How To Goal Set
If you’ve read my book, The Unemployed Millionaire, you may remember reading the chapter on how to goal set titled, Goal Setting is For Losers. The premise behind that chapter (aside from me being a contrarian) is that the way most people look at how to goal set, simply doesn’t work.
If you’ve set goal after goal and not gotten the result you want, take a look at this video on how to goal set where I outline the process I go through each year.
How to Goal Set – Characteristics
- Your goal must be specific
- Your goal must have a deadline
- Your goal must be written down
- You must look at your goal daily
- You must have a purpose behind your goal
- You must create an action plan to achieve your goal
A strong point I didn’t cover in the video is one of the biggest issue as to why the traditional “how to goal set” method can set you up for failure.
When you study subconscious programming, you’ll see that every word and every thought is a deposit into your subconscious mind. Your subconscious, based on the deposits you’ve made, create your belief and your identity system.
When you read your goal as “my goal is to be a millionaire”; that presupposes in your mind that you are NOT a millionaire. Thus, creating a negative deposit into your subconscious.
Here’s my recommendation…
When you’re writing out your goals and the purpose for your goals, write them in the affirmative as if they’re already true. An example of my purpose for several goals I have set for myself is “I’m inspiring millions of people on a yearly basis!”
Never underestimate how powerful your words and thoughts are. Always be mindful of speaking into existence that which you desire, as if it were already true.
Categories For Your Goal Setting
These are just a few examples of the categories I set goals for:
- Health & Fitness
- Personal & Spiritual
- Relationship & Family
- Learning & Growth
