their goals plan and actually do the work.  They are the people who are still focusing on their goals long after everyone else has quit trying.  Be courageous, bet the leading edge creator you came here to be!

The Catalysts For Goal Setting Achievement

Part Two in a Three part series… A Winning Goal-Setting Formula

Gratitude_02

Part Two:

The Catalysts For Goal Setting Achievement

~ Imagination, Visualization and the Emotion of Gratitude

 

 

 


 

In part one we set the foundation. We discovered that A GOAL is a written document describing a desired outcome, stated in the present tense. We now know that a goals true purpose is to make us grow. When we talk about growth we are referring to personal growth, awareness, and empowerment. Now It’s time to put that goal into action.

~ It’s All In Your Head

Your imagination is a gift. It is the playground of the mind. It represents one of the highest capabilities of the human mind. Without the use of our imaginations and the power of thought, we could all still be living under a rock.

Use your imagination to your advantage. When you hold your goal before you, imagine that it is already yours! Visualize yourself already in possession of it. Imagine and feel the joy of having it now. Everything begins with a thought. Before you can hold it in your hand, you must first be able to see it in your mind.

If this idea sounds ridiculous to you as you are reading it… Then you are not using your imagination. You have likely bought into someone else’s idea of how thing “really work” and you are now bound by their limiting beliefs. Remember that it’s your imagination and what you do with it is your business and ultimately your reality. Give yourself permission to dream, imagine and explore just as you did when you were a kid!  Imagination and thought really is the beginning point of all achievement.

 

“Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” ~ Napoleon Hill

~ The Power Of Visualization

I want you to literally see yourself as already having achieved your goal. This is an art form and may take some serious effort at first. Once you have established your goal as we did in part one… Your work now is to come into alignment with it.  One very powerful to doing that is visualization.  Here is a fun and easy exercise you can do is to create a “Vision Board.” A vision board is a collage of different images representing your goal or goals. For example if one of your goals is to travel, you could include pictures of all the destinations you want to visit.

 

Look up Vision Board

~ Create your very own vision board today!

Gather some old magazines with photos representing your goals or you can  create your own images or download them from the internet.  Be sure to include a picture of yourself. You may want to include an image of yourself doing your goal activity or something that you enjoy. Get together with your friends or gather the family around the dinning room table to create memory along with your vision board.

 

 

 


 

~ We Are Emotional Beings

We are more accurately spiritual beings with an emotional guidance system.  Our emotions are an indicator of what we are thinking in relation to our desires. Being grateful is very high on the emotional scale and the practice of being grateful is the main catalyst that will move you closer to your goal and your goal closer to you! No other attitude than that of gratitude will ever do as much for you. Even the optimist or the positive thinker is bound to loose faith and quit in tough times. When you focus on good feeling thoughts, only good things can come to you.  Adopt an attitude of gratitude… Your life will never be the same.

 

“Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” ~ Eckhart Tolle

~ Exercising Your Power

Putting it all together…
When you are able to leverage your imagination and visualize your goal with an attitude of gratitude, you are in action… You are now creating a more compelling future. As you begin to move more into alignment with your goal in this manner, you will begin to draw upon two of the most powerful laws of the Universe… The law of attraction and the law of cause and effect into your favor.

It is for this very reason that your goal is written in the present tense. If your goal where stated as a future possibility, it would forever remain in the future. Having it now emotionally, holding it now, even if only in your imagination is what gives your goal it’s pulling power.

This may mean the forming of a new habit for you. I read somewhere that it takes up to 66 days to form a new habit. If you consider that we have spent a lifetime forming the ones we have now, then that is good news. A habit is simply something that you do on a consistent or repetitive basis.

Remember; You need not concern yourself with how it is going to happen. For now we are going to leave that to what I like to call “the manager.”

~ Two daily habits that will bring your goals from being a fantasy to being real…

Form the habit of gratitude: Look for things in your environment to be grateful for.
Review your goals regularly: View, visualize and speak your goals daily.

 

Gratitude_01

 

Read your goals out loud or to yourself.,  Use your vision board as an aide.,  Feel gratitude as you imagine your goals already in your possession.

A Winning Goal-Setting Formula

Part One in a Three part series… A Winning Goal Setting Formula

…The first in a 3 part series

 

Part One:

Goal Setting Basics… Setting The Foundation

 

 


 

 

~ What Is A Goal?

A goal is something you aim for, something you strive for. In basketball the goal is the basket. An archer’s goal is to hit the bulls-eye at 40 or 100 meters. The mountain climbers objective may be to reach the top of the mountain.

In business and in life, a goal could be many different things. You can set goals in practically every area of your life. You can set career goals, business goals or fitness goals. Your only limitation is your own imagination and that my friend has no limits.

A GOAL is a written document describing a desired outcome, stated in the present tense. Example: “I am so happy and grateful now that this blog post is finished and no adding value.”

A very important distinction about goal-setting is that a goal is not an actual goal until it is committed to writing.

~ What A Goal Is Not

A goal, outside of the context of sports is not always a concrete thing… It could also be an experience. Don’t think of a goal a result, rather you could think of it as something venture and something gained.  A goal outside of sports is not a race against anyone or anything, nor is it a finish line… A goal is more like a choice in direction, a decision as to which stepping stone you will stand on next as you move through your life.

~ Why Are Goals So Important & What Is Their Purpose?

Many believe that the purpose for setting a goal is to get something but, that is only a result… The true purpose of a goal is to make you grow. The real value in setting a worthwhile goal is all about the person you must become to achieve that goal. If you need to develop a new skill, increase your feelings of self-worth or learn to trust another person to achieve a particular goal, then that is a part of the goals purpose and a huge benefit to you. You have grown as a person.  Having moved through the goal you are now more capable of achievement than when you began.  You are now more aware of your power to create and achieve even grater things.

Goal-setting is an essential part of your personal growth and development. … Which is in fact the true essence of a goals power and purpose!  You have the power to choose as to what you will Be, Do, and Have.  No one else can make that choice for you.

~ Okay, Now What?

There are many different ways to structure a goal and there are many different types of goals. For example there are “smart goals”, long term goals, short term goals, health goals, career goals, etc., etc.  Many will tell you that every goal requires certain elements like a due date for example.

In this simple format there are only two main criteria we need be concerned with when creating our goal… The Time-Line and the Specifics.  The following exercise takes care of the time-line.  The specifics are where you and your imagination come in to play.  The more specific the better.  The more time you spend here, the sooner your goal will be realized.  In other words, do the work now or do the work in some distant future after having produced poor results… Do the work now.

Fun & Easy Goal-Setting Exercise:

  1. Write out a list of things that you want to have and experience in your life. Work on it some more…                 Don’t hold back even thought you have no idea how they could happen.
  2. Select a single goal from your list.
  3. Write this goal out in the present tense to create your first goal from this exercise.

(Example: I am so happy and grateful now that …. (fill in the blank)

… my company’s sales keep going up. … I am a published author … I have found my ideal partner … my wounds are healed… I am earning $100,000.00 each year.  There is no right or wrong way to establish your goal on paper, as long as it is positive, the more specific the better and stated in the present.

Tip: The part about HOW your goal is going to happen is not your work. Your work begins in the next step…

“Congratulations… Now you have your goal before you!”

 

The Next Step… Part Two: The Catalysts For Goal Setting Achievement

When you are ready to experience the next level thinking in the goal-setting process… Part two is where you will learn the actual processes of turning your goal into a reality and in Part three learn why you are built to set goals.
