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.

We all have dreams, some have big and some have small, but all have dreams. Our destiny is determined by what we do with our dreams, whether we go after it to make it true or we don’t follow it blaming the outer circumstances. We Claim that our situations are different from others. We make a hell lot of excuses why we can’t make an effort to live our dreams. There may be many reasons for not living our dreams, and one of the chief reasons is feeling embarrassed for not achieving what we set out and declare to achieve. What people will say if I fail? In our childhood days, we are trained to feel embarrassed about our failure. We heard sentences umpteen times by the time we are grown, ‘all your friends will laugh if you fail.’ ‘Don’t you feel shame on your failure?’ Over a period of time we start believing that failure is embarrassing. And it is natural to feel embarrassed about failures. It becomes so deeply embedded in our subconscious that we fail to realize that with this thought we…
This is the biggest impediment in self-development and growth. God has made every individual well-packed with unique ingredients that are needed to live a dream life and made an impact on this world.But, why it does not happen in real life, in the practical life, in the day to day life? The root cause lies in our belief system. It is our belief system that is posing the biggest hindrance in accomplishing the goals we set for ourselves and living our dream life.In the name of practicality and pragmatic approach we forgo many wonderful opportunities that life gives us. Okay, now it is a well-known fact how our belief system develops? It is developed by the association we are in and the books we read. Yes, there is a great impact from the books, motivational videos, association.But the greatest of all these factors are; what we say to ourselves day in and day out. What we think about ourselves. What we believe what we are capable of doing?Give time to know and be aware of yourself, take …
In the process of achievement, we tend to overlook some of the basic questions. When we make a list of goals-desires/dreams with deadlines-we must keep in mind the order. What do we want to be? What do we want to do? What do we want to have? In one of my classes a student expressed her desire, ‘I want to be a bestselling writer?’ Now, she wants to achieve a goal that tags her as a bestseller writer. The number one the thing she will have to do is to think and feel that she has all the ingredients in her that are required to be a best seller. The process of achievement starts with the thought process. All the changes happen inside first then only outside change will take place. Number two: learn about the bestseller writer, what is their daily routine, what they do daily? How do they develop the habit of writing? Stick to the routine until you achieve your goal. It sounds simple. Isn’t it? Of course, it is simple. You might ask this question, ‘if it is so simple why do most people fail to achi…
