Why Your Actions Must Align with Your Goals

What You Need To Know About Action and Alignment

Are your actions in alignment with what you say you want?

What happens when your wheels are out of alignment on your car? When you let go of the wheel, you veer off in the wrong direction—you get off course. When you’re out of alignment, it requires constant vigilance to stay on course—hands always on the wheel (white-knuckling it—pure will power).

Why is this important? When your action is out of alignment, it’s tough to reach your goals.

There are three ways you can be out of alignment:

  • Your words support your goals but your actions do not
  • Your actions support your goals but your words do not
  • Your words and actions match but they’re not headed in the direction you want to do
