Why Goal Setting Works For Goal Setters

Aug 15, 2008
If you have never set goals before, then you may be apt to wonder what all the fuss is about! For goal setter however, goal setting seems to bring a new lease of life. Suddenly life has a direction. In this article, we will look at why goal setting works.

Imagine getting in a plane, and the pilot has no idea of where the destination is. It is unlikely that the airplane will go anywhere! Goal setting works with the same premise, because it is dealing with direction, and more importantly, a choice of direction.

For most people, they don't have direction. We see this in the world, where many people hate getting up on Monday mornings! We have many choices in life, and all too often, we only see the direction which is here, but not there.

As is said - the world is our oyster, and the only people who must have figured that out, were the goal setters. You see, goal setting focuses us in a direction. Instead of floating like ships, we stop and ask - what do I want?

For many people, this happens as a new year's resolution. I am sure, like most, you have found how well New Year resolutions work - almost never. The reason is that we fall into a trap of forgetting about it within a few weeks, if not days.

This makes goal setting an important thing for the goal setter. After all, the goals you set will likely be new to you. You have never achieved them in your life. This makes the goal something that you really want.

Now, your passion is ignited, and you set about getting there. As you act, you learn and apply. Through the trials and errors, you find that you have achieved.

You will want to set new goals, bigger, and better goals. You set those, and achieve those. Along the way, you will find ways to make achievement happen quicker. You will have a new lease of life.

This is how goal setting works. People become success junkies, in the thought that - yes it is possible. No person has ever achieved success, without knowing what that success looks like. After all, how will you know you have achieved, unless you consciously desired a certain success?

Think back to your last vacation. I bet a few days before, even weeks before, you was enlivened. You felt inspired, and the last day at work, you worked your best. The reason was simple - you had a goal.

OK, so maybe more people goal set, then we at first imagine. However, it is not consistent. It only applies with the public holidays we get or the holidays we are entitled to from employment.

When you can consciously take action in goal setting, and set about working on them, and achieving them, over time, you find something amazing happens. Now, you find that you are living your dream.
