The power of goals and what they do

They whip you into shape

Without a plan or a goal, it is way to easy to just give up, and not head on the path you wan’t to be on to achieve your dreams. Your goals will whip you into shape, and force you to be on the right path. You will also have a clear destination, and something that you can focus on, and feel a purpose for.

Suggested by all billionaires and successful people

I cannot stress this enough. So many successful people such as Brian Tracy have suggested goal setting. You can look this up. It is not a joke. Many celebrities also suggest goal setting, and there are many courses out there on how to goal set. I highly suggest Brian Tracy’s who is an amazing successful person.

Can change all parts of your life

Goal setting can change every part of your life. You can set goals in every aspect, from your eating habits your your career and productivity goals. Your goals can also be extremely personalized for you, so you can do whatever you want with your goal, big or small. Even those parts of your life taht seem like they can’t change, sit down and think of some goals. You might be surprised at what you find.

Long term goals

  • Doesn’t take time to make


  • Take longer to achieve

Long term and short term goals are both helpful in their own ways. I suggest doing both, and seeing which works best for you. Short term goals are good for when you want quick results for a quick change. Long term goals are for when you want to make a big change, and you have plenty of stable time ahead of you. They are great for making habits. If you want to learn how to make a habit in seven easy steps, check this post out.
