Learn How To Reach A Goal In Life With A Few Simple Steps

I can remember my brothers child was so determined to have a bicycle. Now he was over three years old at the time. His dad told him that in order for you to get that bike he would have to learn and earn it.

He asked what earning was and his father broke it down for him. Because he wanted him to understand how to reach a goal in his life. He explained to him a few simple steps it would take to achieve his goal.

His dad made him clarify what he really wanted. It wasn’t really the bike. It was that he wanted to be able to ride the bicycle.

He loved to watch those young guys on television that could do all the tricks and jumps with those simple machines. So when you break your goals down, write out what it is, that you really want to do.

How 3 yr Old Teaches Goal Setting

Then his dad ask him to look up the bike that he wanted. The child was pretty smart and got up on his dads lap and they hunted on the internet for the trick bike that he wanted. They then printed a picture of it and the young fellow hung it in his room on the wall.

You Have To Earn It and Own It

His dad told him that he would have to save up his money for the bike that he wanted. He made him put his mark or name on the photo and put a date when he thought he would achieve that goal.

Now he wanted to achieve his goal before his next birthday, before he turned 4. So he had plenty of time to save his money because his birthday was in August. He had six months before that would happen.

The next thing that happens is his father is explaining that you will have to build up your muscles to be able to ride that bike. You know the exercise where you lay on your back and lift your legs in the air and act like your peddling a bicycle. So the young boy started doing these exercises everyday.

His dad, also told him he would need balance. So, he made him stand on one leg and hop around then switch legs. The little guy would do that every single day. So the young fellow was getting plenty of exercise.

Plus, he was determined. He had his goal hanging in his room and he would look at that picture of that bike every single day.

You can do anything you set your mind to do. Whatever it is. This or that, all you need are the solutions to your small problems.

Be Proud Of Your Goal And Share Your Goal With Others

When people would come over and visit the young man would ask them to come in his room and show them the bike. He would explain to them about if they wanted something they should dream about what they want. You got to believe.

See my bike up there on the wall he would tell them. I am getting one of those. They would laugh and carry on and just try to please the youngster. The young guy would tell them that if they do not believe in what they really wanted they will not succeed in getting what they want.

He was really into getting that bike. That little guy was even selling eggs and doing chores for his grandfather to make a few bucks. He would stuff all his money in a little bank that he had, to include his little allowance.

Boy, he would save every penny. If he found a penny he would pick it up and store it in his hiding spot.

Reach A Goal By Seeing Yourself Doing It

His father would ask him after a couple of months went by and find out if he still wanted the bike. He would tell his father about the dreams he was having about the bike. He would ask his son if he was riding it in his dream.

The young fellow responded with no but I saw it and I see it every night when I’m sleeping.

OK son, you can see it but why are you not riding it during your dreams? He wasn’t sure so he asked him a couple of more questions about his exercises. From then on it became like a obsession to the little guy. He was determined to ride that bike in his dreams.

Dream How To Reach A Goal And You Will Get There

Turn Your Dream Into A Goal

Then one day before his dad was leaving for work the son came running out to his dad and told him that he finally had a dream about him riding that bike. His father patted the young fellow on the top of the head and gave him a big hug.

He told him that his dream would come true now. You just needed to let everyone know that he could ride a bike.

Share your goal of riding that bike or whatever your dream is because it will get more deeply ingrained in your wonderful mind that can achieve anything you allow it to.

Have Determination Drive & Enthusiasm

He would watch his older brother and neighbors ride their bikes and would just be amazed. They would all tell him that he could get on and they would help him. He refused. Saying not until I have my own bike. He would watch them and compliment them.

They were a lot older but this young guy did not give up.

This kid was incredible. He had determination, drive, enthusiasm, and would not quit until he reached his goal. All excited and was learning how to get the things he wanted in life with goal setting techniques.

That little man was training his mind to believe so strongly that he knew he was going to succeed, no matter what. Therefore, he was learning how to reach a goal in life step by step.

Then on a 4th of July weekend the family was at a family get together and one of his cousins is talking to him about this bicycle he had that he was going to give away. My nephew finally got his bike. It was used but he was happy. Then he still did not ride the bike.

Don’t Quit

But he would push or pull it every where that whole weekend long. Morning till dark that boy was pushing that bike. He didn’t even try to get on. He just pushed that thing around that farm until he would fall asleep.

It was so funny because everyone would ask him when he was going to start riding? The little guy would say you have to take a lot of little steps to get what you want. But I’m almost there.

He was believing down to the smallest detail. He had him a plan and he was taking action. The little guy just wouldn’t quit.

Finally the weekend was over and my brothers family left to go back home and they brought the bike with them. All that young man would talk about was him riding that bike when he got back home. He got home and again started pushing that bike around the yard.

Encouragement Will Help Your Succeed To Reach Your Goal

Then the older children came over and were giving him encouragement that he could ride it. I just need a couple of more minutes. He kept pushing that bike and finally he told them that he was ready.

Now, he was about to achieve the goal he really was reaching for.

The little guy got on and they gave him a big push. Boy, he went to riding that bike like he had done it his whole life. Big smiles and he did not fall or anything. The kid was riding like a champ.

It was almost his fourth birthday and he was enjoying his new ride. Excitement was written all over his face. Sure enough, he had reached his goal. Now guess what happened when his dad got home?

Confidence set in and he calls his dad into his room.

His dad asked him where is the picture of your bike? He told his father that he already accomplished that goal and was moving to the next one. Dad, can let me show you a picture of the four wheeler I want next?

Can you print that out so I can hang that up there? His dad started laughing and gave him encouragement.

Success Will Come If  YOU Hang In There

It Gets Tough Hang In There

You see if you train your mind to learn and earn to succeed you can pretty much do anything you would like. Therefore, you got to get down to the specific thing that your wanting or have a desire for.

Then design yourself a plan of action to reach your goal. Reverse plan. You see, these are the baby steps to get to that main goal.

Talk about it. You have to make yourself believe that you can do it. Do not keep it all stuck inside your own mind.

Learn Some New Skills {It May Not Be Easy}

You might have to learn some new skills along the way. It may not be easy. You might have people tell you that you cannot do that. Just keep trying to reach your dreams no matter what. You might even be delayed.

Just change the date when you plan on getting there. Hang those goals up and look at them everyday.

Take an action step so you can get a little closer to your goal. Be confident. Motivated to reach your desired destination. The more you do something the better you will get at it.
