Are you attempting to quit smoking those ever expensive cigarettes? This article describes how creating a goal or target can help you to succeed in life. Setting targets has among other things helped me to quit smoking cigarettes. I hope you enjoy reading my article.
With respect to the targets a book will always stick in my mind; a book which had an interesting description of a survey that had been commissioned for 100 kids who were in the final year of their regular schooling. The main question the people who commissioned the survey were interested in was about where the children wanted to be in five years time and what they wanted to be doing, for example in their business life.
It goes without saying that the majority of kids at this age are rather un-mature and only five of the answers ended up being considered as a proper target for the future. Five years later these one hundred people were contacted again and were asked to fill in yet another survey. The results were quite staggering as the five children who had set a goal for the future had a higher combined net worth than the other ninety five added together. Money of course is not everything in life, however for me this showed, that is if you believe everything that you read, that you are more likely to be a success in life if you set yourself a goal.
I then looked at the aspects of my life with which I was not happy with. At this time of my life I was smoking about 15 fags per day. This was something I quite enjoyed but which I knew was not healthy for me and something which also cost me a lot of money.
I set myself small targets, I would firstly reduce my intake to only ten a day and after two weeks reduce it down to five. I would then try to totally stop smoking after around a month.
This sounded so simple however proved to be quite difficult. I was well aware of the importance of sticking to my targets and would often remind myself of the main reasons as to why I wanted to stop smoking. I am happy to say I was successful in my quest to stop smoking, even though it did take rather longer than one month.
