Road To Success by Gidget Giardino

We all start our lives small and grow considerably into our adult bodies. Along the way our brains develop similarly. The things we learn through our experiences make up much of who we become as adults. This is important to think about because when we set goals sometimes it is difficult to picture the outcome. Our goal has not fully developed in our minds. It has not grown into its full size yet. It is still a baby.

That baby goal needs to be loved, cherished, cared for, and most importantly it must be fed.
So, how do you do that?

Write it down. Use lots of details like where, when, how much, what color. Project what the outcome will look like once you've reached that goal. Visualize your goal as already achieved. Then take that written goal and write a few more copies of it. In your mind see the goal completed while you write. When you've finished, put one in your purse or wallet. Stick another in your sock drawer. Set one in the dashboard or console of your car. And, tape one to the mirror of your bathroom and look yourself in the eye as you read it out loud.

Every time you see your goal you need to close your eyes and visualize once again what it looks like accomplished. How does it feel? What does it smell like? Where are you standing? Who is there sharing it with you? Then, read your goal aloud.
