To have a goal is like having a road map. It shows you where to go, and where not to go. It provides a focus that otherwise might see you doing things that contribute nothing to your end goal.
Would you begin a trip to an unknown city without first looking at a map? Probably not.
Amazingly though, many people conduct their lives without any personal road map to success. Goals are like a map. They help us determine where we want to end up, and give us personal direction on which to focus our energy.
Once you decide what it is you want, break down each step you need to take and start taking action to achieve it. This "action" is the commitment on your part.
And, once you are committed to a goal, really committed, problems are short term. As you re-evaluate your progress towards your goal you will find that you can change some of the action plans to counter any challenges you are facing.
With your entire "focus" on your goal, you will reach levels of achievement that you never thought possible.
Without goals, you will end up going nowhere, or, you will end up following someone else's map!
Never lose focus on your end goal. Develop your map today - set your goals and focus!
