Is it a GOAL or PRINCIPAL?June 26, 2016 57 Comments
Welcome great community! I am always excited to have the chance to speak directly to YOU!
Today let's get right into it. My time has been split between health focused and public speaking training. I know you didn't know yet, I am practicing for my TEDx speech in August 2016. Yes, I am eagerly working on this and when I can I will upload the title and speech. It is incredible. I feel the energy already.
When you are developing your goals and build up to the action plan now you are pursuing your goals, you have a tendency to work hard on Day 1 and by Day 5 you have lost sight of the goal that you were pursuing because day to day obstacles have jumped in your way. You have the belief that it is supposed to be easy like Oprah says, "the flow of life is where your purpose resides." That is contextually correct yet, you have to fight through the journey of discovery in order to feel the "flow" and perceived less resistance and then it will seem easy for you to follow your dreams and goals. So on Day 2 you had some struggles, on Day 3 you had some challenges and by Day 4 you allowed your subconscious (mind) - the seat of the paradigm - the self discipline that says "I can do this" start to murmur "I don't know about this." And by Day 5 you have this comfortable feeling in your being with a sense of failure in your heart. You ask yourself, "what happened?"
Now, let's say you do it on Principle vs Goals. You set your goal and if you don't reach it -- You fail to tap into your Will or burning desire to succeed. Your focus goes wherever the wind blows yet, when you start this journey on Principal your subconscious has locked in the support mechanism that will drive you to unstoppable activity. How do you obtain the desire, momentum and Do Not Quit attitude??? By Exercising Your Will on your emotions. You must train yourself to impose your will on the doubts, distractions, rejections, being too tired, sleepy, fatigue, ignorance, obstacles, roadblocks, haters, dream-stealers, fakers and anything or anybody that will step in your way to victory. YOU have to continue and repeat this all of the time... "I CAN, I WILL, I MUST!"
Start on Principal and Stay on Principal. It's not about YOU, It's BIGGER than YOU!
