“It’s all about focus. I don’t
care who you are, where you’re from, doesn’t matter. It’s having a focus and
having a purpose. You wake up every single day to get better today than you
were yesterday.” –
We are still at the "starting line" of the New Year, 2020! As we know insight leads to clarity, increasing our chances of goal accomplishment and success.

“Social support enables the production of protein
based molecules, such as T-cells and natural killer cells, which assist with
proper immune functioning. Social support seems to slow many processes associated
with body and brain aging. In a study of approximately, 7,000 subjects, it was
discovered that individuals with more social support live longer regardless of their
socioeconomic status, exercise habits, smoking, or obesity. The results of this
study support the fact that social support improves our health by assisting in regulating
our emotions, which subsequently has a positive impact on metabolism and
immunological functioning,” p.70
If we do not possess an inner determination that taps into our core motivators and the necessary discipline needed to minimize distractions
the odds of us accomplishing our goals are greatly diminished...
Thus, as we enter the year 2020, let’s remember the 2 “D’s!”
This is my puppy, Phoebe, when I take her for walks, she is
often greeted by people wanting to say hello to her. However, approximately 90%
of the people refer to Phoebe as a “he”; they assume that she is a male dog.
This is an example of “puppy expectations,” in that
people are assuming the sex of the
dog without actually knowing. In this case, assuming, and having false expectations does not result in
much harm, or not achieving one’s personal goals. However, it is a very good example of how
our brains are wired to make faulty assumptions and expectations, under
Having faulty assumptions about the sex of a dog, ultimately
has little consequences, however as it pertains to your goals, the specific
means by which you will accomplish them necessitates never assuming, or
expecting a certain result without knowing
the specifics and the facts.
specific and clear in your goal pursuits keeps your expectations realistic,
thus goal attainment becomes a reality!
My little Phoebe story is a lesson about faulty
are procrastination goals, these are the goals that are not on our top priority
list. For example, for the past several months, I have had several boxes of
clothes to sort through, then make a determination which ones to donate to Good Will.
Also, I had 2 pictures to hang up, which did not get done until a month after
setting the goal of hanging the pictures.
above goals represent procrastination goals, which are essentially goals
without an established timeline for achieving them, thus these goals get put
off indefinitely. As we know inherent in these goals is the reality that they
often continue to get put off, and frequently never get accomplished.
today being the start of a new year, it is vitally important to remember to
establish a timeline for accomplishing ALL of your goals.
what goals you want to accomplish, why they are important to you, then set
a date that is realistic for
accomplishing them…especially procrastination goals.
