Goal Cats

“In the end, it is important to remember that we cannot become what we need to be by remaining what we are.” ~Max Depree

Goals are needed to keep people from coasting through life, clinging to mediocrity. What the average person may not realize is that, in order to reach that next level, sacrifice is required. Eric Thomas, a very inspirational motivational speaker, says that” you have to be willing to give up who you are for what you will become.” There must be a realization within yourself that your ways now can’t settle. The training methods, the studying methods, the practice methods must be altered to reach that next level of greatness. There must be another gear that can be found within yourself. Say you want a better grade on a math test you studied ten minutes for. If you study ten minutes again, more than likely, you’ll manage to receive a similar grade as the first test. Now instead, what if a half an hour is set aside to study. Most likely there will be an increased test score. A time sacrifice in this case is required. Put the time in, and see the results. Most people believe good things should happen to them because they deserve it. Just because you deserve something, doesn’t mean it’s going to be given to you. You want something, you’re going to have to go out and take it. Make that dream real. No one is going to do it for you. Going out to get something accomplished WILL require change. You want to reach your next level of living, don’t wait for it to come to you, make the sacrifices and adaptations NEEDED to go out and take it.
