Continuing with Principle #7 from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles” entitled “Unleash the Power of Goal-Setting”, I set my intention to ponder the idea of going after big goals. He states: “To achieve a big goal, you are going to have to become a bigger person. You are going to have to develop new skills, new attitudes, and new capabilities. You are going to have to stretch yourself, and in so doing you will be stretched forever.”
For me this means I need to trust the inner drive to go after a big goal, while knowing and working with my considerations, fears, and roadblocks (see last three MotDs). I have to know and believe that it’s possible, that I’m capable, and that I’m worthy of going after it (them). One way I know to do this is to act like a person who knows that this goal is already achieved and then ask myself: what and who would I have to be to make it happen and what would I have had to do to have made it happen.
So how about you? Are you ready to go after bigger goals? Are you willing to at least consider the possibility of their achievability? What’s the biggest issue for you about going after your bigger goals?
“Fear is excitement— Gay Hendricks from “The Big Leap”
without the breath.
Here’s what this
intriguing statement means:
the very same mechanisms
that produce excitement
also produce fear,
and any fear can be transformed
by breathing fully with it.”
