You Get What You Truly Intend To Get

Tracy Twyman - TransitionsMost people have goals.

A lot even have them written down.

However, few can remember them without re-reading them, and even fewer take actions every day to ensure they achieve them.

I used to think it was sufficient to make a decision that (X) was going to happen. A sort of, actually instead of just saying how great it would be to go back to England, we will go in September.

I thought about it like that because when I made a decision like the one in the example above, I would take all the steps necessary to make it happen.

But lately I have realised just how many of the decisions we make die because we lack the determination to overcome our fears and take the actions we know need to take.

So what is the solution?

That will vary depending on what it is we want and what our particular stumbling blocks are. However, it is often said no one does it by themselves. Therefore, a good starting point is to

  • List the major steps needed to get from where we are to where we want to be;

  • Break each of those steps down into the actions required to complete that step; and then

  • Highlight any actions we know we will put off unless we have some form of support

Then what?

If you aren’t confident about what action is required, identify someone you can talk to about what is involved and what they suggest you do. Then ask them to help you. (If you don’t know someone, someone you know will probably know someone, and people are usually only too happy to help.)

From there, each time you complete an action review if your list is still right. If it is, continue. If it isn’t, repeat the above process from the start so you continue to move towards the outcome you want.

Will it be scary?

Very likely, otherwise you would already have done it. But remember you don’t need to do it by yourself. Someone will help you.

Will it be easy?

Probably not, especially if your decision is a major change from business as usual. But breaking it down into bite sized pieces makes it possible.

Will it be worth it?

Absolutely. I guarantee it. It will be like winning your own personal lottery because as Jim Rohn said “For every disciplined effort there is MULTIPLE reward”.

So take 5 minutes and ask yourself whether you are on track to achieve what you say you want.

If you are, well done. Give yourself a pat on the back.

If not, I suggest you use the remainder of the 5 minutes to ask yourself if you really want it and if the answer is yes, start thinking about who can help you get back on track so you can have it.
