Goals - Your Success Map
Is your success map taking you where you want to go in life?
Setting goals is the most important ingredient in achieving success.
It has been said many times, and it is worth saying again: You can't get to where you are going unless you know where it is!
Goals are the stepping stones to success. When set up properly, they are the ultimate success tools - they allow us to design and achieve optimal levels of satisfaction and happiness in all areas of our lives!
Unfortunately, too many people misunderstand the process, and as a result, never achieve the results they are “hoping” for.
It’s important to remember that a goal is not a wish - it is an intention.
Wishes vs Intentions
What’s the difference? A wish is passive – it is something you hope will come to you without any effort on your part!
An intention is active – it is something you actively pursue by taking deliberate and conscious action toward. As a general rule, wishes do not come true until you convert them into intentions!
How It Works
Whenever we set a goal, we create an intention to accomplish a specific result.
The process works by creating a focus point for our thoughts and behavior.
This focus point gives us direction, and allows us to move toward what we want, and to simultaneously let go of what we don’t want!
In other words, a good deal of our negativity and procrastination are naturally replaced by positive thoughts and actions, simply by creating and committing to a well-defined intention.
When set up properly, they stimulate our creativity, increase our energy levels, foster self-esteem and personal confidence, spur our levels of productivity, and put us on the fast-track to getting what we really want in life!
You can avoid costly success mistakes by taking some time to get clear on what it is you really want.
Develop An Organized Plan
The goal-setting process is about creating an organized plan to accomplish a specific result. Most goal-setting worksheets address the following basic steps:
- Define what you want
- Commit to it
- Work with limitations and obstacles
- Create an action plan
Success is never an accident! In order to achieve the results you want in life, it is essential to consistently take action.
