Keeping Your Goals Alive

Having a goal is one thing but to keep them alive can become an arduous task amidst the daily grind of work, rest and play. It is so easy to say change for the better when you have already changed to suit your circumstances. A lot of us are what we are because circumstances have made us that way.

My name is Steven; I am fat because I lead a very idle life. My job entails sitting down most of the time. My job is important to me because it brings home the bread and the butter. It allows me to live and it allows me to move on. I want to change. I want to loose weight but I simply cannot because my circumstances restrict me to a tight schedule each day.

My name is Angela, I am in debt. I am sorry about this but I took chances in my life that did not pay off. I trusted too many people and paid the consequences of my actions. I work steadily but my income will not support my outgoings. It is as simple as that but gets more complicating. I do not have a pension portfolio that will support my retirement. I haven’t been on a holiday and neither can I afford one.

My name is Colin, I am very ill after an expected injury at work. It was quite debilitating and hampered my progress. There was a lump sum awarded to me but nothing more. I try to carry on but the world looks so bleak for me. I tried all aspects of career change and moving to a warmer climate but to no avail. I miss doing the things that I should have been able to do and enjoy thoroughly.

My name is Kim, I am a divorcee. It is quite hard living as a single parent but I try each day to do more for my two children. We are restricted in so many things in life and I never foresaw such a sad outcome to my marriage. I am quite strong but to go through the stigma of separation and feel the pinch of hardship saddens me each day.

Dear Friends, we all hold a placard of misfortune and carry this onto the frontiers in front of us. Life can be strange but can life become a change. Can I become fit again, debt free, recover from injury, find a new partner or get out of the crutches of misery. The answer is yes, the solution is slow and the outcome is highly rewarding.

The first sequence in a chain of events to uplift you is to start by asking what your need is. What is that special need that will turn your life around? Don’t be afraid to discover that need and once found you need to feed it with life. You need to energise it with research, with enquiries, with potency and with love. You then need to establish a time frame upon which that explosive need becomes fulfilled.

Each day that passes you must be fuelled with energy, pumped into exhaustion and cleared of confusion. Gather information pertaining to that need. Gather physical information that you can keep in a folder for easy reference. Now, become the student that takes information and use it to their advantage. Any information is useful information, without which you are the same person that remains fat, in debt, ill, divorced or in a pile of human misery.

Dear Friends you can erect a new sail of hope and steer your craft onto calmer waters if the need arises. To do so requires your input. There are instructions awaiting you in the faculty of your research, getting to grasp this information is not hard. You need to keep your desire alive and you need to be patient. Many of our failures in life stems from impatience.
