Importance of Having a Goals in Life

It is important to have goals in your life. Coaches, motivators and authors tell you

that you have to set goals. There is a lot of talking about goals. Institute of

Technical Education - Nochchimoddai is also an institute like that. We are monitoring

our students frequently in order to see the development of their own path. We take that as a responsibility and we make sure that they grow.

Is goal setting important?

Goals are important in the sense that they give you direction in life. It is better to have a simple, or not so important goal, than having no goals at all. Having goals is like having a map. You know where you want to go, and that gives you excitement, motivation, more energy, and a reason to get up in the morning. You become more alive.

Do you have goals? I don’t mean wishes. A real goal is not a wish. It is something, into which you will put all your efforts and energy, so you can achieve it.

A goal does not have to be something big. Not everyone wants to achieve big goals, on a major scale. Most people are satisfied with simple goals, and that’s okay. They want a comfortable, happy and healthy life, and this is possible and within reach. Setting a goal, does not necessarily mean striving for something colossus, simple goals are no less important than big ones. Only a certain percentage of the population is really interested in major goals and is willing to do everything to achieve them.

Your goal might be to become a millionaire, own a chain store, or become a famous actor or singer. However, most goals are not on such a scale. Most of them are more ordinary ones.

In Institute of Technical Education - Nochchimoddai we lead our students to follow their goals. Because we want them to be live better life. Life is easy on you if you have goals.

Why Setting Goals Is Important?

1. Goals set a direction

When you have a direction, there are less stress and strain in your life, because you know where you are going. It’s like having a map showing you the direction. You don’t waste time going in circles and arriving nowhere.

2. Goals motivate and make life more interesting

When you have a goal, you feel that you are moving toward a destination that is important for you, and this makes you feel happier, safer, stronger and more confident.

3. Goals help you focus your mind

When you have a goal, focus your attention on one goal and don't waste your time and energy on whatever comes your way. Without a goal, you can start one project and then move on to another before completing the previous one. If you never finish what you start, you will never achieve anything worthwhile. It means, as the famous saying goes, being a jack of all trades and the master of nothing.

4. Setting a goal is like having a road map

An airplane has a set route that it must follow to reach its destination. The same applies to a ship. Weather and wind conditions can affect the course of aircraft and ship. However, knowing the exact target allows the pilot and captain to make the appropriate adjustments. That's how it is with goals.

With a clear goal, you know where you're going and can always correct your course if you deviate from it. Setting a goal is like having a map, a compass, and a clear route to your goal. You know where you are and where you are going.

5. Setting goals creates hope and confidence

You experience hope, inner peace and confidence when you set a goal and work towards it. It's like turning on a flashlight, which will light your way and help you walk in a straight line instead of going in circles. Institute of Technical Education - Nochchimoddai we give them advise also help them to follow their goals.

6. The journey is no less important than the goal

Enjoy the journey to your destination. The destination is important, but the route is no less. On the route you will learn new things, have exciting new experiences, interact with people and acquire new skills. It's like traveling by train to a specific destination. You can be nervous, constantly looking at your watch and impatient to reach your goal.

On the other hand, you can enjoy the trip, contemplate the scenery, read a book, or even make friends with fellow travelers. You will experience more happiness and satisfaction by enjoying the journey and not just waiting. To reach your goal. You will be happier working towards your goals with this mindset.

7. Enjoy the road

The goal provides the direction, but you should enjoy all the steps that lead to the goal, all the creative thinking, action, and rewards. The journey can be long and the actual moment of arrival and enjoyment can be short. So why not enjoy the ride instead of impatiently waiting for the destination to be reached? When you go on a journey, the goal is to enjoy the road, the scenery, and the food, not just to reach a specific destination. Now that you know why it's important to set goals and work towards them, you can enjoy every moment you spend working toward your goal. Make it fun and happy, and your life will be fun and happy.
