Dear friend, last week I introduced you to the important topic - Goal Setting. Now here are 6 proven pointers that should be taken into consideration in setting your goals and achieving them.

1.Attitude plays a very big role in setting and achieving your goals. You must ask yourself if any part of you or your mind holding you back from completing your simplest goals. If there is any part of your behavior that is being a hindrance or puts your plans into disarray. If you do have problems in these areas then the immediate thing to do is to address this problem. Solutions may include a visit to a doctor or a counsellor to help you.

2.Successful careers are made by good time management practices. Failing in a career is often attributed to bad time management. Careers require a lot from an individual which often makes the career the life of the individual. Plan how far you want to go into your career.

3.Education is key in achieving your goals. If your goals require you to have a certain kind of degree or require a certain specialization or demand a certain skill to be developed, make plans to get the appropriate education.

4.Your family should never be left out of your plans. If you are just starting out then you have to decide if you want to be a parent or when you want to be a parent. You also have to know if you really would be a good parent and how well you would relate to extended family members.

5.Personal financial situations also play a major role in achieving your goals. Have a realistic goal of how much you really want to earn. You also must be able to create plans or stages by which you will be able to reach your earning potential.

6.The saying -'All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy', is true down to the last letter. Rewarding yourself should be included in your plans.

To start achieving your lifetime goals, set a quarter of a century plan, then break it down to 5 year plans, then break it down again to 1 year plans, then 6 month plans, then monthly plans, then weekly, then daily.

Then create a things-to-do list for the day.

Always review your plans and prepare for contingencies.
The basics of goal setting should not be so difficult once you get to be familiar with them.
