When was the last time you were excited to get up in the morning and start your day? If it was recent, what was the reason? Were you inspired by a worthy goal? Do you have goals? If so, are they written down? All great questions and all questions do get an answer. It's the quality of the question that determines the quality of the answer. Earl Nightingale is quoted as saying "success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal (goal)." Worthy of you. Worthy of you trading your life for and as long as you are working towards that goal by definition you are successful.
It has been researched countless times that most people don't set conscious goals. However, our brain is a goal-seeking machine and without new conscious goals, it will default to the ones already built in. In other words, most of the goals you set may be ones you have already achieved and they offer no growth, let's call them A-type goals. You may even set B-type goals. B-type goals are ones that we think we can reach, and they offer no inspiration. You are pretty sure you can achieve them by doing a few certain things and making a few known moves. Let's redefine the purpose of goals as "goals are not for getting they are for growing", which makes the "worthy ideal (goal)" or C-type goal the fantasy goal, the goal you do not know how to reach.
C-type goals create the most inspiration and growth. They excite us. They make us want to get up in the morning and be eager to begin our day. C-type goals bring out our passion and make us feel we are living our purpose and if you are like me you want to thrive not just survive. What makes this so interesting is the fact that the "how" to reach these types of goals doesn't show up until we make a decision to go after what we really want. Once we decide on what we want, and make the decision to go after it without concerning ourselves with the "how" neuro-pathways start to form in our brain and the "how" starts to reveal itself.
To set a worthy or C-type goal means we have to decide on what we want. How we do that is a topic for another blog. Once we deiced what we want we have these decisions to make; are we willing and are we able? If we decide yes, the plans begin to appear every time without fail. The whole plan seldom appears, it is what do I do next that appears. Now do that and as we move towards what we want our plans will certainly change just like a guidance system constantly adjusting to stay on course. Remember the goal once discovered rarely changes, only the plans.
This information is not new it has been taught and shared for over 100 years. This is the accumulation of study, research, and experiences, going back as far as Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, and Thomas Edison to the current day through Napolean Hill, Earl Nightingale, Bob Proctor, and the Proctor Gallagher Insitute.
