How to Achieve Your Personal and Business Goals

Your mind will deliver to you what you focus on; what you think about. We need to tell it what we want, as often as possible, and be very clear.

In the morning, your brain waves are slow, and there is room for messages, signals and instructions to get through much more easily than during the middle of the day. This is when we should give it instructions.

Remember, lives are made up of years, years of weeks, weeks of days, days of moments. There is no future. There is only now. Now is where we can change our lives. Shooting the Arrow is planning your best day in your mind ahead of time, so you can go live it.

This exercise only needs to take ten minutes per day.

In the morning, get up out of bed and go to a quiet place. Get centered and comfortable. You can leave your eyes open if you don’t get distracted by things you see that cause your mind to wander; otherwise close them.

Shoot the Arrow at Exactly What You Want. Ask yourself questions and give your mind the answers by visualizing them. Feel yourself living the answer. See it. Be it.

  • What am I grateful for?
  • What do I want? What are my goals?
  • What do I have to do today to take the next important step to make what I want a reality?
  • Who on my team needs to know I care today?
  • What does my best day look like today?


That’s it.

There doesn’t have to be much more than that. You can ask the same questions day after day to remind yourself. Or you can change some questions from time to time.

This short exercise of Shooting the Arrow is part of the larger learning platform ­– The School of Entrepreneurship. For a Special Offer, click this link to join.
