The Thing About Goals
Setting goals is the highest level of activity that we can do for ourselves.
When we create goals we are essentially giving ourselves the freedom to choose how we want to live. And, because we have so many choices available to us today, having goals help us to stay focused.
While ideally, most of us would like nothing more than to solely focus on accomplishing our goals, the reality is there are lots of moving parts in our lives like work, family, relationships…..etc.
If I asked you to close your eyes for a moment and picture a giraffe in your minds-eye, that would be pretty simple to do and if I asked you to picture your favorite car, it probably wouldn’t take much effort. Now, if I asked you to picture a vision for yourself of where you would like to be in 6 months, or a year from now, that might be a bit more challenging.
Maybe you’re thinking, how can I picture where I’m going to be in 6 months or even a year from now, when so many things are changing.
The truth is, having goals help us to stay focused. If you have a goal in your mind, then you have a vision, and with a clear vision comes the momentum you need to get after it.
Everything worth having in life, whether it’s mentally, emotionally, physically or spiritually starts with having a goal.
The question you have to ask yourself before jumping in is: Are you positioned to reach your goal?
And since the road to success is through commitment, I’ve created a blueprint to help you successfully accomplish your goal.
Take a look at these 10 components towards mapping out your goals, and think about where you’re at right now, in this moment, and what it will take (and what you can do!) to get you across the finish line.
Remember if the plan doesn’t work, change the plan but never the goal.
