If you never set any goals, you will never be disappointed....

I have met some wonderful people who struggle with goal setting.
Their reason is such a subtle lie.
They buy into the less you hope the less hurt you will have in your life.
The less you plan, the less you will be held accountable for.
The bills still come, there is no free ride and no sure way to avoid all pain and disappointment.
They are still disappointed and they have given away control.

It is so fun to watch when these same wonderful people begin to hope.
Next comes the dare to plan.
Then the actions that are needed follow.

A good friend and I were visiting about this today.
She suggested that people plan with the end in mind.
The vision of Rocky dancing his boxer's dance next to the statue in Philadelphia came to mind.
A winners dance.
He saw the championship belt and went after it.
He planned, did the work and dared to hope.

We are all in a fight.
The battle to stay thankful, passionate and determined is real.
It is important to remember we are winners.
The battle has been won.
Act like winners, and we reap the hope we need to get us started on the path to success.

Countries are conquered and civilizations lost over "identity." Show me a man with no identity and what have you shown me but someone with no beginning, no future and most certainly, an unrecognized end. Great blog.

Never truer words.

Goal setting is a huge aspect of life in any form be it work or personal. They are a must and once you set them and reach them the feeling of accomplishment is so wonderful !

Great Stuff Pickle !!
