Many people have failed in achieving their dreams in life, the reason is simple and that is they never thought of setting a specific goal and a plan to achieve them one by one. Here are simple process that you can go through to set your personal goals. These steps can help you achieve your dreams and goals more easily. I have used them and so many others did and today i am happy for the success achieved, use the steps to pursue and achieve your goals in life.

1. You need to identify your personal values and state clearly your mission statement.

Your personal value is the first direction. If you can identify your personal values, your personal goal will not go wrong. The starting point of all achievement is desire.

2. Figure out the goals you want to achieve.

After you know your personal values, find out what you really want to achieve in every area of your life. Life has many aspects and in order to dive into a happy life, you should set goals in every aspects. Setting personal goals shows these life
aspects. Personal SWOT analysis is a look at you and your life. It is a tool to help you find out if the goals is
achievable. Don't set goals that has no values.

3. Write your goals down,very important. Make sure the goals are S.M.A.R.T and they are top quality goals. You must write your goals down on a piece of
paper ,put or past them were your eyes can see it all the time. If not, they will only become dreams, you may add new goals as well but you need to be focused.

4. You need to list out the skills and knowledge required to reach your goal.

Success needs a lot of preparation and can not just happen over night. If you want to be successful, you need to prepare well. Nothing
happens just by accident. Take a look at all of the factors that are keeping you from accomplishing your goal and develop a plan to
overcome them.
You also need to find out the people or group you need to work with to reach your goals. Get all the factors needed to help you achieve the
goals.

5. You need to develop a personal action plan.

You need to make a detailed schedule according to your goals. Develop a strong and positive personal action plan and follow them righteously.

6. Take progress report and update your goals accordingly.

Make sure you are making progress. If not, analyze why the goal is not met. Find a coach or friend to help you if you have trouble in understanding your plans.

7. Learn to celebrate your success
in any step of goals achieved. Congratulate yourself,a bottle of wine with your friends or family is not bad. Don't be greedy. Say thank you myself (call your full name) for working hard to achieve success. Then go out and buy yourself a gift.

8. Don't be stagnant, start all the process again.

When you have achieved a goal, you may set a new one from the beginning. Cultivate good goal
setting habits. Goal setting is a life long process. Once you have
completed one goal, you should work on a new goal. I believe with these powerful information on goal setting,you can now set and achieve your goals.
