How to Set Goals
How can you achieve goals if you have not set them yet? You have to have goals before you can set them. With a few guidelines you will be able to achieve your goals, or even better beyond what you’re shooting for.
- 1. Think About What you Want: Set your mind to exactly where you are and where you want to be. With this in mind you can start small with day- to- day and work your way up to yearly goals. Think about what you can achieve if you take the time to really analyze what you want your future to hold. There is no doubt that your future goals will give you the motivation you need to make your goals possible.
- 2. Write Everything Down: When goals are written down you are more likely to achieve them. Whether it be your goals for the week, month, year, or even the next few years, it is much more affective to have them in front of you. It is the control of your subconscious mind taking the written information and turning it into reality. Avoid words such as, “maybe, or “might”, because they leave the possibility of not being able to achieve your goal. For example, instead of saying “I might make it to my spin class after work today,” you should say “ I will make it to my spin class after work today.” Telling yourself you are going to do something is much different than saying you might do something.
- 3. Set REAL Goals: The whole point to setting goals is to eventually achieve them. Which is why it is so important to make your goals specific and measurable. For example saying “I will lose 100lbs by next Wednesday,” that is measurable but not even close to be realistic. If you are in the sales business a specific, measurable goal would be, “I will exceed my quota this month by 5%.” That gives a measurable amount of time and specific amount that you want to exceed. If you set real goals you are more likely to achieve those goals.
- 4. Do Not Give Up: Stick with the goals you set. If you keep striving towards what were originally trying to achieve, you will be sure to get where you want. There will always be set backs, but analyzing your set back and moving past it, you can continue the process of achieving your goal (s).
