This technique is beguiling in its simplicity but immensely powerful and life-changing if utilized properly. I’m a big believer in writing down my goals on a piece of paper and beside each goal the reason why it is important to me.
This is a fundamental basic requirement of goal setting.
Your Life’s Purpose
If you do your goals often alone, you will increase your chances of success. However, if you want to increase this “chance” to being a near “certainty” than you’ve got to deeply imprint the goal and its emotional outcome onto your unconscious mind and believe without doubt that you can achieve it. In a way, this technique goes way beyond traditional goal setting and motivation and more towards self-realization. Either which way, whether you simply want to achieve some essential goals this year to move your life forward or want to connect with your true nature and fulfill your life’s purpose, the technique outlined in this article holds the keys to the vault to achieving your new year’s resolutions and all goals in life.
The essence of MBO “Management By Objectives” is participative goal setting, choosing course of actions and decision making. An important part of the MBO is the measurement and the comparison of the employees’s actual performance with the standards set. Ideally, when employees themselves have been involved with the goal setting and choosing the course of action to be followed by them, they are more likely to fulfill their responsibilities.
The basics of goal settings will involve deciding what you really want to do with your personal life and what goals you need to meet to achieve it. Then you have to break down goals into the smaller and manageable targets to complete on your way to achieving your wealth targets. Once you have your plan set out, immediately start tackling your goals.
Think Positive And Work On Your Goals
The good news is that you have many more choices available to you in your goal setting than were available even a few years ago. Evening classes are usually offered. There are also some colleges that offer weekend classes for working adults. Many colleges and universities are now providing accelerated courses where you focus on only one or two classes at a time until those are finished.
SMART goal setting provides you with all the ingredients to making your hopes and dreams come true, keeping you on track and on your life purpose. Living a life of purpose, a life that is purpose driven, can lead to greater happiness. Setting and achieving goals based on your life purpose can lead to a greater sense of personal satisfaction and fulfillment. With a life that is purpose driven, teeming with goals, you’ll soon discover for yourself what is the meaning of success.
Most people write goals as one-liners on a piece of paper but in order for goal setting to be truly effective you need to bring all your senses into the creation of the goal and develop a mental picture completed with accompanying feelings of what it would feel like when you achieve that goal. This is a bit of a Jedi mind trick to be honest. You’re trying to trick your unconscious mind into believing the outcome has already occurred. To do that you need to overload the senses so that the movie kind of spills over into your unconscious mind.
Your Mind-Set Determines Your Success
Your unconscious mind is non-reasoning. It can’t actually tell the difference between whether something is right or wrong and something that’s happened and something it thinks has happened. So, as a result of doing this “mind programming” your unconscious mind dictates your conscious actions so that you start behaving and doing things as if you had already achieved that goal. So, for instance, if you managed to successfully install the program of you being fit and toned looking deep into your mind using the techniques outlined in this article, your behaviour will actually change despite yourself. You’ll stop reaching for the nachos and beer, maybe go for a run or pump some iron down at the gym.
Then create a daily to-do list of things that you should do today to work towards your lifetime goals. At an early stage, these goals may be to read books and gather information on the achievement of your goals. This will help you to improve the quality and realism of your goal setting.
Finally review your plans, and make sure that they fit the way in which you want to live your life.
