Goals are a curious thing
Where do they come from? Who said they were the right goals? Why do I see meeting my quota as a goal and running a marathon as not a goal? How did that get wired?
Why “goals” anyway?
Seems like we’re supposed to have goals, right? But, have we even examined why we have the goals we do? Have you? How do they serve you? DO they serve you?
The ATTAINABLE goals…the goals with the glory!
Somehow, the goals that I have achieved in my life – yes, even EXCEEDED – with wild and flying colors – seem to have PICKED ME!
It’s like a secret, strong, and silent voice urged me to GO FOR that one thing. And it was EASY to commit, even felt natural. It does NOT MEAN they were easy to achieve, but I had the heart – the gusto – the “over-my-dead-body” about them.
Am I setting the goals I think I “should” set?
Am I setting goals because setting goals is the right thing to do?
Or, am I paying attention to that inner pull? Maybe “my purpose”?
So, I’ve learned to trust the goals that HAVE ME!
They wake me up early in the morning. They drive me. They take me to the places that I want to go.
Can we take a moment and give ourselves over to the things that HAVE US?
Instead of the things that we “think” we should have?
Just a thought!
Love your goals UP!
