Creating Your Own Personal Goal

May 22, 2008
Most of us work towards achieving some sort of objectives in our life time. Though we have some elementary goals to achieve, they may not be well defined and as a result they may turn out too vague to comprehend and attain. Most of us fail due to incomprehensible goals and objectives, which do not have any vision and definition. As a person if you want to achieve success in life, you will need to develop a definite personal goal/s, which will lead your life to happiness and prosperity. Personal goals are very important as they assume your personality and character in its objective.

Personal goals may be anything and in any form; some people want to achieve a tangible family goal, while many others want to gain professional or business success. Whatever the nature of your goals are, just remember that all of them are in fact, highly personalized and private. However, there are some goals which are team oriented, like a family goal involving your spouse and children, or it may be a team goal to be pursued by you and your business associates.

There are many advantages to set personal goals and some of those benefits are:

1. Youll be more enterprising and become highly talented once you reach those goals

2. You will also be empowered to make better decisions on matters of importance

3. Youll also be more organized and effective

4. Youll develop self confidence and self worth

5. Youll also become highly motivated and energetic

6. Youll have the satisfaction that youve achieved something tangible and worthwhile.

But always consider both the positive as well as negative aspects of your personal goal setting; there are times when you would have sacrificed something to achieve your cherished goal, but it may turn out failure, when you see that you have lost somewhere else. Always keep in mind the safety and security of your family in mind. If you feel that the goal you are trying to chase is worth its value, both in satisfaction and results, go ahead and achieve it.

Once you are ready with the spadework, create an action plan by considering the following:

1. Divide your goals in to many smaller chunks of manageable entities. You would preferably work on each of them to achieve the final result. Let these smaller pieces be interlinked to each other and have a connection to the ultimate goal.

2. Identify your goal by writing it down. Make sure that you have listed all of them in their order of priority.

3. Set a time frame for accomplishing it. Without a time tag attached to your goal, youll never achieve your goals. See that you attach achievable deadlines to each of your goals.

4. List what you need to do to achieve the goal. You may need your time and money to achieve those goals. Or you may have to sacrifice many of your luxuries and conveniences.

5. Identify who, and/or what, you will need to work with to reach your goal. This is often called as logistics part of goal setting and you will need to list all those things and materials needed for achieving goals.

6. List the skills and knowledge required to reach your goal. Are you skilled enough to reach those goals? How deep is your preparedness for reaching the destination?

7. Write down the steps you will follow. Create strict to-do item lists and a series of reminders. Follow them without fail and never deviate from the original objective.

8. You may need to change your action plan in the middle and be ready to replace the old plan with the new one, which is foolproof and practical.

Personal goal setting may not be a difficult task. Though it feels very difficult and strenuous, a goal can be achieved, if you are calm and determined. Be cheerful and sportive to accept any failures in the course, as they will be your stepping stones for future success.
