Have you ever bought a new outfit or car, then started potting it everywhere? Surely it's always been around you. Why haven't you noticed it until now?

Quite simply, a portion of your brain is responsible for screening out all information except what's essential to your survival and success. So much that could help you achieve your dreams is never noticed or utilized simply because you haven't defined (taught your brain what's important!) your goals with clarity.

Once you do, however, you'll have triggered your Reticular Activating System (RAS). This part of your mind becomes like a magnet, attracting any information or opportunities that can help you achieve your goals more rapidly. Tripping this powerful neurological switch can literally transform your life in a matter of days or weeks.


We all have goals, whether we know it or not. No matter what they are, they have a profound effect on our lives. Yet some of our goals, such as "I need to pay my lousy bills", lack any inspiration. The secret of unleashing your true power is setting goals that are exciting enough that truly inspire your creativity and ignite your passion.

Right now, consciously choose your goals. Brainstorm everything worth pursuing. Then pick a goal that excites you the most, something that will get you up early and keep you up lat. Assign a deadline for achieving it, and write a paragraph describing why you absolutely must attain it by then. Is it grand enough to challenge you? To push you beyond your limits? To uncover your true potential?
