Positive mental attitudes are the keys to outstanding success.
Goals are the things which help us know what to do.
Many people, me included, had set important goals and eventually gave them up.
When we set important goals which are very meaningful to our lives, many things will happen.
We may hear the voices from within that these are not really the goals we want.
We may hear the voices that we will never achieve these goals - there will be the challenges and obstacles we can not overcome.
We may start feeling that people are not helping us and they are holding us back.
We may think these goals will take away some of our joy and pleasures.
We may findi faults with ourselves, our past, and people - what people did in the past and what they will do in the future.
Once the important goals are set, I used to become tense and expect the supports from other people right away.
Once the important goals are set, I used to feel fearful, doubtful, and worried - about myself and about people.
Negative feelings, bad perceptions, worries, and fears are the causes of anger, irritation, and unpleasant feelings and manners.
No matter how important and meaningful my goals are, my life will be a misery if my relationships with other people, especially with the people of my life, are affected.
The problems arise when I start seeing that the things people enjoy doing and the manners in which they do them are the things they must change.
I have set important goals in the past and failed because of the situations and changes that I have outlined above. I believe it has happened to many other people, too. But the problem can be solved when we know what they are.
One of the things which happened yesterday was this one. I looked at my 4 goals and started thinking that my golf goal was too big and it did not support my other goals. I also thought of the goals which I had not included.
But I told myself this. If I were to change my life and achieve a really meaningful success - both for my life and other people - I must get out of these mental trap/habit.
I must set the goals, committed myself, and keep them for as long as I live. I can work on the details and plans - what actions to do, where to go, the vacations to take. But I must not change or lower my top 4 goals.
I must stop finding faults with my life, my parents, my loved ones, and the people I meet.
It is true that people will continue to do things the way they like and enjoy. But I must not see it as a problem - or as a reason to distant myself from them. Happy people will do good for my psych and spirits - thus for my goals.
I must stop feeling irritated, angry, and annoyed when people insist they will do things they like.
And I must do my best with good purposes and attitudes for the goals I have set, everyday and night.
Once the goals are set, mental development and spiritual changes are the keys that will open the doors of my life to the outstanding success and experiences that will enrich my life and other people's lives.
