For some sales people and business owners, goal setting is natural; maybe for you it is something you do everyday. Other people find huge value in hiring a coach, just as Tiger Woods has 3 coaches; the most successful people in the world know how they have benefited from using a coach.
But what does setting a goal really mean ? are you a failure if you don't succeed ? sure you know the answer to that ? but it may not be what you are thinking.
The only failure possible in a mistake is the failure to learn from the mistake. Without mistakes , crap decisions, things breaking and the whole world conspiring against people ? we would have no inventions ? No Eureka moments, would we?
So make sure you do lots of thinks, take calculated risks and most of all give your self a chance to fail ? at least you can learn another way not to do what you want to do.
Eddison, the inventor of the light bulb , was not immediately successful. In fact he failed lots of times and after failing nearly 10,000 times his exasperated assistant asked him if he was going to finally give up.
Looking at him perplexed, Eddison asked why he could possibly give up, after all he had now discovered 9,999 ways not to make a light bulb ? suffice to say , if you are reading this indoors, you know he succeeded!
So are you someone who really cares about what you want ? or are you one of the crowd?
We all like companions, s o we often follow the crowd!
But stop! And maybe you could reflect on the following;
It is the crowd that retires without enough to really live on in comfort It is the crowd that never achieves financial freedom. It is the crowd that sits in traffic for 3 hours a day, going to a job they don't love The crowd just exists in a world where they know there is more to life but they never seem to get off the mill wheel.
I don't know if you are different, and if you want to stand out from the crowd only you know why you are reading this right now. Do you know what you wish to achieve and where you really want to go with your life?
Now back to Goal Setting ? is it useful? ? absolutely , provided you have the discipline to set the goals and take massive action towards the goal.
And also remember ? it actually doesn't matter if you achieve the goal, as long as you work your butt off towards achieving it, and of course changing direction if the circumstances dictate it.
So why does it not matter if you don't make or achieve you goal ? could I not have just done nothing? - You may ask.
The benefit of the goal is achieved when you take the action towards it ? it creates the unstoppable momentum that will propel you towards your passion.
Yes, go on you can do it ? you can take this first step.
Finally, I would like to make it patently clear that this article is not a plug for my coaching services for executives and sales people. It is intended as something to help you grow.
Whether you can do this on your own or with my help is again something you must decide for your self ? there is no way I could know , unless you contact me and tell me you want coaching.
Nowadays, everyone is talking about organic foods. I have been wondering whether it is just a fad or people want to try out something new. Human beings have been eating normal or non-organic food and groceries for generations and have survived. So what is the big deal about 鈥渙rganic鈥? To clear your doubts, let us try to find out what is organic grocery.
Our usual groceries and green groceries are produced using chemical fertilizers like ammonia nitrate. This implies that the soil is enriched with these chemicals so that the same land will produce better crops and more harvests in a year. This is an artificially-created condition and the produce will imbibe some of the chemicals through the roots. Also, in order to protect crops from pests and insects, chemical sprays are used to repel them. Some of the harmful effects of these chemicals are inherent in the groceries that we consume. Long-term consumption can cause many degenerative diseases like cancer , neurological disorders, birth defects, or worse.
Whereas, organically grown groceries imply that no artificial methods are used in the production of the groceries. The organically grown products have the following qualities:
路 The groceries are grown without using genetically modified organisms, pesticides , fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionization techniques
路 Animals that provide meat, eggs, poultry , and dairy products are not given antibiotics or hormones
路 The products are inspected and certified by the appropriate Government authorities as safe and organically grown
路 The products do not contain preservatives
路 Organic groceries taste better.
To find out what is organic grocery, let us check how organic food is grown and see if it is really beneficial or not.
v How organic groceries are grown
Without the use of chemicals, how do the organic farmers prevent damage to crops and get the best harvest? They use natural methods to get good results. For example, they use natural manure and compost as fertilizer. They use old-fashioned methods of crop rotation and weeding to remove the weeds and let the crops flourish. Traps are used to catch insects, rabbits , and rodents instead of chemicals poisons. Livestock feed does not contain hormones or genetically modified organi.
