Category — Goals Success
There is no purer form of success, no more exact and demanding test of what you are capable of, than to achieve a desirable outcome.
Although the definition of success varies for each individual, the fundamentals for achieving a goal are always the same.
It is a process that begins with decisiveness, proceeds to focus, advances to action, then carries on with persistence and follow-through before ending in victory.
There is no other way!
Goal setting takes your life and gives it direction as it helps you to determine the answers to 6 important questions:

Here are some random thoughts on goals and goal setting. I hope you can use them to inspire you to set and attain your goals this year.
* You seldom hit anything unless you shoot at it.
* It is useless to carry the ball until you know where the goal line is located.
* There is no sense aiming for a goal when you have no arrow in your bow.
* If you don’t plan your future, someone else will.
* Failure is not missing the goal. Failure is aiming too low.

It surprises a lot of people to learn that 95% of all thought is at the subconscious level. This is a good thing. Do you know what you would do if your subconscious decided to take the day off?
Chances are that you would lie in bed all day long staring at those little dangly things at the end of your feet. Sometime in the evening, you would proudly exclaim, “Ohhhh! I remember! Those are my toes!” and then it would be time for bed.

When I was invited to speak to 120 high school teenagers and share with them the basic principles of Treasure mapping, Vision boards, effective goal setting and understanding the law of attraction, I must admit I was a little anxious.
How would I get the message across succinctly, clearly and powerfully? What was the best way to to inspire, motivate and activate these young adults, to set goals, understand and believe they can achieve their dreams?
After careful consideration, I decided, I could teach them through a powerful and simple 4 step formula:
1. Goal: Know what you want.

We have all heard the word “Accountability” used around goal setting, but why? Is it really that big of a deal? Can’t we just do it on our own?
Think back to all the goals you’ve ever made – from the simple ones to the large ones. Which goals were achieved and which weren’t? Make a list of at least ten goals you can think of, writing “MET” or “NOT MET” next to each one. This visual exercise may help you understand at least one of the reasons why the NOT MET goals were – well, not met.

For those interested in goal setting and how to realize your dream, there is plenty to learn from watching hockey players. So what makes watching hockey players compatible with realizing your own dreams?
There’s no question that the ultimate task of hockey players is to score enough goals to beat the opposing team. But, how is this accomplished?
First of all, you can’t even begin to win a game of hockey unless you first define your goal. In this sense, as I’ve said before, the ultimate goal is to score goals so you can beat the other opposing players. Having said that, does it automatically follow that players simply get on the ice and just shoot the puck? The answer is, no.

On a recent cross country flight I looked out over the Rocky Mountains from 30,000 feet and saw hundreds of paths sort of heading towards the summits of the various peaks.
I write “sort of” because looking at these zigzagging paths made it very clear why they are called switchbacks. Those switchbacks occupied my thinking for most of the rest of the flight to Oakland and have been on my mind often since.

For the last 20 years, I’ve consulted with or coached people in business, sports, the acting profession and the private sector. It is clear that there are 5 core attributes that remain the foundation for helping anyone reach their potential.
While many people tend to look at mastering mechanics, confidence, optimism and so on…the 5 Core Attributes are at the core of everything we do.
The 5 Core Attributes are:
1. A Burning Desire – Is your desire a mild desire, a hope, a wish or a burning desire to get what you want? It doesn’t matter what skill or experience level you are.
