How To Build Your Self-Esteem: Set Goals

What are your goals? This is a very difficult question for most people, but it is important to set both long-term goals and short-term goal. You need goals in life to be able to choose a good path in life.

E.g. you put on your shoes and walk out the door. What do you usually do in this situation? Do you walk around randomly until you bump into something of interest or do you have some place to go? Most of us walk out the door with a purpose. Maybe we are going shopping or to visit a friend. We have a specific goal and that makes it easier for us to decide how to get there.

You need to set goals for your life to choose a good life path. Having a goal makes it possible for you to set subsidiary goals. Every day you need to have something to do, something that makes sense, something that gives life meaning. Every evening before going to sleep you should think about next day’s goal. That gives you a reason to get out of bed in the morning and take action.

When you set goals then make them realistic goals and be prepared that sometimes life goes in a different direction and you will have to change your goals. When you set goals and reach them you will prove to yourself that you are capable of achieving something and that will strengthen your self-esteem. Keep breaking your goal into small achievable targets until you have a to-do list that you can put into action.

Task no. 5: Consider following questions: What does your life look like when you turn 75 years? What does you life look like in ten years from now? What does it look like three years from now? Next month? Next week? What is your goal for tomorrow?
