Walt Disney said… “If you can dream it. You can do it.”
Our Life’s boat gets its direction and sail through the goals that we plan. A goal gives our life a deep meaning and helps us to grow more in life. Desire drives us to set our Goals.
By just setting goals and wishfully thinking about it time to time. It remains a vision. It is said that a Goal without a deadline is merely a dream. Goals become goals when they are specific and could be measured. For example “I want to lose some weight” or “I desire a big house” are unspecific goals.
Specific Goals would be “I want to lose 5kg weight in next 3 months” or “I desire 1000sq yards house by December 2017”. Putting a deadline motivates us to achieve each day a bit and walk a step closer towards our goals. All successful people know that the accomplishment and reward that you receive after achieving your goals are just the tip of the iceberg. Underneath lies immense discipline, willpower, hard work, motivation, persistence, failures and rejections.
Another very important aspect of Goal Setting is when goals are set out of selfishness example “If I become a millionaire, I would buy a sports car and house for myself”; it weakens us.
However if Goals are set with an intention to contribute to others example “If I become a millionaire, I would build a school for imparting quality education to the needy”; it strengthen us.
There are stories of succeeding against the odds, persisting in the face of uncertainty, possessing true grit, focusing and maintaining determination to never quit until the goal is reached.
Walt Disney was fired from his first job because he was told that he lacked imagination. He had 300 banks turn down his Walt Disney theme park idea. At one stage, he was bankrupt. He maintained determination and focused on what he wanted to achieve. Today, his movies, merchandise and theme parks are worth billions.
Thomas Edison, an American inventor, had more than 1,000 U.S. patents to his name. However, as a young boy in school, his mind often wandered and his teachers told him that he was “too stupid to learn anything”. He was ultimately taught at home by his mother.
Edison’s greatest accomplishment is the light bulb. He was most famous for the following quote in regards to his persistence in developing the light bulb…
“I have not failed.
I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.
Failures are the part of Success towards Goals Achievement.
