We all have goals; things we want to achieve, places to visit, people to see, books to write, money in the bank, property for investment, flowers to grow, distance to run, walk or cycle etc. Over the next week or so I will include a series of articles on goals and goal setting, taken from a PLR source I bought some years ago.
Free PLR is available here.
There are already millions of words written about the setting and achieving of your goals, which are practiced by millions of people as well. However, most of the goals created are not fulfilled. Here are some great tips that will help you accomplish your goals.
1) Your goals should be original.
This doesn’t mean that such goals need not to be somehow similar or same as the other goals of other individuals. It just means that you should have your own goal, not a second hand one. Many people are practicing to have their goals based from the expectation and hopes of their cultural norms, society, parents and teachers.
Practice setting goals that are originally yours. If it is not just from you, what will it mean? Accomplishing them will not give you the happiness and fulfilment you dream about.
2) Your goals should be inspirational.
Your passion must represent the kind of goals that you have. It should not be any promise or simple wants. It must be something that will drive you to strive harder and be fulfilled as you obtain it.
Passion is that something which pushes you to do whatever it takes to achieve your goals. It keeps you on the track. It strengthens your concentration and motivates you. It is the passion that inspires you and leads you to your desired goal.
3) Your goals should be harmonious in nature.
All your goals must be according to your perspectives and dreams in life. They must not contradict one another. Recognize who and what you are. Base from it the set of activities and goals that you will have.
4) The goals of you must be realistic in nature.
The goals that you will be setting must be accomplishable within a lifetime framework.
Realistic goal doesn’t mean that you must have the usual goal of everybody. There are goals sometimes which seem unachievable for everybody but determined persons were able to do so, such as building a personal computer at home. These goals are attainable and do not let other people set your limitations.
5) Have idealistic goals.
Your goals must be based on your personal ideas, and from who and what you are as of today. They should be based on the different aspects of you; such as the environmental and physical, relationships and emotional, financial and material, ethical and spiritual, and educational and mental aspects.
Set the goals in accordance to your ideals in life.
6) Make your goals specific.
You must have a specific goal in order for you to be able to do the right attack towards it. If you want to be a rich person, define what you mean by rich.
7) Your goals should be flexible.
Several individuals miss the chances of gaining their goals because their concentration with those goals is inflexible and constricted.
8) You must visualize your goals.
Visualizing your goals in life will help you a lot and will serve as your motivation through the way. Imagining them makes them more realistic and believable. Build a vision board and put words and pictures where you will see them every day.
9) You should affirm your goals.
You must believe in yourself that the goal that you have is attainable and let everyone know about it so they can contribute to your achievement process. Keep it in your mind that if you will not believe in your goal, then you can never have it. Write them down and add them to your vision board.
10) Have a timely set of goals.
It is in time and space where everything exists. Set a specific period of time for the goals to become true.
11) You must have a list of all the goals that you want to achieve.
It has been proven through studies that people who jot down their goals have higher ability of accomplishing their tasks rather than those who only list such goals in their minds. People who don’t have a list of their goals are more likely to withdraw from the achievement process.
