Achieving your most precious goal

achieving-your-goals1Today I want you to think about what it would take to work on your most precious goal.

Your "precious goal" is the one goal that is your burning desire. This is the goal that you have always wanted to complete, but have not been able to do so as of today. This goal wakes you up in the morning and this is the goal that you think of completing before you go to sleep at night.

What is the first thing that you need to do to make this goal a reality? This is where you must start in order for it to manifest. If you never accomplish this, you will always wonder how it would feel to have this goal completed.

I once worked with someone who wanted so badly to complete her education but always seemed to have some other things on her plate that required her time or money. She was a single mother of four who worked hard to put her children through school and made sure that their education was paid for without them having to take out any student loans (All of her children are college graduates). She often talked about going back to school and completing what she started, but she was never able to do so. She once said that she thinks about this goal every single day of her life. She worked hard for her children and had no regrets, but there was always something inside of her that wished she could walk across a stage and receive her college degree. I can remember her coming to work so excited one morning saying that she had just registered for school and that her children joined together and paid her tuition. She was so excited that she couldn't hold back her tears. I was excited for her because I knew how much this meant to her. She was on her way to complete her most "precious goal."

So, today as you read this, I want you to think about achieving that one goal that you never thought you could achieve. There is something inside of you that won't let you rest until this goal is completed. It has been planted inside of you and you must see it through. Don't give up and don't stop working at it. Sometimes our most "precious goals" are those goals that won't happen overnight. They take time, patience and hard work. They also take determination and a belief that the impossible can be possible. If you believe that you can achieve your goals, then you will achieve your goals.

And as always remember, stay focused, stay determined and keep striving for greatness.
