What Worked, What
Didn't, What's Next?
One of the common
denominators of successful people is their
ability to persevere when things don't go as
planned. Effective people don't allow themselves
to get bogged down in feelings that don't serve
On the other
hand, ineffective, unsuccessful people allow
their emotions to rule rather than their
rational and objective nature. They lament what
happened or what didn't and become victims
rather than masters of their circumstances.
We all have
disappointments. We all suffer setbacks. If
we're going to attempt anything worthwhile,
we're going to experience failure. The
mature—and ultimately successful person—sees
failure as part of success. When one method
fails, they try again with a new one. Sometimes
it takes many attempts.
You can forget about making New Year's Resolutions if
you're hoping for a successful outcome. Most aren't
worth the paper they're written on.
No less than Mark Twain has written of New Year's
Resolutions, "Now is the accepted time to make your
regular annual good resolutions. Next week you can begin
paving hell with them as usual. Yesterday, everybody
smoked his last cigar, took his last drink, and swore
his last oath. Today, we are a pious and exemplary
community. Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our
reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient
shortcomings considerably shorter than ever."
The biggest majority of New Year's Resolutions have gone
by the wayside before January is over and most won't
even be remembered six months later. And the reason is
pretty simple: Most are made in response to something
negative -- a habit or situation that the person wants
to change or end. And therein lies the problem - it's
hard to develop momentum from a negative response. It is
always easier to move toward something rather than away

The Power of Writing a Statement of Intention
I consider that an important principle of empowerment is to identify an intention; a technique related to that principle is to write down the statement of intention. I consciously use the principle of intention in all aspects of my work, and express intention frequently with my
clients. I also advocate writing down a
statement of intention in certain situations.
Setting Personal Goals
- Why? - Because you have ‘gone public’ and you
do not want to lose face or have to answer
questions about what happened to that lofty goal
of becoming first in your graduating class.
Studies prove that public goals create more
positive forward pressure. Having said that,
there are times when you might NOT want to
announce your goals to the world. Choose whom
you tell, when you tell, IF you tell! And do

keep to a strict eating plan and follow a particular exercise
regime you may have found it a bit of a struggle to keep going.
Chances are you gave up after a few weeks or even a few days.
When we start out full of enthusiasm it's difficult to see the
sheer effort that it will take to keep going when the novelty has
worn off, it's a wet Tuesday In February and we're just plain
tired of it all.
Some people do manage to makeover their lives overnight. It's
fantastic if you have the willpower and determination to achieve
this but most of us can't handle that much disruption to our

psychologists say that 95% - 97% of the
people in the world
do NOT have written goals and fail, while
3-5% have written goals
statistics are correct, then Mr Rohn's
observation really IS
quite fascinating isn't it?
for most people, the odds for success are
even lower, because out of the few people
who do set goals, most
don't take goal setting seriously, they
don't do it scientifically
and they only do it once a year.
Goal setting is
so important, that I always teach goal
setting and mind
dynamics first, and only THEN, do I teach
nutrition and training second.
