How Goal-Setting Actually Works

Today I wanna talk to you about: How Goal-Setting Actually Works

But first…let me share a quote with you:

“Man is a goal-seeking animal. His life only has meaning if he is reaching out and striving for his goals.”-Aristotle

You only see and experience what you look for. If you don’t know what to look for, you certainly won’t get it. By our very nature, we are goal-seeking creatures.

Our brain is always trying to align our outer world with what we’re seeing and expecting in our inner world. So when you instruct your brain to look for the things you want, you’ll begin to see them.

In fact, the object of your desire has probably always existed around you, but your mind and eyes weren’t open to “seeing” it.

When you define your goals, you give your brain something new to look for and focus on.

It’s as if you’re giving your mind a new set of eyes from which to see all the people, circumstances, conversations, resources, ideas, and creativity surrounding you.

With this new perspective (an inner itinerary if you will), your mind proceeds to match up on the outside what you want most on the inside – your goal.

It’s that simple.

After you have clearly defined your goals, the way you experience the world and draw ideas, people, and opportunities into your life is profound.

2 Questions:

No. 1: What are goals that are not written down? Nothing but good intentions!

No. 2: What stands between you and your goals? Your behavior!

To Your Success!

  1. I have heard people saying they are worried that if they set a goal too strong they will not see opportunities. I think another point is that you can just make it your goal to explore different things! Goals do not have to be so limiting! Great post 🙂
