GOAL - This is the keyword! You must define your goals/targets. But it is only then will you be able to reach it. At first, It may be intimidating to set your goals, But here is a simple formula that will help you in not only setting your goals but also reaching our goals.

Life is constant change. Or Change is the only constant in our life. And every January as we welcome a brand new year, we look back at all the things that we would like to change in this new year. As you welcome the new year, you set new targets. And goals enable you to achieve these targets.

But then, everyone sets goals. But only a few ever really achieve their targets. The big gap here is due to unrealistic, vague or demotivating goals that are almost as good as not having any goals at all. 

AS you are settling into this year, let us change that situation of goals in your life. In this article, I am going to walk you through a step by step process of setting goals that will help you grow personally and professionally.

These steps will help you take charge of the changes that you want to make happen in your life for greater success, growth, happiness, and fulfillment. Now is the best time to start achieving.

 How do I set my goals for 2018:

  • To start with, pick up any 1 wish from the list.
  • Understand why you want to fulfill this wish, what will achieving this wish do for you…
