Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : April 26th 2015 Contents thoughts and beliefs about that goal.
Beyond belief journal
Get a notebook to keep notes. You
will complete the exercises in your
journal, write down thoughts and
ideas, and refer back to it in upcom-
Review the various life areas listed
in the pie chart and imagine some of
the areas where you would like to see
a shift in your life.
Choose goals that are possible and
realistic, yet seem almost impossible
or out of reach. For instance, if your
goal is to be a professional pianist but
you have no music background, achiev-
ing this goal in two months is not real-
istic. But learning to play piano in two
months (even at a beginner level) is
possible and realistic.
Winning the lottery is NOT a good
example of a realistic goal. Choose goals
where YOU are in charge of making
happen, like moving into a new home
or buying a car.
Exercise: Write down and select your
goal. Imagine three to five possible goals
from the life areas listed. Choose one
goal from that list and write it down.
For example: My goal---buy a new
car. Write this in your journal for this
Now imagine all the thoughts, ideas,
facts and beliefs you have about this
goal. What is possible and what is
impossible? What is positive and neg-
ative? What feels good, what feels bad?
What stops you?
Take a few minutes, and write in
your journal, all of your thoughts and
beliefs about this goal.
Example: My goal: buy a new car
My thoughts and beliefs: not enough
money, don t deserve it; can t afford
it; my credit is bad; they will never
approve a loan; it would be nice; my
kids would be happy; spouse may be
upset; I want a hybrid; my husband
wants an SUV; we will fight about it;
I don t have time to look.
Take note of where you feel a lack
of power, freedom, or full self-expres-
sion. Note any thoughts that cause
unpleasant feelings. Write them down.
Ask yourself: What do I GAIN by
staying where I am now? What are the
benefits of not reaching my goal? What
do I LOSE if I reach my goal? What
must I give up?
We will return to these
notes later on.

ting and reach-

Characteristics of a well-
formed goal (outcome)
• Positively stated
• Specific and measurable
• Self achievable
Positive and clear
One of the first steps in manifesting
your goal is to "get clear" about what
you want and to state it in the positive.
People often state what they do NOT
I do NOT want to work here.
I do NOT want to be poor.
Your subconscious ignores the word
NOT. When you have a thought such
as "I do NOT want to be sad" your
subconscious understands this to mean
"I want to be sad." And then your sub-
conscious goes to work to act on this
suggestion, and find ways to bring it
By focusing on what you don t want,
you subconsciously create more of what
you don t want. Focus on what you DO
want. This programmes your subcon-
scious mind to take action and bring
what you want into reality.
I DO want to feel comfort.
I DO want to work in a fun career.
I DO want to enjoy financial free-
Specific and measurable
Make the goal measurable. How will
you know when you reach it?
For example: Goal---I want more
Having one more penny fulfills this

2. FINANCE MANAGER
3. HUMAN RESOURCE MANAGER
4. NATIONAL TRANSPORT MANAGER
5. RECORDS MANAGER
6. INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS - GRIEVANCE OFFICER

Would you like to become powerful beyond belief?
Which part of your life would you like to improve:
better health, better relationships, better finances,
better love life?
Do you have a dream you would like to come true?
Do you feel stuck, as if something is stopping you?
I have been asked to provide valued information on
how people can learn to access their inner resources
and tap into the power within themselves. Successful
people have used the tools which will be presented
in the next couple of articles to access their inner
power and achieve extraordinary results. You, the
reader, will understand that success does not come
from other people or external situations but that
"true power comes from within."
A commitment will have to be made to set aside
one hour each week to review the material and to
spend a few minutes each day to practice the exercise
of the week. The exercises provided in this series
will allow you to transform unproductive thoughts
and beliefs which may be preventing you from reach-
ing your goals.
Identify goals for different areas of your life; describe
the elements of a well-formed outcome; select a
specific goal to pursue during this course; apply the
Well-Formed Outcome criteria to your goal; list your
