Dreams! No Goals! No Life!
Let’s talk about goals and growth. Do you have a quality world picture of your ideal life for 2016? What about 2020? You see, I believe we all have pictures in our heads of desires to move ourselves forward. We have aspirations to be more, to have more, to feel more fulfilled. We dream about those things.
This is what is speaking to you at your core. Are you listening? I have learned that if you do not take time out and listen to yourself and focus on what your dreams and aspirations are, no one else will do it for you. Are you going to be intentional from this day forward?
Do you allow yourself to be still and focus on what your best life would be? You see I believe we are all born with talents and values and that it is our job to use our talents to help others move forward and value ourselves enough to do what we love using our inborn strengths and talents.
I can hear some of you saying, yes I have my dreams but ..and here come the excuses! We can create as many roadblocks to our dreams as we want or we can assess our dreams, and actually start to work towards them. We do this by setting some goals and actions that will move us in that direction.
Sadly, some people will sell themselves a bill of goods that goes something like this: “ Sure I have my dreams, but they will never happen!” You have already set yourself up for failure.
Other will say, “yes I have dreams and I know someday they will work out.” It is called going with the flow.
Others will say, “yes I have my dreams and I am going to do everything I can to have them come to fruition starting today! It may take some time but I know I will work with intention and they will come true!”
Which one are you? Do you have a growth plan to get yourself to where you want to be? We cannot get to our destination without a map. You would not drive to a holiday destination without learning what you need to know to get there and without a GPS or a map.
What are you going to do in this new year ahead?
