Use Your Daily Goals to Help Develop a Success Mindset

What is your goal in life?

For some it is to get into shape. For some it is to get rich. For others, it is to see the world.

Now what is your daily goal?

This is a very different concept but actually the daily goal is far more important than the overarching goal – at least if you really want to achieve the things that you’re dreaming of. And why is that?

Goals Are Often too Vague

The big issue is that for many of us, our goals are much too broad and much too vague. Even if you have a ‘specific target’ like losing 5 stone in a year, this is still much too broad and vague.

Losing that amount of weight is not entirely within your control. There’s lots you can do to increase or decrease your chances of success and of course you’re mostly responsible… but there are other factors at play here too like your health and like your metabolism.

What’s more, is that having a goal that is that far away can actually make it all too easy to cheat. You know you have a year to lose the weight, so what does it matter if you eat a bit of cake today?

And it makes it easy to get disheartened too – when you get 6 months in and realize that you’re actually heavier than you were before.

Daily Goals Fix All That

But daily goals fix all that. Start with a vision – a very abstract vision of what you want – and then break that down into the smallest possible steps that you can execute every day or every week.

In the case of losing weight, your goal might be to eat no more than 1,800 calories a day, or to go for at least a 10 minute run every day. That’s a small goal but it’s perfect for sticking to because it is completely within your control.

If you don’t manage to run just that little bit, then you only have yourself to blame. There are no excuses to be made – it’s pass or fail. But at least tomorrow you can try again.

And guess what? If you keep accomplishing those smaller daily goals, they eventually add up. Eventually, you manage that big goal.

And the same goes for every other type of objective too. The best way to earn money is to build a business a little every day. And the best way to write a novel, is to write a page every night!

The Positive Habits of Successful People

What do positive people have in common? Lots of things. And in fact, if you look at the most successful people across every different discipline, you’ll often find that they have more in common than they have differences. Top athletes have a lot more in common with top CEOs than you might expect and the same can be said for artists too.

And when we recognize these habits, we can often break them down and work backward to discover some of the most important traits and habits we need to adopt in order to join them. Here are some of those positive habits…

Self Development

On his podcast, author Tim Ferriss interviews some of the most successful people in the world ranging from actors, to singers, to athletes to programmers. One of the things that almost all of them surprisingly have in common is that they start their day with meditation. And of course a lot of them exercise too.

What does this tell us? It tells us that the successful mindset involves being willing to work on yourself and get better. When you do that, you have no limitations and you can keep on getting stronger and better!

Following a Passion

Another thing that you’ll find without exception when speaking with successful people is that they have one singular passion that they follow in every single aspect of their lives. You’ll be able to tell because they will start talking about it right away and their eyes will light up!

It makes sense too – because when we have a real passion, it gives us the drive, focus and determination to work harder and smarter than everyone else.

Breaking the Mold

Something else that all of the most successful people in the world share is the willingness to break the mold – to walk the path less trodden. This is how they discover opportunities that others miss but it’s also fundamentally what made them able to question their life’s path in the first place. Arnold Schwarzenegger was certainly unique for deciding he wanted to become a bodybuilder (he came from a small village in Austria). He certainly raised eyebrows when he moved to America. But he had the courage to know what he wanted and to go after it – even if it was a bit unusual.

Don’t be afraid to be you and to go the way you want to go. Rules are there to be broken – that’s why they’re called breakthroughs!

The Basics Of Being Grateful

The practice of being thankful for the things you have, both big & small is an important skill to master. The more you appreciate the things you do have, the more things you will receive. This does not just mean material items.

Being grateful focuses your thought processes on what you have, not what you think is missing in your life. The more you focus on that, the happier you will be. Have you ever noticed people who are truly happy are also thankful for what they have? Gratefulness strengthens relationships, reduces stress & improves our overall health.

Every Thought

Psychological and behavioral research has shown the most amazing improvements in life brought by the practice of gratitude. Being thankful and appreciating life and the
things life offers makes us more resilient and even happier.

Being resilient means that no matter what challenges we face in our lives, we will handle them. Our attitude towards challenges can determine how well we deal with the occasional “bump in the road.” No one’s life is always smooth but focusing on the good things will help the bumps smooth out. These are temporary, that is why they are called bumps.

By looking at the good things we have in our lives & feeling thankful & grateful for those things can improve you health, relationships & bring more of those things into your life!

The Right Frame Of Mind

Getting A Wealth Mindset

Wealth and financial freedom are a far-off dream for many people. For them, it means mansions, gated communities, a fast car, private parties or a pool.

