our mindset - Goals or Results?

Tuesday is here and what have you done this week to help meet your goals? You see, day after day if you aren't striving for greatness, someone else is. I'm not saying obsess over results. I'm asking, what are your goals?

I believe I had said or wrote in a post about writing goals down to help them become a reality. This is what has helped me in my life. I always set goals. Heres the thing, I want this post to open your eyes like it has opened mine. I've been finding that there are two different types of people when it comes to the end game. There are goal oriented people and there are result oriented people. Which are you?

What is a goal? By definition a goal is the object of a person's ambition or effort; an aim or desired result. Synonyms would be objective, aim, end, target, design, intention, intent, plan, and purpose. If you are a goal oriented person then that means that you are willing to take the time and embrace the process. Your end game would be the goal but you are willing to put the time in. Being a goal oriented person will keep you positive, which is also very important for the karma that you will receive. Your energy believe it or not plays a very important role on your life. Goal oriented people live the day by day knowing that there is a purpose for everything that they do. They learn to solve problems that arise throughout the journey and take help from people who may have advice. When you set your goals they have realistic timelines that you can meet with hard work and dedication. This is a goal oriented person.

What is a result? By definition a result is a consequence, effect, or outcome of something. Synonyms would be consequence, outcome, product, upshot, sequel, effect, reaction, repercussion, ramification, conclusion, culmination. Already see where I'm going with this. Very negative. If you are focused on results then that creates a sense of anxiety, fear, and defeat when it shouldn't be welcomed at all. People who are result oriented want shortcuts. Ever heard of get rich schemes, perfect for the result oriented person. Being this way can also hurt your need to network. Whats in it for me if I talk to you, is something that one might think. Most result oriented people don't need help because they know who they need to talk to and what they need to do to make it happen.....and fast.

So I'll ask again, which one are you? I feel that I have been both at different times in my life. Now at this point of my life I am by far a goal oriented person. I love this process and how far the journey has come. Do i get down on myself sometimes, well yeah, I'm human so that is something that comes with the territory. To me results and goal oriented people are not too different and sometimes the lines can blur. Maybe that is because I have not perfected being the goal oriented person. I would love to be. This is something that I work on constantly. Slow down, it doesn't have to be a race, enjoy the ride. Network with everyone because it is always great to meet new people and if someone is an asshole, no matter who they are stay away from their negativity. It will only bring you unwarranted drama.

I'm sure many of you can use this toward any career or life choice that you have. NO MORE DRAMA! Try to not be so negative and get through the darkness until you can see the light. Like I said earlier, energy is so important and I always TRY to bring the best energy. Positive vibrations are the best ones to give out to the world, that way they can come back to you. Thursday I can write a little more about that because the struggle to stay positive is just that, a struggle and crucial to the quality of the life that you can have.

Thanks again for the support and I hope that you enjoy this blog. I see it as a diary entry but hopefully you can take something away from it. Thanks!
