72. How can you tell when youíre truly committed to a goal? Have
you ever noticed when you really really want something that you
automatically think about it all the time? When you think about
it you get so motivated and enthusiastic that itís easy to take
73. What speeds up goal achievement? Some of the things that will
get you to your goal faster are: Commitment, enthusiasm/passion,
thinking about the goal a lot, using imagery or visualization,
regularly working with and getting help from your Goals Success
support group, opening your mind to possibilities, moving out of
your comfort zone, letting go of old ways of doing things and
taking lots of actions. Correct as you go. If one thing doesnít
work, try something else.
74. Surround yourself with successful supportive people: Itís
very important to associate with people who have already reached
the goals you want. Itís also good to spend time with people who
are striving for goals similar to yours. Unsupportive friends
and family may try to sabotage your efforts, be prepared for
this if it happens. The best way to handle such behavior is to
ignore it or to make a point of spending more time with those
who support and empower you.
75. Right and left-brain integration: As you probably know there
has been a lot of research recently on the importance of
bringing both sides of the brain together in your life. This
helps us to keep balance in our lives. The left brain is mainly
occupied with linear, word and number oriented tasks. The right
brain is connected to creativity and intuition. When you bring
them together, youíll find that you have more energy and
enthusiasm and things become almost effortless.
How do you do this? Most people are left
brain focused. If this is true for you then you need to check out
the ideas under creative tools in this report. Try them out and
see what a difference it makes in your goal setting experience. We
use these tools all the time and find they help to make setting
and reaching goals a lot more fun!
76. Don't let other peopleís reactions
to your success discourage you: As you reach goals and find
yourself changing you may lose many of the friends youíve made who
arenít on the same path. They may feel uncomfortable and jealous
about your success. They also may try to discourage you so that
you wonít change. Be prepared for this and try to find new friends
as you go along who will support and grow with you to enhance and
expand your horizons.
77. Read success stories about
others: One of the great ways for you to develop more
inspiration, passion and commitment for achieving your goals is to
read stories about people who have achieved outstanding success.
Stories that are especially inspiring are about people who have
faced great obstacles in reaching their goals. Their ingenuity,
commitment and perseverance can be very motivating for you. You
can also watch inspiring movies and listen to audiotapes, etc.
