What have you heard about sharing your goals with others?
Well, let me tell you what the “society” says.
Don’t share them with anyone. Keep it to yourself.
To think of it, why is it said so?
Because someone else will do it before you?
Because someone having this knowledge will hinder your progress?
Well, my thoughts resonate the other way round. I don’t think that the world should work like this.
I’m all-in about sharing your goals with others.
Why do I think so?
Firstly, at times, your goals and ambitions are not clearly defined. When you share, you end up talking about it more and more.
Because of this, you tend to understand more clearly what you want to do, why do you want to it and you’re able to streamline the process more easily.
Secondly, the more you share, two things tend to happen – one, people start supporting you and pushing you more towards achieving it.
This also leads to real-time support too, in the form of partnerships and collaborations, which wouldn’t have happened organically in the first place.
More importantly, if your goal is something worth achieving and you share the journey behind it, others also get inspired to set a goal for themselves.
In my opinion, everyone should share their goals – be open about it – if you’re confident with what you’re doing and more importantly, why you’re doing it, then neither anyone else nor you should have any problems with it.
