I recently heard that Richard Branson reads his goals up to 20 times a day.
For me this was an epiphany. Sure I’ve heard that goal setting is important – but how many of us READ them regularly, let alone write them in the first place?
A wise old book once said ‘without a vision, the people perish’. Sadly still after thousands of years, very few people either don’t have a vision for themselves or at least stopped long enough to think about “Where am I going? Where would I like to go? and Why?”
When you consider that only around 3% of people write their goals down, no wonder so many people lack direction and say things like “I’m too busy to write and read my goals”. Hearing that successful people like Branson, regularly read their goals spurred me on to do mine.
What better way to shape your life and success; write down your goals AND READ them several times a day.
Sounds too simple? But then again, if you don’t remind yourself where you want to go in life, others will shape your destiny for you – I’d rather have that control – wouldn’t you?
