          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.

Tips: Getting Specific in Goal Setting

What is motivation?  Define it?. 


   1.  The motivation is simply reason for              people's actions desire and needs. 

    2.   A set of facts and arguments used in support of a proposal.

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.

Here Are The Major Differences Between Successful And Unsuccessful People by
abohrandy




Last year, Dave Kerpen, author and chief executive of Likeable Local, received a postcard that illustrated the traits and behaviors of successful and unsuccessful people.
The card came from fellow Entrepreneurs Organization member Andy Bailey, the chief executive of Petra Coach. Although the two CEOs have never met, Kerpen said in a 2014 LinkedIn post that the postcard has had a profound effect on him, "reinforcing values I believe in and reminding me on a daily basis of the attitudes and habits that I know I need to embrace in order to become successful."
The postcard, shown below, points out 16 big differences between successful and unsuccessful people.
Best 6

1. Successful people embrace change. Unsuccessful people fear it.

"Embracing change is one of the hardest things a person can do," Kerpen says. With the world moving fast and technology accelerating at a rapid speed, it’s imperative that we embrace these changes and adapt, rather than fear them, deny then, or hide from them, he says. Successful people are able to do just that.

2. Successful people talk about ideas. Unsuccessful people talk about people.
Instead of gossiping about people — which gets you nowhere — successful people discuss ideas. "Sharing ideas with others will only make them better," Kerpen says.

3. Successful people accept responsibility for their failures. Unsuccessful people blame others.
Truly successful leaders and businesspeople experience both ups and downs in their lives and careers. But they always accept responsibility for their failures. Kerpen says blaming others solves nothing. "It just puts other people down and absolutely no good comes from it."




4. Successful people give others all the credit for their victories. Unsuccessful people take all the credit from others.

Letting people have their moments to shine motivates them to work harder, and, consequently, makes you look better as a leader or teammate.

5. Successful people want others to succeed. Unsuccessful people secretly hope others fail.
"When you’re in an organization with a group of people, in order to be successful, you all have to be successful," Kerpen explains. That’s why the most successful people don’t wish for their demise; they want to see their co-workers succeed and grow.

6. Successful people continuously learn. Unsuccessful people fly by the seat of their pants.
The only way to grow as a person, professional, and leader is to never stop learning. "You can be a step above your competition and become more flexible because you know more," Kerpen writes. "If you just fly by the seat of your pants, you could be passing up opportunities that prevent you from learning (and growing!)."
Other major differences: Successful people exude joy, share data and information, and read every day, while unsuccessful people exude anger, hoard data and information, and watch TV every day.
