Setting goals is one thing we all do consciously or not consciously, to be on the conscious part this time. Goal Setting involves establishing specific, measurable and time-targeted objectives. Setting goals is a process that allows people to specify then work towards their own objectives - most commonly with financial or career-based goals, how ever most effective goals should be tangible, specific, realistic and have a time targeted for completion. There must be realistic plans to achieve the intended goal.
Take time to read this before you try and write down a whole lot of things..
SMART = GOALS not just goals but with a 100% result…
- S = Specific: A specific goal has a much greater chance of being accomplished than a general goal. To set a specific goal you must answer the six "W" questions:
*Who: Who is involved? *What: What do I want to accomplish? *Where: Identify a location. *When: Establish a time frame. *Which: Identify requirements and constraints. *Why: Specific reasons, purpose or benefits of accomplishing the goal.
EXAMPLE: A general goal would be, "I like to paint my room." But a specific goal would say, "I will paint my room pink."
- M = Measurable: Establish concrete criteria for measuring progress toward the attainment of each goal you set.
- A = Attainable: When you identify goals that are most important to you, you begin to figure out ways you can make them come true. You develop the attitudes, abilities, skills, and financial capacity to reach them. You begin seeing previously overlooked opportunities to bring yourself closer to the achievement of your goals.
You can attain most any goal you set when you plan your steps wisely and establish a time frame that allows you to carry out those steps. Goals that may have seemed far away and out of reach eventually move closer and become attainable, not because your goals shrink, but because you grow and expand to match them. When you list your goals you build your self-image. You see yourself as worthy of these goals, and develop the traits and personality that allow you to possess them.
- R= Realistic: a goal must represent an objective toward which you are both willing and able to work. A goal can be both high and realistic; you are the only one who can decide just how high your goal should be. But be sure that every goal represents substantial progress. A high goal is frequently easier to reach than a low one because a low goal exerts low motivational force. Some of the hardest jobs you ever accomplished actually seem easy simply because they were a labor of love.
- T= Time: With no time frame tied to a goal there's no sense of urgency. If you want to paint your room, when do you want to paint it? "Someday" won't work.
WARNING: if you haven’t done or set a realistic goal once before I will advice you to start with the ones that are of fun…
This is a little goal i work on just in one day…………….."i painted my room money free".

Create a PURPOSEFUL 2010
I ask you to do something simple this week.
Find a pen and paper.
Go to a place where you can sit in total silence.
Turn off all distractions (cell phones, radio, TV, internet).
Write down your answers to the following questions:
1. Who do I desire to BE in 2010? Choose 5 character traits you would like to embody more fully. Here are a few suggestions to get your mind moving: compassion, peace, understanding, courageous, passionate, loving, helpful, joyful…you get the idea.
2. How will I serve my community and country this year? Give consideration to your unique skills. Visualize yourself in your community in action. What change do you most desire to be part of? Write down everything that comes to your heart.
These two questions are plenty to get you started.
Be purposeful in planning the year ahead.
Don’t rush into 2010 simply chasing after money or trying to attain a big title. I am sure you can and will achieve that too. I beckon you to open to your HIGHER CALLING.
Infuse PURPOSE and SERVICE into your 2010 goals. If you do, you will find more satisfaction, peace and fulfillment than you have ever experienced. “The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.” (Mitch Albom.)
After completing this exercise post your answers in a place that you will see every morning when you wake up and every evening when you go to bed.
Keep your intentions in front of you consistently and you will be sure to accomplish what your heart truly desires.
Carry a copy of your desires in your pocket or purse. Read them regularly. Stay FOCUSED. Don’t lose sight of who you desire to be and how you desire to serve.
Defining my purpose with you,
Patricia Omoqui, The Thought Dr.

How do you use your imagination to create your ideal scene?
If you want to be inspired to create your best life, I'll share with you some of the ideas I've used.
1. Write out your top ten values. Write quickly and without editing. A value is what is important to you. For example, wealth, freedom, enjoying a great relationship, and creative self-expression are values. Your values are what you want to spend your time doing. If something is not important to you, it is not a value. It's not something you'll be interested in doing. A value is anything that excites you and makes you feel more alive.
2. Check if any of your values conflict. When values conflict, they nullify each other. For example, if you value freedom and also a good job, there is an apparent conflict. Sometimes you may have to conform too much in a job to be free. You reconcile this by finding out how you can enjoy financial security and freedom. When you can find how both values can work in harmony, you'll be able to integrate them.
3. Check if your values are something you're moving toward or whether you're trying to move away from something. For example, if wealth is a value, ask if you're choosing wealth because you're avoiding poverty. If you do, you'll be focusing on avoiding poverty. By thinking of poverty, you're staying in that loop because you get more of what you focus on. Instead find ways to make wealth attractive to you: imagine the relief of bills paid, the comfort of the new house, the thrill of the new sports car, and so on. This way you'll be pulled toward wealth and you won't focus on poverty at all.
4. Now rewrite your top ten values into goals. Write the goals in either the present or the past tense. If you write them in the future tense, you're subtly pushing them away. The future will always be one step ahead of you.
5. Finally, use these goals to describe your ideal scene. How do you want the goal to look as you approach the deadline for its realization.
6. Doing this exercise should give you a lift. As you write out your ideal scene, you should feel a thrill of anticipation. If your ideal scene does not excite you, then your goals are not compelling enough because they're based on values that you don't care about. In this case, you have to revisit your values and think about what it is that you really want for yourself.
7. Now your plan is to daily activate your subconscious mind to bring these goals into your experience. You'll do this by writing out your ideal scene the first thing in the morning every morning until it shows up in your life.
Imagine your life if you chose to design it!
