When geese fly in their distinctive V-formation (a skein), weaker birds are given incredible lift and each bird plays its part to assist the team. This enables the team to reach their goal with the most efficiency, and with the least number of casualties along the way.
Similarly, keeping our “geese in line” will allow us to efficiently reach our personal and practice goals. There are certain key features that will ensure you are more likely to reach your goals.
What should you do?
First make sure your goals and your purpose are in alignment. If your purpose is to serve your community but your goal is to spend less time in your practice, these may not be compatible unless you change how you are practicing.
Secondly, define your goals so clearly that you can all but touch them. Then, post images or phrases of your goals in places you will see many times each day to keep your goals clear and current in your mind.
Thirdly, take time each day to visualize them. Dr Joe Dispenza suggests that we meditate on our goal to the point that we taste, feel, smell, hear and see an image so real that it makes you smile on the inside as you experience it. The universe will then find a way to manifest it into your reality.
Finally, the lift beneath your wings that will propel you forward is massive action. Geese will battle wind, rain, hail and whatever is thrown their way to achieve their goal. What are you prepared to commit to and overcome to achieve your goal?
The New Year is traditionally a time that many people review their goals. We suggest that as you do, ensure you have these key features aligned to ensure you get the most out of your goal setting.
