SETTING GOALS – WHAT EXPERTS ARE SAYING ABOUT GOAL SETTING?
Hello there… 🙂
Do you set goals in life?
Goal setting in a broad terms that refers to the process of deciding on what you want, planning how to get it, and then working towards the achieving it within a given period of time…yes.
This is a way of achieving a sense of direction. You see, if you have big goals they motivate you, they stimulate you, the excite you. If you have no goals, you will just keep on going round the circle. Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement.
If you have big goals, and the more you work on the goals and the more you feel yourself progressing towards them, the better you feel. The more positive you feel. The more momentum you develop to work on them whatever the setbacks. You become unstoppable. Life without goals is like a race with no finish line; you’re just running to nowhere.
Why Set Goals?
Personally before I discovered the secrete behind GOAL SETTING I used to think that working hard without applying all the rules would make me successful. When that turned out to be patently untrue, I lost interest and looked for an easy way to make business survive rather than shine. There wasn’t (or didn’t seem to be) one.
It was until I discovered the importance of goal setting that my business started spitting some cash. I would honestly say that goal setting combined with good plans, hard work and persistence ensures success of any dream in life…!!!
The most dependable way to keep yourself positive and happy and motivated is to think about your goals. And work towards your goals every single day. Because when you work progressively step by step towards something that is important to you, you feel better and better and you start getting the results and the results start to motivate you to go forward. 80-90% of unhappiness in our society today is people who don’t have goals. Meet any unhappy person and ask them if they have goals. Most people don’t have goals. The moment they have goals and then they start to move forward.
Do People really set Goals In Life?
I did some survey on this topic last week and these are some of the results:
45% of people have goals but haven’t written them down.20% of them did not have a goal. The remaining 35% some had tried and lost interest yet some had them written down.
Wonder why some people could not even achieve an inch of what they dream of becoming? Blame it on pure dreaming and lack of setting goals for achieving their dreams.
Setting goals is a very significant part of success and positive accomplishments in your business. It is like scaling a 20 feet building and marking early on what feet you would like to reach at this specific period.
By setting goals, you will know how you are doing and what you should be doing to achieve your targets or dreams in your business. You will know if you can relax or if you have to double your efforts when you are falling short of what is expected of you in the business.
What is the key to setting goals.
First of all; Write them down. A goal that is not written is just a fantasy. A good goal is a dream with a deadline. Set the goals, write them down and then set a deadline for the goal. When do you want to accomplish them? And then make a plan to accomplish them. Write everything you need to do so that you can accomplish your goals. And then organize them by priority of what do you have to do first, what do you do second and so on. And then get started. This is where most people miss out in life. They have big dreams and clear goals but still dreaming of one of these days. One f these days is their daily creed. I always say, one of these days is none of these days.
Take a step today and start setting your business goals. Start it TODAY and have a look at the end results.
***Make GOAL SETTING such a no-brainer that not doing it would be like not cleaning your teeth! ***
