Why should you set goals

Everyone in this world wants to be successful. But, being successful means different things to different people. My goal is to help you set a goal and without that clear goal in my mind, i wont be reaching a conclusion to this article. If i achieve it, i am successful. The point i am trying to make is setting a goal you will never know if you are successful.

Take example of an aircraft. The goal of the aircraft it to reach its destination. Without a goal, the pilot and the passenger wont reach anywhere. The main goal of the pilot is to make sure that the aircraft is guided and operated correctly to reach its goal. The pilot keeps track of things to see if it is flying the right direction, if not, he sets it right.

Similarly, you need to have goals in our life and keep a check on our progress just like the pilot. You might not always succeed, guess what, quitting is not an option, you keep trying different things till you succeed in achieving your goals.

How to set a goals and achieve it

Be Specific

You should know the outcome of whatever you are doing before starting it. It will help you tremendously. You are going to meet your friend, what is the expected outcome of it? You want to have fun or to make him feel special or you just want to hangout and relax. Guess what, set an outcome before meeting your friend and focus on the outcome, you will end up having a very good time.

When you set a goal, you should be very specific about the expected outcome. Let us say that you want to make more money. Your goal should not be "i want to make so much money" or " i want to make enough money to enjoy life". Rather, your goal should say " i would like to make $1,000,000". 

But that's not it, it is just half job done. You will now have to set a target date to achieve your goal. This will create a sense of emergency and you will act on it automatically. So, two parts to the goals: Being specific and setting a target.

TIP: If your goal is too big, break it down into pieces. Example, if you want to become a graphics designer, your goal should be broken down to learning individual software with its own target get, eg. Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator etc.. Then under Adobe Photoshop, you will need to have certain goals, eg. mastering pen tool, master layers etc.

Burning desire

You have set a goal, but we all have set goals before and failed miserably at achieving it, there is no shying away from this fact. The top most reason people fail is, either they don't have goals or they don't act on their goals.

Having a burning desire to achieve your goal is the key part towards your success. You should be thinking of your goal throughout the day, obsessed with its thoughts. By doing so, your subconscious mind will start giving you ideas, suggestion and the energy to work towards achieving your goal. As soon you get some ideas, act on it. TAKE ACTION immediately. Without actions, goals don't mean anything. 

It will be like, watching fitness videos and not exercising. You wont get results without acting upon the ideas.

Don't fear, face it

Success comes to those who are success conscious and failure comes to those who are failure conscious. Agree or not, people fail due to focusing on the possibilities to fail. Condition your mind to think of the possibilities to succeed. It is not easy and it is a continuous process. Guard your thoughts and do not allow negativity to enter your mind.

You will not always succeed. Guess what, you need to try another approach, if you fail, try another approach and you should continue trying different approach till you succeed. All the successful people have failed miserably before being successful, the failures they faced were essential part of their success.

Don't fear failure, face it.

Acting upon an idea, you will have 2 possible outcomes, either you succeed or you fail. But if you don't act you will definitely FAIL. 

Now, before moving on to something else, take a notebook and write what is your goal and set a target date. Kindle the fire in you, have the burning desire to achieve your goal and when faced with failure, don't fear it, face it.

Summary

  • Without goal, you are lost. Example of Pilot, aircraft and passengers.
  • Being specific: What do you need and by when do you intend to achieve it.
  • Think of your goal all the time and when you get an idea, act immediately.
  • Failure brings seeds of success, don't fear it, face it.

    I know that goal setting helps in progress (success), I have set this goals for these two years hoping to achieve my goals. 

    Your post has been of more encouragement to me especially suggesting that I should put down any thought that comes to my mind while thinking of my goals daily. 

    I got it, and I will try to put it in action. Hopefully it will bring a turn around to   my success. 

    Is there any other way to succeed you did not mention in this your post?

    Thanks,

      Thanks Bibian… yes there is a very important thing, i will soon write a post about it. Realizing why we fail to succeed with goals (procrastinating) and learning to fix it will help a lot. Setting a goal is just half the battle. 

      All the best 🙂
