Goals- everyone has them, most achieve them. We always hear the words "dedication", "hard-working", and "committed" associated with the word Goal. What you should hear are the words "tough", "effort", and "achievable". Here's why:
-Goals are tough. They are meant to be a challenge. Tough doesn't have to physical, but rather may be a mental game in a series of events. Tough can be asserted many different ways that allow us to reach our goals. If you can pinpoint the tough you can work through it. When you work through it you will notice the goals begin to become a reality.
-Goals need Effort. The old saying of "you get what you give" comes to mind in this case. If you're headed for a goal you need to give that goal some of your time. Cultivate the improvement of the goal by putting your best foot forward. Sometimes it's tough to do, but the rewards of reaching the goal will surpass any momentary satisfaction you may encounter when not giving your full 100%.
-Goals are Achievable. If you think your goal is not achievable step back and reconfigure its purpose. The reason for a goal is to improve upon something. In order to improve you must put in the effort and figure out what is tough about it. Knowing these intricacies then leads you to the steps you need to achieve the goal. If you haven't taken the right steps you probably won't get to the goal. It's all in the planning!
