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.

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.

5 Powerful Reasons Why Passion is a Key to Success

Published

on

I once believed that we don’t need passion to succeed. However, when I started blogging, I realized that passion is a key to success. I noticed that my passion for blogging made me write articles consistently.

Besides this, my research on successful people enlightened me that successful people are passionate about their jobs. They work 24/7 because they enjoy and love their work.

These findings forced me to think deeply about the relationship between passion and success hence making me realize that passion leads to success because it:

1.Makes it Hard for You to Give Up

It will be hard for you to give up on something when you are passionate because you won’t care about the results. You’ll only care about doing your thing, and you’ll do it even when you don’t get the desired results. For instance, if you love singing, you’ll continue singing even when you only have 5 views on Youtube.

2.Makes You a Hard Worker

Passion makes you work more hours because it makes you obsessed with your work. You’ll want to work whenever you find time because you love your work. Besides this, when you are passionate, you’ll work long hours because you won’t be able to tell the difference between work and play. For you, working will be playing.

3.Changes Your Attitudes Towards Difficulties

People who aren’t passionate about their jobs have a negative attitude towards obstacles. They either see them as threats or messages from the universe that they’ll never succeed.

However, passionate people perceive obstacles as an opportunity for growth. They are always eager to overcome them, and they believe they’ll become better at their craft after overcoming obstacles.

4.Prevents You From Wasting Time

If you do what you love, you’ll be obsessed with work because you’ll be excited about it. For this reason, you’ll want to spend most of your time working, and you’ll avoid wasting time on useless activities such as gossiping or liking and commenting on Facebook posts all day.

5.Increases Focus

Passion leads to obsession, which breeds focus. Focus leads to success because it increases the quality of your work as it makes you more skilled and knowledgeable. Besides this, focus prevents you from making mistakes and breeds consistency hence increasing your chances of succeeding.

Conclusions

People who don’t like their jobs seldom succeed because they mostly focus on getting things done. Moreover, they never reach great heights because they usually lack the motivation to improve their skills. However, passionate people have high chances of succeeding because passion increases focus, motivates them to work hard, and changes their attitude towards difficulties. And, lastly, it makes them want to work all the time hence forcing them to avoid time wasting activities.
