Goal Setting Tips
1. Set Attainable Goals
Accomplishing goals and learning the power of believing in yourself is a heck of a lot easier if you already have reached a few personal goals. For example, if you’re new to running, running a marathon the second you get your running shoes might be a tad overambitious. But having a goal to run a smaller amount of miles each day can help you ultimately reach that grander goal of running a marathon in the future. Accomplishing small goals is the key to having faith in yourself because they enable you to have a track record of success you can reflect back on for inspiration and give you the confidence you need to take on bigger goals. Rather than trying and failing at one of your major goals, set some realistic goals which will make accomplishing your grander goals easier. As you rack up successes, you'll be amazed to see how you change. All of these small goal successes build on one another and can create a whole new self perception. Accomplishing small goals can put you into the right headspace to embody the sentiment "believe you can and you will".
2. Set Specific Goals
Setting specific goals is important because they negate your ability to self-sabotage by being too easy or too hard on yourself. When you set specific goals, there is no room to be extra hard on yourself and importantly no room to negotiate with yourself either. For example, this specific fitness goal "do 30 sit ups, push ups, and pull ups" is better than the more vague goal of "work out". This vagueness can lead to reverse “planking” on the couch (otherwise known as “lying down”) or setting yourself up for an indefinite cycle of push ups. When you resolve to just "work out" you're liable to be either too easy or too hard on yourself, so setting up a specific goal can be much more beneficial.
3. Set Daily Goals, Weekly Goals, Monthly Goals, and Yearly Goals
Setting daily goals, weekly goals, monthly goals, and yearly goals will help structure your life in such a way that success becomes something you’re always working towards. Similar to setting attainable goals, achieving daily goals makes accomplishing the weekly, monthly, and yearly goals all easier. For example, going for a jog three times a week is a lot easier when you've been doing 100 jumping jacks a day. Don't let anything stop you from learning to believe in yourself and you will be unstoppable. Do you have an Alexa, Google Home, Siri, or Google Assistant? Set a reminder to do 20 sit ups once an hour between the hours of 8AM and 8PM, and it’ll almost start to feel like a part of your daily routine.
4. Set a Meditation Goal
Do you have a spiritual goal? When you set a meditation goal you have more time to find inner peace or hone your spiritual craft. Meditation is great for everything from relieving stress to improving concentration so do your chakras a favor and consider doing it once a day for a few minutes.
Now that you have these tips and structure, go ahead and put it all out there. You’ll be surprised at how much you can achieve with consistency and a little bit of patience!
