My wife and I experienced a five-year period of challenges and heartaches. Gina was diagnosed with cancer twice, my father passed away, my career was up in the air, and our finances were at rock-bottom.
It all felt like being on a high-speed roller coaster; one that never slowed down. Adding goals to this ride seemed impractical, until I discovered that I was always in control of my thoughts and actions.
I made the decision to Think G.R.E.A.T., regardless of how fast our roller coaster was traveling, or how many sharp turns came our way. As for my thoughts, I was committed to keeping a positive attitude, an unwavering mindset, and a high belief level to realize our big picture.
As for my actions, I was more than willing to be in control of them, but I needed to identify them first. I discovered that every goal can be accomplished if you take the right steps. As I looked more into the true meaning of greatness, I found the first element of The Goal Formula.
The 5 Steps to Accomplishing Goals – G.R.E.A.T:
G – Identify important Goals in your life
R – Establish powerful Reasons for accomplishing your goals
E – Set high Expectations for yourself
A – Take all of the Actions necessary to achieve a greater life
