Identifying your GOALS

Goals are like magnets

Identifying Your Goals

I have spoken about goals often in my blogs, I hope they are as important to you s they are to me..  They are a part of our lives FOR EVER!

Many people have stalled goals, so I am sure this was very helpful to many people.  But also many people don’t really have "proper" goals at all.

How about you?  What are your main goals?  Not goals for your business (whether it belongs to you or you are simply an employee).  Not goals you have for others (your partner or your children for example).  Yes, you need business and family goals, but you also need real personal goals.  So what are your personal goals?

At this point I know I will have lost some of my readers, as when they look at their stated goals they realize they don’t have any personal goals, just goals for others.  If you are in that group, bear with me.

Now let’s have a look at those personal goals and see how real they are.

Determination Desire Goals etcFirstly, hands up those who gave a monetary goal.  Perhaps an amount of money in the bank (maybe £1Mllion?).  Or a regular amount you want to receive every month or every year?  If your hand is up, let me be a bit controversial.  What you have isn’t a real goal at all!  It may be a way you can achieve the goal, but it isn’t a goal in itself.  Unfortunately, though, many people try to turn this means to an end into the end itself.  Wanting to gain a certain amount of money in order to achieve an end goal is not a bad thing.  But wanting to gain that money with no other aim other than simply to have the money is not a good thing.  Not a good thing at all!

If you felt your goal was a certain amount of money, I would like you to start digging deeper.  Why do you want that money?  What will you use it for?  What will it change in your life?  Whatever answers you get to those questions, as long as those answers inspire you, then those are your real goals, not the money.  Some people will probably feel I am splitting hairs here, and that it doesn’t matter what you want the money for, that first you want to get the money and then you can decide how to use it.  You could not get further from the truth!  Your goal has to inspire you.  It has to be a real goal.  Money is NOT a real goal.  It doesn’t hurt to include it as one of your goals, but only as a minor goal and not your main target.

This is a fine world for the person who knows precisely what he or she expects from life and is busy getting it.
We are happiest when we are striving to achieve a goal. When we achieve one goal, it’s a natural human tendency to set another, usually bigger, one. W. Clement Stone calls it inspirational dissatisfaction — the let own one experiences after a goal has been achieved and before the next step toward a new one has been taken. When you begin to experience that nagging feeling, it’s time to get into action! Make sure you have a long-range plan in place so that when one short-term goal has been achieved, there is a natural progression toward the next. Napoleon Hill

The reality is that although money can be used to get whatever it is you want to have, it is not usually the only possible way to get it.  Maybe it is the most likely way – it probably is.  But it is not the ONLY way.  And on the basis of that well-known quote "the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil" (1 Timothy 6:10) I urge you not to put your main emphasis on simply acquiring wealth without knowing why you want to acquire it and exactly how you plan to use it.

Many people, when they first realize the mistake they have made in confusing wealth and their real goals, suddenly find they have true goals that they didn’t really recognize before.  Goals that really excite them.  And even in some cases goals that don’t need any greater wealth for them to be achievable.

Through the harmony and ultimately the balance of the feminine energy, of that goddess energy, you will unlock the Vortex of Power that lies within. – Lazaris

Secondly, hands up those who gave what, frankly, they would consider an unrealistic goal.  Often this mistake is compounded by being a monetary goal too.  Back to our £ Million in the bank account when, perhaps, you have a minimum wage job and no more money in your account than is needed for this month’s expenses.  Whether the unrealistic goal is a monetary goal or not, if you see it as unrealistic you should modify it.

Notice I have said "if you see it as unrealistic".  Not "if it is unrealistic".  The key factor here is what you truly believe is possible, not what IS possible.  I happen to believe that everything is possible.  But that doesn’t mean I will try working towards goals that I know make me flinch when I state them, with an inner belief that this is not achievable for me yet.  Everything is possible, but many of those possibilities are an end goal that seems too far away to excite us into trying to achieve it now.

Your thoughts ceate your futureIdentify your personal goals, examine them, ensure they excite you, and ensure they don’t elicit from you an immediate reaction that they are not possible.  As a result of this examination, don’t be afraid to change those goals.  Your goals should always be evolving anyway.  The goals you have today are most unlikely to be the same goals you had five years ago, and are just as unlikely to be the same goals you will have in five years’ time.  If you didn’t immediately come up with any goals, then now is the time to try finding some.  Identify real personal goals and, trust me, you will find your life is more meaningful – and the meaning will make you happier.

Work towards real, personal goals, and as you move closer to them and achieve some of them, replace them with other, perhaps more ambitious goals.

