I was given this Goal Contract several years ago and have used it occasionally with moderate results. I was given it 2 months ago again and this time paid attention to the back as well as the front. (I know, I know, I’m not always the sharpest tool in the shed and it takes me a while to catch on! ) The front is all about the goal, but the back includes a simple little affirmation that I have been reading every morning for the last 2 months and you know what? It is working! So here is the verbiage on each side:
By ____________ I will have earned a minimum of $____________________
I will have earned this amount as a result of giving the most efficient service of which I am capable, rendering the fullest possible quantity and the best possible quality of service in the capacity of: ________________________
This is an irrevocable contract that I make with myself.
Each and every morning when I wake up, I will awaken with a very positive attitude. This positive attitude will be with me all day. I’ll be aware of negative people I come into contact with during the day but as I become aware of them, which will be immediately, they will only stimulate and motivate me to be more positive. I’ll be aware of any negative thought which happens to slip into my mind, but I’ll immediately reject it as a useless thought.
If you would like to have this in a format that is easy to print front and back so that it looks like a mini contract just send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
I recommend that you print it out so that you can place the front next to the back and read both sides each morning as you are getting ready. You will be amazed at the impact it has on your day!
