Goals are Dreams with Deadlines
The truly terrible thing about this life, was not knowing what you want, but only able to recognize what you do not want. You have to spend so much time and energy trying to find it out, time that other people spent in pursuing of their desires.
The problem for a lot of people is that they don't really know what they want. They have vague desire: to 'do something creative' or to earn more money or 'to be free', but they can't really pin down what it is precisely that they want. So they drift from one thing to another, enjoying some moments and hating others, but never really finding fulfillment or success . This is why it's hard to lead a successful life (whatever that means to you) when you don't know what you want.
The great majority of people are “wandering generalities” rather than “meaningful specifics”. The fact is that you can't bit a target that you can't see. If you don't know where you are going, you will probably end up somewhere else . You have to have goals. Don't be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can't cross a chasm in two small jumps.
How would your life be different if…You stopped focusing on what you didn’t want and started focusing on what you do want Let today be the day…You establish a clear intent, make a plan, and take actions towards your intent.
The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it . You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.
I’m not out to compete with any one, I’m here to complete, by encouraging and inspiring souls through a text at a time . You have to let go of who you were to allow yourself to become who you are.
