The Goal Beside Your Goal

We often confuse a goal with an end-result and when we do, we fail and get discouraged. Let me take the simple example of weight loss to illustrate this point: We often set a weight loss goal for ourselves; so and so many kilos or pounds, when really weight loss is a result of reaching a totally different goal, namely to eat less and exercise more. The goal is in the action, the rest is merely an end-resulting consequence. Always focus on action goals to take you to where you want to go.
