Whenever we look at making changes and improvements to our lives we need to set goals and it’s not as easy as it sounds. When I started wanting to change things I would pick what I wanted to change, ponder it for about 10 minutes and then nothing would actually change. The problem was that my 10 minutes of pondering left me with a goal that was so grand and unachievable that I had no hope of reaching it.
That’s not to say that setting grand goals is a bad thing, not by any means – we all still have aspirations of becoming millionaires I’m sure. But what it does mean is that we need to figure out a better way to reach those goals and understand that change doesn’t come instantly or easily.
