Do you have a proper plan of action to achieve your goals?


The next step of set goal and how to achieve is having a proper plan of action.
The previous day I was talking to a person. In the discussion, he revealed that he wants to purchase a car that costs about 40 times what is his present income.
‘Do you think his goal is achievable?’
I do think his goal is achievable but I think the plan he has is a bit challenging. It’s all about affordability. His goal will take a too long time to be achieved. Else he needs to have different plan-a plan to increase his earning capacity. He needs to earn more to afford that car.
This is one of the reasons for failure to achieve the desired goal. You will not reach the destination if your vehicle is not suitable.  
When I ask people about their dreams, they will usually tell big dreams like owning Mercedes Benz, Ferrari etc. but what is unfortunate is they don’t have any proper plan of action. If the proper plan is not in place what to execute.
I am not saying you should not have big dreams. There is nothing wrong with big dreams. However, you must educate yourself and enhance your value at the market place. The more valuable you are the more earning capacity you will have. You need to invest your time and money on your education. You must sacrifice or delay your gratification.
If you are in a business, you need to improve your quality of service. It is the quality and service which differentiates one successful businessperson from the rest of them.
There are people who go to the workplace and work hard. But they don’t know they need to work hard on themselves.
You need to work hard on yourself, you need to work to enhance your skill set, and you need to work increase your capacity. And above all, you need to have a proper plan of action to work upon. Without a proper plan of action, your goals will become merely wishful thinking. I know you will not let it happen. I know you can work hard to make your dream true.
If you want to increase your income, you can start a part-time job or business along with your regular job to supplement your main income.
Today, the world has become a global village which has opened a plethora of opportunities. Find out what excites you and start working on the project.  
When is the best time to start something new?
Right now. Right now is the best time.
Keep growing.

Have Single-Minded devotion To Your Goal

To succeed in your mission, you must have single-minded devotion to your goals.                                                                                                A.P.J. Abdul Kalam
Once you are clear about your dream, you can make it your goal.
How can you make your dream your goal?
When it comes to goal setting, it should be divided into short term goals and long term goals. There is no such categorization which goals can be short term goals and which can be long term goals. You can keep those goals under short term which can be achieved in one year. Long term goals are your dreams. The goals that you want to achieve 2 years down the line or 5 years, 10 years or 20 years down the line. Goals like owning a beautiful house with beautiful garden having swimming pool, at calm or serene place, plenty of space to play with children and spouse, owning fleet of luxurious cars, owning stud farms, exotic vacation, optimum health, financial freedom, time to pursue recreation activiti…

Be aware of your dreams and Goals

Hi, my name is Kumar. I am working on a mission to help people realize their true potential and live their dream life. Yesterday, I was with a group of 5 young executives, who was working for the last 5 years in one of the reputed banks of this country. I asked them, “Do you know what the difference between dreams and goals is?” Surprisingly, they answered in negative. They are among the top 10 per cent of the population when it comes to earning. I know they are hardworking and bright and in a couple of years, they will be handling important assignments like in-charge of the branch. So, I was expecting them to know regarding dreams and goals. But when they could not answer, I remember what Brain Tracy once said, “Most people fail to set goals, because they do not know.” Today we are living beyond the information age where we are bombarded with information. So, it is easier to access this kind of information. Probably, the flip side of it is it has made these things complicated. However…

Take action for your dream

There are several traits which take to be successful in life. You need to have dreams and goals. You need to have a plan to achieve those goals. There are people who have a positive attitude, positive thinking, a burning desire, clarity of goals, and the entire essential ingredients required to be successful in life. However, they are not where they want to be and doing what they should be doing.  Then what is that mission link? The missing link is the effort. The effort made on a consistent basis.
         Jim Rohn, a famous motivation speaker and author, says “Affirmation without discipline is an illusion.”
       If you have everything but you do not have self-discipline, your dreams and goals will go away from you. This lack of action will not produce the desired result, resulting in discouragement and depletion of self-confidence.
