There is an easy way to reaching your set goals.
A goal can be termed as a desired result or possible outcome that an individual envisions, plans and commits to himself to achieve.
There are many pitfalls that come our way if we start to set a goal. First and foremost, we can look at the lack of desire as the number one reason why people fail from reaching their set goal.
How strongly do we desire this goal we have set for ourselves? Is it a mere wish we think we can do away with, or it is a concrete desire we cannot live without?
The earlier we are able to classify the kinds of goals we have, the clearer it would be for us to appreciate them.
We have to seek to understand the goal we have. Is it a short term goal or a long term goal? A short term goal is not complex in detail however a long term goal is complex in detail.
When planning on a short term goal, you desire to reach those goals in a few days, or say, a few weeks. For example, when we put some money down for an online course we are going to be taking in a month’s time, we are talking about a short term goal.
We have a hope and a realization that the online program is not going to be suspended, and also our funds are going to be available.
Planning short term goals are quite easy to do. The success or failure of the goal is highly predictable. When we compare this to a long term goal the case is different.
We can consider a long term goal in this example; planning to establish a personal restaurant in two years’ time. Conditions for the success or failure are not easy to predict from today.
For instance, the funds can be used to build a grocery shop instead. Currently, you might have a strong belief to start a restaurant business within two years.
What you might have failed to realize is that you have a core belief to be an entrepreneur. This call can make you build a grocery store instead. Goals formulated over a two-year period is never the same as goals formulated over a month period.
If we want to reach a personal goal, we also have to possess the capacity to see internally. Are we having the skills and talents needed for the execution of that goal available naturally? If not, we have to set goals that conform to our natural skills and capabilities.
We can only thrive in success when we apply our attention and funds to activities we have a natural endowment over. Certain areas of business are not meant for us to go into.
But we can only appreciate what we have when we look internally. When we look inwardly, we would realize that we have inadequately used our talents and skills.
We should now refocus our energies to be used in the right fashion.
This way, results on our goals are going to be astounding. We would be able to achieve whatever we set our minds to do, this is because we have the keys ready and available in our hands.
Next, we have to see externally. What are people saying about us. Are their words true words of encouragement, or they are harsh words that do not inspire us at all?
A friend who stands afar off would be able to see certain actions we may be lacking off, which we need. Their words would be words of inspiration, and we can rely on them to become better people. We would pursue our goals with positivity, believing that the good forces of the universe would be in our favor.
To set your goals right, you have to be bold to dream big. Dreaming big expands our goals, and is usually set on long-term goals. They are set on long-term goals because they are difficult to predict and can be expanded year by year.
We have to dream big. We have to challenge ourselves that what we have set our minds to do is achievable. Our budget goals must also stretch us. We must not be lackadaisical, settling for the average.
Mediocrity is a canker that prevents us from making giant leaps in life. We can push ourselves hard to set high goals for ourselves. This is because even if we are not able to achieve it, we would have pushed ourselves hard to fulfill something worthwhile.
Dreaming big is good practice to do. It helps us to be on our feet at all times.
Ultimately, we must apply specificity to whatever dream we have envisioned for ourselves. Many goals can be set, but if there is a lack of specificity nothing is going to be achieved.
Being specific with regard to a goal is the life blood needed to bring the goal into existence. Details create life on a goal. For example, if we plan to go for jogging in the morning, we must not set shallow goals like, I want to jog.
We must say I am going to jog from 5:30 am to 6:30 am, I am doing this each day of the week, and I am using my phone to check the number of kilometers I am successful to cover. That is detail.
This is what being specific is about. When you miss a day of jogging, you would be alert that something is wrong. You can soon get back on track. Also, you would be able to estimate your speed and endurance, as well as track your improvement.
No matter the kind of goal you want to fulfill, being specific is like achieving half way the goal. Specificity opens the mind to understand the issues involved with the goal.
It prevents negative imaginations from showing up your way.
This is what you need to reach your set goals. Achieving personal goals calls for endurance and staying power. If we are able to remain committed to our goals there would be no hurdle we would not be able to cross.
Barriers would also be cut short from our lives, because we have the attitude of good wellness existing in our life.
