Learning How to Set And Reach Your Goals

Do you want to achieve your goals? Do you actually want to change, improve and keep your new years resolutions? Or other goals? Learning how to set, and reach your goals is an art of being a successful happy person.

“I am so thoroughly convinced that if we don’t set goals in our life and learn how to master the techniques of living to reach our goals, we can reach a ripe old age and look back on our life only to see that we reached but a small part of our full potential. When one learns to master the principles of setting a goal, he will then be able to make a great difference in the results he attains in this life.”

~M. Russell Ballard

We’ve all heard of SMART Goals before, and if not I’ll explain them later, but more important than a SMART goal is the secret is learning how to set a VGPA what is VGPA? It is the art of not just setting a “goal” but learning how to set a meaningful goal that you can achieve.

  • Vision.
  • Goal.
  • Plan.
  • Accountability.

I learned this trick while serving a mission for my church, we would set goals every day but most of the time they were baseless goals and had no results, but when we started using SMART goals it improved, and when we started applying VGPA the goals started being achieved.
Let me break down each part to help you understand why and how to set a VGPA.

Setting a VGPA. Vision, Goal, Plan, Accountability.

Vision
What do you want?
(A broad long-term goal that you want)

Before you can set a goal, you need a vision of what you want, most of the time a single vision can lead to many goals. A vision is what you want? The core desire of what you’re working towards.
An example “I want to be healthier this year” or “I want to master the scriptures”
Now that you have a vision you can start to set goals to achieve it.

Vision without effort is daydreaming, effort without vision is drudgery; but vision, coupled with effort, will obtain the prize.
~Thomas S. Monson
