For some reason we have this mindset that goals are designed for us to achieve them. But what if the greatest thing about goals did not come from completing them?
“You want to set a goal that is big enough that in the process of achieving it you become someone worth becoming.” ― Jim Rohn
Isn’t the greatest result from the goal setting process becoming a better version of ourselves? The new creation we become as we work on achieving each goal we set before ourselves? For example, almost everyone wants more money.
What if you set a goal to make six figures next year?
You have to change the person you are to become the person that earns six figures. You would have to become a better person to earn 500k. Therefore, what if you set your financial goal for $500,000? Yes, one half of a million dollars! On the way to half a million dollars, you would have to become a $100,000 dollar person. I want to encourage you to set ridiculously and crazy high goals.
“If you set your goals ridiculously high and it’s a failure, you will fail above everyone else’s success.” ― James Cameron
For some reason, I believe that if you are truly committed and you show up each and every day to work on your #1 goal you would achieve a minimum of 20% of it. If you set your sights on an income of $500,000 then I would expect you to end up with over $100,000 in income. Remember, you have to show up and work consistently on this goal, but you would end up earning between 100k to 500k.
