At the first day of the Conference Lee Brower spoke upon Goals. Are we setting ourselves up for failure ? Do we set our goals to high ? What does a goal mean anyway ?
How often do we misuse our goals ? Do you realize that goals that are set up with the pure use of will power will fail . Those goals are usually set to high and to hard. We need to learn to set the goals much smaller. That doesn’t mean that you won’t accomplish the big goal in the end. It just means you leave your self less opportunity to fail. It is hard to fail a small goal. An example he gave was reading a book. You would ideally like to read a chapter every night . Maybe the first week you succeed . Then week 2 comes around and you have other things that might come up that doesn’t leave you the time. If you had set your goal to one word a day , I am sure you’d find the time for that. By week 2 you can still handle that one word a day concept. But really are you going to read just one word. No! But you didn’t set yourself up for more than you can actually handle . So if you read more it is a great feeling of accomplishment.
Another way to follow through with a goal you set is to use Vision. Vision yourself completing these goals. The whole idea is to get in motion. By seeing yourself doing these things motivates you to take action. Action is the most important part. With out action there is no success. How many people do you know that complain a lot about life but never take action in their own lives. They fail themselves every time . They don’t see the vision . They don’t use the motion. Are you one of those people?
