Whats the difference between people that reach their goals and people that don’t?

Is it that they are smarter? Quicker? More intelligent? NO

People that achieve their goals have this in common they have already figured out and activated the 3 mental muscles needed to get more of what they want in their life.

Discipline Perseverance and Determination.

But heres the trick to activate these mental muscle’s your goals must make sure that they use them. HOW? By setting yourself goals that you can’t achieve you will grow beyond your own reasoning which in turn will teach you anything is possible its just about a clear action plan to get there.

People fail to achieve their goals in life and get what they want because believe or not they set them selves goals that they think they can achieve and therefor never end up doing it.

Now I know what you are thinking this is counter intuitive to reaching your goal right?

Setting a goal should be something that is realistic like using a SMART plan, however this is one of the main reasons people don’t reach them.

Have you ever set yourself a goal year after year that you know you could achieve? But didn’t then I want you to think about what I am about to share with you.

Goal setting is an intellectual faculty issue, like I said it’s a mind over matter situation which ultimately starts with how you are approaching your goal setting. Once you have activated the 3 mental muscles mentioned above you will be unstoppable.

We know that each of us have 5 senses, sight, smell, taste, touch and hear right?

But did you know that we also have 6 intellectual faculties? And used correctly it will drive you forwards to achieving more than you ever thought possible so that when you look backwards next year, you will be so proud of what you have accomplished you will be sharing this insight with everyone you know.

So here they are:

  1. Imagination
  2. Reason
  3. Intuition
  4. Perception
  5. Memory
  6. Will

Now to set goals that challenge you to grow, they must be approached using 2 of these intellectual Faculties.

Imagination and Intuition

Imagination actually allows us to envision and dream about things it’s the part of us that we usually use less of as we get older because we generally look back at past experiences and memory using our logic and reasoning to set goals but this never works.

Our top tip for goal setting is to use your imagination not memory because your memory will limit you.

Look at it this way memory is a defined history of your past

Imagination used properly defines the future potential.

Intuition is the part of you that wants you to do what feels right, therefore if it’s not right for you generally you will throw in the towel and quit before you make it.
