EXERCISING TO EXPLORE GOAL REALIZATION
SELF HELP GUIDE
Exercising to explore goal realization can help you discover you. While you may think I am asking you to visit the gym, exercise extends further. What I mean is that you must exercise your brain to find answers, explore possibilities and the like. So get off those running shoes and pull up a chair, since you are going to start by relaxing.
Did you know that the way you think revolves around how you see things, what you hear, smell, taste, and breathe? Likewise, how you think affects your mentality overall. Thus, the mind has to have moderate levels of oxygen to perform comfortable. Thus, when the mind is bottled down it is taking oxygen and requires you to take breaths and relax to bring the oxygen level back up. Now, let’s consider the exercise that leads to goal realization:
Sit in a comfortable chair, sitting up straight. Relax and hold your head upward or straight while looking ahead. Cup your hands in your lap without crossing them. Now, while in position close your eyes, allow the body, and mind to feel at ease. If you notice tension in the body areas, let it go. Now take a few deep breathes, inhale, exhale. Make sure you inhale, breathing deep so that it targets the stomach. Once you feel relief, you will next pucker the lips as though you are going to whistle and exhale. Now puff forceful three times to release any other tension. Following the steps again until you reach the count of five, or three if you choose, now observe carefully as your abdomen rises and falls.
Once you are relaxed and finish observing your abdomen move onto allows your thoughts to flow. Think of goals. What do you think, see, hear, and smell, taste, touch, and so forth as you think of goals. I literally think of a woman I spoke with the other day asking me what goals were. I was talking about the subject I was writing and she said, “What are goals.” I hope this is not you, since this is an ignorant person out of touch with reality.
To get started set a goal for tomorrow. What are your plans for Memorial Day? Do your plans have areas that could lead to bad consequences? Many people plan to drink in my area on the holiday. Is this your plan? Did you look at the consequences of your plans carefully? Did you plan to stay at home, or employ a designated driver?
Anyway, this is a goal or plan that only lasts a day, but after the day is over you will have other plans to follow. Plans harmonize with goals. If you set goals, you have to write plans to reach your goals. As you start to write, you will discover new ideas, while visualizing self in the moment. This is all part of exercising the brain to set goals, make plans, and achieve the goals.
If you haven’t set, goals for self get a calendar. I want you to write each day in that calendar what you plan to do. As you set, the day plans on that day put forth the effort to achieve the daily goal. Continue until one month later you completed all the plans you have written. As you complete the list look back over the daily goals, plans and actions you put forth to achieve the goals. Think of the consequences, actions, feelings, accomplishments and the like. Now think how achieving your daily plans made you feel. Then take out the calendar and set plans for the following month.
