Top 10 Goal Setting Tips

“Most People Go To Where The Puck Is, I Go To Where It’s Going To Be”*

Writing your goals down on paper seems like such a simple step, but less than 3% of the population ever bother to do it. Yet those same 3% own more wealth than all of the other 97% combined.

It’s power lies in the fact that before you can achieve anything worthwhile, you must know exactly what it is that you want. After all how can you make your dreams come true if you’re unclear about what they are?

The law of cause and effect states that you always reap what you have sown. In other words, whatever you plant in the fertile soil of your imagination with clarity of vision, then nurture with action, will inevitably reap you a bountiful harvest.

“As You Think, So You Become”*

By putting your goals on paper, you activate The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind {<Free Copy} by Joseph Murphy. Which then sets in motion the law of attraction because whatever you think about the most starts to flow towards you as you move toward it.

Sitting For Ideas

A Healthy Body Improves The Mind

I’ve read Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude  {<Free Copy} a few times. In it, the authors Napoleon Hill and W.Clement Stone tell a story about Elmer R. Gates.

When Hill was doing research for Think and Grow Rich {<Free Copy} he went to Dr. Gate’s laboratory with a letter of introduction from Andrew Carnegie. When he asked to see him, Gate’s secretary said that she was not permitted to disturb Dr. Gates at that time. When Hill asked why, she answered, “He is sitting for ideas.”

Hill waited and when he saw Gates, he asked him about what his secretary had said. So Gates asked Hill if he wanted to see where he sat for ideas. Then he showed him a small, soundproof room with only a plain table and chair. On the table were pads of paper, pencils, and a push-button to turn the lights off and on.

A Little Something More

During his lifetime, Dr. Gates discovered and developed hundreds of inventions through this creative thinking process.

When he was searching for a solution to a problem, Gates went into this room, turned off the lights, and engaged in deep concentration. Using the principle of controlled attention, Gates would ask his subconscious mind to give him an answer to a specific problem. As soon as the ideas began to flow, Gates would turn on the light and begin to write.

With this process, Gates refined and perfected over 200 patents that other inventors had undertaken, but had fallen just short of success. Gates would examine the application for patent and its drawings until he found its weakness. Then he would sit for ideas, and he would find the missing ingredient – the something more that was needed.

Correspondingly, I’ve found that by concentrating on solutions to life’s challenges, that most of them only need a little something extra to improve them.

Keep The Faith

By clearing your mind, going into the silence, and using the power of concentration you will find a solution. Learn how to harness The Power Of The Subconscious Mind {<Free Copy} then go to it and ask for help.

Ask your subconscious mind which is In Tune With The Infinite {<Free Copy} Intelligence of the universe to send you an answer. Sometimes it comes fast, and sometimes it may take a few days, but it will always come if you keep believe that it will.

When you ask your mind for something specific, you send out waves of energy into the Universal Mind that set in motion the law of attraction. Then what you search for starts to drift towards you.

One of the secrets to success in any endeavour is the ability to aim the mind upon the desired target. In essence, by going into the silence and sitting for ideas, you’ll find solutions and discover ways in which to improve your life.

Just give a little something extra in every area of your life, and you’ll find that it will make a huge difference.

All the best, – Herb.



How To Get Motivated

“Don’t Find Fault, Find A Remedy; Anybody Can Complain”*

If it wasn’t for Henry Ford, life as we know it might not exist today. Ford changed the face of the world by inventing, then mass-producing the automobile.

Without his “horseless buggy” as it was initially called, there would have been no need for so many roads, highways, gas stations, fast-food franchises, and motels.

It’s hard to believe that at first Ford was actually laughed at, and considered by many to be a crazy inventor. But, crazy or not Ford was a high achiever who knew how to get and stay motivated.

Lacking formal education and any training as a mechanic, Ford educated himself. He was the ultimate expression of determination because he refused to accept any limitations.

“Anything Worth Having, Is Worth Working For”*

In NLP: The New Technology Of Achievement{<Free Audiobook} by NLP Comprehensive, they show how to model successful people. When you find out what steps they’ve taken and how they think, then you can do and think the same way and get the same results.

That always made sense to me, so in order to become a high achiever myself, I studied success and came up with a formula to get myself motivated. Here’s what I deduced.

In analyzing and interviewing over 500 of the richest and most successful people of his era, Napoleon Hill wrote his Keys To Success: The 17 Principles Of Personal Achievement {<Free Audiobook}.

And just like NLP teaches, Hill also concluded that if you want success, then study successful people and do and think as they do.

A few of the many people that Hill interviewed were Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, and Thomas Edison. These great men were all powerhouse achievers.

I’ve found that 2 of Hill’s 17 principles are at the core of motivation: a definite major purpose and a burning desire to achieve it.

For example, Ford, Edison, and Carnegie all had a definite major purpose – they knew exactly what it was that they wanted. And they had the desire to achieve it – they stoked the fire of they desire in their mind’s eye through visualization, which cultivated their unstoppable determination.

Most people struggle through life, but quite honestly, the 10 steps to a happy and successful life have already been built for all those who dare to climb them:

  1. Decide exactly what it is that you want out of life.
  2. Put it in writing & read it regularly.
  3. Come up with plans for achieving it.
  4. Study up on it.
  5. Find somebody who’s done it already & model them.
  6. Think about it & visualize it often.
  7.  Pray to God and/or your subconscious mind for help and guidance.
  8. Be grateful for it as though it was a present fact.
  9. Link pain to not working on it, and pleasure to taking massive action.
  10. Chip away at the stone, day after day until your masterpiece is created.

“Opportunity Is Missed By Most People Because It Is Dressed In Overalls And Looks Like Work”*

Experience has taught me that it’s harder work to go through life putting most things off than to actually do them. When you put things off, you still expend a lot of time and energy thinking about whatever it is that you want to do, and know that you should be doing. Plus, you end up feeling lousy about yourself because you’re a slacker.

Conversely, when you work on your goals it releases an endorphin rush that can become addictive. And it raises your levels of self-esteem, confidence, and happiness. Which then gets you even more motivated.

Since you’re going to live out your life one way or the other, why not spend it working on your goals because only then can you make all your dreams come true, and leave your mark upon the world.

All the best, – Herb.
