How to be Successful in Achieving Goals

“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.” — Andrew Carnegie

We set goals for ourselves. We get excited and enthusiastically do the things to achieve that goal for the first few months (or weeks); then we missed and forget every once in a while; until the occasional forgetting becomes permanently not doing anything to achieve that goal anymore. This is what happens usually, and the reason for most of us not achieving our goals.

So what can we do to avoid falling into this trap? I say we should MARRY OUR GOALS.

  • BE COMMITTED. Make our goals a part of who we are by incorporating it to our habits.
  • BE FAITHFUL. Our goals should not be something that we can just give up. We should stick to them whether in times of difficulties (or failures) and triumphs.
  • BE PASSIONATE ABOUT IT. We should not settle for mediocrity.  We should always strive for improvement in our performance.
  • LEARN TO COMPROMISE. We should know how to prioritize. Let go of other stuffs that prevents us from progressing towards the achievement of our goals.
  • INVEST TIME AND ENERGY. We reap what we sow. If we do not invest, we can expect nothing in return.

So, when do you want to get married? 🙂

    1. Thank you Lisa! Glad to know you find inspiration and motivation from my post. 🙂 (Sorry for the delayed response. I just realized some of the comments for my posts are in my “spam” folder.)


      1. No problem! Actually you’re not the first telling me this and I fund out that you should tell your wordpress that I’m not a spam so could you press press the button ” not a spam” or a thing like that? 😀 sorry if I bother you but they told me it’s the only way to ” unblock” me! :/

    1. Thanks Nikki! I agree, compromising is one of the most difficult things to do…especially if you enjoy, care a lot, love or you’re really used to the things that you have to compromise…but that’s one of the challenges to better our lives! 😊

    1. Thank you, Jacque for your kind remarks on my blog. I truly appreciate it. 🙂
      I am still fairly new to blogging so I don’t really have plans in taking it to the next level, at least not for the moment.
      But I will let you know when I will. Thanks!


    1. Thank you Heather! I’ve read your post. S.M.A.R.T. goals really helps. I think most people failnin achieving their goals because oftentimes, they’re too broad and not time-bound. I want to lose weight next year is vague VS I want to lose 2lbs each week and shed 8lbs per month. 😉
