People say that when you keep on saying something or when you keep thinking of something that you want to happen, it will happen. This also works for goal setting, in fact it’s a great tip to make you reach your set goals. The reason why this works is because it reminds you of your goal as well as it keeps you focused on what you should exert effort on.
When do you do this? As often as you can. But one good time to do it is at the start of your day. Before you head out to work say your goal or life goals out loud. For example, “I will travel the world in two years!” Say it with conviction like it was the first time you discovered that this is what you wanted to do. Also, notice that there’s a time element to what you say, the reason for this is so that you will also be reminded of when you want it to happen. Just saying your goal without any specific time will leave it hanging and you might not give enough effort to pursue it.
