Success Plan

Article

If you believe in the Law of Attraction you may be familiar with the famous quote by Napoleon Hill: ’Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve!’

You may also be familiar with another quote of Napoleon Hill’s: ‘All achievements, all earned riches, have their beginning in an idea!’

My understanding of these quotes, in simple terms, is that our current circumstances are created by what we thought and believed in our past.  And we can create our future, subject to this concept.

As a recent convert to the principles of the Law of Attraction, and an online entrepreneur, I have become very conscious of my thoughts, particularly in relation to my business.

The concept of setting goals is a necessary part of any business. It is not only beneficial for motivational purposes but essential for future planning.

Here lies the question regarding the use of the word - goal, in applying the Law of Attraction. According to Collins, Australian Dictionary: the meaning of the word - goal, is aim; and the meaning of the word - aim, is intend.

Now that explanation is fairly straight forward. However, if we set a goal, won’t it always be something we are aiming or intending to do? Won’t it always be a goal and never actually reach a conclusion? Isn’t the concept of the Law of Attraction that we must truly believe we have achieved what we desire before we achieve it? How can we believe we have achieved what it is we desire if we put it in the category of an aim or intention.

How about this for an idea! What if we were to replace the word - goal, with the word - success?

Once again, according to the dictionary, we find that the meaning of the word - success, is achievement of something attempted! And, the word - achievement, something accomplished!

Changing the word goal, to success, implies that you have already achieved your desires. I don’t know about you, but I like the idea of a success plan, instead of a goal. And I feel like I have already created a more prosperous and happy future. To your success!
