In my mid 20s, I was obsessed with the power of the subconscious mind.
I read many books and attended several seminars learning how to unleash the power of the subconscious mind.
One of the methods I’ve learnt was to write down my goals.
I did that.
I listed down the things you wanted to achieve in a notebook. I wrote down how much I wanted to earn every month, what car I wanted to drive, what house I wanted to live in.
After that, I totally forgot about it.
Few years later, I found the book when I moved house.
I was amazed that I had achieved all the things listed in it.
I literally had shivers down my spine when I saw it. I had been my own fortune teller!
Goal writing is not just for planning, it is a way to impress upon the subconscious mind, which has the power to bring us what we want.
There are some techniques in goal writing.
1. Write it in the present tense as if you have it right now. For example, I earn $10000 a month, I live in a 4 bedroom condominium, etc.
2. The goal you write down should resonate with you. If you write ‘I earn one million dollars a month’ but you can’t really resonate with it, it will just instill doubt in you.
The language of your subconscious mind is image and emotion. If you instill doubt, it will return you with doubt.
Give it a try. Write down the goals that resonate with you on a piece of paper and keep it. Then let go and work towards the goals.
Don’t be surprised when it works. 😉
