Do you have some goals you’d like to reach? If so, keep reading…
I was recently reminded of a lesson I’d learned a long time ago about the most important step to reaching any goal.
I had stopped doing this step myself!
So, what is it?
Writing them down.
There’s been an incredible amount of research done, which shows people with “written goals” are more successful at accomplishing them.
If you think about it, this makes sense!
When we are just trying to remember something, we are more likely to forget about it because there is so much other activity going on in our brain.
However, when we write things down, we ANCHOR information in a part of our brain and it ‘stays there’.
Have you ever written out a shopping list, forgotten it at home, but still managed to get most of the items on the list?
Same principle in action!
I once heard Jack Canfield, author of Chicken Soup for The Soul and The Success Principles describe written goals another way.
He explained that when we write down our goals it is like we are submitting a ‘work order’ to the universe…
It can’t deliver when nothing’s been requested!
In fact, writing 2 daily wellness goals was part of the morning routine I created at the treatment program.
Each morning patients would have to identify two goals: one they wanted to focus on during the day and another for later the evening.
So, there are two ways you can put today’s post in to ACTION.
# 1 – Think about the life goals you want to accomplish and write them down!
# 2 – Think of 2 wellness goals every day, one for the daytime and another for the evening and write them down every morning!
