How many times have you smashed up against a road block when you were after a goal, and wondered if you would EVER get there? There really are only two types of goal seekers — those who “get it” and achieve their goals, and those who spend their lives wondering WHY they keep smashing up against those road blocks.
Here are nine ABSOLUTELY PROVEN keys to immediately “get it,” achieve your goals and finally make some fast and lasting progress:
That amazing 3-pound brain of yours is the ultimate goal-seeking machine! You have trained it from childhood to respond what you want. Vague wishes about “being more successful” will NOT get you anywhere. Get definite and precise. Decide once and for all EXACTLY what you want! Otherwise you are just wasting your time and energy!
Set your sights on ONE major goal. Too many goals will trip you up, unless they fall in line toward one ultimate goal, and you take them one at a time! Learn to focus!
Any truly meaningful goal takes REAL EFFORT! It will not just happen and fall in your lap. Dreams are a good thing – but success comes when you wake up and go to work!
If you have created a plan of action and it is NOT working, sit down and take a good look at what you’re doing. Do NOT hang in with a strategy that is obviously not working. Find another approach — PERIOD!!!!
Sometimes the best approach is to ask (or at least observe) other people who have already achieved what you are trying to achieve. But do remember to turn to truly qualified resources — not just any Tom, Dick or Mary. And if you are TRULY motivated — considering getting a mentor!
If your mind is filled with worry and frustration – your mental focus will just create more of the same. Positive results require positive expectations. Just hold an image that you WILL get where you want to go. Then hitting a bump in the road will just toughen up your resolve.
Passion is a great power for success. If you have true passion for your goal, you WILL achieve it. It you do not have a burning passion for your goal, ask yourself if it really represents your true desires.
Seek out and embrace personal change. Shake off your past and get present in the here and now. The present moment is your ONLY true personal point of power. Stop bringing past limitations into the present!
One of the most powerful (and often overlooked) tools for achieving success and building your belief in a goal is VISUALIZATION. There is a very real reason it is recommended by so many super-successful people – because it works, and works well!
Put the power of visualization to work in your life – today.
