Without this would you achieve your goals?

Have you remembered what our teacher's emphasis was when we were in school?

They would start with the basics. I always believe in simple things and basics. Everything has its own basics. A fundamental. A person wants to get success in life needs to stick on those fundamentals. A business has its own basics, a sport has its own, Yoga has its own, and every art like painting, music has its own. What happens when you start something new to learn? They teach you the basics first. In fact, it is always the basics. Basics are simple and easy to do. 

Do the basics sufficient to achieve big goals? 

Of course, yes. Basics, when done repeatedly, bring big results.

For example when you do physical activities every day for 6 months, for a year, or for 5 years, imagine what effect it will bring to your health.

Daily sales call done for 6 months or for a year or for 5 years, imagine what effect it will bring to your sales.

Daily readings for a half an hour to one hour, what will it do to your knowledge? Will it bring efficiency and effectiveness to your work.

The list can go on. Basics indeed are essential. And what does it take to implement these basics?  

It requires discipline. It requires self-discipline. Without self-discipline dreams and goals are merely wishful thinking. It is the self-discipline which differentiates between achievers and non-achieves, between performer and non-performer, between top salespeople and fair salespeople. Self-discipline differentiates a professional from an amateur.  

If you are not self-disciplined every single day, it will bring sporadic and weak results. Weak results give discouragement and disappointed resulting in the erosion of self-confidence.

What happens, when a person starts a new business or a new course to enhance his or her value or learning guitar or sketching or a new sport? He or she starts with great excitement; he or she is given basic lessons, which require patience and self-discipline. Once this self-discipline is not practised, it produces weak results and after some time the person is so discouraged, as the expected results are not coming forth-he or she finally quits. It is not that person’s intention was not good, but he fails to practice self-discipline on a consistent basis, on a daily basis.
So, the key to goal achievement is-on which another principle of success is dependent-basics practised with self-discipline every single day. Without self-discipline, you won’t achieve your goals.

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…
