    Reaching Goals

    What we aim at, we can hit. When the little boy shot at nothing, he hit it. Either way we win, but the feeling of success came only to the one aiming at a target or goal. The boy had to concentrate in aiming the gun to hit the bull’s eye.

    In hitting our goal, stress or tension is sure to be there. One of the stressful times could be when we have competing agendas. We had to divide up our energy or allegiance working on two goals in opposite directions. The effort is cut in half for each goal. Advancement is slowed considerably when concentration is divided in opposing projects. To be successful, let’s concentrate on one and postpone the other.

    We can be expectant of finding unique ways to reach these goals. Great minds of the past say we move toward our most predominant thoughts. As in competing agendas, one will win and the other loses so why not decide now on our prime priority.

    Another distress in reaching our goal is diversion from the outside. One enemy of reaching our goal is increasing competition. This will cause us to work slower, work less efficiently or encumber our schedule. When these are handled, we will reach our goals despite internal problems or outside competition.
