Take a look at these simple tips that’ll show you how to achieve your goals.
Anybody can set a goal, but not everyone can actually follow through and achieve that goal. The goals you set at the beginning of the year, HAVE YOU STARTED CRUSHING THEM?
The reality is that most people are much better at setting goals than they are at actually achieving them.It’s easy to think about all those things you’d like to do someday. You might even go as far as making a list of all the things you’d like do get done this year. But actually getting the job done is harder than jotting things down.
Not to worry we’re not here to amplify the goals you’re yet to achieve. But to help you achieve them. We want you to turn those scribbles into an actual plan that get executed. Here are 3 steps to help you get going;
You Need a Plan
The logistics of goal-setting have been discussed for years.
We all know the basics: Write down the goals, pick an exact date for completion and post them everywhere. But lurking fears or even distractions tend to bully these efforts, sometimes knocking us off track.
To avoid setbacks, focus more on useful, detailed specifics. Make a workable plan. Be willing to be held accountable for that plan. Start with the end in mind and work backwards. Determine what tasks you can specifically focus on that make the most sense. Know what you need to be doing and when you should be doing it. Use systems to stay on track. Create smaller goals on the pathway. Set clear-cut, regular benchmarks and then stop along the way and look at what you’ve accomplished.
You Need Clarity
Though positive emotions can be beneficial components in the pursuit of goals, don’t depend on them for a consistently clear picture. Sometimes they lie! For this journey, it’s clarity that will protect your determination. Think your goals through. Take the time and uncover your full range of expectations.
What exactly do you want to do? State it clearly. Is it realistic and attainable with some stretching? What are the obstacles? How would those obstacles block you from your goal and what will you need to do to overcome that? What support will you need? Why will accomplishing this goal matter? What is your motivation? Why do you want to do it? What impact will it have on your life and what will happen if you don’t do it? What does success look like?
A vivid understanding of your goal will help foster a calm certainty to both get you started and keep you going.
Never Give Up
It’s hard work to keep our minds in a growth zone when we mess up and insecurities and doubts start to fly about. But the goals we eventually realize often come through both hard work and failure. Grow through those failures. Acknowledge what happened and dissect anything that can be gleaned from it. What went well and what didn’t? What needs to be done differently?
Keep being consistent and determined to achieve your goal and in the midst of obstacles never give up – instead re-strategize. We hope this helps – now go and get it!
