HOW TO GO FROM POINT A TO POINT B
It’s been found that you are more likely to achieve a goal if you write it down in a clear and specific manner.
I discovered this technique in my 30’s, after wasting most of my life fooling around at parties and “finding out what life’s all about”.
Everybody I knew was long grown up and I still haven’t achieved anything with my life, and I knew it was time to step up.
Luckily, I found a mentor that took a liking to me and taught me his “secret” to being successful.
The secret was… to write down your goals.
I would write down my goals as specific as possible and I would recite them daily.
Once when I woke up and once before I hit the sack.
My goals were burned into the back of my mind.
I want you to imagine for a second that you’re the captain of a ship.
The helmsman( the guy steering the ship) looks at you and the talk goes something like this…
Helmsman: Where to, captain?
Captain: Umm.. somewhere nice?
Helmsman: Uhh.. where’s that?
Captain: Well…. I’d like to find some treasure, maybe… so why don’t you head over there…
I could keep the conversation going but you get my point.
To get somewhere, you have to know WHERE it is.
That means specific goals.
If you want to ‘lose weight’, you need to write down ‘get to 10% body fat in 12 months’.
