It’s a new year, which means most people will attempt a fresh round of goal setting. Most people will also struggle with achieving their goals. Why? It could be for a lot of reasons… maybe you’ve set too many goals, or unachievable goals, or maybe you don’t have the right plan and follow up in place. Whatever the reason may be, there’s a simple solution to making sure your goals are always reached… using your brain for what it was intended!
Our brains are incredibly powerful tools, if you know how they work and how to use them…
Our conscious brains are built like a series of processors in a computer, only capable of one conscious action or thought at a time. Knowing this allows you to use your brain’s processing power to help you achieve your goals:
Use your brain. Use the self-talk in your mind for positive, motivating discussions with yourself. Then use the reticular activating system in your subconscious to see opportunities for success unfold before your eyes. The rest is up to you and the choices you make.
