To reach a goal or to have an aim, you don’t need to know all the answers already. But you must have a clear idea of the goal you want to reach. What you don’t start today is never finished tomorrow. Many tend to forget that. If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams and endeavour to live the life you have imagined, you will meet with unexpected success!

With 2008 coming to an end, it’s worth one’s while to take stock of where you have been and where you want to be in 2009 —financially, spiritually, intellectually, emotionally and physically. Here are some easy-to-follow tips: n Beware of thinking repeatedly about your list of aims for 2009. Do not get increasingly anxious.. instead complete it.

Psycho-therapy and self-help books encourage you to put in writing what you want.. create a visual picture.

While dealing with criticism and difficult people, remember that it’s only natural to be frustrated. Everyone has a point of view from which you may learn something.

Create a road map of the year 2009. Don’t be surprised when you achieve a part of your goal. Discover how simple it was all along! That should be enough encouragement to tackle the rest of it.

Prepare a list of what you know about yourself and what you must change. If it’s not on your list, it will never happen. Imagine how much will be left undone, so prepare a list now!

Don’t allow yourself any excuse if some items are not included in your list. You may add them as and when required. Better late than never. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!”

The enormity of your list should not scare you. Tackle it properly, the easier bits first. Slow and steady does it. Don’t cut it in size.

A word of caution — Don’t be too laidback. Period.
