I am sitting here, looking out the window, its dark, some snow and generally cold outside, wondering…
How many people out there is still following their goals for this new year, 2011, its a bright and shiny new year with endless possiblities. Are you following your goals? Is it about health? Money? Most people choose one of those categories while setting their goals. It is because we all want to be healty and financial free. But what does that mean to you? What are your goals?
I have only set myself up for one goal this year. It is a goal that I have heard many people say and write that is good for you. In the book Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, from seminar recordings of Brendon Burchard, Jim Rohns tapes(May he be loved and remembered.)… The goal is to read one book a week, thats a total of 52 books in a normal year. Can I do it? Yes. Do I have the time, yes! Do I have the motivation to do it? Thats another story. I planned it well, travelling on my christmas gift trip from my girlfriend to London I picked up a lot of books, about 13 or so for only 50 pounds, thats almost as much as 1,5 book costs in Norway where I live. So I will have enough reading material for the next 13 weeks.
I started out great, january the 2. I turned the first page of Paul McKenna´s book “Change your life in 7 DAYS”. Inspiring good book, well written, and I have read about 80 pages of a total of 250 or so. Whats got my attention was the DVD and the CD following the book. On the DVD it contains some small videos of what you are going throught in every chapter, its more alive than usual books. And on the CD you get a 30 minute hypnosis, where you are going to relax and set yourself up for a great day. I have listen to it a couple of times. The first time I got to sleep, a deep sleep and it was really good, but I didnt really get all that was going on. Because he is trying to get into your unconsios(did I spell that right?) with messages that will get your brain moving. But he states that you arent going to get it all with you anyway, so I suppose I have done it all right. Its an inspiring book, and I recommend you to go and get it.
Other things I spend my time on is a course by Bob Proctor, Six Minutes to Success. Its a series of short videos with him talking about concepts that can be done in about six minutes. It follows some of the principals of the good, old and fantastic book of Napoleon Hill, Think and grow rich. I wont reveal it all to you but he uses some of Hills tactics so it isnt his so I can restate them here:
Day 1: Write down a goal that you will achive in the next 90 days. Specific.
Day 2: Sort out in your mind: What inspires you? What do you really want? And what don´t you like?
Day 3: How much money do you want? Write down a specific number, like $25000 (That was what Bob wrote down the first time he did the exercise)
Day 4: What are you going to give to get the amount of money you desire?
Day 5: Decide the amount of time that it will take for you to get the specific amount of money you desired in step 3.
Day 6: Get up and get going. Start on step 4. What are you going to get you started doing it? Just do anything, right now!
Day 7: This is just the step that wraps up all the other steps, lay out your whole plan on how you will attract the money into your life.
Its a pretty basic exercise everyday. But how many will do it? Dont you belive it work? Is that a reason not to try it? I think I will get it a try, are you with me?
Thats my thoughts of this late night evening, its like my attention right now, a little here and a little there. But I hope you get some good use of this post.
