Setting goals gives you the means and the ability to achieve them.
When you begin to define your own goals, in any important area of your life, you develop abilities within yourself. Abilities that you didn’t even know existed! When you set goals for your relationships, finances, career, health, and personal life, you begin to regain control of your life. You become self-sufficient, and you depend less on others to manage your own life. You start making conscious, free and voluntary choices. This is how you become co-creator with God and govern your life. You start taking responsibility for every aspect of your life. You are equally responsible for the positive and the negative aspects of your life.
Taking the time to determine your goals for your future will have a significant impact on your life. Do you know exactly what income you would like make 5 years from now? Where do you want to be in 25 years? All your answers are valid. Only ask yourself this question: do you have clear and precise objectives?
Setting goals improves your self-esteem and increases self-confidence.
When you have clear goals, you immediately improve your self-confidence and self-esteem. According to Nathaniel Branden, author of “The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem,” part of our self-esteem comes from a willingness to feel competent facing life’s challenges. This means that for every goal you reach, you will feel better equipped to deal with some of the life’s problems and challenges. Knowing that you can change your life by setting goals, you’ll be less intimidated by the different setbacks that you will encounter. And we know that we can’t avoid these difficult times.
One of the best signs of personal happiness is directly related to our self-esteem. Achieving our goals is one of the most effective ways to develop our self-esteem.
Setting goals will literally changes your reality. Regardless of whether you reach them or not, setting goals is extremely beneficial. When you establish your goals, it gives you the opportunity to think about your future. It allows you to reflect on your values and helps you discover what really matters to you. Such a process gives you the opportunity to have a broader perspective of your life.
Wish you the best of success!
