To achieve your purposes in life, you must have the power, ability, capacity of setting clearly defined, purposeful goals and, most importantly, of having the character, discipline to act on them.
I have observed -over the course of the year- that highly developed, fully actualized people understand the importance of exploring their talents, uncovering their personal purposes and then applying their human gifts in the direction of their calling.
Some people exercise their talents in various fields as Physicians, Scientists, Writer, Teacher and so on. They have disciplined themselves to see their heroic mission and they ensured it serves people while they realize it.
What are you waiting for?
If you want to be anything, do anything, achieve anything, contribute immensely to your generation, GOAL-SETTING is the starting point. Mapping out your objectives and your goals releases the creative juices which get you on to the path of your purpose. Believe it or not.
How will you achieve your purposes without goal-setting?
Take a look at this story.
There lived a Wiseman in the ages past. He was very good at the art of archery. Countless of times, had he killed bear, strucking its eye, over a long distance, as far as 300feets. One day he took his student to a leveled ground in the forest with his precious bow, an arrow, a rose flower, and a white ankerchief. He attached the rose on the trunk of an Oak tree. He then told his student to blindfold him with the handkerchief and took him as far as 100 feets away from the oak tree. The student, having seen him struck a bull’s eye 300 feets away could surely do this miracle and hit the rose.
He drew the arrow with all his energy and release aiming at the rose on the tree. The arrow struck the large oak tree with a thud, missing it’s mark by a large distance.
‘What happened?’ The student asked.
That Story emphasizes the importance of setting goals. For you to fulfill your life’s purpose, know how to set goals. You’ll never hit a target that you cannot see.
Some people spend their whole lives dreaming of being happier, living with more vitality, wishin and having an abundance of passions. Yet they do not know the importance of even ten minutes a month to write down their goals and to think deeply about their lives.
As Robin Sharma put it, “goal-setting makes life magnificent. Your world will become richer, more delightful and more magical.”
Setting clearly objectives for whatever you desire, be it emotional, mental, physical or spiritual is critical to realization . Anyone who wishes improve the quality of his life, would do well to take out a piece of paper and start out their life aims.
Zig Ziglar said, “If you wanted any change, you would be in the process of changing right now.”
Wondering why writing out goals is so special?
Such a simple act could make a huge difference!
When you pen down your goals and desires on a piece of paper, you send a command, instructions to your subconscious mind that these goals are more important than those living only in your head. You subconscious mind will try every possible means of realizing your goals. Just like a guided missile. Whatever you give your Super-self, is what it will act upon.
You change your life the moment you start writing down your goals.
