I believe this is the most important page of this site. Everything that I have put in here is meaningless with out this page. This is where action starts. This is where you will start taking control of your life. This is where you will become a meaningful specific rather from a wandering generality. So,

Congratulations!!!

Let me confess it took me longest to write this particular page. It took a lot of reading, research and soul-searching to find the most practical method that can really help you to develop your own goal program that will give you balanced success. I must admit that once again it was my mentor Zig Ziglar who helped me through is wonderful book Over the Top.

Here again I stress on the idea of balanced success. Most people in this world have one dimensional or two dimensional success. The reason is they set goals in only one area of their life and ignore the others. As a result they may appear successful in the eyes of others, but inside they are not really happy and content.

Therefore to enjoy balanced the most important objectives of your life should be to

  • Be Happy
  • Be Healthy
  • Be Prosperous
  • Be Secured
  • Have Peace of Mind
  • Have Friends
  • Enjoy Good Family Relationships
  • Have Hope for a Better tomorrow

The above objectives along with the purpose of your life that you have identified will form the basis for your Goal Program. (If you have not yet found the Purpose of your life go to the page “Find the purpose of you life,” on this website or click here.)

The best thing with the procedure that is suggested is that it is common for all types of goals. More over it will help you to develop a program encompassing every part of your life and will be targeted to help you achieve balanced success.

Warning: Developing a goal program is not a task that can be completed in a jiffy. It is time taking and requires patience. That might be the reason that many people never really get to really developing the goal program for their lives, even though they are impressed with the requirement of having one. So, the first goal that you will have to set is the goal of developing a goal program for your life. It may take you a couple of days to may be a week. But when we are talking about your life this time is worth investing.

Step No. 1: TAKE INVENTORY

How will you know where you want to go if you do not even know where you are today? Many people live a life of denial. They wear a mask of so called satisfaction, though somewhere inside they are sea of discontentment. Then there are others who have a lot, but still complaints and are totally thankless. Both these situations, I believe are negative. In order to take inventory, ask the following questions to yours elf and answer them clearly on a sheet of paper. (I suggest you download the free “My Goal Program Development Tool” that I have created for you).

  • What are the things in existence that makes me happy?
  • What is the status of physical health, mental health and spiritual health?
  • What is my financial position as of today?
  • How secured I feel, emotionally and financially?
  • Do I have peace of mind, or I suffer from discontentment?
  • What is the status of my relationship with family and friends?
  • What are the best things in my relationships and what is it that might be a problem?

Once you have answered the above questions giving reasonable thought you will be pretty aware of the current situation of your life. This current situation is your starting point, and from here you will go ahead.

Step No. 2: PREPARE A WILD LIST

Since you already know that what you have, next step is to prepare a wild list of all that you want. It is being called a wild list, as at this stage you will write down whatever you feel you want without, prejudging, or using reason that how it can be achieved. Write down as and when it comes to your mind. You do not try to structure it anyway. This ‘wish list’ will include everything material or intangible. Include the members of your family as they are ultimately taking this trip with you. I am sure they will be excited to do it with you, as this just might be the first time you have really ever asked that what they want.

However, while making this list, stretch your imagination a bit, and try to be as specific as possible at this stage. For example if your list includes a new house, go on to explain where the house will be, what kind of locality, how will it look, how many rooms it will have, what will be colour of the wall etc. Try to quantify and specify even if they are intangible goals. For example if it is about improving a particular relationship, try to explain, what you really mean by good relationship with that particular person. If it is about making new friendship, try to explain what are the qualities are you looking for in the friend, and what you really want out of the friendship.

Preparing a wild list is not a job that you can finish in a single day. I believe it takes at least 48 hours to may be a week. Keep on thinking, and as soon as anything comes in your mind note it down.

I hope you have understood what you are doing. You are making a list of rewards that you want in life. These are the rewards that will motivate you to take action, and give you direction, in which you must move.
