Meaningful goals lead to clear plans. Clear plans lead to massive action. Massive action leads to greater results. That is why you must START with CLEAR, meaningful goals.
The first step in getting anywhere you want to go is to KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING. If you don’t know where you are going, the chances of getting where you WANT are not very good.
So first ask yourself what you really want from your life. What do you want within the next 5-10 years? Write down a clear description of the person you would be, the people who would be in your life, the health and fitness you would have, the wealth and abundance – everything you want in great detail.
Once you have that you might want to ask yourself WHY. WHY do you want this life? WHY MUST YOU HAVE IT?
There’s a famous quote by Nietzsche that says “He who has a WHY to live for can bear almost any HOW.” This means that with a “WHY”… with a deep and meaningful purpose, ANYONE can overcome almost any “HOW”… almost anything life throws in our path.
This is important, because simply being human we KNOW that life will throw many obstacles in our path. LIFE IS HARD.
Without a strong REASON WHY most people will turn around, give up… most people will quit. But with a strong meaning, a purpose GREATER than ourselves and our own benefit… we will fight for longer, work harder and endure just about anything.
Think of the mother who finds the strength to lift a car when her child is trapped under. Without the reason WHY she would never be capable of such an unbelievable feat.
Think of the million stories of people who refused to give up and WON against all odds – it is because their WHY was greater than the demon in front of them.
WHY MUST you change? WHY MUST YOU improve? WHO BENEFITS from the new you? HOW does that make you feel?
So we start with MEANING. Meaningful goals. Then come clear PLANS… because without a plan of action, there is no action.
How do you get from where you are NOW to where you want to be? Has anyone done something similar before? How did they do it ? How can you do it BETTER? How can you do it YOUR WAY? Where did others fail, and what can you learn from that?
After the plan comes ACTION. This part is up to you and never anyone but you. It’s not just showing up every day, it’s showing up with INTENTION and purpose.
Setbacks will come. Challenges will arrive out of the blue.
Setbacks are inevitable… but they’re also only temporary. Keep going.
You can never fail, unless you quit – so you NEVER QUIT.
You become relentless. You find a way, find a solution, work harder, work longer, change direction – whatever needs to be done, that is what you commit to do.
Let it go. All the bulls**t reasons why you can’t have the life you want. Make a plan. Dedicate yourself to the plan. Earn the life you want.
If your goals are easy to achieve they are NOT BIG ENOUGH. Set bigger goals! Goals that EXCITE you and scare you at the same time!
If it is important to you, you will make it happen! If it’s not, you will find an excuse! HOW BAD DO YOU WANT IT?
Step one: You figure out your WHY. The reason you MUST!
Step 2: You create a TARGET. A meaningful GOAL to work towards. Something that will challenge you. Something that will force you to GROW. Something you LOVE DOING.
Step 3: You work, and work some more. You never stop working, on your mission, and more importantly on your own SELF-GROWTH.
And then, eventually, one day you look back and realize that you have achieved MORE than you ever hoped for yourself. You realize that you have grown into a different person, someone with higher standards and greater goals… and it never ends. It never ends in a good way, because you are always chasing your potential, and because you are always improving – your potential is always that little bit ahead of you. You are always one mountain away, and you are always WILLING and able to climb one more mountain.
Most people won’t ever end up where they want to be, because they never define where that place is. They drift through life with no direction, then wonder why they are in the middle of nowhere. Don’t be like that. You know better than that.
Be like the very few who know where they are going in life. The very few who have a DESIRE to improve every area. Willing to WORK on every area. EXCITED at the possibilities. LOOKING FORWARD to each next level in your life!
