I’m delighted to share my goals with you for this new year. I hope it will be a very productive and exciting year 🙂

If you haven’t set goals yet, I would like to remind you of 4 great reasons why you should set ambitious goals in your life

It sends a powerful signal to your subconscious mind

Your subconscious mind is an extremely powerful goal-seeking device. If you give it a clear goal to accomplish, it will do a far better job than you can.

Here is what Maxwell Malz, author of Psycho-cybernetics wrote about the subconscious mind

Your automatic creative mechanism is teleological. That is, it operates in terms of goals and end results. Once you give it a definite goal to achieve, you can depend upon its automatic guidance system to take you to that goal much better than “you” ever could by conscious thought. “You” supply the goal by thinking in terms of end results. Your automatic mechanism them supplies the means whereby. – Maxwell Maltz

It is a great way to empower yourself

By setting goals in all areas of your life you reclaim power over your life. You recognize that you have the power to create the life you want rather than hoping for good circumstances to come in your life.

Jim Rohn wrote:

If you don’t design your own life plan, chances are you’ll fall into someone else’s plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much.

It changes your present reality

By allowing yourself to dream big you start breaking free of your limiting belief and realize that you are more than you think you are.

David Allen wrote:

The value of goals is not in the future they describe, but the change in perception of reality they foster – David Allen, Getting Things Done

It is good for your health

One of the 9 common characteristics identified by Dan Buettner in his book “The Blue Zones: Lessons For Living Longer From The People Who’ve Lived the Longest” is to have a life purpose.

David J. Schwartz wrote:

Use goals to live longer. No medicine in the world – and your physician will bear this out – is as powerful in bringing about life as is the desire to do something. – David J. Schwatz, The Magic Of Thinking Big

Much more about goals in my e-book that will be release soon “How To Achieve Any Goal – Set Goals That Truly Empower You And Get Things Done” (title is likely to change)

My Goals For 2014 – Set Your Goals Too!

The key to goal setting is for you to think on paper. Successful men and women think with a pen in their hands; unsuccessful people do not – Brian Tracy

Goal Setting

Taking the time to set goals and make them measurable is a determinant factor of our success. Having goals means we are moving towards a direction we have clearly identified instead of hanging around just hoping that good things will happen in the future. A pen, a piece of paper and your brain is all you need to set goals so why not setting your goals now?

My goals For 2014

Coaching

  • I will definitely coach 10 people for free  (5)
  • I will definitely create original business cards for my coaching business (work in progress)
  • I will definitely meet 5 life coaches  (2)

Public Speaking

  • I will definitely give one speech in a school or any other institution – not accomplished
  • Toasmasters
    • I will definitely give 7 speeches (4 in Japanese, 3 in English)  
    • I will definitely be Toastmaster of the evening one time  
    • I will definitely be Topicsmaster (one time in English and one time Japanese)
    • I will definitely be evaluator one time – not accomplished

Personal Development

  • I will launch a blog that generates 20,000 pages viewed monthly in December 2014  (10,019 pages views per month)
  • I will definitely have 20 articles published on my blog (21)
  • I will definitely record 10 videos and put them on Youtube and on my blog  (15)
  • I will definitely publish a 20-pages ebook on personal development on Amazon, selling easily 100 copies a month (17,000 words written so far)

Finance

  • I will definitely generate a cumulated revenue of ¥200,000/month in December 2014 (part time job, blog…)  ¥110,000

Health

  • I will definitely move towards becoming a vegetarian:
    • I will buy books about vegetarianism 
    • I will experience vegetarianism for one month
  • I will definitely meditate for 20 minutes every single day without any exception pretty consistent but not every day. Since I created a chain of habits about a month ago. I’ve been doing it every single day.
  • I will definitely run/walk every morning without any exception  I’ve been walking but not necessarily every day
  • I will definitely join the 10 Day Vipassana meditation course, write an article about it, and publish it on my blog. Course was cancelled. Still thinking whether I should apply to the course that runs during Christmas and the New Year or postpone to January.

Relationships

  • I will definitely approach a total of 1,000 women in bars, shops or in the street  75

1,000 women is too much! After making about 60 approaches I realized that approaching women just for the sake of approaching does not really make sense. I could say “hi” to a thousand women and it wouldn’t do much in term of personal growth. It wouldn’t help me going more and more out of my comfort zone. For that reason, for now I will focus more on having quality interactions. I will talk to girls I feel like talking to and try to have a coffee with them or get their numbers.

N.B. I will update my progress regularly. I might add or remove some elements if deemed necessary.
