Whose Goals Are You Aiming Towards?

I once read a statement by Steven Covey which said that if you don’t have your ladder on the right wall then all the climbing in the world won’t get you to your success.

What are your goals? What is your vision for this month, this year, this lifetime? And whose vision is this? Is it society’s? Is it your parents’? Is it your ego self’s? Or does your vision come from our Inner Self, or Spiritual Being, the Great Mystery?

Some of our goals are for short-term (or even long-term) “pleasure”. They can be fun, rejuvenate the soul, provide a place (physical or emotional) where we can retreat to, getting a break from the day-to-day journey. A very important element of healthy living.

Other goals are heading us towards our “purpose in life”. These aren’t guided by the need for achievement, power and glory, financial wealth, or some title of recognition. These visions come from Within and are aimed towards contributing to the greater good and making a positive difference for the next seven generations. They aren’t “me” driven; they are “we” driven.

Having a mixture of goals is important to one’s personal well-being and to the true sense of success. What are your rejuvenation goals and your vision of purpose for the next year, the next month, the next week, and for today?
