Goals are what keep successful people moving. Without goals, no dream would have become visible.
There are no shortcuts. People work hard, remain consistent and discipline, and get the results they wished years ago.
While multitasking mars your productivity and delays your success, sticking to one goal helps you go better in understanding the game of success.
Your life changes when you achieve one big goal rather than getting distracted by a thousand smaller goals.
The fundamental abilities you grow while chasing your one goal at a time has astounding results on other areas of your life – family, relationships, mental and physical health. Not only you learn to remain patient but also you become more humble and grounded.
Three universal laws to keep in mind while pursuing your dreams are:
- When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps. – Confucius
- A winner is someone who recognizes his God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses these skills to accomplish his goals. Larry Bird
- You can get anything you want, but you have to have faith in all your ideas. Stick to your goals and have an undying faith.
Dreams come true when we finish what we’ve started, irrespective of obstacles and circumstances. Stay positive and count on to the following five big miracles that happen when you stick yourself to your goals.
1. You Become A Problem Solver
If you strictly chase one goal in life for a long time, you find that problem solving is a skill.
Where most people change their focus as soon as they confront the obstacles that hinder their success, you figure out different ways to solve the problems. Eventually, you achieve your goals while others are still moving from one goal to another.
The longer you remain with your goals, the sooner you learn that you’ve all the abilities to overcome any trouble in life. That what solution you are seeking is within you and unlike others, you begin to develop a phenomenal habit of taking actions in one direction.
2. You Start Believing 80/20 Rule
The rule simply states that 80% of the success comes from focusing on 20% tasks.
What astonishing thing about people is that when they begin their journey, they try to do all the kinds of stuff they can possibly do.
They focus on multitasking until they face mistakes and errors. They immediately get convinced that their dreams are not possible and move on to some other goal, leaving the current goal in halfway.
Successful people stick to one goal and persist whatever problems come across their paths.
Successful people figure out what’s working and what’s not.
By and by they learn the secret that brings success. They repeat the same secret or task over and over again to bring the same results.
They work less and get more. They have enough time for their work, friends, and family. They live independently and happily.
3. You Begin To Seek New Opportunities
When you stick to one goal for a longer period of time, you develop all the qualities of successful people – discipline, hard work, patience – and have almost every skill to bring the desired results.
Therefore, you can seek more opportunities in your area of expertise and double the quality of your life.
You also become focused on finding more skills that will help you in the years ahead.
4. You Become More Confident
It is difficult to begin a journey. To continue it is even more difficult.
Studies show that over 92% people never accomplish what they want in life only because they never stick to them long enough.
Remaining 8% of people have more confidence and self-esteem. They look at life from a whole new perspective and remain positive even in toughest of situations. Until they finish one goal they do not shift their focus on another.
5. You Become “Do-It-Yourself” Person
People always expect more from others than they expect from themselves.
On not receiving the expected behavior from others, they get disappointed and fall in the trap of blame-game. They curse the society, parents, friends, and everyone for the failures in life.
However, people who stick themselves to one goal quite certainly figure out that we cannot climb the mountains on someone else’s shoulders. That we’ve to do everything by ourselves.
Blame-game is an excuse and a sure way towards sundered relationships.
Concluding, we’ve found that how sticking to one goal can make you a problem-solver, top performer in your area of expertise, attracts new opportunities, makes you more confident and aware you about your responsibilities.
It’s always self-doubt that hinders our growth. If we decide to remain positive and do not predict the results until the work is done, we receive far better results than we’ve ever imagined. Though you can adjust your plans to reach your goal in less time, adjusting goals can limit you to find your true potential.
