I have been thinking a lot about my goals related to Inspiration for Success as the whole team doesn’t support the financial goals that we have set (1) and proposed (2). So I just encountered this quote:
“Set a goal to achieve something that is so big, so exhilarating that it excites you and scares you at the same time. It must be a goal that is so appealing, so much in line with your spiritual core, that you can’t get it out of your mind. If you do not get chills when you set a goal, your not setting big enough goals.” – Bob Proctor.
And it seems that’s what it’s all about, I mean, it just sounded that the team members were too scared (‘get the chills’) to set the goals and stick with them. So today I kind of (?!) decided to stick with the two financial goals that we have set for inspiration for Success for this period:
- Earn or receive one hundred US dollars on or before October 22, 2013 by inspiring people for success.
- Earn or receive one million dollars for each of the team members on or before October 19, 2014 by inspiring people for success.
And you may want to know that especially the first goal chilled me out as for me the timing was so short and the website didn’t make the progress as i wanted and expected, in content as well as traffic. And the second goal was already set for me, even for October this year, so that was not such a big deal to me.
And you know why I want to stick to those goals? Because the last few days I realized that I am fully off track related to the teachings of Napoleon Hill and his book Think and Grow Rich. And I realized I’m the leader, that I need to set the goals, that I need to lead the way. And I don’t. So that’s why things are not moving.
Basically the movie Star Trek Into Darkness I was watching yesterday made me think about those things, that a leader is alone and needs to make his own decisions and cannot always do what his team members advise him. At least that’s what I saw Captain James T. Kirk do. And it wasn’t always easy for him and it wasn’t always fun, but it seemed the type of thing a real leader should do, what is expected from a real leader.
So well, better get to work and make those goals come true.
And one more thing I notice more and more in movies: the (mostly famous) actors and the team creating movies as of the moment, at least the big movies in the cinema’s, all seem to have some kind of (deep) message and all are created very, very professional. So yes, going all the way, going the extra mile seems to be the thing needed to be successful. And it’s worth it, just doing things good, like if you do something worth doing, then better do it well, better overdo it.
And someone else to thank today, as she listened to me and gave some very good suggestions and advice. But not sure if I can mention her name her for privacy reasons, so better not now, but I’ll ask her.
