The Half Year Point: Are You On The Path To Achieving Your Goals?

The middle of the year has dawned upon us and I don’t know about anyone else but it makes me wonder how far along have I gotten to achieving my goals for the year. I have never been one of those people that makes a list of New Year’s Resolutions but I do kind of have an idea about things I want to get done in the year. There is something about setting a goal for yourself that makes you work harder to accomplish it. How many of you all create “to-do” lists and love the feeling of checking something off when you’ve gotten it done? So let’s take it to a broader perspective; how many things have you checked off this year?

Most people by this point have literally forgotten any New Year’s Resolutions they made for themselves or they simply haven’t really made any effort to achieve them thus far in the year. Things happens, people come and go, careers and relationships change. Now that we have found ourselves in the middle of the year, it’s time to reestablish and reaffirm the things we need to get down.

Our generation has been known to be slackers; a generation that doesn’t know the meaning of hard work and determination. On the other hand, no other generation has faced the hardships that we have thus far. Therefore we need to make sure that we are on point with everything.

Start with smaller goals that progress towards a larger goal. Sometimes having a general goal can be so overwhelming that you don’t even want to tackle it or choose to avoid it because of how large it is. Create a master plan and then set up little goals that will bring you to the larger goal. Write them down! Don’t just walk around with all these objectives in your mind; I guarantee you that you will probably forget half of the things that you planned to do in the first place. Finally, don’t let any unnecessary distractions get in your way. Sometimes people are brought into your life simply to take you off track from what you are doing. Others may have been lingering around just waiting for the opportunity to take you down. Surround yourself with people that are trying to achieve just like you are. Positive energy will do nothing but lift you higher.