The truly wealthy have family names like Rockefeller or Morgan. It can be easy to accumulate wealth. The thing is, not everyone knows how. The twentieth century has bought a boom of first-time millionaires, many of which do not come from family money.

They make their first million by employing timeless wealth wisdom and secrets only the ultra rich used to know. Fortunately for you, there are dozens, even hundreds of little wealth nuggets you can easily apply to your life to expand your portfolio and double, even triple your net worth.

Being smart with money and becoming wealthy is not rocket science, but for many it looks and feels like hard work. The funny thing is, the fact of it’s very simplicity means that more and more people should know and be doing this. But they are not.

This is because most people do not know how to make money work for them, not the other way around. This is also because making money involves patience and restraint. Everything about our culture advocates otherwise. But do you want to end up broke by the time you retire? Do you constantly fend off phone calls from creditors? Do you sigh and shake your head at your bank balance? No one wants to spend their life waiting for payday and watching money flutter away the moment bills come in the mail.

Creating the Wealth Mindset

The wealthy think differently. This is true and an inescapable fact. The other thing is that there is a poor mindset and a wealthy one.

The rich have a different approach to life. They plan, risk and manage their money in a different manner. They also have a positive attitude towards life and opportunities.

The first and most important step to true financial freedom is creating this mindset for yourself.  This also involves a no-holds barred, honest look at your life and assets.

Creating a starting place is as important as moving forward, so it does not matter if you start with $1 or $1,000,000. It is all about the mindset and the will to move forward to creating your wealth.

Reaching Your Goals

To reach one goal, you have to make smaller goals and reach them. Every little step you take, every penny you save matters. Use smaller goals as stepping stones. For example, to save that $500,000, one needs to set aside $5000 every single month, invest or cut down expenses.

Manifest your financial destiny by setting your subconscious towards specific goals. Create dream charts by cutting out pictures of your dream status or words that empower to help fuel your subconscious and get you
to where you want to go. Never underestimate the power of your will and mind. Wealthy people never say they cannot do it, they think of ways so that they can.

Write it down. Seeing what you want, and getting what you want involves seeing it in black and white.

It is true what they say, you can achieve anything once you put your mind to it.

Deciding How Much You Need

It is important in life for a person to know exactly what it is that they wish to obtain or exactly what goals they would like to accomplish. The same goes for obtaining an abundance of finances. If you wander down the path of success blind and without aim you are sure to get lost.That is why it is important to have specific goals in place that will act as your guide while you take the journey towards success.

Before you make any decisions on exactly how much you need, it is advised that you read the following chapter because it contains valuable information that will greatly help you. Keep in mind, it is important to determine how much you need rather than how much you want.

When you are making a plan for financial success, it is important that you determine exactly how much finances you need to be pulling in. I do not mean a general ball park figure, I mean an exact number.

You can figure this number out by listing down all of your expenses as well as giving yourself some breathing room for unexpected situations that may occur. You need to picture yourself in the future, what do you see?

In order for you to accomplish what you see in this vision, it is important that you set financial goals because they will serve as your motivators. You may want to start with smaller goals as this will help you build your self-confidence in the long run and this will make the harder goals much easier.

Add Up The Bills:

The first and probably most important step to creating a financial abundance is to figure out what your monthly expenses are. It will be impossible to build wealth if you are spending more money on expenses than you are bringing in. No matter if you are a manager for a business or are self-employed, all expenses need to be accounted for, down to the paper clips and staples. This will help you determine if your current set of circumstances will benefit or hinder your journey to financial abundance.

Are You Earning Enough?

One question that you are going to ask yourself, whether you want to hear the answer or not, is am I making enough money? Although it may be hard, if you are not making enough money, you may have to give some things up in life for a short period of time. Even those who are not in financial strain should look over their daily lives and think of the things that they do not really need. You will be surprised by how much of a difference you can make by choosing to buy a 99 cent coffee in the morning rather than a $5.99 Starbucks coffee. If you analyze your current set of financial circumstances and come to the realization that you are not making enough money, it is definitely time to do something about it!

What Do You Need The Finances for?

Another important question you must ask yourself is, what do I plan on doing with my finances. Having a plan for what you will use your finances for will motivate you as well as set guidelines for what you purchase.

For instance, if you know that you have important business expenses coming up or maybe even a vacation to Hawaii, you will be more likely to be responsible with your spending which will lead to you creating a financial abundance. It is also very important to prioritize. You must take care of life’s essentials before worrying about having extravagant things like jet skis and sports cars.

It is also advised that you create a spreadsheet or some other type of visual reference to track your expenses and earnings. It is easy to forget about something that you cannot see so it is important that you keep this spreadsheet in a location where you will see it multiple times throughout the day.

