Achieving Your Personal Goals
Achieving Your Personal Goals in Five Easy Steps
First off, what is a goal? Well in this context, a goal is a personal objective. Something you want to achieve within a specific period of time.
All successful people are goal oriented. They know exactly what they want they are working toward the achievement of their goals every single day. They tend to accomplish far more than the average person in all aspects of life.
Here are the 5 steps to get you started:
The more precise and clear your personal goals are the easier it will be to know when they are complete. Just like in business, objectives should be specific and measurable. Ensure they are real and achievable.
2. Write it down
If you do not write your personal goals down, they will merely be wishes. Something magical happens when you put pen to paper, your writing etches its way into your subconscious.
3. Make it time bound
Make your goals time bound by setting deadlines and sub deadlines in case you break it down. Give yourself a realistic but aggressive time scales so that your goals challenge you.
4. Get it out there
When we see our goals, we are sending an important message to the brain that activates us, and we then take steps to do what must be done to attain those goals. Tell the world about your goals as well, this will make it very hard for you to pull out.
5. Take action immediately
You have to have momentum going and you should ideally be taking an action every day to bring you one step closer to the achievement of your goal.
So that was the 5 steps, not exactly rocket science. It sounds easy enough but the trick is to keep things up and move closer to achieving your goals every day.
