A goal acts as a form of a mental contract with yourself and your degree of motivation will drive you to complete that contract. If the goal is too hard to achieve, it can affect your success. The subconscious mind does not distinguish between big or little; it only knows success or failure. If you set a goal to complete four training sessions each week but only complete three, then the mind sees your action as a failure. For this reason, you must set realistic and attainable goals. When you attain each goal, it gives you momentum to increase the level of motivation even further!!
TRY THESE GOAL SETTING TIPS:
- Write down your goals
- Set easy goals often so you create a habit of success in the mind
- Tell friends and family about your goals for motivational support and accountability
- Make any routine fun and exciting to help maintain interest
- Try new challenging goals to stop your normal routine from becoming a chore
- Reward your success when reaching a goal
- Think positively, replace thoughts like “I can’t” with “I CAN” and “I WILL”
- Don’t set goals that are too big, too early
Below, are some good guidelines and thoughts to consider as you are thinking about the goals you want to set for yourself.
►PLACE YOUR EMPHASIS ON NOW AND THE FUTURE
I have come across so many who live their lives while looking in the rear view mirror, rather than looking through the front windshield. Enjoy ‘The NOW’!! Stay in the moment and savor them, plan your future and create what you want to manifest with inspired focus and gratitude for the gifts you were given today.
►FEELING GOOD GETS YOU MORE FEELING GOOD
Feeling bad gets you more of that too. Take care of your health and mindset. Feeling good is a habit, just as feeling bad can be a well-developed habit. You know what you must begin to include and exclude from your life to increase the good feelings you want to have!
►CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE AND PRIORITIES OFTEN CHANGE WITH THEM
Are you certain that the goals you are pursuing today are goals in which you are still committed? Or are they simply something you once thought you should pursue and you’re only hanging onto them in order to ‘be right’? What we want in our 20’s will likely not matter to us in our 40’s and 50’s. So take a little time for reflection.
►PUT YOURSELF IN THE DRIVERS SEAT
Take a closer look at where you say you want to go and where you are actually heading. Are you driving or being driven? Are you a passenger or do you have your hands on the wheel? Are you in possession of a road map or are you wandering and wondering?
►THERE ARE NO ACCIDENTS
Live your life as if every event were a part of a deliberate creation on your part, as determined by the Law of Attraction. Your thoughts create everything that is showing up in your life today. What you dwell on expands and manifests itself into the life you are now living.
Your much loved goals must also be followed up with consistent action toward their achievement. Do not think that affirmations, meditations and daydreaming will get you there if you do not ‘step into the space’ and ‘step up to the plate’ with deliberate actions in the direction you choose. Faith can move mountains, but you’d better bring a shovel.
“Continuous effort — not strength or intelligence – is the key to unlocking our potential.”
