How to Achieve Goals

goal acheivements

“Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex. It takes a touch of genius – and a lot of courage – to move in the opposite direction”—Albert Einstein

Life is not supposed to be easy and since the fall of man from the famous Garden of Eden, it has become hard and today it seems harder for many men to get ahead, due to circumstances and events that surface and work against them or so they believe. Many tough men have armed themselves with battle axes, then charge ahead toward their major targets on the business battlefields to fulfill their ambitions, then only to find themselves landing flat on their back. Next, they wonder out loud, “why should I bother?”
A good many have given up after their first fall to defeat while others have turned their attention toward easier targets, which aren’t very promising nor productive. They have complained about the obstacles that they faced and how it stands in the way of their achievement toward their goal which is money, the good life, the perfect wife, power to rule or whatever aim they failed to accomplish.  

Obstacles are things that block the way and prevent or hinder men’s progress from point A to point B and surely there are ways around them. Simply just try again, but this time go about it using a Scientific Approach or use the better term Personal Strategic Plan.

A strategy is a term borrowed from the military, which employs tactics, the system created for analysis, bluff, for the purpose of bringing about an end or means or enforce planned actions that are projected to bring about a favorable outcome. It is used in business and it can also be used in our personal life to find ways and means to remove obstacles and ensure a good outcome for our own personal benefits. 

Problems or any kind of conflict is won through Strategy. Think of a Personal Strategic Plan as a Rifle aimed at a target or as a straight direction which will get any person to a certain point in life, that will help them to overcome or remove the obstacles in their way, and aid the mind to figure out how to encircle and destroy the enemies or whatever is standing in the path.
Get a personal notebook include a pen and sit in front of a mirror, while observing your reflection and ask yourself these questions. Observing your goals written on paper will enable them to become strongly fixed objects.
  • Who am I?
  • What is my purpose in life?
The mind is the starting point of all things, therefore, write down the answers as they come to you and create a Personal Mission Statement, which may go something like: “My major aim in life is to achieve success and prosperity in the field of business and remove all obstacles in my path toward my attainment and no matter what task I have set before me or what I am entrusted to do, I will give the best of myself and put everything into ensuring that I achieve my goal.”

Next, create a Personal Vision Statement, example: Within the next six months, I Leonardo De Rux will achieve the sums of one million dollars by providing excellent services to my customers to the best of my capacity. Aggressive marketing and promotion will be employed to promote my business enterprise to others with proper value and principles. My standards will be raised by…..

Now that you know who you are and what is your purpose in this Universe, it is time to fashion the proper strategy to attain the major goals, whatever they may be.

 It has been said that “Knowledge is power”, but in today’s age it has been translated into society as “Information is power.” Having information about our, environment, our employment, our enemies, our business is vital to make proper decision concern our fate.
Fill yourself with purpose and direction by knowing your own strength and weakness to know what one is capable of. If certain knowledge is lacking, according to the goals you plan to pursue. Then it is important that their attainment is achieved before going to the next level or if it requires utilizing others talent then go ahead a do so. Consider learning and mastering a skill at or seek out the skills and talent of professionals at Fiverr who can aid you with your business transformation. Whatever is needed to locate them from where they are available and obtained in order to move from one point in life to another.

Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never be in peril” Sun Tzu 
Establish a connection with anyone who has accomplished similar goals or locate a mentor who can give you the encouragements and advice required. For example, if you wanted to be a skilled Mechanic you would find someone to pass on knowledge and skill to you and not just depending on textbooks. Similar to the Chinese of old whom adopt students as their disciplines. There are many to be found online and you can locate them with just a few keying on Google
Set your goals in steps, because before you can walk you need to crawl and before you can run you need to learn to walk. For example, if your aim is to get to position D, you need to arrive at position A and go in the order of A, B, C until you land on D. If you take a big jump from A to D you might end up in an accident. Break up the goal into small pieces and attain one before the other.
Set the date and time you wish to accomplish your mission. Go back to your Mission Statement and outline the time you intend to complete the goal. For example: “On the fifth day of November 2020, I Leonardo De Rux intend to be in control of XYZ Corporation as its Owner and Director and nothing will stop me, for it is my rights and desire…” Deadlines will help one focus on the goals ahead and do all that is possible to attain it include strength one motivations.
