Do you have any money goals? If you are like most people, you do not have clear, specific, written money goals. Money Goals is the title of chapter 5 in my book, How to Attract Money Using Mind Power. Here’s the quote I open that chapter with:
“Nothing happens, no forward steps are taken until a goal is established. Without goals, individuals just wander through life. They stumble along, never knowing where they are going, so they never get anywhere.”
–David J. Schwartz, The Magic of Thinking Big, 1959
A money goal is a specific monetary outcome you intend to bring about. To set any goal, you need to be very precise about what it is you want. To set a money goal, you need to be very precise about how much money you want to bring into your life.
The money you want can be stated in terms of an income level or a net-worth figure. You can set one or both types of goals for yourself. And you can set multiple goals with different deadlines. For instance, you can have a six-month income goal, a two-year income goal, and a five-year net-worth goal. Oh, I mentioned deadlines. All goals have deadlines and money goals are no different. Will you always reach your money goals by their deadlines? Likely not. You can always put new deadlines on your goals when necessary. But deadlines are an important part of the goal-setting process.
When you set a clear money goal, you leave no doubt about exactly what you intend to bring about. You know, in your conscious mind, what you want. Your subconscious mind knows what you want. The universe knows what you want. You, your subconscious mind, and the universe have a direction to go in, a target to shoot for, and you are all on the same page. There’s a lot of power in that combination.
So, a money goal should be for a certain amount of money, for instance as an income level or net-worth figure. And a money goal should have a deadline for its attainment. There is another crucial step in the process though. Before you can rightly call your money goal an actual goal, you must write it down. There is pure metaphysical magic in writing goals down. Miracles happen. This is one of those “secrets” that those in the know all know.
Setting money goals is fairly easy to do, but most people never do it. Why? One likely reason is that they don’t want to commit themselves. It’s a big step to take. Once you commit yourself to a specific money goal, you basically put yourself on the spot to work towards achieving it, and you’ve taken away the comfortable ambiguity of a vague wish like, I’d like to have more money. You can’t fail to reach specific money goals you don’t have.
When you set specific money goals, you put yourself in a position where you’ll always know whether or not you’ve reached a goal yet and how close to it or how far from it you are. No ambiguity. No excuses. You’re either advancing towards the attainment of your money goals or you’re not. You’ve either reached your money goals or you haven’t. You may not always be where you would like to be in the process, but you’ll always know exactly where you are in the process.
Another reason people shy away from setting specific money goals is because they don’t want to have to decide on what those goals will be. So many factors come into play. One big one is that people generally have no idea what their money goals should be. They’re not used to thinking in such specific terms as money goals require. People don’t want to set money goals that are too low, but they don’t want to set ones that are too high either. And, really, people most often don’t know what they want. It’s likely they’ve never seriously considered being able to have it, so they have no idea what it is.
A written income money goal could look like this: My goal is to be earning a minimum of one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) yearly by m/d/y. A written net-worth money goal could look like this: My goal is to have a net worth of three million dollars ($3,000,000) by m/d/y. I’m not asking you to set any money goals right now, although you are certainly welcome to do so if you want to. It would be a good idea to make the figures small enough as not to be beyond you’re present ability to conceive and believe as being within the realm of possibility for you, but far enough beyond your present reality to get you excited.
What I know is that most reading this will not commit to any money goals on paper right now. And that’s OK. No pressure. Keep reading these articles. Get more familiar with what I’m teaching here. Build up your levels of desire, belief and expectancy. Improve the nature, quality, and vibratory rate of your money mindset. You’ll get there. You’ll get to where you want to be. You’ll sit down at some point and you’ll put some good, solid, money goals down on paper. I’m not rushing you.
The one thing I do want you to commit to now, though, is to continue to read this series of articles. We are a quarter of the way through. Five articles down, 15 to go. We’ve covered a lot of ground in five articles. And we’re going to cover a whole lot more in the next 15.
Here’s another quote I use in the book:
“It is difficult to stress…the prime importance of a goal as a necessary ingredient to success.”
–Melvin Powers, Dynamic Thinking, 1955
