I once bought a book entitled Living Without Goals just because the title ticked me off so much. The thought of living without goals is so counter intuitive and so alien to me I actually bought the book just to prove the author was wrong. I bought that book 20 years ago.
Today I write living without goals still does not resonate with me, yet I now understand what the author was attempting to convey. Having goals, writing goals, thinking about our goals is not the problem. How we attach to our goals is!
Dr. Success™ Challenge*: Think about your goals. Is it the goal that turns you on and ignites your flame for life or is it the potential outcome?
Consider your goals from a place of “high attention, low attachment”. And remember: where you put your energy, you create your results.

I wish to thank Jack Canfield for introducing me to the concept of “high attention, low attachment.”
A Dr. Success Challenge is an example of teaching what I need to learn!
