We all know that accomplishing your goals feels great – there’s an undeniable sense of achievement in claiming the inherent prize of reaching the target you’ve worked towards. Yet you may have heard the phrase “it’s not about the goal” before, as there are benefits at play here that far outweigh any gains the outcome itself could ever give you.
Here are 7 of the so-called “secondary” benefits of setting, following and achieving your goals that actually bring the most valuable rewards into your life:
Your signpost to growth
“The major reason for setting a goal is for what it makes of you to accomplish it. What it makes of you will always be the far greater value than what you get.” – Jim Rohn
This says it all really. Goals are all about growth – who you must step up within yourself to become in order to accomplish the result. Once you have progressed enough to become the person capable of doing what you previously could not, your world has expanded. True fulfilment and the very nature of living is all about forward movement. You’re either green and growing or ripe and rotting – stretching toward ever-greater levels and keeping the flow of life energy moving in a way you can tangibly feel, or standing still and experiencing the discontent of stagnation.
Goals that truly inspire you and ignite your passion inject your days with an energising sense of purpose and focus. Having a clear mission for what you want to achieve each day and a desire to really bring your all to life engages you deeply in the present, while moving you toward an even brighter future.
Taking the wheel
By following and achieving your goals you set a course for your life and take charge of driving it toward where we want to be. In the absence of direction and intention we hand over control to whatever impulses may lure us, the distractions that devour our time and our largely defensive programming takes the helm with its primary objective of keeping us safely within the confines of our current comfort zone.
Shape your reality
Setting your sights clearly on what you want to bring into reality attunes the unfathomable power of your unconscious mind to seek out solutions you cannot currently see, while bringing all kinds of assistance and manifestations into your awareness that otherwise would not have crossed your path. All you need to do is give it a clear target and direction. Similarly, by tuning into the wavelength of what you truly want to create and experience more of in your life, you invite opportunities to encounter more of these as you move through your days that may otherwise have gone unnoticed.
Shift your trajectory
Taking steps toward achieving your goals involves bringing new positive actions into your life that move you in the direction of your dreams. Your current habits are the perfect recipe for creating the results you are consistently experiencing in your life. As you follow your goals, even the seemingly smallest changes you ingrain into new habitual ways of being compound over time to completely alter the trajectory of where your life is heading.
Someone to believe in
Following through with what you promise yourself you will do, create and accomplish in your life makes a powerful statement. While most people would go out of their way to avoid letting someone else down, many fall into the habit of not holding the same standards of integrity to themselves and over time erode the trust and belief in their own abilities. The proof you demonstrate to yourself by achieving your goals reinforces that belief in your power to take action, move beyond your current limits and really make things happen. You find yourself excited by your dreams as they have real possibility and substance to them.
Invariably the greatest benefits to achieving your goals remain hidden until you have actually walked the path toward your target. Who you have grown to become, what you have moved through and your new levels of understanding empower you to see the world through very different eyes than when you started on your journey. You may discover rewards, treasures and unforeseen new opportunities that far exceed your expectations – and are oftentimes completely different to those you set out in search of.
See for yourself!
