Today as I was starting my run I decided to make a goal. I was going to aim to beat my fastest 5k. I kept looking at my timer and could see that my time was on pace to beat it. I started thinking about how important goals are to have in your life. I'm not just talking about fitness related goals or weight loss goals, goals in general.
Without goals we would have no reason to strive for success. We'd be complacent in life with no struggle to become better. We would have no way of gaining self-discovery or self-worth.
How do you set goals? Do you remember them mentally? Do you write them down? Do you make a goal poster where you can visually see the goals? It's funny how we all set goals in a different way with the same ending intentions, succeeding.
Being successful in life is something we should all strive for. Whether you're wanting to succeed in work, personal life, physical activities, etc. it's all small steps that we take to evolve and become better.
It's important to remember to celebrate all goals that were hit, whether they're big or small. Buy yourself clothes for hitting a certain weight, take yourself on a vacation for getting that promotion you've been working so hard on, draw yourself a bubble bath for not yelling at your kids for one whole day. No matter what your goal is, celebrate it. Being able to recognize your accomplishments is a healthy way to build self-esteem. There is no better way to feel good about yourself than knowing that you succeeded at something that was once just a thought in your head. You made it happen and didn't settle until it was finished, that's always something to celebrate.
