Goal Achievement ! Yes Passion can help!

Most of us run through daily life focused on achieving. During waking hours we are chained to a computer, run from one meeting to another, while attending to the constant demands on our time via phone, text, email & twitter... Its a flurry of never ending activity. All this due to an incessant need to succeed or just meet obligations. However things don't always go to plan, its easy to get distracted or disheartened when we run into issues while constant challenges that make the achievement of our goals ever so hard. Challenges in our lives come from various sources, environmental, corporate, internal politics even family. When such challenges come our way you wonder what more do I have to do??

It's in this what more do I need to do? question that lies the answer. Goal setting is vital for achievement!  yet, are your goals deeply ingrained within your subconscious mind? Are "we chasing the lights of passing ships"?  I am a big believer in having goals, goals worthy of its achievement, written down, deeply ingrained within us or we will find our selves bogged down by activity, distraction & unimportant demands made on our time by others.

Goals need to be written and remembered daily. Goals are often written at the beginning of the year and forgotten within weeks of writing them.

If they are not "top of mind" we will not achieve them.  We need to be so passionate about our goals, they become part of our psyche and deeply embedded within our subconscious mind. Once our goals transcend to our subconscious mind there is nothing stopping us from achieving them, what ever obstacle we may face. You will find yourself in autopilot mode, homing towards your goal come what may...

I recently read this quote from the India philosopher Patangali,  

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

Need I say more.. Could it be said more beautifully! If you want to achieve then you must be deeply inspired and be passionate about its achievement.

"Set your goals by the stars in the sky not the lights of passing ships"

  1. Absolutely agree, goal setting should be taught - and ingrained, as early as possible. Then, just like steering a boat, constant attention and adjustment is needed to stay on course. And in the words of Winston Churchill - Never, Never, Never give up.
