The importance of setting the right objectives



By Raghav Gupta

“If we aim higher than we expect, we could reach higher than we dreamed”

Do you have any aim in life? Well, every person does have some aim. In simple words, an aim in life is a set a goal that an individual wants to reach or achieve by working hard. In fact, without an aim nobody can work in a disciplined way. An aimless life is like a boat without a rudder – having no course of its own, incapable of reaching any destination. It means if one walks on the road with no mind to reach any specific place, one eventually reaches no destination. Therefore before starting any journey, we must first decide where we wish to reach. And this timely decision will show us the probable ways to reach the destination. Else, it would be a meaningless journey wherein one will waste time, wealth and energy all at once. 

At the same time, our conscious effort of taking the right decision makes a lot of difference. We have often heard this: ‘if you aim it right, it’s right for you’.So, it’s important to set the right target. Parents and teachers play a significant role in the lives of their children when it comes to setting the right goal. In addition, an individual’s surroundings inspire him/her to set goals.  That’s not it!

An individual’s mindset plays a key role that helps a person set his/her aim. Yes, you guessed it right: ‘A well chosen aim is itself a great motivation’. It elevates our mind and prepares us to do something great. It gives us an opportunity to utilise the full potential within us. An ambitious person who stretches out his/her hands towards the moon may not have it but may at least  know how far it is. And that experience is valuable and rare indeed. Therefore for anyone, the best aim would be in which he/she feels happy and can do something worthwhile. 

But what’s the first step to achieve your aim or goal? 

We should always be more proactive, maintain a balance, be focused, stay positive and not hesitate to embrace our failures – these are learning experiences that would aid our success. So it’s true that setting an aim and acting to achieve stands important to lead a successful life. Moreover, the timely execution of an action plan with a proactive attitude is the key to success. One of the best ways to stay motivated is by visualising the change and likewise by achieving step by step milestones. So I would suggest everyone must start working on it. Yes, set an aim. Because it’s now or never!
