Goal Setting.

Successful people have written goals. It is a scientific fact that you will achieve a higher percentage of your goals by imagining the successful achievement of those goals. When you write your goals and use mental imagery to focus your thinking, you can actually rewire your brain so the neurons form new connections and make new pathways. This helps you achieve a higher percentage of your goals.
