Have you ever been chatting with someone who has a big heart, wants to help, listens to you, shares with you and at the end, you still know, “They didn’t get it?” That happens quite often because sometimes we are on our program and get stuck – and then we don’t know what to say or how to say something to get us into motion again.
If you want to clear up the conversation, check yourself first! Have you gotten the proper amount of rest or sleep? Have you eaten a meal? Do you feel ill or frustrated about something else and is it impacting this moment/conversation or what you are trying to do? Do you even know what you want or are trying to accomplish? All of these questions play a role – even if they seem simple or unimportant.
Sometimes people need to answer the question and then shut up. Sometimes people need to listen better and then speak up. Sometimes people need to breathe, regroup and re-enter the conversation at another time. Sometimes you must simply choose what’s next.
Back to the guy you’re trying to talk to; if you don’t know where you are, it’s difficult to get to where you want to go and sometimes the other person may see more for you than you can see for yourself. Or, sometimes the vision is different...if you are on the 27th floor your view is different than if the other person is on the 1st floor. Agree to meet somewhere in the middle and you will have a good starting point.
It may seem simple but it’s not if you are in the clouds and it’s a rainy, stormy day or if there’s 12 feet of snow and you can’t open the door. Remember that, and keep it going.
3 Steps to Achieving Goals for the New Year
1. Envision Your Goal
2. Acknowledge the Obstacles
3. Use A Road Map
Let’s Go Deeper -
1. Envision Your Goal - See yourself experiencing it, living it, breathing it and know what the results would look and feel like. Make it come alive in your mind so that you will be empowered to bring it into reality.
2. Acknowledge the Obstacles - What's in your way? Your thoughts, feelings, habits, finances, a person or situation? If you know these things they will have less power over you.
3. Use A Road Map - When you start a trip, you need to know where you are starting and where you are ending. This is the same with your goals. You need a plan and strategy and to know the tools that it will take to get you there. Different thoughts, a new environment, new habits, another job, new relationships or working with someone to help you get there - a coach, trainer or leadership for times when it gets tough or you feel unsure.
There are people in this world waiting on you. You are brilliant. #Be Inspired
