How to set goals?

“In 1979 interviewers asked the Harvard MBA program how many of them set goals. They found that 84% of the program set no goals at all. 13% of them set goals but they weren’t committed on paper. And only 3% set goals that were committed on paper and had plans to accomplish them.

Ten years after they interviewed the same individuals again. The results were absolutely staggering. They found out that those 13 % who set some goals but hadn’t had them on paper were making twice as much as the 84%. And even more staggering was the fact that 3% who had committed goals written on paper had actually been making more money than the 97% put together. ” – Jay Shetty

The common mistake that we make is that we overestimate what we can do in one year and underestimate what we can do in 10 years.

Think and grow rich book shows us an example of how we should set a goal and what questions to ask ourselves.

  • The exact amount of money I desire
  • Determine exactly what I intend to give in return
  • Establish a definite date for opposes the money
  • Create a definite plan for carrying my desire
  • Write a clear statement

Here is an example:

I Bruce Lee will be the first, highest paid oriental superstar in the US. In return, I will give the most exciting performance and render the best quality in the capacity of an actor. Starting 1970 I will achieve world fame and from then onward till the end 1980, I will have in my possession £10,000,000. I will live the way I please and achieve an inner harmony and happiness.

Sighed Bruce Lee,

Dated 1969.

What is love?

What is love?

When I google this questions, the first thing I read is that “Love is an intense feeling of affection towards someone else.” As I grow older and think more about love I realise that love should be seen not just as a feeling but an enacted emotion. Don’t just say that you love someone, show them that you do. Therefore, to love is to feel and act lovingly. Love is giving, love is tolerance, love is learning.

When two people who understand themselves come together, they actually are able to enhance each other’s potential. See, we all want to feel love and we all want to be in love. But what we need to understand is that love is not about us. It is not about our selfish motives. As in the Bible it says “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” Is not it beautiful? God is love and he tells us to love others as we love ourselves.
