One Minute Motivator # 337

Stuff does not just happen.

Everything that happens in your life was caused by you in some way.

Good or bad, it is all your doing. Perhaps you focused on what you did not want and it appeared. Or you focused on what you did want and that appears. Either way you did it. You are dealing with powerful forces, and they are not to be taken lightly. Be aware of where you focus is as you will soon be there.

What are you headed for right now?

Just because something happened doesn’t mean you have to keep thinking about it.

Sometimes an event occurs and for whatever reason, we keep it in our minds even though it really doesn’t matter to us.

We carry it around even though it is not something that will help move our life ahead or is important in any particular way. It helps to take an inventory every now and then of what we are thinking about. You will be surprised at what you find. And once you find “junk” thoughts and toss them, you will feel much better and be more focused.

What thoughts are you carrying around right now?

How setting goals can hurt you.

If you set goals built around avoiding something you will focus on what you don’t want instead of what you do want.

Typically we set goals to change something bad that happened to us and this does not let us focus on the big things we really want in life. We focus on getting some irritation or disappointment out of our life. This causes us to miss the big picture and go on with an unfulfilled life.

Step back from your disappointments and focus on what really matters to you when setting goals.

You weren’t born to just pay bills and die.

Most people just use 1/20th of their abilities.

It isn’t that you don’t have the ability; it is that you don’t know what to do with it. You probably don’t have tightly focused goals that tie you interests and abilities together, so you can be a laser in life. Without that you have no reason to go to any extra effort or take risks. Yet that is what is required if you are going to be the person you were meant to be.

Are you ready to live your life?

Three key signals it is time to change your life.

Most of us don’t realize our life needs changing, so here are three wake up calls to tell you a better life awaits you.

1. You cannot wait till Friday. You dislike your job and/or are bored.

2. You have no focus, no burning desire. Not much motivates you.

3. You are frequently jealous. Other people seem to have it better than you.

These are all signs it is time to stop and think about what you want our of life and how you can put together baby steps to get there.

Are you ready to feel the buzz in life again?

The curious case of the missing goals.

It was a dark and stormy night and I woke up without a clue as what to do.
My goals were gone.

I rely on my goals help me make the best use of my time, money and effort and suddenly I was clueless. I had become “Common Man”, drifting along and doing whatever anyone else wanted me to do. My life wasn’t my own anymore. My outlook on life soured and my energy dropped.

A life without goals is no life at all.

You need a vision if you are going to be successful.

Having a vision and being willing to fight for it is the key to success.

A vision gives you something to live for, something to fight for, something to channel your thoughts and energy into. It is a way to take your goals into concrete terms this is easy to keep in your mind. Take your goals and combine them into a picture you can see, feel and smell.

Once you have your vision there is no stopping you.

Enough doesn’t matter, only more matters.

When you do enough it is OK, but it won’t get you anywhere. On the other hand doing more is the ticket to success.

If you want to stand out, or be successful on your own, you have to do more than what is required. It is the extra that counts. Everything before that does not count. And extra is where the growth is. An extra rep when exercising is where the muscles are built. This is true in every aspect of your life.

More is better.

The Nightmare On Goal Street.

Most people are terrified of setting goals.

And for good reason, they are fraught with things that can go bump in the night. You can end up looking bad, you can waste time, and the list is endless. The tragedy here is that most people that feel this way have never tried setting goals. They have never experienced the efficiency it brings to their lives. No constant thinking of what to do next, no floundering around trying to figure out what new developments mean to them. And they don’t realize goals can be changed in a heartbeat, in fact flexibility is a key to good goal setting. You see what is not working and bail.

Come out from under the bed and give goal setting a shot.

A test to see if you need better friends.

How your friends react to your goals will tell you if it is time to look for new friends.

Popular wisdom says not to tell people about your goals, as they will sabotage them, so you do not get ahead of them. It is true that many people do not want you to improve as they think they will feel bad seeing you become better than them in some way. I think you should use announcing your goals as a test of your friends. Ditch anyone that does not support you. You need all the support you can get when you are trying to improve yourself.

Keep the goals and lose the friends.
