8 Steps on How to Set Your Goals

Setting up Goals can be quite daunting and exhaustive, that’s why most people don’t set goals at all. In fact, it takes a lot of sacrifice and disciple in order to accomplish such goals. Yes, IT IS HARD to set goals and IT IS HARDER to implement them. However, in order to get desirable results, goal setting is critical in achieving success. The following point can be used in setting your goals.

.

#1. Decide on What You Want

Most people are clueless when it comes into decision-making of what they really want. One factor that I can see here, is because most people limit their wants with their current resources (money, machineries, equipments, etc.) Therefore, if they don’t have that ‘capital’ or ‘resources’, they simply give up on what they really want. Hopefully, this Motivational Audio entitled Don’t What If Yourself! may help you decide on your goal. (Listen to the Motivational Audio)

#2. Write Your Goals

You can get a piece of paper, setup into your iPad or iPhone (or open up your Word Processor), then write your goals. Your goals should be something that will make you feel fulfilled once you have achieved it. Write it down in clarity (into specific details) to the best that you can.

#3. Set Deadlines to Your Goals

A goal is not a goal, unless it has deadlines. Deadlines will keep your energy level high. If your deadlines to your goals are too way far, you’d loose interest along way. Urgency is important in keeping your energy at high level. So, set a closer deadline, and try to achieve it as much as you can.

You can set your large goal into sub-goals in order to create sub-deadlines. This will make you feel that you are accomplishing the most of your goals, and therefore, will keep your spirit motivated to achieve more.

#4. Make a List of Actions

Make a list of all the things that needs to be done in order to achieve your goals. Don’t think about yet on who’s going to make it. Just make a list on what tasks are needed to be accomplished.

#5. Organize Your Action Plan

Now that you know the actions that needs to be taken, now, organize it.  Place your goals in a proper sequence and priority.  This may also involve leveraging on other people’s abilities and talents, networking, or outsourcing.

#6. Take Action

Now that everything is set, take “ACTION!” Don’t let your lack of resources stop you from doing the things that you want. Start right now with whatever you got, with whatever resources you have. What’s most important is that you just get started, and take the possible adjustments later.

#7. Make it a Habit

The only way to maintain the momentum is to make sure that you consistently doing things toward the attainment of your goal. Make sure that you make it a habit to integrate your goals into your lifestyle.

#8. Re-write Your Goals

Consistently review and re-write your goals. Your goals may change and improve in order to adopt the changing world and technology. Be flexible and don’t be stubborn. Be open to new opportunities that will come your way.

.

Don’t let your lack of resources stop you from achieving what you want.

Just get started and the road will be paved.

.

IF you are frustrated by not having the things that you wanted, and by not being someone you wished to be, it is because, you have the lack of clarity. Brian Tracy said:

“Clarity accounts for probably 80% of success and happiness. Lack of clarity is probably more responsible for frustration and underachievement than any other single factor.”

.

Meaning, IF YOU ARE ACHIEVING LESS THAN OF WHAT YOU CAN ACHIEVE, your life right now is not where you are supposed to be. Lack of clarity of what you want is most probably the reason why you are not happy, not successful, not healthy, and/or financially broke.

Your frustration in life is coming from your “doing less” and by “being less”.

.

So, set your goals. Be happy, be fulfilled, and be successful!

To your success,
