Relationship Between Your Goals And Your Reading Skills
Who are the happiest people you know? Are they the ones with the most money? Usually not. The happiest people are those who are always on their way to someplace. Consider this:
"SUCCESS IS THE PROGRESSIVE REALIZATION OF POSITIVE, PREDETERMINED COALS"
A person is most happy when they are progressively pursuing a goal or objective. It is the journey that denotes success. You cannot reach a goal then stop your progress and still feel successful. If you stop striving, you are stagnant. Successful people always seem to find the means to get what they want. As the saying goes, "If they need money, they get money; if they need people, they get people; if they need ideas, they get ideas." It is also true that like attracts like. Act successful, do the things successful people do, and you will be successful. These actions develop confidence, belief in yourself and, most importantly, they create desire, which will enable you to pursue your goals regardless of obstacles, resistance, circumstances or the opinions and actions of others. People who don't really succeed in life, do so because they lack direction and motivation. Without a goal as a guide, you are like a ship at sea with no rudder. You will end up wherever the seas and wind take you; you have no choice. Be the master of your own fate. Co wherever you wish. Become whatever you choose. Have whatever you desire.
Use what you have learned to open doors. There is no barrier between you and whatever you may want to become. Your Rapid Reading skills will enable you to build a strong, successful future.
Follow these directions and they will guarantee your success.
1. State what you want to accomplish in your life. What do you really want? Regardless of the obstacles and assuming money were no object, what do you really want and what would you do with your time?
2. How long will it take you to realize each of the goals you have written in step 1? A goal without a deadline is a daydream. Deadlines are essential to create the drive necessary for success.
3. Determine what short range or intermediate goals you may set and achieve that will keep you moving in the direction of the major goals you are pursuing. Even the movement toward and accomplishment of small goals is motivational and exciting. These make the continued pursuit of your major goals endurable and much more enjoyable.
4. How much effort are you willing to put into the pursuit of your goals? If there are limitations, you are after the wrong goal. Any obstacle between you and what you want can be removed by having the short range goals directed toward that removal. If it is what you want, no price is too high and no obstacle to high, wide or deep.
5. Keep your goals - Short, Intermediate, and long Range - in your mind's eye, always. Know what needs to be done, always. Consider a camera taking a picture. If the camera is 10% out of focus, the picture will be at least 10% out of focus. If your goal is out of your mind's eye 10% of the time, you reduce your chance of reaching that goal by at least 10%. Remember, "Anything you vividly imagine. . " Keep your goals in focus.
