For Example: One Man's Top 100 Goals & Dreams
One of the things I’ve learned about success from all the reading I’ve been doing is the importance of thinking big, setting goals, and programming your subconscious mind. One of the ways I’m doing that is by creating a list of some of the accomplishments I plan on achieving, including some BIG ones.
Napoleon Hill, in ‘Think and Grow Rich’ said “What the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve”. In the ‘The Magic of Thinking Big’ David Schwartz goes into the importance of having big goals, of constantly telling yourself that you can achieve them and that you will achieve them. He goes into the concept of having two different voices in your mind, the negative – which tells you why you can’t do something, and the positive, which will tell you how you can. It’s up to us to decide which one we are going to listen to. Whichever we start concentrating on will be the one we hear. It’s time to start talking to ourselves about something positive instead of listening to our negative.
Orrin Woodward, in ‘Resolved’, gives really good examples of the programming of the subconscious mind when talking about how TV commercials affect us. When we see commercials over and over again, it is essentially brainwashing us to think of those products when we are out shopping. we can remember theme songs from shows that haven’t played on TV for years, and probably some tag lines from really old commercials. By having some big goals, we can essentially brainwash ourselves to achieving them.
What all the really successful people say, is that you have to envision your goals in your mind over and over again if we are to achieve them. Creating this list is not going to be enough, but it is a start. The next step will be to play a commercial in my mind over and over again of what it will be like achieving them. For example, one of the things on my list is to be earning enough money to leave by job and not work again, so I’ve written out what my last day at work will be like, and I think about it when I wake up, and when I go to bed.
By picturing the achievement over and over again in your mind, you will start making decisions that will eventually lead you to your goal
This list is about long term thinking. I will not add those things I want to do, but haven’t done yet, if I could easily go do it tomorrow if I chose to. Everything on my list had to require some kind of work or effort on my part. They will all take time and/or money (hence one of the items being to earn enough money in a business to no longer need to work)
It was important to make some of these goals BIG. If we only set small goals, we will probably only achieve small goals.
So here it is, finally in some semblance of order
Pay it forward with something big 3 times, like in the movie – but with things or services worth at least $10000

Get to the point of earning $1 million a year (in 2012 dollars!!)
Mentor someone into helping someone else get their time back (leave their job)
Help someone through a difficult situation in their life
Get a cottage out in the woods by a lake. Have a zip line or Tarzan rope over the water

So there you have it. I can promise you one thing about this list. As time goes on, I’m sure some of these will change as somethings become more important to me than others.. for example, when I have kids, I’m sure I’ll add bringing them to Disneyland on this list. And when I accomplish #1, It will be more important for me to do things with her, that she wants to accomplish. When you make your list, don’t be afraid to make some changes. And never let everything on your list be accomplished. What I mean by that is, as you start accomplishing things, cross it off and add something else on your list to strive for; always have something to look forward to over the next horizon!
I hope this encourages you to start a list of your own if you haven’t already done so, and maybe even give you some ideas. Do you have anything crazy I didn’t include here? let me know, maybe I’ll change the list sooner than I thought!
you tell one lie, it leads to another
So you tell two lies to cover each other
Then you tell three lies and, Oh Brother,
You're in trouble up to your ears!
So you tell four lies to try to protect you
Then you tell five lies so folks won't suspect you
Then you tell six lies and you'll collect
A life filled with worries and fears
'Cause you can't remember how many lies you've told
And half the things you say aren't true
And sometime you'll slip up, you'll trip up and then
Whatever will become of you?
So you lie and lie without even trying
And each lie you tell will keep multiplying
'Till the whole wide world will know you're lying
Then you'll be
And you should!
When you lie, you're closing the door
On everything good
From Alfonso Lua, UCLA student, former HPIAM student:
Life planning book has been vital in guiding me to achieve my goals. It’s a
great way to acknowledge your deficiencies and work to improve on them. Having
a goal in mind sets you apart from most individuals who do not have a path or a
goal. It makes you competitive but also allows you to accomplish your dreams.
One goal I wrote down on my life planning book was to make
the UCLA Speech & Debate team roster. I worked hard and tirelessly to
improve my public speaking skills and develop my debating skills as well.
Successfully, before the turn of the new year I was placed on the debate
roster. This is a true testament to the power of writing down a goal.
Reading and updating your life planning book is a great way
to help clarify some of your important priorities. It will help ensure that you
don’t live with regrets. It will also maintain a balance within your life. I
encourage you to continue to update your life planning books so that you can
accomplish what matters most.
One last piece of advice I would like to offer is to be ready
to sacrifice what you are to what you want to become.
Best wishes to the class of 2016 … and to Mr. Haymore for
helping guide this generation and equipping them with important knowledge that
will be vital in their future endeavors
