Each year many of us make a list of things we want to achieve that year. For some that list is their “New Year’s Resolution”. For some that list is the things they want to have or to be – a house, car, get married, etc.
We can call that many names. They are simply goals.
We know there is a sense, or a feeling, that comes with achieving those goals one by one. We may have a sense of contentment, or just a sense of happiness in general.
On the other end, we know there is some feeling of disappointment, or regret – even pain, that comes with failing to achieve those goals.
Here are the ingredients that guarantee us success in achieving just any kind of goals we set to achieve:
We must have a plan of attack. With that, we must know what tools or strategy to employ. This is also the right opportunity to determine the necessary steps, if any, to achieve those goals. You must only have “Plan A” – the Plan to Achieve!
Know what it takes for the attack to be successful. Once you got the tools and laid out the plan, you must gauge what amount of effort it would take to execute the plan. Give it your all. Give up a limb if necessary.
There is only one way to arrive at your destination – the right way. Opportunities will give you options to take. You must be clear of what you want, of how you want it. You get lost without a clear direction.
These are the essential elements we need to achieve our goals. Of course, there are distractions and obstacles along the path.
Our chance of getting distracted away from our goals is very likely without our ability to focus.
