Life lessons Day 1 - Goals

I started a project on Anchor yesterday called project Life Lessons. The first question was...

What is the best way, to go about achieving your goals in life?

And this was my response:

The first step to achieving any goal, is to be clear about what you want to achieve and to focus on it intently... In the brain we have what is known as the reticular activating system and what that does, is it helps us to identify things in our environment that can contribute to the fulfillment of our aspirations... I believe this is one of natures most formidable tools that everyone of us possesses, but it only works when we're clear about our goals and believe we are capable of achieving what it is we're setting out to achieve... Remember to stay focused, be clear in your intentions and in time, the path will become apparent and you will reach that goal.
