100DC Day 40: Goal Setting for Results

100 Day Challenge: Goal Setting for ResultsOne of the most profound principles taught by the late Stephen Covey in 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is that every act has two creations: one spiritual and the other physical.

Whether good or bad, or behavior is preceded by thinking and planning — even if only briefly.

Given this truth, recognize how powerful your thoughts are and that they are catalysts for future action. The corollary is that neglecting to plan and visual our goals makes us much less likely to move forward and take action. Whatever it is that occupies our spiritual selves will be most likely to get our physical attention as well.

This speaks to focusing on our goals, absorbing motivation, and obsessing over the positive.

If you want to be successful in any endeavor, you must take complete ownership of the process, which all begins with goal setting.

Recommit to your goals. Write them down every day. Take action on them every day. Envision what your life will be like once you’ve accomplished them.

    Maybe you can persuade me to accomplish a goal. There are so many things I want in life by get so bogged down doing day to day stuff, working, errands, and all that the days just go by.

    SistaYo, welcome to P2B. Doing more than going with the flow does take self-mastery. But it’s worth doing!
