When creating goals, mindset matters.
Whelp, that’s about all I need to say on this topic, but for those of you wanting / needing a little more, let’s dive a little deeper.
As I was thinking through what my next big goal should be, fear crept in. The fear that crept in was that I was going to become the arrogant ass that I was before. Not only that, but instead of building relationships as I accomplished this goal, I would actually be pushing people away as I chased down what I thought was a great opportunity.
I knew that I needed to go about this goal setting process differently. Instead of having some arbitrary goal that would benefit only me, I made others my focus. I knew that if I had a goal that was me centric, I would push people away as I chased an opportunity. However, if my goal was focused on benefiting those around me, then as I strived for that goal, I would be building the very relationships that would lead to the opportunities that I needed.
Mindset is everything. When our goals are focused on us, our interactions take a turn for the worse as conversations go from a we, to all about me. As you set your goals be careful of what kind of mindset you have, because it’s that very mindset that may just keep you from reaching your goals.
