We are coming to the end of 2015. However, I think it is important no matter what year it is to achieve your goals. If you haven't achieved them then, you keep working at it until you do. It can be hard to stay focused on them sometimes. Life can be pretty busy and sometimes things don't go as we have planned. Our goals get set to the side or even forgotten. Our emotions go up and down as if they are on a roller-coaster ride. Fear can set in to. What if we don't achieve our goals? This is something that can plague the best of us.
The key is to stay focused on them. How many of us have wrote them down only to have forgotten them. We cannot forget what we want to achieve. If we do, they will be like dreams that were once in our memories only to vanish because we didn't pay attention to them anymore. We shouldn't forget our goals. Why? Because they are too important. These are things that we can do if we set our minds to it. It's never to late to get started. Find those list of goals and start working on them so you can start checking them off the list. There is no need to wait for a new year to get started. Do not wait get started today.
In the blog post,"How To Be Positive Even When You Think You Can't" Remember I told you that the book,"Write It Down Make It Happen" was on my list of books to get. Well, I got it. I am so happy. Because this was a goal and I was able to achieve it. Yes, it is a small goal but that doesn't matter. The important thing is I set a goal and I achieved it. In fact, I am reading it right now. I am on page 92. This book is helping me with achieving my goals. It has so many inspiring stories and it also shows you how you can do the same by writing your goals down no matter what they may be. That's what I really like about it.
I know that sometimes we set time limits on our goals. That is okay to do, but don't get discouraged if you don't achieve it by that time. Just set a new time limit and go from there. Don't write your goals down and set them to the side. Look at them often. If you can at least once before you go to bed. This way you won't forget about them. I believe this is the number one reason why we don't always achieve them. It is because we have wrote them down and have forgotten all about them. Also, you must have some patience as well. The things we want are really worth waiting for. At least, I think so. I think because we are always so hasty a lot of the times we settle for things that we know deep down in our hearts are not good for us. That's why somethings that we don't get are really a blessing in disguise.
For me goals aren't just about material things. It's about being a better person as well. You can set goals to be more patient. Not to get angry over stupid stuff. To do less complaining. To be more appreciative. To be less judgmental. It's nice to see how you are evolving as a person. Improving oneself also helps us to achieve the goals that we want. Of course it's a lot of work and it is continual but it is so worth it. Don't you think so?
I have added another thing to my list which I think will aid me in being more focused on my goals. It is the The Clever Fox Planner.
Actually, this will be my first planner. I have never used one before but I believe it will help keep the structure and the focus I need to help me better accomplish my goals.
Don't know what goals you want to achieve lets make a list of some now:
- To be a better blogger
- To get more traffic to your blog
- To come up with more content to write
- To grow your community
- To write blog posts in less time
- To have more fun blogging
- To take your blog to the next level
- To get started blogging if you haven't already
- To eat healthier
- To be more focused
- To be more consistent
Working towards our goals gives us something to look forward to. Also, to focus on. Many times we are so focused on things that we are unhappy about that we don't focus on the things that we are happy about. Then, we wonder why we are attracting things that we don't like. Focus on your goals. The things that you want to be doing and God-willing you will be doing.
So, remember no matter what year it is it's never to late to achieve your goals. Find and dust that old list of goals you have written and start checking them off that list. What goals would you like to achieve? What goals have you already achieved? Share them with me in the comments below. May all your goals come true!
