Napoleon Hill wrote "The Imagination is the most marvellous, miraculous, and inconceivably powerful force the world has ever known". He went on to say "It takes no more effort to demand abundance and prosperity than to accept misery". You need to develop a prosperous mind set, and re-evaluate all of the beliefs that limit your wealth. Alexander Pope said "We have seen the enemy and they are us". The creation of wealth is a science, if you do certain things you will get rich! To help you along the way I would like to send you two classic e-books. The first is by Wallace Wattles entitled "The Science of Getting Rich", the second book is "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill. I have heard it said that one's wealth is directly proportional to the number of times you have read "Think and Grow Rich". I hope that these gifts provide the inspiration and momentum to enable you to make an "explosive jump" in your ability to create wealth, prosperity and abundance. Please e-mail me at Trevor@IntelligentLifestyles.co.uk to get your two e-books. Alternatively, you can subscribe to my newsletter, and I will send the books to all my subscribers. You will get the books quicker though if you e-mail me directly, (but please subscribe to my newsletter as well). Don't forget to request your free coaching session and I will phone you back to schedule it.
If you have followed my instructions below you should have some really fantastic inspiring goals, but you may feel a little daunted by the sheer immensity of the goals. You need to break the goals down into more manageable chunks or "milestones". A favourite maxim of mine is "Life yard by yard is hard, life inch by inch is a cinch!" Break the big goal down into 6 smaller goals or milestones, that when achieved would mean that your reached your big goal almost by accident, or a as by-product of achieving the smaller goals. It's a good idea to reward yourself for completing each milestone, just to keep the momentum going. Once again a coach (www.lifecoachingonline.com) can help you with this by asking powerful questions like "Imagine you have got your goal, what would have had to have happened in order for you to get it?"
Milestones can be chunked down into "Action Steps" which are accomplished each week to move you closer to the goal. An action step should be challenging, achievable, in line with your values,
appropriate to the goal or milestone, and clear. If you are stuck for ideas try asking yourself what you would have to do in the next week to make you feel back on track.

Having used the Wheel of Life exercise (described below) to decide which areas of your life you want to improve you now need to ask yourself "If this area in my life was perfect what would be happening?" Brainstorm absolutely everything and write it down on a piece of paper. A coach (http://www.lifecoachingonline.com/) will ask you powerful questions to facilitate the brainstorming process. Examples of such questions would be:
"If you had no fear what would you do?"
"If you knew you couldn't fail what would you do?"
"What do you really really want?"
"What else would you love to be, do or have?"
Your coach will keep on questioning you until they are sure that you have come up with absolutely everything you need for this area in your life to be perfect.
From the notes you have made you now need to formulate your goals according to the S.M.E.R.T.I.E. model below (25/07). It is important to use empowering phrases such as; "I love doing..", "I am delighted that...", "I am exhilarated..." They should also be written in the present tense, they must have a date and year, and they must not contain any negatives, which the sub-conscious mind cannot process. (The phrase "Don't think of a pink elephant" illustrates this point with alarming accuracy).
An example of a correctly worded goal would be something like "It is 26th September 2007 and I am now in a romance of storybook intensity with the girl of my dreams. She is fantastic and we get on amazingly well, enjoying many adventures and sharing much fun and happiness together. Our intellects are well matched and we take great pleasure in deep discussions which go on into the night. We enjoy working out at the gym as well as running and cycling. We are like catalysts to one another encouraging each other's personal growth and development. When we are together we are totally unaware of the flow of time. The relationship is destined to result in a enduring marriage of more romance, love, fun adventure and mutual personal growth."
You can have great fun writing out these goals, and as a coach it is one of the activities I enjoy most. I will write out three goals for you during my free introductory coaching session. Please contact me at Trevor@IntelligentLifestyles.co.uk to arrange a free coaching session.
