It's important to have a goal. What it will be is not so important. Whether it is money, power, love, or something else, it doesn't matter. The determining factor is the existence of a goal.
In the life of every person there comes a moment when he stops for a while and thinks: "Where is he going?" This question is asked by many people. And the point here is in goal setting. Where are you going? What is your goal? What do you want to achieve? Only a small part of people can answer these seemingly simple questions. We ask “What do you want?” In order to understand what a person is striving for, what does he want to achieve?
Every second, every moment of life, a person needs to think about what he really wants. It is very important. The very concept of a goal can be characterized as an accentuated movement towards the desired. And the desired result can be the movement itself or the path. Going to the goal, you consciously understand what you are striving for.
It's important to have a goal. What it will be is not so important. Whether it is money, power, love, or something else, it doesn't matter. The determining factor is the existence of a goal. A person with a goal knows what he is doing and for what, and why, and right now, he is doing just this, and not something else.
It is always important to know where you are going. The goal and the result are two inseparable concepts. You can go to a dream, a desired result, to something. Correct goal setting is very important here. You must define the scope of this goal, how you will achieve it, and what results you expect to receive. What you need to achieve the goal, and what you can leave. Which strategies will be successful, which ones should not be used. How do you see the result? It is best to outline it as fully as possible in order to understand what you are starting to move towards.
There is a huge list of reasons why a person does not achieve his goals:
1. We are not going towards our goals. It is difficult for us to understand what we really want, as a result of which we cling to everything.
2. Comfort zone. This is a habitual way of life that people are so reluctant to change. It is better to stay in the environment that suits you. Who knows what is there?
3. Excuses. Most often it is: "I will do it tomorrow, then, next time, how will I feel better when I have this and that and so on."
4. A person does not even take the first step on the way to achieving the goal, but it is he who is much more important. When you start cycling and pedal, you will come to your goal.
5. Friends. Often the very best people in your life will not share what you want to achieve. Your development is alien to them. The desire to leave everything as it is prevails over them.
But then what to do? Leave everything as it is and not achieve your goals? Of course not. You need to start acting right now. Leave all your affairs and start working on achieving the goal. If someone and something interferes, it will be a bell that you are going to the goal, since the most pleasant things in your life are achieved very hard. But don't despair. The main thing in achieving a goal is movement. Doing something every day that will lead to your goal is much more important than you might imagine. Let flexibility and persistence be your allies. Whenever something goes wrong, ask yourself one simple question: "Am I flexible enough to address this issue?" When you give up and do not want to do anything at all, ask another question: "Is there enough persistence in my actions?"
When everything starts to work out, when you start to see the results of your actions, when you get out of your comfort zone, you will understand why you started moving towards the goal. Sometimes the path to the goal does much more than achieving the desired result. You can find friends who share your goal. You can find a new job, new hobbies and a thousand more things that you would like to do. And most importantly, you will be able to determine new directions (goals) in life to which you will be drawn.
