More About Setting Goals

The whole purpose of goal setting is to help you get from where you are now to where you want to be in life, or in business.   If you set goals and work toward them resolutely, you can have all the things you want.  People who set and achieve their goals are people who've decided what it is that they want; have committed themselves to going after it; and haven't let anything stand in their way.

A properly set down goal gives you all the incentive you need to grow in your awareness of yourself, as well as of the laws of the universe; and living in harmony with this awareness will give you results you would never have dreamed possible.

It has often been said that being aware is therapeutic and gives deep meaning to life because it spells the end of what can otherwise be a simply mechanical existence.  The old ways of thinking that often persist with us are not ways we've chosen; they were planted in our hearts and minds by our parents, teachers, and religious leaders when we were young.

While some of these ideas which have been programmed into us may serve us well, many of them are harmful and really do need to be replaced. The old way of living and of handling pre-determined situations can keep us from having a truly abundant life.

However, in order to truly change, our old habits have to be replaced with new, healthy ones.   Having a really solid goal in place will serve as a constant help as we make any changes.  In reality, without a specific goal, we're unlikely to ever make a significant change in our lives.

While we're on our way towards achieving our goals, we actually do learn to choose which thoughts we'll allow into our minds. Only you will be able to see the connection between these thoughts; the feelings and attitudes they produce; and ultimately the results they will yield.  It's definitely not something that someone else can do for you.
