5 Ways To Focus on Goal Setting

Date Published: May 4, 2022

Life is nothing but an obstacle course, it's all about getting through that obstacle course to your desired goal that most people seem to have a problem with. It's only normal to encounter obstacles in the pursuit of your goal. It's kind of a test to see if you're worthy.

However, when these obstacles start to become a nuisance to the point of almost putting a stop to your goal(s); or worse, making you completely abandon your goal altogether, you must take action and think things through. Know that only you can fulfill or sabotage your own goal.  

So, with that said, here are some helpful, tested pointers that will keep your attention focused on achieving any goal that you put your mind to.

how to goal smart

1. Think Positive
This means:
A.  Do not quit. Especially when one is midway in working toward a goal, there should be no room for quitting. To quit is tantamount to going back to the starting line of goal accomplishment. That is time, energy, money, and a whole lot of things wasted and lost. It is more costly to quit than to find a solution to the problem, not to mention the frustration one feels.

Always look at the positive side of the challenges or adversities that you will face on your way to your goals or dreams.

2. Keep a clear, open and tense-free mind
Always be ready to receive new ideas. Focus and concentrate. Think in a wide scale manner and always be open to new options to eliminate the particular obstacle you are currently dealing with. 

3. Persist and Persevere
Be sure to exhaust every possibility, even to the point of trial and error, just to be sure that there is a solution to correct the problem you're dealing with. If Plan A fails, then you should have Plan B, C, D or even E. It is my personal mantra to hope for the best but prepare for the worst. This way, you do not get disappointed easily when things don't go your way. 

Try to picture inside your head a possible solution to help overcome and/or solve the obstacle that's setting you back.

And remember, Do not let small disappointments get in the way of your big dreams. Yes, there will be a lot of disappointments here and there on your way to your goals or dreams but remember that these are all part of it. Better learn from them so you will be wiser every step moving forward. 

5.Ask for Help
If all fails, get assistance from others you know who are more knowledgeable on the work being done. Their suggestions might not necessarily be the exact ones you were hoping to hear, but they may trigger some NEW ideas in finding the right solution to your problem.

I wish you the best in reaching.
