“As a public servant and a family man, Dennis Gronquist was one of a kind. I was proud to call him my friend, and I am deeply saddened to learn of his passing.

7. Setting the Path to Your Future

compass.roseSince the beginning of the year, we have encouraged you to examine the way you look at the world, and make some decisions about how you want to be. So, let’s continue the discussion with a little goal-setting to see us through uncertain times.

If you have decided that your locus of control comes from within you (and we hope you have), then you know you have the power to change your life. You do not need to be battered by the “storm” of bad news coming your way.

If you have decided that you want to believe the future is one of great possibilities, then you know you have given yourself the freedom to choose a path for yourself.

If you have decided that you would really prefer to be an optimist, then you are ready to take each situation as it comes, confident in the knowledge that life will improve, that setbacks are only temporary, and you want a happy, fulfilled life.

If you have chosen to take personal accountability, then you are ready to look the world in the eye and say, “These are my decisions and I stand by them. I am ready to take the consequences for my actions and decisions.”

So, what comes next? Figure out where you are, so that you understand Current Reality. Decide where you want to be, with a powerful Vision that includes Technicolor and 3-D visuals and earthshaking SurroundSound. Give yourself an irresistible picture that draws you! Then start setting goals to get you to your Vision. Break down the path to your Vision into smaller goals, ones that you can see without causing you to back off from your ultimate Goal. Focus on what you want, and shut out the distractions that cause you to lose your focus. If your purpose is just, achievement is within your grasp.

And one more piece: Keep your self-talk – that constant stream of conversation you have with yourself – positive and reinforcing. Your self-talk will keep the pictures you have of your future front and center in your mind. The great part about all of this is that it works not only for individuals, but for teams, departments, organizations, countries, and the entire world. ~ The Pacific Institute
