It's no secret how much I LOVE goals and over the years I have developed some tips and tricks that help me make my goals a reality. So, here are my top three secrets to make YOUR goals a reality
Secret 1: Create a clear plan
Get a pen and a piece of paper and write down a plan! It doesn't matter how big or small you think your goal is. It is important that you take the time to get to know your goal, take control of your goal and break it down it manageable pieces.
I always create at least three milestone (or mini-goals) that will show me I am moving closer to my goal (remember, the only way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time). We will get bored if we are working on the same thing for too long - our brains need variety diversity and excitement. Milestones will help you maintain focus and keep motivated.
Do you know what you need to be doing each day to achieve your goal? Success is built off habit so create tasks that will support your goal and do these often.
Secret 2: Take ownership over your goals
Research shows that when we take ownership over something, including our goals, we are more committed to it. Taking ownership over goals means it becomes "ours" thereby becoming part of our identity.
Don't be afraid to talk about your goals either, and dont be afraid of what people might think of you - it is only ever small minds that judge big goals.
Secret 3: Have FUN with what you value
If a goal does not reflect what you value in life you won't fight for it when things get tough and if you don't have fun with your goals that and it doesn't make you happy the goal becomes a form of punishment.
And because I really want to help you...
Secret 4: Get Help
I guess this one isn't much of a secret! We can't be an expert in everything and sometimes we just need an extra pair of eyes to see something we are missing, or an extra set of hands to pick us up if we are struggling.
If you are becoming frustrated by your lack of progress or need to reboot your motivation than I can help! I want to help :-)
