Everyone who wants to achieve great success in their life set goals. They know that goal setting will help them to achieve the things that they want in their life. Unfortunately, of all the people who set their goals, only a small portion of them achieved what they want. The majority of people who set goals did not achieve them. Why is this so? Is that goal setting does not work?
It is not that goal setting does not work. In fact, goal setting works and it works wonder, only if you know how you can make it work. Before you can achieve your goals, you must first understand what actually make you achieve your goals. It is the action that you take that will bring your goals come true. And in order for you to take action, it is the drive and motivation that will keep you going.
Therefore, if you want to achieve your goals, you must understand that it is the motivation deep in you that will drive you into taking action, and hence achieved your goals. One thing about motivation is this, what actually drives you? Your goals will not drive you or motivate you. It is the reason behind your goals that will drive you into motivational state and energize you into taking massive action.
Make this clear, it is the reason that you want to achieve your goals that will drive you. For many people, they want to be rich and they want to be a millionaire. But most of them will not achieve this goal. This is simply because becoming rich is not a ‘must’ for them. For many people, the reasons for them to achieve their goals are not strong enough. That is why most people fail to achieve their goals.
Thus, if you want to achieve your goals, you must first find out why you want to achieve your goals. If the reasons are not strong enough, you will lose the drive and you will never take the necessary action to make your goals come true. Just like if your goal is to quit smoking, but you just cannot help with it and you keep smoking because there is no solid reason for you to stop. You feel that smoking is great and it has become a hobby.
However, one day the doctor tells you that if you keep on smoking, you will die in 3 months time. Do you think that you will stop smoking? Definitely. Why? This is because the reason for you to stop smoking has become so strong that you will do whatever it takes to achieve this goal.
So make sure you know why you want to achieve your goals before you set them. Make sure that the reasons behind your goals are strong enough to keep you motivated all the time.
