Hello and welcome. Let’s take another step in designing our Legacy. Last week was awesome. Several people made tremendous progress and had VICTORY moments. How did you do on preparing your Dream List of all the things you want to BE, want to DO and want to HAVE? As I said, some people did a fantastic job. Did you find it difficult? Did you only write a few items? Did you make the Choice to NOT prepare a Goal and Dream List? Maybe you are not sold on the benefits of Goal Setting and Dreaming. All High Achievers in life do three major things: 1). Write Goals in full detail. 2). Work on their Goals every day. 3). Work with an accountability partner. How many of these are you willing to do to have your Dream Life?
Success is defined and measured by what you do with the ability and skills given to you by God. There are three turning points in my life. Number one, I discovered I am responsible for my life and for everything that happens to me. Second, I discovered the concept of Goal Setting. Third, I discovered I can learn anything I need to learn to accomplish any Goal I set for me. It has been said, “There is one thing worse than not setting a Goal and that is setting the wrong Goal and achieving it.” Assess your mindset. You can start this week and catch up quickly.
I have five participants doing Step Two. This is where the question of WHY is asked. Some of your Goals might not be your Goal for you. Maybe your grandfather wants you to be an attorney when you want to be an artist or scientist. Now you can get serious about your Goals because you know they are your passion and purpose. You can select the FOUR items to work on in the correct priority. I must tell you of one of my superstars who told me he wants to HAVE peace of mind for his personal life. I list here some of the benefits he would receive from having peace of mind. 1) Being loved by wife and children 2) Financial security with no debt 3) Excellent physical health 4) Significant role in church 5) Success in and enjoyment of vocation.
Is your present reality dull? Are you living in a RUT? Do you get up early, have a quick breakfast, run for the train or bus, arrive at work and never go outside until you leave to go home to eat dinner watch TV, and go to bed, toss and turn and wake up early the next day to do it again. You are in a RUT! Are you depressed and stressed? Dreaming and setting goals points the way to being happy, healthy, prosperous, secure, and to have friends, family, peace of mind, and hope for the future. We need to begin transforming your dreams into specific goals and start you on a journey to total fulfillment and a well-balanced life.
I am here for you. Leave me a comment or send me an email. As my good friend, Tom Ziglar says, “the fastest way to success is to replace bad habits with good habits”.
