One quote that sums up the requirements of effective goal-setting has something to do with how an individual views excellence. “Excellence is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction, skillful execution and the vision to see obstacles as opportunities.”
It is very easy to have a dream, to wish for something. What’s difficult is getting up and making those dreams more than just a wishful thinking. If one wants to become successful, he must do everything to chase his goals no matter what it takes. There are people who long for success but do not act on it. There are also a few others who seize the every moment and work hard to get to where they want to be. However, there are also many others who either live a life that is already planned for them by their families or who embark on their personal journey without a concrete plan. The latter are called drifters. They are like travelers who wander the world without any clear intentions, without a defined destination. Do you think people like them can be successful? I doubt! Life tough. There’s a lot of competition going on, and if you do not give your best to claim your spot, you will just end up living a mediocre life and regretting it when you’re on your deathbed.
Excellence is a choice. Not everyone braves to follow the path of excellence. They don’t like hardships. They reject competition. They refuse to overcome challenges. They want peace. They choose to settle for less. What they don’t realize is that being excellent in any area of life – business, personal, job, spiritual, family, relationships, etc. is will give them eternal peace and satisfaction.
Now, if you really are serious about achieving excellence, you must do the necessary steps to get there. Here are some goal-setting tips that you can try:
– Have a plan
– Define your objective in life
– Set your direction and don’t stray from it
– Learn from other people’s mistakes
– Likewise, copy the habits and strategies of successful and great people
– Maintain a positive disposition all the time
– Be the first to believe in yourself and in what you can do
– Develop good habits
– Accomplish tasks each day
– Have a support system who can cheer you along your journey
