Would you think I was nuts if I told you that you always achieve your goals?
It sounds crazy but it’s true. But like most things it depends on how you think about it.
Have you ever set a goal? A big hairy audacious goal like you’re supposed to. And started to work towards it.
But then you got ill. Or there was a bereavement in the family. Or you had to put in more hours at work.
You start to think that maybe that goal was a bit too audacious. Is it even possible? What if I got it. Would it bring more problems?
Before you know it, you are sending your subconscious the signal to lower your sights.
You don’t fail at your goal of making $100K a year. You succeed at your new goal of making $20K a year. Your ‘settle for’ goal.
What if you had stuck to the original goal and decided to do whatever it takes to get it? That is what successful people do.
Getting what you want is inevitable. You just have to internalise that decision to never give up.
The alternative is to talk yourself out of your dreams with lies like:
1.“I don’t know where to start.”
How many stories have you heard of people who began with nothing and became multi-millionaires?
They didn’t know where to start. They would probably be able to do it better now. But back then they just started. They took the first step.
Have you ever heard “perfect is the enemy of good”? This is exactly what that means.
If you wait until you have the perfect plan, you’ll miss hundreds of good plans that could have got you what you wanted.
If you want to see your dreams made real, you’ve got to stop telling yourself you don’t know where to start.
2. “What If I fail”
Failure is also inevitable. But it’s not the end unless you decide it is. Looked at in the right way it is just a signpost.
We already said that you can never begin with a perfect plan. You have to test and adjust.
Failure is a clue to what you need to adjust.
Don’t take failure personally. It doesn’t mean something’s wrong with you. You just found a way to make a better plan.
3. “It’s Not My Fault”
There is no fault or blame. There is only responsibility. If you take responsibility for what happens, you also take control.
If something doesn’t go the way you would have liked, you deal with it and you move on.
If you blame other people or the circumstances you are handing over future to luck.
You might as well go and buy a lottery ticket.
There are many more of these mental traps waiting to sabotage your success and make sure that you are always settling for less.
Most of those self made millionaires had one thing in common. They didn’t allow themselves to indulge in that kind of thinking.
In fact they worked very hard to eliminate it and program themselves for success.

This is an idea that came at the right time for me. We don’t fail. We just succeed at a lower level than we originally aimed for.

We all know this but it is a tough one. When the plan fails, it was the plan that failed. Not you! Keep the goal and change the plan.
