Why Goal Setting Is Essential for Success in Life and Business
Goal setting is crucial for getting what you want, whether it’s in business or your personal life.
There is simply no other way to produce real lasting change. Look closely at anything you’ve achieved in your life and you’ll discover that there was probably a thoroughly planned and well executed goal behind it.
Martial Arts contains many secrets to goal settings.
Think about it, from visualizing before breaking a board to the different colored belts we earn, Goals are a big part of Martial Arts and here are the reasons why goal setting is so important.
Goal setting gives you clarity about what you want. Most of us have vague desires floating around in our heads. If you don’t set down in concrete terms exactly what you want, you’ll end up spinning your wheels and getting nothing done. You actually create your goals twice – once in your mind and once later in reality. The clearer the vision in your mind, the easier it is to formulate concrete steps that will get you there.
When you set down a goal and start working toward it, you give yourself a sense of responsibility to see it through. You can easily understand that whether or not you attain your goal has little to do with outside influence and everything to do with your attitude and actions. You can no longer blame others for your failure to get what you want. You become solely accountable.
If you set your goal well, it will give you a concrete action plan. Wishing for things to happen doesn’t do this. You know that you have to get started today and take small steps toward your eventual target. An important part of the goal setting process is breaking up your goals into smaller goals and a daily action plan that will get you there.
Without a goal, how do you stay on target, especially when things go wrong? Making daily progress toward your goal through your action plan gives you the motivation to keep going. You can see how far you’ve come and you know that it would be a shame to turn back. For many people, simply putting your goal into words and getting started is a great motivator.
Without laser-sharp focus, you’re unlikely to ever achieve great things in your life. Having a goal and plan for achieving it keeps you completely focused on what you need to do in order to get there. It’s much harder to be distracted or led astray by shiny objects. If you set goals, you know exactly where to put your energy each day to get it done.
ONE GOAL AT A TIME
Goal setting is important but there’s a right and wrong way to do it. Like any skill, it’s something you need to learn and practice.
Most people don’t learn from their goal-setting mistakes and they continually struggle to attain the goals they desire.
You’re motivated and you’ve got lots of changes you want to make in your life or business, but slow down.
Take it one goal at a time.
