Are you chasing your own goals, or other people’s goals?
Do you even know the difference?
Look—what you want in life is affected by what other people want in life.
When you see someone pursuing a goal, it makes you want to pursue a similar goal.
Instead, actively choose your own goals and then commit and recommit to them over and over again until you achieve them.
Studies show that people who watch someone else chasing a particular goal are more likely to chase the same goal themselves.
If you want to be happy and successful in life, you need to get deliberate with who you let into your life.
You need to stop associating with small-minded people with small-minded goals and instead start surrounding yourself with like-minded people with big goals.
The only way to keep small-minded people from affecting your goals is to focus your mind on what you really want.
Here are 3 strategies that will help you stop chasing other people’s goals and start chasing your own goals…
1. Stop worrying about what other people will think of you.
Other people’s opinions about your goals don’t matter.
When it comes to your personal goals, the only person whose opinion matters is yours.
The problem is that you’ve been bombarded with other people’s opinions since birth.
You’ve been listening to what other people think for so long that you’ve forgotten how to think for yourself.
Start seeing other people’s opinions as a kind of virus.
You must do whatever you can from keeping this virus from infecting you.
2. Cut small-minded people out of your life.
There are people in your life who simply should not be there. These people are keeping you from fulfilling your purpose in life.
You only get one life—one chance to achieve your biggest goals.
No one is worth sacrificing your dreams to.
The only way to move forward is by leaving negative and small-minded people who hold you back behind.
You were meant for something more.
You just can’t see it because you’re surrounded by people with weak goals.
The only way to see your true potential again is to gain some emotional distance from these people.
You need to physically remove yourself from your current environment.
Distance creates clarity.
By gaining distance, your perspective will expand and you’ll start to see what’s really possible again.
3. Surround yourself with people who have strong goals.
Or better, surround yourself with people who have already achieved the things you want to achieve.
You need people to push you.
You need to be held accountable to your real goals.
Without this accountability, negative and small-minded people will slip back into your life.
Your goals will start to wander and sink.
The only way to prevent this is to figure out what you alone want first, and then surround yourself with winners chasing goals that are as big or bigger than your goals.
