“A goal is a DREAM with a deadline.” – Napoleon Hill

Everyone’s goal is to stop dreaming and start doing, yet we all know so well the countless obstacles that bar the way. Setting goals can be a constructive practice that adds to one’s happiness but if we want to make things happen, some things have to change and one of them is how we state our goals.

A study by Melanie Rudd, Jennifer Aaker, and Michael North distinguished the difference between concrete and abstract goals. In one experiment, they asked participants to try to make someone smile or try to make someone happier. The former gives concrete instruction while the latter is abstract. Intriguingly, results show that people did better and felt happier pursuing the concrete goals!

One grave mistake we make in setting goals is the lack of concreteness, making them seem unattainable. By simply breaking them into sections and stating our goals as specific as possible, we can have a better chance of achieving them. Unfortunately, we tend to underestimate the value of concrete targets, thinking that dreaming of travelling the world is already enough. Make it concrete instead by listing the places you want to see and determine which country to visit first. This way, you can focus on one place, and then another, until you have circled the globe!

To quote world-acclaimed novelist Paulo Coelho: “Whenever you want to achieve something, keep your eyes open, concentrate and make sure you know exactly what it is you want. No one can hit their target with their eyes closed.”

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
