Got Goals?

How often do people complicate their lives? A recent study showed that only 3% of the entire population set goals! Seems so easy, yet, if something is simple, we just put it off to another time saying that it will not take any time and therefore it is not worth planning for.  We can do it anytime and it will only take a minute. Sound familiar???

We are winding down 2011 and I sometimes wonder how many of you that read my blog have set goals for 2012?  Are your goals in the present tense, "I am, I have, I enjoy", or are they stated like "I will?"  I will means you don't have it now, and while the goal may not have a physical presence at this moment, affirming in the present tense will certainly bring them closer!

One of the fundamental facts of life is; if you don't start, you don’t stand a chance of getting there.  Sounds simple.  Seems obvious, however, it's a major factor that not writing your goals, and then reading your goals every day, is why we don't do what we know we should do or accomplish what we feel we can accomplish.

Some people call this, "the paralysis of analysis."  It's easy to sit in the comfort of our status quo and rationalize about what we could or should do if we had more information or if circumstances were just different.  Successful people write goals, take action, and focus on the end result!

If you don't take the first step, you'll never take the second!

Write your goals for the seven areas of your life! Physical, Mental, Spiritual, Emotional, Professional, Financial and Social! Ask yourself the following four questions:
 1. Why do I want this goal?
 2. How will others benefit besides me?
 3. What happens when I get it?
 4. What happens if I don't?!

It sounds so simple, yet simple is not always easy...true?  There are many times that simple is not easy...don't let this stop you!
Set your goals, read them daily, take action and know that by disciplining yourself and this practice, your goals are on their way!

Future Diary
In 1983, Mark Victor Hansen came to a Markson Management Services seminar and handed everyone a book with nothing in it. He called it Future Diary.

He then proceeded to tell us to write down everything we wanted as if it were already true...hence future diary.

I remember writing 5 things down that I really wanted, never thinking or believing that any of them would come true. All five did!
