BENEFITS OF GOING “BIG” WITH YOUR GOALS
There are big benefits of working towards big goals – amazing happiness, stretching your ability, increased passion, more energy, infectious enthusiasm, amazing achievement and actually creating the life you dream of! People who achieve great things tend to do so because they are powered by great dreams, while those who fail to achieve their fullest potential are more likely to NOT be ‘big thinkers’. You have got to think big to achieve big.
Every business should have at least one big goal, and every person within the company must know what that goal is and what it means for them as individuals as well as the business as a whole. And on the same level, each individual should be aware of at least one big goal (preferably one in each area of your life) and maintain an emotional connection to that goal. If everyone believes in the goal, then that makes it even more powerful. The method for choosing your big goal for a business is the same as the method for choosing the big goal for an individual person. American President John F. Kennedy set the big goal of being in space in 1961. It was a dream and it had a deadline. He said, “I regard that decision as among the most important decisions that will be made during my incumbency in the office of the Presidency.” John F. Kennedy’s famous “Moon Speech” the following year was brilliant, and it made Americans fully aware that they were all chasing the same dream.
“You always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take!”
~ Wayne Gretsky—Ice Hockey Legend ~
You have no idea what you are capable of. Can you pause now and just consider what you THINK you might be capable of. Think BIG. REALLY BIG. Then double it and you’re getting close. But in reality, you’re not even warm. WE HAVE TO PUSH BEYOND OUR LIMITS BEFORE WE FIND OUR LIMITS. Living with unused ability can be likened to having giant wings but not realizing that we have them—let alone what they can be used for. It’s only if we attempt to fly that we realize we have wings. And it’s only when we start using our wings that we realize we CAN FLY.
When you stop and think about the process of being successful in anything, you can actually see that every time you have achieved something worthy, you had to expand beyond your comfort zone. Winning occurs OUTSIDE our comfort zone. Now this doesn’t mean that you need to constantly stay outside of your comfort zone, but it does mean that you do need to venture out there often! And setting big goals actually PULLS you out of your comfort zone – encouraging you to extend your comfort zone outwards, increasing your skills in multitude of different areas, and allowing you to achieve your dreams.
