Self Improvement and the Power of Why

The first step to self Improvement and achieving any goal is to decide exactly what we want. If we are not totally clear about what we actually want it is impossible to make plans and take action to achieve it.

It is also vital to know WHY we want whatever it is we want, because its our whys that determine the strength of our desire, and our ultimate success in achieving our goals.

For example, say you have decided you want to save or raise $10,000 in the next six months for no reason in particular, expect perhaps that you are lousy at saving and you want to develop that ability.

Compare that to the why of parents who needs $10,000 within six months for a life saving operation for their only child? Which of these two whys is most likely to evoke the overwhelming desire and iron-willed determination to take the actions necessary for success?

This is not to suggest that goals will only be achieved if they are for altruistic reasons. We can achieve any honest goal we set for ourselves if we give ourselves a big enough reason to achieve it.

The least important part is the how. When we decide what we want, and our reasons for wanting it are strong and compelling to us, and we fully expect to succeed, the how will come to us. Our conscious and subconscious minds will focus on our goals, and what we spend most of our time thinking about we will attract into our lives.

This will allow us to make the plans and take the actions that will culminate in us reaching our goals. We will also become connected to the abundance of the universe. We will often be assisted by unexpected events and opportunities, or meet people that can help us. This doesnt mean we will reach our goals with little effort on our part - theres no doubt hard work and taking action are a critical part of the process. However, when we have a big enough why and focus on how it will feel when we achieve our goals, it often wont really feel like hard work.

If this sounds fanciful and too simple to be true, self improvement experts can explain the process in more detail and provide tools that will help us to harness these powers. The important thing to know is that in does work with compelling enough whys and total belief that we will succeed.
