Don’t Give Up! Overcoming Obstacles and Making Your Dreams a Reality

Waking up and being excited about the day is one of the best feelings that one can have, especially when it happens on a regular basis. This indicates that whatever we are doing, it is in alignment with who we really are. It means that we are on the right path towards achieving our goals.

Unfortunately though, seeing highly motivated people is a rare occurrence. The majority of us like to play it safe. This means having stability in life and staying within the comfort zone. This also means doing what everyone else is doing and what we have been taught to do by the older generations. “Get a good education.

5 Powerful Goal Setting Tools to Spark Your Achievements

The other day I was having a talk with a friend of mine, during which he told me about a problem that he has struggled with for a long time. I listened carefully, and then shared some of the goal setting strategies that I have been implementing for the past couple of years. I explained that goal setting has been a total game changer for me. Whenever I set a new goal, I always give it a date by which it should be achieved, at least partially. If these deadlines are not met, I know that I haven’t done what I have promised myself to do.
