Goal Setting: A Plan of Action or Get Off the Couch

Two monks were arguing about the temple flag. One said the flag
moved, the other said the wind moved. Master Eno overheard them
and said, "It is neither the wind nor the flag, but your mind
that moves." The monks were speechless.

Goal Setting a plan of action or
Get off the Couch
by Judi Singleton

We have talked a lot in the last weeks about having conversations
with yourself. We talked about overall goal setting and what it
takes. This week I would like to talk about desire, passion,
making that goal the number one thing in your life. It's what
keeps people working all hours, up early, late to bed. This kind
of desire starts in the mind. It is what spurred great atheletes.
It was the making of all great heros.

The mind forms paths in the brain, and like any well used path it
becomes a habit to go that way. We go to work the same way each
day without thinking about it. Well this is how our mind works.
We can put a habit to use; it puts our desires on autopilot.
Thoughts are also like that. If we think them over and over soon
we move toward the action that is being thought.

Now, how do we intensify desire by listing details? Writing
down the details, the small steps that it takes each day to
accomplish where you are going. Though they may seem
insignificant at the time, repeated small steps, baby steps is
how you are going to intensify the desire to get where you are

Next we are going to take action. Write down the details of where
you are going and then write 20 or 30 benefits of going there.
This will make your goal unstoppable. Try this right now. Have
you set a goal for your business to make X dollars this month?
Write a huge list -- the more you write and think about it, the
more your mind will come up with, and this strenghtens your
desire. Write about wanting more money, not for the money sake
for that would be boring and mundane. Write a list of all the
things you can do with the money. What kind of time will having
this new money give you? How will you spend the time? The
benefits to your family and loved ones. This is the first step
to obtaining your goals and desires.

By creating intense desire you can realize the impossible dream.
