Goal setting. Have you ever struggled with setting goals?
But you know what goals do? They give us a plan.
Think of goals like this.
Picture a boat captain getting ready to embark on a transatlantic crossing. In order to get to their destination on time, and safely, the captain coordinates the trip on a log. This helps ensure the ship reaches its destination on time 99.9% of the time. Without this log, what are the ship’s chances? Maybe 50/50. Perhaps I am begin too generous.
Earl Nightengale said 95% of people in this world are unsuccessful (he said failures, but I think that’s a bit harsh, don’t you?). And you want to know why? Because they don’t set, you guessed it, goals.
Goals give us a roadmap. But it’s not just about writing them down. You have to feel them. You have to visualize your life as if you had already accomplished said goals. Why? Because feeling them brings on an emotion. An emotion we can hold onto, relate to.
So do yourself a favor.
Grab an index card, or a piece of paper, and a pen, and write down a goal. Or three. Ask yourself, what is it that you truly want for your life? What have you always dreamed of your life becoming?
Write down these goals, and share them with no one, other than yourself.
Read this card when you first wake, and again before bed. Take it with you through out the day and glance at it every chance you get. Start to feel this goal becoming a reality, and picture how your life would be once you accomplish it.
Do this for 30 days. That’s it.
At first it will be challenging. I promise you this. But after consistent practice, you will start to believe. Why? Because we become what we think. And if we asketh, so shall you receiveth.