The power is from within, the choice is yours

Five Secrets Guaranteeing Success

Focus on the WHY of life and not the HOW, remembering that where focus goes, energy flows.                                                                                                                               Success and failure comes in pairs. Either you have a pair of Aces called “Resolve & Undenied” or a pair of jokers called “Wishing & Wanting You’re hand to play.       Gray Lawrence

What if there was a secret book somewhere that could virtually guarantee your success, would you want to know where it was? What if there were unwritten rules and laws inside that book that only a small number of people knew about and what if those laws could literally change your whole life; would you play by those rules and adhere to those laws in order to have the life you really want? Would that secret book be your Bible?

Think about it for a moment; if you were handed a secret book with a set of rules and a simple but powerful formula to follow that would allow you to own your life, would you read that book from front to back cover and put the secrets to work for you or would you leave it standing idle on your bookshelf and forget about it?

(Wikipedia)

If you’re ready to push aside your past and plan a future that is everything you’ve ever wanted, what follows is a secret formula to making millions in your MLM that is more valuable than any book you will ever read. Let’s take a look at it…

5 Secrets To Changing Your Life

The First Secret – Your Past is NOT Your Future.

We are all influenced by the past. It might be that our parents, peers or siblings presented us with situations and challenges when we were young children that we were not always comfortable with and that we struggled to come through in the way we would have wanted to. This is simply a part of life but for some, this time of failure (as it is often viewed), leaves a heavy footprint in the sand.

clip_image001

The secret to creating the future you desire and truly deserve is to leave this footprint behind. Allow the sea to wash over it until the footprint is washed away. Now move on…

The Second Secret – Your Beliefs Become Your Reality.

The human mind is more powerful that any computer. It has the ability to store an unlimited amount of information and solve the most complex problems and has taken our species from the dark ages to a place where we are now globally connected in ways many of our ancestors could only dream of. We all have the power to create change and develop ideas into life changing realities. Those who we remember for their achievements and inventions had one single thing in common; a belief in what they were able to achieve and that belief enabled them to create what we remember them for. Edison’s first electric light bulb, Einstein’s theory of relativity, Levi Strauss’ Denims. We remember their achievements and inventions which were a result of their belief in a new reality.

When you focus on what you believe will be your achievements and see them mapped out in front of you (goal by goal), your beliefs become your reality over time and your journey, struggle by struggle, simply becomes a part of the process of getting to where you are going.

The Third Secret – Your Actions Become Your Habits.

Affirmations create long term mental change and are valuable to the process of change. Results come from a different place and are achieved as an output of some kind of action. Great results are the outcome of focused activity, while poor results are the outcome of unplanned random acts (subconsciously intended to fail).

Successful entrepreneurs have three basic attributes in common; strong work ethic, self belief and laser targeted focus on the task in hand. This doesn’t mean you should never have more than one thing in the pot when you are planning to cook up some serious change. In contrast, wealth is often created through multiple streams of income. The key to creating that wealth, though, is to focus and complete one task at a time. Creating, planning and carrying out many tasks over time that will have a deep impact on the overall plan you have put in place.

Understand why you want to achieve change and then put a detailed plan in place of how that change will take place. Once your plan is in place, break it down into daily, weekly and monthly tasks that you must complete and watch your actions become the habits of a successful entrepreneur.

The Fourth Secret – Your Heart Will Lead To Wealth.

Business is often seen as the domain of grey suits, reserved relationships and serious conversation and at times this is needed. There is a place also for laughter, love and deep connections. Connecting with your customers, business partners and team members and creating the type of workplace or business that doesn’t feel like work and feels more like a cause. Creating great connections brings people together behind a cause and allows you to bring people with you on your journey.

These connections will help you to truly unlock the secret and throw open the door to riches by creating the lifestyle you are searching for. A life unrestricted by the “norms” and expectations of business life and led by your heart and not your head.

The Fifth Secret – Your Goals Are Greater Than Your Gain.

Great gifts are often wrapped in simple paper. When we begin this journey we’re often so deep in debt or feeling so lost in our current place in life, that our focus is on something that is simply material. We’d like a new car or a holiday with the family or we would do anything to have an extra few thousand in our bank account each month. These material things will only carry us so far on this journey and after a while will cease to inspire us to reach our true potential.

clip_image003

The secret to creating the life you know is out there waiting for you is to have a goal that is truly bigger than your gain. This is different for each of us and will only come to you when you are ready to receive it. When it does, make it your legacy and your journey will fall into place.

The Secret Book – Changing Your Life

Changing your life and creating the future you desire starts when you make a decision to fulfil your dream. You may be focused on your current problems, your challenges and concerns right now and have little more in your sights than that looming credit card bill or mortgage payment. You may hate your job and the people you work with or feel that your social life has simply vanished beneath a pile of personal responsibilities and free time is nothing but a dream. These are real challenges and often take over our lives without being invited to..

