How You can Set Powerful Goals that Don’t Fail

Creating your own Future with a Creative & Fail Proof method

Have you been setting goals but not been getting the results expected?

Many people experience failure, but it doesn’t have to be like this.

Setting Goals has been a basic strategy since the dawn of time. Smart thinkers have used goal setting and studied the effects and reasoning behind goal setting for thousands of years.

Your goals must come from the heart.

Imagine, you want to write something. It could be a blog post or it could be a book or similar. You can only successfully complete a good piece of writing if you know what you are talking about.

Self Image

Self-image is who you are right now. It dictates a lot about your actions, and what you are motivated to do. We all possess a self-image, it gives us a sense of presence and reflection in a complex world.

We can develop self image to become stronger minded, more self-disciplined in our actions.

I’ve known highly skilled people who aren’t very successful with their skill because of a lack of self-discipline.

Your self-image gives you a level of self-esteem.

The two are not quite the same thing but work closely together.

Self-image stems from the more active self-esteem.

Self esteem is the driver, the character who knows that they are capable of carrying out the tasks set before them.

Are we in control of our decisions?

According to Dan Ariely, we don’t, and he makes a strong case about the subject on this video.

Main Points to remember

  1. Planning requires that you know yourself — if you wish to be successful.
  2. Self-Esteem is a reflection of your true values.
  3. Self-image is a basic synopsis of who you see yourself as in the world — how you fit in.
  4. We don’t have total conscious control over decision making. It is a result of our self-esteem and our personal values that drives goals and outcomes.
  5. Don’t be afraid to set high goals in order to find out who you really are in life.
  6. Self-Knowledge is a power. It will give you so much feedback and help to keep you on a successful path in life and business
  7. Living is a creative process of finding out about things by doing things. Sitting around thinking about the value of a decision or idea, is a great way to waste life.
  8. You can never come to a decision about anything by thinking about it only. You must act to know.
  9. Never quit, unless you know that something you are doing is working against the grain of your true self-esteem and self-image.
  10. Learn to trust your creative instincts; they are you unconscious mind giving you prompts and new ideas.
  11. Thanks for reading this post, please let me know what you think about this subject — I’m very interested to know what you have planned.
