Why it’s important to set meaningful goals and stick to them?
You want to always be clear about your goals, writing them down and making them part of your daily routine. This will help you achieve faster results. In order to sustain momentum and accomplishments, your goals must be in alignment with your values, your passions and what you really want.
I have achieved most of my goals since I was a kid with no help from anyone. This proves that anyone can start from scratch with no cash, no resources, and still accomplish almost anything.
After a point in your life of getting so much you feel compelled as a person to give back, to help others, and to make the world better. If you don’t have those feelings, don’t worry! They normally come later in life after your personal stuff is settled some.
For now just focus on how to find your confidence to crush goals and get wins.
Here are a few important goals settings tips:
1. Write down your goals. The act of focusing your mind around the things that are most important to you and writing (or typing) it makes all the difference. It sends a clear message to your subconscious mind and let it work for you behind the scenes. When you write down your dreams and goals, they become much more than just ideas. They start to materialize.
2. Be sure to remind yourself of your goals several times a day. Spend some quality time reflecting on the goals in all areas of your life. Consider where you want to be in three months, one year and three years’ time. This process will create an amazing force of focus that will attract more ideas, solutions and results.
3. Review everything. Double check and review everything that you’ve already achieved in your life and remind yourself that you are fully capable of achieving what you want when you put your mind to it.
4. For every goal on your list ask yourself:
- Why do I want to achieve this goal so much? Why is it so important to me?
- What will I gain from achieving this goal?
- What am I missing now that this goal will provide?
- Who else will benefit from me achieving this goal?
- What price am I willing to pay for going after this goal?
- How will I know when I accomplish my goal? How will I measure success?
- Do you truly believe that you can accomplish this goal? You should not know how yet but do you believe you CAN?
- Can you identify an interim goal that you certainly believe you can achieve?
- Who will I have to be/become to achieve this goal?
- What’s holding me back or what may stop me in the future?
5. Also when defining your goals be sure to:
- Make your goals personal and describe them in present tense.
- Phrase your goals positively. State what you want, not what you don’t want.
- Make sure your goals are yours, and yours alone.
- Commit yourself to the pursuit of your goals.
- Share them with your family, close friends or support team.
- Review and visualize daily; see it, hear it, feel it.
- Take action and make progress daily.
- Review your plan and adjust occasionally.
It’s also good to have goals with different time frames. For me I have today goals, to be done soon goals, one year and long term. This keeps things focused on all levels and out of my subconscious.
