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.
