No matter who you are or what you do everyone accomplishes tasks by setting goals and working toward them. It does not matter if the person is aware of their goals or not, because they will still use the same approaches to reach them.
"The more intensely we feel about an idea or a goal, the more assuredly the idea, buried deep in our subconscious, will direct us along the path to its fulfillment." - Earl Nightingal Goals come from within a person and are stored primarily in the subconscious. When a person continually tells themselves they will never accomplish anything this message is stored in the subconscious section of their mind. The consequence of this mindset is the person unconsciously acts to fulfill the thought of accomplishing nothing.
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars. ~Les Brown Goal Setting : setting goals creates a gradual source of mental momentum that enables an individual to accomplish anything. In addition, utilizing the process of subconscious "storage" enables a person to completely change their mindset.
The road leading to a goal does not separate you from the destination; it is essentially a part of it. ~Charles DeLint Getting Started : To find out what is important in your life you need to think! You must prioritize what you really want in life and not let everyday events distract you. Once you act on what you think is important than you are that much closer to reaching your goals!
Everything in life requires planning, whether it is done at the last minute or not. Plan or Planning : Planning allows a person to map out their goals in a realistic way. When a person has huge amounts of motivation, it means nothing if they do not turn the motivation into action. This is the time when a person must think in detail how they are going to use their time to accomplish their goals.
My main focus is on my game. Focus on the moment and move forward. To help be in the moment you need to focus on you internal state, and just watch it.

10 ways to achieve your goal! By Planning The Right Goals!
"To know yourself is the first and most important step to pursuing your dreams and goals." – Stedman Graham 1) Defining what you want : It is the critical first step in almost any situation. "You can have anything you really want but you cannot have everything you want."
2) Having a good plan of attack. Ask yourself : What do I know about this? What information do I have? What information do I need? Where can I get it? What skills do I need to master? What other resources should I use? Is this the best way to do it, or is there some other way?
"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." – Ralph Waldo Emerson 3) Optimistic Thinking : "Optimistic thinking has sometimes gotten a bad rap as being unrealistic, but research has found that we can indeed live happier, healthier, and more successful lives if we can learn to discover opportunities in problems."
4) Stating each goal as a positive statement: Express your goals positively – 'Execute this technique well' is a much better goal than 'Don't make this stupid mistake.'
"Let's be realists, let's dream the impossible." Che Guevara 5) Setting Stretch Goal : It is an objective that cannot be achieved by incremental or small improvements but require extending oneself to the limit to be actualized. When you set a stretch goal for yourself you know that you may not meet it 100%, but by coming close you will likely achieve extraordinary results.
By breaking down your goals in smaller, workable units, you are more likely to make them come true. Remember, even the great ones had to start somewhere. 6) Setting a precise goal: Putting in dates, times and amounts so that you can measure achievement. If you do this, you will know exactly when you have achieved the goal, and can take complete satisfaction from having achieved it.
Goals should be difficult enough to be interesting, but not so difficult that you can't reach them 7) Set realistic goals: Alternatively you may set goals that are too high, because you may not appreciate either the obstacles in the way or understand quite how much skill you need to develop to achieve a particular level of performance. Keeping goals small and incremental gives more opportunities for reward.
Goals should be attainable, and should be relevant - that is, they should contribute in a significant way to the major objectives you're trying to achieve 8) Set performance goals, not outcome goals: If you base your goals on personal performance, then you can keep control over the achievement of your goals and draw satisfaction from them. Effective goals are clear, measurable, specific, and based on behavior, not outcomes.
The key is not to prioritize what's on your schedule, but to schedule your priorities. Stephen Covey 9) Set priorities: When you have several goals, give each a priority. This helps you to avoid feeling overwhelmed by having too many goals, and helps to direct your attention to the most important ones.
"Life's up and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals – Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want." ~ Marsha Sinetar 10) Think about how you can accomplish your goal. When you think of possible solutions you force your mind and subconscious mind to find opportunities that will help you achieve the desired results. If you cannot accomplish your goal, you need to ask if that’s your right plan!
15 ways to achieve your goal! By Taking The Right Action!
The two rules of procrastination: 1) Do it today. 2) Tomorrow will be today tomorrow. ~Author Unknown 1)Stop procrastinating. If you don’t get started, how you can achieve your goal! If you’re used to procrastination, being bullheaded about a goal can seem scary at first. Try to set a schedule and then reward yourself each time you meet it.
Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. ~Jim Ryun 2) Start inculcating the habit of liking something. The most difficult thing is to LIKE something useful. You need to think big, when you are setting goals, think great thoughts. You must also crystallize your thinking, make it clear to you first, then write it down.
Never underestimate your problem or your ability to deal with it. Robert H. Schuller 3) Don’t underestimate yourself. It’s tempting to sometimes just slack off, or let yourself off too easy. The fear of failure is sometimes to blame for setting our goals too low. How often have we said, “I don’t really want to volunteer for that project ‘cause I might screw it up. And then my colleagues will make fun of me.”
If you don't think every day is a good day, just try missing one. ~Cavett Robert 4) Be positive when stating your goals. Instead of saying, “I am not going to miss my exercise routine today,” say “I’m really busy, so I’ll probably just make time for 20 minutes on the treadmill.” Stating your goal positively will help you view it as a good thing to do, and not as a byproduct of what you had to avoid.
"Our success is due, in part, to not just an ability but a willingness to look at things differently,“ Michael Del 5) Look at things differently : People can learn to reorganize and take advantage of opportunities that others are convinced don't exist. You don't have to be a genius, or a visionary, or even a college graduate to think unconventionally. You just need a framework and a dream."
If you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else. ~Lawrence J. Peter 6) Spread out your goals. So maybe we do have certain general goals that apply to all areas of our lives. If you say, “I want to be a successful dad,” then try to make goals towards the development of your family life while still keeping an eye out for ways to improve your career and other areas of your life.
"A goal properly set is halfway reached." - Abraham Lincoln 7) Writing it down. Putting your goal down on paper is more than just memorizing it. You are actually confirming your willingness to make it come true. A written list of goals is an effective reminder of what you need to do and once you’re done, a good review of your accomplishment.
"For me, goals are my road map to the life I want. They have helped me accomplish things I once thought were impossible." - Catherine Pulsifer 8) Affirming it. Affirmation is really more than writing down, “I am going to buy my $750,000 home by Christmas” twenty times. It’s actually being conscious not only of your thought processes, but also of your acts during the day.
Asking good questions is productive, positive, creative, and can get us what we want. 9) Effective questioning : The effective questions are questions that are powerful and thought provoking. Effective questions are open-ended and not leading questions. They are not "why" questions, but rather "what" or "how" questions. For example: "What do you think the problem is?"
Discovering what works requires that you understand the casual links between inputs and outputs. 10) Experimentation : It means trying something new and unproven – and acknowledging that you cannot reliably predict the outcome.
"Whoever wants to reach a distant goal must take small steps." - Helmut Schmidt 11) Sufficient Respect For Complexity - If the goal involves complex work, make sure that you don't over-commit yourself. Complex work can take an unpredictably long time to complete (particularly if you have to learn how to do the task "on the job").
Results come from exploiting opportunities, not solving problems 12) Focus on Results : Finally, when you concentrate your energies on achieving the results that you have been hired to accomplish, the results that others expect of you, you develop the reputation for performance and achievement that inevitably leads to the perception of charisma.
"Instead of worrying about what people say of you, why not spend time trying to accomplish something they will admire." - Dale Carnegie 13) Regularity of Feedback - Monitor your progress towards your goals regularly to maintain your sense of momentum and enthusiasm, and enjoy your progress towards those goals.
Success depends on both what you do and how you do it. 14) Being creatures of pattern and habit : We unknowingly achieve success and construct our failures. Taken together, the three guiding principles – 1) failure is not an accident; 2) feedback is the foundation of success; and 3) success has a structure - can help you change old habits of thinking and your success hit rate.
"Success is a journey, not a destination." ~ Ben Sweetland 15) Success through conscious effort : Success is achieved when a stretch goal is met overcoming failures, problems and difficulties by conscious effort and by application of capabilities, resources and methods. If you cannot achieve your goal, keep changing the way of your action to the right approach!
"Goals are not only absolutely necessary to motivate us. They are essential to really keep us alive." - Bill Copeland When you have achieved a goal, take the time to enjoy the satisfaction of having done so. Absorb the implications of the goal achievement, and observe the progress you have made towards other goals. If the goal was a significant one, reward yourself appropriately. All of this helps you build the self-confidence you deserve!
