Setting goals is the Holy Grail of your future.
It's what will make you better than you are today – but only if you actually get yourself to set those goals in the first place. To set the proper amount of weight on your shoulders, however, you need to first take a look at where you're going and how powerful the journey is that lies ahead.
You see, setting goals is the difference between getting nothing done and achieving something massive. Our goal here is not simply for you to tell us how many people you reached on Facebook or how many words you wrote for your blog post – but for you to see if there's any way your life can be improved by making this change.
Goals are what help you make progress in your life, even if you're not sure where you're going. When you set big goals, you can't help but move forward. As you make progress toward those goals, people will notice and want to support you more.
Why do we set goals?
This is why We set goals:
Having clarity for myself is my main motivation for setting objectives. I'm outlining my objectives to make it clear what it is that I desire from life. What are the goals that I have for my life? I'm going to work for what, exactly? I go to work for what purpose?
To put food on the table is the fundamental response, as is covering the costs. You're going to be let down if your sole motivation for working is to support yourself. If the primary motivation for going to work is to pay the bills, you will eventually lose interest in and motivation for your job. You won't be motivated to work hard if all it does is provide you with food and shelter.
2. A target to aim for
We need a goal. An object to hit is a target. We're not happy with where we are because an objective is something to work towards. Our objectives compel us to examine what we're not happy with and make adjustments.
A goal is necessary. A target is something to hit. Because a target is something to strive for, we are not satisfied with where we are right now. Our goals compel us to look at what we're not satisfied with and make changes.
We act according to our objectives. What we're going to do today is motivated by my objectives and aims. Who we call, interact with, and spend time with today is determined by our goals and objectives.
Accountability results from our goals. All leaders frequently discuss the importance of accountability. How can you do something significant if you can't hold yourself responsible?
Why do we give up on our goals? Two things are at play here: our potential and the people in our lives. What if there were four things that kept you from your goals?
First, We believe that giving up is a result of feeling defeated. People tend to give up when they are feeling disheartened.
Two, people abandon their ambitions because they experience no success along the road. Along the road, you must be successful. We cannot stress this more. Progress is essential. Your life must be successful. Not because you require a larger home, vehicle, sum of money, or object to flaunt. You must succeed because accomplishments and wins motivate us to keep trying new things.
Three, people give up because they don't surround themselves with the correct people. They are spending time with those who exhort them to give up on their objectives. Go tell your family, friends, and those you love the most about your aspirations. Do they intend to tell you that you don't need to do all that or do they intend to assist and encourage you?
Four, people give up on their objectives because they accept and have justified doing so. You stop trying to improve the quality of your life the moment you realise leaving makes sense.
People give up on their goals because they don't know when to quit. They keep pushing for it and pushing for it, but eventually they just stop. The reason is because people underestimate the time or money required, or overestimate the difficulty.
We have to understand that it doesn't matter what you do, even if you work incredibly hard at something, there's someone out there who can do it better than you. That person's going to be somebody else—but it doesn't mean you have to give up on your dreams and your goals and your ambitions.
