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.

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.

Is Bitcoin In A Bubble?

“An Investment In Knowledge Pays The Best Interest”*

Because of my expertise in investments and human psychology, which are closely linked together, I’ve been asked if bitcoin is in a bubble. The short answer is no – not yet. And here’s why.

In The Road To Ruin {<Interview} and Currency Wars {<Free Copy}, Jim Rickards discusses how “the elite” know that a global economic crash is coming soon.

“Know What You Own, And Know Why You Own It”*

Although Rickards says that he doesn’t like bitcoin, I know that he has to defend his position because of his book The New Case For Gold. Yet, in all of his books, he states that because of the impending global crash, the governments, the Fed, and the central banks want to ban paper money, and push everyone into digital currencies.

Which is succeeding because most people pay with their debit card, etc. And soon enough most stores and restaurants will no longer accept payments in fiat paper form.

“The Four Most Dangerous Words In Investing Are: ‘This Time Is Different'”*

By accepting this unprecedented cycle in economic history, you can ride the wave up before the governments do what they have always done; which is to seize control of the monetary supply for their own profit while oppressing the masses.

This past week bitcoin hit a new high of about $11,500 per unit. It has also risen about 900% year to date.

Therefore, it should come as no surprise that also in the past week, the US government decided to obtain transaction records in order to get their half of the profits from anyone who was astute enough to make money from bitcoin.

Now, that’s all fine and dandy because we’re all used to the government taking a nice chunk of our earnings, so that they can bail out the banks. And of course, pay for the politicians to go on a well deserved vacation after doing all that debating.

But, what most people aren’t aware of is that the US government and the Fed have made it legal for the big banks to short the gold and silver market in the futures exchange.

Basically, the banks print up paper derivatives at will in order to manipulate and suppress the precious metals market for huge profits. There are at least 100 paper claims to every ounce of metal. Of course, if anyone else did that they would be brought up on charges, but the banksters instead get bonuses.

Just look at what they got away with during and after the subprime mortgage crisis. And how the Hunt brothers were intentionally wiped out by continuously raised margin calls in order to pummel the price of silver from about $49 an ounce down to under $11 an ounce.

“How Many Millionaires Do You Know Who Have Become Wealthy By Investing In Savings Accounts?”*

The US government is desperately trying to hold onto the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency by pushing up their stock market to create the wealth effect. And because of the tell-tale signs in the prices of gold and silver they push those down.

But, only a fool is fooled by the Fed and their false data and fake unemployment numbers. Which is why China and Russia are buying tons of gold and silver.

But, it’s backfired on the US because people are piling into crypto currencies instead of precious metals – which have been proven to be real money for 5,000 years.

“Be Fearful When Others Are Greedy. Be Greedy When Others Are Fearful”*

It may take up to a year for the US government to make it legal for the banksters to decimate the price of bitcoin in the futures market. But, don’t kid yourself and get too greedy, the US is full of malarkey.

Until then bitcoin should at least double in price, so buy some asap. It’s relatively easy – just make sure to quadruple check your wallet addresses because a third of all bitcoin investment has been lost due to wrong addresses. Copy and paste it, then check it several times, and you’ll be paid well for your due diligence.

Then watch the markets and future exchange news daily. Already on 18 December 2017 they’ll be listing bitcoin on the futures exchange, and if you actually think that the powers that be will let it go up to a hundred grand or more – you got another thing coming. But, then again – patience always wins the war..

Of course, I may be biased because of how much I dislike the self-righteous, hypocritical, and antiquated system. I’m a rebel, but I have a cause and an open mind,et still the best economic predictor I know of is Max Keiser.

Bitcoin is extremely volatile, but don’t let that bother you – it will keep going up because digital currency is the wave of the future. Don’t be duped by the Fed raising rates a quarter of a percent, or saying that they’re going to. They’re just trying to get ready for the next crash, so they can do what they did last time – print up trillions of dollars out of thin air while lowering interest rates way down.

It’s interesting to me that when someone robs a bank and gets caught that they go to prison for at least ten years, but the banksters blatantly steal from the masses on a regular bases and get bonuses for it.

But, this post is’nt about that. It’s to tell you that there’s still time to buy bitcoin, yet I prefer litecoin. I’m also into ethereum, stock index funds, and I hold PHYSICAL precious metals long term because the law of cycles always wins the war.

I’m also patiently waiting for the US stock market to crash, so that I can swoop down and buy up tons of stock index funds while they’re on sale. And I love real estate that is not in any major city – unless it’s a rental property.

Of course, my abundance mindset all started when I started to Think And Grow Rich {<Free Copy}.

As I always say – do your own thing, but just do it now. And remember like Emerson said, “the first wealth is health.”
