My Own Thinking Kept me from setting Big Goals

My Own Thinking Kept me from setting Big Goals

As I have grown in my journey I have come to the realize that my thinking had allowed me to be satisfied with my lot in life so to say. I never set any real big concrete goals. Of course I wanted more in my life but my thinking and belief system did not allow me to take it past a day dream.

As I look back I can see that in order to go further with any endeavor, we must grow as a person. In order to go further in my life, I needed to expand my thinking. I was, infact, the one holding me back – it was my own thinking. Once I acknowledged this as a possibility my thinking had already started to change. I was on my way to changing the thoughts that I gave attention to. I knew that my mindset was responsible for the way I had been accepting that all I had was all I would ever have – 95% of the game is my mindset.

I have learned so much about the power of goal setting. Many know that it is one of the most common characteristics of successful individuals. Read the biographies of some of history’s most successful men and you will find that they had concrete dreams, visions or goals of what they wished to achieve. All top achievers have three common threads:

Desire – Belief – Expectancy
When you set a goal you need to adopt these three qualities to help manifest the end result.

First, you must have a burning desire to achieve the goal.

Second, you must have a strong belief that the goal is possible and within reach.

Third, you must be in the state of expectancy – you must be expecting to see results.

Not sure that you believe that your mind is this powerful? Not sure that you can manifest your own reality? Do your own investigating and learn more about the evidence in the scientific community. Learn more about the law of attraction – it is not just the positive that we can attract into our lives by out thoughts. The law of attraction does not care if something is negative or if it is positive.

So get started

1. Define Clear, Concrete Goals.
2. Think Big
We create our own limitations. Most of us are guilty of aiming too low rather than aiming too high.

When you’re setting a goal, keep this in mind
“A good goal should scare you a little and excite you a lot.”
Think of your current goals and test them against this rule. If your goals do not both scare and excite you – try targeting something a little more challenging.

The mind is the limit. As long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it – as long as you really believe it 100 percent.

3. Be Persistant – no matter what
It was very easy for me to allow other people’s opinions and ideas to influence me. Do not allow other people’s negative ideas to influence you.

4. Continue with Desire – Belief – Expectancy
Your goals must meet the criteria of Desire, Belief and Expectancy.

The goal must be something you strongly desire and it helps if it is heart centered and rooted in service to others. The greater your desire the stronger your will to pursue the goal. Napoleon Hill said “If your desires are strong enough you will appear to possess super-human powers to achieve.”

Next, the goal must be something you believe is in the realm of the possible. This depends on your belief system. As you accomplish more in life your self-belief grows. This increases your confidence and fuels you to accomplish even bigger things. Until then you can try affirmations to increase your belief system and use words such as “I am in the process of….” or “it is like me to…..”.

Finally, you must expect the end result to occur. Think from the end, as if your desire has already happened. Who are you being? The person that has the desired result is the person who you want to be with regard to your thoughts and what you give your attention to.

Expectancy is harder to create. But the tool of creative visualization helps tremendously. Your subconscious mind cannot distinguish between a real experience and an imagined experience. By frequently visualizing the end result you desire you cause your subconscious to accept it to be real. This causes the mind to draw that situation into your life.

“The man I want to become, if I believe myself to be, I will become” – Gandhi

Learn, investigate, implement and then share with others! Let’s create a world where we all vibrate for the positive and co-create our reality by living all of our passions in our life!
Imagine what a world it will be!


How to create a Facebook Vanity URL for your facebook page

Vanity url for facebook

Facebook has changed the requirements needed to obtain a vanity URL for your Fan Page. Now you only need 25 fans to be allowed a customised URL. However, the “how to” steps don’t seem to be that well advertised so we’ve received a number of requests about how to do it. The process is simple but not that clear, and there are a number of pitfalls. We hope this walk-through clarifies.

A Facebook vanity URL has two major benefits:
1. It’s much easier for people to remember
2. It can contain more search engine value because you can choose the words in the URL

Businesses especially can benefit from having a fan page with a URL that is much easier to advertise.

Here’s how to do it:
Step 1 – Set up a Vanity URL for a Fan Page Administrator
In mid 2009, Facebook started allowing members to configure their own vanity URL, what Facebook calls a “Username”. Instead of having a Facebook URL that ends in a randomly assigned account number like this “id=123456789″, a member can now have a custom URL without the id number. If you are an administrator for a Facebook Fan Page, you need to a personal Vanity URL for your account before you can set up one for the Fan Page.
1. Login to your personal account – then type into the browser address bar
2. Select a Username – Facebook will probably recommend a username to you but you can also check the availability of a username that you actually want (I’m going to assume that the one Facebook suggests is no good)
3. Type in your “desired username” – and click “Check Availability”. If the name is free, you will receive the following message.
STOP!!!!! – Before your go any further, make sure you take heed of Facebook’s warning: once you select a username it is yours forever. There is no changing it and no transferring it. If you make a spelling mistake, you are stuck with that into eternity (or until Facebook makes our lives a little easier)
POTENTIAL PITFALL NOTE – make sure the Username that you pick is NOT THE ONE YOU WANT FOR YOUR FAN PAGE. If your personal account has nothing to do with the fan page, then we suggest naming it based on your name and not the subject matter of the Fan Page.
4. If all is good, click “Confirm” – Facebook will then deliver the following message telling you the personal URL for your account:
Step 2 – Set Up Fan Page Vanity URL
If your personal account is an administrator of a Fan Page, underneath that message will be a link for “Set a username for your pages”.
1. Click on the link and then select the relevant Fan page from the drop-down menu that appears.You will be offered the opportunity to select a Username for your Fan Page. Before you go ahead, consider the following:
o The name should be something people remember. If possible, keep it short.
o If the Fan Page is for a business, then make the Username the business name so you don’t start diluting your brand (an exception to this is if your business is better known for its product brand name than its corporate name. In that case, you can have separate fan pages for your business and for your products.)
o As above, double-check before hitting “confirm”, there is no changing it once it’s assigned.
2. Click “confirm”. Now you have a vanity URL for your Fan Page. Make sure you use it when promoting your Page.

Hope that helps.
