Visualize. Feel It In Your Mind.
Goals. People always say to cross goals off your list once you achieve something. I say, don’t cross it off until you are completely and utterly over achieving your goal. Not “over achieving” like the real definition, “to perform better or achieve more success than expected.” But rather, moving on. Over it. Like my definition, “you’re completely ready to move on and no longer interested. Over it.” Have you crossed anything off your list? I was about to but realized, I’m just beginning!
Last week, one of my goals became a reality. One of many goals was to become a contributing writer to a business I think of highly and follow regularly such as The Nextwomen Magazine as this award winning online magazine offers several opportunities such as helping women entreprenuers, like myself, grow and flourish, which is an absolute awesome highlight to any woman entrepreneur. I wanted to take this time to share with artists struggling to meet their goals that, you will meet it. Whatever you have your eye on, you will get there. Finally, after years of working and feeling like the world was never on my side, getting rejected or told “maybe next time”, I accomplished my goal seen here. Am I ready to cross it off my list? Not entirely as I just started and I certainly am not ready for this to end. Artist Community, please just set aside a few minutes a day to visualize, feel, taste and understand what goal you want to accomplish. You will be amazed by the outcome, regardless of how long it may take you – you will be glad you never crossed it off your list. And one last thing, make sure to always say thank you. Regardless if nobody helped you acheive your goal or not, it’s always polite. Remember, ” your business and results are a reflection of you. Your business and results will grow in direct proportion to your own growth.” ~ James A. Ray
“If you’re trying to be miserable, it’s important you don’t have any goals. No school goals, personal goals, family goals. Your only objective each day should be to inhale and exhale for sixteen hours before you go to bed again. Don’t read anything informative, don’t listen to anything useful, don’t do anything productive. If you start achieving goals, you might start to feel a sense of excitement, then you might want to set another goal, and then your miserable mornings are through. To maintain your misery, the idea of crossing off your goals should never cross your mind.” ~ John Bytheway
