We tend to complicate life, when it’s actually quite simple.
“Something is missing” means a few things (read on for those) but solving it starts with ONE thing…
We LOVE goals. We are goal seeking beings. To be truly happy and fulfilled, it’s important we have a goal.
We’ve lost touch with ourselves, we’ve forgotten what we need to make us happy – and keep us happy.
Without a goal, we are lost.
Without a goal we have no destination.
Without a goal, we feel empty and unfulfilled.
A goal changes it all. Seriously, filling the hole can be that simple.
Now, when I say “goal” it’s not just any goal…
…we want an OUTRAGEOUS FANTASY!
I hope that got your attention because we’ve been taught “fantasy” is just a fairytale, something you can never have… I’m here to tell you, you CAN have the FANTASY!!!
Do you think “flying” for the Wright Brothers was a fantasy? You bet it was. I’m sure you’ll agree it was an outrageous fantasy!
“I am looking for a lot of men who have an infinite capacity
to not know what can’t be done.”
It’s my belief there’s no goal, vision or desire too big for you to live. If you ask me, I’ll say, “YES, you can have that!” (and then I’ll help you get it)
And in addition – to make it more fun – it’s best if you have NO idea HOW you’ll achieve this thing you want.
Most people want to be sure they know HOW to achieve their goal before starting out. No, please please please don’t do that. That will only hold you back – and leave you feeling like something is missing.
Forget the how. The fun is in finding out HOW and that’s the plan. We want fun.
Do you know anyone who is often irritable, angry, anxious and overworked? Possible someone who has things going wrong, finds fault with others and/or may even be ill?
These are all signs of a person without a worthwhile goal.
It makes sense. If someone is suppressing their inner urge to go for life and achieve something worthwhile, they will most likely feel irritable and possibly ill.
By contrast, when we have an awesome goal, one that engages us wholeheartedly and makes our heart sing – what time do we have for fault-finding or for illness?
Now, why do I suggest making your goal something HUGE and outrageous?
(even better if others think it’s impossible, something you’re crazy to even consider : )
Because there’s a second layer to this – the purpose of any worthwhile goal is to create and GROW.
One of our primary purposes on Earth is to GROW. And, even more fabulously, growth turns into wisdom.
“Rather than exist each day in some dull, boring habitual manner, move into action on a big idea.
Everyone is on the brink of possibility. Your responsibility is to discover what that possibility is for you.”
~~ Bob Proctor
In the same way that the FUN is in finding out how you’ll achieve your goal, your GROWTH will also come from finding out HOW to achieve your goal.
Fun…growth…wisdom all brought together. A great goal will do it!
Did you know, it’s not about achieving the goal?
It isn’t about what you acquire.
It’s about who you become as you grow. Y
ou grow into… you become the person who achieves big things.
(which means you achieve the goal… and more!)
When you’re growing you feel truly alive, vibrant and happy. You’re living on purpose.
“The science of neuroplasticity has found strong evidence as to why new knowledge and experiences keep us healthy and happy.
It seems that new mental activities – preferably ones we enjoy – keep our brain younger by maintaining our ability to pay attention and to learn new information. Endlessly repeating the same activities causes us to lose those abilities.
There also seems to be a link between the state of our happiness and how many new neurons we produce. They apparently help us to see the world in new and different ways, and to recognize when we are having new experiences.
If our world looks the same every day, it’s depressing.”
~~ Janet Poole – Excerpt from “How to Get Anything You Want – Just Like That!”
If someone has no goal, they WILL feel something is missing.
They are not growing.
To be happy and fulfilled we must be GROWING!
PS. If you’re someone who has no idea what you want, but you know it’s something – please understand that is completely normal, and that there is a way through that!
PPS. When you aren’t growing you’re also stifling your natural urge to create and to use your own natural abilities and talents – those same talents that stay hidden in most people their whole life.
And remember, most people think being “creative” is something an artist does. No. Creating is anything that is new for you, that’s all.
Go for it and never hold back!
This is Janet Poole; I believe in finding better ways to live your life and grow your business.
I believe in sharing those ideas!
Better Ways. More Freedom.
