The three keys to living without limits have always been the
same. They are clarity, competence, and concentration. Goal
setting will help you live without limits. Learning how to
set goals is an art. Learn why setting goals is a necessity.
Here are 7 Must-have conditions to set goals.

1. State your goal in positive terms.
People often set a goal in terms of what they don't want! "I
don't want to smoke, to be angry..." It's "what I want to
do or want to be" See the difference? Hear the nuance? Are you
ready to state positively every goal you want to achieve?

2. Make sure the goal can be self-initiated and maintained
The goal doesn't depend on the attitude of your neighbor,
on the behavior of your wife or family. The success of
your goal must depend on you, and you alone.

3. Your goal must be sensory specific
Here comes the importance of clarity. The clearer the
picture, the more compelling and the more attractive it
is, the greater the drive to reach your final
destination. Act as if the goal is already achieved.
Make a very clear image, in rich details, and
you will be so enthusiastic that you will automatically
attract the solution.

4. State the context of the goal.
"Where and when will my goal be achieved?" The answer can be
obvious for some goals but not at all for others. Try to
be as specific as possible.

5. Run a Quality Control check on the goal to ensure
balance in all areas of your home/work life.
Above all, you don't want to lose your balance. When you
run this 'Quality Control Check", you play a win-win

Everything is one system and the whole system must win.
You will find peace of mind in knowing that you are
in harmony with the system. Step back and look at
all areas of your life. Is your goal worth it?

6. State the resources needed to achieve the goal: what is
the price to pay?
There is always a price to pay, for everything. There is
always some kind of sacrifice to make when you set a
worthy goal.

In this step, you will define all that you will need, in
terms oftime, money and energy.

7. State the value and the consistency of the goal.
Why do I want to reach this goal? Why is it important to
me? Is this goal in harmony with my vision, beliefs
and values?

Answer these questions. If you don't seem to be satisfied
with theanswers, maybe you should change your goal.
Set a new goal until you feel it is in harmony with your
passion, vision or mission.

When you properly set a goal with this model, two important
things occur. First, you are in total harmony with your
vision, belief and value systems because your entire "You"
agrees and offers no resistance. Second, you are programmed
to succeed.

Indeed, your very (whole) neurology and physiology are both
instructed to drive you towards obtaining your desired goal.
You're totally focused.
Again, The three keys to living without limits have always
been the same. They are clarity, competence, and concentration.
When you set crystal clear goals and you respect the
7 must-have conditions, you can literally live without
limits, can't you?
