Part 2 of 5 - How "Pipe Dreams" Can Become Realities!

CATCH UP WITH YOURSELF
Now's the time to evaluate your life and your desires. Go ahead and test yourself - nobody's looking. Try to find out what your inner desires really are. Once you know, you can formulate a plan of action, and then achieve your goals.
Right now, write down three things you want. Don't spend time thinking about them - just write them down. You may be surprised at what you want. Can you see any relation to the types of desires most sought for?
What accomplishment are you most proud of? What make you happy enough to be content, to feel totally relaxed, and to slide back with a smile on your face.
Without dwelling on failures, mistakes, or past ill feelings, quickly list the important accomplishments or your life. Think about the places you went to, the relationships you encountered, the education you received. Consider your job changes and positions, and the achievements related to work.
Put a star next to the most important accomplishments of your life. Is there any correlation with the list of the three things you want most?
Before you go any further with your life, make a list for your future. Write it down - don't just think it. What would you like to accomplish in the next ten years? A new house, a high-paying position, a home in a new city, a trip around the world?
Break that list down into those things you'd like to accomplish in the next five years. Then make one further division into the next six months. What can you do in the next few months to further you towards your long-term goals?
My most important desires are:
In my lifetime, the most important things I've accomplished:
If I looked back on my lifetime in 20 years, I'd like to have accomplished:
Within 10 years, I'd like to achieve:
Within 5 years, I'd like to achieve:
In the next six months to a year, these are the things I'm going to do to work towards by goals:
Regardless of your family commitments or your personal relationships; regardless of your business enterprises or any false sense of achievement, what do you really want?
Give yourself credit for your past accomplishments, and give yourself credit for your future achievements. You can and will attain all your goals, both long-term and short-term if you approach them in a step-by-step fashion and if you believe that they are worthwhile for you.
YOU ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON IN YOUR LIFE
Although you can be considerate of your environment and all the people in it, first consider yourself. Your well-being, your happiness, your success. Make a pact with yourself right now that you will achieve your goals. And make them realistic to reach. Then one by one, make your own life the success it deserves.
FIRST STEP - RELAX
An important step in achieving goals is to be able to relax. You'll get nowhere is your body and mind are nervous and jumping from one place or idea to another. In order to focus on your goal you must center your being.
Relaxation is the balance of the mental, spiritual and physical aspects of yourself. Set aside time each day for deep relaxation. Not sleep, but relaxation. The state of deep relaxation is a state of meditation. There are no thoughts in your mind. There are no physical ills or discomforts. You breathe in deeply, allowing the lungs to fill with fresh air, and you exhale all used and stale air. The blood circulates amply throughout every part of your body. You drift through space, ever towards your true destiny.
Exercise or sports is a good way to get into relaxation. The body needs physical stimulation to pump blood into all its extremities and to give the heart a good workout. Exercise is a wonderful way to let the mind relax, as you place your thoughts on the way your body moves. For many people, sports and exercise are enjoyable ways to feel alive, youthful, and fulfilled.
Then take time to relax. Lie down on your back with your arms out, palms up. Your feet should be about two feet about. You might clench your muscles first, then relax them. Allow your thoughts to drift, but don't get caught in them. Watch them go by, as if they belong to somebody else.
If you have a special problem, tuck that in the back of your mind - don't dwell on it up front. Let yourself and your emotions go. Breathe out the negative feelings and emotions; breathe in positive, life-giving air. Float freely. Relax. ASSUME THE BEST. Expect to achieve; expect to accomplish your desires; expect to win. Accept less, but push on to attain more. The higher your goals, the further you'll go.
The moon is no problem, nor are the neighboring planets. Soon human beings will see close-ups of other star and galaxies. Don't go for less that your full potential. Shoot for the universe. You owe yourself nothing less.
And aside from the universe, keep yourself on Earth, in your office or studio, working closer to those goals you want to attain.
You have a right to be happy. You have the means to be successful. You can succeed in what you desire.
Always keep in mind the fact that you are in transit, attaining your goals, moving through life as though you are an actor, and the setting is a stage.
Keep your thoughts firmly planted on prosperity, good fortune and lucky breaks. Assume that you will, in fact, nearly have accomplished your goals. It is with that attitude that successful people achieve.
