Goal Setting Tips To Achieve Set Goals

Jun 14, 2008
How do we increase the likelihood of achieving a goal? Are there any tips that can really make a difference? Yes there are, and in this article, I will give you some of the most important tips to getting a goal achieved and materialized in your life.

By far the most important point of setting and achieving a goal is setting a goal. This is different from New Year resolutions, this is actually thinking about a worthy ideal, and setting it on paper. Our lives seem so complicated, a friend says 'come round', and before we know it, that goal is forgotten like the many thousand of other thoughts that come to us in a day.

Right from your thought, to pen, and paper, your goal written is one which is set on paper. This is important, as if you don't write it down; you soon find bricks are placed in front of you. Over time, these bricks become so high, that finding a way to get to your goal seems so clouded it seems impossible.

Write your goal down on paper. It does not have to be as eloquent and sophisticated as Shakespeare's, but it does need to be understood by you. Do you know what you want exactly? And no - more money is not exact, more happiness is not exact. It is as loose as saying trillions of dollars move around in the world.

Yes, a goal needs to be formulated. I want is good; however, I have also acts as an affirmation, which is something you want. The whole of this view is that you are trying to communicate your desire to a part of the mind called the subconscious. This subconscious is infinite and powerful. If you get into that part of your mind - stop smoking, you will. If you put a million dollars into your subconscious, it will come as fast as an avalanche!

It maybe hard to understand at first, especially when you have not experienced the power of the subconscious mind. However, advertisers constantly try to find better ways to be able to subconsciously get you to buy. It is the only way to go and buy.

As a goal setter, I set goals with time based goals. So in 1 year I have an income of $1,000,000. However, my experience has proved to me that it often does not happen in 1 year, especially if you have never achieved such a goal, and this applies to all goals, whether financial or any other area of life.

Time based goals seldom are reached in time for the first run, because we have no data, no information about the process. Imagine going on a flight. You go on the flight and the pilot gives an estimated time to arrival or ETA. This time is pretty accurate, but it is only accurate because the pilot has flown that route many times.

Now imagine Columbus. He says he is going around the world, and may have set a goal. But did Columbus get there in the time frame he set? I don't know how long it took him, and how long his estimate was, however, you can be sure that he did not get there in precise time.

If you take one thing from this article, it is to put time aside. Yes, time is important. An ice-cream in the Sun won't last all day, however, if you put time in its proper perspective - a kind of perspective of 'I know it is taking this long, but I will get there in the end', you will undoubtedly reach your goal. And that is a promise and guarantee.
