5 Questions to Ask Before Committing to a Goal by Todd Alan


Do you ever feel like you’re suffering from a lack of clarity? Maybe you have plenty of ideas but kind of halfway go at something only to give up on the project later?

We get stuck because we haven’t truly decided what we want to do.

It happens to me too. Sometimes I get a fear of making something happen; it’s a commitment issue. I’ll ask myself:

Is this really what I want? Do I really want to commit to this?

And the big one: Is this going to change my reality?

You see, many of us can create a vision, but it’s going to radically change our reality…and we don’t like that.

So we have to create a clear vision of what our goals look like with us IN it. This is how we get unstuck and get serious about our commitments.

One way to do this is to take your visualized goal or idea and ask yourself these 5 questions to see if it’s worth your time and energy:

1. Does this dream enliven me? Am I charged? Energized?
2. Is this dream in alignment with what I believe?
3. Do I need help from a Higher Power to make this dream come true? (Which is a big consideration if you don’t have a belief system.)
4. Will this require me to grow into more of my true self?
5. Will this dream help others?

If you can answer yes to all these questions, then it’s a goal deserving of your commitment. If it’s no, you need to take another look.
