set goals

“You never know what's around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you've climbed a mountain.” 
Set high Priority goals
      .You also need to keep in mind that you Set Goals that are of high priority in your life. It means you need to set goals that are important to the situation in your life. if you don’t set a priority for your goals,what’s gonna happen is, you can end up with far too many goals to achieve,leaving you very little time to devote to each goal.Remember goal achievement requires dedication,commitment and focus.So, to make sure that you reach the finishing line of your goals and make them succeed, you need to feel that sense of urgency, you need to have that ‘I MUST DO THIS’ attitude.If you set too many goals, your focus would get divided on less important goals.This could result in giving less focus to important goals in your life, leaving you feeling disappointed and frustrated with yourself, and that will be de-motivating for you. And what’s gonna happen is, you would end up in a very destructive “I can’t do anything” or I can’t be successful at anything” that’s going to be your frame of mind. So make sure you set high priority goals and pay less attention to smaller or irrelevant goals.
Taking action on your goals
     Now that you have set goals, it’s time to take action on your goals. You need to define a timeline for your goals.I want to earn a million rupees, but when? In a year’s time. I want to lose weight 30 kilos, in six months,If you set deadlines, it will provide you with the necessary focus and sense of urgency to turn them into reality.To set a deadline you simply need to ask yourself one question – By when do I want to achieve my goal?List the steps you need to take, such as signing up for a course, studying,reading,developing the required skills,going to the gym, working out,looking out for new opportunities and many other steps you need to implement that will take you closer to achieving your goal.Take action and follow the steps on your list.Don’t just wait for things to happen.If a certain plan, say plan A  doesn’t work, look for an alternative one.Look for plan B.Some goals aren’t worth achieving.Circumstances and people change. Some goals lose their importance.It is a good idea to re-examine your goals regularly and weed out the worthless ones or the irrelevant ones.
Visualize
  In life and work, success begins with a goal.It could be losing weight, earning that 1 million rupees, quit smoking or starting your own business.Big or Small,goals give us purpose and,they are like a compass,they  keep us headed in the right direction.Of course,it takes lot of hard work and determination to reach your destination.Now Unfortunately, many of us remain stuck at the goal stage. We start out with good intentions and perhaps have a plan of action,but then we can’t seem to make it happen. Before we can believe in a goal,we first must have an idea of what it looks like.To paraphrase an old saying :“We must see it, before we can believe it.” This is where picturization technique comes in, which is simply a technique for creating a mental image of a future event.When we visualize our desired outcome,we begin to “see” the possibility of achieving it faster.Through visualization,we catch a glimpse of what it is, in other  words it’s the  “preferred future.”  When this happens, we are motivated and prepared to pursue our goal in life. Now don’t get confused,  I am talking about with the “Just think it and you will be able to do it” advice which is given by a lot of popular self-help gurus. I am not asking you to daydream things and they will happen, of course you need to take action. I am asking you to just visualise the success of your goals so that you could get a first hand feel of it. for example, if your goal is to run your first marathon, visualize yourself crossing that finish line in the time you desired. Remember  about being specific. Hold that mental image as long as possible. What does it feel like to pass that finishing line,looking at your watch,the cool air on your overheated body? Just imagine Who is there to greet you as you hit the finishing line? Your family? Your Friends? Other runners? Imagine that excitement, that satisfaction, the thrill you will experience as you walk feeling exhausted in their arms. Now that’s visualization or picturization ..
you get the first hand feel of your success.

   But please keep this in mind that Visualization does not guarantee success. It also does not replace hard work or practice.  It is just a powerful way to achieve positive, behavioral change and create the motivation required to achieve your goals.

    Don’t set yourself up for failure by letting your dreams get bigger than your abilities. In other words don’t set hard goals for yourself, just make sure they’re attainable. There’s a great quote that says,“It’s funny how day by day, nothing changes but when you look back everything’s different.” So,One year from now, you’ll be one year older no matter what.How you plan and act on your goals today will make you  feel really different and really satisfying a year later.
