Everything that is man-made is designed before it is built. Be it a house, car, clothes or anything for that matter. But when it comes to the most precious thing of all, our life, no one bothers to design it. We often forget that the secret to a successful life is setting the right goals in life.
People fail not because they lack the ability, intelligence, willingness or earnest to succeed, but because they lack goals, they lack the direction in which to expend their efforts. Having goals, whether big or small, give purpose to our lives and are stepping stones to a happier life. They are the reasons we carry out our day-to-day activities.
Most of the people do not get what they want in life because they do not know what they want. Complicated, as it may sound, but goal setting is a skill anyone can learn and master if they are willing to put in the effort.
HOW TO SET GOALS IN LIFE AND ACHIEVE THEM
To get clarity of goals follow these simple steps:
1) Believe in yourself: The goal setting process should always and always begin with the absolute belief in one’s own abilities to accomplish any task no matter the odds, difficulties and adversities. Our success, by and large, is the result of our iron faith in ourselves translated into action. It is the “open sesame” to success.
2) Visualise your dream: Imagine yourself five years from now living a perfect life of your dreams. You have everything that you always wanted. Now answer the following questions:
a. How your lifestyle will be after 5 years?
b. How much money you will be earning
c. Which car you will be driving?
