I think many people out there, myself included, sometimes do not want to write down goals. Wait! That is way to euphemistic, people are so petrified of accountability and hard work that they fear writing down their greatest desires because if they don’t reach them people will look at them and laugh. Fear of failure and rejection.
The fear of the other and his or her judgement keeps us in a cage! The result, quite predictably but often overlooked, is that we hide in the shadows of comfort that has come in the night without notice and that keeps us in a grip of purposelessness nowhere. But that’s OK as long as we are not seen as failures or become one of those frantic people that run around chasing their goals and never get there. We indulge our own mediocrity and affirm those who dance with us in this ballroom of deception – all lights, fancy dress but no meaning!
I have news for all of those who indulge in this favourite, cowardly pastime: Do not shun those who dare to keep themselves accountable to their purpose on earth for they will lie on their deathbed with a smile on their face knowing that the greatest achievement in life is willing yourself forward with every breath in your body! You get up again and again despite the pessimistic ulcerations of those around you and never accept anything less than that which you have been called to do.
Ask yourself who do you want to be at the end of your earthly journey and be that person today!
