To set a clear goal is to become precise about what you which to accomplish and your ability to discipline yourself in other for you to program your mind to work towards them daily. I once came across a quote that says, “almost every successful person begins with two beliefs, and that is the future can be better than the present and I have the power to make it so.”
Goals are what takes us forward in life, without goals we are like sheep’s walking without directions. I don’t know where I got that from, but you know where I’m getting at, but they are the oxygen to our dreams, the very first steps to every journey we all take and are also our very last. Therefore, it is very crucial that we realize the significance and importance of goal setting and making them clearer enough to put them to work.
So, what is a goal and why is it such an important factor in our life. We according to the dictionary, goal is the object of a person’s ambition or effort, an aim or desired result, a purpose of something that you want to achieve.
There’s a difference between setting a goal and setting clear goals, sometimes we say things like my goal is to be rich, I want to be successful, I want to have a man that adores me, my goal is to grow my Instagram account. But, in reality these are more like wishes not clear goals.
Goals should be specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-base just like we learned in school. An example of a clear goal would be, I want to gain 10k followers in 6months.
So why is it so important that our goals are clear? Well, in my opinion, it aids us to focus our minds and create calmness. For example, if I make up my mind to do something or work on achieving something, I would focus all my attention on it and I don’t spend my time or energy on anything else that comes my way. This means I know what I want, and I know how to get it. When your goals aren’t clear enough, it divides your attention, you basically move from one project to another without ever finishing what you started, so you end up never accomplishing anything. its more like a quitter.
A clear goal motivates you and makes life more fun and interesting. This is mainly because you get clear sense of satisfaction knowing that you are moving towards something that very clearly you want, something that if you end up getting, would benefit you a very big way. So, you feel more joy, safer and more importantly more confident in yourself.
Also, setting clear goals establishes hope. Now you are looking forward to something, probably something amazing, tangible, something that you know would make your life worthwhile, so this gives you inner peace. You have faith basically, faith in yourself and you are perfectly aware that if you do everything within your power, you will achieve it. the well-defined your goals are the better chance you have on attaining them. Every positive change in your life begins with a clear, unequivocal decision that you are going to either do something or stop doing something. Sometimes our lives must be completely shaken up and rearranged to relocate us to the place where we are destined to be.
Set your goals and be very clear about them. You don’t need to go crazy guys! Just think of simple meaningful goals that are clear. This way you have better chance of ever achieving them.
