I was in a meeting yesterday and we began talking about goals in all different aspects of your life.
They had you put your goals for a month from now, 6 months, 1 year, and 5 years. As I began writing I was very focused on my short-term goals, as I write them down often and I conduct a meeting every Wednesday to keep me accountable for them. But when it came to putting my 1 to 5 year goals down on paper I had to really analyze and ponder what I wanted to write.
Where did I want to be? What did I want to be known as? What did it take to get there?
5 years seems to be so far away, but as I really took a look at life the last 5 years have truly flown by! Think about how much more attainable and accountable you will be for these goals if they are staring you in the face each and everyday for the next 5 years.
There is infinite potential for each and every one of you and when you have a clear and concise focus reaching these goals is so powerful!
I read an article from one of the creators of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series and he was explaining the impact that writing his goals had for him. When he was in his early 20’s he had written down what he wanted his ideal home and family to look like. He got so detailed that he even drew a picture of his house. 8 years later his son was up in the attic and found a piece of paper and said “Dad what is our house doing on this piece of paper” The man turned to look at what his son was talking about and lo and behold was the picture he had drawn 8 years prior of the exact house that they were currently living in.
He had taken the time to put his goals on paper, and by doing this was he was obtaining them in his subconscious.
So I challenge you all to take out a piece of paper and write the following goals:
then write another list for 5 years from now:
Revisit them often, and as you grow and change let your goals do the same.
