Setting Life Goals Properly

Good day everyone

Welcome back to the Café

Here is a piece of training I shared with a student this week.

I hope you find it helpful.

Setting Life Goals Properly

To become successful in life, you need to accept that there are going to be setbacks that you are going to encounter, and it is how you emerge from these types of situations that is important.

To make sure that you continue to move forward, you must set life goals properly despite these setbacks. You will continue moving towards success if you can since you know what direction you need to take.

To set your goals in life effectively, though, there are specific tips that you need to take note of.

When you set your goals, they should be achievable and realistic. When you set unrealistic goals, you will be frustrated since you will not have the necessary tools to hit your target. Thus, you need to set goals that you know you can achieve with your skills and available resources.

On top of being achievable and realistic, your goals should also be specific. You don’t want to have vague or too general goals since you would not know your progress in achieving them. In fact, you would not even know if you have already achieved them or not.

One example of this is when you want to become healthier. To make it more specific, you want to change that goal to become healthier by losing 12 pounds. When you set your goals like this, you will be able to monitor your progress effectively. With this example, if you have already lost 10 pounds, you know that you are almost there.

Another thing that you can add to this is that your goals should also be time-bounded. Thus, if you want to lose weight by 12 pounds, you should state that you will hit it in ten days or within two weeks. With time-bounded goals, you will be able to set the necessary steps that need to be taken properly, and you won’t procrastinate in doing them.

Going back to your goals being achievable, do not forget that they should also provide you with a challenge. If you do that, you will feel a deeper satisfaction whenever you can attain them.

Keep in mind that you can set long-term and short-term life goals. You should set short-term goals to provide you with an easier way of achieving the long-term goals. In other words, they will come as small steps that you can take towards reaching the door of success.
