Labels: goal setting
Why do we need goals? We need them so that we know where we want to go towards, right? Without goals, we are basically wandering around in the darkness hoping that we reach the right place. But, we also use goals as a motivational tool to give us that boost of energy to work towards them.
In this short post I'd like to discuss a certain kind of belief that holds many people - people who are quite capable and talented - back from reaching goals, realizing dreams, and becoming all that they can become. The concept of the "Absolute Presupposition" is central to this discussion. (The term was originally coined by the British philosopher R.G. Collingwood, in a somewhat different context.)
I was talking to a friend of mine this morning about her financial goals for the year. After listening to her for a few minutes, I interrupted to ask how she felt about those goals.
All new ventures of goal-building follow a set pattern in which your initial euphoria is quickly replaced by lonely struggle. Don’t let this phase fool you into giving up as it does for so many. This post will show you how to treat this phase as an essential part of your success.Why is it that 95% of people who set themselves goals fail to reach them? In one word: impatience.
Leaders set goals. But they often set only one type of goal, and in so doing they set themselves up for failure.
Here I have a complete tool kit to help you set your goals more efficiently for success.
1. Stop seeking approval from people.
You don’t need anyone’s permission to fulfill your dream. Trust yourself and give yourself permission to succeed. Having support from people whose opinion you value is a wonderful thing but it should not be the criterion for whether you begin acting on fulfilling your goals or not
