"Without goals, and plans to reach them, you are like a ship that has set sail with no destination."
You can program yourself for success using goals and plans. A goal is something you want to achieve. A plan is your specific way of achieving that goal. Both are ideas from your mind.
First, you must decide what you want to happen - in your spiritual life, in your relationships, with your health, in your financial life, and even your recreation and hobbies.
Then you must plan your way, define easy steps to take toward your goals, keep focused on each goal.
Then you take the very first step, actually take the action required to achieve each goal. And another step every day, be persistent, stay focused.
Measure and reward your success – things that get measured get done, things that get rewarded get done again.
Don't demand perfection in your goal setting and achievement, that's not really "human."
Feeling great about those things you have accomplished creates in you the spirit to dream new goals, create new plans, take action and focus on them to achieve your goals.
Now, what are your goals and plans?
