Setting Course

Erich Fromm, psychologist, said: “Vitality itself is the result of vision. If there is no longer a vision of something great, beautiful, or important, then our vitality and stamina diminish.”

This quote shows us how important it is to have a clear goal in anything we do, so we feel alive and engaged. By having a clear goal we have made a conscious decision on the course to take.

When setting a goal, it is important to be very specific, down to details, not just general and vague ideas. With the specificities we can also make sure we set measurable and attainable goals, which can be accomplished in a timely manner.  Lets take time to think through this process of setting goals. When we have realistic and meaningful goals, connected to who we are, framed with positive language, our chances to succeed are much higher. And let us remember to keep it simple, and keep ourselves out of the way. Let us not have our fears and preconceived, often false thoughts, get in our way to vitality, beauty, and fulfillment.

I wish you all much success for 2015!
