Self-Encouragement | What are your goals and dreams?

Self-Encouragement | What are your goals and dreams?

We get what we deserve. – So what do we deserve and who decides on it?

To be blunt, it’s your own responsibility. You make the decision. You set the course for your goals and dreams.

„You were born to win, but to be a winner you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win“. – Zig Ziglar

– If you believe in yourself and work towards achieving your goals, you will reach them.
– If you set up a route determining the shortest and safest way to your goals and follow your plan, you will reach them.
– If you differentiate between activities that lead you to your goals and those that let you procrastinate, and if you then pursue your goals, you will reach them.

Jim Rohn reveals the secret to success: just practice a few disciplines every day.

“Okay, but what if I’m not clear on my own goals and dreams? In the end they might all be only dreams, bursting like a soap-bubble.”

Here’s my suggestion: Take some time off and relax. You might enjoy going for a walk in a park first. Breathe. Then grab a pencil and a blank sheet of paper. Find a place to sit where you are not disturbed. Think about your life today:

Where are you now?
Who are you?
Are you with your loved ones?
What do you do for a living and is it paying off?
How much time and money do you spend on your hobbies?
Do you take time off to travel and refuel your personal power tanks?
Do you love your job?

Imagine your life to come:

What are your goals and dreams?
Where do you want to live?
What does your house/apartment look like?
What kind of interior design do you like best?
What kind of knowledge interests you?
What new knowledge do you want to acquire?
Who do you want to learn from?
What job, career and income goals are important to you?
What kind of car do you want to drive?
Where to do you want to travel?
What do you want to see in this world?
What events are important to you?
What hobbies do you love?
What hobbies will be yours in future?
What social projects will you support?
How many friends do you want to have?
Who is in your network?
Who do you want to develop a strong and reliable friendship with?

Use your pencil and blank paper. Write down your thoughts, draw sketches of your new house, your car or your boat. Connect your ideas, dreams and goals to each other. Create a mind map! Let all your thoughts and ideas pour out of you. All your thoughts are welcome! Fill your paper until you feel good with it.

Then change into a lower gear again. Get up, move around and breathe. Get fresh air again. After five minutes return to your mind map. Take a good look at it. Is there something that you want to add? – Add it.

There they are: Your own personal goals and dreams!
