Sea, mist and clarity
What you will get: Understanding of the importance of clarity
“It rolls in slowly, masking everything it touches with an eerie cold…”
And as it engulfs all in its path, it covers it with a blanket of confusion.
What am I talking about?
My house is at the side of an open harbour, and so I often find myself observing the sea mist as it rolls in from the Altantic Ocean, smothering the view in a wall of cloud.
And that got me thinking….
So many people live their lives under this blanket of cloud and confusion.
Most people have dreams.
Most people want a more freedom and choice.
Most people want a job that makes their heart sing.
And most people fail to get any of the above.
And one of the reasons why they fail to get it is the sea mist that surrounds them.
As my colleague Peter Thomson once told me,
“Resistance is created through lack of Clarity.”
So until you remove the sea mist from your life and gain clarity on exactly where you want to go and why you want to go there, don’t be surprised if you find you don’t get there!
Clarity on your destination gives you a target. It enables you to see, feel and sense what the final outcome looks like. And once you have created that clear destination, you just need to fill in the practical steps to get there.
Add to this your…
…and the mist starts to clear as you sail through it to towards the sunny horizon.
So general goals like, “I want to earn more money” and pretty useless as they are clouded in sea mist. It is not a clear goal.
But a goal like, “”I want to make €75,000 in the financial year 2016-2017,” is clear.
Then add to this goal a clear reason why you want to achieve that goal, such as “So I can spend more time with my family, buy my parents the new car they always wanted and donate €5,000 to Save the Children for their Africa Project”.
Now the mist has cleared.
Now you can focus.
Now you have a clear destination.
I’m off to gain even further clarity on my goals for the next year.
How about you?
