Michael Masterson has mentioned that the good and decent acts of friends, family, associates, and strangers have inspired him to make it one of his New Year’s resolutions – every year – to become a better person.
How about you? What inspires you to be a better person?
I consider myself to be still “under construction.” As such, I use goal setting as a way to design my life to match my hopes and ambitions.
When I turned age 50 nearly 10 years ago, I honestly evaluated who I was and who I wanted to be. One of the things I recognized was that whenever I used a “my way or the highway” approach, I inevitably limited my success and slowed down the achievement of my goals.
I consciously began to do what Michael does at the beginning of every year. I set an annual goal of taking action to be a better person. And I invite you to make this one of your goals, too… starting today!
Finding your own faults requires a certain amount of objectivity and candor… and it can be a bit painful emotionally. The second step – figuring out how to overcome those faults – can be tough. And the most difficult part of the process is to take action – to make these changes day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year… until you become the person you envisioned.
Easy? No. But as I can tell you from my personal experience, it is well worth the effort.[Ed. Note: Bob Cox teaches goal setting 365 days a year with ETR’s Total Success Achievement Program. link ETRgoalsetting
