The Secrets Behind Achieving Goals

The Secrets Behind Achieving Goals

There are already millions of words written about the setting and
achieving of your goal, which are practiced by millions of people as well.
But still, most of the goals created are not fulfilled. Here are some
significant tips that will help you accomplish better the goals that you
have.

1) Your goals should be original.
This doesn’t mean that such goals need not to be somehow similar or same
as the other goals of other individuals. It just means that you should have
your own goal, not a second hand one. Many people are practicing to have
their goals based from the expectation and hopes of their cultural norms,
society, parents and teachers. This results to cases that wherein you cannot
hold such goals for long periods of times. Remember that setting a goal
truly means that you should earn fulfilment and happiness as you
accomplish it.
Practice setting goals that are originally yours, not that assumed or
inherited. If it is not just from you, what will be the meaning of it?
Accomplishing them will not give you that happiness and fulfilment in life.

2)Your goals should be inspirational.
Your passion must represent the kind of goals that you have. It should not
be any promise or simple wants that you want. It must be something that
will drive you to strive harder and be fulfilled in the end as you obtained it.
Passion is that something which pushes you to do whatever it takes to have
your goals. It keeps you on the track. It strengthens your concentration and
motivates you. It is the passion that inspires you and leads you to the right
way going to your desired goal.

3)Your goals should be harmonious in nature.
All your goals must be according to your perspectives and dreams in life.
They must not contradict one another.
Do them one at a time since working with them simultaneously will not
help you at all, leaving your stresses out of your way.
Recognize who and what you are. Base from it the set of activities and goals
that you will have.

4)The goals of you must be realistic in nature.
The goals that you will be setting must be accomplishable within a lifetime
framework.
Realistic goal doesn’t mean that you must have the usual goal of everybody.
There are goals sometimes which seem unachievable for everybody but
determined persons were able to do so, such as building a personal
computer at home, attempting to soar high a bicycle using motor and
wings. These goals are attainable and do not let anybody set a limit for you.

5)Have idealistic goals.
The goals of you must be based from your personal ideas and from who and
what you are as of today. They should be created based from the different
aspects of you, such as the environmental and physical, relationships and
emotional, financial and material, ethical and spiritual, and educational
and mental aspects.
Set the goals in accordance to your ideals in life. In this way, you can have a
happy and satisfying result. On the other hand, if you will be having the
unrealistic ones, there’s a great chance that you will end up getting
unsatisfied and bored.

6)Make your goals specific.
You must have a specific goal in order for you to be able to do the right
attack towards it. If you want to be a rich person, specify how you will
consider yourself as a rich person.

7)Your goals should be flexible.
Several individuals miss the chances of gaining their goals because their
concentration with those goals is too extreme and constricted to recognize
better goals as they go.
Ensure that you will concentrate in achieving your goal and not with the
method or ways on how you can have it.

8)You must visualize your goals.
Visualizing your goals in life will help you a lot and will serve as your
motivation through the way. Imagining them makes them more realistic
and believable, thus ending up in energizing you and inspiring you to strive
harder in obtaining them.

9) You should affirm your goals.
You must believe in yourself that the goal that you have is attainable and let
everyone know about it so they can contribute to your achievement
process. Keep it in your mind that if you will not believe in your goal, then
you can never have it. If you will not have passion for it, then you can never
attain success. You must be that someone to speak about your goal.

10) Have a timely set of goals.
It is in time and space where everything exists. Set specific period of time
for the goals to become true or you spend lots of your time in achieving
only one and will never have any fulfilment at all.

11) You must have a list of all the goals that you want to achieve.
It has been proven through studies that people who jot down their goals
have higher ability of accomplishing their tasks rather than those who only
list such goals in their minds. People who don’t have a list of their goals are
more likely to withdraw from the achievement process.
But still there are some individuals who manage to set and achieve their
goals successfully, even without writing them down. Do not pretend that 9
you are one of those. It is much better to write them down since it is not
guaranteed that you are still going to remember all the goals that you have
after a long period of time.

The science behind vision boards

The science behind vision boards

Vision boards rely on the power of visualization to rewire the brain. Your brain is an amazing organ that loves to be stimulated by learning and process new information. However, one important study found that the brain doesn't have the capacity to distinguish between a vision of the future and memory. This is where the magic of visualization can be harnessed.

When you learn something new, such as how to drive a car or bake a cake, your brain makes a new memory of that activity. The more you repeat the action, the more that memory becomes imprinted in your brain. Over time, a new "neural pathway" is formed, which transforms the memory into a learned behavior or a habit.

