Book:Goals...The 10 Rules for Achieving Success

Hi Good day!
Remember my earlier post about Goal setting & Mind power?

Last post I was mentioning, intention fulfillment. I have managed to fulfill or more than 50%, 4 out of 20goals using these methods.

Read this short introduction to a book on Sale by Simpletruths & thought about sharing it with you.

Dear Nilima,

If you were to ask the experts to select the #1 key to success, most would say...clearly defined goals. Because without goals your dreams have no chance to become a reality.

Gary Ryan Blair is one of the nation's top authors on the topic of goals. For the last 20 years, his 14 books and training materials on goals have been used by more than 80,000 organizations and 4,000,000 employees world-wide. He teaches that your life will not go according to plan if you don't have a plan.

Our new book with Gary, Goals - The 10 Rules for Achieving Success, is one of the most important books we've published at Simple Truths. Why...because it is about one of the most important topics. It's loaded with nuggets of wisdom and "a-ha" moments that will bring the power of goals into focus; and it has the potential to change your life.

Today, I'd like to share Gary's introduction to Goals. Enjoy!

Excerpt from:
Goals...The 10 Rules for Achieving Success,
by Gary Ryan Blair

On everyone's short list of things to do during their lifetime are the accomplishment of worthy goals and the fulfillment of one's purpose.

Achieving a goal is like opening a combination lock. You need the correct numbers in the correct right, left, right sequence. There are thousands of possible combinations; and if you are aware of the settings but not the sequence, your efforts will prove futile.

The Ten Rules of Goal Setting is the combination that opens the lock of success. Each rule is one piece of the combination; each seamlessly integrates with the other nine; each one counts!

This book provides the goal setting information you need in a straightforward and systematic manner. You will be hard pressed to find a goal that does not require each of these ten rules.

Not all goals are equal, but all goals contain the same foundational elements. When it comes to setting goals, we often don't know what we don't know. And, what you don't know can - and most likely will - hurt you by limiting or compromising your success. Each rule calls for and requires know-how of multiple disciplines. No one is born with all the talents to achieve a goal - you learn as you go on the fly!

If I could carve ten rules for achieving a goal into the walls of your mind, they would be the ones contained in this book. The ten rules work because they are simple, and they are simple because they work.

Success, of course, is individual. Your definition of "the good life" may be very different from mine. Yet the underlying steps toward that end are the same. That similarity helps you to understand what success really is.

Success is the ability,
, to recognize opportunity;
second, to form plans and strategies that leverage opportunity; and,
, to develop the necessary skills needed to execute those strategies.
The ten rules, like anything else in life, operate best if they are self-enforced!

Success is beautiful because of how it looks to you, how it works, how it feels and how it represents the fulfillment of goals pursued.

Grow accustomed to prosperity and confident in the process of achieving a goal. Embrace these ten rules of goal setting and give witness to a powerful transition in your life.

And finally, my goal for this book is to simply...help you reach yours.

Mine too :). Same sweet. :D

What do you say??? ;)

What are your new year resolutions?

Bye.take care. Let me know your list.

Incidents 2-Your take on this?

Hi Good day Everyone!
How was the Long-extended celebration weekend? :) I had planned lot of things for this & it all worked out Just great. Did a lot of stuff which at end-of-day made me feel: Wow, I am Living Life to the fullest & helping/motivating others too to do the same. Fulfilling! :)

I came across 2 incidents which led me to spontaneously act. Dont want to brag, but want to know what do you do in such incidents?

I and my mom were passing a locality where we crossed a lady whose dupatta was literally sweeping the street & she had both her hands full with vegetable filled bags. I told her about the dupatta, but she said 'As you can see, I cant help it.'. I offered to help & placed her dupatta on her shoulders so that she could manage it till she got home.
Here the feeling to help & execution was instant. But also the point to note is the ability to ask or take help. Generally people just thank the person & dont take help when offered. Is that RIGHT to do all time?

Again mom & me were shopping in a vegetable market. Mom was busy buying the vegetables, I was observing people & the market scene. Just then a lady with slightly high heels carrying a 7-8month old baby walked by & her feet got entangled in a string. Crash she went flat on the street, baby,bags all flying & crashing on the street. I tried running & catching the baby but its head hit the concrete & it started wailing loudly. The lady must have hurt herself coz she couldn't get up for a few minutes. She had a few ladies with her who came to help, but even they were clueless about what to do. The lady got up, mom & me asked her to sit down, but she insisted she was fine & again wanted to carry the crying baby all by herself.

This is the opposite reaction to help I got. Sometimes when someone is offering help & advising, why not listen? It wouldn't hurt, instead it might help :)

Exciting, knowledge gaining,productive, intention fulfillment weekend it has been for me. What about you?

Would love to hear about your incidents too.

Waiting for your reaction/opinions/comments :)

Bye.Take care. Have a great week ahead!
