LATEST NEWS

No news is good news

.
No news is good news, as the saying goes, but there is something of value in that. To reach your goals you must remain positive at all times. As I often say, “I believe that the number one lesson from personal development is that it is vital to have a positive mental attitude”.

Some parts of the news media take a lot of pride in the fact that they report the news in a balanced even handed way, trying to show both sides of an argument, but shouldn’t balanced news really mean to report 50% good news and 50% bad news? Is there really a shortage of good news to report? I would not have thought so.

The news focuses on bad news; as is the human way, it is not harder to focus on the good and positive, it is just the preferred way for the masses to focus on negative things in life.

So to reach our goals we must remain positive and control the influence of the negativity around us. We should not stick our heads in the sand and ignore the news altogether, but rather limit how much news and how much detailed news we expose ourselves to. Some successful people will not watch the news at all; they understand how harmful it can be to let too much negativity into your mind.

Set your goals and stay positive by limiting your exposure to anything negative.

 

The goal that you never set.

.


The goal that you never set, you will most likely never achieve. If you truly want something then you really must get serious about achieving it. Leaving things in the hands of fate, chance or luck, is to leave things in the hands of random chance, with the odds against you.

You actually hold every card when it comes to your good fortune and prosperity. At any time you can set a true goal for yourself and then get to work on attracting it towards you. As many have said “You are the captain of your own ship” “The maker of your own destiny”. If you say that you will do something and mean what you say. If you work daily towards reaching that goal, even though sometimes it may be hard to see any progress – yet each day again you keep on working towards your goals. If you are constant and persistent in a positive “can do it way” then the day will come when you will reach that goal, the day will come when you find yourself enjoying that achieved goal. The day will come when you can reflex with happiness and contentment in the fruits of your labours.
Some, in fact all too many, will never set the goals in life that they truly want and deserve. They finds life success a puzzle just too hard to work out, so they just give up instead. They give up on all that might have been; all that should have been and most importantly they give up on all that would have beenif only they had set the goal and pursued it.

 

Today

.
Ask yourself the question; what one thing could I do today, in order to move me towards my goal the most?

 

Will to win

.
With a will to win anything can be possible. Any obstacle can be overcome, any achievement can be reached.

A will to win is to have your mind set on a definite purpose and the desire and belief within yourself to achieve it.

Noah certainly knew a thing or two when he built the ark.

.
First he did not follow the crowd or listen to them and he was not deterred by them.

He did not expect everyday to be bright and sunny and think that nothing could ever change.

Noah understood that change would one day come; he took action and prepared for the event.

 

Goal attraction over a lifetime

.


Let’s think back to pur childhood and those that we went to school with. Some would not have known back then what they wanted to do when they left school if you had asked them. Some may have had a rough idea and a few would have been one hundred percent certain of what they wanted to do, be or have in the coming years ahead.

Think about how that pans out in the years ahead of them, the don’t knows must have embarked on a more or less random journey of discovery – which many would find to be interesting. The rough idea persons would of gone in a general direction and may well have been distracted along the way to something else; again random. The last group, the one hundred percent certain people, providing that they remained one hundred percent certain over the preceding years, would in nearly all cases achieved what they set out to achieve. So many times when you read a biography of a successful person or see them in an interview, you will hear them say something along the lines of “ I have always wanted to do this” “it my dream come true” “ I knew I would do it in the end” or a whole host of similar statements.

Why bring this up? Some have dreams right from childhood and they eventually live them out if they remain true to their dream. Many others will find their dream as they journey on in life; age is not important to a dream, but of those without any dream or goal, their live will be on a random course, no matter how their lives actually feel to them. They are in the hands of fate and nothing else.

Anyone can dream, anyone can set a new dream and bring it to life. To do this, is to visualise and manifest. It is a skill that does not belong to a certain few. We all can do it. It will take daily practise, for it does anyway even to those that have always known what they have wanted from an early age.

Think what do you really what, then take that dream and turn it into a goal.

 

Goal setting and James Allen

.

James Allen wrote around twenty books, every one of his books that I have read I have always found to be excellent, with a profound understanding of the human condition and the effects of thoughts, actions and thinking on a person’s life.

He passed away around one hundred years ago, but his writings still live on. His most famous book was “As a man thinkieth”

“As a physically weak man can make himself strong by careful and patient training,
so the man of weak thoughts can make them strong by exercising himself in right thinking”.
– James Allen

James Allen does not write about goal setting as such, instead he explains that we must take control of our minds and exercise them as you would any muscle. If we neglect our bodies them they will not serve us well, and the mind is the same. In both these examples they will produce results in our lives.

“Dream lofty dreams, and as you dream, so shall you become.
Your vision is the promise of what you shall one day be. Your ideal is the prophecy of what you shall at last unveil”.
– James Allen

James Allen fully understood the power of thought and using visualisation, he understood that our thoughts and visions will become our future.

 

Default or subconscious goal setting

.
What do I mean by default or subconscious goal setting, if you set a main goal and plan to pursue it, but then think about or wish for some other or many other different conflicting things, then you will find it very hard to attract or main goal or you will miss it altogether.

As many have said all through history –“you will become what you think about”. It will be our dominant thoughts that will ultimately attract most of the things to us in life; so guard your thoughts well. Make every effort to be the master of your own mind. Do not let passing whims or fancies grow unchecked out of control and in the process set you a new agenda in life. Because when we do not take total control of our minds, that is when we start to end up with the results of default or subconscious goal setting in our lives. We will become what we think about.

Set yourself a goal or goals, then work to keep them amongst your dominant thoughts. So many times I write about goal attraction methods and every goal attraction method has one thing in common, they are all about keeping your goal at a high level in your thoughts. Life will constantly throw distractions towards us and often we must take the time there and then to deal with them, but after that you must have a method or methods to bring your goals back to mind, calmly and with expectation.
Default or subconscious goal setting can be avoided with good goal attraction methods; get the results that you truly want and desire by keeping your goal dominant in your thoughts; if you do not, then the distractions of the day will take them away.

Beware of default or subconscious goal setting.

 

Goal attraction plan.

Drawing up a goal attraction plan.

• Start with a vision of your future history.
• Find people that have done it before. (past and present)
• Read up on your subject or go on a course
• Steps or chunks. Order and priority of action.

In order to reach your goal, many will tell that you will need a plan, but this is only partly true. If you are seeking a medium to big goal, then it may not be possible at the outset to plan everything related to reaching your goal. On the journey to reaching any medium to large goal there will be for certain many unforeseeable twist and turns along the way.

So yes a plan would help, but it will need to be a flexible plan. First start off by clearly understanding your goal and building a clear mental picture of it, seeing it in every detail just how you want it to turn out; some call this a future history.

Do all the research that you can. Find people that have done it before in the past and learn from their example. Often for the price of a paperback book you can gain a person’s whole lifetime worth of experience, yet many will tell you that they do not have the time to read a book, but not to do so may well waist even more of your time as well as your money and hard efforts. Read up on your subject, get the training if you need to do so; be as ready as you can be to attract your goal.

Take one step at a time towards your goal. Starting from step one, be efficient, but beware of too many short cuts. Work out the steps that will be needed to reach your goal, then plan and work on only one step at a time; in that way you can be flexible in your approach and alter it as you need to.
