A New Way to Look at Goals

Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

    Good morning, all. Today is a wonderful day. I had a very productive day yesterday as I had an opportunity to learn a new way to write goals. Yes, most folks write goals and like the most of you, I learned to write that I . . . However, what is the why behind your goal? I learned that your “Big Why” is the driving force, the energy that brings it to fruition.
    Goals should be more like affirmations. An example of one of my goals is: “I am so happy and grateful that by May 1, 2017, I will be driving my fully loaded, white Tesla P90d.” I then write a paragraph as the all the emotions involved in owning this vehicle. One of the BOLD LAWS that encompasses this is “Logic makes you think, Emotions make you ACT!” From now on, I will be writing all my goals in this fashion as I fully believe, we are and become what we think. 

And that my friends, is my 2¢’s worth for this morning.

Hi Michael.  I hope you come and visit me in your fully loaded white Tesla P90D.  It won't cost you a cent in gas!

The difference between logicand emotion is a very effective idea to come to grips with.

Hi TeamCHI - Complete Home Inspections, Inc. - I agree with what you have stated in your post. My coach also added this to our personal goal statement...I realize I cannot get without giving, so to achieve my goal I am willing to give_______________in return for achieving my goal. 

I keep my Personal Goal Statement on my desk and refer to it. I also review and re-access where I am in the process every week or two.

Hi Michael - you said two important things here.  Your WHY is most important but that self talk of affirmations means that we become what we think about.

I'm so glad this works for you. Some like to use a vision board and others put sticky notes around their house with motivations and affirmations. The important thing is that you set the goals no matter how you need to. You can't run a race if you don't know where the finish line is.
