Five Reasons To Go After Your Goals 3

“Just keep moving forward and don’t give a sh#$ about what anybody thinks. Do what you have to do for you.”
Johnny Depp

The passing of Labor days means the summer is over and it’s time to get down to work. With only 119 days left between now and the end of the year, what do you want to accomplish?

Do you want to find a new job? Maybe you just want to find a job. Do you want a promotion, a raise? At home are you looking for a deeper relationship with your significant other? Whatever your goal, use today as a launching point.

Here are five things to keep in mind when pursing your goal:

  1. You must write it down. If you can’t see it, feel it and read it out loud, you’ll have a hard time achieving it.
  2. You must make it very specific. The more detail you can give your goal, the more attainable it will be.
  3. You must make it realistic. Most of us would like to earn a million dollars a year and having that as a goal would be exciting. But is it realistic for where you are right now?
  4. You must believe in your goal. Johnny Depp’s quote reminds us to do what we believe is right, not what others think is best for us.
  5. You must take action towards your goal. Napoleon Hill said a goal without action is just a dream.  You must take steps every single day towards your goal.

As sad as it maybe to see summer end, it opens new doors for us. Decide what your major focus, your goal will be for the fall and go after it with everything you’ve got. You’ll be surprised where you will be at year’s end.
