By looking into each of these phrases try to find goals, dreams or contracts for yourself to achieve, writing down your goals is a key factor in being motivated and getting what you want out of life.  Writing down what you want out of life helps you crystallize it in your mind, and give you something concrete to be focus on.

Print THE CARD THAT KEEPS YOU ON TRACK and write down everything you want in life.  What you want to learn, what you want to earn, where you want to live, where you want to vacation, who you want to be friends with, the kind of relationship you want to have, the kind of family life you want to have, spiritual development, academic achievement, professional designations, weight, level of health, community participation, language learning, pets, business, everything. Use a pen and write, as the physical act of writing will help imbed these goals into your subconscious mind.

Then let the magic flow into your life!
