Goal: Motivation for the World, One Word at a Time

Goal… an excerpt from the soon to be released book:

Motivation for the World, One Word at a Time by Gary A. McAbee

 goal

Goal is one of the success keywords we all have used at one time or another. A goal by definition is an ending. This means goals are a part of a process that will eventually lead to a conclusion. Close inspection of this definition reveals that a goal does not have a positive or negative end. It is just the end toward which effort is directed. So it is important to note that people can have goals that lead toward construction and good things, or goals that lead toward destruction and bad things. Ether scenario requires effort, and this is where so many people miss the mark. Obviously, we want to use goals to build and lead to greater heights and victory.

Most people know what goals are by definition, but knowledge of the road to get to goal-setting can be a mystery. We completed the Wish Upon a Star exercise together, yet this effort did not include any planning. It simply established what victory looks like, and encouraged us to have faith. I did this purposely to prove that most people start with the concept of victory, and then build their faith to achieve it. Many continue to think about the possibilities of victory through faith, and if in order to be successful. Some think about victory, faith, if, and then dream. Fewer people think about victory, faith, if, and dream, in order to develop a vision. Even less people think about victory, faith, if, dream, vision, and then find their passion. Only a handful of people think about victory, faith, if, dream, vision, passion, and then use all of these things to establish and write down their goals!

Many people set goals and seek to make an honest attempt at achieving them. However, unless a goal is written and committed to memory, it is little more than a wish. I honestly do not believe unwritten goals become dreams or visions. I think these goals are lost, or at least directionless. Goals that are not written are like ships that sail without a compass. They might have a good idea about how to get to the end result, but the true path to get to the destination does not exist. I believe it is almost impossible to complete a worthwhile goal without a well-thought out, written plan! As a side note, there are some people with beautiful minds who can memorize things without writing them down. If this is you, go for it. However, remember that writing those goals down will serve to strengthen, not hinder the goal-setting process.

We must ask how successful people set self-imposed goals that lead them toward higher achievement. I believe successful people expect victory. To achieve their victory, they strategically plan and write down their time-oriented goals. They allow time-oriented goals become self-imposed goals through creating realistic dates of completion. Successful people can make their self-imposed goals become socially- imposed goals for others. In other words, they do not wait for others to set goals for them. Finally, once their goal is met, successful people set new, higher goals! You too can use this blueprint to achieve your goals. The time is now! Complete a goal-setting worksheet today!
