Give Your Dreams Substance

by: Josh Hinds

Setting goals is wonderful; it confirms that we’ve taken those first awkward steps towards attaining what we desire in our lives. The simple fact that you’ve taken the time to plan out what you want to achieve puts you in a distinct class. Amazingly very few people take the time to keep a running list of goals. Sadly, even fewer people actually work their goals. So take the time right now to give yourself a little pat on the back! You deserve it.

You’re part of the elite group of people who have chosen to take an active role in their own success. If the whole idea of goal setting (and goal achieving) is a new one to you, don’t worry; the important thing is that you’ve decided to take the bull by the horns and get started!

Here’s a technique to add substance to the goals you’ve set! Remember, the more real the goal is in your mind, the easier your subconscious mind can get around your desires and jump into action and start helping you realize them!

This technique assumes you’ve already decided on the things you’d like to achieve. If you’re not there yet then take the time to record your goal, dreams and the action steps you believe are necessary to reach them. Be sure to give yourself the room to adjust those items as needed. It’s a journey and one that you should derive enjoyment from. Remember, you’re taking the word chance out of the equation and are taking an active role in the reaching the destinations you set for yourself.

After you’ve listed out your goals and dreams, the next step is to actually visualize yourself reaching your intended goal. It is through visualization that we can actually program ourselves to reach that which we desire.

My friend, it’s one thing for you to say, “I want to get a new job”, and quite another to say, “In my dream job I will be in charge of marketing at a growth oriented company. I will find employment in such and such an industry. To reach this destination I will send out a certain amount of resumes and do follow-ups with those companies until I secure the employment I am looking for”.

The idea is that you’re rehearsing these events in your mind. You’re giving them vast amounts of power because as the saying goes. That which the mind can conceive, it can achieve. When using visualization with your goals try and do it as vividly as you can. The more real they appear the better.

Another technique is to imagine yourself sitting in a movie theater. See your goals and dreams playing out before you on a large screen. Find a technique that works for you (the key word being what works for you).

Hopefully from the example above you see the difference that a little visualization can play in making our goals more “concrete” in our minds? To say I want to find my dream job is one thing, but to identify it and imagine myself doing this job (and taking the necessary steps to become employed) creates an added energy that will propel you towards making it a reality!

Here’s to your success, Josh Hinds

Begin the New Year Right – Get Organized!

by: Kerry Flinders

Here we are, facing a brand new year filled with endless possibilities. I don’t know if you’re the type of person who makes New Year’s Resolutions or not, but I have a resolution for you that you should put on your list, whether you have a list or not.

Get Organized!

Being organized is a terrific feeling. Being organized helps you in so many ways.

When your spaces are organized you can find things easier, eliminating needless stress from looking for items you can’t find. Also, when your spaces are organized you spend less time cleaning, since everything is in its perfect place.

When your schedule and time are organized you can find more time for yourself, for your kids and for your Life.

Being organized helps me to take on my daily life, filled with family, work and social activities easily. Being organized helps me to not only keep up with my life, but it allows me to enjoy it more.

That’s why I feel that even if you are not the type of person who makes New Year’s Resolutions you should definitely make “Get Organized” something you add to your schedule this year.

How do you get from one of the most unorganized people you know to being a super organized individual? Here are some tips:

1. Make a “master list” of all the areas in your home, life, and schedule that need organizing help.

2. Put your list into some kind of order listing the most important things that need to get organized asap first and the things you are just hoping to get organized, but aren’t that important last.

3. Take out your planner (electronic, paper, calendar, anything) and start adding all of your items from your “master list” to your schedule. If you schedule all the items right into your planner you have a much higher probability of actually doing them.

4. Dedicate the first several months of this New Year to your plans on getting organized. It is nearly impossible to get organized over night. Be realistic with your time frame and realize that this might take you several months to finish.

5. Each time you cross off another item from your schedule that pertained to your “master list” pat yourself on the back and feel good about your efforts.

Remember that being organized is an ongoing process. Not just for you, but for everyone, including myself. Once you organize an area of your home, or your office, or your time you have to be aware that there are forces at work all around you that will try and throw your organization out of whack. Someone will come along and misplace an item you organized. Sometimes that someone is you.

So once you get yourself organized be sure that you put some effort in to staying organized. If you don’t put in the effort, you will once again be faced with an unorganized life before you even realize it.

So seize this New Year by the horns and make this the year you Get Organized!
