23-045 Goals #3

Continuing with Principle #7 from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” entitled “Unleash the Power of Goal-Setting”, I set my intention to ponder how “considerations” play a factor in going after my goals. For instance if I have a goal like creating a large mandala painting, I would need to take certain things into consideration: material expenses, the time and effort it’s going to take me to finish it, the time taken away from other people and other projects, and then what will I do with a large painting after it’s done, do I have a place to store it or put it on display? While all of these are valid considerations and definitely need to be addressed…the important question is: am I going to let any of these “considerations” keep me from achieving my goal?

Canfield states: “…surfacing these considerations is a good thing. They are how you have been subconsciously stopping yourself all along. Now that you have brought them into conscious awareness, you can deal with them, confront them, and move past them.

So how about you? Are you aware of your “considerations”? Do you let them stop you? Have you found a way to take “things” into consideration and yet still move forward with achieving your goals.

The only thing I know is
that I paint because I need to,
and I paint whatever
passes through my head
without any other consideration.
