How to Set New Years Goals You’ll Actually Achieve | Part 5
If you’re just now joining us, click here to start at Day 1 of our series on How to Set New Years Goals.
One of the often-overlooked components to your goal setting success is the quality of your mental game.
Do you believe in your goal?
Do you believe in your ability to achieve it?
Do you think you deserve to achieve it?
Do you expect to achieve it?
This topic is much to in-depth to cover in a single blog post. It’s a subject that requires a lot of introspection on your part…. a journey that, once begun, will continue throughout your life. You see, as you set and achieve greater and greater goals you must always be prepared to become a better and better person. That’s what goal setting is all about. That’s what goals help us do: they help us become better…. the very best version of ourselves.
Believe me when I say: If you want to achieve your ideal life, be prepared to do some serious personal development along the way.
To help you get started on your journey I’m going to share my 5 Favorite Personal Development Books.
Want to achieve your New Years Goals? Today’s homework is to add these 5 books to your personal library and READ THEM over the next 12 months! So here they are:
Maximum Achievement: Strategies and Skills That Will Unlock Your Hidden Powers to Succeed, by Brian Tracy: My ultimate all-time favorite personal development book! Read this book… study it, absorb it, and be prepared to take a quantum leap in your ability to achieve the life you want.
Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting: The Astonishing Power of Feelings, by Lynn Grabhorn: My personality is far from being “touchy feely”… so when someone first suggested I get this book, which contains the subtitle of “The Astonishing Power of Feelings”, I laughed them off. Yeah okay… thanks, but I don’t need all that mushy stuff thankyouverymuch! Oh how WRONG I was! Learn how the emotions you focus on (your feelings) create your reality. Learn how to focus on the right feelings to attract and create the right outcomes in your life. I’m actually in the process of re-reading this one right now… it’s become a favorite of mine, for sure!
Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead, by Brene Brown: This was another book that took me a while to get on board with. Why be vulnerable when you can be strong? Learn how vulnerability and taking risk is actually the truest form of courage — how being willing to step OUT of your comfort zone and put yourself on the line can lead to some of the greatest accomplishments and rewards of your life!
The Slight Edge: Turning Simple Disciplines into Massive Success and Happiness, by Jeff Olson: You are always moving. Every minute of every day you are either moving closer to the version of your ideal self or you are moving further away from it. Which direction you move is up to you! This book will teach you how even the tiniest of decisions… the most insignificant of habits… will create the future reality you live in, whether you’re aware of them or not!
The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster: Why Now Is the Time to #JoinTheRide, by Darren Hardy: Entrepreneurship, in any realm, is a tough gig. Sometimes you just need to hear from someone who’s been there, done that and isn’t going to sugarcoat it for you… and Darren Hardy is that someone. His no-nonsense approach to preparing you for the inevitable challenges and rewards are entrepreneurism is a must-read.
