Goal: the object of one’s ambition or effort

We all have at least one goal we want to reach. Maybe it’s becoming a doctor, a YouTuber, getting an A on your next physics test, or gaining more followers. A goal can be anything: small or big, short-term or long-term.

It’s easy to set goals, but the big question is how to reach them. Here are a few tips on how to reach your goals and be anything you want to be.

1. EFFORT

Something isn’t just going to happen because you want it to. A key part of achieving a goal is working hard towards it and doing everything you can to make it happen. For example, if you want to be a doctor, you need to study hard, put effort into getting good grades, and work to get into a good medical school. But, it’s also important to not just work hard, but work smart. Don’t overexert yourself or else there’s no use.

2. BE CONFIDENT

Be passionate in what you want to achieve. Make sure it’s what you want for yourself and not what others want for you. Don’t let other people tell you that your goals are impossible to reach or that you should stop trying. Stand up for what you want and who you want to be.

3. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF
