Who has seen Soccer Games?
What does the scoring player do after he kicks a goal?
He runs around the field yelling GOAL! GOOOOOOOOOal!
That’s not right. That’s wrong! He should be running around yelling DONE….I DID IT!!!!
He was into the goal the whole time. He knew where he was going, right? That was his goal.
The Goal is where you want to go, not where you are now.
So, where do you want to go? (so you can yell that way when you get there).
Denis Waitley says “Goals provide the energy source that powers our lives. One of the best ways we can get the most from the energy we have is to focus it. That is what goals can do for us; concentrate our energy.”
“Goals give you a compass in order to direct your path through life. Goals focus your thoughts and actions on areas that have precise purpose and meaning.” Says Catherine Pulsifer, inWings for Goals
Paul Meyer says, “Crystallize your goals. Make a plan for achieving them and set yourself a deadline. Then, with supreme confidence, determination and disregard for obstacles and other people’s criticisms, carry out your plan.”
Yes, give yourself a deadline because, as Diana Scharf Hunt points out “Goals are dreams with deadlines.”
Jim Rohn says, “If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you.
If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you.
Whatever good things we build end up building us.”
So set your intentions, set your dreams and the plans to get there and enjoy the path………..it is the journey that is the destination.
And, as Grace Spear says “Think and feel yourself there! To achieve any aim in life, you need to project the end-results. Think of the elation, the satisfaction, the joy! Carrying the ecstatic feeling will bring the desired goal into view.”
