Being unrealistic about your goals

Being unrealistic about your goals – Define your goals

Everybody wants to be successful in life. However, success does not come on a silver platter. It is also difficult to inherit success. To be successful in life, we have to have a dream. A dream strong enough to give us wings, the desire to achieve our dream.


It starts with setting goals. The following are some tips you can use in order to see your goals with more clarity:


1. Define your goals

Here is a trick question, how do you eat an elephant? The simple answer is, one bite at a time. That is how you approach the journey to your ultimate dream. One step at a time. You lay out a series of steps, which will be your goals toward the achievement of your dream.


2. Set realistic goals

Make sure that your goals are realistic. Every goal you set has to stretch you a little beyond your comfort zone. Being unrealistic about your goals will add excessive amounts of stress over trying to reach a goal that is effectively out of reach.


3. Set a time line

Time lines go a long way in helping you avoid procrastination. In addition to your weekly, monthly, and yearly goals, you may also want to take a longer range view, such as five or 10 years. You add more clarity to your goals, by having identified what you want to achieve, and by what date.


4. Ensure that your goals are measurable

You want to ensure that the goals you set are measurable. For instance, you can say that after one year you want to have three cows and two goats. That goal is measurable. This quantifies what you want to achieve in one year. You will view your goals more clearly if they are measurable.


To have a dream, a purpose in your life is very important. Your goals should be specifically tailored around your ultimate dream, being measurable, achievable, realistic, and time bound. This gives you a clear vision of your future path. So get started, and never give up
