Goal Setting and How You can Guarantee Success
We all know how important it is to have goals? But what is it that separates success and failure when endeavoring to achieve your goals? If I'm to point to one specific thing that can surely sabotage your goal success it's ambiguity. It's a lack of being specific. It's that vague pale definition that doesn't even sound believable when you say it.
For example, "I want to loose weight". It doesn't provide anything that I would deem able to stimulate passion, energy or excitement. It has no purpose, direction or timetable attached to it. It's destined to fail. In fact, it was never really a goal in the first place, at best it was an ambiguous statement.
Goal setting is simple. Like anything, if you want to experience success, follow those that have been successful and copy them. Gary Ryan Blair aka " The Goals Guy " has a quick a simple method. All you have to do to properly plan your goals is to ask 3 questions.

The problem is the onus is on you to remember to review them. But is 1,2 or 3 times daily enough to make them happen. Is it often enough to engrain with certainty, your goal objectives will be met? If you're truly serious about your goals and achieving them, why would you even want to leave that to chance?
Why not put your daily goal review on autopilot. Imagine having your goals fed 1000's of times a day to your subconscious mind unobtrusively while all the while you're working, typing, playing or surfing on your computer.
If you want to have the most impact, you have to engage the other 5/6ths of your brain (your subconscious) to work harmoniously with your conscious will (1/6th of your brain power). If you want the power to engrain your goals and objectives into your subconscious.......
