Here are 7 steps to manifesting your goals quickly
Why do some people seem to have them Midas touch when it comes to achieving goals? Two of the most common reasons and most talked about yet often overlooked are really quite simple – they write their goals out AND look at them regularly.
Writing your goals down forces you to crystalize what exactly you hope to accomplish. This simple act has a way of making your goal stick in your mind and gets your brain working on the details of making it happen. One study found that you are 42 percent more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down.
Part of that reason is simply because the act of writing engages another sense and anytime you employ more than one sense you solidify the information taking it deeper into your subconscious, And…our subconscious mind does not know the difference between what is real and what is imagined. So this very act of writing your goals and adding another sense to the process of goal imaging actually impresses the goal upon your subconscious giving you far greater chance of achieving your gaol then if you merely think about it.
Successful people develop the habits of personal strategic planning. They sit down and make a list of exactly what they want to accomplish in the short, medium, and long term. They then use a powerful, seven-part goal-setting methodology to create blueprints and plans of action that they follow every day.
Once you develop the habit of setting goals and making plans to accomplish them, it will become as natural for you as breathing. By following a proven goal-setting process, you’ll increase the likelihood of achieving your goals by as much as ten times, by 1,000 percent or more. This isn’t just a theory; it has been proven.
Many formulas and recipes exist for goal setting. As a rule, “any plan is better than no plan at all.” Here is one of the most effective goal-setting plans:
One: Decide exactly what you want in a certain area, and write it down clearly, in detail.
Two: Place your goal where you’ll see it daily. This could be a vision board, a note you carry in your wallet. Taped to your bathroom mirror, one your computer’s home screen, get creative and find areas that you look at each and every day and place your goal in those areas.
Three: Set a deadline for achieving the goal. If it’s a large goal, break it down into smaller parts and incremental goals. I like to work in 90 day increments. I then break those down into monthly, weekly and daily actionable steps.
Four: Make a list of everything you’ll have to do to achieve this goal. As you think of new items, add them to your list until it’s complete.
Five: Identify the obstacles or limitations that might hold you back from achieving your goal, both in the situation and within yourself. Ask yourself, “Why have I not achieved this goal already?” Asking yourself questions will give you key indicators as to what may be holding you back, not just from a tactical perspective, but from a mental one, as well.
Identify the most important item or limitation that’s holding you back, and then focus on removing that limiting factor. It could be a time, knowledge or learning a new skill. But, more often than not, you’ll find that you avoid taking action due to subconscious patterns or old scripts running through your mind that hold you back or have you making excuses.
Whatever it is, identify it clearly and go to work to eliminate it.
Six: Once you’ve determined your goal, developed your plan, and identified your major obstacle, immediately take action of some kind toward achieving your goal. Step out in faith. Do the first thing that comes to mind, but do something to start moving toward your most important goal. Momentum is key to success. Action creates clarity which builds momentum which will propel you forward towards your goals.
Seven: Do at least one thing every day that moves you toward your most important goal. Make a habit of planning your next day each night and then doing something that moves you at least one step closer to those goals that are significant to you.
Daily action deepens your belief that the goal is achievable and activates the law of attraction. As a result, you begin moving faster and faster toward your goal, and your goal begins moving faster and faster toward you.
