Goal Objectives: Looking Ahead To Get Ahead With Planning
With goal objectives in mind, consider the organizers of a marathon race. They take time to mark out the course. The way is planned. Otherwise reaching the finish line would be a matter of chance depending on whether a runner just happened to be in the area to see it!
Likewise reaching goal objectives requires planning.
It's important to identify obstacles and also how to acquire help.
Make a list of possible obstacles and yet another list of knowledge, people or organizations that could help you.
Also there is a need for deadlines and the need to make another list of manageable slices or segments leading toward the main goal.
The next step involves using all the information gathered from these two previous steps.
Combine all these lists and put them in a logical order
Lay out the manageable steps in order of progression interweaving the details from your obstacles list and help list.
Get a large sketch pad and play around with the order of things until the plan begins to flow towards your goal objectives.
Acquiring knowledge for example would come before contacting people or organizations.
Once you have educated yourself a little you can ask intelligent questions and get valuable answers and leads.
Without knowledge you don't even know what you need to know to be able to ask!
Make sure your plan is not too rigid!
Otherwise any deviation from the course could spell disaster if the plan is not flexible!
So factor in room for the unexpected when moving towards your goal objectives.
If one deadline is missed it should not jeoparize the rest of the plan.
Have more than one option open at crucial stages.
The flow can then follow a different route and still arrive at the same destination and achieve your goal objectives.
Once this session is completed you now have an action plan.
The course to the finish line for your goal is set. The way is marked out.
This step is a tremendous confidence booster and it is extremely practical.
Without planning you can drop out of the race early on.
When it comes to your goal objectives, by looking ahead through planning you get ahead and stay ahead!

Mountain Climbing Over Molehills
Someone has said that the greatest cause of ulcers is mountain-climbing over mole-hills! Is that the way you get your exercise? Many folks allow themselves to be thrown off course by minor or imaginary threats. Often they interpret these as life-or-death, or do-or-die situations. They put so much energy into their worries that there is none available for progress. Some even believe that worrying demonstrates caring. This is misguided, too.
How to FEEL your way to Success
Do you remember the last time you had a blast? I mean you were having the time of your life. Think about it. I hope it was not too long ago.
We have all had times in our lives where someone discouraged our beliefs or even passions in life. Maybe someone told you that you couldn't do something because of whom you are or where you come from. Maybe they told you that you weren't "good" enough or that you will never amount to anything. Those comments however small they may seem could actually become loud voices in your head eating away at your self esteem. For someone unsure of themselves, these statements may actually be more powerful than one may realize.

7 Ways To Ignite Your Vision
Probably the hardest skill to teach, and the one of the most vital to posess, is vision. Vision requires discipline in order to generate images of what you would like to become, both professionally and personally. This is an intensive process to determine which direction you want to go, and will require a little time and effort on your part. You can have a bad week and it is okay. Your goal for that week may be in jeopardy, but that won't stop you from reaching your destination, your ultimate vision or your picture of what you will be. If your vision is to be the top salesperson in your district, for example, you will figure out that at the present time you are not qualified to do it.
