How to Set Your Goals

Aug 18, 2007
We know that goal setting is very important. It is for setting up our direction. It can also shape our life. The secret of goals setting is however not known to many people. The goals need to be set in the right way otherwise they will not be effective. In this article, we will talk about the importance of the goals and how we can set the goals for our future success. In addition, we will talk about the way to enhance the chance of achieving goals.

Before we go to goal setting, we need to understand why we need goal. How important is goal setting to our life. The answer is that it is very important. Goal setting is so important that we can not be successful without it. Living a life without goals is similar to sailing without a compass. We will not know which direction we are heading. We will not know when and where we are going to end up with. We will not know our destiny. We will leave our life depending upon the environment and other people's plans. The people who have the goals of their own will set a goal for us. And it will not for our benefits.

If goal setting is so important, why do only few people have goals? We learned that majority of people in this world do not come from a family that have goals. They do not know how to set goal and they do not see the important of it. Besides, they are not taught the importance of having a goal and they live life like their parents do. They do not even believe that all success come form goals.

In order to be able to set effective goals, we need to do some homework to find out what we need first. Goal setting without enough motivation to achieve it is like not setting goal at all. Our brain will deny doing things to achieve the goals because it will not accept in our mind. And all things start in the mind. Goal setting is like any other meaningful activity. It needs discipline and hard work. What we need to check on goal setting includes:

What we like most? What we want to do if we will not have to work for the rest of our life? What we want to do if we do not earn anything from it? The answers of these questions will reveal what we want in life and will enable us to have enough reasons for our goals. After we know the reasons, we need to write the goals down in paper. Do not just have goals in mind. They will not last. Goal setting will not have any meaning if you just put it in the air and do not want to do anything. Writing down your goals will enhance your possibility of achieving them by five times. Do not ignore this important step.

The best time to write down your goal is when you have most powerful mind power which is either before going to bed or immediately after you wake up. The number of goals that you set up will depend on what area you need to concentrate on. The best number of goals should be around twenty for short term and fifty for long term. Keeping the goals with you will help you remind of the purpose of having them and the steps to follow through.

Regularly visualize yourself achieving the goals will be another process to follow. It will attract the situation and attributes to help you to be closer to your goals according to the law of attraction. Make sure that you make enough visualization daily.

Goal setting is very important. Yet only a few people know how to make the correct preparation to it. In this article, we learn how to make worthwhile goal setting and how to make it most effective.
