Why Should You Set Goals? (Part 1 of 2)

The big WHY

Wonder why some people could not even achieve an inch of what they dream of becoming? Blame it on pure dreaming and lack of setting goals for achieving their dreams.

Setting goals is a very significant part of success and positive accomplishments. It is like scaling a 20 feet building. And then marking early on what feet you would like to reach at this specific period.

How people usually start in setting goals

People who set goals literally create a map of their target achievements in life. They do the marking where they should begin and where to pause. Where to delve a bit, and where and when to stop.

Once this map is created, it allows the map drawer to check where he is in the scheme of things. He will see whether or not he is making some achievements that will take him closer to his goals.

One good reason

By setting goals, people will know how they are doing. As well as what they should be doing to achieve their targets or dreams in life. They will know if they can relax. They will know if they have to double their efforts. He know when he is falling short of expectations.

Proactive person

Goal setting means a person is proactive in dealing with challenges that may affect his plans. Being proactive means one is able to outline possible difficulties that may occur as well as the solutions to these difficulties.

By doing this, a person is not easily afraid when challenges occur because he is prepare to face for them. He knows they can happen and he has prepared a solution or strategy when that time comes.

Setting goals will enable people to track their progress in whatever endeavor they have set out to do. It will help people become more confident in themselves and more motivated to achieve their plans.

Please read the first part.

 

Continuation:

 

Ask: “Who is this for?”

Do you want to live a dream to gain approval from others? Do you want to do it because YOU really want it for yourself? Your dream doesn’t need anyone else’s approval, it is all about YOUR life, not theirs.

Wanting approval for a dream poses a threat: What if others don’t approve? Do you make them happy or yourself happy? Have a dream because it is something you truly want to do; something that is important and gives meaning to your life because you deem it so.

Obviously, approval from others is nice. But if others don’t approve of the lifestyle you choose, then don’t let it make a difference to you

Have the courage to be yourself and live the life you deem appropriate and not the life others deem fit for you.

Your dream is something special

It should excite you, fill you with a burning passion and a determination to achieve it. If you’re lukewarm about it then chances are you won’t give it your best shot.

It should be something that you absolutely, definitely and positively HAVE to achieve. Failing to achieve it simply isn’t an option because it will make you seriously miserable and unhappy if you don’t get what you want.

It is vital that you have this commitment to your dream because a wishy-washy approach just won’t cut the mustard. Think. Plan. Write it all down. Set goals. Then take action each and every day to take you closer to your dream.

Time for me to sign off. Please don’t just read this article and then move on to something else. TAKE ACTION. Use the tips to help you identify what it is you want from life.

“What, exactly, do you want to do with your life?”
