How do you make goals that stick in your mind?

This is a question I am sure you want to find an answer to. Because according to a survey done about goal setting done by Scranton University, only 8 percent of people who set goals achieve them


If you’ve ever tried to accomplish a project, you’ll agree that the most challenging part of a project is doing the task you need to make the project a success.


The same applies to achieving goals because a goal is a dream with a deadline.

The first part of goal setting is easy to do. Anyone can write down what they want. But the second part of the whole goal-setting process is where almost everyone I know falls short

Why? Because it takes having the discipline and focus on doing the necessary task to accomplish a goal


Your ability to follow through by taking action on the goals you have written is what will make you accomplish them or fail to achieve your goals


In my experience of succeeding and failing at setting goals … the secret to achieving any goal is to make them stick in your mind.


The secret to making goals that stick in your mind is emotion and repetition


Here are 7 powerful tips to making magnetic goals that you’ll never fail at achieving


Tip #1. Write down your goals daily

Studies have shown a connection between writing down your goals and achieving them.

Why? Because when you write your goals daily, you embed what you write in your subconscious mind.

Motivational speaker and best-selling author Brian Tracy says the more frequently you write down your goals, the higher your chances of accomplishing them

A very powerful tip for writing your goals daily: write down your top 10 goals every day without looking at the previous day’s goals you wrote.


Tip #2. Review your goals on waking and before going to bed daily

Another tip for making goals stick is to write and review your goal first thing in the morning and just before you go to bed.


In his book, Goals: How to get everything want faster than you ever thought, Brian Tracy highlighted why you need to write your goals two times a day.


When you write and review your goals in the morning before you start your day, you set off your mind on a positive note.

In addition, when you review your goals before you go to bed at night, you program them into your subconscious mind to work on them.


Tip #3.   Close your eyes… imagine how you feel achieving your goals

You are likely to achieve your goal when you add emotion to it. The best way to emotionalize your goals is to feel yourself achieving it.


Joe Vitale, one of the actors in the bestselling movie the secret, gives a powerful technique for making your goal stick.


Dr. Vitale advises you to find a quiet place and time of the day when you can relax.

Next, you lie down or sit down with your eyes closed…and then start to imagine how you feel about achieving your goals

For example, if your goal is to write a book, you should imagine how you will feel when your book is on the New York Times bestselling list.

Or imagine you are invited to the Oprah Winfrey show to talk about your book


The more you review your goals with feeling, the higher the chances they will stick in your mind, and you will accomplish them


Tip #4. Create a movie with you as the star actor achieving your goals

Another way to remember your goals vividly is to write a movie with you as the lead  star actor that accomplish your dream

Sound interesting, won’t you agree?

Here’s what you do…

Sit back and write an action movie packed with the adventure of the hero (you, of course) trying to achieve your goals.

You need to get creative here…You can create action scenes… fight scenes with bad guys…and finally, the happy ending.

When you finish writing your movie, Sit back, relax, Close your eyes and play the movie in your mind.

When you finish watching your movie, give yourself a standing ovation

The more you play the movie about your achieving your objectives effortlessly … the faster your goals will be attracted to you


Tip #5. Write a success story

How would you like to be a Pulitzer award-winning journalist? Yes, you can.

That is when writing your own success story!

You will find this next tip for making your goals stick in your mind interesting if you love writing.

Be creative and write a press release about yourself becoming what you set out to accomplish.

For example, let’s say one of your ambitions is becoming the chief executive officer at your office. Write a press release about the new CEO( you) paying a courtesy visit to the mayor or leading government officials.

To make this story more vivid, look for a picture of a business leader with  Barack Obama, The European Union President, and replace his face with your face.

You may also want to write your success story like a rags-to-riches story.

The more creative you get with your story, the better your chance of remembering them.


Tip# 6 create a visual mind map 

Mind maps are valuable tools for creating a graphic illustration of your goal.

Studies show that your mind “thinks” with an image. The more you can depict your goals with images, the better the chance they’ll stick.


Mind mapping is easy to do. It only takes a few minutes of practice to learn them. There are a few free mind mapping tools on the web. The best article I found about the topic was in an article in Lifehacker.


Tip #7. Create a dream board 

A dream board is an area where you can stick pictures or objects of things you want to do.

Remember the kitchen fridge… where you stick cards and important bills so you can remember to take action on them.


A dream board serves the same purpose: to remind you and keep your dream fresh in your mind.

The trick to using a dream board is to stick it in a place you can see frequently. The kitchen fridge and wall of the home office are good places to keep the dream board.

The bottom line to achieving your goals is writing them down and ensuring you work on accomplishing them.

Using these tips, you can work on your subconscious mind  24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to attract what you desire.
