I just read an article on Goals that said, ''Setting goals are worthless.''
What kind of idiotic statement is that? Pardon my use of words but to say that goals
are worthless is insane.
Throughout history we have found that setting goals and achieving them are what separates the leaders from the followers. The naysayer will talk about how things ''Can't be done'' while the Yea-sayer will show you how things can be done. They go on and achieve those Goals more and more.
We are entering a year that precedes a year that seemed to have nothing but problems. We had wars, tornadoes in unusual places, climate changes that seemed out of place, Tsunami's that killed thousands of people and we have people who gave up on their dreams. Yes, it's true. The people who dwell on the tragedies that are around them will inevitably give up on their dreams. They will never set a goal because they feel like, ''What's the use.''
I know that we don't live in a Pollyanna world but how you perceive this universe is a matter of attitude. I call it your, ''Ultimate Success Attitude.'' When you have this attitude you see the world differently than most of the people standing around the water cooler. I call these people the, ''what do you mean Crowd.'' They are the ones, when you ask them, ''Do you have a plan for your life? '' They say, ''What do you mean?'' They have no idea where their life is going and worse yet, they believe that they have no control over the circumstances that they are involved in. Yes, that's true, because without a life plan you don't have any control over your life. Life will take you wherever it wants you to go. What kind of life is that? Over 97% of the people who I meet do not have any written goals or any plan of action.
Do you want 2007 to be a spectacular year? Do you want to make 2007, just this side of heaven? Well, you can. Use these steps and your year will be the best one you have ever had. First you must look into your Heart and feel the emotion that is there. The feeling that stirs your soul. Bring that idea up to your mind and contemplate on it. Get a vision of your dream, see it, taste it, smell it, hear it, feel it and know that it is yours for the taking.
Know, that you know, that you know and you will be on your way to your life's plan. Now, you must write it down. Writing is the action part of thinking and by writing down your dream, you bring it into reality. This is where you can make it happen. Take action steps to achieve your dream everyday. Without action steps everyday you will prolong getting your dream and increase your agony. Without a dream, how will you know when your dream comes true?
That is called procrastination. Procrastination kills more dreams than any other cause.
Just do one thing a day that will move you forward and you will see your life change in as little as 90-days. Are setting goals worthless? Only if your want to say, ''Life Goals, what do you mean?''
