Many of us don’t know what they want in life. How come that we don’t know what we want in life? Can we fix this problem? What is the importance of goals in life? Why do we need goals? These are all questions that can come up to the mind of a person and that is normal. We all forgot something in life, we forgot to discover who we are and we forgot how to set goals and what goals are.
Success is steady progress towards one’s personal goals.
– Jim Rohn
The importance of goals
We underestimate the importance of having goals. We are living in an era, where we only live for being popular on the internet. Being busy on social media and showing our latest picture of our cat, has become our most important priority. It is really a pity to see the world being like this.
Being able to set goals will sharpen everything about your life. Many of us don’t even have a goal in life and this related to the lack of personal development. Being able to set goals, will make you look at the world differently. If you don’t have a goal in life, you will not be able to see where you will end up in life.
Having goals will build character, you will make yourself the person you want to be. To do this you need to have a strong belief in your own goals. The most important thing is, to have a goal. It will give meaning to your life. Walking around without a purpose is one of the most devastating things.
Having a purpose in life that you pursue, will make you the person you want to be. That is how important goals are. Don’t underestimate it. Keep working on yourself and have goals in life.
A life without a purpose is like a life without oxygen.
– Seyfullah Semen
Why do you need goals?
Having a purpose in life and knowing why you do something, is just so important. Let me explain to you why it is so important.
First of all, in order to be successful, you need to have a purpose and you need to have a vision. When these things come together, you get the beautiful word goal. When you have decided that it is time for you to become something in life, you need to know what you want to become. The first step to know this is to know who you really are and you need to be familiar with your flaws. You need to know it so well, that when somebody asks you to write down your flaws and your strengths, you need to be able to write them down without thinking about it too long.
This is something I keep saying, but personal development is important. It is the beginning of a better life. I have done it myself and I know how it is. I am telling it out of experiences. Start with knowing yourself better. After you have done that, you still don’t have something to work for.
The second important thing is to find your passion. This will mostly come after you know who you are. As you can see, these are just steps you take in order to make yourself a successful person. A very important thing is, to know why something is your passion and why are you doing it.
The final step you will have is setting a goal or goals. Goals will sharpen your vision, it will make you better understand yourself and it will make you put emotions in your work because you know why you are doing the things you do. Having goals will really make you the person that you want to be. It will build the character you need in order to achieve your goals. Set goals from the moment you found out what your passion is.
Something to live for
When you wake up and you don’t even know why you are waking up, will make you depressive, because you are going to work without a purpose. This has become a very big issue in the era we live in. People feel like robots. The way people think of life has completely changed because we don’t know what our goals are in life.
A lot of people are depressed, you know why? Because they don’t have a purpose with what they do. When they work they don’t feel satisfied with their work. Please do not become that person. The Japanese have a beautiful word for your purpose in life, they call it Ikigai.
If you have something to live for, it means that your life will have a meaning. We as humans have control over our own lives and we can make sure that we put meaning in our lives by having a purpose with what we do. Imagine that you wake up, at whatever hour, and you just feel energized, because you have something to live for. It is a very different mentality. Being able to have this means that your goals really make you happy.
Goals are just so magical. Give your life meaning by having a purpose. Try to find your “Ikigai” and don’t let depression become a part of your life. This is why goals are so important. It makes you feel alive and it makes you feel that you are doing something important in your life. Actually, you are doing something important, you are giving shape to your life. That is what happens when you have a purpose in life.
It is important to any person to have a purpose in life. The reason for that is pretty straightforward, you need it in order to sharpen up a lot of things in your life. If you don’t have a goal in life it means that you have not put much effort and time into personal development and that is a pity. Put in more hours in personal development.
In order to become successful, you need to have a vision and a purpose in life. When these two words get combined, you get the beautiful word, goal. The first step is to know yourself better. Keep working on yourself and become somebody that knows all of his flaws and strengths. Ones you know yourself good enough, you will need to find your passion. Most of the time it will follow each other up. If you know yourself, you will automatically find out what you like the most and what you want to do in your career.
We are humans and in the era in which we live in right now, we have lost something really important, we have lost the ability to discover our Ikigai (purpose) in life. We have become creatures who feel like robots and who get depressed very quickly. Depression has really become a very big problem nowadays. It is all because we just don’t know where we are heading. We don’t have a plan, we don’t have a goal that we are working on. In the end, we get depressed, because we don’t like our job. Try to have a purpose in life, you will see that you will even wake up differently.
