HOW TO ACCOMPLISH ANYTHING YOU WANT IN LIFE
a look at yourself - inside and out. Where do you live, what job do you
have, how do you relate to your friends and family? What interests do you
pursue, what adventures do you have?
do you truly want from life? Do you want wealth and success, happiness and
peace of mind? Do you want a family and a yard , a yacht or a sports car?
Where are you going? Do you have a particular goal or are you just wandering
can accomplish anything you want in life - that's true. Once you have a
particular goal, you can fulfill that desire by straightforward commitment
and total conviction.
what if you don't know what you want? Maybe your goals are small ones - like
losing some weight, or buying a new car. Maybe getting a promotion of
finding a mate. Whether you want a bigger apartment or want to be a
corporation president, any avenue of prosperity and achievement is open to
you if it is truly what you want.
goal is too small; no dream is too big. And even if you aren't clear on your
desires, you can tap into your subconscious mind to get the answers and to
find the paths to success.
you change your life - do you want to? Can you picture yourself as your most
perfect image of accomplishment? How does it feel? If you have the desire
to attain goals, the commitment to follow through and the ability to
creatively imagine yourself in the position you dream of, you are more than
most successful leaders and artists throughout history have followed specific
paths and attained their hearts' desires. Keep an open mind and a hopeful
outlook - then change your thinking. Put on the clothes of success. Act as
though you already have accomplished your desires. Then let the reality
WHAT DO YOU
a choice: money, health, physical energy, beauty, creativity, recognition,
power, adventure, contentment, achievement, self-expression, authority, love,
peace of mind, enlightenment. Would you like any of these? If you are like
most people today, you probably want ALL of these.
if you search your true desires, you might find that there are a few things
you want more than others. And, if you keep going in your search, you'll
find one desire that has been with you your whole lifetime and is the one
path you need to follow.
money is the obvious desire, it is usually not the final goal. Indeed, money
can, and does buy happiness - up to a point. Once you have enough money to
be financially secure or to purchase the material objects you want, the true
desire might be something else.
is the goal of every person's heart. Whether it is love of a mate, or a
family, or respect and recognition from peers and fellow workers, love is the
ageless pursuit. The mystics say that love is the sole purpose of life- to
give love and to find it.
love comes in many forms. Not only is there the overt display of affection
or true inner feelings, but there is the self-respect and inner contentment
that goes with accomplishment. For some people, true peace of mind will
never be attained until they complete some creative tasks or achieve certain heights
people seek the authority that comes with a good position in a job. Along
with that can come recognition and fame. Although you may want the money
that is associated with high management levels, many people simply seek that
satisfaction of working from the inner circles.
goal of every person regardless of background and material desires, is
health. A sound body is the gift that will get you to the other goals. Even
a new diet and exercise plan can give you more energy - the energy you'll
need to accomplish success.
and travel is a driving force for many people. They may seek jobs that
involve travel, or they may be looking forward to taking time off to visit
the exotic ports and see the other side of the world. If you don't want a
long journey, perhaps you'd just like a few weeks in a sunny resort or the
luxury of a summer and winter vacation each year.
then there is creativity and self-expression. What about the book you're
going to write or the watercolor class you'd like to take? Creative
expression is a wonderful inner release that boosts confidence and gives you
something to accomplish. Finally, regardless of wealth and health,
expression and love, everyone is looking for peace of mind. That's not to
say emptiness of mind, but to be rid of petty worries and confusion, to be
finished with fears and live in total awareness. It surely is the ultimate
the time to evaluate your life and your desires. Go ahead and test yourself
- nobody's looking. Try to find out what your inner desires really are.
Once you know, you can formulate a plan of action, and then achieve your

Set aside time each day for deep relaxation - not sleep, but relaxation. The
state of deep relaxation is a state of meditation. There are no thoughts in
your mind. There are no physical ills or discomforts. You breathe in

body. You drift through space, ever towards your true destiny.

good workout. Exercise is a wonderful way to let the mind relax, as you
place your thoughts on the way your body moves. For many people, sports and
exercise are enjoyable ways to feel alive, youthful, and fulfilled.

Your feet should be about two feet about. You might clench your muscles

desires; expect to win. Accept less, but push on to attain more. The higher
your goals, the further you'll go.

risks. You may need to change your job, or move to another city. You might
take up a sport or hobby. Become active in your life - participate. And you
