Setting and achieving goals can be a simple but powerful way to improve your life and reach your full potential. Here are some steps to help you set and achieve your goals.
Step 1: Become Brutally Aware of What You Don’t Want
When it comes to setting and achieving our goals, it’s important to first become aware of what we don’t want in life. This may seem counterintuitive, but often knowing what we don’t want can help us define and clarify our vision for the future. By observing the masses and seeing where mindless action leads, we can get a sense of the negative outcomes that we want to avoid.
It’s important to note that simply accepting what we see on the surface level is not the way to go. Instead, we need to think deeper and not close our minds off to the possibilities of what we want in life. It’s easier to know what we don’t want from experience and observation than it is to know what we want from imagination alone.
Step 2: Create an “Anti-Vision
One way to clarify our vision for the future is by creating an “anti-vision” – a negative image of what we don’t want in life. This can be a powerful motivator, as negative energy can be used to achieve what we want in life. When we think about the negative consequences of not taking action, it can be a powerful tool to get us moving.
To create an anti-vision, sit down with a notebook and become a mad scientist. Draw out everything you don’t want in this life. What do you not want to look like? What do you not want your future to be? What do you not want your day to look like on an everyday basis? From this exercise, it will be much clearer to you what your vision will actually be, because it’s just the opposite of those things.
Step 3: Create a Plan
Once we have a clear idea of what we don’t want in life and what our vision for the future is, the next step is to create a plan. This means being the mad scientist that is going to work on the project of your life. Create a plan, create a strategy for exactly what you are going to do on a day-to-day basis, week-by-week. Get extremely specific and create the order so you don’t become a victim of entropy.
Entropy is the supreme law of the universe and if we don’t create order for our lives, we will decline into chaos. By having a plan, we can ensure that we take control of our lives and don’t let entropy take hold.
Step 4: Disappear
Finally, the last step is to disappear. This means cutting ourselves off from distractions and focusing on our goals. This can be difficult, as our minds are constantly bombarded with distractions. But by disappearing, we can focus on our vision, our plan and our anti-vision.
here are some points to be keep in mind,
Be Willing to Take Risks
One of the keys to achieving our goals is being willing to take risks. We may be afraid of failure, but it’s important to remember that failure is a necessary part of growth and success. By being willing to take risks and step outside of our comfort zones, we open ourselves up to new opportunities and experiences.
Visualize Your Success
Another important step in achieving our goals is visualization. By picturing ourselves achieving our goals in our minds, we can make them feel more real and tangible. This can help to increase our motivation and focus, and can also help to reduce the negative self-talk that can hold us back.
Develop a Support System
Achieving our goals can be challenging and it’s important to have a support system in place. This can be friends, family or a coach, who can provide encouragement and guidance when we’re feeling stuck or discouraged. Having a support system can also help to keep us accountable and on track.
Be Patient and Persistent
Finally, it’s important to remember that achieving our goals takes time and effort. It’s important to be patient and persistent, even when things get difficult. It’s also important to celebrate our progress and accomplishments along the way, rather than focusing solely on the end goal.
In conclusion, taking control of our lives requires us to become aware of what we don't want, create an anti-vision, create a plan and disappear. By following these steps, we can set and achieve our goals in 6 to 12 months.
