Beware Snake Oil Salesmen

There is no golden goose, silver bullet or miracle elixir. There is no easy way to changing your position, your prospects, your circle of influence or the world around you. In most cases it won’t be easy but it may be simple. Set a goal, make it manageable, do it, repeat, repeat, repeat.

remarkable slogan

What do you want (more of/less of)? How might you get it? How committed are you to that? How will you know you got there? When creating a goal, stated in the positive – I will have more time with my family starting today. Recognize what is in your control. Setting goals that compel or require others to behave in a certain way will likely lead to frustration.

Does the goal fit with your personal ecology? If you commit to earning $1Million but money isn’t an important measure for you then the goal is likely flawed. If you are going to achieve your goal through actions that are contrary to your values, you will fall short. Know yourself and set goals that fit with who you are.

Step up to the plate and take your swings. Evaluate your action, adapt and step up again. Persistence and courage, more than anything else,will be required on a daily basis but if you are still reading you are ready to take the first step. Do it now.

Make Today Remarkable, for you,

  1. I love this line: “Recognize what is in your control. Setting goals that compel or require others to behave in a certain way will likely lead to frustration.” The only person we can truly control is ourselves. Setting goals and then taking steps consistently forward can help you achieve them. Thanks for the wise words! Have a great week.
