Why are setting goals very important to your success?
In the past, While I was searching the internet for knowledge about how to become successful. I often came across this, people saying that you have to set goals. But I never knew that setting goals might actually be one of THE most important things to do before you start your own business.
I will try to explain it, but it is very difficult to do so. Why? Because it is more like a feeling, a passion, that makes you motivated. If you imagine your goal, reaching your goal and being successful, and this makes you excited, then you know you are setting the right goals. But there is more to it.
I believe that everyone has the ability to do great things. But there are some key aspects that you need to do in order to become successful. You can’t just want or wish to become successful, you have to take action. But you never really take action if you dont really want to reach you goals
In order to take action, we need to be motivated to do so. Motivation plays a key role here. But how to get motivated? Do I have to be more disciplined? Do I need more will power? Do I have to create better habits? All legit questions.
And while all of these things are important, in my opinion it all originated from one desire? The desire to reach your goal.
If you really want to reach your goal, you WILL be motivated, you WILL have more willpower and you WILL be more disciplined. But without a good goal, and without focusing on your goal, it will be very hard to do so.
Setting the right goals.
Now that you know that setting goals are important, let us talk about how to set the right goals. When I grew up, nobody asked me what my life goals were, most people just asked me, “what do you want to study and what work do you want to do later?”

I never really had big goals. The results were that I often was bored, I wasn’t determined, all I wanted to do was play video games. (Actually, this is related, as my goals was to become the best at playing these games, which is similar to the topic here.)
But when reality struck, and I had to work and give up a lot of my freedom, life changed. I ended up very poor with not much spare time. Every month was a struggle and I wasn’t able to save any money. These sudden hard conditions forced me to learn to find a way out.
It wasn’t until recently after reading the book: Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker. That I realized how important setting goals are. And that you have to set the right goals. And one most important factors to choose the right goal is to think big.
If you want to succeed in life you have to set bigger goals. That’s why I want you from now on, if you set a goal, for example: next year you want to make 100K, double your goal or even 3x it. I don’t care, but I want you to think bigger from now on.
If you aim for the moon, you might hit a star.
Meaning, if you set big and ambitious goals, you might achieve more than you think, even if you do not right away reach your main goals.
I hope this article helped you to think a little deeper about how important goals are and about thinking bigger.
