Think Before You AIM...

Life is not only about having dreams and goals; But it is also about knowing one’s own capabilities and limitations. Ideally, one should dream and aim the near impossible. But practically, one should know his own limitations and strengths before aiming at anything. After all, limitations are not mistakes and strengths may not last longer. But the one thing that lives forever is one’s ability to understand his own capabilities before setting any goals for himself.

This thinking will always ensure that you get the best challenges in life, wherein you are bound to give your full efforts to conquer your own goals.

“Learn to dream; Think before you aim”

Hi Prams,

you talk like a seasoned psychologist dear...:)

your posts are very enriching emotionally..:)

of course, aim what's near our capability and making greater dreams than what we can have is also being a very positive person...:)

your post is almost one good sermon on a pulpit or rather in a psychology class, eh!

good morning!

Goals must bye SMART..!!!

Specific
Measurable
Achievable
Realistic
Time bound..!!

this is what Shiv Khera writes in his book YOU CAN WIN...adn i strongly believe in it..!!1

as far as goals are concerned... di, i do have a goal which to achieve takes a min of 10-15 yrs...but i know one day i will achieve it...!!! no one in our family knows abt it but, one day the little girl of Meduri's will be someone...and yes, i thought before i aimed..!!!

hehehe..!!

An AIM always may not be about something like professional/ career, business or money matters. It may also be something like a heart's sensitive feelings (not to miss some special person or thing), it may be a silly thought of a brain and also it may be an everlasting feeling (to see the life blossoming with family always)of a mind.
I mean to say even Ideally aslo one need not to think, dream and aim a near impossible thing. One may also dream about a thing which was already happend, happening. It may looks like a wish (doesn't matter).
Somethings (many) are surely not impossible, only thing is we should make them possible (and keep them). :)

I think you are right when you stated that life is also about knowing one’s own capabilities and limitations. Introspection is a great way to understand both, Ideally, we need to do that every day to understand how much value we have contributed and how much time or effort was wasted.

It is just recently that I've tried doing this and I think it's done wonders for me in growing myself and overcoming the areas of improvement in my life.

Leo said...

no.. limitations are definitely not mistakes. we can prove that by enhancing those

limitations, they can be made into strengths too. stepping stones to strengths..
aim for the stars, so atleast you can reach the clouds.. so i have heard my mom say a

lot! maybe that is true! :)

Being Pramoda... said...

hi vinay,

aim at the best and you get something atleast..but when u aim the point, u need to get the point right..its too tough job..:)

Thank you..
