Setting goal is important but you want to make sure you get results you want. When you achieve results on a constant basis, it becomes very exciting and motivational.
Seeing results of the progress you’ve made will actually push you to do more progress. On the other hand, it can be discouraging when you set too high and don’t achieve it.
Some people have a big goal but fail to achieve it… why?
- They’re scared of their big goal
- They feel like they don’t have enough skills to achieve it
- They feel overwhelmed
- They don’t know where to start
Here, I will share to you how to set goals and achieve them:
Create A Vision
A vision is the foundation of your success and achievement. Creating a vision will help you set clear goals and build your confidence.
So how do you create a vision/set a goal?
Create a vision that is as vibrant and clear in your mind as possible using the SMART GOAL method. Make your goal: Specific,Measurable,Attainable,Realistic and Time Sensitive. Set goals for things that you feel you must accomplish. Write them down or create a vision board or map it out.
The stronger the desire, the more likely you’ll achieve your goals.
Once you’ve set your goal/vision, your goals will become more meaningful and more motivational to you.
Break It Into Bite-sized Goals
Seeing the big picture or main goal can be overwhelming and the secret to achieving your goal is to break it into smaller bite-sized steps or mini goals that will gradually get you to where you want to be and focus on them.
By creating a series of mini goals along the way, you can also feel a sense of achievement that will keep you motivated to work harder to your main goal.
A goal cannot be achieved if you just write them on paper and not doing it, so you must GET UP AND TAKE ACTION!
Taking action is simply the act of deciding what the next step is to accomplish something. Ask yourself: what’s the next step? When will it be done?
Share Your Goals
Sharing your goals can help you avoid procrastination. It helps move your goal out of mind and into the spotlight and often, when you tell others, you will also see them get on your side and look for ways to help you. You will establish accountability,guidance and follow-up from a trustworthy person.
Having a coach,mentor or an accountability group/partner is best to share your goals with.
Ask yourself: Who can I share my vision with? Who do I want to be accountable to? Contact this person and share your goals.
Celebrate Your Success
Don’t forget to celebrate every little successes you’ve made toward achieving your goal. Every time you recognize your success, you’ll find it easier to follow through in the future because of the evidence you’ve built of past success.
Record your success.Share your success.Celebrate!
Review Your Process
Do the whole steps over and over again. Occasionally check in and see how well you’re progressing. By reviewing your process and going back through the steps, you’ll make small advances toward accomplishing your goal. And by doing this consistently, the odds are great that you’ll find yourself at exactly the point you intended to be, or even past it.
Be patient with this process and be patient with yourself. Impatient is the enemy of success.
The best way to give your mind more reasons to succeed than to fail is to record and celebrate moments of success.
