|Keep your targets
Keep your targets constant until you reach them.
One thing that is really worth sharing with you readers, is a lesson learned over the past
years, about goals. This particular lesson has made it clear to as to why, so often, we
set goals, and then they do not work out. It is so simple and obvious, maybe there is
no-one else out there who has had this problem.
Anyway, the main thing with
goals is that once you have set the target, KEEP THE TARGET STILL.
What is meant by this? Well, for a number of
years, you keep doing goal setting exercises, and find it easy to create these dreams. To
come up with a picture of what they would look like, how you would feel about them,
reasons for wanting them, etc. YET, you kept on finding that they did not work out. You
got frustrated, and had all sorts of problems because of this. So why did they not work
We set big goals (all the good advice on goal
setting is to go for really big, motivating dreams). Well that part is fine. The problem
comes when a little voice inside you would say, 'But you don't deserve this success.
You can't possibly make such a huge dream come true.' So then you would modify things and
reset the target. And you would not just reset it once, but lots and lots of times. Of
course, this means that it becomes impossible to hit the target, as it is always moving.
It is advisable then to set a goal and keep that
target firmly in mind. Seek the steps to achieve it, and if it is the right thing for you,
you will find the way to achieve it. We ALL deserve success (whatever that means to each
of us). Well, the bottom line is to keep faith in your own dreams and they will happen.
You could enjoy more success in your business now than you did before. You could have set
targets last year and see yourself achieving them now - provided you keep them still long
enough to let it all work.
