Are Your Goals Worth It?

July 5, 2017 // R. Shawn McBride // No Comments »

This might make you stop and think. It did me.

I recently heard a speech by John Assaraf – author, entrepreneur, and one of the featured experts in the documentary “The Secret.” In the speech, he asked: “Are your goals worth trading your life for?”

That gives a fascinating perspective into our goals and our dreams. In The 3 Laws of Empowerment, I talk about planning to get to where you want to go, and building a dream you really want to accomplish.

Jon takes it a step further and says, “Is what you’re accomplishing big enough, bold enough, worthy enough of giving your life for?” Because that’s what you’re doing when you’re building these dreams, when you’re building the future, when you’re getting to the places you want to go. You’re giving your time on earth and your energy for your goals. Are those goals truly worthy? It gives you a reason to stop, pause and think about it.

Have you built the right plans? Are the plans worthy of giving your entire life and your human energy to get there? Why? Think about it. Join us in the comments below and let us know about your experience. What do you think about trading your life for your outcomes?
