all know the importance of setting goals. When we set them, somehow
we often don't seem to achieve them. Why is it that most of us fail
to achieve our goals?
According to my experience, failure happens because most of the
times our goals are not really ours; others imposed them on us,
and we are made to believe that this is what we should want or aim
Whey is it that so many of us don't set goals? I think it is because
of fear, rooted in poor self-esteem and under confidence.
Come on, you won't let life just happen to you; you will 'make it
happen'. You will be a doer and a dreamer rolled into one. You will
follow your chosen path. Are you ready for this challenge?
If yes, then you need to make some commitments to your self. These
commitments are easy to make but take some efforts to sustain.
Understand your potential: Be confident. Your are
a unique being with unique talent. Bring forth your abilities and
let them flower.
Bring excellence into your life: Whatever you choose
to do, do it to the best of your ability. Being successful is a
habit. If you are successful in small endeavors as well, such as
polishing your shoes to give them a great, shine, you will feel
proud of yourself.
Success in such small mundane activities propels you to success
in higher spheres. Rate everything that you do on a scale of 1 to
10, where 1 means 'very shabby' and 10 mens 'excellent'. Your satisfaction
level should be at least a 9 on this scale.
No regrets: Let go of the past. Learn from your
mistakes and failures and move on.
Allow yourself to dream: Be honest with yourself
about your goals, but always think big and dream bigger: It helps
you push forward.
Plan for achieving your goals: You must have heard the saying that
if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. You must make a written plan
about how to reach your goal, Take it one step at a time.
Believe in yourself: Confidence in you abilities
and your vision is they key ingredient for success.
Never give up: The role of persistence in achieving
your dreams can't be overemphasized. You want something, go get
it and don't turn back till you've got it.
