Five Benefits of Setting Goals

1. If you have goals, you have direction. You can invest your time and effort in a specific way that pays off.

A race car that is chained to the ground is the same as having no goals. You push on the gas pedal and the engine roars. The tires spin and smoke. Yet no matter how hard you push on the pedal, you go nowhere.

If you have goals, you push on the gas and go to a destination. Your time and energy give you results. You get what you want from life.

2. Goals motivate you and give you energy.

For example, when you are preparing to go on vacation, you get a lot more done than normal. You have a clear, firm goal to finish several tasks and then go on your trip. The excitement of the vacation goal helps you work hard and fast without getting tired.

Without goals, you feel lazy. You cannot find the energy you need to succeed in life. You prefer to watch television.

3. You have more control of your life.

When events in life knock you around, goals can put you back in control. For example, you get arrested by the police and spend time in jail for something you did not do.

Yet the day after you are released from jail, you focus on your goals and continue onward. The bad incident does not ruin your life.

4. You can have greater confidence. You can take the initiative. You can be a leader.

For example, if you and your group were lost in the wilderness, but you alone knew the correct direction to hike, the group would eventually follow you.

You would not follow someone else. You would not sit down and worry. You would take the initiative and lead your group to safety.

5. Goals give you hope for a better future. Goals make you happier.

Watch the fans at a football or baseball game. They have a goal to win the game. For a few hours, the goal helps them escape the problems of life. Even if they lose, they have fun.

Goals give you the same benefit. They help make life enjoyable, even exhilarating. Goals give you a natural "high" you can never achieve from chemicals or other artificial means.

"Happiness could be defined as the emotion of progress toward desirable goals." -- L. Ron Hubbard
