We see things not as they are, but as we are. 

The Talmud

Maybe there’s no such thing as enemy. Maybe no one’s vying for your demise so much as their own ascension. Maybe the idea of having opposition is your desperate explanation for why you face conflict you don’t understand. Maybe your self-consciousness is behind why you feel judged by others.

Maybe becoming your biggest fan will destroy whatever you perceived was against you.

Maybe becoming your biggest fan is the answer. If not, it’s still a good practice. Why? Because being your biggest fan comes with built-in benefits. First, you get to sound off praise and applause on cue! And you never have to worry about fair-weather fans. Second, you are more inclined to live life to the fullest and seek your constant development and improvement. Making life more rewarding. Third, once you’re a bona fide fan, you’ll start experiencing life swinging in your favor. How you see yourself is how others will see you. Exude confidence and conviction, and you’ll attract a support system you never knew you had. Be present and sincere in your interactions, and others will flock to your attention. Hone a disposition of kindness and gratitude, and you’ll hear others include those very same qualities when they speak of your character. Project peace and love onto others, and you’ll get the same treatment in return.

It starts with you.

And the Lord said, write the vision, and make it plain…because it will surely come. 

Habakkuk 2:2-3 KJV

Your goals are pipe dreams, huh? Farfetched visions of grandeur? Why do we set resolutions only to days later give up? I’ve been there. You get all geared up to accomplish the goal, but never quite get around to doing it. So frustrating. Well, this doesn’t have to be the case. Our success in accomplishing the goal or it eluding us has to do with the stories we tell ourselves. Our story is either defeatist or optimistic in nature. Did you feel convinced of its worth when set the goal? When later thinking about your goal, did you return to a place of encouragement or discouragement? Have you committed mind, body and soul to the objective?

Goals don’t have to be a struggle. That’s not the point of goal-setting. The point of goal-setting is to feel empowered enough to get what you want in this lifetime. It’s to set your sights on some desired outcome, savor the process getting there and then indulge in the results. The key to goal-setting is first to set an intention, keep it at attention, and take comfortable action towards it.
