Setting Goals and Keeping Them
All throughout our life we set goals. We take baby steps on the way to the giant leap of success. Goals are an important part of your personal growth. Goals give you a direction toward the future. When you set goals for yourself, you are setting yourself up for success.
There are five things to do in order to succeed at the goals you set for yourself. Goals are easy to set, but sometimes difficult to meet. When you set your goals, you have to stick with it and make it happen. Setting attainable goals is easy when you try.
Grab the bull by the horns-
Once you set your goals, you have to go for it. When you grab the bull by the horns, you also grab your goals and nobody can stop you but yourself. Take charge of your life by taking charge of your goals. You have to realize goals are only attainable when you take charge and hold on to them. When you lose focus and direction, it is easy to lose your goals as well. Grab the bull by the horns and hold on tight, don't lose sight of what you want out of life. Make it happen by taking charge.
Organize your goals-
Your goals cannot just float around in the air or in your mind. You have to organize your goals to realize your goals. When you put your goals down on paper, it makes it easy to visualize what you want and why you want it. Start with small goals within a short period of time. Short term goals are easier to achieve. Once you know what you want, list your long term goals. These are things you want for the rest of your life. Organize your goals within specific time so you can make a difference in your personal growth.
Accept you can succeed-
Once you visualize your goals, you have to accept you can succeed. Failure is not an option when you set achievable goals. By accepting success, you are accepting your future. You have to realize that your goals are an important part of your success. Goals are the keys to unlocking your success. If you don't think you can succeed, then you will fail. It is easier to fail when you keep the door to your success closed. A closed door will stop you from achieving your goals. If you accept you can succeed, then the door will open to your future.
Learn to succeed-
When you set goals, you must also learn to succeed. Goals have a purpose and teach you something. It does not matter if your goal is small or big, when you set your goal, you need know its purpose. Why are you setting goals? What do you hope to achieve? When do you want to accomplish your goals? All of this does not matter unless you learn to succeed. If you are used to failure, success can be difficult to learn. However, when you learn to succeed, you can make an A for achievement instead of an F for failure.
Set your mind to success-
Your mind is like an alarm clock. If you have it set to failure, then you will keep hitting the snooze button. If you set your mind to success, you will want to wake up early everyday. When you set goals, you are setting your alarm clock either to failure or success. It is your choice. Only you can decide what setting your life is on. Are you going to keep hitting the snooze button for failure or are you going to set your mind to success? Never let your alarm clock stay in snooze mode - wake up to success everyday.
Setting goals for personal growth is vital for personal achievement. If you do not try to succeed, you will only fail. When you set your goals, failure cannot become an option. You have to grab the bull by the horns and take charge of your success. You have to organize your goals so you can visualize your success. You have to accept that you can succeed and realize your success. You have to learn to succeed and receive A+ grades in success. You have to set your mind to success and wake up everyday to success.
Whatever goals you set for yourself today, remember none are too big or too small to unlock the door to personal growth and success. Go for it! Overcome it! Achieve it! Succeed!
This is one of the #1 most comprehensive Psychology Books ever written, and it's free on Kindle (Get a copy, because it's like a Masters Degree wrapped-up into a single book). However, I recommend that you upgrade to the Print edition, because that copy comes with images.
