If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.

You need to have a goal in life to find a direction. Without a goal, you would be lost in the many distractions that are available today. The distractions would push you into the comfort zone, and soon you’ll be distant from the reality of life. It would push you into the mental state that would become too weak to pursue a goal or a dream relentlessly. When you have a goal and a plan to realize that goal, it becomes much easier to lead a happy life, no matter how many challenges you face. It is because you have a vision for your future, and you know for certain that when the challenges are done with, there is a whole new world of possibilities and fulfillment waiting for you.

Achieving your goals would take time and brace yourself to face numerous challenges on the way. Anyone who ever achieved success was ready to compromise and sacrifice on the way, and you would’ve to as well. Don’t let the distractions get in your way and stay focused. The reference point of your life should be your goal and not your romantic relationship or desire to buy a new car or the latest pair of Jordan’s. It is okay to fall in love and have a romantic relationship, but it shouldn’t come in the way of your long-term goals. It is because when it comes to achieving success, time is of the essence. The world has transformed rapidly in the last few years, and when you hit the floor, you’ll realize the competition is insane. Unless you give better than the best, it would be difficult even to survive, forget about thriving.

Have a goal

Many of us are simply going with the flow in life and haven’t really had a one-on-one discussion with ourselves as to what we really want to do in life. If you haven’t done this already, it is the right time to close your eyes and ask yourself as to where you want to see yourself ten, twenty, or thirty years from now. The vision you see in your mind is what your heart beats for. You may not know what you want in life until you do a little digging in your heart. Once you know what you want to do in life, it becomes easier to make a plan to transform that vision into a reality. It is crucial to have a goal in life because without a goal, you would get carried away with many distractions that life would throw on your way. If you let distractions derail you from the right path, the journey of your life would become a nightmare.

Be Passionate

You need to be passionate to ensure that you get to where you want to be. Unless you have the burning desire in you to overcome the challenges and suffer any pain on the way to your goals, it would be challenging to stay focused or stick to the plan. Your dreams and goals should keep you awake and must provide you with the strength to push that little extra while your competition is sleeping. You must ask yourself every day as to what you did today that helped you get closer to your goals. When the answer to that question is a positive one, all the pain you suffered through the day would simply vanish. The goals and dreams are not achieved overnight, and it takes time. There would be many challenges, failures, mistakes, and low moments in the journey that you need to deal with. If you’re not passionate about your dreams and goals, it would be easier for you to give up midway.
