Nate’s Monday Morning Message
Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…this week and every week we have the opportunity to build the life that WE want. You need to become very clear on what it is that you wish to accomplish in life. Focus on the big picture items – Relationships, Business, Health, Spirituality, Money, etc. You need to become clear on where you want to be and how you want to live your life and then you can dig deeper into the specifics.
Picture the destination and what it will be like and then you can set the road-map to success. Things will change along the way and roadblocks will appear. The best part of your journey is that you can decide what to do along the way. This is your journey and YOU need to be responsible for it. Once you come to this realization you will understand that all of the roadblocks and challenges are just things to get through. What is it you want to accomplish? Let’s make it a great week!
On the best sunny day, the most powerful magnifying glass will not light paper if you keep moving the glass. But if you focus and hold it, the paper will light up. That is the power of concentration.
A man was traveling and stopped at an intersection. He asked an elderly man, “Where does this road take me?” The elderly person asked, “Where do you want to go?” The man replied, “I don’t know.” The elderly person said,” Then take any road. What difference does it make?”
How true. When we don’t know where we are going, any road will take us there.
Suppose you have all the football eleven players, enthusiastically ready to play the game, all charged up, and then someone took the goal post away. What would happen to the game? There is nothing left. How do you keep score? How do you know you have arrived?
Enthusiasm without direction is like wildfire and leads to frustration. Goals give a sense of direction. Would you sit in a train or a plane without knowing where it was going? The obvious answer is no.
Then why do people go through life without having any goals?
WORDS OF INSPIRATION
“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.” Tony Robbins
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” – Pele
“It’s not an accident that musicians become musicians and engineers become engineers: it’s what they’re born to do. If you can tune into your purpose and really align with it, setting goals so that your vision is an expression of that purpose, then life flows much more easily.” – Jack Canfield
“Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” – Napoleon Hill
