Short Story Featured: The Eagle who never looked up

go after your dreams, don’t live life looking down
what if I fail? Oh but my darling- what If you fly?
there is no bigger waste than playing it safe

Interactive goal setting workshop
what did you want to be when you were little?
how many times did it change as you grew up?
are you currently doing what you thought you would be
if you had training or schooling- are you doing what you trained for?
if you went to college, or technical school or completed an apprenticeship
what’s the last goal you set for yourself?
What goal are you working towards now?
this can be diet related or otherwise
So unless your brand new to the podcast- you have gotten through quite a bit and most likely
have an ideal weight you are working towards

do you currently have a goal?
or have you already achieved them all?
or have you stopped making them
not talking about- just getting the kids up on time and clean and to school in 1 piece
a real goal- that you worked at achieving.
weight loss or otherwise
Or did you stop dreaming… like I had?
because you were overwhelmed at everything you were already focused on
I was feeling overwhelmed because I was focusing on what I didn’t have control over
asking myself the wrong questions like-
why is my employer expecting so much from me, don’t they know its impossible for one person
to get everything done that is expected
why are my customers upset with me about something not my fault
worried at what someone who doesn’t even know me at all is thinking about who I am
or because there was no energy at the end of the day to start to dream about anything else,
let alone take action towards something new
I was physically and mentally drained at the end of the day
or did you stop dreaming cause you have worked all your life and pretty much have what you want and feel you can coast now?
maybe 10-20 years ago you got the job or promotion you wanted.
maybe you got married and already have your soul mate
already bought that big house with the picket fence
or took that tropical once in a life time vacation
maybe you have the kids you dreamed of having and they are almost out of the next or off on their own
maybe they are still young and you are all about making their dreams come true now and feel your time has come and gone
Can you remember what dreams you had right out of school?
say right out of high school- before kids, before the house payments and day to day reality hit of your professional future
how about right after college if you went- around 22 years old. Educated and trained and thirsty for it all
before you had “it all” what did “it all look like to you?
If you are currently working on a goal- congratulations.
Tony Robbins- if your not growing and improving your dying
we can always improve upon ourselves
I just heard the other day Steve Jobs has had 150 Patton’s since he died.
Patton’s in the making upon his death
after he was a billionaire he didn’t stop
he kept improving
So let’s try an exercise about goal setting-
This will be an interactive podcast- grab a pad of paper and a pen.. Or your lap top or ever note or whatever you use
now if you are driving or biking or running this may be difficult- so I suggest listening to the podcast all the way through then
coming back to it once you are able to do this exercise. IT can be very powerful
try to think back when you were about 5-6 and just getting into elementary school
what was your goals in life?- Rockstar? Nurse? Astronaut? Write it down
put a check mark next to it if you achieved it
No think of when you were maybe around middle school age- hit puberty, what were your goals then?
marry Christian Slater or Johnny Depp
get through the talent show without falling on your head?
someday have a dog? Or a horse?
maybe ride in a limo and have a date for prom?
now go through and check mark everything you completed- did you go to prom?

