4 Unique Lessons I Learned From Goal Setting that Will Make You Start Setting Goals Right Now

Published

on

When I started setting goals, I realized goal-setters progress quicker than non-goal-setters. Besides progress, I experienced the following benefits of goal-setting.

Here are they:

  1. Goal Setting Proves that the Law of Attraction Works

According to The Law of Attraction, you attract what you constantly think about. I never believed in this law until I embraced goal-setting and realized that I achieved some of my goals because I constantly thought about them. For example, in 2015, one of my main goals was to get an exotic dog. I didn’t have the money to buy the dog but I eventually got it. I know you are wondering how I got the dog.

Here’s how?

After writing down the goal, I became obsessed with getting a dog and I spent a large percentage of my time thinking and talking about how I will get a dog.

A few months later, my friend’s dog fell sick, and I offered to take care of it. One day as I was taking it to the vet, I met a friend’s friend who asked me to take care of his dog because he was traveling.

I accepted the offer, and after a few weeks, the dog owner told me to keep it because he was too busy for the dog. And that’s how I got Bobby, the best dog in the world.

By the way, Bobby was pregnant when I got her, and she gave birth to six pups on 9th October 2015.

  1. Goal Setting Proves That You Don’t Have to Know the ‘How.’

Setting big goals and achieving them motivated me to dream big because I realized that I don’t have to know HOW I will achieve my goals.

In 2015, one of my goals was to relocate to Nairobi (Kenya’s Capital City), but I didn’t have the money for relocation. I didn’t know how I would raise the money but I just wrote down the goal.

Five months later, my friend Silas informed me about a vacancy at his workplace which was in the city. I went to the city, passed the interview, and my parents sponsored the relocation. It happened so fast. I didn’t know how it happened, but it happened. I found myself working and living in Nairobi.

  1. Goal Setting Increases Faith in Big Things

Goal setting increased my faith in achieving big things because I usually achieve half of the goals I set regardless of how big or small they are.

  1. Goal Setting Made me a Hard worker

I always know that I’ll be depressed if I don’t achieve my goals. Therefore, I often work hard when I set goals so that I achieve them.

Concluding Remarks

Goal setting can increase your faith, make you a hard worker, and enlighten you that you can achieve whatever you set your mind to.

For this reason, start setting goals and remember to pray for the wisdom and strength you need for achieving your goals.

The 5 Major Stages You Must Go Through When Chasing Your Dreams

Published

on

Shows the difficulty involved in dream chasing

After studying the biographies of many successful folks, I realized that all of them went through the same stages of dream chasing regardless of their socio-economic status. I summarized these stages into five stages which I believe you’ll also go through if you are chasing your dreams.

Here are they:

Stage 1 – Idea

Here, you’ll give birth to a great idea that you’ll want to turn into reality. For instance, if you are an aspiring writer, you’ll want to turn your thoughts into a best-selling book, and if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll discover a wonderful business idea which you’ll want to turn into a successful company.

Stage 2 – Enthusiasm

After discovering the idea, you’ll visualize the life you’ll live when you’ll achieve your dreams, and you’ll tell your friends and family about this life. You’ll then research on how you’ll turn your idea into reality, and you’ll start working enthusiastically because you’ll want to live your dream as soon as possible.

Stage 3 – Disappointment

After working for a period of 6 – 18 months, you’ll be disappointed because you’ll make little progress despite working hard. For instance, if you are an aspiring vlogger, you’ll realize that getting 10,000 subscribers is not easy, or if you are an aspiring entrepreneur, you’ll be disappointed because your business might fail to make profits.

Besides this, you’ll realize that dream chasing demands funding, but few people are willing to support you. Primarily, you’ll realize that it might take longer to achieve your dreams. These challenges will make you want to give up.

Most people quit chasing their dreams at this stage.

Stage 4 – Perseverance

If you really want to achieve your dreams, you’ll decide to persevere. You’ll face obstacles fearlessly, and you’ll commit yourself to overcoming them. Besides, you’ll avoid everything and everyone that might prevent you from achieving your dreams. Also, rejection, failure, and naysayers won’t stop you from working hard.

You’ll also realize that only those who persevere achieve their dreams, and you’ll work like hell. Moreover, you’ll strive to make the journey enjoyable so that you don’t give up.

Most folks make their journey enjoyable by making friends with like-minded people.

Stage 5 – Success

After working for a long period without quitting, you’ll become highly skilled, and many people will love your services/products. If you are a writer, many people will be willing to buy your books, and if you are a businessman, people will be interested in your products. You’ll then use the money you’ll earn to buy whatever you want and travel wherever you want. You’ll be so fulfilled.

Conclusion

It’s easy to dream, but difficult to achieve dreams. Most people quit when they realize they’ll have to work for a long period before they achieve their dreams. Only those who persevere succeed because they never give up. We must thus join the perseverers if we want to boost the chances of achieving our dreams.

Top 6 Reasons Most People Can’t Persevere on the Journey to Success

Published

on

Perseverance refers to the ability to work persistently towards one’s goals despite facing difficulties.

After studying successful people for five years, I realized they all persevered since they never gave up despite facing obstacles. Nothing stopped them from working towards their dreams.

Besides successful folks, we can also persevere, but most people can’t because of the following reasons.

1.People Don’t Study Success

Studying success enlightens you that difficulties, failure, or discouragement are part of the journey hence enabling you to work in spite of their presence. Moreover, studying success shows you that only those who persist succeed hence motivating you to persevere.

2.The Lack of Self-Confidence

Most people can’t persevere because they lack self-confidence. They doubt their abilities and skills and give up easily when they face obstacles.

Successful people persevered because they believed in themselves. They believed they could overcome obstacles and thus continued working towards their goals when obstacles arrived.

3.The Myth of Overnight Success

The myth of overnight success has resulted in the inability to persevere because it makes people think success comes easily. This myth has made aspirers believe success arrives soon after they start working towards it. For this reason, most aspirers give up when they realize that they’ll have to work for a long period and overcome several difficulties before success arrives.

4.People focus on the Outcome

Most individuals can’t persevere because they focus on the outcome. It’s hard to persevere when you focus on the results because it usually takes long before we get the results we expect. People who persevere, focus on the process instead of the results. They know they’ll get the results they want if they forget about them and work on their skills.

5.The Lack of Passion

People who hate their work seldom persevere because they focus on results and misinterpret difficulties. Furthermore, they easily get bored with their work hence making it difficult to work when they face obstacles. Conversely, passionate people persevere because they are obsessed with their work and perceive difficulty as a chance for growth.

6.Focusing on the Possibility of Failure

Focusing on the possibility of failure prevents people from persevering because it discourages them from working towards their goals when they face difficulties.

Most successful people focused on success: they believed they’ll succeed no matter what, and this belief motivated them to continue working in spite of discouragement.

Conclusion

It’s easier for people to work towards their goals when everything is going well. However, most people get discouraged when the going gets tough. The ability to work when it gets tough is what sets successful people apart. We must, therefore, master the art of perseverance.

If you don’t give up you can’t fail.’ – Menna Vaan Praag, Successful Author
