One of the amazing things we have been given as human beings is the unquenchable desire to have dreams of a better life and to be able to establish and set goals to achieve those dreams.
We can look into the depths of our hearts and dream of a better future for ourselves and our families. We can dream of better financial, emotional, spiritual or physical health. We are also endowed with the ability not only to dream, but to pursue those dreams – not just to pursue them, but also to have the ability to understand the plan and strategies to achieve those dreams. It’s powerful!
What are your dreams and goals? This is not what you already have or have done, but what you want. Have you ever sat down and thought about your health values and decided what you really wanted? Have you ever given yourself time to truly meditate, listen quietly in your heart, and see what dreams live within you? Your dreams are there. Everyone has them. They may live straight up, or they may be buried in the depths of the age of others telling you they are fools, but they are.
You have to ask difficult questions to enjoy your dreams, and then you have to turn that happiness into a strategic act of pursuing everything you want. Here are some tips to help you unleash the power of your inner dreams:
Listen to them.
How do we know what our dreams are? This is an exciting process and is closely related to the art of listening. This does not listen to others; it listens to you. When we listen to others, we hear their plans and dreams, and, sometimes, others will try to put their plans and dreams to us. If we listen to others, we will not be fulfilled. We will pursue only unattainable dreams that are not deeply rooted within us.
Instead, we should listen to our hearts to hear dreams that are born of our different desires and desires. Just as when you are quiet enough to feel your heart beating inside your chest, your dreams have their own rhythm. The only thing you have to do is make it quiet enough to hear the rhythm.
Take time to be quiet.
Giving yourself time of peace is something we are not doing enough in this busy world. We chase, chase, chase and always listen to the sound around us. We should not be deceived by a busy schedule. Instead, we should keep asking ourselves the question, “What am I doing right now?” In other words, do the activities you are participating in lead you to your goals? If not, then work from the bottom of the list eliminating issues that aren’t worth the fight.
The human heart was designed to have moments of silent reflection, allowing us to look deeper. It is then that we do this when our hearts are free to rise and fly with the wings of our dreams. Schedule a quiet “dream time” this week. No other people. No cell phone. No computer. Just you, the pad, the pen and your thoughts.
Think about what makes you truly happy. When you are silent, think about those things that move your blood. What would you like to do, enjoy, or make a living? What would you like to achieve? What would you try if you were guaranteed success? What are the great thoughts that move your heart to a state of happiness and happiness? If you answer these questions, you will feel scared because you are in the “dream zone.” Only then can we reach the point where we can truly see and begin to feel what our dreams are.
Make a list and prioritize.
Write down all your dreams as you have them. Don’t think that you are crazy or stupid – remember, you are dreaming! Let your thoughts and pen come out as you take a careful record.
Now look at your list and put those dreams first. What is most important? Which is the best? Which would you rather do? Put it in order and you will try to find it. Remember, we are always moving forward in action, not just dreaming.
Why am I asking you to participate in this work? Because life is too short to follow your dreams. At the end of your life, all you can do is look back. You can show it with joy or with regret. And we all know that happiness from discipline weighs ounces while remorse weighs tons.
Those who dream, set goals and act accordingly, are those who live happy and peaceful lives as they approach the end of their lives. They will be well-off and have a sense of pride and accomplishment, not only for themselves but also for their families. That feeling is nothing!
Remember: These are dreams and goals that are born of your heart and mind, goals that are different from you, and that come from what you were created to be and given to be. Your special goals are what you want to achieve because they will make your life happier and bring satisfaction to you and your family.
The acronym SMART is one of the most important aspects of goal setting because we want to be smart when setting goals. We want to determine wisely what our goals will be in order to achieve them. We want to set goals that our hearts can achieve, that our mind believes and that our bodies will accomplish. Let’s take a closer look at each of the SMART goals:
Policies are not a place for instability. They are not vague locations. Complex goals produce confusing results. Imperfect intentions produce an imperfect future. When we talk in detail, we use the power of our dreams and organize our energy into actions that empower us to achieve our goals. Then we know exactly what we need – no question.
As we set priorities and use our time, we set realistic goals for ourselves, to achieve the desired results. No surprise or guessing. The future is locked in our minds, and we see it – especially – and that is powerful! Never underestimate how important it is to have specific, specific goals. They act like dragons that pull you to them. The SMART policy is clear.
It is measured
Always set realistic goals— “particularly measurable” to determine the goal of clarity, and. Our goal should be to know where we are progressing and to what extent. Whether it is hours, pounds, dollars or any other scale, we should be able to clearly see how we measure as we go through life using our goals. Imagine if you did not measure up to your goals. You would not know where you were going or where you were going. SMART policy is measurable.
One of the most dangerous things most people do – and do with good intentions – is to set unreachable goals for themselves. While it is important to have big goals that cause your heart to thrive with happiness, it is also important to make sure that you are achievable.
