Do you know how to complete your goals?
Be like a postage stamp.
Stick to it until you get there.
– Bob Proctor
Who is Bob Proctor
Bob Proctor is a personal development and business speaker, author and coach from Ontario, Canada.
Bob Proctor introduced me to personal development back in 2006. I joined a network marketing company in April 2006 and they had a coaching contract with Bob. It just so happened that his wife, Linda, was also a distributor with the company.
The Secret movie came out about a month later, and of course Bob Proctor was one of the featured teachers in the movie. He’s also one of the few law of attraction teachers that I have seen at a live seminar.
He doesn’t do as many seminars anymore, but if you get the chance to attend one do yourself a huge favor and go. He’s really good. Maybe he’ll bring his yo-yo.
How to Complete Your Goals
There is only one way to complete a goal. Stick to it until you accomplish it.
As Joe Vitale said in yesterday’s quote, choose a goal that scares you a little and excited you a lot. Bob Proctor said in that seminar I attended that he never takes on a new project if it doesn’t give him butterflies in his stomach first.
A good goal also needs a deadline. It can’t just be open-ended because that allows you to keep putting it off until later. It has to be something you actively work on now.
Like the quote says, stick to it until you get there. If you work on your goal diligently and it doesn’t come about by your deadline, change your deadline. Don’t change your goal.
Your goal is like a seed that you plant in your garden. Sometimes it comes up right away. But if it doesn’t, you don’t just dig up the seed and throw it away. You leave the seed planted and give it a little more time.
The same goes for your goal. Be like a postage stamp to a letter. Stick to your goal until the very end.
Thoughts become things. If you see it in your mind, you will hold it in your hand.
