The Subconscious Mind Never Sleeps
Its always listening
So you've finally got yourself together and wrote down some goals? Well done, because you are well on your way to the brilliant zone. Before we move any further, I would just like to state how important it is to manage your money in this world. In fact its extremely important The last words that my father ever spoke to me, before he passed on were "Son, with out money in this world your nothing, if you have money no one tells you what to do, and if you don't have it," well I think you know the rest don't you. So in order to be in control of your life you need to control your finances. If money is tight then you need to be a little tighter on your control. Look the thing is, if you follow what I suggest in this blog, you aren't going to have any money worries.
So you have written down your goals, and you haven't told anyone about them have you? (see my last post) Good.
Now remember I was talking about the wonderful method of chunking? Well I hope that's what you have being doing with your wonderful goals or at least some of them.
Now what I want you to do after you have read this post is find yourself a quiet spot and relax. Take all the time in the world until you feel relaxed and composed. If you have screaming rug rats around the house, this is not the time to do it, you need to find a space where you are on your own and you are not going to be disturbed.
Right you are on your own now, so the only thing you need to do is de-clutter that mind of yours and settle down, letting go of any negative thoughts (I like to light an incense stick at this stage). Now you should have your goals written down on a pad. Have a look at the first goal you want to achieve and get a real feel for it, as in really think how much you want this, and what it would mean to you. Next look at the first chunk of this goal, and ask yourself out loud,
"What do I need to do in order to achieve this goal?" Then sit back, close your eyes and wait for the answer. When the answer arrives (which it will) then ask yourself "What is the easiest way for me to do this," and relax until the answer comes.
What we are doing above is using the power of our subconscious mind. What ever questions you we throw at it they shall be answered, and it has got some amazing answers, believe me.
I am not going to go any further today, I want you to learn to relax and get used to firing questions at your subconscious mind. Fine tune your questions so that they really test the subconscious Don't be surprised if you wake up in be in the middle of the night shouting eureka. Don't think just because you have switched off that your subconscious has, oh no!! it will still be trying to find the answers to those questions which you gave it earlier.
The subconscious mind never sleeps, its always awake in the background listening, and monitoring your life, it knows more about us than ourselves.. More about that in my next post.

So you want to hit the back of the net
It's easy setting goals, its a doddle (I like that word) to achieve them. There is one simple rule that I use to when I set out to achieve goals and that's chunking (I like that word also). I wouldn't set out to achieve goals without chunking. Why? Because its a winner and I love anything that allows me to win win win.
What is chunking? Well its breaking your goals into easy to do bite size chunks so that they are manageable, achievable, and gaugeable You want to be able see that you are making progress towards your end target don't you? Yes because its good for the soul.
Lets give you and example. If I wanted to write a book (which is something I do) and I set out for at least 40,000 words it may appear to be a long tedious task if I only had the end goal in sight. What I do is set my self a target of one thousand words a day, which is easy for me as I can write around 5,000 words in a sitting. At that rate, I will have created my draft in around 40 days and lets say one week for editing. Hey presto in around two months there's my book. You get the picture?
You may want to buy a car, but the price is way out of your league, but if you chunk it down its possible. You can break it down into small enough chunks over a long enough period, then anything is achievable, the only thing that is stopping you is yourself. It could be a Porsche or a Lamborghini for 4o grand, chunk it and have the patience for ten years and you will be driving it, believe me. though you could just keep telling yourself that you will never have it and guess what, you will prove yourself right.
When you are setting goals you must take other people out of the equation and whatever you do please don't go about telling others what your plans are because they are bound to fail. A little bit of silent power is needed here. If you don't understand what silent power is read this book by Stuart Wilde its the best book that I have ever read, scouts honour on that.
He will tell you things that will change you life.
Any way back to setting goals...
One goal that you need to set yourself is to surround yourself with positive people (like myself) who want to see you do well. Its amazing the effect that negative energy can have on what you want to achieve. There are people that always want to rain on your parade, yeah you know the ones am talking about don't you? so what the hell are you doing with them? You have to begin a clear out of all the dead wood, the people who are (pardon my French) bringing all the shit to your table. Your goal setting now and you want to move on, don't you? I hope you do.
Get a pen and start writing them down, if you need any help just ask and I will try and point you in the right direction. I have got all the time in the world for those who are setting goals and want to make it go the brilliant zone.
Wait until till you see my next post, I am going to show you a little bit of magic and you would be daft to miss it. Its very powerful stuff.

Setting Your Goals and Breaking Free
What Zone are you in?So you have finally had enough of getting up in the morning and doing the same old thing. You feel like you are travelling in circles on a merry go round, same old routine day in day out. In fact you cant even be bothered getting out of be in the mornings, and you ask yourself what's the point. You haven't got enough money to spend on what you want, and you are just about paying the bills, life's a struggle.
Sounds to me like your in the grey zone, but wait, it could be worse, you could be in the awful zone, now there's a place you don't want to be.
I am going to ask you a few questions - let us see what your answers are.
- Do you have anything to look forward to in the future?
- Do you love getting out of bed in the mornings?
- Do you take a holiday at least once a year?
- Can you afford to buy the things that you want?
- Do have a job?
- Do you love your Job?
- Can you afford to join in all of the activities that your friends or partner may put forward?
If you answered no to two or more of these questions you are in the grey zone.
If you answered no to three or more of them you are in the awful zone.
If you answered yes to all of them, then you are in the brilliant zone and this particular post is not for you, because you're enjoying life, you lucky sod.
Setting GoalsIf you are in the awful zone, or the grey zone, how do you get out of it, you are probably thinking to yourself... Well you will need to set yourself a few goals, and go about achieving them.
Now you need to set goals in a positive manner, as in... do not state what you 'don't want', state what you 'do want'.
i.e I don't want to be walking to work in a years time (negative goals setting).
I want to be driving to work in a brand new car in a years time (positive goal setting).
Generally if you have the words don't and can't in your goal setting then these are negative Remove them and take a different approach. This is very important.
Here are some examples below of positive goal setting:
State the goal in positive terms.
Describe the Present Situation and compare it with the desired future goal.
- Where are you now?
- Where do you want to be?
- What do you want?
- State it in the positive (what you want to achieve).
- What are you going toward?
Ok now that I have given you the tools to find out where you are at the present point in time, and whether or not you need to address your situation. you need to spend a couple of hours setting goals. Look at the examples above and take your time.
I shall be back in a couple of days, to empower your goal building process.
I shall be back in a couple of days, to empower your goal building process.
Just remember if you answered no to two or more of the questions above, you need to make some changes in your life. remember the great thing about setting goals is that you can be as extravagant as you want,there are no limits and it is a process which should be fun, so reach for the stars with your goals and if you make half of them come true you will be in a totally different reality.
The next time somebody tells you that setting goals is really a lot of hype, tell him/her this. "If life is a journey, how will you get there if you don’t have an itinerary? Goals tell you where you are going, how you are going to get there, and what you will do when you get there".
As soon as you start writing your goals down and believing in them, you will already be taking a giant leap towards the 'Brilliant Zone' and that is where we all want to be.
Its not hard, at all, you just need to get the ball rolling.
