Forget About Setting Goals
Many motivational speakers and self-help books will tell you that you must have goals. I’ve even advocated goal setting myself in the past.
You write down your goals and detail them for family life, friends, finances, career, recreation, health, learning, education and your spiritual life.
However, I’ve now come to the conclusion that successful people with strong self-belief don’t do goal setting in this way – why? –
Because their too busy doing what they need to do to get what they want to get.
Successful people don’t spend time writing down what they want out of life they just get on and do it. To be successful at whatever it is we want to do, we need to ask ourselves – what do I really want to achieve? What are my dreams and desires, what do I want to build, to create and what sort of person do I want to be.
You need to clearly identify what it is you want out of life, what do you hunger and thirst for, what do you really want to achieve?
If someone held your head under water you’d quickly realize what you wanted – oxygen! You need to feel like this to be successful. Most of us experience this feeling when we fall in love. We do almost anything to impress and be with the person of our dreams.
This is how people create success, it’s how new countries were discovered, products were invented, Everest was conquered and man walked on the moon.
You may not want to achieve something so dramatic, you may want to have a successful plumbing business, or be an excellent accountant, or even run a marathon.
Whatever it is, once you identify and focus on it you will release the motivation to make it happen.
