Let's Talk: Goals | Do We Need Them?!


For today’s post I wanted to talk about goals ... body goals ... life goals ... career goals ... any goals you may have. As a new year is approaching you may want to set yourselves a goal with something you want to achieve by this time next month, at the end of the year or at some point in your life. Or if you haven't, is there a reason behind this or are you just unsure of where or what may be next for you? Have you set yourself new goals? Do you stick to them? Do we actually need them? I have SO many questions which in fact, I should be asking myself!

Just a quick little disclaimer: This post was a little bit spur of the moment, as I wanted to get some things off of my chest, so it may be a little jumbled, but I hope you do enjoy it anyway!!

Goals can be hard to set for yourself as you don’t want to set them too high that you lack motivation because they seem to far out of reach but at the same time you don’t want to set them too low that you’re holding yourself back from what you can achieve.

Rather than just saying to yourself 'I want to do THIS' or 'I want to get HERE', whatever it may be,  my advice would be to set lots of little goals on the way to your ultimate one, otherwise you may feel like you aren't making any progress, when actually slowly but surely you are, and this could in turn make you lack motivation. Whereas, if you're achieving lots of little goals along the way, it'll will become more apparent to you on the things you are achieving and have already achieved!


I saw a quote not long ago ... I can't remember it word for word, but it basically said that we should remember that you have things now that  you used to dream of. Whether that's a job, a car, a new house or something else and this is proof that you have made progress and achieved something you once wanted to and if you celebrate the small victories in life .... eventually you'll realize they were all part of something much bigger.

I'm always setting myself goals, but I don't feel like I tend to take them seriously enough until I look back and see that I've actually achieved things or am doing things now that I once hoped I would. Over the time that I've had my blog, I've posted a number of different goals posts including my blog goals, a few bucket lists and lots more personal posts. However this got my thinking, why are we worrying and fretting about the things we haven't yet done or achieved, rather than celebrating and being proud of the things that we have. 

I think that our generation can constantly feel like they're not doing enough in order to do their best in life, maybe because they've had one lazy day, or have had a day away from doing their college/ uni work, blog work (in my case) or just need to take time for themselves. I don't know about you, but I constantly feel the need to be doing something and if I'm watching TV, or shopping or doing something that isn't ticking off my to-do list, then I feel guilty and stress myself out about it.
