#5 MINUTES TRUTH: People who don’t have GOAL usually work for people who do!

What are your life goals?

If you’re unable to answer this question, you are in trouble. Basically, you are not in control of your life. If you look at every single sport in the Olympics, they are always scoreboard to quantify leading team and ranks. That is how we quantify the winners. In this context, they are 3 groups of people. Number one, the people who achieve their goal. Number two, the people who fail their goal. The third group, the people who do not have any goals.  If you’re in the first group of people, great! Now, you need to set a bigger goal. If you’re in the second group, it is alright. You learn something and do not ever let failure stop you from achieving your goal. Thomas Edison said;

I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.

If he gave up after his first try, do you think we will recognize him as one of the greatest inventors of all? Of course not, it is because he has shown perseverance to achieve his goal.

Now, the third group of people is the group you all should NOT be in. They are even worst who failed to achieve their goal. Zig Ziglar said;

If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.

It is like a football team in a World Cup who said, “We do not need a scoreboard. We just want to play.” There no sense of purpose for the football team to compete in the World Cup who do not care about their score. Do not be in that group. Remember this;

People who don’t have GOAL usually work for people who do.

Let us go back to the questions again. “What are your life goals?” I am going to share with you my high level 6 F’s of Life Fulfillment goals. They are Faith, Family, Fitness, Financial, Friends, and finally Freedom. These are the elements that I focus on every hour of the day. If it is not part of your goal, be bold to decline it. Why? Because you are accountable!

Call to action: You need to spend some time to reflect what do you want to do with your life and take control. Be in an environment that allows you to focus. It could be at the beach, in the toilet, Starbucks and anyway that allow you to focus. Please switch your phone off and just use a piece of paper and pen. Start writing it down, and remember the first draft of your goal is usually bad. But you just need to start. Write it down and execute your goal every single day. Your goal may develop over time but remember to stick with it and learn to adjust.

#5 Minutes Truth: Motivation is fancy word of FACTS OF SUCCESS

Have you ever googled motivational quote, just to motivate yourselves to do something? I know I did. We want to feel something which is the drive to get things done.  Sam Levenson said, “Don’t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.”

Do you really feel motivated? Yes, for a second. If you really really ponder, the motivational quotes are really just facts! Check out a quote from Michael Phelps’

There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be mistakes. But with hard work, there are no limits.

Again, the so call motivational quotes are actually facts of success. Only the people that are hardworking, persevere, hustle, grind and show grit will be successful. All it takes is action to make things happen. That is the only facts that will lead you to greatness.

They are two kinds of people. The first kind of people will say “I’m going to wait until I feel motivated.” The second kind of people will say “I’m going to do it because it is the facts of success.” The first one will never get anything done because he still waiting and waiting to feel motivated and not do anything about it. The other person will do first to live up to the facts of success. Which one do you want to be?

Every time you read motivational quotes, tell yourselves that it is the facts of success. If you intentionally do not live up the facts of success, you are unintentionally living up the facts of failure. Always live up to the facts of success! That is the only path to greatness.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone!
