An aimless life is not worth living. I am sure you agree. In everyone’s life there comes a time when one realizes that the carefree days are over. That it is now time to steer your life in a certain direction.
The only difference is that in some people’s life this phase arrives earlier, whereas some people tend to mature at a later stage in life. This is also one way of measuring your level of self-confidence. The earlier you discover yourself, the greater you will accomplish in life which will boost your self-confidence levels.
You set objectives to be met, and targets to be achieved. Pre-planning is also required and certain strategies must be implemented which will help you achieve your desired goal efficiently and effectively. For you to productively reach your destination, it is highly important that your goals are SMART and meet the following characteristics.
- Specific: Narrowing your scope of possibilities to achieve will make your goals more specific. And you will know exactly where to direct your energy.
- Measurable: Goals which can be quantitatively and qualitatively measured are more practical to achieve as they outline the nature of the goal and its specification. This way the desired and the actual outcome can be compared.
- Attainable: Perfectionism will get you nowhere. You’ll end up frustrated if you run after perfection. Because when you will not achieve the ideal situation you will get disappointed thus leading to low self-esteem. Your goals should be within human capacity to achieve.
- Realistic: Practicality and feasibility are to be borne in mind when planning your goals. You should have enough resources to go about putting your plan into action. Do not fantasize. Live in the reality. And believe in making things happen.
- Timely: Who doesn’t know the value of time? It is man’s most prized possession. Time once was gone, doesn’t come back. Time yourself. Keep evaluating whether the journey covered is worth the time spent on it. Time is money.
Pursue Your Goals and Turn Your Dreams into Reality:
Just like the saying goes – practice what you preach. Similarly, if you just formulate goals and do not follow them, they are of no use. Goals give you certain direction in life, to be followed. Make sure that you not only make long-term goals but also include a series of short term plans which will enable you to reach your destination.
Furthermore, it is equally important that you remain steadfast and consistent with your vision in mind. If you don’t pursue your goal consistently, your previous efforts might go in vain.
Believe in yourself that you can achieve the best and nothing but the best. Eventually, when you will see your dreams turn into reality in front of your eyes, your faith in yourself will be strengthened and restored. Achieving what you aspire to be, can do wonders for your self-esteem.
