For more information this topic see In order to understand the process of setting personal goals, it is necessary to have a clear picture of the functioning of the mind. It can be thought of comprising of two parts- the conscious and the subconscious mind. The responsibility of the conscious mind is to be aware of the current situations and it is the sub conscious mind that keeps all information regarding all other things.

It is in the subconscious mind that the personality of the person, the feelings, habits and thoughts are stored. The conscious-mind can be controlled. However, it takes a lot of effort and determination to reprogram and direct the subconscious mind. In order to control it, smart personal goal should be set and there are some guidelines that are helpful in controlling the subconscious mind.

An important guideline of an effective goal-setting is that the goals should be set smartly. This means that the goals should be

  • specific
  • measurable
  • attainable
  • rewarding
  • timely.

If one neglects any one of the goals, they are bound to fail as the main force that drives one towards goals or holds one back, is the sub conscious mind. These set goals should be set in the subconscious mind and it should accept these goals. They are necessary criteria for the sub conscious mind.

When dealing with the basics of goal setting it is indeed critical to make sure that the correct and strong foundation is set and that we ask ourselves how does the subconscious mind work and how can we understand it and get to grips with its workings in order to determine the direction of our lives.

Everybody wants more, we all want more as it is a natural human instinct to want to grow, improve, explore and to expand. Unfortunately unleashing mind power is only exercised by the minority of the population as the majority choose to follow the status quo and without goal setting being an integral part of their lives.

In order to start the reprogramming of your subconscious mind and to determine the direction of our lives it is recommended that you start by writing down in hand all the desired outcomes for your life. Do not question yourself how it will come about because at the outset all you need to know is what you want. When we consider how does the subconscious mind work ? we could make the parallel question how does my car work ? when all we need to know is to keep it filled with petrol and oil and the essentials.

The same with the subconscious mind, just be clear what you want – write it down, revisit it everyday and this will start the process along with the law of attraction for you to create the life which you desire.
