How to Turn a Goal Into a Reality....It's Simple.
“Clarify your vision. Zero in on a goal that has a depth of meaning. The journey has to be worth taking.” – Vince Poscente
We struggle, we grind our gears, we fall down, we get kicked in the side, stomped on, drilled into the ground……and what? We have two choices. We all have only 2 choices. Lay there or GET BACK UP!
Many of us have goals for 2019, and that’s all great and everything, but are they written down? Are your goals staring at you every day? Or do you forget about them? Are they on the back burner? Do you even think it is possible to obtain those goals? Do you even believe in yourself? Or do you hope that your goals will just come to fruition just by chance and because you “deserve” it?
Here’s the thing…you don’t deserve anything. You aren’t owed anything…until you take action, strategic action (not blind busy work) to reach your goals. Goals that have a dead line, that apply pressure to you, and that hold you accountable to your actions every day. When you wake up in the morning, what’s the first thing you think about? It needs to be your goals. At night, what’s the last thing you think about? It needs to be your goals. During the Day? It needs to be your goals.
Breathe your goals, eat your goals, drink goals, drive your goals, speak your goals, sleep your goals, love your goals, do your goals…it’s that simple. Live a life with a clearly defined purpose. Live with INTENTION. Focus and perseverance are the only things necessary for success to be obtained. Immersion in a goal brings your life purpose, it gives you the energy to GET BACK UP and keep moving FORWARD. Your goals must be big enough to consume you because if you lose sight of your goals you will no longer have the energy to apply focus and persevere.
With that said…Keep GRINDING, Keep GROWING….with INTENTION. Let us THRIVE in 2019!
