“By recording your dreams and goals on paper, you set in motion the process of becoming the person you most want to be. Put your future in good hands – your own.” – Mark Victor Hansen
If you were to walk into my office you will notice there are goals written on the walls. If you were to walk into my bathroom you will see goals taped to my bathroom mirror. If you were to look in my wallet, you will see my goals stuck to my driver’s license.
Why is it important to write down your goals and look at them often? First of all, your brain sees things consciously and subconsciously. When we look right at a picture or a goal and actually think of it while we are looking at it, we are using our conscious mind.
Our conscious mind is the most vulnerable to doubt and negative thoughts. We may look at a goal using conscious thought and deep down think it may be unobtainable.
On the other hand, our subconscious mind does not know the difference between the truth and a lie, and it thinks you can accomplish anything. By posting your goals everywhere, your subconscious mind will see them and will begin to work at finding a way to help you achieve them. There is power in writing down your goals.
When you write down a goal make sure you write it as you already have it accomplished. Some examples may be:
- My center is full with a wait list.
- My center is fully staffed.
- All of my parents are happy and pay their bill on time.
- I weigh ___ pounds.
- I have $100,000 in my savings account.
- I own a brand-new White GMC Yukon.
