Goals are of vital importance in your life and it’s pretty difficult to achieve your goals without combining your mind and effective goal-setting. Creating an ageless lifestyle doesn’t happen by chance. Only small goals that require little or no stretching on your part are easy to achieve without a process in place. And those don’t really get you anywhere, do they?
Yet, many people live their entire lives without any definite purpose, simply drifting from shiny object to shiny object. Setting goals gets you to focus your life and to advance confidently in a definite direction. Without goals and their achievement, your life can’t truly be complete.
If you’re looking for proof of the importance of goals, you don’t need to look any farther than a pivotal study on success and goal-setting by Dr. Lewis Terman of Stanford University.
Dr. Terman conducted a study of 1,528 students all with IQ’s above the genius level. His study found that intelligence had nothing to do with success and financial acumen but that goal-setting did!
So now we know that goal-setting is vitally important to our success, but how do we do it?
Some wise people recommend that you try to write down 100 goals for your life. This practice has always been part of my goals process and I believe it’s a foundational piece.
Lou Holtz, the tremendously successful football coach at Notre Dame, said that while still in his teens he wrote down over 100 goals for his life (one of which was to coach a college football team to a National Championship – which he did). A few years ago at about the age of 60, Coach Holtz had achieved every single goal he had written down. So he wrote another 100 goals.
As part of my program, “Ageless Lifestyle Guide to Goal Setting and Achieving”, I recommend that you write 100, write them out and break them out into long-term, and short-term goals. You can write your own definition of the time periods involved.
Now that you have goals, you need to start taking advantage of them! This is where most would-be goal-setters fail. Anyone can write a goal, but I’d wager that if you asked 10 goal-setters what their short-term goals were after a week of setting those goals, that 9 out of 10 would not be able to answer!
You need goals in your life in order to achieve your dreams, have the success you desire and live an ageless lifestyle after 50. But just as important is a system for keeping your goals constantly in your mind. That’s where the guide to goal setting and achieving can help you.
Then, each morning, the first thing you should do is spend 5 – 10 minutes and invest it in programming your mind to achieve the goals you have set for yourself. By doing so, you are imprinting or programming your mind each day to focus on what you want. By doing this consistently your subconscious mind will begin to manifest your desires into your life.”
What I’ve found works best for is to review your short-term goals daily, and then once a week review long-term goals making adjustments as necessary to the terms of specific goals. This keeps you focused on achieving the goals in the shorter term without forgetting about the goals on the horizon. Use the pre-made forms in “Ageless Lifestyle Guide to Goal Setting and Achieving” to keep yourself on track and accountable.
I want you to be tremendously successful and I believe you will be with the techniques and exercises we’ve discussed here. Be a goal-setter, but don’t just set them and walk away.
That’s why I created, “Ageless Lifestyle Guide to Goal Setting and Achieving”.
