Goal Setting

Success in life is dependent primarily on goals. The puzzle of how to properly set goals is one that has been analyzed and discussed by a lot of professionals and philosophers but Seth and I have come up with our own way of thinking about it. Seth is pretty awesome when it comes to setting goals and has almost all the things he wants to do planned out. That's just the kind of person he is but I also think that his mission made him a lot more of a goal-oriented person. For us it's all about setting meaningful goals. If the goal doesn't resonate to you and isn't something that you don't really really want then don't do it!

 For example, I am setting a goal on being a happier person. I have plenty of reasons to be happy to be honest life is going great I just sometimes get down on myself or let little things get to me. Since I have a goal, I have to determine whether it is a long term or a short-term goal. Seeing as being a happy person is a good thing to always be it will be a long-term goal! So the next step for me would be to make some short term goals in order to accomplish my long term goal. These goals should be measurable so that I know that I am getting closer to my goal. For example I am going to make a chart that has every day for a month on it. On this chart, I'm going to put a smiley face sticker every day that I am happy just like I am in elementary school all over again! lol
That way I can measure a short-term goal of being happy more days than I am not happy each month! Now once you have a long-term goal and short term goals to accomplish it, you have to make plans to accomplish the short-term goals. For me, I am going to do a few things every day that will make me happy. I am going to read my scriptures every day, I'm going to pray everyday at least 2 times privately and many more with Seth. I'm going to take some time every day to take at least one good picture of myself since I looovve taking pictures. I'm also going to try to talk to my family in Albania more whether it is by messenger or talking on the phone. Lastly I'm going to start writing a diary that every day I end with talking about all the good stuff that happened to me. I think that if I focus on all of the good then it will be a lot easier to be happy!

So guys set your goals high and don’t stop until you get there!
