Hope Is No Strategy: Be Focused on Lifelong Growth, Not on Goals

business glory - Hope Is No Strategy: Be Focused on Lifelong Growth, Not on Goals

People too often set themselves goals, that are high and hard to reach. Being inspired by other entrepreneurs and successful people they want to achieve the same.

They “hope” being successful one day, too. And they work hard achieving that.

Setting goals is indeed the false way. And hoping for the best, too.

Hope is no strategy.

People who steadily “hope” for the best, should go to church.If we want to improve our life, we should improve ourselves first.

We better should concentrate on our abilities first, then deliberate what is possible at the moment, and then develop our skills further. We should evolve a sense for trust, for self-confidence. We should realize our potential, our hidden talent, and then develop ourselves further.

With motivation, passion and being willing to learn each day from our experience and our failures we gain an awareness for life.

The best teacher is certainly evaluated experience, which is reflection. We should spend each day some time reflecting, asking questions and putting things in the right perspective.

We learn to decide what is good for us, and what is bad. Being curious in life, being interested in life, and questioning what we hear, leads to a new consciousness, to inspirations, and to creativity.

Our world is owned by people who have owned bridges in their imagination before anyone else has. – John C. Maxwell

When you want to “grow” you should know: Growth thrives in conducive surroundings, in the right environment. A “growth” environment is one in which others are ahead of you, where you are continually challenged, your focus is forward, the atmosphere is affirming, you are out of your comfort zone, you are not afraid of failure, and where you steadily learn and improve your potential. Find somebody who does well and find out why he does well.

And what is very important: You must see value in yourself to add value to yourself. If you lower your self-image, you begin to doubt and the less you will accomplish.

Focusing solely on goals is seasonal, while concentrating on growth is lifelong.

Life is growth. If we stop growing, technically and spiritually, we are as good as dead.

– Morihei Ueshiba

Growth itself contains the germ of happiness.

– Pearl S. Buck
