          Although the concept of setting goals in general is a great one to learn; which was explained in the above sections, it helps to be able to set goals in specific areas of your life separately.
       
          For example; if you want to better your career options, you will be setting goals that specifically cater to your career. Of course, career goals aren't the only goals that most people are looking to set. Other areas of goals include:
· Relationships
· Family
· Health and fitness
· Spiritual
· Social/cultural
         
          Let's take a look at all of the most common goals that you should consider and how best to go about each one.

          What would be the point in learning how to set goals in general and not give specific examples and instructions on the most common goals that are set? Let's get started now.

First of all what do you think stops most people from achieving what they want out of life? Perhaps it is a lack of talent, lack of ability, personal circumstances, and upbringing. I'll tell you this much; it's none of those.


          The single biggest reason for an inability for reaching goals is a lack of action, or not setting them in the first place or doing anything about it.
          If you don't start in the first place, then how do you expect to move forward? Many a life long adventure started with the smallest of steps. Action is the first step to achieving your goals.
          Most people are fine at choosing a goal to set, but are inept at reaching them. You can achieve everything you want by making one step.
          One step is all you need to make. One step today, one step next week or tomorrow, whichever is more convenient to you. The important thing is to keep making steps once you have started.
The trouble is, often the first step is the hardest, and the next step is just as hard. It is only after you have made a series of steps that it gets easier.
You need to know the truth about what is really holding you back. Motivation and goal setting go hand in hand. The goal is your journey and the motivation your fuel to get there.
You may have many goals, but no fuel to get there. You may have gallons and gallons of fuel, but no journey to go on.
          What can prevent you from going on that journey? There are many more things holding you back than you realize.
          YOU are probably the biggest cause. The way you approach a goal will ultimately affect whether you will achieve it or not. The good news is that you can break free from whatever is holding you back.
          Friends and family are next in line. They may have your best interests at heart, but often their inaction is what lies behind their advice to you.
          It is really common for those around to hold you back simply because they are not doing anything themselves. For example, if you are losing weight, some of your support system will inadvertently sabotage you by offering you food or alcohol.
          I'm not saying that all advice is bad, it's just that sometimes the most well meaning of comments can empty your fuel can faster than, well a very fast thing.
          You need to spot these things when someone or something is draining your fuel and put a stop to it, either mentally or physically. You need to break free from whatever is holding you back. Now that you know this, let's get started.

Self Esteem Basics
Synopsis

Self-esteem refers to the opinion you have for your own self. If you feel you’re competent and kind, good looking, or capable of doing things, this is a sign that you have high self-esteem.

But, if you have negative opinions about yourself and feel that you cannot do your tasks like others do or do not look good, you have low self-esteem. Sometimes, low self-esteem becomes the cause of anxiety and depression.

Therefore, self-esteem refers to how you think about your own self, how worthy you think you are and how much importance you give to yourself. It’s not about bragging about yourself, but knowing that you can do your best, even if you’re not perfect.


The Importance of Self-Esteem

It’s unfortunate that only a few people know the important role that self-esteem plays in their lives. The success that you have in your career depends on the effort that you invest in it. Also, the amount of effort that you invest depends on the level of trust that you have in yourself for successfully achieving your goals. Simply, if you do not believe in yourself that you will succeed, you never will. Besides, it’s next to impossible to get better business opportunities or career promotion if you lack self-esteem.

Low self esteem is often the main reason for disappointments in relationships. People with poor self-worth often experience difficulty in getting along with their partners, it as well as affects their sex life. People with negative images about their selves often feel distrust, jealousy, and problems with intimacy. Some indications of poor self-esteem include the following:

• Feeling of extreme jealousy

• Loss of decision making abilities

• Feeling of not being respected and cherished by their loved ones

• Developing a sense of dependence on others even on simple things

• Always feel pressured while doing tasks

• Display of excessive anger over simple misunderstandings

• Too much worry

• Frustration

• Feeling helpless

• Poor performance at school or the workplace

It’s extremely difficult to experience the joy of life if you have negative thoughts about yourself. If you always feel negative and have low self-esteem, you’ll never realize your success potentials and you’ll never feel happy in life. Even if things around you are perfect, you’ll never have the chance to enjoy them if you always have negative ideas about your own self.

How Self-Esteem Can Change the Life of a Person

A person with high self-esteem sees everything in a positive view and always feels confident and enjoys life. Even if hardships and difficulties come his way, he sees it challenges and never backs down. If you have high self-esteem, you’ll feel confident.

You will not allow other people to treat you in the wrong way or take advantage on you. All people experience ups and downs at some point of their life and it is ok. However, this doesn’t mean that you should back down and have low self-esteem. If you always have the feeling of not being worthy of something, you’ll never have the courage to try new things and succeed in life.

If you feel that you have low self-esteem, you do not need to worry too much as there are ways you can get rid of it and build self-confidence. Jot down the things that make you feel good about yourself, the things that you have done, and the compliments that others have given to you and this will make you feel good about yourself. If you’re an office person, stick notes to your computer or desk “I’m doing well” or “I can do it”.

These messages will be absorbed by your mind. Everyone is gifted with the power to do great things. Everyone is worthy and see to it that you keep these things in mind. Soon, you’ll feel confident and happy.

How Goal Setting can go Wrong
Goal setting can go wrong for a number of reasons. When these things happen, it can be a great bit devastating to the self esteem and can make the idea of setting any new goals mute.



Before we can look into what we can do about solving these goals setting problems, let's see what the problems can be. This section is really no more than a more detailed explanation of the above section, but I felt that it needed a section of its own to help you set your sights solely on how setting your goals can go wrong.

If it seems repetitious, it is because it is! But it is very necessary for this guide; especially for quick referencing later.
  • Outcome goals can be set instead of performance goals because it forces you to focus on the end result immediately instead of taking your time to go through the steps of goals setting. When you set goals properly you will be doing it in a step by step manner. Where you are using outcome goals, and you fail to achieve the goal for reasons outside your control, this can be very dispiriting and can lead to loss of enthusiasm and feelings of failure. Always set performance goals instead as this will give you a higher chance of succeeding.
  • Goals can be set unrealistically high. When a goal is perceived to be unreachable, no effort will be made to achieve it. Set realistic goals so that you can best decide how to go about achieving them.
  • In retrospect to the above, goals can be set so low that you feel no challenge of benefit in achieving the goal. Setting goals has been a waste of time. Always set goals that are challenging enough to be worth the effort, but not out of reach.
  • Goals can be so vague that they are useless. It is difficult to know whether vague goals have been achieved. If achievement can't be measured against your expectations, then your self-confidence will not benefit from goal setting, nor can you observe progress towards a greater goal. Set precise and quantitative goals.
  • Goal setting can be unsystematic, sporadic and disorganized. In this case certain goals will be forgotten, and the achievement of goals will not be measured and feedback will not occur into new goals. The major benefits of goal setting have been lost. Be organized and regular in the way that you use goal setting.
  • Too many goals that aren't given priority may be set, leading to a feeling of overload. Remember that you deserve time to relax and enjoy being alive and not solely focused on your goals and achievements.
