The absolute worst and most unimaginable thing that you can do to yourself is to decide ahead of time what you are capable of.
You are capable of more than you can even imagine.
That’s why goal setting is sooooo stinking tricky! We tend to write down things that we are pretty sure we can achieve. We play safe and when we play safe, we show up safe. Showing up safe is not brave or courageous, it’s just safe.
Setting massive goals, big-ass, mack-daddy goals feels scary and huge and outside of anything that we can imagine for ourselves. Exactly!
Set goals that excite you and scare you and energize you and push you to do things that you never imagined yourself doing…seriously, do it!
What is that thing that you can’t let go of? That thing that feels like it only happens for other people, what is it? Write it down.
Write down the story of achieving that goal. Not the how, the what. Describe what you achieved as if you have already achieved it. How does it look, how does it feel, how does it smell?
What are your thoughts and emotions about achieving this goal? Describe it all!
What will you day be like when you achieve this goal, what’s the first thing you do and what is the last thing you do every day when you reach this goal?
Just let your thoughts run wild and crazy and reckless with the possibility of what is possible…and write it all down, every last thought.
Do you want to know why?
Your brain will look for evidence that your thoughts are true. You will start seeing opportunities, you will recognize the universe working in your favor. You will start believing in what is possible. You will move one step closer 1% at a time.
A very wise man is known for this quote and I believe it to be true…In fact, I am counting on it to be absolutely 100% truth.
”Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you are right!” Thank you Henry Ford.
Now, go be a goal setting, goal getting, goal digger!!!
