We all hate making goals due to the fact that when we do not achieve these goals, we are left feeling disappointed in ourselves. But without goals, you are just a leaf, fallen from a tree, going God knows where!! You can get caught up in anything and be lost forever…
You have no influence on what will happen in your future or where you will end up. You might get lucky and end up somewhere nice and comfy. It may be close to a pond somewhere, since you are leaf, you will be well off. But we all know that luck, as much as we talk about it, is rarely there when you need it. You only ”get lucky” in small unnecessary things. The important, life changing moments have nothing to do luck.
The important things require you to take action. To get off your lazy or scared arse and make the effort.
Make some goals! I guarantee you will not complete most of them. But if you complete that one, regardless of how small it is, you will feel significantly better than you would if you just allowed yourself to drift in the world. It might be fun, not having a plan. And it is a good thing to do it, sometimes. You need something to hold on to in this crazy world.
Goals will keep you going,even when you feel like giving up.
So why not try it. Start small. Keep at it. Even when you fail, don’t give up. Rome wasn’t built in a day after all! 🙂
I am taking my advice and hopefully by the end of the next month, I will have my second baby…my guitar I mean :). And it’s that goal that will help me wake up and go to WORK everyday, even when I do not feel like it!