When we push through these challenges we are able to make a space for the things we truly value to come into focus; our family and loved ones, our health and happiness and our true desire to leave the world a better place through our actions and achievements. This is the real secret.   Neil Ashworth

This decade is going to be a BIG one for the multi level marketing industry and 2012 is likely to be the year MLM really takes off but before you head off into the wilderness and find yourself up at all hours searching for the best MLM to join take a few minutes to read the steps below and set yourself off on the right foot. Read on to find the best MLM in 2012.

Let’s begin!

Multi level marketing is a proven and time tested business model, but for many it is still the land that time forgot. A place where only the brave (or some say foolish) will ever go and where great MLM monsters walk the land waiting for some unsuspecting newcomer to pick up and devour. Face facts, network marketing has had its share of horror stories over the years but are those stories a fair reflection of the industry and what it can offer you in 2012 and beyond?

I don’t believe YOU should ever believe what others tell you is the truth, until you can stand and review the information being provided to you feeling truly informed and knowledgeable. Without knowledge you have no control over your future and with knowledge your future is truly limitless.  Gather that knowledge and do your due diligence before committing your future (or not) to the wonderful world of MLM.

Frustration can become like a chain and it can strangle your efforts for success or you can get the key out and open the lock. Key is the key of Decision that unchains the future, your future

Working hard is the foundation for any success in life, but many people have the “What if” Disease! , they see “Working hard as Hardly Working” & expect the same results

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I’d want to pass along to others…

by Christian Del RosarioTransformation arises not through ambition or self-will, but amidst our surrender to the One Who holds all things together through His Word. Generally, we don’t take steps toward growth until the pain of staying the same exceeds the pain of change. Only in that place does true surrender begin.

Transformation begins with a decision to forgive and to extend unconditional grace, acceptance, and love to the one who did us harm.

Transformation grows with our decision to believe the best about another, remembering their best qualities, and overlooking their offenses.

Transformation flourishes when we acknowledge we live in the midst of a spiritual battle.

Transformation occurs when we let go of preconceived ideas of what should have been and collectively work toward one another’s best interests, serving one another in all humility.

Transformation begins in our heart and the private meditations of our thoughts. We experience greater joy and fulfilment in our relationships as we train our mind and speech to stop saying harmful words and practice the daily discipline of believing and speaking encouraging words of affirmation.

Transformation begins when we focus on what is essential and intentionally practice the good things we know we should do.

Transformation fails when we seek our own way, fail to take responsibility for our own actions, and selfishly insist on gratifying our own desires. But, when we look to meet our spouse’s needs, and look for opportunities to nurture growth through our affection and affirmation, we invite connection as God intended between spouses.

Transformation requires change. We either move towards growth to reflect more of God, or we become stagnant.

Transformation occurs when we reach forward, commit to dream, and welcome from a distance the hope of our faith. God invites us to believe the best and inspire the best in our spouse. He encourages us to invite Him into our dreams, our imaginations, and our relationships.

Transformation flourishes when we seek to promote another’s happiness over our own.

Transformation occurs when we look inward and decide, “What’s my part? How can I help? How do I need to change?”

Transformation takes place within our own heart, individually. We cannot change another person. We are responsible for our own life and actions.

Transformation takes time. It requires my concentrated attention and intentional actions. It is a result of an on going process; it’s more than an event.

Transformation occurs when we fully realize God loves us passionately and designed us on purpose for a purpose.

Transformation requires letting go of offenses and extending forgiveness.

Transformation believes and brings out the best in others.

Transformation applies knowledge with action.

Transformation requires intentionality and applied action, consistently.

Transformation is a journey toward becoming our greatest potential.

A Secret Scrolls message from Rhona Byrne
Creator of The Secret

From The Secret Daily Teachings

Most people don’t realize how much passion they put into what they don’t want. When you speak to a friend and you tell them all about an "awful" situation, you are putting passion into what you don’t want. When you react to an event negatively, with the response that it is "terrible", you are putting passion into what you don’t want. You are a beautiful passionate being, so make sure you direct your passion wisely.

May the joy be with you,

What is the Purpose of your business

There is a Secret to Getting What You Want.

Asking the right questions can help you get back on the right trackLet’s start by asking you to answer a question. Without intellectualizing it or thinking what you think might be a clever answer, please say out loud the very FIRST thing that comes to your mind…
What’s the Purpose of your business…? Or any business in the world?
Perhaps your answer might be something like, “Make money” or “To make a profit” or “To be fulfilled”.  Or, perhaps your answer was, “To help others” or “To help people  solve their problems.”

Two different answers and two different vibrations or energy.  If your answer was similar to the first one, such as making money, ask yourself this, where is the focus? On you, or the other person? It’s on you and what you want, isn’t it? This is your Personal Agenda or Personal Objective.

