At some point in our lives, we all want to achieve something. Whether large or small, we all have hopes and dreams for the future. We hope that at some point in our lives we are able to accomplish something that is significant to ourselves. It’s just simply part of who we are, a norm of our society, a part of our survival instincts along with the strong desire to thrive.
It’s not easy achieving goals in life. Couple this fact with the need to reach for something better than what we have today, it’s no surprise that frustration eventually sets in. And when we seemingly fail, the ridicule and humiliation makes it difficult to immediately bounce back.
The greatest problem that people face is their failure to set their goal the right way. And when they set their goals, their approach to achieving them is all wrong. The best way to achieve any goal is to set them right away and to work toward acting on them and achieving them over time.
Achieving any goal requires serious self-discipline. We need to be fully aware of our every action and we must be able to overcome some of the bad habits that could be holding us back. Here are 7 tips that will allow you set and achieve your goals in this new decade.
If your goals are financial in nature, it would be best to determine a specific amount of money. For instance, if you intend to have a net worth of one million in the next 24 months, your plan must include earning Php20,000 per month in the next 12 months by working with a service business. The point is, you must be extremely specific about your goal. And when you’re specific about a a goal, it materializes. It advances from abstract to reality. You might want to consider writing it all down too.
If your financial goals are associated with a deep meaning, like providing a comfortable home for your family, then they are more likely to be achieved. You can’t just want things just because you want it. When those meanings involve family, security, love and freedom, we have a tendency to see things through. We won’t end up giving up easily on these goals even if come across some large hurdles along the way.
When you set achievable goals, you’re more likely to achieve them and develop some momentum in the process to reach the grand goal. Perhaps, setting a goal to be able to pay all your bills on time by the end of the first year and have 10% of your salary in the bank monthly for a year. Then by the 2nd year, you can elevate your goal to saving up enough to move to a condo. By achieving these mini-goals you set yourself up with the right motivation to keep going until you get that mansion in the poshest area in the city.
The new year in 2020 is a new decade and fresh start for many. Make this the beginning of something big. Make every day worth while and live the life you’ve always wanted.
