Goals give you 'GO'

Goals can help provide that motivation ; the willing to do and go forward - Andrew Carnegie

Goals not only help you to develop initial motivation by making your dream obtainable, but they also help you continue to be motivated --and that creates momentum. Once you get going on the success journey, it will be very hard to stop you --Your Road Map for Successs, John C. Maxwell

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” -Aristotle

“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” -Jim Rohn

Whatever it is, it demands consistency.

As long as we are not consistent in what we do, we will not be able to develop the habit

Do it daily:
Whatever you set out to do, when trying to develop a habit do not skip a day. The key is to keep doing and repeating the behavior each and every day, preferably the same time and in the same way every single day until it is stuck with you and you feel that something is missing when you do not do it.
“Good habits, once established are just as hard to break as are bad habits.” -Robert Puller

Replace a bad habit with a good one
Fear Allah wherever you may be; follow up an evil deed with a good one which will wipe (the former) out, and behave good-naturedly towards people.” [At-Tirmidhi]

How many times have we heard this teaching, replace bad deeds and habits with good ones? Decrease your bad habits and increase your good habits. Slowly but surely you will succeed in replacing and wiping the bad habits that you possess bi’ithnillah.

Ask Allah for Help:
Last but not least, the most important and significant practice a Muslim can do is to ask Allah (Subhanahu wa Ta’ala) for His Guidance and Help to let you achieve what you have set out for. You will succeed, insha’Allah. -

اللهُمَّ لا سَهْلَ إلا مَا جَعَلتَهُ سَهْلا وَ أنتَ تَجْعَلُ الحزْنَ إذا شِئْتَ سَهْلا

O Allah! There is nothing easy except what You make easy, and You make the difficult easy if it be Your Will

Ya Allah, tidak ada kemudahan kecuali sesuatu yang Engkau permudahkan, Engkau menjadikan kedukaan itu mudah sekiranya Engkau kehendaki.
