Goals are milestone markers. Your goals and objectives should always be achievable and believable! Now that doesn’t’ mean you stop dreaming of the bigger life you are wanting. This means that you must set goals that you can experience the results in a short amount of time.
Goal setting is easy to do and easy not to do! This is what separates everything from becoming to not happening.
There are 3 main components to setting goals for yourself.
#1: Your Desire, Need or Want
This should be the easiest but really it is the hardest. Your Desire, want or need must be big enough for you to take action on. Having small goals is great but that is not putting any fire under your butt to move towards your goal. You want a goal that gets you out of bed, not because you have to empty your bladder. Your goal should give you a feeling of awesomeness. You have to feel it, see yourself in it, smell it, envision it.
#2: Time frame you want this by
How bad do You want it... You do need to use your common sense setting a time frame on your goal. For an example: If you are wanting to lose weight, don't expect to loose 30 lbs in the next 10 days..you have to think about your health and happiness at all times! So common sense is vital!
#3: Steps you need to take to reach your goal
Reverse engineer your goal. Plan your goal backwards. Huh? Yes backwards! Start from the finish..Picture yourself having already achieving your goal. Think how you got there. What steps did you have to do in order to achieve your goal. Write these steps down.
The steps that you have written down are your daily or NOW goals. It has been proven that daily consistent action towards your goal is what gets you there, no matter how big of a goal you set for yourself.
