Who Do You Need To Become To Make It Happen For You?
'We cannot become what we need to be remaining what we are.' -Max Dupree
Year after year, month after month, day after day, you have hoped for change.
You have dreamed and desired to accomplish your goal, to make it "big time", to get a better job, to start your own business, to pursue your academic aspirations, to find meaningful relationships, to lose the weight, to improve your financial situation and yet, year after year, month after month, day after day, there has been little or no significant change in your situation.
It's not that you're not motivated or passionate or serious enough about making your dream come true?as a matter of fact you are! But, the problem is that, you keep doing the same old things which don't produce results over and over again.
Consequently, you are still doing the same old job you dislike so much, struggling financially, steadily gaining the weight and almost giving up on your dream. To sum it up, " you are miserable!"
If the things you are doing, the plans you are making and the strategies you are pursuing don't produce results, STOP doing them today.
The sooner you realize that unless you change the way you perceive things and begin to do things differently, the quicker you will get the results you so desire.
'There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.' -Peter Drucker
To be able to live your best life and achieve your dreams and goals?some changes have to be made and they have to be made as soon as possible.
The goal may remain the same but either you "the person" or the main "game plan" has to change.
After re-examining all your stagnant goals and dreams and making a fresh commitment to pursue them, ask yourself the following three crucial questions which will help you do things differently and get you to finally take action on your goals.
1.Who do you need to become to achieve your goal? What qualities do you need to adopt? (Get really specific.)
2. Now that you have a second chance at pursuing this goal, what will you do differently? List what did not work in the past and what your new plans are.
3.What do you need to add to your life and what do you need to eliminate from your life to ensure that this goal is accomplished? Write out a list of do's and don'ts.
After truthfully answering this questions and choosing to apply the answers to your situation, you will get the needed ammunition to successfully pursue your goal.
