Nothing worthwhile has ever been achieved by anyone without making a layout of the action to be carried on till accomplishment. And no accomplishment has ever been possible without the combination of factors adding to the process of fruition. Man by nature is a creature that wants to fulfil his aspiration in order to prove his worth in the society to which he belongs. Nobody is exception to this fact, though aspirations may vary from person to person. For example, a student will always think in terms of performing well in the examination he takes. But his performing well in the examination cannot be treated independently of other factors that determine the final outcome. A student must cooperate with the institution where he reads; he must pay attention to the teachers words; he must follow the discipline which the institution has decided. In other words, if you want to achieve your goals, always help others achieve their goals.
You must stick to the discipline a work calls for. If you are a student, you must be aware that without serious self-study, you cannot achieve desired success. You must read your study material seriously and try to clear every doubt which impedes your clear understanding of the topic or subject you ought to master. Your studies should never interfere with your routine with regard to day-to-day affairs like waking up early, brushing your teeth properly, taking a bath, having meals at regular intervals and having proper sleep. If you upset your routine, it will meddle with the quality of your studies and you cannot retain anything properly.
If you set your goals high and decide not to stop till you reach there, you will certainly emerge victorious. The great thinker, Ralph Waldo Emerson has aptly said, Hitch your wagon to a star. If you think big, you can make it big in any field of human activity. Thinking big fills you with vigour and determination. You develop an unprecedented self-confidence due to the dimension of your goal. But your goal must be accompanied by a well-laid-out plan. If you do not plan the action, your dream will fall flat. A goal without a plan ends up as a wish. A goal is a task to which you commit yourself wholeheartedly. It is never an easy task. In William Shakespeare’s words “Ambition should be made of sterner stuff“. Naturally, if you decide to attain some goal, you will never let your attention get diverted. You will try your best to take every step in the direction of the fulfilment of your goal. You only need to be sincere and resolute. Once you train yourself with that intent, every step you take will take you closer to your goal.
In fact, goals are nothing more than tools to focus all your energy in the right direction, i.e. positive direction. In other words, your goals keep you from moving towards negativity. That is why people with goals always succeed in the end. They know where they are going. Not that success comes to them all of a sudden. Many of them have to face initial failures. But their failures are never impediments, but act as lessons. They learn from their mistakes and do not commit the same mistakes again. If you are determined, you will reach high. Stars lie hidden in your soul. If you dream intensely, you move towards your goal. Every dream precedes a goal. Remember goals are like magnets and they attract the things that make dreams come true.
Wishing that your dreams come true,
