And this isn’t really news to any of you either. When you hear something you have a small amount of retention. When you read the same thing, your retention goes up somewhat. When you write your goal your success rate goes up quite a bit. When you see your goal daily, or even more, your success rate improves dramatically.
Why? Because we humans move toward and become like that which we see, hear, feel and envision being true about us. If you examine your spot in life right this moment you will see that this is indeed true. You get, most of the time, that which you actively seek.
We had a chat with a friend today who asked, “So what’s your team look like for the coming season?” We said, “It sure looks different than it did last year and we lost some firepower due to graduation. However, we have willing and able athletes and we know how to coach so we will be fine.” That is a goal statement.
But this is perhaps newsworthy. What do most young people (at least teenagers and up) look at 30-150 times a day? Yup, their phone. What if they put their goals on the screen saver? Potentially a game changer…
