Goal Setting: The Power of Purpose

Do you ever have one of these attitudes regarding your goals?

"I have too many problems."

"I'm too old."

"I'd rather stay in bed."

"Whatever made me think I could do that?"

"I'm sick of the whole thing."

"I can't do it."

"I'll do it some other time."

"I don't have enough energy to do it."

"I didn't realize it would be this difficult."

"It seems too hard for me to do."

"I probably can't do it since most people can't."

Those who get into a "can't" mode are on the road to failure. "I can't do the project." "I can't pay my bills." "I can't succeed."

Almost all government regulations concentrate on things you cannot do. "You can't park there." "You can't keep that money." "Unless you follow these regulations, you can't . . . ." Pick up any law and notice how often the words "Prohibit," "Forbidden" and "Disallowed" occur while words like "Encouraged," "Allowed" and "Recommended" are absent.

Some employers like to act like governments and stop things. "You can't leave early." "You can't have more authority." "You can't do things your own way."

Businesses do it to customers. "We can't see you without an appointment." "I can't give you a discount if you pay in full." "Sorry, we cannot help you."

The real damage occurs when you stop yourself. "I can't handle more work." "I can't earn more money." "I can't delegate."

Have You Been Stopped?
