I was never one to set goals. I mean… I suppose I did to some extent, but it was never intentional.
That’s not the way to go. I’m going to tell you why.
Without a goal set at the beginning, situations just seem to happen and you’re unable to make sense of them until afterwards and the sense you make of them will be wrong.
The value of setting a goal lies in the fact that the situations that take place prior to its achievement will be perceived as a means to its accomplishment.
More specifically, you give order to the chaos in your life by giving a predetermined meaning to what you declare as your goal.
Do you think it’s a coincidence that Muhammad Ali thought he was the greatest before he became the greatest? That Michael Jackson carried around handwritten reminders that he was going to create the best selling record of all time prior to recording Thriller? That Jim Carrey wrote himself a check for $20 million dollars just prior to his filming Ace Ventura?
Or… do you think they may have knew something about their minds that you don’t know about yours???
