GOALS - Anichebe

Last week Saturday, while arranging the drawers, my wife found a future journal I wrote dated 24th October 2009, it was something I did after reading a book - The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. In it, I stated all the future goals I'd wanted to achieve in the next 5 years.

Five years later, all four out of 5 financial, legacy and personal goals had been met except one goal (but I'm working on it).

What are your goals? That's the question I like to answer this morning. I've discovered that perhaps 80% of people don't have dreams or specific goals — and that's downright appalling. Just wandering through this journey called Life with no headlights (vision) and hands off the steering wheel (no direction) is an accident waiting to happen.

Success in Life is not by chance or luck. Success is the progressive achievement of a preset goal — but first you must set the goal, visualise it and write it down where you can see it daily.

The difference between where you are now and where you want to be will create a dissonance called Motivation. Then no one has to push you, the vision alone will be enough to pull you. Only then will you be sufficiently inspired to pursue it.
