The Power Of Exciting Goals
It’s really exciting to have a dream or an idea – but how do you turn this into reality?
Setting and embracing heart driven goals is a great starting point. And there are two ways to do this – one is to set yourself a ‘realistic’ goal that you are confident about achieving. Or you can set yourself a humungous goal that seems mad or scary yet excites you. There is no right or wrong. What’s more important is that you set yourself goals aligned to your vision and that tap into what motivates you and energises you, so you feel compelled to act.
I’m the latter – small goals just don’t excite me enough for me to follow through. However huge ones compel me into action. That’s what happened when I decided to raise more funds for the genocide survivors I work with in Rwanda.
My initial goal to raise US$25,000 in six months which seemed crazy (in the previous two years I’d only raised around US$18,000). But when I got speaking to friends and contacts, ideas started flowing. Until I ended up hosting the summit that I’m sharing below – with 16 incredible speakers who have all donated their time and share of profits to social causes and I’d now love to raise US$100,000 for 10 charities around the world.
Will I raise this? Of course I’d love to but I’m not attached to the outcome either – every US$1 raised, is US$1 nearer the target. Setting this huge goal has spurred me into action, helped me get clarity on my core message and has enabled me to connect to a wonderful group of people. What will be, will be. I know I’m much further forward than I would have been had I not set myself this goal. And I know miracles are unfolding in unexpected ways – I am so happy and blessed to be on this journey.
That’s the beauty of setting heart-centered goals that compel you into action – every step aligned to these will be taking you nearer your destination!
