Setting Your Goal _ The Process _ Of course even before you are ready to set your goals, you should know what you are trying to achieve. This is the essential first step. The kind of goal you are setting for yourself will naturally depend on this. And not just that, you must also have a clear idea about how far in the future you want to achieve these goals. Broadly, goals could be either \"long term\" or \"short term\". Of course you can have both a long term as well as a short term goals. A good approach could be to have a long term goal and a clear road map to achieve this. In other words, you can set various short term goals that will take you progressively towards your bigger long term goal.
Setting Goals is Powerful _ Why do we need to set goals and use them? Are they important? The answer is that when you set objectives for yourself, you create the future in advance. You form your destiny and shape your life. Whether we know it or not, we all have goals. As a result, know that your goals are affecting you. The problem is that some people have lousy goals. Those get you through the day, the week, the month or help you pay the bills but are not the kind of objectives that inspire you or make you jump out of bed in the morning. These goals do not create the drive you need to achieve something greater. You must realize that very few people have a particular plan or even written goals. So, when you set goals, I mean real aims, you can create the power to grow, develop and expand your success. You must have something out there that is compelling enough to draw you forth and transform your life.