But remember, your brain can’t differentiate between the real physical experience of doing something and your imagination. When you visualize something, your brain will create a memory in the same way - and respond to it as if it were real!

If you consistently visualize or contemplate a future idea, it will become a reality for your brain. Your brain will form a new neural pathway and begin to create deliberate behaviors that make that vision more attainable. When you begin to use your vision board, you will notice how your brain will come up with creative and innovative ideas for achieving your vision. You will be amazed at how it will fuel your passion and drive to live your vision and keep it top of mind.

This is not an idea from a science fiction novel. It's backed by a study done at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. One group of participants was asked to do scheduled physical workouts while another was asked to do "visual workouts".

The group that did the physical gym workouts showed a 30% muscle increase. The group that worked out in their heads showed an amazing 13.5% muscle increase! Yes, this is a real study that was published in Psychology Today.

Just by visualizing that they were working out, the brains of the second group actually believed that they were doing so physically. They rewired themselves to give these participants the results of an actual workout!

Today more than ever, the power of visualization is under serious investigation. Research has already shown that visualization can help relieve aches, pains and other ailments but the potential, especially in healing chronic diseases is mind-boggling.

This is exactly how a vision board works. It allows you to harness the power of visualization by reflecting on your goals every day so that your brain works with you to achieve them.

Why Vision Boards Are Important

Why Vision Boards Are Important

Our dreams and goals are what give our lives meaning. They give us purpose and keep us passionate and motivated. Our vision of what we want to achieve in life gives us the courage and strength to keep going in difficult times and fuels our determination to succeed in the face of adversity.

Surprisingly, our digitally-centered world, while simplifying our life in many ways, makes it harder to stay focused on our goals. As we try to keep pace with our hectic lifestyle and unending commitments, we often get sidetracked and lose sight of our vision. We put our dreams on the back burner or shelve them away in our minds. The danger is that we get so caught up in the proverbial "rat race", we risk losing our vision altogether.

This is why a vision board could be just what you need. As the name implies, it's a tool that helps you keep your goals and visions alive.

This book will explain how a vision board works and why it can be an amazingly powerful tool. It will provide step-by-step instructions on how to create your personal vision board and how to use it.

Our goals and visions are unique to us. Whether your dream is to create a successful online business, own your own house or become CEO of your company, a vision board can help. If your vision is to become rich or famous, find true love or provide a good life for your family, a vision board can bring you closer to your dreams. The beauty of a vision board is that it can be customized to fit any vision or aspiration.

Creating a vision board is easy, enjoyable and costs next to nothing - but the results can actually transform your life!

What Are Your Behavioral Defects?

What Are Your Behavioral Defects?

What Are Your Behavioral Defects?

We all have faults and flaws, but have you thought about the possibility of yours lying in your behavior? Behavioral defects are more common than you might think. In this article, we’re going to explore the common signs of several behavioral defects so you can figure out how to identify them in yourself.

It’s important to keep in mind that self-diagnosing behavioral defects and behavioral disorders are two different things with a very fine line between them. Be very careful to not self-diagnose yourself. If you think something is more serious than can be fixed with simple behavioral adjustment, seek the help of a trained and licensed professional.

 

 

Oversensitivity

Oversensitivity is a very common behavioral defect. If you find that you get extremely worked up over the littlest thing, you might have a problem with oversensitivity. If every little disruption seems like the end of the world, you’re likely dealing with oversensitivity.

 

How to identify it

● Overreactions to simple problems

● Feels like you have a catastrophe regularly (daily/weekly)

● It doesn’t take much of anything to make you cry

● You’re always mad at someone

● Everyone (or the universe) is out to get you

 

What to do about it

● Try to calm yourself down

● Remind yourself of the smallness of the problem

● Think of solutions

● Keep in mind that it’s not a big deal and it’ll all be ok

● When you feel this happening, honestly question if you’re overreacting

 

Anger

We all experience anger sometimes, but it becomes pretty clear when anger is your behavioral defect. If you find yourself reaching impossible levels of anger at the slightest thing, you clearly have an anger problem. If you tend to react to violently or lash out as a response to most of your emotions, you likely have an anger problem.

 

How to identify it

● Most problems or emotions sent you spiraling into anger - it’s one of the only ways you know to express emotions

● Everything makes you angry

● You respond to things going wrong by lashing out violently or destroying things

What to do about it

● Keep yourself calm

● Try new calming hobbies and activities like crocheting, coloring, or yoga

● Seek professional help - anger management, therapy, etc.

