How to Set Goals and Achieve Them


Improving yourself with resolutions is not always easy. However, there are a few simple tips that make it easier for you to accomplish the goals that you set. Here are the key takeaways from this infographic.

1) Make Goals at Age of 3.
As young as the age of three, you have the ability to change your behavior and perform actions that can help you accomplish goals. This means that from a very young age you have the potential to improve yourself. However, it is always ideal to stick with just one goal at a time so that you do not lose focus or interest in what you are trying to accomplish.

2) Goals Are Similar.
You might think that your goals are unique to you, but most people make very similar New Year’s resolutions. The types of goals that people often set at the beginning of the year include weight loss goals, changes to spending habits, getting organized and simply enjoying life more. These are goals that almost all people can relate to.

3) Goals Are Not That Hard.
Most people tend to build-up the difficulty of accomplishing any goal in their mind. This means that they make any task seem much more difficult to accomplish than it actually is. Studies have actually proven that we make the effort required to accomplish a goal seem harder than it is in reality.

4) Make a Financial Goal.
More than 50% of the people that made a financial goal last year report that they feel better about themselves now. However, of the people that did not make a financial goal, only 38% feel that they feel better about where they are I life. If you want to make your current situation better, it might be a good idea to set a financial goal and stick with it.

5) Choosing the Right Goal.
Even though most people have the same desires, not everyone has the same abilities. If you want to have the most success in accomplishing a goal, you need to pick a goal that is relevant to you and that will make a real impact in your life. This goal needs to be specific, measurable and something that you actually have the ability to achieve. These are all factors to consider when you are trying to choose a goal to set. In the end, achieving a goal is all about making the commitment and following through.
