This Week's Goal to turn Passions & Dreams into Reality

Another Great Share from my friend, Mark Ford @ www.ffgroupconsulting.com

?The one thing that separates winners from losers is that winners take action.?- Tony Robbins
This Week's Goal:

You can only turn your passions and dreams into reality by setting and reaching your goals. Decide what you want, what you're going to do to get it, write it down and start doing it! Don't take it lightly, live your life "on purpose."   
 Make it a GREAT week!

Happy Monday, Everyone!  Well, from previous post most of you know that I have decided what I want:  To Help People.  I'm taking classes and training to be able to reach more people and get my message across in the most professional and polished way (hopefully). :-)  I wrote down my goals and taped them up on my desk, car visor and refrigerator.  Here is my Specific Goal for the week:  To finish reading all the material I received from the trainings I registered for next month.  To really understand all of it, or find the understanding if I need to.

So how about my blogging friends:  What are your goals for the week and what are you going to do to reach them?  :-)

  1. At the back of my mind I have been wanting to move back to Spain, I came back three 3yrs ago when my eldest son was diagnosed with cancer, he is in remission and fingers crossed doing well. I loved the Spanish lifestyle so perhaps this week is the week I set the wheels in motion, I wouldn't be able to move before Christmas but it do take some planning.

    Hope your goals materialise for you.
    Yvonne.

  5. Good luck, I have faith that you'll reach your goal!

    As for mine, it's the same as it has been for awhile now - to find a stupid job! I don't know what else I can do that I'm not already doing though.

  7. This was a very encouraging post and most needed on my end. My goals are to eat healthy till Saturday, workout at least five days this week, and write at least six days this week. I truly hope that I can make it... Best wishes and blessings on your goals. I think that it is so wonderful that you want to help others. To me that is what life is all about. :o)

  8. The reason most people -I've learned - don't reach their goals is because we all have these hidden subconscious programs, i.e., "I'm not good enough," "T'm too old/young/rich/poor/ fat/skinny/dumb/smart whatever to do this" that keeps us locked into the space we currently inhabit which is why the ancients have said "Know thy self". Today thankfully their are different techniques that have been developed to help people move outside their belief systems they don't even know they have. There's a free youtube video called "Access Consciousness" that really help me understand what's possible - they offer seminars but I couldn't care less. What's given for free is the best. Anyway that's my two cents. Smile.

  9. Hmmmm ... goals for the week. I actually enjoy setting and accomplishing goals. But I struggle with this because my kids interrupt me all the time. And it's really difficult to accomplish personal goals while helping other people. At least, I'm not very good at being interrupted and still doing things.

    My son has a portfolio project for poetry due this week. My goal is to make sure that he gets it done. And I need to put something on ebay. And pack for a weekend trip. And take pictures of my daughters in their dance costumes. :)

  10. That is so great. I am glad that you included understanding with your reading goal. Too often people read thing, but fail to understand them....so they just move on. It kind of makes the entire process pointless if you dont 'get' something from it.

    As for my goal for the week- at this point, I would say just mentally and physically surviving it. Kaitlynn is not off to a good start this week( refusing to take fluids the last day and a half.) So, if you pray, pray for her. If you hope, hope for her.
