Set Goals To Create Your Best Future

Aug 17, 2007
Unless you have a goal, you will simply drift through life. The days, weeks, months, and years will fly by and you won't even be able to remember how you passed the time.

How would you like your life to be five years from now? Will your life have momentum, or will you be continuing a variation of the same struggles? How do you envision it? What people, places, things will you be experiencing five years from now?
Will you be experiencing a great deal of pleasure, or variations of pain or boredom?

If you make a decision today, right now, to take control of how your life is flowing and if you decide to envision what you want and set a goal, this could very well be a very memorable day in your life.

Don't let your inner critic, who comes off as so reasonable and so intelligent, dissuade you from setting goals and taking actions. Also, remember the only meaningful goals
are those that fill you with passion. You have to dream big dreams if you want to summon the emotional energy to make them come true.

Some people like to pick one goal. Others, several goals. It doesn't really matter how you choose to set your goals. You will get there if your intention is strong enough.

Do what Buckminster Fuller, the inventor, did: decide to live your life as a scientific experiment. You will be both the experimenter and the test subject of your own life.

When you think of doing a "little experiment" you can still your fears of failure. You will quit worrying about how to pay the price of success. Instead, this attitude of trying something and noticing the response takes the pressure off.

Imagine, just for a moment, how it would feel to commit to creating the life that you want, even if, right now, you have no idea how to get there.

Write down your goals. Make them into affirmations that you will read to yourself every day. Then make a plan, any plan, with what you know now, with what you have right now, to get started.

Do this and changes will start happening quickly. Better plans will emerge. New opportunities will arise. Best of all, you'll find your life much more exciting,
fulfilling, and enjoyable.

Five years from now you will look back on this day and say, "How is it that I have a life this good, where I am relaxed, peaceful, and successful. Here I am in the right place, doing the right things. And I'm with the right people, too!"

Set up your goals today. As a little experiment. It's easy to stop drifting and create a sense of direction.
