A Foolproof Trick to Achieve Your Goals!
I am not sure when it happens, how it happens or why it happens – I set goals. At times I procrastinate or I wait until the last minute to take action.
What I know for sure is I will run the National Half Marathon (13.1 miles) in Washington, DC on Saturday, March 20, 2010. To give my best while running 13.1 miles it will take mental preparation, time management, a training schedule and of course, ACTION.
It’s as Old as Time
The foolproof trick to achieve your goals is to first believe that it is possible.
Today I made a decision I will run the National Half Marathon. Here is what’s really cool, it doesn’t matter what anyone thinks, it’s possible.
What is the one goal you want to achieve?

3 Key Ideas to Blast off Now
A Half Marathon (13.1 miles) will require the average person to run approximately 205 miles over a 10-week period.
Today I ran 3 miles toward my goal of 205 miles. I recognize my achievement for taking action toward my goal.
George S. Patton, U.S. Army General and 1912 Olympian said it best:
“Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired.”
Here is how you can immediately achieve your goals:
The law of believf is whatever you tell yourself over and over again you will eventually believe. Decide to believe right now that you will achieve your 2010 Goals. Believe that you have all the skills and resources you need right now to be successful.
Take time today to write out a step-by-step plan to achieve your goals. I admire the quote from Jim Rohn “now is the time to fix the next 10 years.” Your plan does not have to be a fancy document nor does it have to follow a specific structure. Your plan must have specific steps, measureable results and a timeline.
Now is the time to get started. Mike Litman is known for saying “you don’t have to get it right, you just have to get going.” Take a baby step, do something today and then do it again tomorrow and the next day toward your goals.
