Set Time Limits. All things become possible if you give it enough time. What sets goals apart from wishes is that goals have a specific time limit. You need to have some short_term and some long_term goals. Where do you see yourself in 6 months? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? You need to ensure that your long_term and short_term goals gel. You can also break your long_term goals down into smaller goals and set time limits on achieving each step. This will increase your overall productivity as regards your goals. \"People with clear, written goals, accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine.\"
Would it surprise you to know that your self_esteem (the value you place on yourself) determine whether you reach your goals or not? The opposite is equally true: Setting and achieving realistic goals will boost your self_esteem substantially. Don\'t believe me? Just think about the last time you struggled to master a new skill. At the very point of exasperation, when you are at your wits end, if you persevere despite being sorely tempted to give up... Suddenly, miraculously, it all falls into place... Did you feel smart, surprised, rewarded, fulfilled, elated and as if you were going to explode with pride? Did you feel like you could easily build on this achievement? That\'s how you\'ll feel every time you set and achieve a personal goal. It will be even more satisfying if you focused your energies purposefully onto achieving something specific and concrete. \"Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass _ to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that?\" Anthon St. Maarten
