We’ve established our values and priorities, and now it’s time for a bit of soul searching, so buckle up!
Today we are going to discuss goals, and this can be life goals, or daily, weekly, monthly and yearly goals. I am a firm believer that when we have a deadline or a goal, then our mind starts setting up to get to that point.
People believe that goals can only be created once a year, around the time of New Years. But I am here to tell you that, that is complete bullshit. You can’t time your spontaneous life around one time of year. There will be times, even the most random of times, where an idea or concept will come to your mind, and you might not seize the idea because it’s not the time of the year to think of new things. Yes, New Year’s resolutions is a great place to start, but it is not the only place to start. Creating goals does not have a time constraint, it can happen whenever. So how about after reading this… seems like the perfect time?
Back to the point! Let’s look at how we create goals. We need to begin by dreaming big, and I mean big. People forget that everything around us was created by people who dreamed big, who were ambitious and had goals! You’ll hear the excuses that it was all luck, but did you ever think that no one can be that lucky? Yet they still have all that… Want to know how they did it? They made their own luck and opportunities. And how do you do that? Well first off, you will need a goal to reach. Going through life without any goals is like wandering in a vast field with nothing in it. Moral of this story, dream big. Might sound delusional, but everyone who has done it, and gave it their all and has never stopped, have accomplished their goals.
Now we need to come up with our goals. So take a few moments and think about what you would love to do in life? Maybe it’s a specific career you want, maybe it’s to open your business or even smaller things. Honestly to begin, think of a weekly or monthly goal, and then your work your way up to larger goals. I’ll give you an example, this blog. It has been a goal of mine for a while, and I stopped at one point, but recently I picked it back up. Now I write about things that I would want to read, and I have a goal with this blog. I want this blog to help people going through rough times, bring brightness and the sunshine to people, and to send positive vibes to the internet world. Once I knew which direction I wanted to take, my blog was revived and honestly so was I, because I had created a purpose for myself. So take a few minutes and think about what you want out of life, want you to want to accomplish or fulfill!
I also want you to find something that will set your inner spark on fire, and make it like the Olympic flame, which never goes out! You need to create goals that motivate you and push you, but ultimately inspire you every day.
So hopefully by this point, you’ve thought of a goal, and now you need to break it down and plan out everything you will need to do to accomplish it. Soon, I also recommend putting a time limit if you can, on your goal. So create a plan, and all the steps, no matter how small, that you will need to reach your goal.
There you go, you have created a goal, a sense of determination! Don’t you feel the tiniest bit motivated, energized, refreshed even? Remember though, goals through times will change because you will also change. I recommend, every few months re-evaluating long-term goals, and adapting them to your specifications. Don’t change them every day, but looking them over will you keep you in a good direction, and make sure it’s still what you truly want.
Goals can be scary, but they are there for you to make sure you live a fulfilled and happy life that you want. So go out into the world and do everything you possibly can to build the life you want!
Have a Wonderful day and go Conquer the World!
