170516 "The Three P's For Success"

Achieving Goals....

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.  --Thomas Jefferson

...or for you that prefer a more philosophical translation...

A desire presupposes the possibility of action to achieve it; action presupposes a goal which is worth achieving.   --Ayn Rand

Irregardless of who says it or how it is done, achieving your goals takes dedication and consciousness. I wrote over the winter about my THREE rules of Achieving that which you deem worthy.

  1. Define your Principles. How you act as you go about your day is a brand outline of what your principles are. What do you hold dear? Are there certain traits that you hold onto as a person which make you feel unique? What drives you to make the life decisions that you have to make daily? When you can answer these questions, you are on your way to truly understanding yourself and once step closer to achieving your goals.
  2. Define Your Purpose. Whatever is worth achieving must mean something to you right? Well this could be tied to your Purpose in Life. While some might find their true purpose sooner rather than later, there is a good possibility that what makes you excited and driven is pointing you towards your Purpose.. A big thing that you must understand, your Purpose does not have to be a grandeous idea but rather a fulfillment of your soul. For some that may mean becoming a CrossFit coach and for others it may be to become a Landscape Contractor. Purpose is all about you and what makes you happy. When you identify that, Goals become much easier to attain!!
  3. Perseverance. Consciousness is the key when you have a goal in mind. There are some coaches that make athletes sit in front of game tapes a few times per day just to keep their heads in the game. For Some they need to create a mantra to be repeated in order to keep the mind focused. Whatever you may use to keep yourself on track, Perseverance will assuredly help you attain any goal worth going after. If you don't know it, Perseverance is also one hellova character trait! When you can maintain focus on goals you become more aware of the world around you which makes you a better community member, father, mother, husband, wife... whatever.

The three P's for success. Simple and effective. Start right now to identify, define and strive for what you feel is important. Get after it!
