Success is……….

Success is exactly what you want.
Success is knowing why you want it.
Success is believing in yourself.
Success is to have a purpose and to set a goal to match that purpose.
Success is to take action without delay, each and every time that it is called for.
Success is to look and plan for your future and not to be chained to some negative part of the past.

Know what you want and why you want it. Think about it in a believing, expectant way, as if it were already here; never ever doubt in your ability to achieve it. Take action every time it is called for and success is sure to follow.

Success, some find hard to define, as it means different things to different people. Success can be large or small, what matters is to realise and work towards a worthy ideal, purpose or goal. To drift aimlessly is not successful living. Plan and design your life the way that you would want it to be.

Success is to realise that there are no real limits, other than those that we imagine and set for ourselves.
Success is to realise that human potential has an unlimited upside.
Success is to set your own limits.
Success is to live with purpose and in harmony with all.
Success is to live a life of challenges and not a life of problems. Challenges we can rise to, problem can’t beat us.

So think about your success and live a life of happiness and success

Happiness, purpose and goal setting

Happiness is the one thing that each and every one of us seeks. Very often in this pursuit of happiness, which ought to be easy to achieve, some get all wrong, instead of following worthy fulfilling pursuits, they follow short term, easy escapisms which ultimately lead to something less than true happiness.

Unfortunately some will spend their whole lives basically bored. They will clock watch through ever hour of every day and expect something of interest to arrive for them, yet they will do nothing to attract it.

Happiness is arrived at by having a purpose, usually in the form of a goal. This purpose may be even something day to day, like being the best at their line of work or striving to cook the ultimate sunday roast for the family. Or it may be a life purpose, to do, to have or to be something, and constantly working towards this end. Very often happiness is to have a mind occupied by a worthy pursuit or goal to work towards. If we know where we are going and have a direction in life then, then we are not beset by ongoing confusing problems, but instead we arrive at interesting challenges. These challenges we will always solve, whereas life’s losers are beaten by problems.

So decide on your purpose, then set the goal and in the pursuing of pursuing your goal you must always be positive and this will lead to being happy and fulfilled, even if the goal takes longer than planned to arrive.

Goal Setting; One Goal After Another

Goal setting needs to be an ongoing process. Sometimes it may feel like waiting forever to achieve a certain goal, but with action, persistence and determination you will eventually achieve it. The journey itself and having reached the goal is often the more exciting than the time after reaching your goal. We look forward to Christmas or a birthday and the presents that we will receive, we enjoy opening those presents, some days afterwards the joy of those has reduced somewhat. When we have reached one goal we should get to work on another goal, goal setting should be a continuous process; setting one goal after another. This makes life interesting, satisfying and fulfilling. Goal setting gives a person a direction in life; gives a person something to fill the mind with.

A directionless person is often a board person, they find it hard to get out of bed in the morning. When something happens which is unwanted, unexpected or challenging, it causes them even more confusion, worry and anxiety; how can they find their way forward if they do not know where they are going in the first place?

So use your goal setting and goal attraction well. Let it fill your mind and add to your quality of life, even if your goal is sometimes slow in arriving, stay happy and positive. Remember that goal setting needs to be an ongoing process, a way to enrich your life and the lives of those around you. Always remember to enjoy the journey, because it is the journey that really matters and on that journey be sure to grow as a person in skills, knowledge and character.



This wonderful world is full of abundance and is here for us all to enjoy. It belongs to no one, anymore than another.
Do not live your life always watching others win.

Choose all that you desire to have in life, not in a selfish, thoughtless way, but make your choices carefully and then pursue them honestly and intently. Turn those choices into goals and make those goals dominant in your thoughts. Then you will win all that you want and will not have to spend your life watching others win, while you do not.

“Abundance is not something we acquire. It is something we tune into.”
Wayne Dyer

“Expect your every need to be met. Expect the answer to every problem, expect abundance on every level.”
Eileen Caddy

Believe that you deserve it, believe that it is yours and then start to use goal attraction to reach it.

Many will watch others win out in life and get jealous and upset about this, instead of realizing that this world of abundance belongs to us all. Do not watch – join in and get all that you want and desire.


Goal setting August 2011

Here we are at the start of another new month. At the start of each month I encourage my thousands of readers to set and pursue a new goal or to carry on in the pursuit of an ongoing goal. So after reflecting on your recent progress, it is now time to look ahead with renewed energy. Know clearly in your mind what you want and have a strong clear mental picture of your goal. Regularly visit this mental image as often as you can, never doubt in that goal, instead calmly expect it. Do that for the next 31 days of this month, take action when at the right time and never delay. You may well be surprised by all that you could achieve in this month.

(Remember also to set some goals for your personal qualities e.g. conversation skills, self control, calmness or whatever may be helpful for you to master.)


Review your month, July 2011

As another month has ended, it is time to review the passing month, to think over the results of the month from a goal setting point of view and a personal point of view, but always to do this in a positive upbeat frame of mind.

Ask of yourself, what did I do well this month and what could I learn from this month and improve upon?

Ask yourself, what progress have I made towards my goals this month.

Ask yourself, how have I grown as a person this month.

Reflect on the best and happiest time of the passing month and be grateful for them. Maybe you can add a happy positive memory from this month to your store of good time memories which we should all have and build upon.

Think about how you have interacted with others this month; look for the best example and one to improve upon.

After some reflection on this month ending today, start to give some thought to your plans for next month. More on that tomorrow.
