Setting Your Personal Development Goals With A Positive Attitude

Setting goals will help you achieve what you want in life. Simply flying by the seat of your pants won't get you to where you want to go. You need to have a definite plan.

It is also helpful to make a timeline in which you want to achieve your plan.

Set your goal, then divide it into smaller, more attainable goals. This makes it possible to see where you are in the progress of your plan.

When you can see that you are making progress, this helps to keep you motivated to complete your goal.

Whether you use a chart or day planner, divide your goals into daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly steps. Then go to work on it.

Each time you complete a part of your goal you feel a sense of accomplishment while moving a little closer to what you want.

You need to have a positive attitude in order to succeed at your plan. If you are having difficulty getting things done, look at what could be the cause. Are you sabotaging yourself?

If you feel unsure of yourself and your ability to reach your goal, you may be dragging your feet about working on your steps. Just remember, it is better to fail at something than never to try at all.

If you know what you want, but you are afraid to try because you don't think you have the knowledge or training for it, then take courses and trainings that will help you.

Look for ways to overcome anything standing in the way of what you want. Setting goals is a necessary step to get you on track to where you want to be.


“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more,
do more and become more, you are a leader.”

John Quincy Adams

You are a life Saver!!

I recently discovered this site and I can tell you that my life has not been the same. I now come here EVERYDAY and spend at least 1 hour.

I used to spend that time browsing online fashion and beauty magazine which just means that I spend more. Now I have replaced that habit with coming here.

In future I will think about contributing articles as well. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!! and God bless"
