The Law of Clarity
by: Brian Tracy

Clarity accounts for probably 80% of success and happiness. Lack of clarity is probably more responsible for frustration and underachievement than any other single factor. That’s why we say that “Success is goals, and all else is commentary.” People with clear, written goals, accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine. This is true everywhere and under all circumstances.

The Three Keys to High Achievement
You could even say that the three keys to high achievement are, “Clarity, Clarity, Clarity,” with regard to your goals. Your success in life will be largely determined by how clear you are about what it is you really, really want.

Write and Rewrite Your Goals
The more you write and rewrite your goals and the more you think about them, the clearer you will become about them. The clearer you are about what you want, the more likely you are to do more and more of the things that are consistent with achieving them. Meanwhile, you will do fewer and fewer of the things that don’t help to get the things you really want.

The Seven Step Process for Achieving Goals
Here, once more, is the simple, seven-step process that you can use to achieve your goals faster and easier than ever before.

First, decide exactly what you want in each area of your life. Be specific!

Second, write it down, clearly and in detail;

Third, set a specific deadline. If it is a large goal, break it down into subdeadlines and write them down in order;

Fourth, make a list of everything you can think of that you are going to have to do to achieve your goal. As you think of new items, add them to your list;

Fifth, organize the items on your list into a plan by placing them in the proper sequence and priority;

Sixth, take action immediately on the most important thing you can do on your plan. This is very important!

Seventh, do something every day that moves you toward the attainment of one or more of your important goals. Maintain the momentum!

Join the Top 3%
Fewer than three percent of adults have written goals and plans that they work on every single day. When you sit down and write out your goals, you move yourself into the top 3% of people in our society. And you will soon start to get the same results that they do.

Review Your Goals Daily
Study and review your goals every day to be sure they are still your most important goals. You will find yourself adding goals to your list as time passes. You will also find yourself deleting goals that are no longer as important as you once thought. Whatever your goals are, plan them out thoroughly, on paper, and work on them every single day. This is the key to peak performance and maximum achievement.

Action Exercises
Here is how you can apply this law immediately:

1. Make a list of ten goals that you would like to achieve in the coming year. Write them down in the present tense, as though a year has passed and you have already accomplished them.

2. From your list of ten goals, ask yourself, “What one goal, if I were to accomplish it, would have the greatest positive impact on my life?” Whatever it is, put a circle around this goal and move it to a separate sheet of paper.

3. Now, practice the seven-step method described above on this goal. Set a deadline, make a plan, and put it into action and work on it every day. Make this goal your major definite purpose for the weeks and months ahead.

Get ready for some amazing changes in your life.

Walking Strong

“Walk fast enough so that your heart rate stays near your optimal fat-burning zone.”

Being in top physical condition requires consistent cardiovascular training three to four days a week, plus two to three days of strength training. But it's not always an easy task to fit both activities into our already-hectic schedules. The solution? A workout that combines both into a total body-toning plan that builds muscle, burns fat and saves time. The workout we've designed includes brisk walking, which can be performed on a treadmill or on your favorite outdoor trail, and strength training with resistance or dynabands. Lightweight bands made of durable rubber are reasonably priced and can be purchased at any sporting goods store.

Many trainers recommend walking for cardio training because anyone can do it, and it places far less impact and strain on the body than running. It's perfect for people with weak joints or bad backs, and it involves a large number of muscles in the body. Remember to walk fast enough so that your heart rate stays near your optimal fat-burning zone. You shouldn't be out of breath, but you should be working hard enough to break a sweat.

For the resistance-training portion of the workout, use a dynaband or rubber tubing with handles. Rubber bands have long been used by physical therapists because they provide variable resistance, which is very therapeutic for muscles. This means that the amount of resistance changes throughout the range of motion of the exercise. A five-pound dumbbell, on the other hand, provides five pounds of resistance at every point of the exercise, which can place strain on certain areas of the muscle, especially if you've sustained an injury. It's beneficial to vary your strength workout with both forms of resistance training so you can create a healthier muscular structure.

If you're walking outside you can tie the lightweight, portable band around your waist. Remember to stretch before and after the workout and to drink lots of water so you'll stay hydrated. Click onto the next link - total body conditioning - for exercises that were designed specifically for the dynaband.

While walking don't forget to drink your water! What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored. Click here to order stevia powder. Now, start walking.


"When humans find themselves surrounded by nothing but objects, the response is always one of loneliness."

-- Brian Swimme

Soul lives through relationship and it is in soul that we find meaning. We can have meaningful relationships with people, animals and other beings, projects, ideas and ideals.

How much time do you devote to building relationships with things?

"Loneliness is caused by an alienation from life. It is a loneliness from your real self."

-- Maxwell Maltz

"No soul is desolate as long as there is a human being for whom it can feel trust and reverence."

-- George Eliot
