Arfeen Khan gives a talk where he shares that goal setting is a waste of time. In order to change your life you have to change your identity first not set goals.
I know from my own experience that goal setting is a waste of time until you are able to identify and believe you are able to achieve the goal you have set. Who are you, what is it you want to do, how do you identify with yourself. If you have the dream to achieve great success you have to ensure that how you identify with your self is aligned with what it is you want to achieve. Create an identity of your own warrior, the image that you will be able to take on any challenge life throws at you.
For example, let’s say that you have a life goal, the dream and vision of becoming a successful millionaire business person in your chosen field, who makes over £1,000,000 a year. Unless you are able to identify yourself with being that person, the vision and dreams you have are unlikely to happen.
You can change your life far quicker than you may realise, once you take on the identity that is aligned with your dream goal and vision. The world you experience and the life you have is merely a projection of your inner movie, the movie you play in your inner mind, beliefs, ideas and perceptions.
If you want to change your life, you first have to change your thoughts.
