Goals For Athlete Part 3: Start Doing This Technique Today!

As promised today I will share this technique I started implementing:


I got this technique from Success Coach Brian Tracy. Brian says that this is a special method that has taken more people from rags to riches than any other single method ever discovered. It is simple, fast, effective and guaranteed to work if you will practice it.

Before understanding why this technique works you should read Part 1 and Part 2 in which we discussed briefly that: “You become what you think about most of the time.” This is the great truth that underlies all religion, philosophy, psychology and success. Whatever you can hold in your mind on a continuing basis you can have. I hope you believe this because this is they key to achieving your goals.

Many people today talk about the importance of positive thinking.his clip called “The Secret” which a lot of people liked , well I thought IT SUCKED! But hear me out. Positive thinking is important, but it is not enough. Left undirected and uncontrolled, positive thinking can quickly degenerate into positive wishing and positive hoping. Instead of serving as an energy force for inspiration and higher achievement, positive thinking can become little more than a generally cheerful attitude toward life and whatever happens to you, positive or negative. To be focused and effective in goal attainment, positive thinking must translate into positive knowing.

You must absolutely know and believe in the depths of your being that you are going to be successful at achieving a particular goal. You must proceed completely without doubt.You must be so resolute and determined, so convinced of your ultimate success that nothing can stop you. Everything that you do to program your subconscious mind with this unshakable conviction of success will help you achieve your goals faster.

This method of writing your goals daily can actually multiply your talents and abilities and greatly increase the speed at which you move from wherever you are to wherever you want to go. One of the most important mental laws is:

“Whatever is impressed is expressed.”

Whatever you impress deeply into your subconscious mind will eventually be expressed in your external world. Your aim in mental programming is to impress your goals deeply into your subconscious mind so that they lock in and take on a power of their own. This method helps you to do that.

This is Brian Tracy’s experience:

“For many years I worked away at my goals, writing them down once or twice a year and reviewing them whenever I got a chance. Even this was enough to make an incredible difference in my life. often I would write down a list of goals for myself in January for the coming year, in December of that year I would review my list and find that most of the goals had been accomplished, including some of the biggest and most unbelievable goals on the list.”

I then learned a technique that changed my life. I discovered that if it is powerful for you to write down your goals once a year, it is even more powerful for you to write down your goals more often. Some authors suggest that you write down ad review your goals once a month, others once a week. What I learned was the power of writing and rewriting your goals every single day.”

Here’s the technique:

  1. Get a spiral notebook that you keep you at all times.
  2. Each day open up your notebook and write down a list of your 10 to 15 most important goals, without referring to your previous list.
  3. Do this every day, day after day .

As you do this, several remarkable things will happen. The first day you write down your list of goals you’ll have to give it some thought and reflection. Most people have never made a list of their ten top goals in their entire lives. The second day you write out your list without reference to your previous list, it will be easier, however your 10 to 15 goals will change, both in description and order of priority. Sometimes, a goal that you wrote one day will not appear the next day. It may even be forgotten and never reappear again. Or, it may reappear later, at a more appropriate time.

Each day that you write down your list of 10 to 15 goals your definitions will become clearer and sharper. ou will eventually find yourself writing down the same words every day. Your order of priority will also change as your life changes around you, but over time after about 30 days, you will find yourself writing adn rewriting the same goals almost every day. You will get far greater and faster results enjoyed by those people who write their goals down only one time. Your results will double and triple and increase 5 and 10 times as you use the same power of goal setting that we have discussed earlier, but now writing your goals down every day.

Ok… That’s it for now. In Part 4 of this study we will go in more detail and discuss what special rules to follow to get this to work really , really well, but don’t forget to start writing your goals tonight or first thing in the morning.
