One of the first things you can do when you wake up each day is ask yourself, “What’s my goal for today?”
After you ask this question, sit or lie quietly until you get your answer. It usually doesn’t take long.
Your mind will spit out something like, “To make 5 sales.” Or “to run 3 miles in 21 minutes.” Or “to write 2800 words.”
And so on.
Dr. Maltz always taught that it isn’t just the long-range goals and targets that keep us creatively alive – it’s the daily goals as well.
If your mind is always focused on the top of the mountain, it’s easy to forget that where your feet are in the present – and what you’re doing in the present is important, too. It’s what leads you to the mountain peak.
One of the greatest things about having a daily goal is that it will help you to quickly develop a success consciousness – the feeling of confidence that, “Yes, I CAN win because I WIN EVERYDAY.”
When I talk about having the daily goal – I’m talking about finishing it. I’m talking about forming a goal that makes you stretch a bit – yet is still realistic. Setting a daily goal to write a 300-page book would be insane. And if you put that sort of stress on yourself, you’ll not only fail to achieve the goal – but you’ll feel like a failure, too.
You want a track record of daily success.
At the end of each day you want to be able to look back and say, “Yes, I made it. I did it. I fulfilled the goal I set for myself.”
Looking back at what you accomplished and having a sense of gratitude, even awe for what you accomplished, is key. It builds the winner’s edge within. It increases confidence. It proves to you that you were put on this earth to succeed – not to fail. Attracting success is a state of mind; so is failure.
Put yourself on the side of the winners by asking yourself each and every day, “What’s my goal for today?”
I assure you, if you do this, your life will begin to change the very first time you do this.
