This is something everyone on this earth does, every day, throughout their lives. This is taught even before we understand the real education system. Until we graduate, how many time we need to answer such questions like whom we would like to become in the future, where do we see ourselves in next 5 or 10 years etc.? We paid less care on those questions back then, and loved to give the answers as well as that made us intrigued when we pictured the future us. Time is slipping pass our fingers in a split second these days, and before we know it, years have gone by, even passing the initial goal-setting targets.
This is not about achieving the initial targets we set in our childhood, as many of us don’t even remember those anymore. The life teaches us many things every day. Our thoughts change every day. We learn so many things every day. We meet different types of people every day. We read books about stories we have never heard of, every day. So, how do we manage our goals in such a variable lifestyle? How many times we need to change our targets? The answer is, it all depends with the present!
Everything happens around us with respect to time. All the successes and failures have a value with the time they occurred. Think about your life and compare all the ups and downs you have come across in the past. And consider how you experienced those in those times, and how you feel about them now. Automatically, we tend to compare those with respect to the recent experiences in our life. Eventually the real heat of those moments fade away, with time.
How do we keep our goals in tact out of all the disturbances in the world? One of the most effective ways is to limit the intake of outside influences. This has a very tiny edge as the same could be used to motivate ourselves as well. But too much of motivation would end up pushing ourselves to desperation and emotional tiredness. So, understand who you are, and timely change what motivates you more and adjust the amount of time you allow yourself to absorb those information.
After identifying what you could do best to make yourself happy, don’t wait a single moment without driving yourself toward that goal. There is no perfect time as such to start it. The saying “The best time to start is now” is invaluable. Get yourself equipped with all the tools and skills needed before you take the first step toward the journey, because that will protect yourself from falling short and keep the emotional drive steady. Work every moment to fine-tune your strategy of reaching those targets and evaluate yourself in timely manner to convince yourself that you do what you need to do to get there. It’s alright to be a bit hard on yourself, as long as you can keep the passion building in yourself.
So, keep your eyes and ears open to flow information which would help you to elevate yourself to the goals, and infatuate yourself to a limit where you feel that it’s your job to achieve them, and there is no exception.
