Goal Setting Workshop part two from MindStore

Set Goals with MindStore to ensure you score everytime.

Welcome to day two of our Goals Setting and Achieving workshop.

In the past people who have worked with us say they do sit down and write goals for the next year. Then nothing happens. I say that’s because it is not enough to set goals and write them down, you need a process some tools to make sure you keep being inspired by your Goals and remain committed to achieving them even once the challenges and demands on your time and self doubt and most importantly fear creep in.

If you think about it if we could eliminate fear so that we could set goals knowing with certainty that they would be achieved we would all be champion goal setters and achievers. However the fear of getting out of our comfort zone to grow to achieve our goals, daring to believe that we are capable and worthy, are the biggest barriers to us all achieving our goals.

The good news is that part of our process we share, is to give you tools to make sure that once you set your goals you have the confidence and commitment to see them through and achieve them.

By now you should have in your notebook or scrap of paper a wheel of life filled in which may have highlighted areas that need attention and also on another sheet a GRATIFICATION LIST  with 10 things that you are thankful and grateful for in your life at present. This gratification list and wheel of life will have been in your consciousness over night, so now we are ready for the second step.

We need to make space for the future to come in, and clear out things that might be blocking out the future.

As we know the New Year is fast approaching, but when I take time to reflect back on 2014 I cannot believe how fast it has gone. When I was putting the xmas tree up in early December I couldn’t believe it was a year since I last did this, life goes so fast it felt like only a few months. I am sure the same is true in your experience.

Here’s the point, 2015 will pass in  the blink of an eye for you and for your family friends and colleagues 2015 will pass to in a flash too, whether you have a bunch of goals your committed to or not.

Truth is those of us who have set goals and are committed to them and using our techniques will have an entirely different year from those who do not set goals.

What happens to you and I the goal setters is that once you commit, once you have goals slowly but surely people places and  opportunities to achieve the goals are attracted to you. If other people who are not reading this or looking for this type of opportunity, friends family collegues who don’t set goals and see this as odd or strange then there year will whizz by too. The people places and opportunities that could completely change their life’s, will pass them by without them even being aware of them. What’s worse is that if you do not set goals you will find yourself helping others achieve their goals. Isn’t that a waste of your energy, time potential and capability?

We know people like us who set goals are in the minority, your one of them and I urge you to share it. Why have this technique, this secret and not share it. Who do you know at work at home or socially who could do with this help?


This next step is a critical part of the process, the ELIMINATION LIST.


10 things you will eliminate from your life starting in January and have them going out your life as the year goes forward.

Things that no longer serve you or working against you. Commit to finding 10 and make the commitment to follow this through.

bin bags to make space for your future

In this session today, create the physical space for the future. Get a bunch of bin bags, commit to clearing out rooms in the house, cupboards, spaces where things we not longer need or use lurk, we all have a junk drawer in the kitchen!

There will be things you use but also lots of things that you don’t don’t use and or broken or don’t work, perished elastic bands, broken pencils, chewed pens with no ink, bent paper clips, instructions for things you don’t have anymore. Get that drawer open and start filling the bin bag, its full of things that you won’t use this year or the year after.

The truth is these spaces will fill up again, but they can’t just now, until you empty it out and make space.

Under the stairs, under your bed, is it clear or full of things and your sleeping resting above them, think about that. What do you have in the attic that’s weighing down on you in some way?

Take the stuff to the charity shops, or take it to the local waste disposal, get them in a pile out of way and get rid of them certainly before end of year.

room tidy up bin bags for new year elimination list

Also I strongly recommend wardrobes, clothes that you haven’t worn this year, you know which ones they are….that Kaftan will never come back into fashion!

Clothes that don’t fit you affect your self esteem, get rid of them. You will feel better and believe it or not because you have space now it will fill up again as you get into a process of buying things again that make you look and feel better. Boosting your self esteem in the process.

Other places include the garden, the shed, clear it out, the garage, the man cave!, what’s tucked out in the way. Get as much as you can cleared out . Clear out photos on your laptop pc, clear out old files you don’t need DELETE them off your laptop and PC, on your smart phone DELETE old apps you don’t use.

Then  when “the bells come” as we say in Scotland  at the stroke of midnight  on the 1st January you will know that you are ready to attract into your life, like a vacuum, the people places opportunities and material things to achieve your Goals for 2015 and beyond.

Trust this process, trust me, this process works powerfully.

