Goals are set by people every day everywhere in the world. People who set goals accomplish much more than people of equal education and ability who do not take time to set goals. Whoever live his life by principles will accomplish much more in life. You must have this fact in mind if you must prosper in life. You needs to build this eight scriptural principles into your life in other to be successful.
1. Decide what you want
In life you must not leave your life to chance you must make a decision on what you want to become in life or what you want to achieved. In other to make a perfect decision you must first consult God because He is your creator and He knowns what is good and perfect for you. "Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails" (Proverbs 19:21).
2. Think on paper
Make sure to put your goals to paper. Write it where you can easily review it on a consistent basis. Writing your goals down gives them a sense of permanency. It also energies you. Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity. Don't just have your goals in your head it will not get you where you are going. It will only get you to anywhere.
3. Establish a deadline
In one of my articles I said "a goal that has deadline will inspire you to work extraordinarily". Without a definite beginning and ending you will be procrastinating things your ought to have done. This will end in failure for you or kept you at a spot for a longer period of time.
4. Make a list of what you need to do.
Always keep this list before your eye at all times. Make it your track to run on as an athlete.
5. Convert your list to a plan
This principle will help you to organise your plan. Decide what you need to do first and what you can do latter. Prioritise your plan. An organised plan is always better.
6. Act immediately
You must implement your plan if you must succeed. Do something about your plan. A mediocre plan that's implemented is better than a brilliant plan that's not implemented. "Be very careful, then, how you live not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity".
7. Do something everyday to moves you forward.
Build your plan of achieving your goal into your daily schedule.
8. Have a goal you're willing to devote your life to.
Have a life goal and set your eye on that goal at all times.
