This is why you should write a plan

Writing your goals

Do you know that writing down your goals is one of the actions that can help you reach them?

Do you know that people who write down their plans are more likely to reach their goals than those who don't?

Before i tell you why this always happens i just need to make sure that you understand the idea of writing your goals correctly.

When i tell you to write down your goals i am not just asking you to write the basic headlines but i am actually asking you to write the full plan you will follow in order to reach those goals.

The plan should include: The steps you need to follow, the backup plan you will follow in case something went wrong and the ultimate benefits you will get when you reach these goals.

Why writing your goals can help you reach them

  • 1) Better state of mind Do yo know why we worry? Its because we feel unprepared to face the future. When you write down your plans your subconscious mind will worry less because it will find reassurance in the plan whenever its about to worry. The more you believe in your plan the less you will worry and the better state of mind you will experience.
  • 2) Helps in resource allocation: One of the plans i had 7 years ago was to become a millionaire. When i wrote down this goal my mind automatically started to help me find a way to reach it. Based on that plan i realized that a day job will never help me reach my goal and as a result i chose the path of internet business. its worth to mention that years later i became a dot com millionaire (see my book How i did it). When you write a plan your mind will automatically help you locate the right resources you need in order to make it happen
  • 3) Your unconscious mind will take you seriously: One of the main reasons for lack of motivation and indifference is that the subconscious mind of a person doesn't take him seriously. When you write down your plans your subconscious mind will believe that you are serious about it and as a result you will get more motivated
  • 4) The momentum will push you forward: When you take the first action towards a certain goal your momentum will usually keep you moving forward. Writing down a plan is always regarded as an action by the subconscious mind and that's why it results in some momentum that gives you energy to move forward.(see also The connection between motivation and momentum)
  • 5) You will become more motivated: The difference between a real goal and a mere wish is a written plan. Once you write down your plan your mind will understand that this goal is real and that its not just a wish, as a result you will become more motivated (see also How to visualize what you want)

Bonus tip

When you write down your goals you will start to become more conscious of the passage of time. Ask any successful person about the personality traits that made him successful and you will realize that a sense of time urgency was one of them.

When you don't write down your goals you wont be that conscious of time and as a result you might procrastinate. In other words you are more likely to reach your goals if you wrote them down.

I have managed to become a self made millionaire at the age of 28. This didn't happen by chance because i already wrote that goal down five years before i accomplished it. Becoming rich is not about luck, starting big or being intelligent but its all about having certain beliefs about money and life.

In The Ultimate guide to becoming rich i will teach you everything that you need to know in order to become rich.
