Healthy Goal Setting

By December 7, 2012November 15th, 2014All Articles, Motivation, Organization

Often we can become so attached to a goal, that the goal itself immobilizes us.  We are so bonded to the goal that we base our self-worth on our achievements instead of our choices.

I believe something like that can become the death of your business and rip your self-esteem in half. You have no control over your future or your goals. What you do have control of are your choices.

The secret is to learn to make choices that are in your realm of control, and base your competency on your choices and your integrity rather than the outcome.  Let’s say you decide that the most important desire you have professionally over the next 90 days is to recruit three new consultants each month.  First, shift the word ‘goal’ to ‘I desire, I prefer or I want’ instead of my goal is__________, and then make choices that support the fruition of your desires.

Success derives from who you are, not what you do.  The ‘doing’ comes out of who you are and what you believe about yourself.

You should constantly notice your thinking, and choose thoughts that align yourself with what you want to attract.  Healthy thinking is usually a result of an unattached person.  Prepare practices that support healthy thoughts. What might that be?

Example: Read inspiration, listen to music, pick up the phone and make someone’s day, read something uplifting, meditate, or write what describes you at your best.  As the great Tony Robbins says “break your state.”  Thoughts are creative.  What the minds thinks, it creates.  Thoughts held in mind reproduce like their kind.

Love and success!
