I have just made this new 59 Seconds video about the best way of using visualisation to achieve your goals – hope you enjoy it!


  1. I like that, it explains why I have lost nearly 4 stone in weight, but now feel stuck, as at the beginning I was focusing on the diet control, but lately have been focusing on my goal weight. Thanks Richard.

  2. If we believe in ourselves then we trust and know and believe in what we are capable of.

    The journey we make to reach our goals is in essence the only reality we experience. Mystics and philosophers and evolutionary psychologists all agree upon this.

    Therefore Richard’s insight which he embeds in this blog post is both mundane and trivial and well-known while at the same time revolutionary for those encountering the idea for the first time.

    I myself here have made this point several times and usually been rebuffed by those who want to chant the “answers” to puzzles rather than revel in and rejoice over the process by which we reach within and find the solutions that are already waiting fully formed for us.

    It is fascinating to see how main stream psychotherapy is slowly catching up with the wisdom of the ages – such as that embodied in sciences such as astrology and homeopathy and gnosticism and such like.

    We live in a fascinating age. It is indeed the start of the age of Aquarius and many splendid wonders are now everyday happenstance.

    Some of us have waited along time for this day. I am happy it has arrived at last.

  3. I got into Zen and started the get a goal by not trying to get the goal.
    It sounds wrong, but I NEVER set goals as it closes you off or narrows you focus so that you miss out on targets that are just as good as the impossible you may be striving for. And as you go thru your life ALWAYS do your best, shoveling shit is no less honorable then building advanced circuits. As a teen I heard of Bell labs and thought what a neat place to go. But by not striving to get there, I was able see other opportunities that directed my life thru great fun and careers that got me a loving wife, great family, fun experiences and a job at Bell Labs as an Failure Analysis Engineer, AWESOME LIFE!!!!!

  4. From: http://www.inc.com/jeff-haden/8-habits-of-remarkably-successful-people.html

    Average success is often based on setting average goals.

    Decide what you really want: to be the best, the fastest, the cheapest, the biggest, whatever. Aim for the ultimate. Decide where you want to end up. That is your goal.

    [And this is the inportant bit for me:] Then you can work backwards and lay out every step along the way.

    Never start small where goals are concerned. You’ll make better decisions–and find it much easier to work a lot harder–when your ultimate goal is ultimate success.

    1. A truly successful person would not stoop to habits.

      For them each response would be anew and afresh and exactly appropriate to the situation. They would not rely n falling back on canned and learned responses. We successful humans are not rote machines. We see and we respond spontaneously in the moment in the most effective way each time.
