You have probably heard and seen people talking about setting goals both online and offline.

If you are among the few people that are lost concerning its meaning, then I will start by defining what goals are.


A goal is a plan that one wants to achieve. It is the desired result that one wants or is attempting to achieve.

In this article, I will tell you what you need to know before setting your goals.

What you should know before setting your goals


1 What do you want to achieve?

Before setting goals, it is pertinent you ask yourself what you want to achieve.  The thing is, setting goals is easy for most people but achieving them sometimes proves difficult because what you set is not really what you want to achieve. So, ask yourself what you want to achieve. Let it be something you want, not just what other people want or think you should want.


2 Why do you want to achieve it?

Also, ask yourself why you want to achieve it gives because your answer will give you emotional connection, and it will make you achieve them. For example, you want to earn six figures monthly because you want to help your family or live a comfortable life. Your why will give you a reason to constantly send out those job applications, do your work well, etc.


3 Group them:

Some goals are meant to be long-term, that is, they should be achieved in five years or more, while some are meant to be short-term, that is, within a year or more. Know when you plan to achieve your goals because it will influence how you work towards it, and the timeframe you have placed for them.


4 Have an achieving mindset:

It is needless to set goals that you think you cannot achieve because only negativity will fill you up, and you will not have the motivation to work towards achieving them.

So, have the mindset that you can achieve your goals before setting them because that will spur you into taking action.
