FOCUS ON ONE GOAL AND TAKE ACTION!

Focus on one goal and take action.

Focus on one goal and take action if you really want to achieve great things in life. Thus, we need to set goals from a higher point! It’s a matter of perspective.

THE COMPTON HILL WATER TOWER

When I was in St. Louis for speaking events, I noticed a unique structure in the Compton Hill area just west of downtown. The picture above is of the historic Compton Hill Water Tower, adjacent to the Compton water reservoir. The Tower is on the National Register of Historic Places and is significant for both its architecture and engineering.

Built in 1899 at a higher elevation point in St. Louis, the tower is 179 feet high. It is a standpipe design that is encased in an architectural tower and a critical part of the city’s nearby water system. Today the tower is open for tours. Visitors climb 198 steps to get a great view of the city.

FOCUS ON ONE GOAL AND TAKE ACTION TO THE TOP!

We can all achieve our most important goals if we focus on one important goal and place it at the top of the list.

Like the Compton Water Reservoir in St. Louis, we all have a reservoir of energy. Thus, we need to focus that energy! Focus on one goal and take action!

Identify, on paper, your one most important goal for the next 12 months. Break that goal down to what simple steps you could take in the next 30 days and then in the next 7 days. Then take one important step today and another tomorrow. You might see things differently!

GOALS DON’T NEED TO BE UPHILL!

Goals don't need to be uphill.

Goals are important. However, too often, we either don’t identify them clearly or we set them so high it seems as if we’re going uphill.

When I spoke before a great group in Canada, I was at the Calgary Golf and Country Club in Calgary. Since I was there, I took the picture above from the back patio of the club. I learned the following on the club’s web site: “Established in 1897, the Club bought land on an isolated bend of the Elbow River in 1909 and began play in 1911.

The foundation of today’s course was laid out by the Scottish designer Willie Park, Jr. in 1922 and restored to his classic standard in a 2005-2007 major renovation.

PEOPLE HITTING GOLF BALLS UPHILL?

I’ll admit to you that I do not play golf and do not know much about the game or the rules. However, the reason I took the picture above was that it shows a beautiful flat putting green and then it shows people hitting golf balls uphill.

I realize there are hills on golf courses. This one just seemed steeper to me and it’s as if players were being challenged to hit certain marks up the hill. Those marks being the white circles in the picture, up the hill.

ARE YOUR GOALS ACHIEVABLE?

I got to thinking about the correlation of that golf course to us setting goals in life. As a result, too many times we set goals that are so far ahead that we don’t believe them. Thus, we don’t take action.

That might be the golf shot all the way up the hill in Calgary.

What if we broke our goals down to believable portions? Perhaps trying to hit the closest uphill mark in the picture above? Then, when we hit that, it might give us the confidence to hit the next mark up the hill.

Thus, if you have an important goal for this year, and you haven’t taken action, why not break it down into achievable and believable portions? As a result, you will take action on the first step and see what happens.

This could give your goals a lift!

ATTITUDE SPEAKER TALKS ABOUT GOALS!

Attitude Speaker and Goals as Relating to Roulette.

Attitude speaker and goals are two important things to me. I also realize that our attitude toward our goals is very important. Thus, we cannot gamble with that. It’s important to identify our goals, in writing, break them down, and take action.

I noticed an attitude lesson when I spoke in Las Vegas and walked through the casino at the Mirage Hotel. I saw the roulette game and took the above picture of it.

BECOME A BIG WHEEL INSTEAD OF A LITTLE WHEEL!

Wikipedia explains that “Roulette is a casino game named after the French word meaning little wheel. Players may choose to place bets on either a single number or a range of numbers.

The colors are red or black, whether the number is odd or even, or if the numbers are high (19-36) or low (1-18).

No matter which way you look at it, playing roulette is a gamble. We’re hoping the ball lands on the right number so we can win.

LET’S NOT GAMBLE WITH OUR GOALS!

When we don’t write down our important goals, we’re gambling that things will work out the way we want.

As an attitude speaker, I learned that we’ve got to change our attitude about our goals and realize that “for things to change, we’ve got to change.” It’s not the economy. It’s not the weather and it’s not good breaks. It’s US and our attitude.

If you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to write down your 5 most important goals for the next 5 years. Then write down the steps you will take in the next 12 months and the next 30 days to help accomplish those goals.

Let’s make sure that the figurative roulette wheel in your life has the ball landing on the right number! That’s a productive way to take control of your power!

SETTING GOALS CLEARLY THROUGH 6 PICTURES!

Setting goals clearly through 6 pictures.

Setting goals, and achieving them, can be accomplished much more successfully when pictures are involved. During a recent stay at the DoubleTree Hotel by the Orlando Airport, I saw the big screen television sets above in the newly remodeled lobby.

At the time I was there, all of the TV sets were tuned to sports programming. Thus, I would imagine that this would be a popular spot during the NFL football season. People will get a clear picture of what’s happening at 6 different stadiums around the country.

Broadcasting has certainly come a long way since I was a little boy. Then, there were only 3 channels, the pictures were black and white, there were no remote controls, and all broadcasting stopped at 12 midnight.

WHAT IF WE PICTURED OUR FUTURES CLEARLY?

Those 6 television sets at the Orlando DoubleTree gave me an idea about our futures. What if we wrote down the 6 most important goals in our lives, both personally and professionally, and then got pictures of each of those goals as if they were already accomplished?

Then, what if we posted those 6 pictures on a wall, in a similar configuration as the TV sets in Orlando? And then, what if we looked at those pictures every day?

THE MIND RESPONDS TO PICTURES!

The mind respond to pictures. And, what we focus on expands. Those two thoughts give us a clue to our future success. What we see on a regular basis becomes ingrained in our brains. And, as Napoleon Hill said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” Let’s screen your future and watch what happens!
