There is no man in life without a goal. There is surely something each and everyone of us wants to achieve.



There is a reason you wake up in the morning and head into the hustling and bustling milieu of the city. It is your goal for that day or for days ahead. These goals are your purposes in life. These goals when achieved make you feel fulfilled. Be it spiritual, financial, social or emotional aspect of life.

If you are tired of life, if you can't wake up in the morning with burning desire to do things, to achieve things, to make things happen, your problem is...you don't have a goal.

Whatever your objectives, desires, purposes and goals in life, you can achieve them, if you believe you can.

We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.
-Goethe

Before starting out on that goal, do you love it? Will achieving it make you happy and fulfilled? Take time to ask yourself those questions.

Remember, Rome was not built in a day.
Journey of a thousand miles begins with a step, as CONFUCIUS put it.

You must have set your goal(s), but how do you achieve it(them)?

Ways To Reach Your Goals: (1) Envisioning

Everything is formed twice. First in the mind. Form a mental image of the outcome. Mind you, do not put one eye on the result. If your goal, for example is to lose weight, every morning after you wake up, envision yourself as lean, fit person, full of vitality and boundless energy.

If your goal is to be a better speaker, envision yourself standing in front of your audience, speaking with charisma and receiving standing ovation.​

The clearer the picture, the more effective the process. Mind is the ultimate treasure house of power. Picturing your goal would open a gateway to the actualization of your desire.

Ways To Reach Your Goals: (2) Pressure yourself

Get some positive pressure on yourself. Don’t fall into the trap of letting your goal slips back into your old ways. Pressure is not always a bad thing. It will inspire you to achieve great ends.

Let your back be up against the wall and tap the wellspring of human potential that lies within you. To do this, make a pledge to yourself, others around you. Once you make it known to the third party, that will create a pressure in and on you to work towards its fulfillment. Except you want to look like a failure who could not walk his talk. Train your mind to associate pleasure with good habit and punishment with bad ones.

What I usually do at this stage is, I set a reminder with alarm tone on my phone and laptop and also tell a friend about it. It(alarm) or they(my friends) will surely remind me of what I said I would do.

Ways To Reach Your Goals: (3) Time Frame

Don’t ever, I mean ever set a goal without attaching a timeline to it. Goals not committed to paper are no goal at all. Get a book, call it your dream book and fill it with all your desires, objectives and dreams. Get to know yourself and what you are all about. Know your strength, weaknesses, your hopes and your dreams.

If yours is financial freedom, get a separate bank account, that has no credit card, and make sure you save at least ten percent (10%) of your monthly income into it every month or as soon as you get your salary.

Ways To Reach Your Goals: (4) Magic rule of 21

For a new behavior to crystalline into a habit, you have to perform it for twenty-one days in a row. It has been proven physiologically.

To uninstall a bad habit, direct so much of your energy to the new habit that the old one slips away from you. The installation of new habit complete in about twenty-one days, the time it takes to create a neural pathway.

Ways To Reach Your Goals: (5) Enjoy The Process

Enjoy the process. A day without a laughter or love is a day without life.

Have fun while you are advancing along the path of your goals and purposes. Never neglect to see the exquisite beauty in all living things.

This moment that you and I are sharing is a gift. Remain spirited, joyful and curious. Stay focused on your lifework and on giving services to others. Nature truest law will judge.