The process of determining how much cash you need should not be taken lightly or rushed. It is a very serious step in the process of creating a financial abundance. Keep in mind these tips and begin practicing these methods and you should start to see improvements in no time.

Building Inner Strength

Unconsciously, we are forming habits every moment of our lives. Some are habits of a desirable nature; some are those of a most undesirable nature. Some, though not so bad in themselves, are exceedingly bad in their cumulative effects, and cause us at times much loss, much pain and anguish, while their opposites would, on the contrary, bring as much peace and joy, as well as a continually increasing power.

We have it within our power to determine at all times what types of habits shall take form in our lives? In other words, is habit-forming, character building, a matter of mere chance, or have we it within our own control? We have, entirely and absolutely. “I will be what I will to be,” can be said and should be said by every human soul.

After this has been bravely and determinedly said, and not only said, but fully inwardly realized, something yet remains. Something remains to be said regarding the great law underlying habit-forming, character building; for there is a simple, natural, and thoroughly scientific method that all should know.

A method whereby old, undesirable, earth-binding habits can be broken, and new, desirable, heaven lifting habits can be acquired, a method whereby life in part or in its totality can be changed, provided one is sufficiently in earnest to know and, knowing it, to apply the law.

Thought is the force underlying all. And what do we mean by this? Simply this: Your every act – every conscious act – is preceded by a thought. Your dominating thoughts determine your dominating actions. In the realm of our own minds we have absolute control, or we should have, and if at any time we have not, then there is a method by which we can gain control, and in the realm of the mind become thorough masters. In order to get to the very foundation of the matter, let us look to this for a moment. For if thought is always parent to our acts, habits, character, life, then it is first necessary that we know fully how to control our thoughts.

Here let us refer to that law of the mind which is the same as is the law in Connection with the reflex nerve system of the body, the law which says that whenever one does a certain thing in a certain way it is easier to do the same thing in the same way the next time, and still easier the next, and the next, and the next, until in time it comes to pass that no effort is required, or no effort worth speaking of; but on the opposite would require the effort.

The mind carries with it the power that perpetuates its own type of thought, the same as the body carries with it through the reflex nerve system the power which perpetuates and makes continually easier its own particular acts. Thus a simple effort to control one’s thoughts, a simple setting about it, even if at first failure is the result, and even if for a time failure seems to be about the only result, this will in time, bring him to the point of easy, full, and complete control.

Each one, can grow the power of determining, controlling his thought, the power of determining what types of thought he shall and what types he shall not entertain. Always keep this in mind, that every earnest effort along any line makes the end just a little easier for each succeeding effort, even if, apparent failure is the result of the earlier efforts. This is a case where even failure is success, for the failure is not in the effort, and every earnest effort adds an increment of power that will eventually accomplish the end aimed at. We can, then, gain the full and complete power of determining what character, what type of thoughts we entertain.

Here are some examples. There is a man, the cashier of a large mercantile establishment, or cashier of a bank. In his morning paper he reads of a man who has become suddenly rich, has made a fortune of half a million or a million dollars in a few hours through speculation on the stock market. Perhaps he has seen an account of another man who has done practically the same thing lately. He is not quite wise enough, however, to comprehend the fact that when he reads of one or two cases of this kind he could find, were he to look into the matter carefully, one or two hundred cases of men who have lost all they had in the same way.

A negative thought can be put out of the mind easier and more successfully, not by dwelling upon it, but by throwing the mind on to some positive object. This may be, for example, the ideal of full and perfect self-mastery, or it may be something of a nature entirely distinct from the thought which presents itself, something to which the mind goes easily and naturally. This will in time become the absorbing thought in the mind, and the danger is past. This same course of action repeated will gradually grow the power of putting into the mind those objects of thought one most desires. The result will be that as time passes the negative thoughts will present itself less and less, and when it does present itself it can be put out of the mind more easily each succeeding time, until the time comes when it can be put out without difficulty, and eventually the time will come when the thought will enter the mind no more at all.

There is nothing more true in connection with human life than that we grow into the likeness of those things we contemplate. Literally and scientifically and necessarily true is it that “as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” The “is” part is his character. His character is the sum total of his habits. His habits have been formed by· his conscious acts; but every conscious act is, as we have found, preceded by a thought. And so we have it – thought on the one hand, character, life, and destiny on the other. And simple it becomes when we bear in mind that it is simply the thought of the present moment, and the next moment when it is upon us, and then the next, and so on through all time.

