Means Goals Versus End Goals

  • End goals are the beautiful, exciting rewards of being human on planet Earth. End goals speak to your soul. They bring you joy in and of themselves, not because they confer any outward label, standard, or value attached by society.
  • Means goals are the things that society tells us we need to have in place to get to happiness. Almost everything I wrote down as a goal was actually a means to an end, not an end in itself.

MODELS OF REALITY

  1. Create a manifesto that summary what you’re seeking to bring to the world, your beliefs and values, and how you operate. Add this to your website if you have one. Remember to share the ?why of what you do.
  2. Find your big why. Throw out the dispassionate corporatespeak. Talking about your beliefs, your values, your vision for the world will engage people’s emotions, which is how they make decisions.
  3. Craft a Vivid Vision and make it public. Speak three years into the future. Don't worry if you’re currently small or operating from a warehouse. Talk about the future as if it’s happening now.

I read this book in the year 2018 when I stumbled upon an ESL and a self-improvement mentor by working for him as his content writer for his blogs, providing show notes for his podcast and rewriting his English as a second language teaching materials. Despite Vishen Lakhiani, the founder of Mindvalley, a self - development publishing company and hosting Awesomeness Fest event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia is controversial man, but his book did make some sense to think about conventional thoughts that we were taught since we were growing up.
