Setting goals is the most important thing you can do in your life. Without goal’s you are going to have no direction, no ambition to be successful, no drive to stay in school, and trouble finding a career that will provide for you. Without these three things, achieving your goals is going to be one of the toughest tasks in the years to come.
When setting direction to success you must make good choices on the path you are going to choose. The wrong path will put you somewhere that is going to take you off track from your goals. This path can lead to partying too much, getting lazy, and not going back to school. Not doing schoolwork is getting lazy. You must stay on top of schoolwork and not fall behind.
If you start to fall behind in schoolwork, it is very hard to find yourself catching up again. Choosing the right path will keep you caught up in work and your mind occupied so you don’t fall behind. Having ambition to be successful is key in getting what you want in life. Ambitions of getting a great job, a family, and any other thing that will make your life more enjoyable is all do to setting goals. Setting goals of getting paid a certain amount of money by the age of 40 is a goal that will make you work hard, and do well in the business place.
Having a family and a nice house is also a goal that will make you do well in the business place, to be able to provide for your family. Also, having those extra things that make your life more enjoyable is a reachable goal by connecting everything together. Those things that make life more enjoyable like vacations, nice cars, boats, and other toys can be fun and achieved by hard work and patience. The drive to stay in school is another big part of setting goals. Without the drive to stay in school, you lose site of those nice things that can be achieved with hard work.
Drive also motivates you to do the things that you don’t want to do, but have to do them. Things like writing papers, studying for exams, and going to school during the summer. The drive to achieve your goals will help you through these tough times. Through the tough times, think about all of those goals you are trying to achieve, and how nice it is going to be when you reach them. Finding a career that will provide for you can be very difficult if you do not follow the path to reach your goals.
This is another reason to stay on track and work hard in school. Without your education, going into the work force and finding a good job that will provide for you and your family can be very hard. Most jobs require school degrees and sometimes certifications that require many hours of work. Without the degrees and the certifications, advancement in a job is sometimes impossible. Without advancement in a career, it is very hard to reach your goals of making that big salary, and having all of the enjoyable things in life.
My first year of college I didn’t realize the importance of setting goals. After my first year in college, having a good job, and seeing other people that did not make such good choices, I have begun to understand staying in school is the right choice. The right choice also is the importance of setting goals and trying your hardest to achieve them.
