What Is A Goal?
Goal is a desired result a person wants in his life. It can be anything and anyone can set it. It is a direction for a human, where he has to go, what he wants to do in life and the goal he sets defines his life purpose. Goals are simply tools to focus your energy in a positive direction.
Why most people do not set a goal?
Do most people have goals? I think no, you can ask 100 people on the street about their life goals. Most of them will say, they do not have a goal in life. Only 3% Americans’ set a goal in their life and other 97% people never even think about it. 97% of the people think they don’t deserve good things in life, so why to waste time on writing down goals, also they are surrounded by negative people. Negative people will never lift you up; they always put you down. Failure is not caused by lack of opportunity; it is caused by lack of planning; those who don’t succeed actually plan nothing.
You should have a goal in life
You should have an action plan in life to achieve something. Set a time limit for what you want in life, and till what age. Nothing can stop you, you yourself is the limitation.
Ask these questions to yourself and write their answers on a paper
WHAT ARE MY DREAMS?
WHAT ARE MY PLANS?
WHAT IS MY PASSION?
WHAT ARE MY STRENGTHS?
WHAT ARE MY GOALS?
People think that by avoiding goal setting in their life they actually play on the safer side because there are no goals and that means there is no failure. If it is correct then ships should never sail because there is a chance of its drowning. Aeroplanes should never fly. Cars should be kept in the garage, it’s safer that way. But a ship, an aeroplane and a car will rust much faster if it is not put to use for the purpose it is built. There are risks in life too, but you have to take those risks if you want to achieve something in life. Ships, aeroplane and cars are built for a purpose, and similarly a man is born for a purpose.