One can in this way attain to whatever ideals he would attain to. Two steps are necessary: first, as the days pass, to form one’s ideals; and second, to follow them continually, whatever may arise, wherever they may lead him. Always remember that the great and strong character is the one who is ever ready to sacrifice the present pleasure for the future good.

In this, however, we will find the highest pleasure, for in this the only real pleasure lies. He who would find it by any short cuts, or by entering upon any other paths, will inevitably find that his last state is always worse than his first; and if he proceed upon paths other than these he will find that he will never find real and lasting pleasure at all.

Each of us must work out his own problems. Each must grow the insight that will enable him to see what the causes are that have brought the unfavorable conditions into his life; each must grow the strength that will enable him to face these conditions, and to set into operation forces that will bring about a different set of conditions.

We might help one another by way of suggestion, by way of bringing to one another a knowledge of certain higher laws and forces — laws and forces that will make it easier to do that which we want to do. The doing, however, must be done by each one for himself. And so the way to get out of any conditioning we have got into, either knowingly or inadvertently, is to take time to look the conditions squarely in the face, and to find the law whereby they have come about. And when we have discovered the law, the thing to do is not to rebel against it, not to resist it, but to go with it by working in harmony with it.

A Better Life

 

“In the end, it is not the years in your life that counts – it is the life in your years.”
~ Abraham Lincoln

There are several things you have to do and changes you have to go through in order to have a better life. After all, having a life that you can be proud of, no matter the length, is more than enough of an accomplishment. These tips though, may sound so common and normal that you will be saying to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

The sad thing is that despite their being “common and normal” many people tend to forget them, or worse, simply ignore them. Simple as the following tips are, they are powerful enough to make both little and huge changes that can have an impact in your life.

1. Know what you want to do with your life. What do you want to achieve in your life? Do you want to be financially stable? Do you want to have a happy family? Do you want a mansion and a sports car? Whatever it is, knowing what you want in life is crucial. This is because long-term goals give your life direction and meaning, as well as provides you with the needed motivation to work diligently and industriously.

2. Know how much you don’t know. Acknowledge the fact that you do not know everything. Acknowledging this will fuel your desire to learn more. When you have that desire, you will find that as you learn, you become a little better every single day.

3. Clean the clutter in your home. Having a clean abode helps to make your life easier. For one, you will find that you a have a more relaxing home to come to after a hard day’s work.

4. Clean the clutter in your mind. When you have a clean home, you should strive to make your mind clutter free as well. This means that you have to learn to focus on the important things and do away with the less important ones. Once you do this, you will immediately feel less burdened by troublesome thoughts.

5. Share the love with others. Volunteer for your local community’s soup kitchen or maybe help in the clean up drive, or maybe you can read for kids in the local library. This is one way of doing something good for others, your community, and yourself. Helping others gives one a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment that is rarely found in other things.

6. When you reminisce about your life, think about the good things. Of course, you can think about the negative things too, but only to serve as your motivation to do and become better. Remember all the good you have done no matter how simple and unimportant they may seem, like picking up trash along the way home or maybe helping an old lady cross the street. When it comes to doing good, even the smallest of things count.

7. Don’t try to do too much at once. Life can be very hectic nowadays as you juggle work with home and so on. Sure, you may think that you will be able to accomplish more by doing several things at once, but such is not always the case. Take things one at a time – remember, the only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time.

8. Reward yourself. When you know you did something worthwhile today, give yourself a gift. Rewards need not be something expensive, but even simple things that you enjoy like a hot cup of coffee at the coffee shop. It is not the price after all, but rather the feeling of achievement and fulfillment that resulted in the reward.

9. Strive to make today better than yesterday. If helping one old lady cross the street yesterday made you feel good about yourself, how would helping two old ladies today make you feel? See, the more good you do, the better you will feel about yourself.

10. Don’t forget that the focus is you. Helping others is necessary in order to become a better person, but do remember that if helping and pleasing everybody is becoming stressful, then maybe it is time to take a little step backwards. Remember that you cannot please every single person you come across with.

11. Be adventurous and take a risk. This is a necessary part of life, as it means that you should try to get out of your comfort zone from time to time. This widens your horizon and makes you more open-minded. Think of it as a way of opening yourself up to new and better opportunities.

12. Do something you truly enjoy. If you have been thinking about doing something for a long time (like starting a new hobby) but have been caught up in work and life, then try to make time for it. Reorganize your schedule and make plans – now. It provides a wonderful distraction from all the hustle and bustle of life.

13. Find inspiration. Inspiration is necessary to keep you going. Without it, your motivation will wane and you will end up back in square one. Some people find inspiration from the bible, while others find inspiration in characters they find in nonfiction novels and biographies or autobiographies. Some people even find inspiration from fictional characters in fiction novels.

