CATCH UP WITH YOURSELF
Now's time to evaluate your life and your desires. Go ahead and test yourself - nobody's looking. Try to find out what your inner desires really are. Once you know, you can formulate a plan of action, and then achieve your goals.
Right now, write down three things you want. Don't spend time thinking about them - just write them down. You may be surprised at what you want. Can you see any relation to types of desires most sought for?
What accomplishment are you most proud of? What make you happy enough to be content, to feel totally relaxed, and to slide back with a smile on your face.
Without dwelling on failures, mistakes, or past ill feelings, quickly list important accomplishments or your life. Think about places you went to, relationships you encountered, education you received. Consider your job changes and positions, and achievements related to work.
Put a star next to most important accomplishments of your life. Is there any correlation with list of three things you want most?
Before you go any further with your life, make a list for your future. Write it down - don't just think it. What would you like to accomplish in next ten years? A new house, a high-paying position, a home in a new city, a trip around world?
Break that list down into those things you'd like to accomplish in next five years. Then make one further division into next six months. What can you do in next few months to further you towards your long-term goals?
My most important desires are:
In my lifetime, most important things I've accomplished:
If I looked back on my lifetime in 20 years, I'd like to have accomplished:
Within 10 years, I'd like to achieve:
Within 5 years, I'd like to achieve:
In next six months to a year, these are things I'm going to do to work towards by goals:
Regardless of your family commitments or your personal relationships; regardless of your business enterprises or any false sense of achievement, what do you really want?
Give yourself credit for your past accomplishments, and give yourself credit for your future achievements. You can and will attain all your goals, both long-term and short-term if you approach them in a step-by-step fashion and if you believe that they are worthwhile for you.
YOU ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN YOUR LIFE
Although you can be considerate of your environment and all people in it, first consider yourself. Your well-being, your happiness, your success. Make a pact with yourself right now that you will achieve your goals. And make them realistic to reach. Then one by one, make your own life success it deserves.
FIRST STEP - RELAX
An important step in achieving goals is to be able to relax. You'll get nowhere is your body and mind are nervous and jumping from one place or idea to another. In order to focus on your goal you must center your being.
