What kind of mindset will help achieve goals in life?
If you want to achieve your goals in life, you must pay an enormous amount of attention and put an unwavering focus on the process rather than obsessing over the goal in the first place.
Imagine an apple tree.
If fetching an apple is your goal, will thinking or obsessing about it over and over again help you get one. It certainly won’t. Rather, you need to put soil, water, manure and seed together under sunlight.
None of which really looks like an apple, yet it miraculously works together to create one.
Nature works exactly like that. The process doesn’t resemble the goal, yet the process only works towards achieving the goal.
Once you decide on your goal, shift your attention to the process instead.
To bear fruit or, in other words, to achieve your goals, all you need to do is — simply take care of the process.
You don’t even have to think much about your goal. You’ll simply bear fruit as a natural consequence of that complex processor mechanism.
That’s why it is essential to be process-oriented rather than be goal-oriented.
