Studying Tips: 5 Steps To Goal Setting Success

  1. 1. Studying Tips: 5 Steps To Goal Setting Success
  2. 2. Life without order can be chaotic, and the best way to create order is to set goals. Goal setting can be the key to having success and happiness in your life. Everyone already knows how to set a goal, most people do it every year with News Years Resolutions, however it is sticking to and achieving the goal that can become difficult. In order to attain the goals you set you must know exactly what you want out of it, be passionate about it, and have a solid plan of action. While you may find yourself facing many obstacles along the path to your goal, you can use these 5 tried and true methods to help you achieve the success you want and deserve.
  3. 3. 1. Know exactly what your goal is. Your first job is to discover exactly what your goal is. What will achieving that goal really look like? Be as specific as possible about exactly what your desired end result is. Your success will be a measure of your clarity - since an achievable goal plan cannot be created around a vague "dream."
  4. 4. Is your goal focused on trying to get into a certain college? Do you want to make more money? Would you like to become better organized? Once you set your goal, you need to define it clearly and completely. The more detail you include, the more likely your success. Envision how you will be or feel when you achieve that goal, write down steps you need to achieve in order to get there, and try to anticipate any possible road blocks along the way and how you will handle them. This can be challenging for some, but without this clear picture you will not have the proper focus to achieve your goal.
  5. 5. 2. Be willing to pay the "entry fee". Success isn't achieved by sitting and waiting for things to happen. Achieving a goal and having a set plan to achieve it by go hand in hand. Think of yourself as an author writing a story. You have a rough idea in your head of the plot line of your next novel (which is going to be a bestseller by the way!) You write that down on paper, and slowly but surely, the plot line develops into a solid story. You start developing the characters, their nuances, and their influence on your plot. You start mapping out the events in your story that will help your novel to develop. The moment that roughly thought out plot line becomes a solid story, it becomes a
  6. 6. novel. Now apply this methodology to setting out a plan to achieve your goal. But consider the "entry fee" to this as well.
  7. 7. Creating more study success may mean less recreational time. Getting an A+ in Maths may require you to watch less TV. It's the "full glass" theory. If your life (and your time) is already full to the top, there's no room for something new. The entry fee is carving out the time to create that amazing thing for yourself.
  8. 8. 3. Focus on your goal. In order to achieve your goal you must make it a priority to focus on it every day. I am sure you have heard the phrase, "old habits die hard", and it is said for good reason. Old mental habits are hard to break and without constant and clear mental focus on your goal they can easily overwhelm and take over. If you find yourself about to fall into your old habits, stop and make a clear mental note of what you want, how what you are about to do does not help your goal, make the correct action, and move on. With this daily repetitive action and focus, you will be that much closer to breaking your old habits and making room for the new goals in your life.
  9. 9. As stated in step two, life will try to get in the way of your success, don't let it! By staying focused and recommitting to your goal every day, you will make sure you stay on course. Remember that you are worth it and you are never the backseat driver to your own life!
  10. 10. 4. Get passionate. One of the most powerful tools in your "success tool box" is having real passion for your goal. Why passion? Because intense passionate desire for your goal will help you burn in those new neural pathways even faster. Many scientific studies have shown that intense emotion (i.e. passion) is a key success tool. Plus (and this is really a big plus), intense passion will also help you rapidly override any inappropriate old "failure messages" stored in your subconscious mind.
  11. 11. 5. Take consistent steps. The most difficult step for many people is taking the actual steps to reach your goal. The best course of action is to take one step at a time. Each small step will lead to bigger steps in your success. Think about it like building blocks. We can't create a castle with one big block; we need to take one small block at a time and build up to our ultimate goal. You cannot sit back and wait for that castle to build itself, you need to be proactive and make one small step toward your goal each day.
  12. 12. Remember, life is simply what you make of it. You can create the life you desire, provided you know what it is that you want and focus on it with passion. This intense passion and focus can only bear fruit if you take action. Don't just dream about it, do it!
