Seizing 2010 – Opening the Doors to Your Goals
Opening the Doors to Your Goals
“Every wall is a door.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
As a new year starts I often spend some time reviewing the year that’s passed. I look at my goals of that year to celebrate all that I have achieved and to question where the gaps in the goals that are still pending were. After many years of doing this, I am sure of 2 things: Focus and commitment are key to achieving my goals.
If you let it, LIFE will always find ways to keep you busy, unfortunately not always on the the actions that will lead you to accomplish your goals. Every day you need to focus on the actions that lead you down the right path. There will always be distractions and some of them will be very necessary but not all of them and if you search deeply enough you’ll know how to distinguish which distractions need your attention and when.
Focus is all about choosing the right door to walk through. LIFE will always present challenges which will appear as a wall that blocks you, but each and every wall is an opportunity. All you need to do is find the right door to walk through.
The next step is commitment; it’s going through the right door at the right time everyday. It is the resolve of doing the small actions every day that lead you in the direction that you want to go. The most important thing to remember is that commitment needs to be strongest in the moments that “you just don’t feel like it”. You know what I am talking about, those times when you feel like it can wait until tomorrow. As soon as you hear that voice that’s a signal to let you know that your commitment level needs to be at its highest level.
Make 2010 your year to open the right door!
