Here’s What My Hardest Goals That I’ve Set Myself.

Establishing personal goals is a fundamental aspect of personal growth and development. It is a process that involves careful thought, planning, and execution. However, achieving these goals is often easier said than done. People tend to give up on their objectives due to several reasons, including boredom, lack of motivation, or a lack of determination to succeed.

The level of difficulty that one faces when pursuing their personal goals is subjective and depends on various factors, such as personal circumstances, mental and emotional health, and the amount of support received from others. Personal circumstances play a crucial role in determining the level of difficulty that one encounters when pursuing their goals. For instance, someone who is dealing with a chronic illness or caring for a sick loved one may find it challenging to focus on their personal objectives.

Mental and emotional health also plays a significant role in determining the level of difficulty. Someone who is dealing with depression, anxiety, or any other mental health condition may find it hard to stay motivated and focused on their goals. Moreover, the level of support that one receives from others can significantly affect their ability to achieve their personal goals. Supportive friends, family, and mentors can provide the encouragement and motivation that one needs to succeed.

On the other hand, a lack of support may leave one feeling isolated and discouraged, making it harder to stay motivated and focused on their goals. In conclusion, setting personal goals is an essential step towards personal growth and development. However, achieving these goals requires determination, patience, and a willingness to overcome obstacles along the way. By understanding the factors that influence the level of difficulty when pursuing personal goals, one can develop strategies to overcome these challenges and achieve their objectives.

What I tend to find the hardest part about setting myself personal goals is sticking to them, long. It seems like when I was 17 and 18, were my years of setting goals and working hard to achieve them.

However, when I was 18 I set myself, probably the biggest, longtime goal of my life and that was to purchase a property before I turned 30. From my very first paycheck, I saved up a percentage of my wage and placed it into a savings account or ISA and never touched it. This went on for 10 or so years. Finally, after all the hard work, and having strict spending habits, at the start of this year I started the process of buying my flat alone with my younger sister. The process was long but I stayed determined. Yeah, of course, there were a few hiccups along the way, but we just took them as they came and after 4 long months we got the keys to our new place🏡.

I am so proud of myself for setting a goal and at some points, a huge dream that might have seemed impossible at times, eventually made my dream and lifelong goal my reality. I’ll keep this goal sorted and write about how my buying process went in a blog on its own.

Another goal that I set myself at 17 was to pass my driving test and get my license. So once I got my provisional license I booked myself a driving lesson and my journey began. I won’t lie and say it went by smoothly. In the two years of on and off driving lessons, with a life-changing family event and a failed driving test, in October 2013 I passed and gained my independence 🙌.

That’s enough of me talking about past goals that I’ve already successfully achieved. Let me get started on what my recent personal goals have been since moving out and always ones that I’ve set for myself during October and the foreseeable future.

One of the recent goals that I’ve set for myself is to eat healthier since moving out. I don’t mean eating rabbit food; like boring salad bowls every day or as a way to lose weight, instead, I want to start to cook tasty, hearty home-cooked meals. The other day my sister – who is an excellent cook may add – prepared a peppercorn sauce with chicken and creamy mashed potato dish. OMG, that’s by far the best meal I’ve eaten in a very long time. I will defo be getting her to cook that dish again😋.

A goal that I’ve set for myself this October and the foreseeable future is to go out for a walk every single day, even if it’s raining. A few months ago, I brought home a little Shih Tzu puppy [Bonnie] so achieving my personal goal of getting out and walking every day has become a little easier. Especially when she’s constantly telling you that she wants to go out. This girl loves her walks! It gives me a purpose to go out for a walk around where I live or in the open fields. I love to take Bonnie to fields, that surround my hometown in Northamptonshire. Whether I go out for a walk that’s 20 minutes or an hour long, I can feel my mental health improving – the stresses of work or daily life worries melting away and giving my mind a little fresh.

Another personal goal which I would say that I deal with on a daily is to better myself every day and try to let negativity take hold of every part of my life. It’s not always easy, especially when I am constantly surrounded by negative people who dwell on the past. Since I’ve moved into my own place, my ultimate goal is to distance myself from these kinds of people- easier said than done. I will say that a lot of things have definitely changed since moving out. Fresh start!

Setting goals is a crucial aspect of personal development and self-improvement. It is a process that involves identifying what you want to achieve and taking steps towards making it a reality. While it may seem daunting, setting achievable goals can be a straightforward and rewarding experience.

When setting your goals, it’s essential to keep in mind that they should be specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound. This means that your objectives should be clear, quantifiable, realistic, aligned with your values and purpose, and have a deadline. It’s also crucial to note that creating a long list of goals can be overwhelming, and it may lead to feelings of inadequacy and discouragement. Therefore, it’s advisable to prioritize and focus on a few significant goals that will have a positive impact on your personal growth.

In summary, setting achievable goals is an essential step towards personal growth and development. By creating a clear plan of action and breaking down your objectives into smaller, manageable steps, you can take control of your life and achieve the success you desire.