Whether you think you can or can’t, either way you are right.” – Henry Ford

The second set?  Your focus is on them! To help them get what they want. This is what is called as coming from a place of Purpose. Two different ways of thinking and two different ways of taking action on that thinking.
PURPOSE AND PERSONAL AGENDA

You want to become aware of your thoughts, you want to choose your thoughts carefully and you want to have fun with this, because you are the masterpiece of your own life.” – Joe Vitale

The reason I ask the question “What is the Purpose of a business?” is to mentally prepare you the Natural Selling Training, because your answer reveals something that is vitally important… your words give you away!!   What do I mean by this?  Well, have you ever thought that your thoughts and words are energy that people directly or indirectly feel? Have you ever thought people consciously and subconsciously feel and know your real intent? That they know whether you are focused on your Personal Agenda, which is about you and what you want, or on your Purpose, which is about helping them get what they want?

Let a person radically alter his thoughts, and he will be astonished at the rapid transformation it will effect in the material conditions of his life. ” Napoleon Hill

To paraphrase an ancient saying…
What come out of your mouth is determined by what goes into your mind“Your words are an extension of your thoughts Your actions are an extension of your words And your habits are an extension of your actions”  What you receive in life, and the way people respond to you, is based on your words, your actions and your habits. And it all starts where? With a thought! Everything starts with a thought. That’s why thoughts are so powerful. That’s why choosing how you think and act will determine how life and people respond to you So back to the original question about the purpose of your business! The questions you have to ask yourself then, is, are you really in business for you, (Personal Agenda) or are you in it for other people (Purpose)? The truth is in the following question;

If your solution cannot solve someone’s problem, is there any reason for them to do business with you? No, there isn’t! So the real purpose of a business then is not about you and what you want, it’s to help other people solve their problems, or get what they want, need or desire. And that is what is behind the first principle of the Natural Selling Approach…

PRINCIPLE 1. NATURAL SELLING IS HELPING OTHER PEOPLE SOLVE THEIR
PROBLEMS.

Believe in yourself and your abilities. That is the only way to attract wonderful things into your life. Don’t waste your time thinking that you cannot do something. Dr. Steve & Frank

To take this further… Another ancient saying says, “When you seek to serve, you ultimately serve yourself!” It’s just a matter of knowing how to do it! And that is precisely what the Natural Selling approach will do for you. It will allow you to effortlessly and easily approach and help others get what they want and ultimately allow you to get what you want without any anxiety in the process of doing so. Now, if you know how to help people solve their problems, and you
can do it with your own solutions, you will achieve what? Your Personal Agenda, which is your own reason for being in business isn’t it?

SELLING AS A PROBLEM SOLVING EXERCISE
Success mean...  Zig ZiglarIf the purpose of a business is to help other people solve their problems, you could say that selling is merely a Problem Solving Exercise. Contrary to the conventional approach, it’s not a telling or persuading exercise. It’s all to do with problem solving.   Become a problem solver – look for them. Because with problems comes what? Opportunities! Opportunities for you is to help others get what they want and to be rewarded for it.  Tomorrow we will look closely at how you practically and effortlessly do this by using a powerful approach of communicating called Dialogue. until the next Lesson!
EXERCISES
1. Reflect on how by serving others, you can achieve what it is that you want.
2. Two quotes to think about:
“You can get anything you want if you help enough people get what
they want” – Zig Ziglar
“Help me, Rod, help me to help you!” – Jerry Maguire in the movie
“Jerry Maguire”.

“Let a person radically alter his thoughts, and he will be astonished at the rapid transformation it will effect in the material conditions of his life. ” Napoleon Hill

You can most certainly help others through your thoughts, and they can help you. Every good thought you send to another is a living force. However, the person you are sending the thought to has to be asking for the same thing you are sending. If the person does not want it, then they are not in harmony with your thought frequency, and it will not penetrate them.

You cannot create in another’s life against their will, but if it is something they want, your thoughts are a real force that helps them. May the joy be with you, Rhonda Byrne

my brain is like the bermuda triangle  information goes in but then lostWe are all different in many ways that is what makes us all unique and special to others and of course ourselves.  there are books out in the wide world on people and their individual skills.  you can also get the old system in the original headings like; Peaceful Flegmatic; Sanguine etc, from the best books ever by and they are called, “The Personality Tree” & “Personality Plus“ by “Florence Litauer” and non better than this using more recognisable and easy to remember “COLOURS”  Red Blue Green & Yellow;  from IMA and my version of the colours.  If not seen before please use these links and remember to vote!!

Know yourself! Watch how you manifest the small things in life and think about how you felt inside with those things. Think about how easily they came. You will find that you thought of a small thing once and never thought about it again, and then it manifested.

What really happened was you didn’t think any thoughts or speak any words which contradicted what you wanted, so the law of attraction was able to do its work. May the joy be with you, – Rhonda Byrne
