The picture above is the first ever self-development book I bought back in April of 2015 because I was searching for answers. I started questioning a lot of things in my life because I was just so unhappy and kept using my color as a reference to why I wasn’t successful here in Thailand.
The great part about this book I like is the goal-setting, let alone having a goals book. This is how you can speed up your achievement. Do you need to necessarily buy the book? Ofcourse not, but writing it on loose sheets of paper is a gateway to losing them, too. Buy a three-ring binder, a scrapbook, or a journal to keep all your content in.
Write a goal at the top of the page and illustrate it with pictures, words, and phrases that you can possibly fit onto the pages. You can get these pictures from a variety of sources from google, to magazines, catalogs, and even travel brochures that depict your goal as if it’s already achieved. As new goals and desires emerge, simply add them to your list and your Goals Book. Review the pages of your Goals Book at least once every day.
Carry the most important goal in your wallet. Write it on the back of a business card….even create businesses cards depicting who you want to become like….Arsenio Buck – International Consultant & Public Speaker.
If you leave it in your pocket, wallet, or purse – every time you would open your wallet, it would be there…reminding you of your most important goal.
Also, writing yourself a check. Oprah had Jim Carrey on her show back in 1997 when he was struggling getting buy as a young Canadian actor. He would drive his car up to Mulholland Drive in Los Angeles and while sitting there looking at the city below, he would dream of his future. He wrote himself a check for 10$ million, dated it Thanksgiving 1995, and added the notation “for action services rendered,” and carried it in his wallet from that day forth.
With the huge successes of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb & Dumber, his asking price had risen to $20 million per picture. When Carrey’s father died in 1994, he placed the $10 million check into his father’s coffin as a tribute to the man who had both started and nurtured his dreams of being a star.
