Are You As Rich, Successful, Thin and Happy As You Want To Be?

If you're like most people the answer is "no." After all, there's always room for improvement. You have goals you want to meet and dreams you want very much to turn into reality.

But maybe something is holding you back. Have you ever set a date for a goal, and then find you were nowhere near achieving your goal when the date finally arrived? Maybe you wanted to write a book, start a business, make more money, and lose more weight.

You started out with enthusiasm and good intentions. And maybe you even initially took steps to accomplishing your goal. But suddenly you lost focus because life just happens. And soon the goal was put on the back burner, unmet and out of mind and the passion was gone.

Sometimes when you look back on your unmet goals you're not even sure what went wrong. Why did you lose your enthusiasm? Why was it so easy to get distracted and eventually completely derailed? Was it fear holding you back? Or did a lack of productivity derail you?

How can you examine every single factor that's holding you back and keeping you from living the life of your dreams? You see that your motivation and enthusiasm is not running at 100%, you want to learn how to get more done in less time, achieve more in your life, getting more free time, enjoying more success in life and being the happiest you've ever been!

Before we can even talk about motivation and productivity, you need to choose a goal.. This goal could be anything: Writing a book, starting a business, losing weight, making more money... the choice is yours.

For the purposes of this article, we are going to focus on achievement and success. For your first goal you may want to choose something related to those themes, as doing so will make the information to follow really speak to you.

Now, some people have one overriding goal that they've thought about a lot over the last several months or even years. If that sounds like you, then that's probably the goal you should choose.

Others, however, have several goals they'd like to achieve. The goals may seem roughly equal. If this sounds like you, then here's how to choose one goal...

After you've finished this article, I would like you to imagine yourself achieving the various goals that you have in mind. Really imagine the moment. Picture how you'll feel when you meet your goal. Imagine what other people would say to you.

Now, there's one goal that probably made you feel better and happier than any other goal. Obviously, that's the goal you should choose. Choose the one that has the most emotion attached to it.

If you do this little exercise and all the goals still feel roughly equal to you, then here's what to do...

If you're deciding between two goals, flip a coin. If you have more than two goals, then write them down on little slips of paper, put the papers in a hat, and draw randomly to decide which goal to tackle first.

Sometimes you'll randomly draw one goal and feel disappointed. If so, then you know that's not the goal to start with... and once you know your true feelings, you can then make a better decision. It's a way to "trick" yourself into choosing the right goal!
