Setting And Meeting Your Goals

Goals can be met if they are set in a realistic context.

It's easy to make resolutions, set goals, and make plans for the future, but most of us find it difficult to acknowledge that we sometimes set our goals a little higher than we should and then struggle to meet them. Sometimes we get frustrated and quit or we let other things get in the way of what we are trying to accomplish.

The important thing, though, is putting forth the effort to meet your goals. You may not meet all of them this time around, but what matters most is that you actually tried to establish a credible, workable plan.

Goals can be met if they are set within margins that are not too far from attainability. You should set your goals based on the priorities in your life or business. Never set them too high, but don't make your goals so easy to meet that they can be reached without much effort. You should base your goals on what you see as important in your life and/or in your business.

Everyone has ideas that they think can make a positive impact on their lives, their families, and on their business if they have one. What you try to accomplish has importance, not just to you, but for others around you. Setting goals can help you bring your ideas to fruition.

Around the first of each year, many people take out their pencil and paper, their notebooks, and yearly planners to map out their goals and new years resolutions. This is a great way to start the year, but many never reach their goals. This is because they set goals that are unrealistic or they get sidetracked by other things in life. And some people make goals just for the sake of making goals. They really, honestly, have no intentions of trying to meet them.

Your goals should include a strategy for increased personal savings, investments for retirement, and insurances for medical and dental expenditures. This is very important, especially if you decide to go into business for yourself.

Try to keep you eyes on what you feel is the prize and when you meet your goals, don't hesitate to pat yourself on the back. Meeting a goal, especially a hard earned goal, is reason to celebrate.
