There are two different categories of goals:
- Accomplishment Goals
- Destiny Goals
An accomplishment goal is something you set for yourself just to get it done and feel a sense of accomplishment. These goals usually have no deep impact on anyone else but the individual and sometimes not even the individual. An accomplishment goal can basically be anything you would do that only impacts your own life or gives you a momentary sense of self worth.
An accomplishment goal has to be set over and over again in order to get that quick fix of self-worth
Let me repeat that... "An Accomplishment Goal Has To Be Set Over And Over Again To Get That Quick Fix Of Self Worth"
Destiny goals follow a virtually steady course that lasts an entire lifetime. It may even be felt long after you're gone - leaving a legacy that impacts the world through decades and maybe even centuries. It's your reason for being! A true destiny goal will empower the individual to leave his/her mark on the world. It will drive the individual to want to make the world a better place.
Everyone of us has a destiny goal - a specific reason for being here but most have never even thought of exploring what that is and as a result, their destiny goes unfulfilled.
Many people die, without ever knowing for sure why they ever lived.
~ Luc Despres
If you are jumping from accomplishment to accomplishment just for the sake of accomplishment, you're life will never truly take on meaning. You will always have to look for the next fix to satisfy your thirst for self-worth. Why not discover what you are truly here for - your reason for living - and simply commit your entire life to living out that purpose? In this way, you will not be swayed by the next shiny object that promises you a feeling of accomplishment but instead, leave your mark on the world by following one straight course, never needing to second guess yourself!
When you commit to a destiny goal, you will be guided internally by your spirit and you will be able to trust your gut feelings on a much deeper scale.
God has set a course for you to follow and the goal now is simply to align yourself with that course. When you do, you will discover a strength and power that will surpass your understanding. There will literally be nothing that can stop you from living in your true potential and you will go on to impact hundreds, thousands and maybe even millions of lives.
This is your potential when you embrace your destiny and the result will be a legacy that lives on long after you're gone.
