Knowing What You Really Want…
“One of the amazing things we have been given as humans is the unquenchable desire to have dreams of a better life, and the ability to establish goals to live out those dreams.” – Jim Rohn
It’s important to know exactly what you want to achieve and the period of time it’ll take to manifest that achievement. With clarity comes concentrated effort and an ability to weed out diverting distractions.
According to Edwin Locke’s famous goal setting theory, the more challenging and specific a goal, the more likely it will be achieved. So think big!
Setting goals will boost your self-confidence and help you discover the meaning and purpose of your life. It’ll propel you into action and seeing your progress will give you great satisfaction.
“Are you bored with life? Then throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find happiness that you had thought could never be yours.” – Dale Carnegie
Knowing What You Really Want… It’s possible to pursue and accomplish a goal, only to find out that the dream in your heart was something entirely different. Sometimes, the journey to the goal is more enjoyable than actually attaining it.
For example, let’s look at the story of Martha (not the real name of my client). Martha was obsessed about buying her new home and spent several months renovating it. But when she actually moved in, she found she’d lost her enthusiasm. She realized that it was the renovation that had been most exciting for her and this realization enticed her to take a different career path.
Today, she is a successful interior decorator. The true desire of Martha’s heart was actually to become an interior decorator. The house was a major component of the realization of her dream, but it wasn’t its ultimate fulfillment. So dig down deep and discover your true goals to enjoy your maximum happiness from them.
“People with goals succeed because they know where they are going. It’s as simple as that.” – Earl Nightingale
Avoid setting vague goals like being a “good” writer. Be specific! Instead, decide that you want to become a best selling science fiction author. Instead of deciding to make “a lot” of money, commit to a specific salary figure as the goal you pursue. Instead of saying that you want to get married, determine the qualities your ideal mate will possess.
“A goal properly set is halfway reached.” – Abraham Lincoln
Set Measurable Goals…
Your goals should be measurable in time (how long they will take to achieve) and in quantity. For example, decide whether you want to quit smoking or cut down on the number of cigarettes. Your brain needs clear instructions to know where to begin. Giving your mind a clear direction keeps you from procrastinating.
“If you try to figure out how you will get what you want, you will limit yourself to what your ego or conditioned mind can do. The key to creating what you want is to turn your desire or your goal over to your subconscious – which is connected to the Universal Mind or Universal Subconscious – and let it bring the goal to you and you to your goal.” – Dr. Robert Anthony
