Have you ever consider why the hype about goal setting and vision boarding; especially this time of the year? Well, the truth is, it is not a hype. Many persons are however experiencing the manifestation from writing down their goals and creating a vision board that actually works. If you should go back to the bible, over 20 references were made in regards to setting goals (having plans for the future).
I strongly believe that it is God's desire for you to be successful in life. He laid the foundation for you. According to Proverbs 16:9, "The heart of man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps". Hebrews 11:1 reminds us that " faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see". The future is planned for based on your faith. When you set goals, it shows that you are acting in faith.
With that foundation, I believe that every person should write down his or her goals. Business goals, personal goals, income goals, and whatever you want to achieve in your life. If you want to achieve something in life, don't just think about it. Write it down.
Having a goal sitting in your head may not help that much. Every book says that you need to write down your goals. First thinking about the goal is a good way to start but again, you need to write it down as soon as you think about it. Don’t believe me, read Habakkuk 2.
What is it that you want to accomplish?
Think about this in your mind and come up with the exact goal that you want to get. For example, let's look at a person who wants to earn $1000 in the next 30 days online. Here is what he or she needs to do.
The first step is to write down the goal of earning $1000 in the next 30 days. So that's done. Good.
Next what you will want to do is to write how you are going to achieve this goal. You should figure out by now that you will want to find someone who has already done this before. Having a burning desire will also help you get to your goal.
Write down why you want to achieve this goal. For some, it is just having that extra income to help them pay for a car payment. For others, it may be that they want to save money. Whatever your goals are, write down why you want to achieve them.
Another point to consider is to have complete faith in yourself and your desired goals. You need to have faith because if you don't, you may not achieve your goals at all. You may have written them down, but it means nothing if you kick out your belief in achieving this goal from your "belief" system that is sitting there somewhere in your head. You need to have faith that you can reach any goal that you set.
After you achieve a particular goal, don't forget to give yourself a pat on the back. Give yourself some sort of reward. Once you achieve your first goal, you can accomplish any of your future goals in life. It should give you some sort of motivation to write more and more goals down.
Now, what would happen if you don't reach your goal? This can happen to anyone who sets goals. The best thing that you will need to do is to learn from this situation and think about what you can do next time to achieve that goal.
If you fail once, try again. If you fail the second time, then try again until you reach your desired goal. But don't take the same action. Learn what you did wrong in the first trial and try something different.
