YOUR GOALS MUST BE MEANINGFUL

YOUR GOALS MUST BE MEANINGFUL

“Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.” – Zig Ziglar

Key element number 2 in achieving your goals is that your goals must be meaningful. Are you willing to do whatever it takes to achieve your goal? In other words, are you willing to give your total commitment to achieving your goals?

If you want a chance at achieving your goals you need to write them down. When you do write them down ask yourself what is really important to you. Why are you doing this and what are you prepared to give up to succeed. Another good question to ask yourself is what will be the benefits to you when you achieve your goals.

Asking yourself these questions and writing down the answers, is a big step in helping you get clear on your path to success.  Once you are clear in what you want, it will be easier to create your plan of action.  With a plan of action you will have a why to every one of your days.

You can take this one step further and make a dream board.  Find pictures that represent the goals you wish to achieve.  Paste them on a cardboard and place this dream board where you can see it every day.  Visualizing your goals help keep you positive and on track even on the days you really don’t feel like it.

About Mme Jocelyne

Hi, I'm a transplanted northerner–(born and raised in New York to French immigrants–Oui je parle Francais)-living in Florida for 20 years. In the 70's I worked as a realtor in the Bronx – City Island to be exact. Then I started a family and didn't keep up my license. I aspired to a career in architecture, so I went to New York Institute of Technology for three years, moved to Florida and finished my degree at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After 10 years of working in my dream career I sustained an injury to my shoulder. This injury never healed because I was constantly on the computer doing cad design. I finally decided to make a career change – something where I could use my training as an architect. Needless to say, I was worried – where will the money come from? How will I be able to afford my career change? But, I put my faith in God and went for it. It’s the best move I ever made, other than my husband, children and dogs.
