5 signs you aren't serious about your goals...

5 signs you aren't serious about your goals



We all have goals. We all want to achieve our goals. We all aren't serious about our goals..

Are you serious? Here are 5 signs that may show you aren't...

1. Your goals aren't written down
-A goal that isn't written down is a wish. Stop wishing, and start writing. Put a date on it. If you don't give yourself a time limit, you'll procrastinate forever.

2.Your actions don't back up your words
- Yes, speaking goals aloud is a great way to motivate yourself and others. Yes, words are seeds. Yes, the power of life and death is in the tongue. However, talk is cheap. If you want success, you have to work. There's no way around it. Don't talk about it, be about it. Get busy.

3. You don't put in time to perfect your craft
-How many hours do you think an elite professional athlete trains per day? I thought so, if he/she has to train hard to top their profession, what makes you think you don't? If you aren't willing to commit time to your craft, your craft can't commit to you. Learn and perfect your craft, or remain with the masses of mediocrity.

4. You don't have a plan

-Some people have millions and millions of goals. Great! That's a start, but how do you plan to get there? It's going to be challenging to reach properly set goals without a plan. While you need faith and faith is great, faith without works is dead. Plan you works. After that, work your plan.

5. You don't educate yourself
-If you're serious about something, you'll learn all you can about it. Simple. This is not up for debate. The teachers who said "knowledge is power" were wrong. Only applied knowledge is power. Educate yourself so you can apply yours.

If none of these apply to you, GREAT! If they do, GREAT! Honestly, I'm happy you have a goal. I'll assume you didn't set a goal with intentions of never achieving it. With that said, lets get serious about our goals. Let's do what we have to do to get where we want to be. Let's get to work.

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…
