There's a "process" involved in just about everything we do, including making major changes in our personal life goals, so why would it be any different for setting personal goals. Without the knowledge of how to use this "process" to make changes, there's a good chance that whichever personal goals you do set will fail.
Let's take any sporting event as an example. Before the game each coach has outlined a particular "process", or strategy, for the team to execute, and it's called the "game plan". Each player has been made aware of the plan and is expected to follow it to the letter.
Naturally, the goal in every sporting event is pretty simple, Win the Game!
However, once the opposing coach recognizes the other teams game plan, a defensive "process", or strategy will be put in place to counter-act their plan. In effect, they're always trying to set up roadblocks to stop the opposing team.
This "process" goes back and forth during the entire game and usually, the team that has devised the best "processes" wins the game. There is always one "constant" and that's the goal of winning the game, and that NEVER changes!
The point here is, you must develop a "process" or plan to achieve your personal goals, and this plan can be changed periodically as you hit roadblocks, but the personal goals you set must never be abandoned! We'll show you how the "process" works, as we move along.
Once you decide to change your thoughts, in order to change your personal life goals, you have triggered an automatic brain response that will change the way you now perceive certain things.
Whatever change you think you would like to make, just deciding to change something will allow you to begin seeing things that were not perceptible before.
You see, you will now begin to focus on something totally different in your life, something that has gotten you excited about what lies ahead. Setting Personal Goals will very soon become your passion.
If you have focused on just one of your dreams, say playing the guitar, or the piano, or anything that ignites a passion in you, you will begin perceiving things about guitars, or pianos, or whatever, that you never saw before.
When you decide to make serious personal life changes, your brain will begin making these new connections, in an effort to reach your personal life goals.
Since your brain is now making new connections, you are about to go on a new journey. If you set your expectations to something you really want to experience, you'll begin seeing more things that are connected to that personal life goal.
To truly grow personally, you have to improve your awareness of certain things going on around you. The only way to make that happen is by setting personal goals. You see, setting personal goals will make you focus on certain things you didn't recognize before.
You didn't recognize them because they didn't interest you, but now that you have begun setting personal goals, you have increased your brains awareness of something new, so it's constantly searching for anything related to your new personal life goal.
When we decide on a personal goal, we will automatically start tuning in to things that are relevant to the goal we chose. It's much like tuning into a radio or TV station.
There are thousands of broadcast frequencies out in cyber space that we're unaware of until we tune our radio or TV to a particular dial setting or channel.
When the setting coincides with the frequency that a transmitter is broadcasting at, we can then hear or see this information. Setting personal goals works in a similar fashion.
It basically tells our mind that we want information that is relevant to our goal, and we suddenly have tuned in to everything around us that has something to do with the achievement of our new goal! It's a rather phenomenal function of the brain.
