Simple Tips for Setting Goals

Know your Why

The reason you want to achieve a goal is your "why." It's great to have a goal, but it's even better to understand why you want to achieve that goal. If you can identify a few good reasons or great side effects of achieving this goal, these reasons will help you stay committed to the goal when things get tough. The most important step in setting attainable goals is to have a STRONG WHY.

Visualize your goals

As we visualize our goal, our subconscious mind, sets things in motion, bringing our vision to life.
There are several ways you can visualize: Create a vision board Our dreams, goals, and ideal life are represented by vision boards. Because our minds respond strongly to visual stimulation, we can actually strengthen and stimulate our emotions by representing our goals with pictures and images. Keep your vision board in a place where you can see it every day.

When you're alone and have time to meditate, visualize your goal as if you've already achieved it. Do your best to fantasize about your goals and see how they all fit together in the big picture of your life.

Create your Action Plan “Goal Action Plan” consists of action steps that you need to take to reach your goal

  • Start by listing the steps to achieve your goal.
  • Break down the goal action plan into manageable small steps.
  • Starting with one of your goals allows you to narrow your focus enough to achieve it.
  • It is preferable, to begin with, one goal and complete it than begin with five and fail to complete any of them.

Determine a Timeframe

Set a specific deadline for when you want that goal to be completed. It is essential that your goals be time-bound because it will help you stay on track as you complete them. If you don't set a timeline for your goals, you'll feel as if you have the rest of your life to accomplish them. Make the deadline based on all the factors required for completion, so you don't lose faith and give up.

Review Your Goals

  • Once you've set your goals and begun working toward them, you'll have to make sure you're reviewing them on a regular basis.
  • If there are any goals that are no longer relevant or appealing to you, remove them from the list.
  • When you have multiple goals, assign a priority to each one. This keeps you from becoming overwhelmed by having too many goals and helps you focus on the most important ones.
  • You can schedule this review weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or bi-monthly, but a quick review will help you stay focused on your goal and track your progress.
  • Address the Concerns and possible obstacles to each goal
  • Make a list of potential limiting beliefs and obstacles for each of your goals. Address them with positive affirmations and solutions. Most fears will vanish as we confront them. Others we'll keep with us. That's fine. Simply keep going. Regardless of your fears, keep moving forward.

Take action right now, even if it is a small step. Then, assign yourself another small task to complete before the end of the next day. You can achieve your goals by taking small, manageable baby steps.
