Key to Success: Setting Goals

      A lot of people procrastinate, thinking that they will do it later when the time comes. But the reality is that the right time never comes for them.

      Goal setting is important and to show why it is important, let us take an example: Consider a dark empty room with a football in some area of that room. Your objective is to find the football in that dark room. Obviously, you will take some time in finding the football and there will be some difficulty in finding it. But what if I switch ON the light of that room? You will find the football within seconds. This is how the goal setting works. If you don't set goals in your life then your life will be as difficult as the first case. But, when you have set your goals, then your life will be as easy as the 2nd case.

      Also, we should be focused on our goals. Setting the goals and not working toward it, is a bad idea. It will not yield anything. Now you maybe thinking, what could drive you to achieve your goal? The answer is simple. Let's look into life and analyze something to get to your answer.

      What if someday, God appeared before you and said that, you have only 1 year until you die. What will you do? Will you waste your year on crying and being depressed? No. At first, you will actually look into your life and think about all the activities, achievements, moments,etc you have done upto now. And then you will realize you have wasted your whole life doing something that added no value to your life and was completely useless. Let's have a look at some things which you should realize.

Here are the Top 5 regrets people have before dying:
  1. I wish I'd had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
  2. I wish I hadn't worked so hard.
  3. I wish I'd had the courage to express my feelings.
  4. I wish I'd stayed in touch with my friends
  5. I wish I had let myself be happier.
      And the question is, if you died the very moment what will die with you? The ideas, the dreams, the talents, all die with you. Don't let the fear of striking out stop you from playing the game. And think about this, 

If you could fail at doing what you don't like or doing what you hate, then you might take a chance and do what you really love doing.

      Realizing this, plays an important role because after that very moment you will start thinking about what you really want to do in life. And believe me, within that one year you will do an exceptionally amazing job. You will spend every minute of your day doing what you really want to do. You will spend more time with your family and loved ones. You will live your life to the fullest. Not only that, by the end of that one year you will achieve something that no one thought you would achieve. Even you will be surprised by your achievements in that year. In the end, you will die happy without any regrets.

      Look within yourself and decide that you are in charge of your destiny. And when you decide that you're going to DO IT, the universe will yield to you and life will never be the same again. You have the power to create machines, power to create happiness and if you decide that your life deserves your developing, master yourself and show the world what you can do.

      You have something special, you have greatness within you and you were born phenomenal. So, become fearless and achieve your goals.

Lastly, I would like to end with a quote saying,

Achieve your goals
