Goals are a struggle for many people. Why do I say that? Look at the number of goals you’ve set vs. achieved. Look at the goals of those around you and how many of them are being accomplished. People have a hard time achieving their goals and that’s a fact.

I believe the reason why people struggle with goals is that they don’t really understand what a goal is.

The dictionary defines a goal as “the result or achievement toward which effort is directed”. A goal is a result you direct your effort towards.

The root of the word “goal” actually refers to the end point of a race.

When I first began setting goals, I didn’t think of it as an end point of a race. I thought of it as a wish. I would hope it was happening, but I wasn’t certain that it would.

I used to think of a cool idea, wish it would happen, think about it a lot for a period of time, forget about it, and then remember it at some point later when it didn’t happen or when it did happen by accident.

Is this how you set goals? I used to and never achieved any of my goals when I wanted to.

Here is how you should be setting your goals:

  1. Find something to attain in your immediate future. You see, many people believe they need to find their purpose and their lifelong goals first, but the reality is they aren’t doing anything productive now. Get into action, get moving, and then we can think long term. Find a short-term goal to achieve and feel good about first.
  2. Do it.
  3. Identify your main purpose. Think about your “why”. This can be done by identifying your dreams first, and then asking “why” several times until you come to the root reason behind your dreams. For me, it is freedom and helping others achieving freedom.
  4. Decide what you are going to do about your purpose. Set some targets. If this is my purpose, this is what I am going to do to live that purpose.
  5. Make sure those targets are S.M.A.R.T. (Specific, Measurable, Action Based, Relevant, and Time-Bound).
  6. Do this for each area of your life.

At the end of this exercise, you should have 1 or more Specific, Measurable, Action Based, Relevant, and Time-Bound targets for each area of your life.

You will write these down first thing in the morning and at night before bed.

Will your goals change over time? Yes, I hope they do because that mean’s you are growing.

This will be an active process and will change almost daily, the more you learn and grow.

My story is proof that when you begin writing your goals down every single day, you achieve them.

Frequency is king with goal setting.
