As I thought about his, I realized that this could happen in our professional and personal lives as well. We may think we are aiming for our goals. However, if we consistently miss our goals, then something is wrong.
Remember, there is no reality, only perception. Our perception may be that we are aiming for our goals, but if the reality is that we are missing our goals, our aim may be off.
The most common correction is to change how or where we are aiming.
When I change how I am aiming for the pin, the ball goes toward the pin. I have found that this is true in life, too. There have been times when no matter how hard I try, I cannot reach a goal. When I stop and analyze the situation, and how or where I am aiming, often I can then reach the goal.
If you are not meeting a professional or personal goal, stop and analyze how and where you are aiming. You may have more success if you modify your aim. Where you think you are aiming may not be where you are actually aiming. It is the reality and perception concept again!
