How to magnetically achieve your goals without useless resolutions

How to magnetically achieve your goals without useless resolutions

Every January millions around the globe make their New Year’s Resolutions – and like a flash in the pan, they sizzle out of existence.

We tend to make vague statements like “I want to lose 20 pounds this year,” and next year wonder why our bellies bulge to the point where you can’t see a certain appendage.

There’s nothing wrong with thinking about your goals, but the way you’ve probably been doing it doesn’t lead to the most important thing – taking action and accomplishing your goals.

The path to action is making your vague thought as concrete as the Hoover Dam.

When you solidify your dreams and goals, they have a much higher chance of becoming your new reality.

Here’s how.

Write a letter to yourself about how your new life looks like after experiencing 2017.

Date the letter January 31st, 2018.

This new letter will act as a magnet, pulling you towards your goals by the end of 2017.

I know what you’re thinking. This is a bunch of mumbo-jumbo foo foo crap.

This is not the “Secret.”

The Secret gets you all hot and bothered without a clear path of what to do next.

Like visiting a strip club while locked in a straight jacket.

I’ve made at least $1 million a year since applying this technique, and I believe I can help you accomplish your goals.

Earlier, I told you that you need to make your goals tangible…concrete.

You don’t make concrete by willy nilly mixing ingredients.

You make concrete from exact ratios of coarse rock, limestone, clay, sand, and water.

The same goes for your goals.

Instead of saying “I want to lose 20 pounds this year,” you state your goal in more detail, plus how you’re doing to do it.

The more exact, the more concrete your goal – and the more likely you’ll accomplish it.

So “lose 20 pounds this year” turns into “I lost 2 pounds every month in 2017 by cutting out sugar, and following the Paleo Diet.”

Now let’s take this a step further.

A year from now, how do you feel since losing that 20 pounds?

I bet you feel fantastic! People you haven’t seen for awhile compliment you on your physique. Those old clothes in the back of your closet fit again. From dad bod to beach bod.

So now your new goal in the letter addresses to yourself on January 31st says:

“I lost 2 pounds every month in 2017 by cutting out sugar, and following the Paleo diet. I got so many compliments on my new look. I don’t have to struggle to fit in my old jeans. In fact, I went out and bought a whole new wardrobe for the leaner, meaner me. My waist is back to a 32, and I had a great shirtless 14-day vacation on the Ko Phi Phi Islands in Thailand.”

See how we’ve gone from vague to concrete?

By chunking up your goal from “20 pounds in 2017” to “2 pounds a month,” you’ve also made yourself accountable throughout the year.

That’s a trick to beat the procrastination monkey that’s on your back.

Don’t forget the all-important step of step of how you accomplished your goal (Paleo diet).

If you don’t know, then say something like how you researched 30 minutes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:00-8:30 instead of watching the Kardashians (good lord I have no idea when that show really starts, nor do I want to know).

As you write out your letter, your mind’s eye will begin to see the new you.

You will see your new life forming from a swirling mass of jumbled thoughts like paint to canvass.

The goal you just read is one of mine.

Health, wealth, love…those are all fair game too.

Make your goals lofty.

Write them down now to act as your magnetic treasure map to health, wealth, and happiness in 2017.

Trade smart,