14. If you believe that you are not seeing any improvement, then seeking professional help may be necessary. Alternatively, sometimes, joining an anonymous club is a good way of finding help and fulfillment. It allows you to connect to people who knows and experienced what you are going through.

15. Don’t waste money on comfort items. Don’t buy unnecessary material things in order to make yourself feel good. Instead, focus your attention and money to building a hobby. This way, you can save yourself from building a collection of needless clutter. Besides, the comforting effects of these items wane off quickly, making you feel regretful soon after.

Taking care of your self is an important factor in having a wonderful life. Every single day, we find ourselves in situations that are emotionally and consequently mentally straining and draining, be it stress from the workplace or home. Worse, you can find yourself wallowing in depression, which does not in any way contribute to you achieving that kind of life that you want. As such, it is important that you pay close attention to your emotional health, since not doing so only sets you back and causes a myriad of problems.

How Your Emotions Determine Your Riches?

So you want to be rich, but how well are you doing at achieving your goal? You may be surprised to learn that your own emotions are what are either holding you back or creating the riches you desire. Let’s explain further.

According to hundreds of others who have created success and become rich, you must make your sure that your desires are clearly stated. You should also make sure to write down your desires. In addition to determining your desires, you need to have the persistence to carry out the instructions to achieve your desires.

Remember, your subconscious mind is always functioning even when you make no effort to influence it. If you want to benefit your subconscious mind, you need to make sure you are feeding it positive emotions and not negative ones. If thoughts of fear or poverty enter your subconscious that’s the life you going to live. You are the master of your impulses and you must learn to feed them the desired food to ensure you get the desired results.

Your subconscious is never idle. If you don’t take the time to send your desires to your subconscious, it will feed on the negative thoughts that go through your mind. Both negative and positive impulses will reach your mind and create your destiny.

By using your controlled imagination you can create plans and focus on purpose that will lead you to success. Everything that we do starts with an impulse. Humankind creates nothing that does not begin with a thought. When you add in the imagination, you can train your subconscious to create the success you desire.

Be careful because the mind is easily influenced by impulses or any thought that is mixed with emotion or feeling. In fact, there is a great deal of research that would indicate the only thoughts that become actions are those that have emotion associated with them.

You are writing the script and the audience is your subconscious. The response of your audience will depend on the emotional message you deliver and how you influence your subconscious audience. You need to speak the language it can understand.

There are seven positive emotions that are key to your subconscious. They are:
* Desire
* Faith
* Hope
* Love
* Sex
* Romance
* Enthusiasm

There are others but these are the most powerful if you want to see your desires become reality.
There are also seven negative emotions that you need to avoid. They are:
* Jealousy
* Fear
* Hatred
* Greed
* Revenge
* Superstition
* Anger

If you get caught up in these emotions, you will never reach your desires. You will never become rich. So how will you handle your emotions? Are you going to make it to rich?

Are You Dreaming Your Way to Riches?

From rags to riches – it happens more often than you might think. In fact, it could be you! Are you content with life as it is or do you find yourself dreaming your way to riches? If you answered yes, then you are definitely on the right track because without your imagination – without dreaming – you are not going to get there!

Have you ever wondered why some people with equal opportunities land up in such different places – one person is living in wealth with all the comforts of home, while the other person struggles to even pay their rent. Why the difference? It’s really quite simple, yet for far too many it remains a mystery – it’s all about what you are thinking.

If that sounds confusing, you aren’t alone! The trouble is we actually create our reality but what we are thinking and dreaming. Here’s a question. When you are talking with friends or family, how do you describe yourself? Your life? Are you always talking about how you struggle? Are you saying things like “I was never meant to be rich?” or are you talking about how successful you are how great life is how you have so much abundance. Which describes you? If you are the latter, you are in great shape. However, if you are the person who sees yourself as struggling, that’s exactly where you will stay.

We all have ideas from our childhoods implanted deep into our subconscious and if you want to change your future, you need to reprogram your subconscious. You need to see yourself as wealthy, having all that you desire, creating the riches that will fulfill your dreams.

Every thought that makes its way to your subconscious through any one of your senses is recorded and filed in your brain. You can voluntarily implant any thought you would like into your mind and your subconscious will act on it. Your subconscious will dominate your desires and it will direct you. You have complete control over your subconscious mind and so you set yourself up for failure or success – for living the life of a poor person or the life of a rich person.

You simply need the stimuli to influence your subconscious mind to go in the direction you desire. You simply need to imprint your desires in your mind and then have the faith that your desires will become your reality. So start dreaming big today and tomorrow you can enjoy the riches.
