Setting goals is pivotal, but achieving them is even more. The effective way to getting to your goals must be learnt, practiced and mastered. Here are 5 amazing tips to precisely do that. Read ON!
We all have goals in life, and not all goals are alike. Your goals depend on what you feel your purpose is, what you enjoy doing, the things you can do to help yourself personally, professionally, emotionally, and in other aspects of life. Goal setting can be for anything you feel compelled to do and achieve. Achieving them can also be accomplished, but that definitely takes a little bit of hard work.
Here are five fool proof ways to achieve your goals:
This is the part not many people want to talk about. We all have setbacks from time to time. It happens. If you recognize that setbacks may happen before they do, then they won’t seem so disappointing. If you have a setback of some sort while you are in the process of reaching an objective, just take a deep breath, and revisit your milestone list. Restructure your milestones in order to account for your obstacle, and take it for what it is: an obstacle. Obstacles are meant to be overcome! Anthony Robbins once said "Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach."
First, make a list of the things you want to do. This may take time to really think about these goals you wish to achieve, because you want to be sure they are not too lofty.
Now, for the fun part, which is to create a vision board that you can display somewhere in your home. This way it is a reminder and a motivator, and may help you stay on track.
To create a vision board, simply take a poster board or similar item, and find pictures (usually from magazines) of what you wish to attain. Another option is to use an online method to “cut and paste” pictures on a document. Keeping this as your desktop image will be the perfect motivator!
One Step at a Time
Some goals take time, and require several different milestones to reach them. That’s okay, because for each goal, each milestone you meet is one step closer to achieving it! In order to make your each milestone clear, you may want to use a calendar or simply make a list. What a wonderful feeling it is to achieve each milestone, and each milestone you meet motivates you to move forward. Slow and steady wins the race in reaching a goal, and once you succeed the reward is a feeling of pure confidence and satisfaction.
Sometimes (okay, often times) in order to reach each step of your goal, sacrifices need to be made. If your long term goal is to build that new addition on your home, then you may have to skip the morning latte on your commute. If your long term goal is to get that master’s degree, then you may have to pass on a movie night in order to study. It is challenging, but if you really want something, then giving up little things along the way will not be extremely difficult. Inspirational Speaker Sujit Lalwani says "You have to take action according to what your goals demand and make happen the sacrifice that's needed on the journey to getting them. There's no option!"
Letting close friends and family know of your vision can help in more ways than one. For starters, these people care for you, and are in your life for a reason. Their support can mean a lot, especially when you find yourself getting down and questioning yourself about whether you can reach it or not. Close friends and family may also offer to help you along the way, either financially or in other ways.
