Steering Through Uncharted Waters

Long ago I read about a study on goal setting. This study revealed that the number one reason most people do NOT write down their goals is for fear of not achieving them.

The best acronym I’ve ever heard for fear is:

(F)alse (E)motions (A)ppearing (R)eal

Never let fear take you off course before you’ve even left the harbor!

It’s very easy—and normal—for a captain to get scared when entering uncharted waters. But this is your life—your ship—and if you want to get to your destination, you must sail on.

I use this analogy for some of my business coaching and of course it applies to every day life as well: when we get caught in life’s storm, fear begins to set in if we do not know how to handle the inclement weather. Great captains learn to chart their course and prepare as best as they can for the storms. They learn to use the wind to fill their sails, not destroy them.

You can learn to be a great captain of and for yourself. It will take more than a certified life coach to help get you there; it will take your time and your effort. Yet, honestly, it is no more time and/or effort than living a mediocre life. It’s up to you.

For you to make headway in your journey, you must be totally honest about where you are today. It serves no purpose to lie to yourself about where you currently are. You must understand that where you are now is only the result of past thinking and planning (or lack of either or both).

Give it some deep thought. This will helps you assess your physical, mental, and spiritual health to reach greatness in living the life of your dreams.

You can achieve new results if they are carefully thought through and monitored so your outcome is consistent with your desires and dreams. So what are you waiting for—anchors away! Time to allow the law of attraction to work for you!
