Tony Robbins is quoted as saying “Success is doing what you want to do, when you want, where you want, with whom you want, as much as you want.”
Do you agree with this quote?
Does it mean success is living the perfect life?
For most of us we are aiming for success and a perhaps perfect or near perfect life. We can do this via the development of SMART goals. Sometimes it’s just about aiming to be worry free!
We all know this don’t we?
And so why aren’t we all successful in achieving what we want?
Why haven’t we achieved our full potential or achieved success yet?
If we know what we want and how to go about it, we should realise what we need to do and when, what discipline to use and why we chose it to get what we want.
If you know what you want, when you want it and how you are going to achieve it then ask yourself why haven’t you achieved it (yet)?
Some would say it’s because you didn’t want it badly enough!
Would they be right?
It could be because we are chasing the wrong goals, walking up the wrong path for us, choosing the wrong lane or not believing in ourselves.
To determine how badly you want to achieve your goals, here are some steps you might want to use to ‘test’ if these are the right goals for you:
- Decide on your top 3 goals
- Write down your top 3 goals
- Ask yourself why you want this goal
- Ask yourself what this goal ‘gives’ you
- Ask yourself what this goal helps you feel
It’s one thing choosing the right goal and for the right reasons to achieve our full potential or achieve success, but we must also realise that achieving our goals starts and finishes with US!
Sometimes it can just be us that’s holding us back and believing we can’t do this and can’t do that, when in actual fact we CAN do anything we want to if we put our minds to it.
Choosing the right goal for the right reasons and believing in ourselves will enable you to be the success you want to be.
