Goals are some of the important parts of establishing a connection with yourself and the universe. Taking goals and turning them into tangible, real parts of your day-to-day life is one of the most valuable things you can do.
The process of creating goals is instrumental in why we go through creative visualization. The act of creatively visualizing relies heavily on the implementation of goals into daily life and experience.
Through these creative visualizations, you should be able to crystalize your goals and practice approaching or completing them. This is related to the Law of Attraction, which emphatically states that you should seek to attract what you wish to achieve.
Defining Your Goals
The first step towards writing your goals is to define what you wish to achieve. This can oftentimes prove difficult because we frequently lose track of what exactly it is we wish to achieve.
Daily schedules/regiments are the main sources of these problems. When trapped in day-to-day life, it’s easy to lost sight of what you actually wish to achieve.
The best way to do this is to break your goals down into short-term and long-term, as well as big picture vs. small picture. By defining which category your desires fit into, you’ll have a better understanding of what you wish to achieve and how to achieve it.
Do you want to secure a good grade on a test for the next school week? That’s a short-term goal.
Do you want to develop a healthy relationship and get married someday? That’s a long-term goal.
Trying to get rich overnight? That’s a small picture.
Trying to accumulate wealth over the course of a lifetime and use it to actively enhance your life and the life of those around you? That’s a big picture.
The other step of goal writing is to actually confront your goal, by specifying your exact desire and writing it down.
To do this, you should use reinforcing language and phrasing.
No “I want to” or “I wish to” – Instead, use “I will” and “I can’t wait to”. These phrases of positive reaffirmation make these goals seem more achievable, and less daunting. In the end, when a goal is perceived as obtainable, you’re more likely to pursue it.
In the end, the power is in your hands… and your pen.
