Principles 1Understand your true potential

Irrespective of what you've achieved thus far in life, there are quite literally no limits on what you can accomplish in the future. The only limits are those you impose yourself.

The key to living a happy life is to have some goals you feel passionate about and feel like you're making some progress towards them each day. Despite that, most people never get around to setting goals because:

They don't think goals are all that important.

They don't know how to set deeply motivational goals.

They fear the pain of failure so they decide not to even try.

They think others will ridicule them if they fall short of their goal.

To avoid these pitfalls, set some clear and measurable goals for yourself. Write those goals down and specify a deadline by which to achieve them. The clearer and more specific you are about your goals, the better. Just the simple act of specifying what your goals are will unleash a goal-seeking function within your mind, which will guide you unerringly towards your goal.

What's interesting is this internal goal-seeking mechanism is non-judgmental. It will work perfectly well whether your goals are humble or grandiose. Therefore, set your goals high, higher than you may feel you have a right to. Your mind will automatically start working towards achieving whatever you visualize, so dare to dream of something spectacular. There's no reason why you cannot achieve anything you set your mind to.

Principles 2Take responsibility for your life

Never blame others for where you're at today. Instead, take charge of your life. Assume full responsibility for everything you think, say and do from this moment forwards and you're on your way towards achieving your goals.

It's easy to blame others for how your life has turned out thus far. This is also a cop out from the real truth--namely, that nobody else is really responsible for what happens to you. Therefore, put aside your negative emotions and grudges and become the master of your own fate from this time forward. Promote yourself to president of your own personal services corporation and start figuring out where you really want to go from here.

As president, you need to decide your overall strategy:

What outputs you want to generate and be paid for.

Which self-promotional strategy you'll use.

Your financial strategy--how much you want to earn.

Your people strategy--who to include in your life's work.

Your personal training and learning strategy.

Your research and development activities.

The key point is you need to take full and complete control of your own life. Never leave this to others, or to random events that happen. By setting goals, you become more proactive and oriented towards the future rather than dwelling on the mistakes of the past. Just doing this will make you feel good.

Key Thoughts

"The starting point of goal setting is for you to realize that you have virtually unlimited potential to be, have, or do anything you really want in life if you simply want it badly enough and are willing to work long enough and hard enough to achieve it."

Brian Tracy

Principles 3Act as if you had no limitations

Never limit your thinking to what you currently have the resources to do. Instead, plan your future as if there were no limits to what you can do. You will always find the resources to do whatever you're most passionate about.
