What exactly do you want?


I am a father of two kids, a 14-year boy and 9-year girl, they are always curious, like any other kids, how I spent my time as a kid, about my schools days, college days.
          The previous day my son who has entered into teenage asked me, ‘Dad, when you were in high school, did you know what you wanted to do?’
He knows I help people find out their true passion, set goals and how to achieve these goals.
I told to him, ‘Look son, our time was different. I did not have the exposure you have right now, in our society if a student is scoring above average marks he or she would go for science stream to become engineering or medicine student. So I was also not very clear as life’s circumstances unfolded, my life drifted. I had never had control over my life because I did not know what exactly I wanted to become or do.’
When I crossed my 40 years-now I am 43 years old- I could know what exactly is my passion, that too accidentally-endurance running and writing.
I interact with a large number of people; I ask them what exactly they want in their life. I am not surprised as most of them either do not know the answer or they are in a profession they do not like.
That is the reason I love the goal setting and its achievement process. Because when you set goals you know what exactly you want to do or want to become.
What do I exactly want to be? What do I exactly want to do? What do I exactly want to get? What can I sacrifice to get what I want to get?
These are the questions I used to ask me, as it helps to keep me on track and gives a definite purpose to my life. It gives a road map, I have to follow.
If you are reading this blog, that shows you are searching for something, something to make your life better. I am here to help you find your goals and how to achieve your goals. I wish I had got this guidance when I was in my twenties or thirties. Still, I consider myself fortunate that I got this clarity at least at the age of 40.   
I do not want you to lead a confused life. I want you to have clarity about the above questions, I ask to me and I want you to ask these questions to you and have clear goals and objectives in life.  
I would love to hear your goals in life.
Keep growing.

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…

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…

Make monthly resolutions as you make yearly rsolutions

Like many people, I love making new resolutions. Today is the first day of a new month. Isn’t it exciting to make a new resolution for a month? But when I first thought of a monthly resolution my mind rejected it. One month, only one month what could i achieve in one month. I set a goal of losing weight of 10-12 pounds, year after year without ever achieving it. How is it possible to do it in one month? My dream list includes the purchase of a new home, a new car; it includes exotic vacations with my family. My dream list also includes substantial built of a portfolio in paper assets; it also includes completing my first book. It also includes running ultra-marathon. There are career-related dreams. All these long term dreams would take at least many months together if not years, hence it does not count a month. This was my thinking earlier but now, when I set daily goals, a month provides me with an opportunity to 30 times more than my daily time available to work on my dreams. There…
