Knowing, Setting, and Working Your Goals

Posted on January 3, 2008 by Hye

Another new year had started. Let me ask, had you already defined and set your goals for the future or you just welcomed the year with no plan or purpose at all?

Let's admit, most of us hope for a change in life- better than our present situation. Some hope for better family life, finances, relationships, career, etc. So how can you obtain a better life if you have no goals at all?

In my opinion, knowing what you want and setting your goals are probably the two most important things in life. If you have no plans at all or if you're living your life "just as is", then definitely, you will not move forward for a better life. You will just stay as who you are, being inert in one place.

You have to define and set your goals. However, knowing and setting your goals is not enough. Of course, you have to pursue your goals and work them out. Be sure your goals are something you really want. If you do, then there's no doubt you can work toward the success of your aspirations.

Lastly, in knowing, setting, and working your goals remember these three inspirational quotes:

"To know yourself is the first and most important step to pursuing your dreams and goals." Stedman Graham

"Without the vision of a goal, a man cannot manage his own life, much less the lives of others." Genghis Khan

"The difference between a goal and a dream is the written word."
Gene Donohue
