Goal Setting Vs. Goal Achievement

28 Jul

As we discussed before “Goal Setting” is the number one success principle. Setting your goals is the first step you need to take towards achieving your goals. The Second step you need to take is to WRITE them. In fact I don’t believe in unwritten goals because I think they can’t be achieved.

When we are about to change a habit -for example- we can’t change it correctly if we did not change it inside our brains first.

In order to achieve a positive change in your life you must perform it in your brain then start to make it happen in
reality.( I will discuss How to do that later.
Now, Think About This Situation: Continue reading

  • What is the gender mix in your audience? Sometimes my audiences will be 50:50 males and females. Sometimes my audiences will be 95 percent men or 95 percent women. This gender breakdown will influence how you design your remarks and make your points.
