Once You Make a Decision, the Universe Conspires to Make It Happen – Ralph Waldo Emerson

Goal setting impacts your mindset and your eventual results. Even the simplest goals can impact daily outcomes.  Often we find ourselves waiting for the path to illuminate itself.  If we are overly optimistic or naïve we hold on to the belief that “things will work out” or “if it’s meant to be, it will happen.”  Nothing happens through inaction.  Without action you can become like a rudderless vessel on the open ocean.

In order to achieve your objectives you must set a course.  If the objectives are too overwhelming, then simple intermediate goals should be envisioned and mapped out.  Without them you will never achieve the intended result.  Set goals every day; try writing them down. It gives them life and a sense of importance.  Writing them also has the ability to hold you accountable for their outcomes.

The laws of science tell us that action begets reaction and when it comes to your dreams and goals, acting on them is really the only way to ensure that you achieve your goals.  Talking about them with others may help, but they can’t do it for you.  It still requires action on your part.  Reading about how others did it may help to motivate and impress the possibility upon you, but it still requires you to act.

Emerson’s quote is about the energy created through momentum.  This momentum requires action on your part and goal setting helps define the path.  When you have taken the time to act on your goals and realized the usefulness of charting a course, you set an example for others to follow.  Be the example and help the universe conspire to propel you to greatness.
