7 Secrets To High Performance Thinking
Part 4 - Goal Setting
So far we've discussed relaxation,
The fourth of our 7 secrets is goal setting.
Goal setting is actually an extension of our survival mechanism.
All living things have survival mechanism.
From the tree whose leaves turn toward the sky before a rain
to the birds who fly to warmer climates during the winter.
But as men and women we have an advantage. Plants, animals
and insects have no control over the direction their lives
take. It's preset for the survival of their species.
We on the other hand have the ability to take part in the
shaping of our destinies. We can choose our path.
Our ability to think of the future and set goals gives us
the ability to be the captains of our fates and the shapers
of our destiny.
Sadly most of us tend to shrug off the power of setting goals
and our lives end up being tossed to and fro like a ship in
Our high powered minds are programmed to help us achieve success,
but we give it no direction.
We ride around with this high performance engine between our
ears, and never take off the emergency brake.
If you truly want to become a high performance thinker, you
should set goals that get you excited. Your goals should be
big enough to motivate you, while still being believable.
Don't mistake daydreams for goals.
Don't mistake what will make others happy, for a goal that
will get you excited.
It has to be your goal.
Start setting believable, achievable goals. Set a time limit
on accomplishing your goals and set higher goals each time
an old goal has been achieved.
Set up a reward system for achieving your goals on time.
Make reaching your goals a game. A treasure hunt.
If you've got time to root for your favorite sports team,
I'm sure you have time to start rooting for you.
Setting and achieving your goals is the real Super Bowl.
Make yourself the MVP of your life.
