Goal setting is something which now everybody seems to be doing. However it is not possible to do any kind of Goal setting unless it is internal to you!
So why can I not set goals for myself like say a Mukesh Ambani (perhaps) does for himself.
Simple – internal to me, but I am afraid to put in the kind of efforts and make the kind of sacrifices that are necessary to achieve them. If I am not willing to put in the kind of efforts ASKING for such RESULTS is stupid, is it not?
One very important from a recent funeral was that when a person does not have a purpose in life – for what ever reasons – expecting him to behave rationally is wrong. A 47 year old bachelor (cousin twice removed) who died had not taken care of his health, perhaps had some personal loans, spent almost all his earnings, ….and his life was what any rational person would call a mess. However at an age when others were talking about their grown up (or small) children, perhaps this guy did not have anything to look forward to. His only ‘compulsory task’ was to look after his father – 77 , bedridden and needing money. However a ‘task’ cannot be a goal.
So if you internally do not have a goal, you cannot copy. You can only introspect. And that is tough.
If you do not have a goal, or you do not know with whom you are going to share your success – success is scary. You do not want success if there is nobody to share it with.
For all those who remember Lord Byron’s poem ‘All for love’ – it is the same thing for goals.
Only thing is the word love can be towards your parents, siblings, children…or like a Mother Theresa or a Jagadguru Shankaracharya towards the world. Or life becomes difficult. Death is easy.
