Goal Setting – Why You Need to Be Proactive


Goal setting has the ability to turn your dreams into reality and to dramatically change your life for the better. However, your goals are not going to achieve themselves if you just sit on the couch and do nothing. You have to be proactive and actively think about what you need to do to make your goals are reality. In other words, you have to get out of your comfort zone and be proactive rather than reactive. This article shares several tips with you on how to make this happen.

To change from reactive to proactive you need to change your mindset and phrase your questions in the right way.

Rather than saying “I don’t know how to do this”, say “Where can I learn how to do this.”

Rather than saying “I don’t have time for my goals”, say “Lets plan my time and see when I can work on my goals.”

Rather than saying “What I am doing isn’t working”, say “What do I need to change to make me more effective and efficient.”

Being proactive doesn’t just apply to your goals. It also applies to how you deal with people. If someone is questioning your goals or something you have done, you still have a choice to be reactive or proactive. A reactive response may be you getting angry, a proactive response may be you taking the time to hear what they have to say, and ask questions back. Obviously, this is a much better approach.

Being proactive will help you in your goal setting and in life. Rather than seeing certain circumstances as problems, you see them as opportunities. If you take this approach you will be more successful, and more happier in your life.
