Someone asked a wise man what to choose between heart and brain. The wise replied, the ‘heart’. Something that you desire to have with all your heart can be termed as a goal. Something you just desire or lust to have is just a fluke of mind, namely fondness. If only you realize the difference between these two words, ‘goals’ and ‘fondnesses’, you can understand the purpose of your creation.
Goals are the drivers of life. They tend to utilize the maximum out of you. Without goals, life can be considered an empty, useless vessel that does not pour or hold anything. Humans without goals do not hold any life, nor do they benefit the people around them.
Goals and Fondness
People tend to set goals but fail to achieve them. It might be that they do not have the vigor to achieve them, or they misinterpret their fondness for things as goals. Goals give you the inner strength to bend it like Beckham and set the tone of your life, while fondness generally sooner or later fades out.
If you have goals in your life, you are on the right track. However, people are so tangled in other things that they tend to let go of their goals, although they didn’t intend to do it. Probably, they have prioritized other things in life. Over some time, these unaccomplished goals torment you as ghosts of self-realization and failure.
No one can help you to achieve your goals. However, some things might ignite your spirit to achieve them.
6 Things to Follow to Achieve a Goal Successfully
Dream Big but Specifically: They say that “Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” Set high goals for your life; even if you fail to achieve them, your handwork will pay off, and you will get its award. Develop specific goals rather than general statements. It is similar to like,” I aim to buy a sports car, but I will work in a multinational company so that I can buy a McLaren, if not a Lamborghini.
Stay Persistent: Big goals are never easy to achieve. You have to stay persistent as possible, so even you might get distracted from your set goals, and you are always on the track to achieve them. Giving up on your goals will demoralize you and set your spirits down.
Go the Extra Mile: If you want to achieve your goals, put your maximum effort to achieve them. Mathematically it can be proved that (1.00) ^ 365 = 1.00, but (1.01) ^365=37.78. It implies that you can put a little more extra effort daily, so you can inch closer to your goals every day, rather than staying stuck in place.
Channel your Attitude: To achieve your goals, you must have a positive attitude. Sometimes you might feel a bit low on energy or get demotivated by looser talk. A positive attitude will help you to pass these challenging times. It also helps you channel your energies in a way that lifts you up with the right mindset and mood.
Exert Forces In the Right Direction: If you think you can make fishes fly or make an elephant climb a tree, you fool yourself around. Set visionary yet realistic goals and exert all your forces in the right direction that will help you achieve them. If you plan poorly and then execute it in an unthoughtful way, you are just wasting your sweat.
Compare with Predetermined Metrics: To achieve your goals, you must analyze your performance with set metrics. Check to see why you lagging and what are is the cause of this impediment. Change your strategy. Ask for advice. Still, if you are not having the blues, it is probably just fondness, not a goal. As people with goals don’t go to sleep.
Once Made, Just Do Them
Goals are promises with the soul. They bring the best in you. Set your goals carefully, and move heaven and earth to achieve them.
