Every student sets goals for themselves. Every person has to have dream to give themselves meaning, from the dream job to live accomplishments. Dreams and goals are a part of every person’s life. Without them, we would have nothing to work towards and have no motivation. There are ways to help keep yourself motivated to accomplish your dreams.

Motivation is the reason we do what we do. It is what drives us to accomplish a task or goal and it is what keeps us working towards that destination.
Every person is motivated for different reasons, even if they are working towards the same goal, for example, you might want to become a policeman to help people, and others might want to be there for the power and so on. For people who are intrinsically motivated, they have the power from within to make changes and work towards their goals, the phrase anything’s possible if you put your mind to it, jumps into my mind. They do not need external forces to push them achieve their dreams. Some people are motivated by extrinsic reasons, for example, parents pushing them. These are those that need other forces to make them achieve their goals. It may be money, praise or other rewards. Most people are motivated by a combination of the two. The way to accomplish your goals is to find what motivates you and work towards those goals.  

Make goals.
If you write down the steps you need to achieve to reach the end result, it will be easier for you to take those steps one by one, for example (yes another example), there are certain steps you must take to become a barrister in the UK, list them take note and find what you need to know about these stages. Visualize your goal through writing or by pictures. This technique can even work for smaller goals such as cleaning out a closet. Write down the steps you will take and tackle one or two small steps each day. Find a picture of they way your want your closet to look when you are finished and hang it where you can see it. Visualizing your goal will help you see what you want to accomplish and will help keep you motivated without bogging you down.  

Setting up a timetable.
For long-term goals, you may not be able to accomplish them in a few days. Some achievements take weeks or months and yes even years. Have a reasonable time frame in mind and work a little every day to get to the end result, of course if your in university then try hard each day to memorise at least one key point. When you accomplish one step towards your final goal, mark each day off your calendar    

Having realistic expectations.
Understand that you might have setbacks and try to not stress yourself over these bumps in the road. Achieving your goals will not be easy and if you get frustrated with setbacks, you are more likely to give up. Keep working on your goals and do not beat yourself up if you have one bad day. Stay motivated and just vow to pick up the pieces and continue the next day do not get caught up in a negative cycle of thought.
