The Importance of Setting Goals
During this time, we did some activities related to our personal goals. This included goals we had accomplished and the goals we still want to accomplish. We made a rollercoaster of highs and lows of our goals. My rollercoaster had mostly ups, but also a couple of downs. For the downs, we had to think how we could fix them.
We also talked about personal, academic, and family goals. We had to write down our goals and how we could accomplish them. Writing my personal goals on paper was harder than I expected because it is one thing to have goals in your mind – we all have goals – but the hard thing is thinking about how you will accomplish them. This means making up a plan and following through because there’s no reason in having goals with plans if you’re not planning on following through.
This goal-setting has really helped me put my mindset on a higher level. It made me realize that when you really want something, you will try your best to accomplish it. In my opinion, when you try your best, the outcome is beautiful.
