What are your goals?

What are your goals, and why are you absolutely committed to achieveing them? What do you stand to lose if you don't take action today?

Friday, October 8, 2010


I've decided that I will share with you my top four goals to be accomplished with a year:

Personal Development Goal:

1. I want to have a chiseled body that's worthy of being on the cover of Oxygen Magazine Special Edition.

I am absolutely committed to achieving this goal within a year, because I know that my confidence will skyrocket. This is compelling to me because it is a challenge that has eluded me for 9 years. Conquering this challenge will propel me to commit to and conquer even greater challenges. It will give me a sense of accomplishment and the motivation needed to follow through with my other goals. It will solidify my belief that I always follow through on the things that I set out to do. The idea of having a chiseled body that's worthy of being on the cover of Oxygen Magazine, is both exciting and exhilarating.

Career/ Business/ Economic Goals:

2. Get a perfect MCAT score

I am absolutely committed to achieving this goal within a year because it is the stepping stone to most of the career goals that I've set out to achieve. This is compelling to me because a perfect MCAT score is unheard of. Conquering this challenge will not only solidify my belief that I can do, be or have anything that I want, but will also serve to inspire others. What an enormous sense of accomplishment and pride I'll get from knowing that I've conquered the unconquerable! How fantastic it'll be when all the Medical Schools are competing to get me to enroll at their school. Being offered full scholarships to the top Medical Schools will be the greatest reward of them all.

Toys and Adventure Goals:

3. Have a wardrobe that reflects the beautiful, sexy, confident person that I am.

I am absolutely committed to achieving this goal within a year, because I know that when I'm excited about my appearance, I exude a level of confidence beyond my norm. This is compelling to me because I feel great when I look great and when I feel great, I am inspired and motivated to reach for the stars. Achieving this will have an enormous impact on the other areas of my life. I'll feel fantastic that my outside reflects the euphoria, passion, power and great sense of pride that's inside.

Contribution Goals:

4. Make monthly donations to Food for the Poor.

I am absolutely committed to achieving this goal within a year because it will bring me tremendous joy, knowing that I am helping someone less fortunate to live in an improved state. This is compelling to me because I know that a little help can make a huge difference in the quality of someone's life. I have witnessed the work that Food for the Poor does and I truly believe that it's a great organization. In doing this, I will also be more appreciative and grateful for all the blessings in my life. The legacy that I want to leave is one of generosity, caring, compassion, and love. I believe that this is just a tiny step towards living a life of worth.

In the next five years I would love to accomplish:

1. Emotional Mastery

2. Physical Mastery

3. Financial Mastery

4. Relationship Mastery

5. Time Mastery

I'll break these five categories down later.

Who are you and What's your expanded identity?

Who are you now . . . can you describe the person that you are now? Most importantly can you describe the person that you want to be (your expanded identity)?

Here's my expanded identity:
I am the designer of my life and I'm creating the most stunning masterpiece that I could. I am creating an astounding and compelling future. I take advantage of the amazing resources that are available to me. My view of the world has not been tarnished by my experiences; rather I see the world through the eyes of a child. My possibilities are endless and exciting. I am a catalyst for growth and success. I maximize my potential in every area of my life. I am outrageously happy, passionate and have an enormous zest for life. I am a leader, a partner, a lover, a friend and a daughter. I am gifted, blessed, intelligent, inspirational, compassionate, fun, adventurous and fearless. I am the provider of nourishment and the sculptor of my body. I am dynamic and powerful.

The Force that Shapes Your Life!

"Awaken the Giant Within" by Anthony Robbins - Chapter 3

This chapter focuses on pain vs. pleasure and how this shapes our lives. In essence Tony Robbins is saying that what we link pain and pleasure to will shape our destiny. He states, " what drives our behavior is instinctive reaction to pain and pleasure and not intellectual calculation". What some of you may find surprising is that we do more to avoid pain than to gain pleasure.

We can take control of our own lives in a moment by "linking pain to the behaviors we want to stop at such a high level of emotional intensity that we won't even consider those behaviors any longer".The next step would be to link pleasure to the new behavior.

Tony Robbins says that the first step in creating change is becoming aware of the power that pain exert over every decision and therefore every action that we take.

Four actions that I've been putting off:

1. Consistently eating healthier: eating 5-6 smalls meals daily, more vegetables and fruits, eating enough protein.

2. Completing Insanity and P90x Workout Programs.

3. Creating a study schedule.

4. De-cluttering my home: organize closets, pantry and refrigerator.

Harnessing the Power of Decisions

Again, these are concepts that I've taken directly from "Awaken the Giant Within" by Anthony Robbins. You will soon realize (if you haven't already) that I love this book. I'm sure that there are other motivational masterpieces out there, so if you've already discovered them, please share.

1. You literally begin to change your life the moment that you make a new decision. A real decision is measured by the fact that you've taken new action. If there isn't action , you haven't truly decided.

2. The hardest step in achieving anything is making a true commitment - a true decision. Never leave the scene of a decision without first taking a specific action towards its realization.

3. Make decisions often.

4. Learn from your decisions.

5. Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible to your approach.

6. Enjoy making decisions.

As I re-read "Awaken the Giant Within", I will share with you the ideas/ tools and strategies that I find interesting and useful.

Tony Robbins spends a bit of time talking about decisions and how they affect who we are and what we do. He says that there are three decisions that control our destiny:

1. Our decisions about what to focus on.

2. Our decisions about what things mean to us.

3. Our decisions about what to do to create the results that we desire.

There is nothing out of our reach if we decide: 

1. What it is that we're absolutely committed to achieving.

2. To take massive action.

3. To take notice of what's working and what's not.

4. To continue to change our approach until we achieve what we want and use what life gives on on the way.

I have promised to share what you all the resources that I think may serve you in your quest to creating an amazing life. Yesterday I came across an amazing blog that focuses on the tools and strategies that you can employ. The writer not only shares his own experiences, but provides some incredible references. Please check it out:

Awaken the Giant Within

Have any of you read "Awaken the Giant Within" by Anthony Robbins? For those of you who haven't, I highly recommend that you read it. I am reading it again for the second time. This was the most inspiring, motivational book that I've read so far. If you read this book actively, you'll discover what has brought you to your present self, you'll discover why we do the things that we do. If you're seeking to transform your life, this book teaches you the tools and strategies that you need to accomplish this.

After reading this book for the first time, I felt like I could fly . . . there was nothing out of my reach. I ultimately slipped right back into my rut a few months later because I didn't create an effective plan for the days that I couldn't muster up an once of motivation.

We all have the power to create the life that we envision. We must however develop a clear vision of what it is that we want. We need to get clear about what we desire vs. what we're committed to. We must then act.

Anthony Robbins has coined the term CANI - (Constant and Never Ending Improvements). We can have anything and be anyone once we're committed to CANI. Together, I believe that we can create the most spectacular, amazing and dynamic lives.
