invisible into the visible."
- Tony Robbins
Last Wednesday morning I had the privilege to be the featured speaker at the Houston CrossRoads Business Building Breakfast.
The subject was..... Never give up, set a goal and then go for it.
I love to talk about goalsetting because it is so important to have goal(s) and sadly very few people actually take the time to set a vison for their life. Instead they wander around with no particular destination in mind, and in the end any road will take them there. It's called the road to nowhere in life.
Make sure that you don't end up on that road.
Why do we have to have goals?
Here is a powerful quote by Jim Rohn that will answer that question.
"If you don't design your own life plan,
chances are that you'll fall into someone else's plan.
And guess what they have planned for you?
Dreams and goals can become like a magnet. The stronger the goal and the higher the purpose, the stronger this magnet will be that will pull you forward towards your dream.
Goals can pull you through all kinds of down days. They pull you through difficult times and they will pull you through crisis and setbacks in your life.
Goals will pull you in the right direction, which is forward instead of down into the past, or sideways into the busyness of every day drama and confusion, and other people's demands and the craziness of our society.
Just remember.....never let other people plan or design your future. You must plan it yourself. You decide what you want and what is best for you. You are the one that has to live with the results of your decisions and your goals.
Never take advice from people that you wouldn't want to trade place with.
What do you want your future to look like?
Goal setting is quite a task and it might take some time to figure out what you want and then getting your goals written down on a piece of paper or in a notebook.
Invest the time that it will take in figuring out what you want. It is your future that we are talking about.
Do not go another day without goals and a plan of action.
Some people will give up on their goals because......
The goal wasn't a good or great goal. Maybe it wasn't their own goal?
They give up too soon before they reap the rewards of their efforts.
And here is the number one reason people give up so fast...…
They have a tendency to look at how far they still have to go, instead of how far they have come.
Only 5% of people have specific, written down goals.
Are you part of this group?
What big dream would you go after if you knew you couldn't fail?
