Your Goal Setting Sucks

I’ve  been a fanatical goal setter for most of my life.

I’ve also never hit one on time. Hmm….

I’ve never quit on a goal, but I sure have seen my share of set backs, delays and side roads on my journey to health, wealth and joy. This journey we call life, is exciting for sure, because I admit I am always in a constant state of learning and I love it.

Recently, I’ve been on a Bob Proctor kick and I’ve been playing his audio courses over and over in my head for weeks. Here’s a quick run down on some paradigms associated with goals.

Old Goal Setting:

  1. Have a goal
  2. Make a commitment
  3. Write it down
  4. Assign a date to your goal
  5. Believe in yourself
  6. Work towards your goal
  7. Persevere

New Goal Achieving:

  1. Dream BIGGER: Have a dream that scares you…one so big you are afraid to share it with anyone
  2. Visualize CLEARLY: Describe that dream in such lucid detail that is is as real as reality
  3. Use all your SENSES: Create that dream in pictures, words, smell, taste, touch and experience.
  4. Embed into both BRAINS: Anchor it into your subconscious.
  5. Chunk it DOWN: Transform that dream into bite-sized objectives.
  6. REPETITION: Visually represent that objective and paste it in front of your face 24/7.
  7. COMMIT: Vow to reach your objective with no date whatsoever.
  8. Be ACCOUNTABLE: Get an accountability partner to hold you to it.
  9. Make it a HABIT: Take any and all action necessary DAILY to manifest that objective.
  10. NEVER relent.

Rinse and repeat on objective #2.

Continue your milestones until your dream is your lifestyle.
