My Experience and Struggles – For Goal Setting

In my past experiences and struggles for goal setting was I would always procrastinate. I would put off today and say I would do it tomorrow. I would makes excuses and use distractions to keep me from accomplishing my goals. I have learned over the years that if I keep putting off my goals it will keep me from my dreams. I also learned that if I take my baby steps toward my goals it is a lot easier to do. Taking one day at a time. One goal at a time. This has worked for me and has kept me motivated and focused.

Life Example – For Goal Setting

A life example for goal setting is when rain drops hits the ground it is making a little dent. When it continues to drop over time it will make a hole. So Life lesson is keep trying and over time you will get better at setting goals and accomplishing them. Don’t give up. Don’t quit. Just keep on pushing forward.

Words of Encouragement – For Goal Setting

  • Just remember to keep your goals simple and specific as possible. Having vague goals will only leave you to failure.
  • If you are discouraged don’t give up with out a fight.
  • Nothing worthwhile ever happens without hard work and determination.

LIFE GOALS – ARE WHAT WE MAKE THEM

Life goals are what we make them out to be. They are the things we like to work on and achieve in order to be satisfied with our future and who we want to become. These could be any goals that we want from better relationships, starting a business, traveling the world, improving our health and finance. Goals should be specific so we can be focused and motivated to achieve them. They should never be vague because it will be harder to focus on and we could easily get distracted. Make a plan to set goals. Be determined and dedicated. Work hard on achieving your goals daily. Doing it one step and a time. Just remember goal setting is relaxing and healthy for you.

Talk It Over – Questions to ask yourself.

  1. How important is this goal for you?
  2. What do you want to accomplish?
  3. How much time are you willing to give yourself?
  4. Are you doing it for you or for someone else?

  1. Hi Mary. Thank you for this in-depth look at goal setting. For years I would be busy writing down goals and later on when I look back at them, I accomplished little or nothing. My greatest take-away from your article is the habit of breaking down big goals into smaller ones and making note when we have accomplished each of those small ones. Very encouraging. I also like those intention questions which put the whole project in perspective. Great points here. Best wishes !!!

    1. Hello JJ, Thank you so much for your comment.

      Setting goals and taking action is not as easy as it sounds but I have found that over the years that it is a lot easier to achieve smaller goals and break up the big goals in smaller steps that leads to success. 

      Thank you again and come back soon to visit.

      To your health,

      Mary
