3 Ways to Reach Your Goals

During National Brain Week in March 12-16, I listened to John Assaraf’s Brainathon. He and the others who shared their videos that week enlightened me in many ways. Here’s a link to download John Assaraf’s Blueprint for achieving his goals. Don’t use his Blueprint word for word. Make it meaningful to you. Personalize it to help you meet your goals. 

I learned years ago that you should write down or print out your goals and dreams and put them in a frame on a wall. This will help you achieve them. This has definitely worked on many of my goals. However, there are a few dreams of mine that have been elusive. I haven’t achieved them yet. If you are like me and haven’t met all of your goals yet, revisit the wording of your goals and make sure you still want to achieve them.

There were three points that Assaraf suggested that I believe will help you reach all of your goals, especially those difficult ones that elude your grasp. I believe these ideas will help you reach your goals: 

  1. Read over your goals. Meditate on them every morning. Pray to God and thank him for helping you achieve your goals. 

  2. Take action toward one of your goals every morning after you read them.

  3. At night before going to sleep, give thanks to God for all the experiences of your day.

Set goals to meet all of your needs. If all of the needs are crying out to you. Choose 3 to focus on at first. Then when you calm down, after a few days. Add one more goal if you feel comfortable.

Stubborn goals that you may not completely believe may have to be coaxed a little. The way to persuade your subconscious mind is to  repeat your goals out loud and state these beliefs for 21 days  It may take longer. However, your subconscious mind will stop fighting it and it will finally say, “Okay. All right. Okay. So you can really do this.”

Then it will find a way to make this goal happen for you.

Human needs:

  1. Spiritual
  2. Physical
  3. Social
  4. Emotional
  5. Financial
  6. Mental – Be sure to include an educational goal, something that stretches your mind a little.
  7. Fun – What is fun for you might meet more than an emotional need. It can be a combination benefit – serve to meet two or more needs at one time.

Thank you for reading my blog. I’d love to hear from you. If you need help wording your goals, I’ll be glad to help you with one.
