Did you know, the more you talk out loud about your goals, the less likely you are to achieve them? There’s science behind it – which you can read here if you’re interested in the nitty gritty.
Basically, goals help you identify your identity. Once you’ve articulated the goals you intend to achieve to those around you, you’ve not only assisted in creating an identity of yourself in their mind, but you’ve also given yourself a false sense of accomplishment.
Setting quiet goals is kind of exciting. You walk around with the knowledge that you are bettering yourself on the down-low. You get to live life with an exciting, amazing secret that no one knows. It creates a fire within you, and peeks out in secret smiles and closed-book “To Do” lists.
The best part? Once you’ve reached a quiet goal, it seems much more honest to your true self. You’ve created your identity based on your terms. You get to create the “you” you’ve always dreamed of.
To Quiet Goals in this New Year, my friends.
