Who are you? What are you doing here? Are you here for you? Whether you know why you are here or not, you are here for yourself. You are here for you. Because if you are not here for yourself, no one is going to be here for you. You need you than others need you. So why do you need you?

You need you to…

Improve your life. Because if you do not improve yourself, no one is going to improve you. It is your responsibility to take care of yourself. Whatever you can do to make your life better, you must do it. Do not wait for anyone to do it for you. Abraham Lincoln once said, “The way for a young man to rise is to improve himself in every way the can…” If you have the courage to do what you fear, you will improve. You will grow. You will live a meaningful life.

You need you to…

Figure out how to live. It is not enough to be alive. It is your responsibility to know why you are here, what you are doing here, where you are going with your life, and if you are progressing. Remember, you are not here to exist; you are here to live your life. To do that, you must first figure out how to live. Abraham Lincoln said, “If we could first know where we are, and whether we are tending, we could then better judge what to do, and how to do it.” Wherever you are going, assess where you are before you make any move.

You need you to…

Change your life. You need you to figure out what you want to do with your life. Remember that you are responsible for changing your life. No one can change you. It is you who can change you. If you do not do it now, when are you going to do it? If you want things to change, you must do it for you. That is why you need you. According Jack Canfield, “It’s up to you to make the change, to do something different. The world doesn’t owe you anything. You have to create it.” Yes, that is why you need you. Because no one can create you. Only you can create you. Why not now?

You need you to…

Challenge you. Life full of different challenges. If you are not for you, if you are not here for you, if you are not doing what you are doing for you, you won’t be able to face life. And to win you must challenge yourself. Richard Branson says, “If you challenge yourself, you will grow. Your life will change. Your outlook will be positve. ” So if you want to grow, if you want to be successful, you must be there for you. You must do whatever you are doing for you, not for others.

4 Easy Ways To Set Realistic Goals

“Whatever your goal is you will never succeed unless you let go of your fears and fly.”- Sir Richard Branson

“Everyone needs something to aim for. You can call it a challenge, or you call it a goal. It is what makes human.”- Sir Richard Branson

What is your goal? What is that one thing that you can’t stop thinking about? If you haven’t figured it out, you can start now.

Why do you need a goal? Why is it important to have one? It is important to set realistic goals. Goals motivate us to get up in the morning. They keep us going. They keep us trying. They keep us grounded. If you do not have one or two, it is never too late to start. You can even start right now.

When you have a goal, it is easier to figure out where you are going, what you want for yourself, and how you are going to get it. When you have a realistic goal for yourself, it is easier to get from where you are now to where you want to be. Because it gives you direction. It shows you where to go, what to avoid, and what to focus on. If you want to be successful, you need one. If you really mean it, let us start right now!

It must be what you want to achieve for yourself

Do not set goals that other people want you to pursue. Even if you achieve them, you are not going to be happy with yourself. Why is that? Because you haven’t satisfied your soul. Do not do what you hate to do. Because you are going to give it up when the going gets really tough. Do not put your time into something you do not like. Do not put your time into something that doesn’t motivate you, that doesn’t make you happy. Look, if something is not making you happy, there is no point in doing it. Life is too short. So why waste it on something that is making your life miserable? Why?

It must be challenging

If you want your goal to make sense, it must be challenging but not impossible to achieve. If you set an impossible goal for yourself, when it gets really tough, you will give up. Do not make it too difficult for yoursself. Because if your goal is too difficult to reach, you won’t succeed. You will fail. If you do not want to fail, if you want to achieve your goal, make it attainable. Make it realistic. Make it your own goal. Because if your goal is not yours, you won’t succeed. You will fail. If you do not want to fail, you must make sure that it is what you really want for yourself.

It must mean something to you

If your goal doesn’t mean anythng to you, there is no point in pursuing it. For your goal to make sense to you, it must be special to you. It must be something that you really want to get for yourself. It must be something that keeps you going. If not, it doesn’t worth your time. According to Rick Hansen and Dr. Joan Laub, “A goal has personal meaning if it matters to you, if it has personal significance.” If what you are pursuing doesn’t mean anything to you, you must stop it. If not, you are just wasting your time. And even if you succeed, it won’t make you happy.

It must be specific

When it comes to achieving your goal, you must be specific about it. Do not be a generalist. It must be specific. When it comes to making your goal specific, Rick Hansen and Dr. Joan Laub write, “Making your goal specific and definable is important because it allows you to measure, monitor and evaluate your progress.” They are right. Because the only way to know whether you are making progress or not is to check what you are getting. If you are not getting the right results, then you are not making any progress. To fix that, you must ask yourself if this goal is really what you want for yourself.

You must commit yourself to your goal

This is why your goal has to mean something to you. Because you cannot commit fully to something that doesn’t mean anything to you. It is easier to set a goal than to commit to it. And it takes commitment to make things happen. When you commit to your goal, you will do whatever it takes to make it happen. When you commit to something really special to you, nothing can stop you from making it happen. Will you commit to making your dreams come true?
