Tips For Setting Goals For Your Personal Development

Tips For Setting Goals For Your Personal Development is something I got started with when I first got started online. Personal growth was and still is very important to my success. In this article I will discuss three tips that if you imply on a daily basis you will see results. We will talk about setting goals, time management and self discipline.First we will discuss setting goals and the impact it can have. Setting goals is one of the first things I learned to do when I got started with my internet marketing. Creating goals for your personal development will give you a strong confidence in just about everything you do. Your home, spiritual and business life. I break setting goals down into three steps. You first need to have a long term goal. This could be a year or more down the road or in a month or two. That is up to you. These are your main goals. Things you want to achieve. With these long-term goals and what is very important is setting a time frame on achieving your goal. For example like today is December 1st 2021 so I would create a goal like “I will be making $400 per day as an affiliate by November 1st 2022″After we have our long term goal establish in our personal growth and development plan is we now need to break that goal down into smaller goals. I break my down into monthly or weekly goals. Of course these goals or steps if you will are going to help me reach my bigger or larger goal. And again, even with these you want a set date that you are going to reach. For example “I will have 25 articles written and optimized by January 30th 2022″After I have my weekly or monthly goals set I then break those down into daily goals. Of course those are to help you reach my weekly or monthly goals. This could be something like “Today I am going to write two 400 word articles for my business” This is all what I did in my Personal Development Plan I created back when I first got started online.For time management your gonna want to work on your hardest task first thing and get that out of the way. The hardest task usually comes down to what will have the greatest impact. I call this we want to “eat that frog”! Something I learned from Brian Tracy. Now this brings me to our last step and that is self discipline. I feel self discipline is what runs it all and without it it’s hard to do what we should do even if we do not want to.

Charity – Incognito

“Well, the first surprise of the season has shown up in a Salvation Army bell ringer’s bucket,” said the local TV anchorwoman’s cheerful voice. “A mystery philanthropist has deposited a gold coin from the 1800s into a donation site outside a local mall. The treasure, a Spanish gold coin worth over $500, showed up the day after Thanksgiving. There is no word on who the anonymous donor is,” she finished, smiling.

Doesn’t this kind of story bring a smile to your face? We’re inundated with bad news, but the idea of making a high dollar donation and seeking no recognition is something that can melt even the coldest heart.

After a little more research, I learned that every year, tens of thousands of dollars worth of non-monetary gifts mysteriously turn up in the bell ringers’ buckets: diamond earrings, rare collectibles and even an occasional Rolex watch.

While collecting financial donations for the less fortunate, unsuspecting volunteers are pleasantly surprised when they discover a priceless item tossed in amongst the spare change.

These sorts of contributions speak to the humanity of donors on several different levels. First, the simple act of charity. Second, giving without expecting or wanting recognition. Third, a departure from materialism. While any type of charity is to be embraced, the second and third ideas are some powerful notions I’d like to explore further.

When we give, it should be out of a sense that it is the right thing to do; not because we want our name on a building or an award named in our honor. If you recall the Monopoly game that McDonald’s sponsors annually, you may remember that the million dollar prize was awarded to the winner who discovered the Park Place card tucked into their food purchase. When the winning piece was finally unearthed, it was sent to a non-for-profit children’s hospital in a plain, white envelope with no note, no name and no return address. This, faithful reader, is giving at its best!

Finally, its wonderful to hear that individuals have donated priceless collectibles. Speaking as someone who loves to collect, its hard to part with the tangible treasures I’ve obtained over the years. However,

When a one-of-a-kind item is given to help those in need, it reminds us that life is short and we are simply borrowing everything we acquire.

At this time of year, please think of these stories when you give. Now, I’m not suggesting you take your great-great grandmother’s silver tea kettle to the nearest discount store and stuff it into a bell ringer’s bucket.

However, Make a game of giving! Think of ways you can turn charity into an exciting way to assist! Can you slip a gift certificate under the door of someone who could really use some assistance? Or have a delivery of food items made to a pantry, completely leaving your name out of it? Or, maybe something that doesn’t cost money at all! How about a visit to a retirement center just to sit and talk with residents for a while?

Whatever you do, know that it is the right thing. We are so fortunate to have so much and its only right for us to share with others. If that assistance can be provided anonymously and in such a way that helps simplify our lives, then you have created a win-win-win situation! The most charitable giving comes when we expect nothing in return, save for the feeling received knowing we’ve helped someone who needs it!
