Are Your Your Goals Right for You
Write down your goals, read them. When you write down your goals, you have a physical reference of what you want to achieve. Now begin to process your goals and reflect how much these goals mean to you. Are your goals are right for you? What do you really want from life? If you set objectives that run counter to your values it is unlikely that you will complete any of your goals. Make sure your goals are concise. Vague goals have no structure. Moreover undefined goals can’t be monitored. You have to be your own cheerleader. I have been in your shoes. Not taking action, means you won’t achieve your goal. If you start taking steps, you will grow. If setbacks come you way, learn from them. Always keeping striving towards your goal. Going after any goal, is personal to you. You are in the driver’s seat.
It’s easy to become invested in other people’s goals. You can unwittingly lose your nerve and use other people’s aspirations as a distraction. Don’t let this happen to you. Bear in mind, your path in life is different from someone else’s. When you write your goals, it helps you stay on the right path. Take a step back. Consider, if your chosen goal, is what you want from life. If it is then work to achieve your goal.
Write Down Your Goals On Paper
This might sound a bit obvious but you need to write down your goals. Take charge and train your mind. Writing down your goals creates a visualisation in your mind. Once you visualize something, your brain sees it as more appealing, creating the desire to obtain it.
Practice daily setting goals each day. Case in point, my goal was to devise my “Get It Done Planner.”
I was eager to get started. I needed a planner where I could write down my smaller goals (tasks).
First, I had come up with my design. Then I asked people close to me what they would like to see in the planner. I then, had to find the title of my book. So these are parts of my ultimate goal broken down. Breaking the goals, connected developing my planner, made the whole process doable.
Once I completed each task, I would move on to the next task. Needless to say, I am proud of who the planner came out. Why not use this planner as a template to write down your tasks/goals.
Your goals may change as your life progresses. Always refer to the goals which you have written down. When you have achieved your ultimate goal, you will have something to refer back to. This signals that you are more in tune with your overall purpose. Your are learning daily and raising your personal bar. Change allows you to fine tune your brain, to know what you want. Sometimes your goals can influence your interests. Remember always make the time to write down your goals. As you begin to achieve your goals you will become more empowered and confident. Lastly always remember you are worthy.
