I know — you really get tired of someone saying — set goals or make New Years Resolutions for the New Year — Howerver, it is those who set meaningful goals who will be very successful in 2013 — Will that be YOU!
“The purpose of goals is to focus our attention. The mind will not reach toward achievement until it has clear objectives. The magic begins when we set goals. It is then that the switch is turned on, the current begins to flow, and the power to accomplish becomes a reality.” — From The Best of Success, compiled by Wynn Davis
Set Meaningful Goals
What do you want for your life? What do you feel passionate about? You will be most successful in life if you look to your heart for direction. Our heads usually tell us to do what we’ve always done, what we think we should do or what other people want and expect us to do. Instead, open to pursue what YOU really want. If there’s no excitement for you around a goal, it’s not coming from the heart.
Dream a little here. Don’t hesitate to ask for the very best. Believe in miracles!
Ask yourself these Smart Questions:
- What do you want to accomplish this year?
- What do you want to achieve in this lifetime?
- What’s your greatest desire for your personal or work life?
- What opportunity beckons right now?
- Where do you need to take action? What needs to be done?
- How are you truly seizing the day?
- What will you choose to do today for your own fulfillment?
Write down your goals and continually review them! Writing them down anchors them more deeply. Reviewing your goals anchors them even more deeply. Get your subconscious mind working for you. Have your most important goal on the tip of your tongue. Always know your next step.
If we set our direction clearly, we have the foundation for effective decision-making. It will be clear to us what actions will move us towards our goals. This helps us develop intention and attention to what we want to achieve in life.
“There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.” — Napoleon Hill
