Cheetah Certified Project Manager (CCPM) Tip of the Day
Jan 27 – Achieving your goals is more about your will to achieve them than the way you can achieve them. You have infinite ways awaiting you.
Michelle LaBrosse, CCPM, PMP, PMI-ACP
I had a friend in my 20’s who used to tell me that just by setting your goal, you start the wheels in motion to achieve that goal. Yes, I’ve read all those books about believing it to achieve it. And for me, there is a deeper level of engagement that has to happen to make my goals a reality. I have to really really want it. Now, this might seem like common sense to most of you reading this. HOWEVER, sometimes people enter into my life who want me to jump on their wagon for their goals and make them my goals. Does this happen for any of you? The one factor they are missing is that the “will” I bring to achieving my goals is from my unique well spring of inspiration. In order for these folks to achieve THEIR goals, instead of trying to tap into my very well-developed “willing it to be” practices, they need to cultivate their own inner drive to see their goals through to completion. Whenever you rely on someone else to achieve your goals for you, you give away your power to make them happen.
This “will” is more of a learned skill than something I was born with. And we teach it to others, as well. My “will” gets the most activated on goals that are tied into my innate strengths in those areas where I am deeply passionate. For example, I am very passionate about helping people joyfully and skillfully pursue their dreams. So, any goal that I dream up, if it has this as a central component, it seems as if heaven and earth move to help me make it happen, fast.
