Focusing On the Ends versus the Means

The most common mistakes committed by most individuals while using the Law of Attraction is to confuse the end goals with the means used to achieve the end goals.

Tapping In

End goals are essentially outcomes that a person is not willing to compromise with and the end goals often describe exactly what the person wants. On the other hand, mean goals are essentially the different paths and methods used to achieve the end goals.

For example, if you wish to attend the concert of your favorite music group this is an end goal. Attending the concert of your favorite music group defines the outcome. Whether you want to be at the concert in person so that you can take maximum enjoyment out of the experience or you watch the concert on television or on the Internet defines the mean goals. Even if the radio station is providing a contest in which you can win tickets to attend the concert and you decide you wish to win the contest this does not define your end goal rather it is the mean goal. The tickets provided by the radio station through the contest is one of the ways you can attend the concert which is your end goal.

Many times individuals find that they are blocked on the part of achieving their end goals. This is because they have not been able to visualize the outcomes properly in their mind or they have become confused between the mean goals and the end goals. Thus to be able to achieve success or any outcome in your life at a faster pace you must be able to concentrate on the end instead of the means. Moreover, since the end goals shall remain constant, it is best to concentrate on them and change your mean goals to achieve the end goals.

By concentrating only on the end goals you will be able to revise the mean goals according to your current situation and this strategy will allow you to achieve your final outcomes at a faster pace. Treating the end goals and mean goals in the same way will cause unnecessary frustration and confusion in your mind which often results in the misuse of the Law of Attraction. Moreover, it might cause you to become attached to the mean goals which do not matter in the long run and you will lose concentration on your end goals.

Thus, it is important to clarify your mean goals and end goals to prevent confusion. You can also make your mean goals quite specific and they will help you achieve your end goals. However, at all times your end goals must be the focus of your concentration. Changing the mean goals to achieve your end goals will make you feel unstoppable in pursuing the end goals and will help you in building courage. This type of attitude will also help you look at the bigger picture to achieve your end goals as soon as possible.
