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 activities and hobbies. These are all long term goals.
There are many goals to achieve. But you need to find out your most important goal. Why it is so? Why you must find out your most important goal? It is because it is difficult to concentrate on too many goals at a time. You must find out your most important goals, which is definite purpose. Once you decide your definite purpose, it is easier to focus on that particular goal.
Let me share you my goals. Presently, I have been working on two goals. First, I have been practicing for my marathon run. I will write about marathon in other post. If you are interested or you want to know more about it, you can search in Google. There are numerous good article and information available. I would like to emphasize that Marathon is best thing you can do for your health, it can make you disciplined, boost your self-esteem and many more benefits. An entire book can be written on the benefits of marathon training and its achievement.
My second goal is to write book. These articles which I write and post, is part of that process.
I have started these two goals without having any prior experiences. I had a sedentary life style for more than twenty years. So, running in a marathon is not easy for me. But I firmly believe that I will do it. I had never ever imagined myself as writer. But three months ago I found that this is my true calling. I have started it from very beginning. I am confident that I will achieve both my goals as i am well aware of success principles, and principles of achievement. By applying these principles I will achieve these two goals by the end of this calendar year.
I know if your desire is strong enough and you are focused to your goal single-minded, with no ifs and buts and you take action every day, you will definitely achieve your goals. It is also said once you are ready to do something; you will get help from that corner of the world from where your expectation is least.
Dear Reader, I value your time but if you take out a couple of minutes and give your feedback, it will be a great help not only to me but to the others who will be inspired one day by my story and will make their own.

The other day while interacting with one of the young officers of a corporate world an interesting incident happened. It is not uncommon that I meet many people in the job who show a keen interest in entrepreneurship. They want to become an entrepreneur but for the one or the other reason, they don’t venture into business. So, this young fellow told me that he had many good ideas for business. Then I could remember that I met some of the brightest men or women who were doing very well in their job and they wanted to start their own ventures. Most of them told me that they had many good ideas. Probably, this is the problem. People having many ideas landed in not working in any of the idea. As Napolean Hill writes in his book think and grow rich that ‘one sound idea is all one needs to achieve success.’ I always emphasis getting success is simple. This I could learn and realize after I underwent many failures in life, though these failures helped to become successful. What one needs is…
A person once asked me, ‘why it is so that even after having clarity in my dream and after much effort I am not realizing my dream?’ What I explained to him, am sharing with you. Having clarity in the dream is the beginning of the achievement process. But you need to give your 100% to make your dream true. I, myself, have made an effort for many years for my dreams but in vain. However, the result started pouring in once I gave my 100% to the cause. Remember, when it comes to realizing your dreams it requires wholehearted effort. There should not be any ambiguity in it. There should not be any doubt. Your belief level should be 100% that you will get the result you are striving for. And your belief level will be intact if it is backed by wholehearted effort. I always say that success is realizing your dreams is based on a simple act. What makes success difficult? You will agree with me or when you will work on your dream you will realize that simple is not easy. Doing the simple and imp…
