"If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things." - Albert Einstein
If you were asked what your top 5 goals in life are, would you be able to answer immediately?
Few people really know what they want in life and where they are heading. Most people just go with the flow.
All of us need goals if we want to accomplish things. Everything you do, not matter how big or small, must always be aligned to your goals. Even one step makes a difference in your overall journey. These goals keep you in focus on what matters in your life. You are reminded about the purpose behind every decision you make and each action you take.
More so, having realistic life goals is healthy for your mind, body and soul. It keeps you on your toes. It helps your persevere during hard times and keeps you hunger to do more and to be better.
However, a goal without a plan is simply a wish. You need to strategize your milestones into achieving your goal. Promise to yourself that each step you take, you will deliver fully and if you fail, you will pick yourself right back up and try again.
Get done what you can do today. This is an important rule. What is not started today is never finished tomorrow. Never procrastinate or else you'll spill important tasks over to the next day and the next.
To have clear goals is not that hard. But keeping them in your system is another thing. You probably have thought about them before but you may not have written them down. Or maybe you have already done this, but it lacks update. Now is the right time to do it and get realigned.
Remember to follow your milestones. Each milestone serves as your mini goal leading to your main aim. Getting things started may require that extra work but when you have successfully started something, 50 percent of the work is already done. To begin is always the hardest part. Nonetheless, you need the power to endure to be able to finish your trail. That power to endure is drawn from a clear picture of your dream destination - what you really want in life, what you want to have, where you want to be. Not having goals is the same as sailing a ship across the Atlantic without a map. Goals, like maps, help you to get to your destination faster than sailing through life aimlessly. Put aside everything, and set your goals today.
