Lou Tice and the Pacific Institute

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Real Estate and Gas Stations America

Lou Tice and I go back 30 plus years…and he is always good and right on target. Goal setting is a big part of United Way, as we raise funds for over 90 programs in the northern part of California…here is his recent piece on goals:

If you’re going to get what you want in life, it is only common sense that first you have to know what you want. Even beyond that, it is absolutely essential that you take your desires seriously enough to goal-set to achieve them.

I am convinced that the reason most people fail to achieve their goals in life is that they never really set them in the first place. Most people spend more time planning a wedding or a vacation than they do planning their lives. And by failing to plan, they are actually planning to fail, by default.

You see, your mind is like the homing system in a torpedo or an automatic pilot. Once you clearly and specifically commit to a target, your mind uses negative and positive feedback from your environment, including your internal environment, to adjust your behavior.

But if you program your mind with vague desires, nonspecific goals, or fuzzy ideas, the feedback will be meaningless. For example, if you goal-set for a better standard of living, how will you know when you have achieved it? Any improvement at all will be something better. But if you have a highly specific target, such as doubling your income, you will always know when you are on track and exactly how far you have left to go at any given moment.

Remember, you have the power to achieve whatever you want in life, and commitment to specific goals is the surest way I know to tap into that power.
