Following on from last week’s article on self-imposed glass ceilings, I believe the major driver behind all achievement needs to be the establishment of a clearly defined set of goals to focus and re-focus on.
Our goals are our destination. They are our end point.
Our goals are our DESIRED end point.
In the same way that people regularly plan their holidays and vacations in detail, we need to plan our life destinations with exactly the same clarity.
When we plan our vacations, we know exactly when our vacation begins.
We know where we are going. We know our hotel. We know all of the necessary means of transport that is already booked to take us from our home to our destination hotel. And we know where we need to be and at what time we need to be at certain points throughout that journey.
Once we arrive at our destination hotel we know what we will be doing with our time during our stay there.
In life, we can compare our journey through life to the booking of a vacation.
Our vacation hotel, and the time spent there, is like our retirement. We can look at what things we will be doing in our retirement, in the same way that we can consider our daily events while on vacation.
Our travel to our hotel will be comparable to our journey through life.
If we know our time frames and our methods of transport, we can plan exactly where we should be financially along the timeline in our life, in the same way we that we plan our taxi rides, our plane travel, and our valet pickups along our trip to our holiday hotel destination.
The trouble is, that most people spend a lot of time planning out the details of their vacation, yet spend very little time planning out the details of their life journey.
The reason for this is simple:
Most people do not prioritise the day to day things that are needed to successfully create a comfortable retirement.
Only three percent of the population have clear and written down goals that they read and review on a daily basis.
And statistics will show you that only five percent of the population are able to retire comfortably at age sixty-five.
There’s probably a SIGNIFICANT connection between these two statistics.
Knowing clearly what you want from life will go a long way towards you successfully achieving your life goals.
Napoleon Hill said:
“The starting point of all achievement is desire. Keep this constantly in mind. Weak desires bring weak results, just as a small amount of fire makes a small amount of heat.”
Nurture your desire.
Guard against those thoughts and those people who will try to distract you from achieving your goals.
There is no reason why you cannot achieve your desired goals.
You will only fail to achieve those goals when you give up on the necessary actions required to achieve them.
Don’t ever give up.
And don’t ever allow others to talk you into giving up on your lofty goals.
