Step 1 was easy wasn’t it? You’ve got your goal, the thing you want really really bad in the very front of your mind. Now on to step 2.
2. A GOAL CANNOT VOID, NEGATE, CANCEL OUT, OR STONEWALL ANY OTHER GOAL
You can’t create a goal that negates or cancels out another goal. That’s why it’s very important to determine 1st what you really really want. Other things might have to move down the priority list.
To reach a goal successfully, it needs your full attention. It cannot share priority spots with other things.
An example of what we’re talking about here is this:
You can’t decide and set a goal to exercise every day in order to lose weight, but continue to eat large, unhealthy meals. This is a typical way of sabotaging yourself right from the start. If losing weight is the goal, then your actions have to line up with and contribute towards the goal’s success.
Another example is that if losing weight is your priority, then having convenience food cannot also be a priority. You’ll have to sacrifice convenience for your goal.
The actions and choices we are talking about above are all a part of a the “plan”. The plan is what turns your goal into reality instead of keeping it a wish. We’ll get to that later. For now, we just have to make sure we are clear about what we want and what things have to change in order to get what we want. We are becoming determined to be persistent. 2013 is your year!
We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.
All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.
