Why You Need Goals...

"People with goals succeed in life because
they know where they are going"
- Earl Nightingale

What are goals?

A lot of people may be confused to how goals have of any significant importance in our life. Human's wonder, why it is necessary to have goals in order to succeed. Well to put it bluntly. People with goals succeed in life because they know where they are going. Goal are used to keep the human being continuously progressing toward some thing worthy. An objective that makes one stretch the comfort zone in order to reach there dream. With out goals, an individual tends to waste his or her life, feeling empty inside. Completely inadequate and lives under his or her potential.

Why have goals
Here an Example:
Now think of a ship leaving a harbor and think of it with the complete voyage mapped out and planned. The captain and crew knows exactly where it's going and how long it will take. It has definite goal. Now 99,999 out of 10,000 times it will get to its destination. Now picture another ship just like the first, but lets not put a crew on it or a captin at the helm. Lets give it no aiming point . With no goal and destination. I think you will agree with me that if it gets out the harbor at all it will either sink or wind up on some deserted beach. This is the same with a human being. If we have no goal or destination for our future, we tend we drift off and wonder. We become wandering generalities instead on meaningful specifics. Goals are used to build confidence, provide self- assurance, install perseverance, how to think positive, and build character. Goals are everything we need to become the person , we wish the become.

Goals help

Goals are basically your personal blueprints on how you want to live your life. It's a map of the tasks that you have to complete in order to attain your desired objective. So if you want to obtain a brand new stereo system. Write out daily activities you can do in order to achieve this goal. Its may be working extra hours at your job, or even starting a side business doing something your interested in and maybe even love. But if your dream is bigger " i hope so". You may have goals that deals with being the tops sales man in the country. And if this is your objective, write down at least 6 things a day that will lead you to this in the long goal. Remember to put a date on the completion of you long term goals. By putting a deadline on your end result, your mind will act like a homing mechanism to make sure everything happens in order for you the achieve this goal.

Goal mindset
You must carry with your self a era of confidence and cockiness that you have already achieved this goal. You must believe that everything is happening righ now, in order for you to reach this goal. Have no doubt in your mind that you cannot achieve this goal. Expect everything to fall into place in order for you to achieve this dream of yours. By having a attitude of positive expectancy, your mind clams down, doubt clears away and things begins to happen.

" Belief create the reality"
- Brian Tracy
