7 MUST-HAVE Conditions To Goal Setting


The three keys to living without limits have always been thesame. They are clarity, competence, and concentration. Goalsetting will help you live without limits. Learning how to setgoals is an art. Learn why setting goals is a necessity. Here are7 Must-have conditions to set goals.

1. State your goal in positive terms.

People often set a goal in terms of what they don't want! "Idon't want to smoke, to be angry..." It's "what I want to do orwant to be" See the difference? Hear the nuance? Are you ready tostate positively every goal you want to achieve?

2. Make sure the goal can be self-initiated and maintainedThe goal doesn't depend on the attitude of your neighbor, on thebehavior of your wife or family. The success of your goal mustdepend on you, and you alone.

3. Your goal must be sensory specific

Here comes the importance of clarity. The clearer the picture,the more compelling and the more attractive it is, the greaterthe drive to reach your final destination. Act as if the goal isalready achieved. Make a very clear image, in rich details, andyou will be so enthusiastic that you will automatically attractthe solution.

4. State the context of the goal.

"Where and when will my goal be achieved?" The answer can beobvious for some goals but not at all for others. Try to be asspecific as possible.

5. Run a Quality Control check on the goal to ensure balance inall areas of your home/work life.

Above all, you don't want to lose your balance. When you run this'Quality Control Check", you play a win-win strategy. Everythingis one system and the whole system must win. You will find peaceof mind in knowing that you are in harmony with the system. Stepback and look at all areas of your life. Is your goal worth it?

6. State the resources needed to achieve the goal: what is theprice to pay?

There is always a price to pay, for everything. There is alwayssome kind of sacrifice to make when you set a worthy goal. Inthis step, you will define all that you will need, in terms oftime, money and energy.

7. State the value and the consistency of the goal.

Why do I want to reach this goal? Why is it important to me? Isthis goal in harmony with my vision, beliefs and values? Answerthese questions. If you don't seem to be satisfied with theanswers, maybe you should change your goal. Set a new goal untilyou feel it is in harmony with your passion, vision or mission.

When you properly set a goal with this model, two importantthings occur. First, you are in total harmony with your vision,belief and value systems because your entire "You" agrees andoffers no resistance. Second, you are programmed to succeed.Indeed, your very (whole) neurology and physiology are bothinstructed to drive you towards obtaining your desired goal.You're totally focused.

Again, The three keys to living without limits have always beenthe same. They are clarity, competence, and concentration. Whenyou set crystal clear goals, and you respect the 7 must-haveconditions, you can literally live without limits, can't you?

You can live your dreams. A lot of people already are. Learn theultimate secret to turn all your dreams into reality.
