Have you ever read any self-improvement books, you get excited with the ideas, and you set exciting goals, but in the end you still are not achieve what you have set? I believe that most people will have this trouble. They have set their goals, but then they still procrastinate and do nothing about their goals.
The first thing you need to understand is this, what actually drives you? If you don’t know what motivates you, then how in the world are you going to be driven and take action towards your goals? Many people thought that goals will drive them. This is not true, goals will not drive you. What actually driven you into action is the reason behind your goals.
So make this clear, it is the reason that drives you toward taking action, and getting closer toward your goals. Today, if you don’t have a strong reason behind your goals, you will never achieve what you have set for. You can set your goals to be a multi-millionaire, but if you don’t know why you want to be a multi-millionaire, you will never achieve this goal. This is simply because there are no reasons for you to be a multi-millionaire.
You know that you should spend 30 minutes everyday to read self-improvement books, you know that you should spend time writing articles everyday, and you know that you should make 10 cold calls everyday, but you just putting all of these tasks away. You rather choose to watch television the moment you should be doing something that will get you closer to your goals. All of these happen because you are procrastinating and the reason is that they are not the ‘must-do’ for you.
That is the why most of the people out there who set their goals, but fail to achieve them in the end. So you must understand why you need to achieve your goals. Now, if your goal is to be a multi-millionaire, you must know why you want to achieve it so badly. If you want to be the top golfer in your region, you too, must know the reason for that. If you don’t have a strong reason, you are not going to achieve your goals.
Everything you do, you do it for a reason. If there is no reason, you will not bother doing it. Why do you go to school and study? Most people do this because their parents told them to. Why do you work? Many people thought that they should work after studying, because this is life. While for some people, they work because they want to earn money for their living. Whatever the reason is, there must be a reason. So you have to find out the reason that keeps you going.
Unless you have a strong reason, you will not achieve your goals. It is the reason that motivates you; it is the reason that drives you into taking massive action. Think about it, why are you reading this article in the first place? There must be a reason that attracts you to click on this article and read it. If the reason is not strong enough, maybe you will just read it halfway, or maybe you don’t even bother about this article.
So you see, it is the reason that determines what you do in your life. Therefore, you must understand why you want something so badly before you can achieve it. The same goes for goal setting. Having a goal will not motivate you; a goal is just helping you to stay focused in direction where you are heading.
Hence, make sure you know why you want to achieve your goals so badly. If you don’t spend some time to find out the answer right after reading this article.
