I challenge you to create Goals

So what is a goal? A goal is defined as a “desired result a person or a system envisions, plans and commits to achieve”.  You may read that and think; “that’s goalgreat but what does that have to do with me?” Here’s something I’ve learned, as individuals we must constantly be growing and improving in order to feel successful and fulfilled. The reason goals are necessary is because they create a sense of achievement, and achievement leads to happiness. This is the reason most of us have fond memories of school, sure making friends and partying was great, but school is multiple sets of goals. Getting to class after a night out can be a goal, studying when you know your friends are going out, getting that grade you wanted etc. The institution of school is based of goals and achieving them which makes us feel great. If you are just handed something you might be happy but to work hard and achieve something you really want then get it, there is no feeling like it.

When I was learning about the importance of achievement in one of psychology classes I was reading my textbook on the greyhound bus on my way to Toronto and as I looked up entering the city I saw a billboard for Mercedes Benz which said; “What’s life without goals?” How brilliant! It all sums it up perfectly; set your goal, work hard and when you finally attain it and that new Mercedes is yours, how great will you feel!

Take the time and write down one thing you want to achieve. One major desire that you would like to obtain, What is it? Is it to exercise? Is it to floss every night? Is it in your career? Relationship? Home renovation? Vacation? The key to achieving a goal is to do it the SMART way (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely)

A good way to incorporate goals into your everyday life is to never start your day until it’s finished. Write down what you want to get done that day, that way you can start checking things off and you will feel motivated and happy.

I told myself two years ago that I wanted to move to Vancouver one day. I put that goal down on paper and never forgot about it. I’ve been here for 4 months now and whether it works out for me long term or not to me this has been a goal I achieved, and so I view that as a success. You can start out small but goals and achievements and growth is the real secret to a happy life.
