To Achieve Goals, Connect Them with Your Purpose

We’ve all set goals and reached some, and not others. Why is it that some goals are easier to pursue and achieve than others? Maybe it’s the way we think about them.

First define your goal, then identify the qualities that achieving that goal would bring you. This will help you focus with purpose on the bigger picture, and realize how incremental successes will contribute to bettering your life as a whole. After all, it’s about progress, not perfection.

For example, you set a general goal to be healthier. More specifically, you want to lose a few pounds. You set a definite number goal of how much weight you want to release. Now ask yourself, besides the actual number, what do you want to gain by losing that weight? Do you want to have more energy, improved mobility, to breathe easier, to sleep better, to reverse or improve an existing health condition? What is your purpose for the goal?

Define the benefits that your goal would bring you. When you aren’t focused simply on the end result as your goal, but instead on the benefits that it has to offer, you will have stronger, more concrete motivation for staying committed to the destination. Once you’ve reached your goal, the satisfaction you feel and the benefits you’ll enjoy will be an incentive for you to maintain that success or improve upon it.

This exercise can work for any goal. Define the goal, then identify the qualities that achieving that goal would bring you. Realize your purpose. This helps you to focus on the bigger picture of how individual successes can contribute to improving your life for higher good. Focus on your purpose and the benefits, and let them be your motivation for moving forward.