An achievable goal is what is visible and happening in less time than you have to work with. “Accessibility” does not mean easy. Our goals must be set so that they do not reach us, so that they can challenge us to grow as we move forward to achieve them. SMART goal can be achieved.
The root word of facts is real. The goal should be something that we can make “real” or “real” in our lives. There are some false goals. You need to be able to say, even if it is the most important goal, that it is real – that you can do it. You may have to say that it will take X, Y and Z to do it, but if that happens, then it can be done.
This is not to say that it should not be a major goal, but that the goal should be realistic. This, to a large extent, depends on the individual. For one person, the goal may be real, but for another, it may not be achievable. Be very honest with yourself as you do your planning and evaluation. It would be good to have a friend who will help you, as long as that friend is naturally hopeful and not hopeless. This can be very helpful in helping you to know the real thing.
Knowing that you may be able to use a little help with weighty and realistic, here is an example: Suppose you are overweight and need to lose 150 pounds [150 kg] to reach your ideal weight. Can that goal be achieved? Yes, if at all. For example, it is not true to think that you can do it in five months. Eighteen to 24 months can be real (hard work). Therefore, a 150-pound reduction in two years is available and possible, while losing 150 pounds in five months is undetectable and realistic. The SMART policy is realistic.
It is sensitive to time
One of the strongest features of the main purpose is that it has an end, a time when you shoot to achieve it. You start working because you know there is an end, and as time goes on, you work because you don’t want to go back. As the deadline approaches, you are working hard because you want to meet that deadline. It is a good idea to break the big goal into different parts of the measurement and timing. Set small goals and reach them on time. The SMART goal has a timeline.
Now let’s take a look at how you can apply SMART testing to your goals and make sure they are effective.
As an agreement with you or someone else, accountability is an important key to the goal-setting process. Response puts some teeth in the process. If a goal has been set and only one person knows it, do you have the power? Most of the time it is not. At least, it is not so powerful.
When someone knows what your intentions are, they will follow up with you and hold you accountable by asking you to “give an answer” of where you are and what you are doing. It is human nature that if we know someone is going to ask us about it, we are strongly encouraged to do it – if there is no reason other than to want to look lazy and unresponsive. That’s why having an accountable partner is so important.
In a basic sense, there are two types of accountability: internal and external.
Internal accountability is basically a level of integrity that rests not only in the process of testing but also in health. It means that when you look at yourself, you are judging yourself honestly. It is where you make a commitment to do what you say you will do. If you are confused, say, “I wasted it,” but if you do well, then you can celebrate your progress. Let the inner response move you and encourage you in the great act of seeking your success.
So, first and foremost, it is our job to be accountable. We answer ourselves. We control ourselves. How do we do that? Here are a few ideas:
Write down your goals for “purpose.” You can’t go back and say, “That wasn’t really my intention.”
Be honest with yourself when you check whether you have met a goal or not. Of course, if you specify to set your SMART targets, you won’t have a roaming room here, however.
If you fall short of your goal, or if you fall short while on the road, kneel down and commit to behavior to do what is needed to build the ground so that you can achieve that goal!
Set a time frame where you will check your progress and commit to responding.
Get someone or a group of others to respond to you. When we commit ourselves to giving an account to someone for our actions and intentions, we take it to the next level.
The outer part of the response will not work without the internal element. If you are not honest with yourself, then you may not be honest with others. Asking someone to make you excuse yourself and knowing that you will not be completely honest with them will not work.
Having an external source of response is a great strength if done right. Here are a few things to keep in mind when setting up a responsible partner:
Choose someone who cares about you but who can be tough and loyal to you. They need to care about you – and you should know and feel such care – because you run the risk of being held accountable for them. They have to be tough and honest, however, because you don’t want to embarrass them by telling you to get into the ball when you slide, go back or not do the job. The expression “hard love” may fit right here. In fact, they love us enough to be honest with us about our progress.
Tell them exactly what your goals are.
Commit yourself to being honest with them.
Give them permission to say words of encouragement, as well as words of challenge when the situation calls for it.
Agree on a time when you will allow them to monitor your progress and make you responsible.
Follow their names when they challenge you or call you to action.
Accountability can be a very big thing. There is an old saying that one can flee a thousand, but two can put 10,000 to flee. When we have a commitment, we bring others into our team that will make us stronger, that will make us more uplifting and that will make our lives richer because of their involvement.
Take a moment and really look at who will hold you accountable for achieving your goals. Now, go back to the words above and start making this process in your life. You will be overjoyed.
Setting Goals Challenges You
Let your goals challenge you to be a different person of incredible size, not in the eyes of someone else, but in your own eyes.
It doesn’t matter if someone thinks I’m short or tall, but it’s important when I’m standing with my eyes open – because I know my commands, I know what I’m doing, I know what I’m doing or not. I know I pay a price and I deserve to be applauded and I deserve a prize. That’s what’s exciting. That is why this goal setting is so important. It challenges you to grow. It challenges you to be above yourself, to move on to the next level. And that is the key.
