Setting goals is important. Goal setting is important as you fix up a schedule and you want to achieve something is a time frame. You are also clear about what you are trying to achieve in a time frame. It acts as a great motivator. Do not be vague.
Be very clear and it will be even better if you would like to get the things done in a calculative way. That is to set numbers. While setting goals you must be realistic. If you set something which is unrealistic, you might feel demotivated when you do not achieve it.
Always set short term goals to achieve your ultimate goal. That is to divide your work in small parts and then try to achieve it. The logic is that the duration of the whole exercise can be very long and you need to be satisfied in small lengths of time, therefore it is better that you set short term goals and achieve it and feel motivated.
Prepare your mind for small failures. It may happen that you lose sometimes; you may not be able to achieve your full fledged goals. You have to encourage yourself during these times saying that the failures are just normal and it is bound to happen.
Be Persistent: Persistence is the key. You need to persist in any activity to be successful. It goes with body building as well. Persistence will bear sweet fruits later on.