 

 

Too Distant

Sometimes a person’s behavioral defect will be their lack of emotional response, rather than an exaggerated emotional response. If you find yourself distancing yourself from emotions, running away from problems rather than dealing with them, or refusing to get close to anyone, your behavioral defect might be keeping yourself distant.

 

How to identify it

● You refuse to experience emotions

● You run away from problems and/or emotional situations

● You keep yourself from getting close to others

● You don’t allow yourself to feel or experience feelings

 

What to do about it

● Push yourself to stick around and deal with problems and/or emotional situations

● Practice experiencing your emotions and identifying what you’re feeling

● Open up and allow people in - remember, it’s okay to be vulnerable.

 

Are you worried you may have a behavioral defect? The ones we’ve listed above are the three most common, but there are many others you may be dealing with. If you’re concerned about these defects or a potential behavioral disorder, we highly recommend seeing your doctor or making an appointment with a therapist or counselor.

We can’t warn you off self-diagnosing psychological conditions enough. When you read the descriptions of these conditions, your brain jumps to the most generic of symptoms that most everyone could say they experience and gets convinced you have whatever it is. You need a diagnosis from a professional to be sure and get the right treatment that will actually be effective.

Personal Development 101

Personal Development 101

Personal Development 101

Personal development is an essential part of life. It’s how we get from point A to point B; it’s the journey that makes us who we are. But how do you work on your personal development and hasten and improve it?

In this article, we’ll explore the topic of personal development: how you can speed up the process, improve your personal development, and make yourself a better person.

 

Let go of your ideals

One of the biggest things that tends to hold people back on their personal development journey is getting hung up on ideals. They strive to achieve this image of perfection that they have in their head: the perfect partner, the perfect job, the perfect house, the perfect family, the perfect them, the perfect clothes - you get the idea.

The problem with this is that nothing is perfect and nothing will ever fit your ideals to a tee. You have to be willing to go with the flow and make compromises. You can’t just dump everything that doesn’t meet your perfect ideals; nothing in life is perfect.

This realization is one of the first and most important steps toward positive personal development.

It’s not always going to be positive

 

The journey to personal development is full of ups and downs, trial and error, devastation and celebration. You aren’t going to win every time. You’re not always going to be proud of yourself. There are going to be times when you’re upset with the decisions you made or find out that you’ve been wrong.

 

It’s not always going to be negative either. You’ll achieve accomplishments worthy of celebration and praise. You’ll be proud of yourself and who you’ve become. The journey to personal development is filled with both positives and negatives, that’s what makes it so interesting and challenging.

 

It’s all about the journey; you’ll see the destination when you get there

 

You have to focus on the journey that lies before you, not the destination you want. The journey to personal development is full of crazy twists and turns and will take you to new places you never dreamed possible. You can’t possibly know the destination (the person you will become) before you’ve gotten there.

Enjoy the journey - take it all in and remember every part of the journey. You can worry about the destination when you get there. Let yourself become who you’re going to become. The journey to personal development is a way of life; it’s never finished. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Don’t be afraid of change

Personal development and growth are all about change. Along the journey, you’ll have to adjust to new ideas and behaviors, challenge yourself to step outside your comfort zone and learn new things.

As you adapt and adjust, you’ll find yourself growing and becoming a better person. You have to welcome change and be excited about it. These changes, even the ones that seem negative, will help you to become a better person.

 

Growing and developing is an essential part of life. Your personal development will take you to the best version of you possible. It’s important to remember, though, that it’s not about the destination, it’s all about the journey. It’ll be filled with ups and downs, positives and negatives. The important thing is that you stick to it and stay focused on personal development.

 

We hope this article has inspired you take your personal development seriously and work to improve yourself through your journey. Remember: it’s all about the journey; you’ll enjoy the destination when you get there. We wish you luck and strength as you undertake this challenge.

Key Steps To A Personal Development Plan

Key Steps To A Personal Development Plan

Key Steps To A Personal Development Plan

 

Do you want to encourage more personal development in your life? Have you thought about constructing a personal development plan?

 

A personal development plan, like any other sort of self-improvement plan, is a plan you put into place to encourage and guide you through your personal development. This plan will help you track your progress and ensure you’re achieving all the goals you set out to achieve.

In this article, we’ll provide you with the key steps necessary to construct a personal development plan.

 

Set goals

You can’t construct any sort of self-improvement plan without setting goals. The goals for your personal development plan should be related to personal growth. Whenever you set goals for yourself, you have to be sure that they are achievable and that you give yourself a deadline. This will ensure you actually achieve them in a timely manner.

