Setting and Achieving Your Goals

So you want to be more successful at work, you want to make changes to your house, and you’re still promising yourself that you’ll start to exercise. Does this sound like you? If it does, then you may need help with setting and achieving personal goals.
Why should you set actual goals? Here’s one reason: When you set clear goals, you can watch your progress in achieving them, and you can feel proud when you finally reach them. Each time you realize a dream, you feel better about yourself. As you become more confident, you’ll be able to achieve more difficult goals.
Here’s how to do it. First, you need to decide what you want to do with your life

— identify your big dreams. Set a

long-term plan for fulfilling your dreams. Then set short-term goals that will help you take smaller steps to achieve your long-term goal. For example, make plans for the next five years, one year, six months, etc. You can even do the same thing for short-term goals. Just make smaller plans.
And here’s another tip. The results of one university study have shown that many people are more motivated to reach a goal when another person is trying to meet the same or a similar goal. So if you need some extra help with meeting your goals, try finding a co-worker to share that work project with, a friend to help you paint the house, or a workout partner to exercise with.

Example:
a   If you set goals for yourself, you _____.
a. can feel good when you reach them
b. might not need help achieving them
c. will become successful
 

 23 

After you have reached one goal, it’s easier to _____.
A
decide on the next step
B
find a lifelong dream
C
achieve another goal
 

 24 

If you want to achieve your goals, you should _____.
A
identify what you want to do
B
have a childhood dream
C
share your work projects
 

 25 

According to the article, you should _____ first.
A
set long-term goals
B
set short-term goals
C
reach a long-term goal
 

 26 

After you set a goal, you should _____.
A
identify your big dreams
B
tell people about it
C
plan small steps to achieve it
 

 27 

A university study shows that people who _____ are more motivated to reach their goals.
A
share the same goals with someone else
B
have many friends
C
are not successful
 

 28 

Some people achieve goals more easily when another person _____.
A
has achieved their goals
B
takes steps to achieve a similar goal
