Goals involve intention
Unlike dreams, goals are something you want to achieve. That implies several things. The most important is, there is an intention to accomplish them. Calling them goals means you have an end in mind and having an intention strengthens your commitment to them. As a result, you become “goal-oriented.” Goal orientation is the degree in which you focus on the tasks and the end result of those tasks.
So whether it’s a career goal, life goal or sports performance goal, the outcome has to have meaning to you and inspire you to do what it takes to accomplish to complete it.
What else do you need to accomplish your BIG goals?
This is especially important with respect to big goals as they may require considerable time and energy.
- Competitive Edge
If you want to super-achieve find a way to be unique and driven. Have the edge and differentiate yourself, your service, your game and position yourself for success.
Sometimes the path may be bumpy and may require a change to get the results. Stay focused on the goal but be ready to change and adapt.
- Risk Taker
Be fearless, be bold, and be ready to go for what you want. Develop the confidence to take those risks necessary.
Sometimes you’ll feel stretched, burnt-out, pressured. Stay strong and bounce back. Every important goal will present you with challenges along the way.
If making a total commitment to success shrink those challenges down THEN commit!
I always say ‘share’ your goals as once you do you become more accountable as they are known to others and you want to succeed. Hire a coach if necessary as they’ll hold you accountable.
