I do not know about you, but I've struggled in my life to understand setting goals and achieving them. I have taken so many courses in goals that I could teach one, in fact, now I teach it.
There are many different ways to learn how to set good precise goals. They work well if you do it! The problem is, so many give a half-hearted effort in the process and then surrender when nothing happens.
The sad truth is, you'll never get anywhere in life if you have no goals. Now, most of us have some kind of inner goal. I call it, "I want." You want something and that's your goal. Unfortunately, you can never get there without knowing what this is, especially and work on it.
One of the things that can really help you in your quest for what you want is to have a real burning desire to achieve it. The more you think about it, the more defined it will be until you can see it in your eyes.
Once you can see it, you have the ability to plan what it will take to accomplish it. Now you must be careful and be realistic. Robbing banks is not the way to reach your goal. It might be a while, but when the song catches you, your dream is complete.
When your workable plan is taken, you can start to mark the steps you need to take or have taken to get there. It only takes one or two steps a day to reach the goal. How many days? Well, it's up to you and how big the target is.
Do not kid yourself! Nothing has ever been done in this world that did not have the goal of achieving it. It may be that the goal has not been written down or that the goal was really thought out in this step, but it was a goal, a burning desire to achieve it and a plan to get there