Get the bin bags out and have fun!

In your note book , journal, take notes, get the Elimination List written up after your Gratification List.

Keep your  notebook to maybe even do some more activities with MindStore in the future.

Tomorrow we begin the process of identitfying what might be our goals for 2015.

Have a wonderful day, look forward to sharing more of our MindStore Goals Setting and Achieving Tools tomorrow.

For those of you that have known me for a long time these photos might send a shudder of fear through you lol. For those of you who are new in my life this is the goal setting I’ve used for 20yrs. This year is the end of a 10yr block so time to plan next 10. whatever I write here happens so it’s scary but exciting. Family and Friends, brace yourself this is when things go a little bit mental and you all start panicking lol. Most powerful little bit of paper in my life!

Goal Setting Workshop part one

Part one of the MindStore workshop. extract from Blog posted by Jack Black, founder of MindStore.
This workshop expands on the tips on the February MindStore Newsletter.

After 25 Years, half a million people, hundreds and hundreds of companies covering every sector and at every level of their organisations – if what I have been teaching was nonsense I would have been found out long before now.

So just do it! Just get into the swing with the global phenomena of resolutions and goal setting going on over the comings days.

Do it the MindStore way and more importantly commit to practice the reinforcement techniques and create your best year yet. Become empowered to deal with no matter what. Attract the right people at the right time, the solutions and ideas required and sometimes with wonder and joy manifest, yes manifest what you truly desire.

Follow the process below and simply trust it. I haven’t got the time in an post to go into the whys and the wherefores; so please just get on with it. If you are new to our approach then maybe just decide to trust the person who tipped you off.

So first – If you haven’t already done so do some clearing out. Create space for the future in your crammed up life. Empty out your rubble drawer, you know the one, it’s probably in the kitchen with the paper clip a rubber band, the pen that doesn’t work, the instructions to the kettle and all the other stuff that’s trapped in there. Just turn it upside down and empty it into the bin. It will like your cleared out wardrobe, garage, garden hut, loft, computer files, contact lists etc. etc. just fill up with new stuff. Please understand if there is no space where can new stuff go? And be absolutely honest with yourself most of the stuff you don’t need nor will you ever really use again.

Second – Plot a MindStore Wheel of Life. To do this just draw a big circle with 12 spokes. Give each spoke a scale of 1-10 with 1 at the centre and 10 on the circumference. Give yourself a 1-10 score for each of the following 12 key areas of life (trust me these are the ones that count!).

Marriage or Partnership – Family – Social life – Personal Development- Career- Attitude – Health – Finances – Home – Happiness – Recreation – Spiritual.

Once you have completed this exercise you will then see where you are out of balance, and therefore it will be obvious where some of your goals need to be set.

Third – Create a gratification list. Find 3 things for each spoke of the wheel that you are genuinely grateful for. You can do this as a chart with the headings – Item, Why it’ so important to you, How you can enhance it.

Fourth – Take the time and its only 11 short minutes to write out at least 30 goals. This is absolutely critical and it must be done with the correct intention. Again I have no space in this post to explain why – so please just do it! Set the timer on your phone or an alarm on your clock. You can even play some nice relaxing music as it may help you with this process.

Starts writing out the goals you already have in mind – however you will find that you soon run out of them! Then look at your Wheel of Life and it will become obvious where you can find some more. You will again run out of ideas so now just imagine that you are given 100 million pounds in cash if you could finish with at least 30 goals inside what’s remaining of the 11 minutes. Just start to “make them up” especially write down the ones that come into your mind and that you are already telling yourself are impossible. If it comes into your mind then accept it and write it down. Please just trust the process.

Now leave these 30 plus goals for 24 hours or at least overnight. Read them to yourself just before bed even begin to imagine them being achieved already.

Next step and it’s a big step -the next day filter or narrow down the goals into 7 primary ones. Now here is the great MindStore approach we don’t concern ourselves with HOW we are going to achieve them, we don’t even think about a strategy, we do however take the time to identify and even write out WHY we really, really desire them.

Once you have identified the 7 key goals write them out once again with a full explanation to yourself as to why you really want them to come into your life. Do all of this over the coming days.

I will email you the second phase of this process – which works and will work for you too!

If you want to send this to friends and family then feel free – all I ask is you let them know its source.

All the very best and a Happy, Prosperous and Healthy 2014 to you and all you care for.
