Book Review: How to Set Goals and Actually Achieve Them
By: David Cameron Gikandi
We all have goals. Some of us actually manage to achieve a few of them in the time we set out for that success. So why is it that some people are more successful in achieving their goals than others? The answer to that question can be found in:
How to Set Goals and Actually ACHIEVE Them, 3 Steps to Effortlessly Achieve All Your Goals for Life, Financial, Health, and Relationships
By: David Cameron Gikandi
Often we set goals that have no real value or goals that relate to some inconsequential objective like losing 10 pounds or completing a task by a specified time. Yes, these are goals, but not the goals Gikandi suggests we concentrate on in his book.
In order to live a consistant life of success, Gikandi says we have to start at the beginning and learn to understand how we think. As many followers of the Law Of Attraction know, the thoughts in our minds create the end results in our lives. But how do we control what we think? And, how do we quiet those thoughts we don’t want to be thinking about?
How to Set Goals and Actually ACHIEVE Them took me through a step by step method of learning starting from the very basics of my physical and spiritual makeup. Working up from there, though my growth as a youngster, Gikandi showed me how life around me established determining factors that have had an affect on my life. He suggests that everyone has been dragged through this minefield as we grew and that those factors have an affect on everything we do, think, and ultimately achieve.
So how do we undo the negative effects of that minefield? Ah, that is the lesson plan included with the pages of this book. As one hwo has read dozens of books and literally thousand of articles on The Law of Attraction, Mindset, Achieving goals, etc, I found Gikandi’s book to be extremely informative and enlightening. He managed to not only hold my attention, but to change some some of my thinking on the subject.
Further, How to Set Goals and Actually ACHIEVE Them got me to review my own life from birth to now, looking for those hidden programs place in my soul by those who surrounded me as I grew. I found myself creating new goal lists from a totally different point of view. Previously I’d have established a monetary or material goal, written the desired goal statement, set a date and worked to that end. This time I created a list that centered more on the emotions of having the said goal right now, rather than the step I would take to achieve the goal.
Each goal statement started with the words “I am” and continued to say what the goal was, how I felt having it already, with descriptions and pictures. I’ve done this in the past, but this time my efforts were much more inclusive. The feeling after each new goal was written was quite astounding.
How many goals do you have? How many should you have? According to Gikandi the most successful people have thousands, yes thousands! I not only found that hard to believe, but had difficulty listing more than 20. It’s no wonder that many of us don’t achieve our goals. We have set out in the wrong direction, have the wrong desires, have not become fully and emotionally involved in our goals, and don’t have enough to matter to the universe.
I will re-read this book often to find little tidbits that I might have missed and to stay on track.
