Set a Bigger Goal

Recently, I was struggling to achieve a specific goal I had been working on for a long time. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what was wrong. I blamed myself – too lazy, not committed, missing something to carry things through to the finish.

While my self-assessment may have been accurate, it wasn’t the whole story. I soon realized that my goal was too tiny and didn’t inspire me. So I made my goal bigger – not impossible, but enough of a stretch to drive me ahead.

Updates to follow.

Have a great day,

The Courage Continuum

I speak to people who tell me they lack the courage to pursue a goal or dream. Yet, they have taken courageous action in other areas of their lives. What we often both conclude it that it’s not really “missing” courage, but taking on too much, too soon.

Once they are able to take a tiny step that takes courage, they make progress toward their goal. In the end, they become a person who sets and achieves even bigger goals.

Just start with one tiny absolutely doable step and you will expand your courage, capacity, and confidence.

Divisiveness Starts From Within

I hear again and again: that the world is divisive. Some people believe that this serious discord is caused by our institutions and if only they would change, the world would be better. At some level, those individuals are right – and it’s far from the whole story.

Organizations are made up of people, so what if each of us looks at any “disunity” inside our own heart? I have seen when the change emanates from within, the environment changes for the better.

Do it as an experiment.

Warmly,

Your Success Threshold

Many people don’t get the traction they want on their goals. Why is that, you may wonder? I believe that they take on too much and don’t have the willpower to go the distance.

So what is the solution? Know why you have chosen the goal and what action could you take that is super easy – absolutely doable! Then you will build momentum and success become a habit.

Warmly,

You Are Better Than You Know

Each of us has an opinion of ourselves. For some it’s inflated, yet most actually discount their talents, skills, and abilities.

While I don’t recommend that you pretend to be more that you are, just be accurate. Being accurate requires that you fully share the precious value that you are. We then all benefit.

Have a great day,

Goals, Concentration, and Success

I find it easy to create new goals and much harder to concentrate on one goal at a time. Yet, I know that focus will actually accelerate my success and open up the space to pursue another exciting goal.

The time, effort, and concentration I dedicate to a goal gives me more than a single accomplishment. There is an even greater benefit: it is who I become in the process of achieving the goal. I gain capacity, courage, and confidence for what’s next.

Have a great day,
Anita
