The Master Skill of Success

The Master Skill of Success

Well,  the first week of the new year is here. Here is a quick post on how to reach your goals. At the bottom of this post I already shared with you my goals and resolutions for this year. Please share with me some of yours.

In a famous study in 1953, the graduating seniors of a major university were asked if they had written goals, and plans to achieve them, after they left the university.

It turned out that 3 percent had written goals and plans. 14 percent had goals but they were not written. The other 83 percent had no goals or plans at all, aside from getting out of university and going on vacation that summer.

Twenty years later in 1973, they followed up on the graduates in this study and asked them, among other things, about their financial situations. They found that the 3 percent of students who had clear, written goals and plans upon graduation were worth more than the entire 97 percent of graduates put together.

What does this experiment have to do with your fitness goals?

EVERYTHING

You see before we start an exercise plan, we must write down our fitness goals.

This automatically starts to program your subconscious towards achieving your goal.

Imagine that you have two drivers, each with a brand new Mercedes-Benz.

They both set to travel across the country toward a distant destination.

One sets off with no road map, navigation, nothing.

The second driver takes the time to plan his trip carefully using road map, navigation and getting advice from people who have traveled that path.

Which driver do you think will reach his destination on schedule??

The first driver might NOT even reach his destination.

Your fitness goals are pretty much the same.

People with clear, specific goals and plans that they work from each day, accomplish on the average, ten times the result as others who don’t have a clear idea of where they are going or when they want to get there.
