Having known yourself and set goals to achieve for your life, you may be tempted to divert from your goals.
Some ways to help you achieve such goals is to:
v Design a Personal Journal to write down your Goals
The most difficult challenge about goal achievement is to get started.
One way to checkmate that is to write down your achievements and tasks you will accomplish per day. Your Goals must have a specific time for achieving it whether it is a short term or long term goal.
It may take you 10-15 minutes to write down each day’s progress while revealing to you how daily small steps bring you closer to your target.
Also, it removes the temptation of not doing anything each day since you know you have to put down something at the end of the day.
v Describe Your Goals in details. Be as specific as possible
For instance, consider these two goals. “ I will go the University” and “ I will go to University of Lagos in 2009 to study Economics”
The difference between these sentences is that the first is an idea while the second is a goal.
v What are the benefits of achieving Your Goal
- to contribute to community development with my knowledge
- to help improve my family status
- to help in the work of God financially and intellectually
v Believe in Yourself
The number one problem that keeps people from winning is lack of belief in themselves. Napoleon Hill once said “whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve” It doesn’t matter how big your dreams are, once you believe YOU can achieve them, then you will.
v Be 100% Responsible for the Outcome of Your Dreams
Most people are yet to discover themselves because they are busy casting blames on their parents, state of the economy, poor educational system, lack of job, lack of sponsorship for their dreams, poor self esteem, etc.
Even when most people take that bold step to discover themselves and set wonderful dreams for themselves, they quickly resort to blaming that person or the other when their expectations are not met.
You must be willing to accept that whatever happens in the course of achieving your dreams is your responsibility. The mistakes, blunders, oversight, etc are your creation.
