|Goal Setting Information|
The Illusion of a Final Goal
"..... there is no final goal. There is always further to go. It is a voyage of unending discovery, and as in all such voyages, what is gathered by the wayside is often as valuable as what is found at the destination."
The game of life and success is the game of illusions! Why do I make such a comment after explaining about how to achieve your goals? It's an illusion because once you reach the goal you don't stop taking the action. A lot of people, when they are setting their goals to reach somewhere, they think that reaching it is the end. This, as I stated is an illusion.
When the person goes to the gym with the goal of a beautiful physique, it is a noble goal to strive for. However, it doesn't end there. What happens when the person reaches it? Does that mean the end of the action? No! The person now has to maintain that body that they have taken so long to reach. Due to the disciplines and practices that they have undertaken in order to reach this point, it is now ingrained in them to take the action. The person cannot envision a day when they stop taking this action entirely. This habit was formed by consistency.
In the same way, a person who wants to be successful does not end the quest once he/she reaches that level of success. It's now time to maintain that success by continuing to take action as well as to make more of their potential. A person who has reached the initial level of success that they have strived for has also developed so many disciplines that have become habits that it's now easier for them to reach higher goals. If you have learned how to develop new habits at one time, it becomes a lot easier to develop another one.
In this aspect, the gym teaches you that reaching your goal is not the end, rather it's the beginning. You never knew you could reach this goal, and now you are here! Imagine how much more you can do that you never thought possible. I don't think anyone has ever seen this truth! Reaching your goal is not the end. It is only the beginning. The beginning of exploring your full potential is realized when you achieve what you once thought to be impossible! Now you can realize more and more of your potential.
Realizing your goals is the beginning step of setting even higher goals for yourself! The journey never ends! It goes on until you realize that your potential is so great that even if you live to be a million years you can never exhaust it! In the amount of time that you now have, see how much of that you can tap! Don't end with the achievement of your initial goals! Strive for more, do more, and live a complete life! Challenge yourself! I dare you!
