Create Goal Power

Create Goal Power

Achieving a goal is the best feeling you can have, all that hard work, blood and sweat was worth it – you have finally achieved your desired outcome.


The procrastinators of the world will never feel this overwhelming feeling of satisfaction as their journey towards their goal was stumped.


Why don’t you fulfil your goals? What stops you achieving your desired outcome? How does your motivation drop when working to a positive objective?


“What the mind can conceive and believe, and the heart desire, you can achieve.” Norman Vincent Peale

The Goal Trap


People often set the wrong goal.


This misleading goal becomes the focus of your world, once achieved a feeling of being unfulfilled overwhelms you, devastating your motivation.


A common misleading goal is “to be a millionaire”


Many millionaires with their fast cars, big houses and successful businesses still aren’t fulfilled because the goal of being a millionaire didn’t give them the outcome they desired.


The wannabe millionaire may have wrongly believed that having money would equal finding love. When they were poor their experience taught them that rich people found love; they would see millionaires step out of cars with a beautiful partner, rich people on TV were always happily married and autobiographies of famous billionaire’s were always dedicated to their love one.


A focus on making money detracts from the desired outcome, in this example falling in love.


ALWAYS – Create a clear goal that gets the desired outcome. Beware of generalizations and limiting beliefs as this may stray you of the right path.


Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude – Thomas Jefferson

The Worst Possible Outcome


Daily activities are not goals, because these easily achieved routine objectives are accomplished without us having to focus on them.


A set goal is harder to achieve. When working towards a difficult purpose you will come across barriers, difficulties and hard choices.


It is this negative experience that stops the individual trying, creating procrastination before they give up on their goal. If you knew the barrier in advance, if you predicted the worst possible outcome to your actions, you can prepare adequate resources to help you overcome the difficulty


With resources, a plan of action and a positive attitude the barrier to your goal feels less intimidating, easier to overcome.


You also need to understand the meaning of your goal. Why is this particular goal meaningful to you? How does achieving this goal fit in with your life’s mission, your values and beliefs?


Will this goal empower you, develop you? When there is a positive meaning to the outcome of your goal you will feel a strong motivational pull to break through your obstacle and achieve your goal.


ALWAYS – Predict potential problems and know the reason why this goal is important to you


“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.” Ernest Hemingway

The Changing Tides


Your goal, like the ocean tides, are always changing.


Once immersed in your goal your whole focus becomes about this particular task. When out with friends, reading books and completing various activities, your mind, absorbed in your objective, makes everything relevant to your goal.


This is where the light bulb moment comes from; a random comment from a friend can create the right connection in your brain for you to have a breakthrough.


As you progress through your goal journey you will develop, learn new skills, adapt, evolve, all this new learning, new experiences can change the parameters of your goal. New technology, new ideas, new team members and new systems and strategies can all change your established goal.


ALWAYS – Before making any changes, reflect on the change and how this alternation will affect budgets, time, moral and the desired outcome
