The Next Steps Towards Your Life Goal!

Step One – Clarify  Your Life Goal

  • Write it down in one or two sentences
  • Separate out the means to the goal from the goal itself
    • A friend said to me that if an Angel gave her one wish,
      • she would ask for ‘Money’!
      • “What will you do with it?” I asked.
        • “I will open and orphanage,
          • something I have always wanted to do!”
          • “That’s your life goal, money is only the means to it!”
            • I said.

Step Two – Find Out All You Can About Your Life Goal

  • List everything you know about it
  • Ask people about it
    • Talk to those who are already in the industry/occupation/career etc.
    • Learn as much as you can from those who are already in the activity
      • Do an internship
      • Get a coach if possible
  • Read about it
    • The internet is your friend – you can find a lot of things there
    • Take notes

    • One season: Summer, Fall, Winter, or Spring (Dry Season or Rainy Season)
  • Medium Term Objectives

  • Start each day with these reminders:
    • “What little thing will I do today towards my Life Goal?”
      • That’s mine
    • “A Journey of a thousand miles starts with one step”
      • Lao Tzu

How to Determine Your Life Goal!

Imagine you had a visit from an Angel and he says to you,

  • “I give you One Wish, one request,
    • and it WILL be granted!
    • Ask whatever you will, but
    • there are no do-overs,
      • you only get one chance at it!”
    • What will you ask for?

When I was growing up, reading fairy tales where this happens

  • (sometimes the main character gets one/two/three wishes),
  • I would twist myself into knots trying to figure out,
    • “If that was me what will I choose, what will I ask?”
      • Will I ask for money, Power, looks, fame, friends, mom’s health…?

The question is still valid for adults; your answer will  reveal

  • Your priorities
  • Your greatest limitation
  • Your greatest obstacle
  • Your greatest desire
  • Your character
  • Where you want to be
  • Your dream life,
    • something that relates to your Life Goal!

So take the time and try to answer that question:

  • What is your single most important (above all else) wish right now?
  • Write down your answer.
    • Then start planning your life around that answer.
    • Fairy tales are just that: Tales!
    • But God working through you can make your dreams come true

Two types of ‘miracles’!

  • Explosive, one of kind,  and all at once miracle!
    • (these are statistically very rare).
    • The more likely one is,
  • Slow, over time, underlying energy, focus, invincible, invisible,
    • unrelenting divine guidance;
    • unplanned and unexpected favor, opportunities, contacts,
    • as you seemingly move by your own planning, and resourcefulness
      • towards your Goal.
