What Your Goals Say About You

Show me your goals and I'll get a pretty good picture of where you're headed.  And if your goals are written, your odds of success increase dramatically.  Here are three things your goals say about you:
  1. You desire to live your life with purpose.
  2. You have found the reason(s) why you're here.
  3. You are confident about the direction you're headed.
Take a few minutes today and ask yourself this question, "Where do I want to be in five years?"

Be specific.  Paint a detailed picture of your life, five years from today.  Write everything down and put it in an envelope.  Put today's date on the outside of the envelope.  Put it somewhere where you will find it in five years.  You don't have to seal it.  You are free to look at your goals as often as you wish.  The surprising thing about this exercise is that you will be much better off in five years even if you don't look at your list until five years from today.  The reason for this is that your subconscious remembers everything you write down.  Your brain has a template to follow.  And you will join an elite group of people who get things done.

Would you like to share your answer to the question in the comments section below?  I would love to hear from you.
