“The truth of the matter is that there’s nothing you can’t accomplish if: (1) You clearly decide what it is that you’re absolutely committed to achieving, (2) You’re willing to take massive action, (3) You notice what’s working or not, and (4) You continue to change your approach until you achieve what you want, using whatever life gives you along the way.” Anthony Robbins

2011 has come to an end  and now it is the beginning of 2012, how did  2011 go for you?   What did you achieve?   This is a great time to sit down and write down the things that you were going to do and matching that to what you really did do.   What did you do?

What lessons did you learn from the past year?   What will you do differently in the coming year?

It is time to program your mind for success.   It is time to write down goals for this year and put them in a place where you can see them on a daily basis.   Ideally they would be tacked to something you are going to view daily.    Read the goals daily and ask yourself what are you doing to bring you closer to achieving those goals.

Make achievement a practice and then practice achievement on a daily basis.   There are plenty of people who are resisting improving their life don’t be one of them.   If the TV is on turn it off.   Create a new habit that supports your goals.

I have a goal … do you?

Some people leaving a lasting legacy, some people encourage others to take a step that is bigger and more bold than they thought they could.   Some people make a difference in the lives of others.

Jim Rohn has been called such a man, a man who helped others reach further than they could have imagined.   So, what follows is an excerpt of some of Jim’s words.   Read them and then set a goal, a goal that will fuel you to greater success, wisdom and happiness.

Take charge of your life – leave a legacy – shape the world – you can!

— Now read the words of Jim Rohn —

The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.

When Andrew Carnegie died, they discovered a sheet of paper upon which he had written one of the major goals of his life: to spend the first half of his life accumulating money and to spend the last half of his life giving it all away. And he did!

Some people are disturbed by those tough days because all they have is the days. They haven’t designed or described or defined the future.

Goals. There’s no telling what you can do when you get inspired by them. There’s no telling what you can do when you believe in them. And there’s no telling what will happen when you act upon them.

We all need lots of powerful long-range goals to help us past the short-term obstacles.

The ultimate reason for setting goals is to entice you to become the person it takes to achieve them.

Don’t set your goals too low. If you don’t need much, you won’t become much.

If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us.

We all have two choices: We can make a living or we can design a life.

Reach for the sky

Seek new heights.   Seek goals greater than you would think possible.  

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”  Michelangelo

Take time to imagine what your ideal goal that you are seeking is.   What does reaching that goal look like?   Break that goal into smaller objectives each just slightly out of reach.   What will it take to reach that first objective?   Now work on that first objective.

Celebrate those small steps just like you would cheer for a child taking their first steps.  Our small steps to a larger goal are no less significant than taking our first steps in life.  

Think “I can” and ‘you will”.
