Setting Personal Goals:  Be Grateful Every Day

Setting Personal Goals: Be Grateful Every Day

Achieving your goals is not a foregone conclusion. There will be surprises along the way - both ‘good’ and ‘bad’. And even the ‘bad’ can be ‘good’ if you can learn something from them. You’ll need motivation - and a positive attitude – to keep moving forward, step by step. And nothing will help you to keep a positive attitude like being grateful every day! Be grateful for that ‘good’ thing that happened to you…and for that ‘bad’ thing too – provided you took away a good lesion from it and ‘turned the lemon into lemonade’!

This step is where you begin to set your goals – from a place where you have clearly identified what you want and where you have reconciled with your past. If you’re lacking in that clarity, go back and write down what you think you want – in all domains of your life. And if you still feel a strong sense of cynicism, go back and examine the potential beliefs that are sure to sabotage you…and replace them with new beliefs that to you are liberating.

In order to liberate yourself from those doubts…and eliminate the frustration from trying the same thing yet again with eroded confidence…you need to find a way to put the past in the past.
