Obstacles are what you see when you take your eyes off the goal. It is easy to get distracted sometimes especially when your goal is not well-defined.
The moment you make up your mind to do a certain thing, it is then that other things begin to attract you. If you are not careful you will get drifted away by the waves of life.
I was hitting a conversation the other day with an elderly woman and she went on talking about how proud she was about her sons. She had been complimented several times for raising her kids well. “If you want something yet you can’t afford it, do not buy it”, She told me. “That is what I taught my sons and they grew up to be very happy”, She added.
Goals, goals, goals. Always have goals. A goal is like a map to your destination. A goal will decide every step that you take. The elderly woman taught her sons to save up for the things they craved for and until they could afford them, then they could not have them.
As soon as you learn to set up goals and gear up towards achieving them then you will see that everything will begin to fall into place. Simply cut everything that is swaying you away from it. It could be the company you keep or the places you go to or the things that you do.
How do you plan to achieve your goals?
