Quick Blog Notes
"The key to realizing a dream is to focus not on success but significance, and then even the small steps and little victories along your path will take on greater meaning." - Oprah Winfrey
The year is halfway already. Just the other day we were making resolutions talking about "New Year, New Me." How's that working out for you?
OK, I confess I am stepping on your toes a bit on purpose, but with good intentions. First of all most resolutions simply do not work. I know because for years I was frustrated about why despite good intentions, mine never made it beyond Febrauary. But then I discovered a better way to get things done was by setting goals. See, much as we say we want to change and grow, it's no secret that getting out of the comfort zone is not a walk in the park. We are creatures of habit, and new horizons scare us. But we can make moves despite the fear. Change that is fueled by a bigger picture and purpose and is better than vanity-driven dreams that turn into nightmares of unfulfilled desire.
One way to jumpstart your goals is by having a strong WHY behind what you want to achieve. Your WHY is your purpose or motive and it will get you through some setbacks and help overcome the inner resistance that comes from fear of the unknown. If you have some things you want to have, be or do, and you are not where you'd like to be, here's a tip that may help: for a moment detach yourself from the outcome and any guilt emotions that I may have triggered by mentioning resolutions.
Look at that thing you desire from a MACRO perspective. Why do you want it? How will your life change and who will benefit if you achieve your vision or goals? Reminding ourselves why we want to achieve anything can inspire us to take action. Let your purpose and passion energize you to get back on track and do the MICRO action steps. This includes having a plan, working and tracking your intentions so the 2nd part of your 2018 goes as you would like it to.
