Reaching for the Goal

by : Anusuya Veth

Can goals be easily reached? This question is in most of our minds. Some tend to think that goals are hard to achieve and that only very clever people can be true achievers!

Remember the saying 'If there is a will, there is a way'? I bet many of you do. For me this is a mantra which makes me believe that whatever I want to do is possible if I put my mind to it.

If you have a dream to make it big in a specific field of work or study, you can if you try. Yes, the focus is on yourself and how hard are you going to work on that aspiration.

Below are some basic steps for working on a goal:

1. Planning

The most essential thing to do as stated by experts is that one must first plan the action for making that dream come true. You can even write the plan down on paper to keep track of the planning process.

2. Read

Reading enriches our mind and adds to our knowledge base. If there is a specific area in which you are looking to excel read up on that topic vastly. Find out how and what you need to reach that goal. It also helps to read about how others have been successful in reaching their goals. In a way it helps to motivate you.

3. Be Positive

Encourage yourself to be positive and work towards the goal. If your goal is to score well for the exam paper tell your mind to focus and be positive.

4. Work Hard

Of course for one to do well in an examination pure positive thoughts are not going to help if the person doesn't work hard. In order to make this goal come real that person has to study and ensure that he or she has the potential to score well for the paper. No pain no gain, remember?

A goal is not something too high to be reached nor something so easily gained if one does not work hard. It all depends on how much you are willing to do to ensure success. Plan your goal, work on it and pretty soon you will be reaching it. Good luck!
