You must set life's Goal in these areas


In my last blog, I told you to write down all your goals. Goals should be set for all areas of life.
For example, suppose a person is very successful in his or her career but doesn’t have time to spend with his or her spouse or children. Would you consider it to be a success?
If a person has the potential to earn more money but does not utilize his optimum potential and lives in a financial crisis, would you consider it to be a success?  
Can a person afford to neglect his or her health to earn more money?
The answers are obvious. However, we have entered into a mechanical world. We do things mechanically without thinking, which thwart our chances of utilizing our optimum potential. And when we do things without thinking it easy to miss what is obvious.
What could be the solution? The solution is simple. You need to constantly remind yourselves that you need to improve in each area of life.
Therefore, I firmly believe you should set goals in areas which are enumerated below:
1. Spiritual:   You must give some time to work on your soul. We can do meditation or we can simply be alone in a calm and serene place and spend time with ourselves.

2. Health: You should not-rather you can not- afford to neglect your health. You must do some physical activities every day preferably in the morning, but if you don’t get time, you can do it in the evening. You should also do something for your mental/intellectual health. I do believe reading books which give positivity is the best. However, some of my friends like music, painting, writing etc.

3.  Family: You must have family Goals. My wife always strives to have at least one meal with all the family together. Doing it every day creates great bondage among the family. You can also make morning walk or evening stroll a family event or reading, painting, drawing together also works well. There are many things which can be done together. You can find out and make a choice. Doing things together on a daily basis avoid any kind of Communication gap which is important for a great relationship.
4. Job and Careers/Business: You must do something every day to have value addition in yourselves. This can be done by gathering information and knowledge by reading books, research papers, attending seminars, spending time with mentors that can enhance your knowledge and then applying acquired knowledge in your work so that you can be more effective and productive.
5. Financial: You should strive to reduce expenses. Don’t use credit cards or at least avoid it. Save and invest regularly.
To supplement your income you can part-time business or job.
6. Recreational/others: This is also an important aspect of life’s goal. It rejuvenates you and fuels you to work harder to achieve your goals.

Nothing big can be achieved overnight. It is our daily goal which makes bigger/long term goals possible.

I know many of you would be asking, ‘where is the time to do all these activities?’

It’s ok to ask this question.

I also used to ask this question.

I got the answer I would share in my next blog. I will tell you how I got time to work in all areas of my life.

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.
