Goals

May 20, 2016

“The ultimate reason for setting goals is to entice you to become the person it takes to achieve them.”

-Jim Rohn

I was sifting through Darren Hardy’s infinite wisdom this morning. Apparently conventional wisdom has it all wrong when it comes to goals:

*Write down goal -> Take action to achieve goal*

This is an ineffectual framework. The more effective framework looks like the following (hence the aforementioned quote):

*Write down goal -> BE(come) person you need to be to achieve goal*

You are encouraged to state your new-found characteristics in the BE (present) form, and not the BECOMING (future) form. For if you are becoming, you will never get there.

Perhaps the most potent truth not covered by Hardy is the following: Achievement is not outside of us; achievement, like everything else that carries true value, is found within. The more you see your goal as external, the further you run from yourself in the pursuit of emptiness.

Your external goal may be perpetually down the road, however BEING the person to accomplish that goal can start today.
