A quick reality check for your 2016 plans – 3 ways to seize control while there’s still time left

"So, Bookface, how are your plans for this year?" "Well, I filled my quota of cat pictures back in January..."Time for a quick reality-check. It’s now over a third of the way through 2016 – have your plans for this year materialised yet, or have you already told yourself “well, maybe next year…”

If that’s you, it’s time to be proactive and to begin designing your future.

Now, Woody Allen wasn’t far wrong when he said “If you want to make God laugh, tell him about your plans.”

In other words, not all designs work out as planned, so I’ve provided some guidelines that successful people use implicitly and which you can begin to use explicitly.

These are:

While following these systems doesn’t guarantee success, they will definitely show you what is workable and give you ways to get started on your hopes and dreams instead of waiting and hoping.

That’s it. Be proactive – do something definite and do it today…

The most powerful mental force

This time, I’d like to talk to you about one of the most powerful forces in our psychology. This is a force that can easily prevent change, or render it impermanent.

Or it can, if you use it correctly, make positive change so easy that the results are virtually inevitable.

Is that knowledge that you would find valuable? If so, then read on.

First, I want to ask you a question. What did you enjoy most about July? Was it the weather, some time away from work, or perhaps a special event or special person?

And if you had July to do all over again, what could you do differently to get more of that enjoyment?

These may seem, on the face of it, to be trivial questions. However, these are questions that few people ask themselves. And they are the basis of how you can make a better future out of the best of your past experiences.

This is one way to take advantage of the powerful force I was talking about, but far from the only way. Can you imagine now what it might be? No, it’s not NLP or hypnosis, though both of those systems can be directed to make use of this force.

Previously, I offered readers a gift that you can use to:

  • learn from the past 6 months
  • get the best out of the second half of 2010.

Some of you took advantage of that offer (a free resource accompanying my book Goal Mastery) and may have, unknowingly, bypassed a head-to-head conflict with this powerful force as a result.

What is it, then?

I’m not going to tell you directly, but I will make a deal with you. The first person to post the correct answer as a comment on this blog will get a free copy of my Goal mastery book. I’ll announce the winner here – and explain more about how this powerful force can be correctly harnessed and made to work positively.
