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.\"
Failure is Not an Option _ \"In achieving your goals, you may run into roadblocks. Don\'t let that stop you, go around, over, or under. If you are committed to your goal you will find a way.\" _ Catherine Pulsifier. By deciding from the very beginning that failure is not an option you set yourself up for success. Use your desire and drive to accomplish your goal; imagine how wonderful your life will be with the completion of your goal. Or perhaps contemplate the opposite: how unfulfilled and stressful your life is without it. Regardless of the method of motivation, you must never quit trying to reach your goal. Stay Positive _ \"Life\'s ups and downs provide windows of opportunity to determine your values and goals. Think of using all obstacles as stepping stones to build the life you want.\" _ Martha Sinetar. Despite all the previous steps that you\'ve followed to prevent any roadblocks from showing up on your path to success you will still inevitably run into them. But I have one piece of advice for you: don\'t get discouraged. Recognize that every set back and obstacle is an opportunity for improvement and learning. Recognize the benefits of being where you are right now: whether it\'s learning how to budget or live a healthy lifestyle; there is a positive to every situation.
