wondering does it really work. In my observation, most people are intimidated to
set goals because they cannot "See How" they will accomplish them. For example,
wanting to pursue a degree, but don’t know how they will pay for it. Another
common goal people share with me is their desire to start a business, but fear they lack
the capital to start a business. I always tell them you do not lack the time or opportunity to
start researching about the business.
Once you understand how goal setting works, you will not be able
to live without it. I have been setting goals since high school, and they
When you set goals, you are giving your energy, mind, time and
resources something to act toward. Goals can be big, small, personal, family
oriented or whatever. You just need to have some goals, write them down and ACT on
When I tell my clients to ACT on their goals, they tend to focus
on what they can’t do, rather then what they can do. The real key to achieving
goals is doing what you can. Let me repeat that, the real key to achieving goals
is doing what you can. If you want to return to school, ask yourself what can I
do, you can research the school; you can ask questions about programs for
returning adults to school. Ask friends, see if your current job will pay your
tuition, DO WHAT YOU CAN.
Once you start to do what you can, you will be amazed at how the
universe and people respond to your actions.
Here’s a personal example, several years ago I set a goal to be
on a cover of a magazine that featured my passion of helping others succeed.
Each of us has personal goals and this was one of mine. I wrote it down
and I created a mock magazine cover for me to see. Visuals for me are very
important, I need to see it.
The next step was to “Do what I could.” And that was to keep
adding value to people’s lives. Fast forward to February 2012 and I receive an
email from Career Magazine stating that they wanted to feature me on the cover and
interview me about my passion.
Does goal setting really work? You better believe it!
Here are the key steps:
1. Set some goals
2. Write them down
3. Get an image of what you want
4. Act on those goals, DO WHAT YOU CAN
5. Never stop believing
So get to goal setting TODAY and watch your goals come to reality, one goal at a time.
