Your G-Me-S Is Designed to Help You Navigate and Reach Your Destination
Your Inner G-me-S also referred to as your Global Me System, is sort of like a GPS or Global Positioning System. The process of getting from where you are located today to where you want to at some point in the future is like using the GPS technology in your vehicle, or on your cell phone or tablet. For the GPS service to work it needs to know two things, where you are right this second and where your making plans to go.
The navigation system receives signals from multiple satellites that triangulate your position and pin point where you are right now. When you type in your destination the navigational system creates a roadmap that displays the route you will take to your destination. Your steps are laid out for you, what you do going forward, is follow the guide.
Success in Life Works the Same Way
Are you planning to take a short trip or a long trip? How big is your goal? Is it a small goal or a big goal? Author David Schwartz in his book, The Magic of Thinking Big states; think little goals and expect little achievements, think big goals and win big success. Conversely Donald Trump said if you must think any way, you might as well think big.
Once you know where you want to go, all you must do is enter your destination into your G-Me-S, via a clear vision supported by a plan of action which serves as your roadmap. Then accelerate forward and start driving towards your goal. Your inner G-me-S will continue to unfold the route as you progress. In other words, once you clarify and stay focused on your goals, the next steps will keep appearing ahead of you along the way. Just like your GPS does.
Life with no destination in mind is like the Wi-Fi on your smart phone, it will keep searching and searching until it finds a source that can supply it with what it needs. Your mind is a goal seeking mechanism and without some place to go it just keeps searching and searching for something to do, burning up your energy. Or even worse your subconscious mind will set goals for you without your conscious permission. Often based off old behavior patterns or old programs that you no longer wish to operate from. The way to be in control and stay in control is to make sure you always have a destination in your G-me-S and monitor it to ensure that you stay on the planned course. In the words of Tony Robbins, goal setting is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible. As a bonus thought, Zig Ziglar always said a goal properly set is halfway reached.
A G-Me-S is designed to help you navigate and reach your destination, it is beneficial to all that use it. Unfortunately, a GPS and the G-me-S do not tell you when there will be rough terrain, detours, road blocks, construction zones, or bumps in the road. All this means is that from time to time you may need to reevaluate your route. Determine whether to stick with the route you’re on or take an alternate route that leads you to your predetermined destination.
I love this thought from Michelangelo as it pertains to setting goals. The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it. Think of yourself as a rubber band. The size of your success will be determined by how far you willing to stretch yourself.
