The most effective way to program your goals deeply into your mind is to write them daily. I would encourage you to buy a nice leather journal or a simple spiral-bound notebook and begin writing your goals daily. Each morning before you get out of bed or just before retiring at night – or maybe at both times – take your journal, write the date at the top of a new page, and write at least ten goals you would like to accomplish in the next year. Use these four primary areas of life as your guide: Health and Fitness, Family and Personal, Business and Career, and Financial Independence.
 
  1. Write each goal in the first person; i.e. “I”.
  2. Write each goal in the present tense, as though it has already been achieved; e.g.” I have a net worth of $5 million”.
  3. Write each goal using an active verb; e.g. I am, I earn, I weigh, I have and so on.
  4. Write each goal as a positive statement; e.g. “I am free of nicotine” as opposed to “I do not smoke.” You cannot motivate with a negative.
  5. Write each goal with deadline; e.g. "I earn $500,000 by 12/31/2016."
  6. Write at least ten goals daily (business, family, personal) and more if you wish.

So, which of these goals, if you accomplished it in the next 24 hours would have the most positive impact on your life and year? What are you waiting for…go DO something that moves you closer to that goal! And have a great 2016!
