Creating and Achieving your Goals

Today's blog post is about setting and achieving obtainable goals. I want to personally dedicate this post to my my lovely younger sister Cherae. I just want her to know she is a amazing person and there is no doubt in my mind that she will flourish into a very successful women. 

Step 1. Set goals and make them visible.
This is step is really important in achieving life long goals. A goal can be anything from completing college with great grades, to completing college and going off to law school. A person can set their goals to anything they want. Instead of just going to college you further your goal by working toward completing college, going to law school and opening your own law firm. A goal is anything you wish to achieve in life. You are the only person who can make, change and/or execute what ever it is you want to do do with your life.
Making your goals visible is crucial to success; You have to see it to believe it. Some of the ways to make your goals visible is keeping a personal journal. You do this by writing down your progress, and plans of action. Creating a vision board is another visible way to keep goals in mind as well as placing stick notes around your house reminding  yourself that you have set goals and you will achieving term.

 Step 2. Break your goals down into to categories, Short Term and Long Term.
Your short term goals are your stepping stones in achieving your long term goals. By breaking your long term goals down into smaller steps they become more achievable.


Step 3. Be realistic
Set goals you know you are able to achieve. There is nothing in this world we are not able to achieve especially if we put our mind to it. Some things are a bit far fetch and you don't want to set yourself up for failure, we always want to strive for success.
