It might help to set growth goals for 2015 when you realize that you are great at it. Whether you have made a conscious decision to set and reach goals or if it is an unconscious act, a little reflection will help you realize that you set and achieve goals on a regular basis. Most goals throughout the day are small such as deciding what you will have for dinner, not necessarily life changing. Others are of great importance and will have a big impact on your future. Both have similar patterns and makeup. If you’ve ever decided you wanted spaghetti and meatballs for dinner and took the necessary steps to make it happen, then you can set and achieve major life goals. Spaghetti and meatballs is just more common and easier to achieve, major life goals are made of the same process but will take more time.
From Vague To Specific
Your spaghetti and meatballs dinner started with a decision, a decision that was very specific. It may have begun with a more vague decision, like, “I’m hungry for Italian food”. A vague goal will help move you in the right direction but at some point, you had to get specific. This is something you do every day on some level. To live your potential you simply take this ability and apply it on a much greater level. You wanted Italian, and then you got more specific, spaghetti. Your thought process kicked into high gear; do you need to go by the grocery store to pick up supplies? When will you be able to do this? How much will it cost? Am I willing to take the time to cook? Before you know it, you had a great spaghetti dinner!
The process of going from vague to specific is the process of clarity and focus and is the start to every successful goal. Your goals for 2015 are bigger and more complex than just having spaghetti for dinner this evening, but be encouraged, the process is the same. You have proved you can set a goal, make it specific and see it through, now you just need to do it on a greater level, a life transforming level. Apply the skills that you use every day to set goals for 2015 that will unleash your potential and help you live life as the masterpiece God created you to be.
