 Article Title :: Achieve Your Goals By Applying And Not Buying
 
Recently, I read a comment by Ken Reno that people lose large amounts of money when they keep "buying but never applying" internet products and services. What are the solutions to this problem?Incidentally, the solutions may well apply to offline as well as online activities since many people, whether they use the internet or not, are too lazy or lacking in confidence to read and apply the information they buy even though it is about their favorite activities.I am an expert at buying and not applying. Buying is easy and getting into credit card debt as a result is also easy.I am a real sucker for a good sales letter. It opens up vistas of hope and easy money. It is ea  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Goal Setting: Do Your Expectations Outweigh Your Achievments?
 
Does it feel at times as if you can't achieve the goals you are setting for yourself no matter what you do? Do you feel as if all your efforts are a waste of time because nothing seems to get any better for you? Maybe it's not the effort you're putting forth that's the problem. Maybe it's the goals that you have set for yourself. We humans have the habit at times of seeing the big picture as the issue we need to deal with at the moment. Then when the big issue hasn't been dealt with in the time frame we envision, we get discouraged and decide that it's not worth the effort. Let me share a couple examples with you to show what I mean. Let's say you've decided you nee  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 7 Big Mistakes In Goal-Setting - #1: Thinking "Away-from", not "Towards"
 
Resolutions like "I will not smoke" are expressed in negative language - they're describing what you don't want. But this only gives you a mental image of what you're trying to get away from - in this case, smoking.Your brain unconsciously filters your perceptions of the world around you. Given the huge amount of sensory data available to you every single second, you have to ignore most of it – there just wouldn't be time to take it all in. So, without even thinking about it, you choose to notice what you are interested in and ignore the rest.Some of the filters are instinctive, designed to help us survive by noticing events that are likely to affect us - if somebody yells  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 7 Big Mistakes In Goal-Setting - #2: Trying to Set Goals that are not Really Yours
 
Whose goal are you trying to achieve? You will only be truly engaged with a goal if it is really yours. If you are trying to live up to someone else’s idea of who you should be, you are bound to have some unconscious resistance – unless your vision for yourself exactly coincides with theirs.Your unconscious mind likes to be given instructions. It loves to have things to do. And if you don't give it any instructions, it will take them from wherever it can find them – which is why advertising works.If you have not fully examined what is important to you and what you want, the goals you set may be influenced by family, the media, or peer pressure. You may be fine with thi  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 7 Big Mistakes In Goal-Setting - #3: Not Fully Engaging Your Imagination
 
You already know that to maximize their chances of success, goals need to be specific and measurable. This is what distinguishes them from aims or feelings – something has to change in the real world. For example, "I want to be happy" is not a goal – it's a feeling. You can make yourself happy right now, just by thinking of someone you like or something you're good at.Goals are different. They take place in the real world, where changes take time. You need to know what will be different when the goal is achieved, so you will know when you have achieved it. The more vivid the picture you can make of your goal, the more motivating it will be.Specific and measurable are ea  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 7 Big Mistakes In Goal-Setting - #4: Not Putting a Date on the Goal
 
Until you have put a date on your goal, it will keep getting pushed to the back of your queue of priorities.Why? Your unconscious mind is a good and faithful servant, and it will do its best to give you whatever you ask it for. But it will always take the line of least resistance. If you don't put a date on your goal, there will always be something more urgent to deal with. This (I believe) is why important but non-urgent tasks tend to be neglected, as time management guru Stephen Covey pointed out in "The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People".You therefore need to put a date on your goal. Make that date as soon as you reasonably can. If it turns out that you overshoot it by   (read full article)

 Article Title :: 7 Big Mistakes In Goal-Setting - #5: Not Taking Knock-on Effects of Achieving Your Goal into Account
 
The ancient saying "Be careful what you ask for, in case you get it" is a very wise one. Because your unconscious mind will do its best to give you what you ask for – no more, no less – you have to be very clear about what the goal is that you are setting.Consider a businessman who very single-mindedly sets a SMART goal of owning a company with a turnover of a million in its first year.A year later he has his company, it's turned over a million, so he has achieved his goal. But – his health is shot due to working 19-hour days, he's a hundred pounds overweight because he's been living on junk food, his wife has left him because he's never home, and he has no friends lef  (read full article)

 Article Title :: 7 Big Mistakes In Goal-Setting - #6: "Taking too much on" and Getting Discouraged
 
It can be very easy to set a big, compelling goal – and then feel overwhelmed by the perceived slog of getting there. The goal is so big, and so different from how things are now, that getting there by the deadline you have set will surely demand too much of you. And the more you think about the legwork it will take, the more discouraged you feel.There are two things you have to do to regain your motivation.When you think about your goal, picture how great it will be when you have achieved it – not what you will have to do to get there. This will instantly feel more motivating. When you book a vacation or a weekend away, you are thinking about what you will do when   (read full article)

 Article Title :: 7 Big Mistakes In Goal-Setting - #7: Not Knowing What You Want
 
This is the biggest and most common goal-setting mistake of all – not getting round to setting any goals because you don't know what you want.You can be an expert in all the goal-setting techniques known to man, but if you haven't taken the time to find out what you really want, one of two things is bound to happen:You don't set any goals. This means that you drift, and life just happens to you, and you have to react to whatever it decides to throw at you. This might work out OK if you're lucky – and it might not.(It's perfectly possible to drift in a well-paid corporate career, by the way – for the first twelve years of my working life, I sleepwalked th  (read full article)
