Do we set goals in our lives, most of us don't WHY ? The following is only my opinion, I have studied self improvement on and off for the last 30 years lately I have come back to these studies and wild horses would not stop me now, I will study until I no longer have a physical form.
Most of us do not set goals as we fear failure. We follow a pattern in life, our paradigm begins to form when we are babies, we then move onto school and we learn how to read and write, our minds are deeply impregnated that we have to work hard to get a job etc etc.
In my last business I worked 50-60 hours a week because I had this belief that was instilled in my mind, by thought that if we don't work hard we will not succeed. I now know this is not the case.
I started to engage with self development books back in 1981 when I got involved in MLM, I read lots of books such as "the magic of thinking big", "see you at the top", "the power of the subconscious mind", "think and grow rich". I read each day and set goals.
We have to take a leap of faith to set goals, something will change our circumstances, it may be an emotional trauma or lose our job, something shifts. I firmly believe the seeds of this shift were impregnated in our thoughts before we took action. Therefore we have set a goal without knowing it.
My own experience was I was ambitious ,I wanted more out of life, compared to most, at that time in 1981 I had more than most, I was above average if you like, I owned my own home had a good job and was building a business in my spare time. However, lets just look at the following: what was happening in my daily thoughts and then look at the results.
- I was married and not happy
- I wanted a bigger house
- I wanted to own more property
- I wanted a better job ( or a traditional business )
These thoughts were in my focus daily, now lets see what happens with in two years :
- I divorced and lived with someone else
- I bought another house
- I bought a shop with a house attached and rented it.
- I moved jobs and doubled my income.
I hadn't realised at the time, I used the energy of attraction, I achieved what I wanted. You can believe this or not but its true this was my turn of events from 1981 to 1983/84 when I look back now it was amazing.
If you follow me daily I will give you the next turn of events that were even more amazing.
The link below is fot the book "think and grow rich".
I am now happy and fulfilled achieving my purpose, I have a property business and an online business. I have learnt to serve others ( as I hope I am doing now ) respect others for what they are trying to achieve no matter how big or small their ambition. I work on my attitude each day and look to help anyone I can on a daily basis.
