Setting Goals: Why They Matter

Goals are important at all stages of your life. They give you a feeling of happiness and satisfaction when you achieve them, and a feeling of enthusiasm and excitement when you are about to achieve them. They are also important for improving many other aspects of your life: your self-image, self-confidence, self-esteem, and overall happiness. Not only do they improve your well-being, but they also improve you as a person. They increase your abilities, strengthen your strengths and help you overcome your weaknesses, and also importantly, they make you forget about yourself and your everyday problems. When you’re busy trying to achieve your goals, you’re too busy to worry about personal problems.

The first thing you have to do is seriously think about what your goals are. Be realistic, but don’t be afraid to shoot too high. Maybe it’s to earn a certain amount of money, or to become an accomplished athlete or a successful musician. Whatever it is, fix it firmly in your mind, then write it down. It is also important at this stage to imagine yourself achieving it. This helps create a deep desire within you to achieve it, which is important. Let it become a burning desire.

Writing down your goal is the first step, but of course you also need to set up a program to achieve it, and you have to write it down as well. Ultimately, you must have a plan, and it must be detailed. Set it up so you know what you’re going to do each day and what you’ll accomplish each week and each month.

Finally, you have to give yourself a time limit. It is not good to work towards your goal without having any idea when it will be achieved. You have to say, “I’ll get it done by May 1,” or whatever date you decide. Again, be realistic, so you don’t feel disappointed if you don’t make it. If your goal is to lose, say, 30 pounds, then set a goal of losing 10 pounds per month for three months.

Many people prefer to have milestones or short-term goals along their path to the ultimate goal, and this is a good idea. For example, if your goal is to run a mile in 4:20, start with a goal of five minutes, then try to improve to 4:40 over the next six months and 4:20 over the next six months. This will give you a sense of accomplishment as you reach each of your short-term goals, and help you stay on track.

One of the problems with goals is that many people eventually give up. For a goal to make sense you must take it seriously, very seriously. This means that you must have determination, and one of the best ways to maintain this determination is to develop tremendous enthusiasm and enthusiasm for what you are doing. Don’t let it become a chore; don’t let it get boring. A good way to ensure you do this is to keep your eye on the end goal.

Persistence is the key; don’t let anything stop you and keep telling yourself that you will never give up until you have achieved what you want. Everyone has disappointments when they start down a path like this, but don’t let them get to you. Don’t let them get in your way. Success is possible if you stick with it.
