Achieving Goals Starts By Establishing Focus

Once you accept that other people are constantly fighting for your attention, you will understand why achieving your own goals requires focus.


Become Your Own Life Coach

Ultimately, many of us have the same big goals relating to how we want to live our lives. In order to achieve them, we need to break them down into smaller goals that allow us to motivate ourselves.


No Goals Means No Success

We are constantly bombarded by external messages, including the internet, media, and our phones. Carve out time for personal reflection so you can actively think about your life goals.

Vague Goals are Worthless

Big lofty goals are often ineffective because there is no specific direction on how to achieve them. If you want to lose weight, become rich, or get a dream job, specific goals with obvious direction provide a structure for success.


The Challenge of Modern Goal Setting

Why is setting goals in today’s world so much different than in years past? The internet and mobile technology have changed society forever.


Take Back Control of Your Senses

You don’t need to isolate yourself from the world or the large corporations battling for your time, but you should find a balance that allows you to live your life while also establishing boundaries for yourself and personal reflection.

Introduction to the Seven Spheres, Self-Control, and Health Goals

To truly be successful, we should not focus on one goal and completely ignore the other aspects of our lives. For example, making lots of money at the expense of your health is a bad idea. True success in life will require a balanced approach.


Relationships, Lifelong Learning, and Creativity Goals

Forming and maintaining relationships is essential for personal growth, as are lifelong learning and the ability to express yourself using your creativity.


Leisure and Wealth Goals

Everyone should be able to enjoy their free time in any way they want, but when it comes to personal wealth, it’s important to know how much is enough.


Seven Levels of Goals for Each Sphere

Within each of the seven spheres of life, you should identify these seven aspects and plan how you will go about achieving your goals on a daily basis.



What is your vision for how you see yourself, and the amount of influence you have on your own life?



What goals do you have for your personal health, and how do you want to accomplish them through daily habits and long- and short-term goals?



What are your views on relationships, especially as it pertains to yourself and your personal happiness? How can you support your goals for relationships on a daily basis?


Lifelong Learning

Do you believe you are limited by your IQ or your age? Do you still have the desire to learn? The goals you set for yourself in terms of lifelong learning can impact your personal happiness and professional success well into the future.



Creating something to share with the world can be a satisfying experience, but what might you create? Setting goals related to personal creativity can impact your personal and professional happiness.



What do you do every day to have some fun outside of work? It’s okay to set goals for yourself that focus on leisure because they help you find a balance within your life.



How much wealth will it take for you to be happy? Setting goals you can work on every day to support short- and long-term goals can lead to financial success in the long run.


The Most Powerful Form of Influence

Advertising is so effective at influencing people because of repetition. By inundating an audience with their own goals, corporations can impact the choices people make.
