The true self however is not ordinary, it is extraordinary. It is what we were created to be.

5 Secrets to Achieving Your Goals with Passion

Written by Julie Jordan Scott

Continued from page 1

Secret #2-POSITIVE framing of your goal by crafting your goal using a positive perspective rather than a negative perspective. In your goal, you will want to be growing towards something instead of avoiding something. Using positive language attracts positive situations and people into your life. Avoiding stuff brings more stuff to avoid.

Secret #3- Have PASSION for your desired result. Lets face it, you will have more interest in reaching your goals if they are something you are passionate about. If you are living your life based upon someone else's dreams or someone else's passion, what do you suppose will happen? Very little of significance-so choose passion!

Secret #4-PRECISION in crafting your goal is critically important in achieving it. Onrepparttar same point, it is also important to not be totally attached to achieving it exactly as you first created it. I refer to this quality as "Passionate Detachment". This means your vision is crucially important to you, this particular project and its particular result are simply a piece of it, they are NOTrepparttar 131449 entire vision and they are NOT you personified. With PRECISION, write your goals such as this: "My intention is to have X number of new accounts by Y date usingrepparttar 131450 following tools 1, 2, and 3". If you just say "I want to have lots of accounts" well, thats interesting. Just doesn't mean anything, so it is unlikely you will get to where you want to be very quickly.

Secret #5-POLISH your goal as you grow towards it. One of my favorite examples of polishing goals is Oprah Winfrey, whose goa was to be a Network News Anchor. She never became one, obviously. She did, however, become an American icon, positively effecting millions of people every weekday. She polished her goal, making modifications as her life changed. She loved herself and her vision enough to not be overly rigid.

Cecil B. DeMille, American Film Producer and Director said, "The person who makes a success of living isrepparttar 131451 one who sees his goal steadily and aims for it unswervingly. That is dedication." Being dedicated to your vision and allowing yourself room to create it will bring you to higher heights than you could ever imagine.

Want to berepparttar 131452 next Oprah (or whomever you admire)? Polish your goals with passionate precision. Picture yourself already there from a positive perspective. Live Passionately, today.
