Why do we set goals?
If you are asking yourself why should I set goals, the answer is: setting goals is the first step of achieving them and getting to the top of the ladder.
Somewhere you have to start, don’t let fear keep you from setting goals and don’t let your doubts get on your way.
Get ready to start and remember that your way is full of ups and downs.
How to set goals?
Here are some steps that will help you to set your goals:
1- Write down your goals on a piece of paper
By writing them down, something powerful happens, you become a creator and things become to manifest.
Besides that, putting this paper in front of you, let’s say on a vision board, will keep you motivated, determined, and will give you the strength to work harder to achieve them.
2- Describe each goal with details
Don’t be general while writing your goals, be specific and clear as much as you can.
For example, what exactly do you want to achieve?
- Health: Do you want to lose weight, or start working out?
- Emotional health: Do you want to be happier, be less stressed?
- Relationships: Do you want to find your true love? Are you looking for more friends?
- Business or career: Do you want to change your job? Do you want to get a promotion?
- Financial situation: How much money do you want to earn? Do you want more savings?
3- Set a goal that you never achieved before
To achieve goals you’ve never achieved before, you need to start doing things you’ve never done before. Therefore, start in your mindset, try to focus on what you want instead of wasting your energy on fear to start.
Set goals you’ve never achieve will make you excited and enthusiastic to follow them.
The number one mistake that people make when setting their goals is that they look at their present circumstances like their bank account or the amount of business they have coming in or their job.
That means they allow all of the present situations or their past history to affect what they can do today or tomorrow!
4- Set a goal you don’t know how to achieve
Because if you know how to achieve them you won’t call them goals.
5- Change your way of thinking
After setting goals here is the most important step to follow or should do, You have to change the way you think.
If you think or believe that you don’t deserve success or that you don’t work hard you will not achieve your goal.
Your goals become true because as the law of attraction, what you think you become.
6- changing your attitude
How to set goals, means that you need to change your attitude or habits too.
Let’s say that you want to be a writer, in order to achieve this goal, you have to start reading first.
“The secret of your success is determined by your daily agenda. It all comes down to what you do today.”
-John C. Maxwell
Doing the thing in the right order every single day so you have to develop for every one of your goals how specifically are you going to achieve them, that is what -Jeff Keller said:
“A positive attitude is a person’s passport to a better tomorrow”.
7- Create a Visual Picture
Visual picture and an affirmation for each goal mean imaging yourself having and achieving your goals already and using your daily positive affirmation to complete your visualisation to attract what you want.
You can do it every time you want, especially every morning when you get up and every night before you sleep, and it will work like magic.
“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.”
– Albert Einstein
A story about achieving your goals
Here’s a story about a farmer that used setting goals to achieve what he wants.
A Farmer’s Lesson In Life
A farmer won the first prize at the country fair for his huge radish that was the exact shape and size of a quart of a milk bottle. Many were curious as to how the farmer was able to grow this radish that was the exact shape of a milk bottle.
Finally, one gentleman went up to the farmer and asked the question. The farmer replied, “It was easy. I got the seed growing and then I put it into the milk bottle. It had nowhere else to go.”- Catherine Pulsifer
Our lives are shaped by the kind of circumstances we put ourselves in, the people that we allow to influence us, and the goals we give ourselves.
If you want to go for groceries you will write a list of what you need, right?
It’s simple but helpful even though it’s just a list, it’s the same thing in life, putting the things you want to accomplish and your goals in a list makes them seem easier to reach. also writing them down makes you focus on what you really want.
