How Having Goals in Life Keeps you Focused, Productive, Happy and Can Make you Achieve your Dreams

"Having goals that we are passionate about gives us something to look forward to each and every morning when we wake up. Not having goals is an excellent recipe for average living."

If someone questioned you in the middle of your day, out of nothing, and asked you: What is the biggest thing you want to accomplish in life? What will be the first thing that comes to your mind? That's your primary life goal.

We sometimes hesitate when it comes to our living. We always live in a cycle of pain, comfort, happiness, and sadness. We face challenges and trials every day to achieve everything we want in the future. The reason why we choose to keep holding on is because of our goals. Our goals are our guide as we walk through our journey.

Fact: Did you know that 80% of people never set goals for themselves, and out of the 20% who do, 70% fail to achieve their goals?

What is a Goal?

Goals, whether it is long term or short term, is the reflection of a person's ambition, an aim, or the desired result. In short, goals are something to achieve as time goes by. Like a pathway, goals give direction in our lives.

Some examples of goals are: travel to South America, buy a house, become a manager, complete a marathon, build a family, etc. We have so many things in mind, but how are we going to achieve it? How are we going to make it happen? We cannot just wait for it to come without doing anything. We must do something. We must work for it, be persistent, and never stop trying even if there are hurdles along the way.

Goals give us a lot of reasons to be motivated in life. Without it, we are like a ship without direction. Goals are like a map that leads us to success. It is important for us to have these kinds of accomplishments to feel accomplished in life.

"Focus on your goals, not your fear. Focus like a laser beam on your goals." ― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

Significance of Goals

Goals lead us towards success, are ways to better ourselves, and enhance our life. People say it is better to have goals, whether an important goal or a simple goal than having none at all because goals give sense to our life.

Aspirations give you a clear understanding of what is important to you. It sets us to think about what's more important. If you truly reflect and think about your goals, you will focus through it until you reach within your hold.

How Goals Make Us Focused?

Focusing on our dreams means we are committed to what we want to be. To be focused is a must. How can we achieve our goals if we are not focused? How far can we go if we aren't serious about what we are doing? If we stay focused on our goals, it will become easier to distinguish what we want to be or where we want to go in the near future.

Being focused on our goals is always applied in any aspect of life. Focusing on our goals and dreams in life is very relevant for us to get what we want or what we always think of. We should always be aware of every step we do so that we will not lose track of our goals.

For example, as a student, to finish your studies, you should remain focused and be sincere to your responsibility to avoid distractions that can affect your dream, which is to complete your education.

As an employee, you should always keep in mind your duties and responsibilities for you to be productive. Never take advantage of everything. Be kind and always keep in mind that you have lots of goals, like getting promoted or long-term employment.

As a breadwinner of the family, you should be dedicated, not just to your duties but also to your present and future goals. You should put your family first before anything. Remember that one of your goals is to give your family a comfortable life.

Stay focused, determined, and have deep faith as well. Every goal happens when you keep holding on to it.

How Goals Make Us Productive?

When we think of what we want to be or when we dream of having a better life, isn't it a goal? Yes, we are thinking of having ambitions in life, but is it enough? Is it the best way to make it real?

Being productive is important; dreaming is not enough; we should work hard for it. Goals aren't instant. Goals don't come in just one snap. We should always keep in mind that goals are meant to be achieved when you exert effort on it.

Productivity is about achieving or producing a certain amount or result. The more we work on our goals, the more we become productive. Goals are not something you can get easily. You should stand up, work for it, and be determined. Our goals are the main reason why we wake up in the morning and do our day-to-day stuff.

How Can Goals Make Us Happy?

"In between goals is a thing called life, that has to be lived and enjoyed." – Sid Caeser

How would you feel if you have attained something you've been dreaming of? What will be your reaction if all of your hard work paid off? The answer is you will be ecstatic.

When we feel that our dreams are happening, isn't it exciting? It simply means that we are one step closer to our desired life. Every little thing we accomplish brings great joy to us.

Every milestone we attained makes us happy. It means that we have succeeded or almost close to our aspirations in life. Regardless of the goal we are working on, no matter how far or close we are from our goals can lead to positive or sometimes negative emotions. Besides, setting achievable goals and pursuing them will produce a sense of comfort, pride, and happiness.

How Goals Make You Achieve your Dreams?

"Dream don't work unless you do." Unknown

Everyone has dreams, but only limited people have the power to make it a reality. Achieving our dreams is the best part of our lives. It is the combination of our hard work, determination, loyalty, and faith.

Dreams simply mean, ambitions, on the other hand, goals are something you want to happen in your life. There is a big difference between these two words. But dreams become a reality if you have a goal in achieving it.

With goals in life, we are always motivated to achieve our dreams within our capabilities. It helps us to be more decisive towards our daily living. Whatever our goals and dreams are, we should not give up no matter what happens, but the most important is to believe in yourself that you can overcome everything just to achieve what you want in life.

Goals should be well-organised and achieved in a timely manner. Some people list their goals in life or sometimes jot it down for them to be reminded of their aspirations. Unless we stay focus on our goals, it is easy to lose momentum in our busy life. You need the right tools and environment to make it happen.

Some of the reasons why people fail at achieving their goals are: 

  • Fear of success or failure
  • Lack of know-how, motivation, focus, and commitment 
  • Doubting one's capability
  • Failing to plan
  • Busy living someone else's life
  • Not having the right tools

Every day is one step closer to accomplishing your dreams in life through your goals.
