It’s a powerful tool.
No one wants to feel helpless. When you see things you want, you would like to feel like you could make decisions and take action that would cause you to actually get them. It’s not rewarding to get the things that you can get without making any real effort.
The excitement and thrill in life comes from doing new things and achieving bigger things than you’ve ever done before. To do this, you must get organized and focused.
You’ve got to set some goals and know how to make them happen. Once you have this skill you can move forward in any area of your life that you choose.
- If you want to improve your finances
- If you want to get in better shape
- If you want a better job
- If you want to fix up your house
- If you want to help your kids get better grades
- If you want to improve your relationship with your spouse
Everyone, in every area that they want to improve, needs goals.
In fact, having goals is much like having a will. You have them whether you know it or not. Everyone has a will. It’s either the one you have through neglect, where you allow the state to decide how to distribute your assets or the one you go and write for yourself with your attorney. It’s not a question of “do you have a will?”You have a will whether you like it or not.
It’s the same with goals. You actually have goals in every area of your life. They are either definite goals you have chosen, that you have game plans in place and are moving toward achieving one step at a time, or they are goals of neglect. These are the areas of your life where you are drifting and usually creating feelings of unhappiness and dissatisfaction.
