Keeping the Fire for Goals

Did you have a hard time staying motivated?

Have you ever been really excited to start a project only to lose the enthusiasm? Is there something dampening the fire in your belly burning to reach a target? Are you wanting to give up seeing no reason to finish a task? Don’t lose hope—there is help!

It begins by focusing on the central purpose of any project.

How to keep motivated usually emphasizes focus on the end goal. Focusing is correct, but not on the end goal. The secret of those who enjoy “good” success is not usually taught.

You must focus on your intention to reach the goal, not the goal itself.

To achieve a goal at the expense of others is to lose, not win. To believe it is a win reveals a warfare mentality. The marketplace today requires a new paradigm: winning ethically! Ethics is—and always will be—at the heart of good success.

A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world. Albert Camus

 

By definition, ethics is appropriate conduct. Your actions are always conducted in relation to society in general and your immediate contacts in particular. Living your life in a way to assist others brings happiness. It is not helping others to obtain happiness: that is egoism. It is offering hope selflessly without promoting selfish agendas.

We acknowledge that ethical success creates leaders. Leadership responsibilities need to be reflected in your business plan. Dream big with your plans and others will come along for the ride. You will attract clients, contacts, and colleagues to propel you to your goals. Take heed to the warning of Immanuel Kant, one of the central figures in modern philosophy:

So, we come to the crux of the matter: Goals. Your business plan, to become an effective road map, must have its destination clearly identified and marked. You need to answer four questions.

  1. What results do you need to prove your achievement of your Goals?
  2. What areas do you need to consider in order to have Goals of Value?
  3. What things do need to keep motivated? Achievement of your goals don’t just happen; they are created. And lastly,
  4. What actions do you need to take to reach your Goals?

There is a connection between diligence and prosperity. Prosperity is not measured by physical accomplishments but by inner character. Be sure your business plan reflects your life goals before calculating what is needed to do to accomplish them. Without thoughtful, planned commitment, your goals will remain as unaccomplished dreams
