"Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Thoughts are things! And powerful things at that, when mixed with definiteness of purpose, and burning desire, can be translated into riches."
When you set a goal or state your intention, you set in motion a powerful process. Our minds--our brains, actually--can turn what we think about into reality. Quantum physics has shown that thoughts can change the properties of matter. That is a powerful force. But to use it effectively, your thoughts and ideas must be combined with a strong motivation to turn them into reality. Goals can do that for you, if you set goals that are compelling and emotionally powerful for you. Your brain can create your blueprint for achieving them, and hurry to attract the resources necessary to "make it so."
This week: Think about one main goal you would like to achieve this year. Make it something you feel strongly about. Make sure it is powerful and emotionally compelling. Write it down. Think about it in your spare moments. Let your brain create a plan for achieving it. Ask yourself : "What would I need to do next to reach this goal?" Let your brain supply the answer. Let your motivation to achieve that goal carry you forward. You are on your way!
