Only 8% of people actually achieve their goals.
“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts,
liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.” — Andrew Carnegie
Do you ever wonder how some people achieve incredible things time and time again, while others just seem to spend their entire lives stuck in the same place?
And no, it's not privilege, good luck, superior capabilities or divine intervention.
If you ask any person who has achieved success in their professional life, personal life or in their own personal development what their secret is, they will all tell you that their road to success started with a truly compelling vision for their life.
Or in other words, they set clear, empowering and deeply personal GOALS.
Now you might be saying "Perfect, I already have goals" and I'm sure that's true, but are they truly GREAT goals? Are they crystal clear? Are they big or daring enough? Do they TRULY excite and inspire you?
Do they align with the things you love, value and cherish most? Do they align with YOUR deepest desires and dreams?
GREAT goals can be the difference between you living a mediocre life and a life beyond your wildest dreams (that life of happiness and fulfilment you KNOW you're worthy of but may not know how to achieve). That may sound hard to imagine, but it's absolutely true. The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your goals.
GREAT goals give you purpose and direction in life. Because if YOU don't dictate the direction of your life, it's like you're on a boat and instead of sailing it you just float and let the tide take you where it wants. Chances are you'll end up lost or somewhere you don't want to be.
GREAT goals can light up your life and give it meaning, purpose, spark and direction.
GREAT goals achieved, can transform you into a version of yourself you never thought was possible.
The process will stretch your imagination, your capabilities, your self-worth and help you Self-
actualise your vision.
GREAT goals give you excitement, fulfilment, drive and determination.
The problem is, the vast majority of people set their goals in one of the following ways:
They don't and they have no goals at all
They set uninspiring, easy or mediocre goals
They set goals that don't align with THEIR OWN values. For example, they set goals based on the influences in their life, like their parents, partner, society and even social media. They design their goals to suit other people's expectations and not their own.
