One of the most difficult things in life is keeping motivated with new things. It is easy , all too often, to slip into an habitual, complacent way of thinking for an easy life. If you feel unfulfilled, or that life is too easy, you might want to consider getting yourself a goal. Personal development experts claim the idea of a goal is to push yourself to your limits; to get you to think beyond your limitations. A goal is one of the best things to shake you out of your comfort zone.
What are the reasons behind people’s goals? Well, some reasons are to attain tangible things such as more money, a better job or a better love life. The feeling of being unfulfilled is one of the most gnawing feelings someone can have. Other times, people just has a restlessness or uneasiness about their life. Often this is due to having life not being fulfilling. So perhaps, having a goal that takes you the next step or discovering other options is the way to go.
So, where do you start? A planning stage is always important for thinking up your goal, and many people find it very difficult. Thinking up a goal is often the most difficult part of the planning stage. When you come to sit down for the first time, you may find yourself in the middle of a battle between your confidence and your paranoia. What you need to do is to put all the random, over the top thoughts in your head out of your mind and then form a systematic plan.
One of the best ways to begin is with a life statement. A life statement is great for expressing your goals in a clear and articulate fashion. Furthermore, once something is written down it makes it a lot more difficult to be creative with the truth. This statement should be like a contract that you intend to honour.
So, where to begin? First of all, write down each one of your life goals and condense them into a single statement. This statement should be no longer than a couple of sentences, but it should still get across everything important about the goal
Taking control of your life is the key to securing long term success. Regardless of whether we were born rich or poor we all have the ability to manage our lives in a way to ensures we reach our true potential . The refrain ‘It was due to circumstances beyond my control’ is a commonly used excuse among people. The problem with excuses such as these is that they are defeatist. Rather than getting us to look for solutions to our problems, they encourage us to accept our fate as if we were helpless.
It is not only your goal that needs to be appealing for you. If you are not going to enjoy the journey you will take then expect the worst. Sadly this happens to be the case for many people. Take losing weight as an example. The problem many weight loss wannabes encounter is not a lack of will but the journey of weight loss itself. They tend to be unprepared to replace their unhealthy habits with new behaviours. Think carefully about the journey your goal is going to take. Can it be made more interesting? Will you last the distance and prove to yourself you can make it? Think smart by making every aspect of your goal as fun and exciting as possible.
Learning from experience is the single best way to develop your goal. It gives you the confidence to try different things, and to experiment with different approaches. To reach your desired outcome you just need to think about it like a challenge to be solved. Use your awareness to create a curiosity about the world and your surroundings. Outcomes are best achieved with a flexible and adaptive state of mind.
Think about how you could best prioritise and itemise the many pressures in your life. Can you categorise your life in neat 'important', 'quite important' and 'unimportant' boxes? Or would a more complex chart suit your life? Whatever your motivation make your goal suit you.
