A Goal Setting Fatal Mistake, and how to Prevent it.

Practitioners of “The Secret”, along with plenty of other smart people know how important it is to keep our focus on the positive.

Keeping our focus on the positive rather than the negative, on what we do have rather than what we do not have is essential.

This is not just essential for some power of the universe, but it is essential for how we speak to our subconscious.

When our subconscious believes that we are winning, we do and when it believes that we are losing well that is true too.

Sometimes when we are setting our goals, we tend to let our focus touch on what we do not have while we look at what we want to do and have in the future.

Of course this does have the potential to sabotage our subconscious and screw up our focus on the universe.

Here is where those gratitude lists and journals that we talked about so many times last month come in.

Go review these lists and journals, direct your focus back to what a great deal you have already, the great people in your life, the great things you have, and the great things that you have accomplished.

And while you are at it take a look at the “Annual Review” exercise that we worked on this last week as well.

With this in mind, keep up the great job of goal writing that you all have been doing this month, keep it positive and I will too.

And look for a few more Goal Setting Reflections from me as we progress through December.



A few more you may be interested in.

Bob, I am a firm believer that out thoughts, words and deeds is what creates our reality.  We must be vigilant with our thoughts and redirect them when we realize we are not having positive ones

Good morning Bob.  I have the book, the movie and the audio CD'S.  I listen to them often and I can't tell you how many times I've seen the movie and re-read the book.

When we focus on the positive with a good attitude, we come across that way to people. And that helps us in our quest to attain our goals because our business is people oriented. Any time we appear hesitant or unsure of ourselves, people spot it right away and that's a super negative.

Attitude is king with me and effort is next. I enjoy being around people that are upbeat and positive and that have a good outlook on life. Merry Christmas.

You've got to accent the positive - eliminate the negative and proceed to set those goals in a way that will help you to improve.
