|Goal Setting Information|
One Focus To Success
Too many times we are distracted from our main goal and purpose by all of the different things out there that we want, or think we want. Instead of making choices, we seem to want it all, everything we come across. Too many conflicting desires is a recipe for disaster.
With every goal which does not align with our main definite goal or purpose, our percentage chance to achieve it goes down. With dilution, our focus and concentration lose strength, and we lose momentum with each direction change.
Another potential downside to having too many goals and not attaining them, is the potential negative hit to our self image. This could be disempowering in the long term if not put into it's proper perspective.
So what do we do? Hold our desires in check? Forget about all those other things we want?
No way! Never isolate yourself from your desires. Bond with them, make them important, and "do or die" - "what ever it takes". You can happily move towards their achievement. Timing and Strategy may change but the goal is in the bank.
First thing to do right now is DECIDE that wanting more is OK. This is a very human thing and it drives progress.
Napoleon Hill stated that 'The Master Key To Riches' was the development of a burning desire for the achievement of a major definite purpose. (loosely quoted, but this is true)'
Riches' do not just include money or things, but everything that enriches our lives, and this is different for everyone.
Now to take 'Nappy' literally, one would have to have a single focus that they would develop into a Magnificent Obsession, again nothing negative about this.
If you want several different things all at once, and if you do not have a plan for their attainment, then, it is likely that it will split your focus in too many directions, and you will achieve none of them.
However . . . if you connect them up by going after a single massive undertaking which when achieved gets you all of the above, then your focus would be laser sharp and your concentration would be unbroken. And you would have all of the objects of your desire!
Now, if you do not have a Single Massive All Encompassing Focus, then, a substitute plan would be to list all that you want on paper. Then, start arranging them in order of importance to you. Most important on top, least important on bottom.
Decide what is most important to you. If that is difficult, then start eliminating those goals you can do without. (eliminate them just like those reality shows do) You will be left by default with the most important goal to go after. As for the others, Go after them one at a time.
Either way you will come out with a single focus so that you can plan a strategy to attain it. And your power will be centered and your momentum will build towards achieving what you want.
Take it for what it's worth . . .