 

Examples of goals

● Developing and sticking to a positive sleep routine for a month

● Wake up at 6 am and workout every day

● Learn about balanced nutrition and plan meals

 

Track your progress

Tracking your progress is essential to see what’s working and what’s not, knowing where you stand in your personal development, and keeping yourself motivated. Rewarding yourself for achieving your goals can be excellent motivation to keep you working towards the next one. It can also help to keep you on the right track along your path to self-improvement.

 

Be open to change

If you’re going to construct a personal development plan and actually take it on, you’ll have to be open to change. Sometimes you won’t make as much progress as you had hoped you would and other times you’ll make way more; you have to be flexible and willing to go with the flow. You have to change your plans to make it work for you as you go.

Cut yourself some slack

You’re human; you’re going to mess up and fall off the path every now and again. You have to cut yourself some slack and be willing to forgive yourself for your shortcomings. Learn from the mistakes, forgive yourself, let it go, and move forward. The longer you get hung up on it, the more time you waste that could be spent making you a better person and working on your personal development.

 

Keep a journal

Journaling can help you more closely track your progress as you work your way along this journey, and identify any problems in your behavior, actions, or decisions. Journaling can make it easier for you to recount what you do throughout the day so you can better assess your behavior to make adjustments when necessary.

You can read back over your journal later to more accurately analyze what went on during a particular time, refresh your mind of decisions you made, and remember what mistakes you’ve made and the lessons you’ve learned from them. It can help you keep tabs on your progress as you go.

 

If you want to work on your personal development, the best thing to do is make a plan. If you stick to your plan and follow our few key steps, you’ll be set up for success. The road to personal development is a long and arduous one, but the benefits are far more than worth it. Stay the course and reap your many benefits.

We hope this article has inspired you to develop your very own personal development plan and work to improve yourself. The harder you work to improve yourself the better the results will be. We hope you stick it out and see it through to the end.

Can You Really Change Yourself?

Can You Really Change Yourself?

Can You Really Change Yourself?

There are lots of theories out there about people’s ability to change themselves. Some think it’s entirely impossible, others think it can be possible in small increments, and others think it’s possible with hard work.

In this article, we’ll discuss whether or not you can really change yourself. We’ll also include some helpful tips to better yourself.

 

Can you change yourself?

The short answer to this question is yes, you can change yourself. It takes hard work, diligent effort, focus, dedication, and strength to change yourself, but it is possible. The thing is, it’s far from easy. Changing yourself takes a lot of diligent, focused effort. It isn’t something you can just try half-baked.

The road to changing yourself will be long and arduous. The main thing to keep in mind is to not give up and stay true to the path. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you slip from the course, just be sure you get back on the right path.

How do you change yourself?

Changing yourself, as we said, isn’t easy. If you decide to try to change yourself, you have to make the commitment and stick to it. You have to hold yourself accountable and make a diligent effort. You can’t give up halfway through and you can’t expect to make any headway if you’re half-assing it.

The following exercises and practices can help you implement change that sticks around in your life.

 

Develop new habits

The first way you can work to change yourself is by working to develop new habits. Make the changes you want to make your new habits. Practice them every day, multiple times a day. Before you know it, they’ll be second-nature to you.

 

Example

If you want to change the fact that you’re lazy, make a habit of doing one positive bit of work a day. This could be something for your job or for cleaning your house; something productive and positive are the only requirements.

Practice identifying the bad behaviors or faults

The first step to fixing the bad behaviors or learning to deal with your faults is identifying what those are. Spend some time meditating each day, analyzing all of the experiences and interactions you’ve had. Try to find the problem areas and address them reasonably; don’t beat yourself up, that’s helping no one.

 

Be open to criticism

Part of how you change yourself is by listening to critiques from loved ones. You have to get these from people who truly love you that you trust want only the best for you. Take their criticisms and really think about and review them: could you stand to improve in that area? What might help you do that?

 

Challenge yourself

Each day, give yourself a positive new challenge to help you reach your goal of affecting your desired change. No one can make you change but you and you have to be responsible for motivating yourself, pushing and challenging yourself in order to get there.

 

Example

Let’s say the behavior you’re trying to change is erring on the side of being a hermit. You could challenge yourself to go to a new public place each day or talk to a new person each day.

You can truly change yourself, but it won’t be easy. It takes diligent effort, dedication, and a lot of time and hard work to actually affect change in your life. Sometimes, it may even be emotionally painful and taxing, but you have to just push to see it through to the end. You have to be your own motivation, judge, and counselor. You have to hold yourself accountable, stick with it, and see it through to the end, come hell or high water.
