Why should I set a goal?-how can it be achieved?

Spread the love

Goals, a powerful tool but many view as a daunting task and some people would never even consider setting a goal because they have no vision or direction in life. Everyone should have some kind of direction in life and if you’re the kind of person that has some place in life that you would like to be, why not consider setting a goal, I think you owe it to yourself.

have you ever dreamed of being accomplished at something that it set you apart from the majority of most other people, but then you reason with yourself, oh, I could never accomplish that, there is no way I could ever get so good at something that others would look up to me as an authority figure, so why should I set a goal? But today I’m going to tell you that, if you can think it, it can be achieved.

So you ask, how can this goal be achieved? do I need to have some special kind of ability to follow through with the demands that this accomplishment is going to ask of me? the answer to that is no, you don’t need some kind of special ability, all you need is a burning desire to have something that you want so bad that you can see it, feel it and have the desire to go after it.

Setting goals, how they can be achieved 

What ever the desire is that burns in you, first and foremost you need to visualize yourself already achieving what it is that’s your hearts desire. Spend some time after you wake up in the morning in a quiet place away from any distractions. Find a comfortable place to sit with your arms at your sides, close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and visualize yourself already attaining your perceived goal.

Concentrate in this relaxed state, repeat over and over to yourself what it is that you want to achieve, visualize in your mind possessing your inner most desires. If your goal is to be successful at a sport, visualize yourself already attaining a metal for all your hard work, hear the applause of the crowd, smell the victory in the air, get a taste of what your new life will be like.

If you repeat these affirmations over and over again, pretty soon you will realize that you have been programming your mind to think like a champion and then your thoughts will become actions and your actions will become reality. All you need to have right now is the desire and the belief in yourself that you can do anything you put your mind to.

Setting your goals high enough

Whether the goal that you want to master is in the field of sports, becoming a well known actor or actress, a musician or you are looking for a formula to make a million dollars, give your goal some thought, you will want to make sure that you set your goals high enough, if you don’t set your goals high enough, the end result may be that you have not reached the point that you had originally planned for.

As the saying goes, “shoot for the stars” it’s better to plan big than not big enough, then if you don’t reach your goal, keep pursuing it, Arnold Schwarzenegger is a great example of someone who loved a challenge, do you think he would have been the kind of person who would have set a goal that was achievable without any doubt and set boundaries and limitations? Schwarzenegger is a man who would never back down from a challenge, he would love a good game and give it his all.

Make your goals come to life

Spend some time on meditation every morning after getting out of bed and every night just before returning to bed. Try to spend at least fifteen minutes per session on some beneficial meditation away from any distractions. It might be a good idea to keep a notepad by your side, this way if you have any profound ideas come to mind during your meditation, you can put them down in writing right along with your goals.

Include on your list of goals, when, how and why, Including these three factors with your goals will make them more personable and will give you more purpose and it will make your goals more persuasive if your mind starts to sway over the coming months.

First you need to determine (when) you would like to arrive at the destination you have set your goal for, determining when will help you in not only coming to a time you have set in achieving your goal, but it will act as a gauge in determining your productivity and if you need to make any changes or tweaks in your performance.

Next you need to determine (how) you plan to arrive at the destination you have set your goal for. This is completely dependent on what your goal is and what your willing to give of yourself in attaining this goal.

And next you need to determine (why) you have set your sights on achieving a goal that makes you stand out from the rest of the crowd. Is it for money? is it for glory? or is it that you just love a good challenge.

Seeing them through

After setting any goal, it’s necessary to follow it through, if you set a goal to achieve a greater level for something that you have passion for, then it’s evident that what you have your sights set on is important enough to set a goal for, so then it should be important enough to follow it through. After all, no one is going to pursue your goal for you.

You need to be specific about what your goals are, you need to have a clear and concise plan written down and keep your plan in a place that you will see frequently every day and you need to keep them clear in your mind to feed your thoughts positive energy to have the best possible outcome.

That’s why it is important to meditate on your thoughts and plans first thing after getting up in the morning, this is a time that you are preparing your mind for the day and you are training your mind to think on a level that is more resistant to acceptance of failure, it is your subconscious mind that you are taping into and the power of the subconscious mind is phenomenal.

Before turning in for the night is an important time of day to follow a plan of meditation, it relaxes and prepares your mind for sleep. This period of time that you sleep, your subconscious mind is more at work than in the awake hours, the subconscious mind draws upon the forces of infinite intelligence.

You can not entirely control your subconscious mind, but you can voluntarily hand over to it any plan, desire or purpose that you wish to transform into a reality.


I hope that I have covered some sound information that you can use in transforming the desires of your heart into reality. Remember that with any dream there is a thought, with any thought there should be it’s equivalent plan followed up by an action, then when there is action set forth becomes reality.

Thanks for sharing this eye opener article 

  2. Thank you for sharing ¨Why should I set a goal? – how could it be achieved?¨This is to elaborate on your insightful article: goals that motivate you.When you set goals for yourself, it is important that they motivate you: this means making sure that they are important to you and that there is value in achieving them. If you have little interest in the outcome, or they are irrelevant given the larger picture, then the chances of you putting in the work to make them happen are slim. Motivation is key to achieving goals.You are quite right in your article  in setting goals and why and how. But setting goals need to relate to the high priorities in your life. Without this type of focus, you can end up with far too many goals, leaving you too little time to devote to each one. Goal achievement, as you mentioned, requires commitment, so to maximize the likelihood of success, you need to feel a sense of urgency and have an ¨I must do this¨ attitude. When you don’t have this, you risk putting off what you need to do to make the goal a reality. This in turn leaves you feeling disappointed and frustrated with yourself, both of which are de-motivating And you can end up in a very destructive ¨I can´t do anything or be successful at anything¨ frame of mind
