Discover why it’s so important to have Goals to be more successful. Start asking yourself the right questions that’ll lead you to your Dreams.
Most adults do not become the profession they envisioned of as kids.
Dreams of becoming a professional football player, doctor or police officer are replaced with jobs in business administration, sales management, and customer service.
As we grow older, we get a better idea of where our strengths and weaknesses lie.
That may mean you slowly move away from the vision of becoming an Olympic gold medalist in exchange for education and a stable career.How to set goals that will help you overcome procrastination. #coach #mentor #MindfulPlanning Click To Tweet
In accepting what’s the most practical, however, we run the risk living a life where we become stagnant.
We stop chasing dreams of success.
We get complacent and fail to set goals to achieve success.
Do you hear a lot that you need to have goals to be more successful?
I hope you do because there’s a lot more at stake than you might think.
Your definition of success
Before talking about goals, let’s take a step back and get clarity about what the word “success” means.
How do you define success? Is it:
- A state of mind?
- Owning the house or car of your dreams?
- Going on vacation to a far destination?
- A raise?
- A job promotion?
- Changing jobs?
- Becoming a volunteer?
- Getting married?
- Having kids?
The options are endless.
Throughout life, the meaning of “success” evolves and changes, which is natural.
New experiences transform our perception of what an ideal life looks like.
That’s why most of us don’t follow the career we dreamed about when kids.
But one thing we can’t lose sight:
We need to know what success means to us to be able to achieve it.
The Success x Goals connection
Let’s say your idea of success involves living in a big house with a swimming pool for the kids and a lounge area for visitors.
What Goals do you need to set for yourself to achieve it?
First of all, look at your current situation.
Some of the questions you can ask yourself are:
- Are you making enough money to buy that house?
- Is your current job ever going to provide the necessary income?
- What changes do you need to do in your lifestyle to save the money?
Once you define what needs to happen in your life for you to become successful, it’s time to set goals.
If you come to the conclusion that your current job position isn’t going to take you closer to your dream, you might determine that you need to apply for a promotion.
It can be your mid to long-term goal.
For the near future, however, what are your next steps?
- Do you have the education necessary for the new job?
- Do you work at a company that supports growth?
- What areas do you need to improve?
The same way as your priorities must bring you closer to your goals; the latter has to guide you towards your vision of success.
