Have you ever set a goal for yourself only to realize a few weeks later that you had completely forgotten about it? Or did you give it a try then quit because it was going to take a dedicated effort to accomplish, or your first attempts failed? Sometimes we set a goal, but it never takes hold and just sort of disappears. We conveniently forget about it until the reason for it shows up again. You know; the dreaded new year's eve resolution cycle. Why does this happen? Why do we do these things to ourselves, set goals then beat ourselves up for not following through? There may be many excuses, but there are really only a few reasons. Among them are self-worth issues, confidence, and fear of failure/success. Or sometimes, it's as simple as the lack of a credible plan. Clearing the Path is a simple approach that can actually help you accomplish your goal. Here's how: A) Clearly state your goal. B) Devise a believable plan to achieve it. C) Determine the potential "hows" and "whys" you could fail to achieve it (you will learn some simple techniques of self-interrogation to do this.) D) Revise your plan to anticipate and work through any possible reason you could imagine that would cause you to fail, lose interest, or give up. E) Set your revised plan of action into motion. F) Meet regularly with others who will support you by holding you accountable to your action plan, give you constructive feedback couched in positive terms, and ask you to do the same for them. Some philosophies and "new age" teachings insist we first develop the motivation before taking on a task. Indian Country takes a different approach: Start a thing no matter how or what you are feeling, and the doing of it will generate the motivation you need to carry it through to a successful completion. This is a radically different mindset for many, but one that actually works. After completing this workshop, four weekly meetings will be available which are intended to instill in you the accountability necessary for you to follow through and actually bring about the change you seek. Initial tuition for this workshop is $65. The four weekly meetings that follow are by donation, with a $10 minimum.
