5 Key Points to Accompish your Goals

Before I started self actualizing. I always had big dreams and goals. Never wrote them down, but I had them in my mind. I thought with that attitude I was going to make it happen. Although, now I realize it is the other way around. People, in general, want to realize their goals, including me. But, they fail at the very beginning, with the goal setting process. And I think that shouldn’t happen. So, today I am going to help you to improve your goal setting. To make your goals, come true.

The basics

To start, we are going to discuss the basics. To make goals more clear you firstly will have to write them down. Make those goals big. And with big I mean really big. So, you only are 60% sure of it. Even if, you want to become the president of America ;) Because I know you can accomplish anything. Not a couple, but a lot. For example, a thirty (Honestly, I myself can only come up with twenty). Later on, you will see that some goals are not that well fitted for your lifestyle. So, you can crap those. But you will have some goals left. Which you can really focus your valuable time and energy on. Know I am going to explain a system to accomplish goals faster. And make them more clear to you.

SMART-SYSTEM by George T. Doran

To make your goals even better apply this fascinating system. Which I will now explain;

S    Specific (simple, sensible, significant).
M    Measurable (meaningful, motivating).
A     Achievable (agreed, attainable).
R    Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based).
T    Time bound (time-based, time limited, time/cost limited, timely, time-sensitive).

S. Stands for Specific. When writing goals down. Try to be specific. Answer questions like;

    What do I want to accomplish?
    Why is this goal important to me?
    Who is involved?
    Where is it located?
M. Measurable. Goals have to be measurable to know when you accomplished the goal. For example, Getting a salary of 50.000 dollars this month. Or getting 200 followers on Twitter.

A. Achievable. Your goals has to be achievable. As I said before, I use the 60% sure rule. Because I know you and I can accomplish way more that we think. But to be successful, you will have to know that it is achievable.

R. Relevant. Some people, want to become president others won’t. It is the lifestyle of yours that sets the goals in your life. You know what you want to become (If not, stay tuned for another blog post, later on). So, set goals that focus on that. If you have set a goal with doesn’t fit you. Just, crap it.

T. Time bound. With every goal you will have to set a specific time to finish it. Otherwise, you won’t be that productive in your life. Want to finish it in a week, Go for it!. Two months, Go for it! But, make sure you know how much time you need, and than set it slightly earlier. To challenge yourself ;)

This concept, has worked really well for me. Try it out, and let me know what you think of the system of George T. Doran! Keep in mind to focus on your own dreams.

 Have a nice day! And subscribe to my blog, if you haven’t (on the left side of this blog post)

The importance of reading

Today we are going to discuss the importance of reading. Reading has been in our lives since the middle ages but it faded away in the begining of this century. Mainly under teenagers it isn't popular anymore. Therefore I wanted you to show the importance of reading. Because a lot of people don't see the use in books nowadays. So let's get started,
Reading has a lot of benefits to the mind. The first benefit is that the mind needs the practice of reading to sense the words it sees. It develops the ability to connect the words to images in the head. So how more you read how faster and better you will read. And it will give you a bigger arsenal of vocabulary. Further reading create the ability to focus better and really listen to people in general. Because you train your brain to concentrate on one thing at a time. It also improves your memory because when we read, we are using our memory muscle. Joseph ones used a great metaphor, which explains it all;
Reading is to the m…

Live in the moment

During my life, most of the time I noticed awareness just slipped away like sand. I couldn’t get grip on it. And I wanted to live in the moment, for ever. Every time I tried to just focus on it. But I noticed it didn’t work, so I tried a lot of methods. As a result, I found that 6 of those acts were really good. So today, I am going to share 6 tips which are going to give you more joy in live. Because when you live in the moment, there is no-one stopping you ;)

These acts which will help you live in the moment,

1, Breath. Just breath. Focus on your breath. Close your eyes, or not, it is up to you. Feel the air flow through your throat getting in your lungs. Feel it, giving you the energy you need. In the long run the energy will give you a boost which will result in your mind living in the moment.

2, Stop over-thinking about it. Although it is a hard method. When you get hold on this one, it will improve your awareness. Because of the fact that thinking to much about it is bad, you w…

Why you should never compare yourself with other

I really was a shy twelve-year old (I know that is a long time ago). And during that time, I spent most of my school days comparing myself to others. But after a while, actually years, I finally opened my mind and saw that comparing really is a bad thing in life. Comparing is what sugar is for your health. It ruins attitude towards yourself. In my case, it really destroyed me. But, today I want to show you why you should not compare yourself, and where you should focus on. So let’s get started!

Comparing is never fair.
We all have a different past. We all are different.Maybe that someone has so much money because he started saving on an early age. As a result he has now more money, so what. Let your past be and focus on now. Or maybe your neighbor has a great six-pack. Don’t worry about it you are a good person, it doesn’t matter if you don’t have that six-pack. You will get there, if you want to. After all comparing will just never be fair. Because of the fact that we all are differe…
