CREDOS: Goals get you there
After I wrote my first book, “Wings for Wisdom”, I had many people ask me how I did it. I would reply, “I set a goal”. Many of them looked at me strangely after I had said that. “What do you mean ?”, they would say. I would then give them a step by step description of how I did it.
I had read many books on goal setting, I had implemented bits and pieces of each of these books in my life. Some of the books went on and on; they would make your eyes glaze over !
So, I decided to write my second book, Wings for Goals. I wanted a book that was short and sweet. One that was to the point about goal setting.
So, of course, I set my goal and started to write the book, Wings for Goals.
I can honestly say that setting goals has changed my life. I have accomplished things in my life by
setting goals that I previously only dreamed about. Goals do work. There is a saying, “you have a gold mine, when you have a goal mind”. And, it is true.
Of course, you can put your pen to paper, write down your goals, but the most important thing is to take action and complete each step of your goal.
And lastly, goals are not written in stone. If you don’t make a timeframe or your plans change, then change your goals. But, the most important thing is that goals help you focus on what you want in your life !
To quote Dwight Eisenhower, “Accomplishments will prove to be a journey, not a destination”. Your goals will be a journey, and you will see accomplishments, and one goal will lead to another ! By setting goals and
taking action, you will accomplish more in a
year than most people accomplish in a lifetime! Let this be the guide for moving on in life of accomplishments.
