It’s great to have all kinds of different goals. However, what is even nicer is to be able to design what all of them together would mean for you. Now create your ideal day. What people would be involved? What would you do? How would it begin? Where would you go? Where would you be? Do it from the time you get up to the time you go to sleep. What kind of environment would you be in? How would you feel when you climbed into bed at the end of a perfect day? Use pen and paper and describe it in detail. Remember all results, actions, and realities we experience start from creations in our minds, so create your day the way you desire it most.
Sometimes we forget that dreams begin at home. We forget that the first step toward success is providing ourselves with an atmosphere that nurtures our creativity that helps us be everything we can be.
Finally, design your perfect environment. Accentuate the sense of place and let your mind go. No limitations. Whatever you want is what you should put in. Remember to think like a king. Design an environment that would bring out the best of all that you are as a person. Where would you be — in the woods, in the ocean, in an office? What tools would you have – an art pad, paints, music, a computer, a telephone? What support people would you have around you to make sure you achieved and created all that you desired in your life?
If you don’t have a clear representation of what your ideal day would be, what are your chances of creating it? If you don’t know what your ideal environment would be, how would you create it? How are you going to hit a target if you don’t even know what it is? Remember, the brain needs clear, direct signals of what it wants to achieve. Your mind has the power to give you everything you want. But it can only do that if it’s getting clear, bright, intense, focused signals.
Thinking is the hardest work there is, which is the probable reason why so few engage in it
Doing the exercises in this article could be one of the most important steps you can take toward producing those unmistakable signals. You can’t reach your outcome if you don’t know what it is. Results are inevitable. If you don’t provide your mind with the programming of the results you desire, someone else will provide that programming for you. If you don’t have your own plan, someone else is going to make you fit into their plan. If all you do is read this article, you’ve wasted your time. It’s imperative that you take the time to do each of these exercises. They may not be easy at first, but believe me, they’re worth it; and as you begin to do them, they become more and more fun. One of the reasons most people don’t do well in life is because success is usually disguised behind hard work. And good setting, or outcome development, is hard work. It’s easy for people to put things like this off and get trapped into making a living instead of designing their lives. Exert your personal power now and take the time to discipline yourself to fully complete these exercises. It’s been said that there are only two pains in life, the pain of discipline or the pain of regret, and that discipline weighs ounces while regret weighs tons. There’s a great deal of excitement to be gained from applying these twelve principles. Do this for yourself.
Also, it’s important to review your outcomes on a regular basis. Sometimes we change, but our outcomes remain the same because we’ve never stopped to see if we still want to create the same things for our lives. Systematically update your outcomes every dew months, and then perhaps once a year or every six months in a systematic way. One very useful thing is to keep a journal, which will provide you with an ongoing record of your goals at any time in your life. Journals are great to review, to study your life has developed and how much you’ve grown. If your life is worth living, it’s worth recording.
Now you should do one final thing: make a list of the things you already have that were once goals – all the things in your ideal day you can already do, the activities and people of your life your life you are most grateful for the resources you already have available to you. I call this a gratitude diary. Sometimes people get so fixated on what they want, they fail to appreciate or use what they already have. The first step toward a goal is seeing what you have, giving thanks for it, and applying it to future achievements. We all have ways to make our lives better at any moment. Achieving your wildest dreams should begin today with the everyday steps that can out you on the right path. Action is eloquence. Begin today with eloquent action that will lead to even more eloquent outcomes.
