We all have goals. At least we have all we want to achieve. What's the difference? There is actually a big difference between goals and anything you want. Something that you want can become a goal, but you must do the goal.
It takes a special action to accomplish something. These are the steps needed to start moving in the direction you need to move. There are many challenges you must overcome and finally the ideas you need to create to solve these problems and continue to evolve despite the many challenges you face.
If you just want something, you may not be able to go through these steps. It takes more than wanting something to start making changes, analyzing and overcoming challenges. It takes more than just wanting something to accomplish.
What does it take? It takes a goal. In fact, it takes a series of goals that take you gradually through the steps you need to create new practices and change your lifestyle. But it all starts with one goal. If you have goals, only one goal, you can achieve all that you want to achieve.
I know this may sound a little dreamy and even a little "back in the sky" but in fact it's exactly the opposite. The dream is for you to think it by wanting something you can get it. By simply wanting, hoping and wishing, you can and even find that you should have something. It's a thought many people have these days and it leads us down the wrong way.
What way is it? Well, health is my thing. I think it's talked and lived every day. Of course, the way I'm talking about greeting an average person. I do not need to locate statistics or show you catastrophic information about what's happening right now. You know as I make our country suffer from many epidemics we've bought on ourselves. We left them in spite of knowing exactly what we need to do to stop them.
We can prevent everything we should deal with if we can change our mindset. Now, our mindset is like this:
"I want to live a healthy lifestyle."
"I want to look good."
"I want to live a long and happy life."
"I want to hear good news when I go to the doctor."
"I just want to see your doctor for periodic review to make sure everything is still good."
These are all great things you want. They are even great things to say. They are statements we are all saying every day. Unfortunately, they are rarely boundaries. They are nothing but statements of what we want. What we want is important, but at this point they do not seem to be important enough to accomplish.
We all want to make these statements true. What will it take to start getting these things and make them true? It will take goals. Each of these statements is an opportunity to set goals. The goal is nothing but a destination or point you want to achieve. In health, it can be weight, size or simply feeling. There can also be a certain number of days, hours or even minutes of exercise. The goal may be to eat a particular meal or not eat at a particular restaurant. No matter what you want to accomplish, there is a goal that can help you achieve that.
What happens if we do not set real goals? Well, it's even simple that we set goals. There are very few options here. When you have no goals, you do not succeed. That's all it is. Can you travel without a destination? Well, you can definitely go around, but until you decide where you're going, you're not really going anywhere. Do not get me wrong, when it comes to life, I'm "enjoying the journey" person. I'm definitely happy with the trip when I leave, but I'm on my way to somewhere that will give me a lot of pleasure.
This is where most people get hung up and give up their goals. They look at the destination and feel like it's too far away to reach. It's easier to say, "I would love to be there." but it's more challenging to say, "I want to be there and I will take action to get there."
It's the difference between wanting something and having that goal. When you have a goal, you have a plan to get something. When you just want something, you're not taking the steps needed to get it. You must want something before you can decide to take action, so it's good when you can find something you want.
When you want something enough, you will take the necessary steps to accomplish it. When you really want to accomplish something, set the goal to start that direction. The most common mistake people make is to try to look at each achievement as something they need to do in one step or with one goal. Indeed, most practices are many goals wrapped in infinite series of routines. Once you set one goal and start to succeed, you can see each task it comes from. If you just come back and hope something will happen, you will continue to see the whole picture and it will never seem easier. It will always look like this magnificent thing that you do not think you can realistically achieve.
When you can set goals, even one goal, you can start breaking down wherever you want and take it step by step. Nothing worth doing is easy. I will not sit here and tell you to live well is easy and you should be able to do it without any problems. It would be alleged and would really keep you in mind that it can not be done.
In fact, it is happening throughout the country as we spoke. Someone just read another article or another report about what they should do. Remember they are not doing it and it was further felt from reality when they saw another story about how they should be able to do that. The fact is, we know what we should do. We know what we can do and we want to do it, but we do not because we do not go beyond what we want.
We are still making statements about what we want, but we are not taking action. Once you've taken action, you can take statements like this:
"I want to live a healthy lifestyle."
"I want to look good."
You can change these statements in real action. The difference between wanting and doing is the practice of setting goals. These statements can be a goal with slight changes. They might look like this instead:
"I'm going to work for work in a day."
"I'll have lunch at home a few days this week so I can not eat fast food every day."
These statements are simple. They do not take a lot of effort, but they will greatly affect your lifestyle. If you can make these statements, you are on track to set real goals. If you can make these statements true, you are achieving the goals and achievements.
What's the difference between simply wanting something and actually getting it? It comes back to the limits. Do you want something great? We want all things in life. Some of us are getting what we want, while others continue to want.
The only difference is the goal. Setting goals means you're really going to do something to get what you want. If you set goals and achieve goals, you're successful. So when you break it down, it leads to real success in setting real goals.
