Head Games

Accomplishing new goals and goals in general really is a mindset thing.  For you to accomplish a goal it requires you to first set a goal.  (this is where most people fail)  They never set a goal.  (Shoot me an email if you would like a copy of my goal setting program) Once you set the goal you have to lay a game plan on what you will do differently to accomplish the goal.  A goal requires you to do something different, if it didn’t require something different you would have already accomplished it.

This morning as I think about the 10K I am about to run, I am taking a different approach and doing something different in my mind.   For those of you who dont know.  10K is 6.2 miles.  I have run this distance many many times, and even longer runs.  My body is conditioned to run this far, and since I have done it so many times I can do it pretty easily.  But today my goal is to set a new PR (Personal Record).  For me to do this my mindset will be different, it has to be different, because I have yet to accomplish the PR time that I plan on hitting today.  When I normally allow myself to slow up (I will remember its in my head that my legs hurt).  When I say its only a race and who really cares (I will remember that I will care, when I cross the finish line).

So most of our success and failure in life is in our own head and our mindset.  Today for me to accomplish the goal I will not allow my mind to play games on me.

What goals are you allowing your mind to keep you from accomplishing?  The great Napoleon Hill said it this way: “Anything the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve”

To your success and your future.
