It’s about the big goal in life. What is important to you from the heart? Why do you get up in the morning? What motivates you to do more than others?
This goal is our engine! The intermediate goals that we want to achieve along the way are derived from this.
To ensure that goals do not remain just words, we make sure that what is said corresponds to what is done. We don’t always take the direct path and face many distractions.
Goal-oriented means not getting distracted, even if you have to take a detour to reach the overarching goal.
Walk the Talk – Do what you say. There is a big difference between being interested in something and committing to something or someone. You can see the difference in the extra mile.
You do whatever it takes to keep your promises, even when it gets uncomfortable. Maybe the timing doesn’t fit perfectly into the plan, or it hurts a bit financially.
There are accountability partners who will help you to pull through when you find excuses and good reasons for choosing the easier way.
It’s about doing the right thing, not the easy thing. The better you know your own goal, the easier it is to make binding commitments because you know the criteria under which you are willing to do something.
The better you can formulate your expectations, the easier long-term partnerships and joint projects are.
Loyalty has a lot to do with commitment. It’s about being loyal to your values. This can also include people.
Writing down expectations help with this. In a business context, for example, there are partnerships that you enter into. You have an individual contract with each individual and the expectations were written down.
The human side is also taken into account. True to the motto: Never forget where you come from. For example, if you were introduced to a certain person with whom you do very good business, then loyalty means rewarding the matchmaker accordingly.
If you already have a team you are working with, discuss new opportunities with the team first before creating facts.
Loyalty is trust, being able to rely on someone, solving problems together. You are not only loyal to one person, but to your values and to each and every person who is important to you, to the extent of the known expectations that both agree on.
What you see is what you get. Be honest and don’t pretend to be someone else than who you are.
That also means being able to admit mistakes. Things don’t always go smoothly. There are difficult moments, painful experiences, mistakes that shouldn’t have been made, but also great and unexpected things.
Authenticity is being honest and not sweeping your potential under the carpet. Going into communication and making the other person understand why you acted the way you did.
Curiosity equals openness. Accepting things and getting to know them without a defensive attitude in order to be able to form one’s own picture.
Being curious is wanting to know what you don’t yet know and not letting the fear of growth slow you down.
Curious is doing something for a while to get a feel for what it can be like. Some things cannot be conveyed by telling, some things have to be experienced. It’s the openness when you have no better idea to trust in another person to walk a path.
It’s important to start running, even if you don’t know exactly where it’s taking you.
These are the moments that give you more and more clarity because you start to connect your dreams and goals with emotions.
