Setting goals is one of those things we fully intend to do, but never quite get round to. However if you realize just how much your life could be improved by this one simple task, you would make the time! Below are just 5 of the benefits to setting goals, so have a read through, then take 30 minutes to really think about your goals and write them down.

1.Targets, If you have nothing to aim for, it is easy to just drift along in life, fully intending to do all those things one day. But generally one day never comes and you don"t achieve what you want to and are capable of. Having a set goal gives you a target to aim for, with a specific end point. When you reach this target you feel great!

2. Motivation, persistence. Having a goal is a great motivator. Seeing that clear target and thinking of all the benefits that will come with reaching it will spur you on, even when your energy and motivation is low. Inevitably there will be a few ups and down on the way to achieving your goal "" these are par for the course and you must be persistent enough to work through them. Keep looking at your end point and its benefits and remember, persistence WILL get you there!

3. Priorities, Do you have several things on the go at once? You may have to juggle work, a husband, wife or partner, children, family, friends and so much more. This often means your own hopes, dreams, desires and needs are put on a back burner and the things you really want to do simply remain dreams. Setting goals makes it easier to achieve your dreams. When they are written down as goals, you can plan the time to make them come true.

4.Success, The most successful people all set goals. Only 3% of people in the U.S. have written goals, and according to research, these people accomplish 80% more than those who don't. Put yourself in the top 3% now and see your success and confidence sky rocket.

5.Confidence, Setting, working towards, and achieving goals gives your self confidence a huge boost and inspires you to achieve more. Even very small goals make a difference; you might make a goal in the morning to make 3 phone calls you have been putting off. Write it down in the morning, plan half an hour to do it and then feel the satisfaction when you put a big line through the to do list! The more you do, the more confident you become and everyone could do with more self confidence!

Remember goals don't have to be huge, life changing aims. Start with tiny things and see how good it feels to achieve something, no matter how small. I cannot stress enough how important it is to actually write down your goals. So take action now!
