One of my all time favorite quotes is:
What exactly does this quote mean? Well in my opinion, it has two meanings:
- In order to accomplishment anything we have to start somewhere.
- While the path towards greatness is long, every step we take gets us closer to our destination
While this may seem obvious to most, what may not be so obvious is the “how”. How do we start? Trust me, starting can sometimes be the hardest part of the entire journey…
So to help you get started I have created the “Strong Body–Strong Mind” series as a very simple “game plan” to help guide you on your path towards greatness. The focus of these videos will cover all aspects of self-improvement such as fitness, nutrition, meditation, etc.
This first video in this series is all about goal setting. I think of goal setting like picking a destination on a map. The first step is always picking the destination, then once we know where we are going we can then develop a plan on how we are going to get there! This is a critical step, because without a destination how do we know which direction we should start walking? Too many people fail to achieve greatness not because they are inadequate, but because they never picked a destination, and they have spent many years going in the wrong direction.
While picking a destination is always the first step, the most important part of the process is choosing your WHY! WHY did you choose your particular goal?
In the video below I discuss the importance of choosing both a goal and then determining your WHY behind the goal:
- Choose your destination (your goal)
- Determine WHY you choose this destination
Remember a GOAL without a WHY is like have a car without gas, it is useless!
Your GOAL is your DESTINATION, and your WHY is your MOTIVATION
