Hurry… listen in
Is this conversation familiar:
‘I wish I could be like Janice. For months now she’s been religiously working out at the gym. She gets on that treadmill and does her thing for ages. I’m so jealous!’ Sighed Sue as she sipped on her large mug of strong, black coffee.
‘Yeah, doesn’t she just look great,’ Barb laughed as she took a bite. ‘This pizza tastes great!’
‘You know, I read in a magazine that if you really want to lose weight you should not just wish you want to lose weight, you have to do something about it,’ Sandra said, feeling proud of herself, yet choosing her words carefully so as not to upset delicate Sue. ‘You could take action and more.’
‘What do you mean?’ Barb was now paying attention, realising that Sandra was leading to something that could make sense.
‘Well, I mean,’ Sandra blushed as all the attention was on her. ‘I am sure many of us have come up with New Year Resolutions, or we may have other wishes and things we want to accomplish in our lives, right?’
Nods went around the table. Sandra went on, ‘The question is though, how many of us have set those wishes as goals that we genuinely and sincerely want to achieve? How many of us wrote them down as goals, and decided to be committed to achieving them?’
The previous nods changed to open-mouthed stares. ‘Maybe Sandra’s onto something here,’ Sue said, as she slurped on her second mug of coffee, almost choking.
‘You see, resolutions and wishes are merely whims. They are very weak in nature; they have no significant power.’ Sandra leaned forward basking in the glory of Miss Know-it-all for a change. ‘To turn these wishes into reality you must turn them into goals.’
‘Go on,’ they all said in unison.
‘Then write your goals, by hand by the way, every day. This way your goals will constantly be on your mind. And check this out,’ Sandra leaned forward and went into a whisper. ‘Because your goals are constantly on your mind, you will take action on them, daily, because they are what you want. And, get this, your subconscious mind will find opportunities for you to bring about those goals because it realised that those goals are important to you — otherwise you won’t write them down every day. Now isn’t that just plain WOW! Totally exciting?’
‘I like what you’re saying, girl.’ Barb announced as she pushed her plate away from her. ‘This pizza goes back. I’ll stick with the goals, conscious and unconscious stuff.’
Do you know what you GENUINELY want in your life? Have you set them as goals? Do you write them down in a journal several times a day?
If not, make it your decision now to decide what kind of future you want. Turn them into goals, write them down by hand, and take daily action to achieve them.
Remember this: It is the decisions that you make today that affect your future.
