3 Secrets to the Goal of Balance

Here is some of what is shared at Bay Area Goal Setters Rock

On Sunday at church the Pastor gave a great conversation on the Goal of Balance so I decided to share it here as well as at the new goal setting site. Hope it is of value to you.

The Goal of Balance has three points or secrets to consider and a word picture that is used to make the point is that of trying to balance a baseball bat in the palm of your outstretched hand. While you try to or imagine this you will first note that it will be important that you have a proper focus with the bat. It will be best if that is some where near the top of the bat. If you try to balance the bat without it, instead looking off somewhere else, it will surely fall.

As you continue with the proper focus the next discovery you will make is that you will need to make constant corrections. Your hand will instinctively move in order to compensate to maintain the balance of the bat. Did you see that?? Moving towards a well conceived goal WILL require constant corrections as you encounter the issues that will certainly happen surrounding it that can pull you off track.

Equally important and simultaneously necessary is a clear objective needed while the goal is persued. Without a clear objective about why achieving the goal is of utmost importance, success is much less likely to occur.
There is a wonderful story that can add more insight to this found in the Bible in the Book of 2 Kings chapter 4 versus 1-7. There is a woman who has a goal to survive and only has a pot of oil and a good contact.

P. S.When you read it see if you can recognise how she used these steps to find the achievement of her goal. Come back soon and leave a comment I’d love to know if you saw it!

This Year's Last 100 Days

Sunset

I had an interesting email this week and thought it would be appropriate to share with all of you these interesting end of the year questions. A shift from making New Years’s Resolution is the idea of working it backwards. So here it is…

We all began this year at GO, and all roads lead to a final rendezvous; the difference is what we’ve done en route. Goals set, actions taken, and results realized determine if you get to call this year a success or not.

September 23rd is an important date as it marks the 100 day countdown of 2009.

With that in mind, I have put together a number of questions for you to consider as you progress toward the finish line and call this year a wrap:

1. What specific results have you achieved so far this year?
2. Are you healthier, wealthier, and wiser?
3. Are you winning, losing or just holding ground?
4. What results are you committed to achieve by the end of the year?
5. How have you grown and what have you learned this year?
6. Is there any unfinished business that needs to be tended to in your life?
7. Are you actively pursuing what’s most important on a daily basis?
8. What habits do you need to change to ensure better results?
9. What is the key issue that inhibits your ability to perform at your best?

You must live to answer and honor these questions, because when it comes to the last 100 days of the year, every day and everything you do counts.

What Limitation Holds You Back?

So often in life , the focus is on what we do not possess. These thoughts or beliefs stands between ourselves our aspirations, dreams, goals and our abundant life.

The preoccupations concerning a limited education, the inability to speak confidently or express ourself, limited funds, lack of creativity, not knowing the right people and the list goes on.

From time to time we are jolted by a reminder that nothing can stand against a passionate commitment to the disciplined process of pursuing that ‘great activity’ that haunts the corners of our minds. That activity you would choose to spend all your time doing if it were in your power to choose.

Consider the dancer’s story…

–posted by Brandy on Aug 17, 2010

In a Chinese modern dance competition on TV one very unique couple won one of the top prizes. The lady, in her 30’s, was a dancer who had trained since she was a little girl. Later in life, she lost her entire left arm in an accident and fell into a state of depression for a few years.

Someone then asked her to coach a  children’s dancing  group. From that point on, she realized that she could not forget dancing. She still loved to dance and wanted to dance again. So, she started to do some of her old routines, but, having lost her arm, she had also lost her balance.

It took a while before she could even make simple turns and spins without falling. Then she heard of a man in his 20s who had lost a leg in an accident. He had also fallen into the usual denial, depression and anger type of emotional roller coaster. But, she was determined to find him and persuade him to dance with her …  He had never danced, and to dance with one leg … are you joking with me?? “No way!”

But, she didn’t give up, and he reluctantly agreed thinking, “I have nothing else to do anyway.” She started to teach him dancing. The two broke up a few times because he had no concept of using muscle, how to control his body, and knew none of the basic things about dancing. When she became frustrated and lost patience with him, he would walk out. Eventually, they came back together and started training seriously.

They hired a choreographer to design routines for them. She would fly high (held by him) with both arms (a sleeve for an arm) flying in the air. He could bend horizontally supported by one leg with her leaning on him, etc.

In the competition, as you will see, they dance beautifully and they legitimately won the competition.

When I watched this I didn’t even realize that she was missing an arm because I was focusing on the guy with only one leg. Watch this is really quite amazing!

Creativity United with Passion Brings Clarity

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XALC1Wb9-R4]

In a society which seems to be brimming with creativity and self expression it seems there is often something missing.

In decades past greatness was a rarity. Today it is show cased on every station. Dancing with the Stars, American Idol, and Donald Trump’s, The Apprentice. Talent and competition is everywhere. Each day growing more challenging to see where unique greatness is truly reflected.

What is a driving force that separates talent from greatness?

Passion, the special ingredient that causes the one endowed with talent, to bring forth not just applause but emotion. Emotions like shock such as Houdini created with his magic, to amazement as it might have been for the first person to experience Alexander Gram Bell’s telephone or the awareness and change that came through the choices of Gandhi’s life. Emotions that reflect deep felt appreciation for the awesomeness of the gift being presented by “the great one”.

Today everyone seems to be asking,” what is your passion”.

I hope you enjoyed this moment of what seems to me like greatness. An obscure painter bringing together his talent with a songwriter’s words, the voices of singers and with obvious passion.

To your personal passion

Greatness is driven by passion

Passion can be present even in obscurity
