Success and goal setting

.
Life and success could be compared to a vertical spiral. We all have our place on this spiral; there is no staying in the middle, all of us are either positively climbing this spiral or negative descending it. It is our thoughts and the way that we use them that will decide whether we rise or descend this spiral.

The same is true in nature every living thing is either growing or retracting. There is no in the middle ground, yet in life many wrongly think that it is possible to stay at one point forever and that nothing will ever change. Benjamin Franklin notice this believe in people –

“Tis day and will never be night” – Benjamin Franklin

Knowing this we must look forward and upward, setting goals that will allow us to grow as a person in skills, knowledge and character. Time marches on. Do not wait for time and events to overtake you, forget the past it is gone forever. Get to work on the future by setting and working on the right goals now. Set a mixture of goals, a mixture of goal sizes and a mixture of goal time scales – short term – medium term and long term goals.

Everyday concentrate on being appositive person, never allowing negativity to remain for long, everyday concentrate on your goals and keep them dominant amongst your thoughts.

Think of your place on the success spiral and then start to climb it some more by goal setting to reach more success and personal growth.

Opportunity poem

Opportunity
by Berton Braley

With doubt and dismay you are smitten
You think there’s no chance for you, son?
Why, the best books haven’t been written
The best race hasn’t been run,
The best score hasn’t been made yet,
The best song hasn’t been sung,
The best tune hasn’t been played yet,
Cheer up, for the world is young!

No chance? Why the world is just eager
For things that you ought to create
Its store of true wealth is still meagre
Its needs are incessant and great,
It yearns for more power and beauty
More laughter and love and romance,
More loyalty, labour and duty,
No chance–why there’s nothing but chance!

For the best verse hasn’t been rhymed yet,
The best house hasn’t been planned,
The highest peak hasn’t been climbed yet,
The mightiest rivers aren’t spanned,
Don’t worry and fret, faint hearted,
The chances have just begun,
For the Best jobs haven’t been started,
The Best work hasn’t been done.

Keep everything in proportion in order to be successful and reach your goals.

.
In order to be successful and to reach your goals, as well as maintaining your success when you reach it, a number of things must be considered.

Keep everything in proportion –
Show me a person that was a heavy drinker as they were becoming successful, I think that you will be a long time in naming one.
Show me a person that was a gluttonous eater as they were becoming successful, I think that you will be a long time in naming one.
Show me a person that was a fool with their money as they were becoming successful, I think that you will be a long time in naming one.
Show me a person that was obsessed with the “birds and the bee’s” as they were becoming successful, I think that you will be a long time in naming one.

There is something in that! No one is saying to avoid these things altogether, but rather to keep them in their place and in the correct proportion. Overindulgence in these activities or any other, and they will get out of hand and will limit your success.

A servant cannot have two masters, for he will hate one and love the other. – The Bible.

You will become what you think about, so keep your mind only on the things that you really want, not what passes the time or is tension relieving.

 

Richard Branson / Service / Goals

.
To go out into the world of business in a selfish, damn everyone else way, only after short term financial gain and with no care at all to the quality of service that you offer, is sure to lead to ultimate failure, which is rightly deserved!

It has often been said that- “we get what we want, by helping others to get what they want.” Quality of service must never be overlooked, even in difficult times and markets. Always give of yourself the best that you can in the quality of service that you offer, go the extra mile when needed and be sure that the customer is happy.

Be sure that you are in the right type of business for your personality and interests. When we do the work that we love, it is no work at all. The time goes by quickly when we are rightly proud of our work and our results. A customer will feel and pick up on the pride we have in what we do; in just the same way a customer will be turned off by a poor attitude or quality of service. You know yourself that you will avoid those in service or business that treat you or supply you poorly.

Reaching your goals will so often be affected by how you treat others who are pursuing theirs.

“……you’re trying to create something this is original, that stands out from the crowd, that will last and hopefully serve some useful purpose. Above all, you want to create something that you are proud of. That has always been my philosophy of business. I can honestly say that I have never gone into any business to make money” – Richard Branson.

 

Attract your goal, here and now, just do it.

.

Stay in the here and now! And attract your goal, here and now, by just doing it, doing it, doing it, until it’s done.

You can only affect your future from the present, by doing all that you must do at the present time without delay.

Do not keep your mind on the past or what might have been, look to your future, work towards your future and make that bright, new exciting future happen by just getting on and doing it now.

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you’ve imagined!”
– Hendry David Thoreau

Be smart in the pursuit of your goals, if you can find an easier way to reach your goal, go ahead and do it now.
Be smart in the pursuit of your goals, if you can find a smarter, quicker way to reach your goal, just go ahead and do it now.
Be smart in the pursuit of your goals, if you can find any method for removing delays to reach your goal, just go ahead and do it now.
-But always be sure to be honest and fair to all.

“The best way to predict your future is to create it”
– Peter F Drucker

Do not become lost in the planning, lost in the past or lost in some other way that will prevent you from reaching your goal. Live in the here and now, do not delay or put off any longer than necessary your bright new future. Set your goal, pursue your gaol, attract and reach your goal – do it now!

 

Goal setting – 1st July 2011

.
You may have been recently reviewing your progress towards your goals this year, now that we are half way through the year. Or you may have been reviewing your recent progress towards your goals. Either way you must learn from your past and not be chained to the past. Learn what works for you and what does not work for you. You will never fail if you learn from the experiences of the past, something you’ll later find to be of value, although sometimes you may have to dig deep to find it.

Be positive, it’s the start of a new month full of opportunities waiting to be found by you. Set a new goal for yourself if you are ready to this month or continue working on your present one.

Understand fully the reason why you want that goal; that will provide you with all the natural desire and energy needed to reach that goal. The stronger the reason why, the more desire and energy you will have in perusing that goal.

By all means have a list of goals that you want to reach, but it is best you work on one goal at a time, putting all of your energy into just that one. If you have a big list of goals, some may be interlinked in some way. Working on one of these interlinked goals may actually have a beneficial knock on effect on other goals on your list. So look at your goals list and choose which one to work on first carefully.

“All successful people have a goal. No one can get anywhere unless he knows where he wants to go and what he wants to be or do.” – Norman Vincent Peale

For the next 31 days of this month, keep your goal clearly before you, by keeping it amongst your dominant thoughts. In doing that along you will then be able to see many opportunities around you, you will get great ideas and flashes of insight. Be ready.
