Desire or Goal?

We all have a lot of desires in our lives – big or small. But what not everyone has are concrete goals. Distinguishing a desire from a goal is the first important step towards the home straight. Because dreaming of something, wishing for it, is very passive while formulating a goal is active. So you should turn your important wishes into goals because then you can tackle them and contribute to their fulfillment. Goals differ from desires in that they can be achieved through your energy and planning, and you don't wait for them to come true and be gifted to you.

Concrete plans and intermediate goals

Once you have set a goal for yourself, it's time to start planning. Simply saying, "I want to achieve this someday" does absolutely nothing. You need a good plan that leads to your goal in the short or long term. It's best to break it down into time periods, such as months, 3-month increments, or years, depending on how big your goal is. Intermediate goals are also important for your nerves, especially if your main goal is far away. In order to stay on the ball and motivate yourself, you should recognize intermediate goals and celebrate properly! Write them down as a fixed goal in your planning and be happy when you have achieved them because then you are a big step closer to your main goal.

accept help

You have determined people in your life who would like to support you in achieving your goals. Even if it is your personal goal, you can and should involve other people. Nobody is alone in the world and you only waste your important energy unnecessarily if you want to do everything 100% yourself. There are simply people who are better at certain parts of your plan than you are, and if you can enlist their help, don't insist on going it alone. If you donate parts, you may increase their quality and free yourself to focus on parts that you are good at. In the end, it's still your great achievement, even if you had helping hands along the way. You were just smart and used all the resources.

Always stay flexible

You have learned many things and processes in a certain way and therefore always act in the same way. This may often work well, but sometimes you block creative solutions. Try to be relaxed and open-minded about your goal. Listen to other people's suggestions for solutions, try out new ideas and always remain as flexible as possible. You can often reach a goal much better and faster via an unconventional route than via predetermined routes. Therefore, take time from time to time to reflect on your approach and to make innovative improvements to your planning if you notice that you have gotten stuck.

focus and action

The two most important characteristics for a successful path to your goal are concentration and action. You must be absolutely focused on your goal whenever you plan or take action. Don't get distracted by leisure activities, the news, or the nice weather. If you find that your concentration is failing you, give yourself a break and try again later before you get unsatisfactory or incorrect results with only half concentration. If you have concentration on your side, then the only thing missing is the action: YOU have to tackle it, get started, and become active. Always planning and speculating won't get you very far.

visualize goals

Here we are again with the distinction between desires and goals. Wishes can be dreamed up, they don't even have to be realistic. Things are different when it comes to goals: you should put them together in every detail and as precisely as possible. Make sure they are actionable and fit you. If you are sure that you have thought of everything, then make your vision visible and tangible for you. This can be a collage, a picture, or a table with all the details. The main thing is that you can always get your goal out and take it into your own hands. Engaging in visualization helps your brain explore all possible avenues and get creative. You practically release all your energy for this goal and always come up with new ideas and solutions.

The route is the goal

With your plan, never forget that it is just part of your life. No matter how important your goal is to you, it is still only a part of your whole life and does not affect every important living space. You have family, friends, and interests, not all of which are related or dependent on your goal. And even if your plan fails and you don't reach your goal, you still have a great life! Maintain this and cultivate it, because you do not only begin to live when you have reached your goal. Have fun along the way, keep your focus on other goals and even aimless activities. In this way, you can be sure that you have reached your goal in the end, but are all alone. You are more than just this one goal! With this attitude, you never give 100% to achieving a goal.