Fast forward to high school
freshman year- I’ll bet you dreamed of getting your license… and a car
did you know what you wanted to do when you grew up?
did you want kids someday?
did you want to move near the mountains or the beach?
Did you want to see NKOTB in concert?
did you want to marry your high school sweat heart?
what was your goals then?
write them down- remember what you wanted
check off the things you really wanted and achieved
Now go to around 22- getting started in your career if you work
what were your goals?
did you want to buy a house?
have kids?
get a certain job or get into a certain company
did you want him to propose?
Now depending on how old you are we may be getting warmer-
go a bit beyond 22=
did you want a certain promotion
that fun car
a boat
did you want your kids to be on the honor roll
make that home run
dance her little heart out at the recital without throwing up or falling off the stage
by the time middle age comes around- let’s face it, there is less natural life changing events to look forward to and to dream about
As you grew up, your goals changed most likely. You were flexible and your needs changed
So entering middle age life…
but this is where it CAN get really good.
you’ve most likely checked all the reasonable things off your list already
you can check off the things most people get and achieve- the basics
Now you can dream and really hon in… specialize on what you really thrive on for the future.
Not everyone can change laws
or design apps
or educate others about clean living
not everyone can travel to Mexico and help orphans
or learn the violin while going through hormone therapy
not everyone can donate precious time to listen
or sing
or make amazing items with their hands.
or go out of their way to give away blankets to those that need them most
or correspond with fellow cancer survivors
not everyone will
but you can if you want to.
What do you WANT?
If you found out today that you had 1 week to live, what is it that you regret not doing?
because you never know
One of my goals is to not have regrets when its my time.
to live full out while I’m here.
maybe your goal is just to be comfortable where you are at
but I would like to offer this though to consider… my gut feeling is that eventually you will hit a wall
get into a rut
you will feel unfulfilled knowing you aren’t achieving what you are capable of
what it is you could offer the world
the stagnant progress will turn to resentment
apathy set in
and apathy turns to depression
leaving things undone that you could have achieved is a waste of talent, love, and all out disservice
for all those that could have been effected positively by your success
If your not ready yet- put this on your calendar to reconsider in 90 days.
then really consider it once you hit it on your calendar
but for now- go ahead and do the exercise and you can give yourself this disclaimer:
I am not ready for this yet, but if I were, and if this were my time…
then this… and answer the questions for the future you that IS ready.

OK TIME TO- grab a pad of paper and a pen..or your laptop
now if you are driving or biking or running this may be difficult- so I suggest listening to the podcast all the way through then
coming back to it once you are able to do this exercise. IT can be very powerful

imagine you are on that death bed- be in in a week or 50 years from now… it is going to happen,,, fast forward
what would you regret not doing when you had the chance
what you really want in your life
go back to- if you could not fail- what would you do/ want
be realistic, but also know that everything was impossible until it was done… so realistic is relative
this can be weight or health related, professional, maybe you want to pay off debt- whatever it is. Write it down.
take a good 10 minute pause to get it all down
top of mind
you know what you dream about
maybe you secretly want to move to the top of a mountain.. Or live on a farm
play dolly Parton records all day and own a goat yoga studio
if you only live once… now is your time
write down everything you think of
just cause you write it down doesn’t mean you are married to it- so just get it out of your head and on your paper for now
it doesn’t have to be pretty
you are just capturing out all your desires
brain storm, brain dump, whatever you want to call it
don’t just write down what you think you can achieve easily
write down everything you would want If there were no caps/ no restrictions/ no time limits
is there anywhere you really want to go?
is there someone you really want to reach out to
is there something you have been meaning to say
is there something you are really good at that you would want to start a side business about
or since you cant fail- a full tie business
is there a book in you waiting to come out
a song ready to be sung
a career path wanting to be explored
a child out there ready to get to know you as a mentor, or friend, or big sister, a mother?
maybe your ready to clean out a room and give it another meaningful purpose
like a sewing room, an office for your new business or a dance room
maybe you want to start a podcast and share your expertise in the world… we are ready for you.. We are listening

So you should have your goals down…
Now I want you to step into the future-
if you couldn’t fail, and it is your ideal world
what is your life like in 5 years?
pick the things you want most from your list
how is your life different?
what do you do on a typical day?
from the time you get up till you go to bed
are you at your ideal weight?
where do you live?
what are you wearing?
what’s your hair cut look like?
who do you spend your time with?
what do you spend your time doing>
how do you get around?
your new car?
how do you treat people and how do people treat you?
what feelings do you feel?
what are you achieving everyday?

So let me ask you this…. If you could dream again, and if you wanted to pick one thing from your list to focus on for now.
could you?

And also consider, if you are doing this for future you since current you is not ready=

remember (if you have kids) saying your not ready, that you will be ready when…
your never ready.
its always taking a leap of faith
everyone who ever started a business or achieved something great always says they started before they were ready… never ready
if you waited until you were ready and all the cards were aligned
you will be the one on your death bed with regrets
keep this in mind
As Tony Robbins says, When would NOW be a good time…
