One of the reasons we live is to get things done. But to get a lot of things done in life, there are so many things that have to come together to make them happen. If you get this one thing right, you will reach your goal faster than you ever imagined possible.

“All successful people have a goal. No one can get anywhere unless he knows where he wants to go and what he wants to be or do.”- Norman Vincent Pearle

What is this one thing? Wherever you want to go in life, you need something to get you there. You can’t start going without this one thing. In order to do well in life, this is what you need to know: LEARN HOW TO SET SMART GOALS. Nothing else. If you master the art of goal-setting, you have mastered everything.

To move from point A to Point B, you need to have a plan. You need to have a goal. If not, you are not going anywhere. Even if you manage to go somewhere, you are not going to go too far. You need a goal to reach your destination.

“When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the actions steps.”- Confucius

Your goal is your road map. It is your plan that will get you to where you want to be. It is the plan that will move you from where you are now to where you want to be. In order to make this happen, don’t set goals that you can’t achieve. Set small goals, not vague goals. You must set a realistic goal for yourself. The people who are doing well are those who set great goals for themselves.

If you set great goals for yourself, there is nothing you cannot achieve in life. Set one for yourself, and commit yourself to making it a reality.


Forget Yourself In The Process

There is joy in helping other people. There is connection in helping other people. There is life in helping other people. There is happiness in helping other people. There is.

As Anne Frank famously put it, “No one has ever become poor by giving.” That is right. When you help other people discover who they are, when you help other people find happiness in their lives, when you help other people achieve greatness, you are helping yourself. There is life in helping others. It will come back to you.

You will enjoy helping others if you are not expecting anything in return. You will enjoy helping others if you forget yourself in the process. If not, you are going to be exhausted, because no one will be able to pay you back what you have given to them. You will enjoy helping others if you just do it.

Whatever it is that you do, forget yourself in it. Forget yourself in the process, in the game, and you will enjoy the game. Don’t think of what will go wrong, don’t worry about the outcome, don’t worry about why you are even doing it, just do it! Just focus on the process, and you will never regret doing it.

When you help people, just help. Be a helper. The world needs more helpers.

Be a helper. You can help in a big way; you can also help in a small way. Help other others, and others will help you. Serve others, and others will serve you. When you do it, remember to forget yourself in the process.
