Yesterdays vlog I talked about a variety of things. But one topic was a trait that sets the truly success apart from the rest. This was the simple concept of keeping an eye on the bullseye.
That conversation was in response to an article that I read from Benjamin Hardy you can read here about 2 mental shifts. The article really got me thinking about what I’d like to do moving forward and what exactly I need to be doing with this journey.
And all I have to say is this:
Keep Your Eye On The Bullseye
Seriously, keep your eye on the bullseye of your goals. I only scratched the surface when I was talking about the dart analogy in my video. True many people may settle with hitting the target no matter where it lands. However I think more and more now that that alone isn’t enough. Sure that might be great for some people and I won’t deny people that that doesn’t lead to a successful life. If success for you is being able to provide for people you care in life then that’s what it is.
But for myself, I’d like to achieve something higher, to be someone better. And I can imagine those reading these articles wish the same thing as well. They’d like to go beyond the first mental shift that Benjamin was talking about. That shift being taking responsibility for our actions. Instead some of us strive to make the second shift, where we realize it’s not all about us, but about those around us. That our success stems from the success of those we affect.
Grow And Collaborate With Others
I don’t claim to know how to achieve that shift, but I believe it boils down to the willingness to collaborate with others. To keep your eye on the bullseye is to pay attention to the target that’s on everyones radar as well and to start caring about that.
In a society where we get wrapped up in politics (whether government or within the places we work), it seems more and more people are fixated on themselves. But I encourage you, if you do want to achieve greatness, start by changing how you approach those cultures and even in your side-businesses and full on businesses. Together we are able to achieve a lot.
All we need to do is focus on one another’s targets.
To your growth!
