If You Could Achieve One Goal in 24 Hours

Before you set a time to set your goals for your life,you should also check to see if going after that goal is current time is worth the effort.

Having a goal that is measurable,specific and realistic makes a difference. We can have short term and long term goals. Long terms goals can be broken down in to a smaller chunks to make it easier to achieve.

That yearly goal can be broken in to monthly or weekly tasks that will help you keep motivated throughout the year to keep working on the goal and maintain it once you achieve it.
2. See final results and Benefits of the Goal

Many of us make goals and resolutions but give up on half way through. It is because we do not see the final end result or benefits of reaching that goal. It could be losing weight goal,final result could be looking great in any outfit,beautiful for girls and handsome for men. Being attractive to opposite sex is a great confidence booster for any of us,keeping that in mind,we should continue to work on the goal,when going gets tough.

When things are hard,think of the final results and benefit of reaching that goal to keep focus until we reach the goal.

3. List the Goal Obstacles

Many times,reaching goals can be tough as people do not think of any possible setbacks or obstacles that can come between reaching the goal. Nothing is easy in life,at least not so much cakewalk. Having a right expectations and back up plans always helps when obstacles come in between you and your goal to make you successful or looking beautiful.
