RE: The Bullshit In Goal-Setting (And The REAL Road To Surfing The Waves Of Wealth)...
Such as... sometimes what we think we want may really not be what is actually best for us....
The decision of setting a goal , and going after what we want does seems right to anyone who hears it. But the truth of the matter isn’t bitter but the fact . Some do find it bitter and fail to come to the reality of it , some got to realize and amend their course as it dawns on them that the goal they set is not what is best for them.
We don’t always know what life / the universe may have in store that is far better than what we might choose for ourselves, based in our limited awareness.
We never know what opportunities and blessings we might end up cutting ourselves off from, were we to so fervently think we know what is best for us.
And of course, there’s always the bit: what we think we want might actually end up being very different than we imagined it as.
This is so true about me talking from personal experience. I never knew I could be a singer , If I had known then I wouldn’t had studied Computer Science in College but Music. Now I realized my goal of being a computer scientist isn’t the best for me after all, I’ve earned nothing from being a computer scientist but I’ve earned some good and kind hearted friends with music and their support has been a blessing.
They say “luck = preparation meets opportunity,” and I had undergone alot of preparation. But there was no goal I ever could have set to have created the opportunity - whereas it presented itself in perfect timing.
Hmmmmm true words, preparations meets opportunity. Only a prepared mind is ready to flow with life the way it comes . Wrong goals pursuit will only get one going the wrong direction. Deep knowledge here I must say
That the opportunities leading to our wealth are probably not those we first think or expect.
Life lesson this is to me , I see myself walking the path I never imagined myself walk and I have no regrets.
For those who’ve been committed to cultivating their skills, investing in their knowledge, and tuning their senses to the changes occurring in the world - preparing themselves to create value when a specific opportunity arises that matches the talent they’ve diligently developed and is able to be effectively applied in tandem with the knowledge they’ve acquired... SURF’S UP.
Some valuable advice I must say, cultivating my skills, investing my knowledge and diligently developing my talents preparing myself for opportunities to arise are my newly found hobbies. Thanks @rok-sivante for impacting knowledge.
