What is your aim?
Everyday you are asked : “What is the aim of your life “? Have you ever seen anyone to say that “My aim is to become a human being. “Actually we never focus on this aspect of our life. We set up our aim to become doctors ,engineers, lawyers and so on but we forget the fundamental aim to become a good human being. Try to become a human first then life will give you your true aim. It’s easy to get obsessed with goal setting. You’re hooked and will do anything to get where you want to be. However, this carries the risk of burnout. Be realistic with your aims from the very beginning. Having drive is good, but remember that you’re also human and need rest and recuperation like everybody else.
Create a timetable and set aside enough time each day or week to work on your goal. For instance, if you want to enter a 10k race, your first step should be drawing up a training plan – one which ticks off the right amount of training without the risk of exhaustion. Goal setting rarely runs smoothly. You will hit stumbling blocks that make you question why you attempted in the first place, but that’s part of it, and the sooner you accept that the better. Rather than letting failure bring you down, acknowledge that it’s happened and learn from it. Take note of what worked well, what didn’t and move on. It’ll make you a stronger goal setter. Losing sight of the end result will encourage you to veer off course. One of the best ways to stay motivated is by visualising the change you want to see. Make this image clear in your mind – the ‘you’ in X amount of weeks time – so when the odd setback does happen, you won’t be fazed and will come back stronger than ever.
