A goal can be anything from deciding to lose weight, get fitter, improve a relationship, get a better job - or A job, start a business, buy a house.
Any number of things.
The reasons why ppl don't achieve their goals is that they go about it in the wrong way.
What do I mean by that?
Well, there are 5 steps which must be followed in order to give any goal the best possible chance of being achieved.
How much weight do you want to lose?
how much salary do you wish to earn?
how much deposit do you need to save for that house?
Become crystal clear about what it is you want to achieve, write it down and absolutely know and believe that you can and will do what it takes to achieve it.
For example; Don't say I'll lose 20 pounds in a week or I'll save 30 grand in a year if your salary is only 35k a year.
It must be realistic and achievable.
Challenge yourself by all means - but don't be too ott.
Most goals large and small can be broken down into 5 steps.
For example: Lose 7 pounds in 2 weeks or 3 weeks your 5 steps might be to:
Ask yourself - whose help will I need to achieve this goal?
For example - If you're Saving money for a house you may need to stop buying birthday presents or eating out.
Most ppl will be incredibly supportive if you just take the time to explain why this means so much to you.
What are the benefits for you and how will your life change in a more positive way?
In the losing weight example these things could be:
To have more energy,
to feel better about yourself,
to fit into different clothes
or to buy new ones etc etc
Pin this list up everywhere you will see it during the day,
on your desktop computer, bathroom mirror etc
Read this list aloud several times per day whilst you
visualise yourself having achieved this goal as you are reading.
Follow these 5 steps and start achieving your goals in life.
