Power Of Goal-Setting

Published

on

To achieve your purposes in life, you must have the power, ability, capacity of setting clearly defined, purposeful goals and, most importantly, of having the character, discipline to act on them.

I have observed -over the course of the year- that highly developed, fully actualized people understand the importance of exploring their talents, uncovering their personal purposes and then applying their human gifts in the direction of their calling.

Some people exercise their talents in various fields as Physicians, Scientists, Writer, Teacher and so on. They have disciplined themselves to see their heroic mission and they ensured it serves people while they realize it.
What are you waiting for?
If you want to be anything, do anything, achieve anything, contribute immensely to your generation, GOAL-SETTING is the starting point. Mapping out your objectives and your goals releases the creative juices which get you on to the path of your purpose. Believe it or not.

How will you achieve your purposes without goal-setting?

Take a look at this story.
There lived a Wiseman in the ages past. He was very good at the art of archery. Countless of times, had he killed bear, strucking its eye, over a long distance, as far as 300feets. One day he took his student to a leveled ground in the forest with his precious bow, an arrow, a rose flower, and a white ankerchief. He attached the rose on the trunk of an Oak tree. He then told his student to blindfold him with the handkerchief and took him as far as 100 feets away from the oak tree. The student, having seen him struck a bull’s eye 300 feets away could surely do this miracle and hit the rose.

He drew the arrow with all his energy and release aiming at the rose on the tree. The arrow struck the large oak tree with a thud, missing it’s mark by a large distance.
‘What happened?’ The student asked.

That Story emphasizes the importance of setting goals. For you to fulfill your life’s purpose, know how to set goals. You’ll never hit a target that you cannot see.

Some people spend their whole lives dreaming of being happier, living with more vitality, wishin and having an abundance of passions. Yet they do not know the importance of even ten minutes a month to write down their goals and to think deeply about their lives.

As Robin Sharma put it, “goal-setting makes life magnificent. Your world will become richer, more delightful and more magical.”

Setting clearly objectives for whatever you desire, be it emotional, mental, physical or spiritual is critical to realization . Anyone who wishes improve the quality of his life, would do well to take out a piece of paper and start out their life aims.

Zig Ziglar said, “If you wanted any change, you would be in the process of changing right now.”

Wondering why writing out goals is so special?
Such a simple act could make a huge difference!
When you pen down your goals and desires on a piece of paper, you send a command, instructions to your subconscious mind that these goals are more important than those living only in your head. You subconscious mind will try every possible means of realizing your goals. Just like a guided missile. Whatever you give your Super-self, is what it will act upon.

You change your life the moment you start writing down your goals.

BOOKS

What Makes The GREAT Great?

Published

Yeah, what makes the great great? You have seen their glories and you should read their stories. What makes the great great is a book written by Dennis P. Kimbro, Ph.D. I didn’t know about the book till I got to a bookshop In Lagos. Then I went in search of the 50th law of power by Robert Greene and 50cent. I couldn’t lay my hands on it and I asked the book seller to give me any nice book and he did give me What Makes The Great Great. I was glad he did.

“If you want to be great and successful, you must walk hand-in-hand with great and successful people.” Nido Qubein

The book tells of the stories of great men and women, how they were able able to stand out among the crowd and made names for themselves. The author introduces inspiring people who have achieved greatness in their own unique ways, then highlights the qualities each of us must develop before we reach our full potential.

Regardless of your definition of success, the book provides approach of turning your dream to reality. Greatness is guaranteed when you discover life’s true calling, live more courageously, access knowledge and creativity of your mind and embrace integrity in everything you do.

We all have seeds of greatness in us, what makes the great great provides the tools to discover and nourish those seeds.

Dennis P. Kimbro asked some great men and women the question, What makes the great great? See some of their responses below:

When Bill Pinkney [the first African-American to sail solo around the world and the forty-first man to do so] was asked what makes the great great, his response was; “Don’t wait! Now is the time to fulfil your destiny. We must act with courage; look forward with hope; and view life through a lens that defines what can be done rather than what cannot be done. If you are willing to work and never, never quit, you can make your dream come true.” What does this message mean to you?

Percy Sutton said, “If you have but one wish let it be for an idea.”

Robert E. Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Television said, “Life is a grindstone, But whether it grinds you down or polishes you up depends upon what you are made of. And Rev Jesse Jackson added, “You may not be responsible for being knocked down, but you are certainly responsible for getting back up.”

What makes the great great

Henry Park of Park Sausage said, “In one hand I have a dream and in the other I have an obstacle. Tell me, which one grabs your attention?”

When Reverend Ike was asked what makes the great great, he said, “Do what I have done. “Open up a can! The world belongs to those who say I can.”

Mae Jemison, America’s first black female astronaut, when was asked what makes the great great said, “Greatness can be captured in a lifestyle. Life is God’s gift to you, style is what you make of it.”

Quincy Jones said, “Greatness occurs when your children loves you, when your critics respects you, and when you have peace of mind.”

Cornel West, an author and a professor said, “If you want to be great, you must serve willingly and love greatly.”

Oseola McCarty said, “Do as much as you can for as many as you can.”

And according to my observation, the greats are the people who understands what it means to simplify. They are the people who face one thing, face one passion and give in their best and do not believe in being jack of all trades. They are the people with determination and unshaken focus to do what they put before them. They are the people who have desires that burn. They are the people who say I will do this and never give up until they do. – SirPhren

Do you want to be great in that field you have chosen? Now you have just read about the opinions of some of the great men and women who have lived before us. Some of what they said is still valid and it will be nice to practice them.

There is only one thing that can stop you from being great. Do you want to know? Only you can stop you.

Robert Browning said, “When a man’s fight begins within himself, he is worth something.” And Bhagavad-Gita concluded, “A man’s own self is his friend, a man’s own self is his foe.”

If you really want to get your life together, this is one of the books you should probably read.

Which of these answers to what makes the Great great your favorite? Do you also know of other qualities of the Greats? Do share with me in the comment below.
