Time to Crush Some Goals

2017 is officially here, and so many have declared this to be there year. It’s one thing to claim it, but if you don’t plan it and take the necessary action steps it will never happen.

When working with my clients, before we start the goal setting process we gain some clarity, because it’s important to set goals that are in alignment with who you are and where you want to go.

Start thinking about your goals for this year. When setting goals they should be SMART- Specific, Measurable, Realistic and Time – Based, it will help you set better goals and they will be the kind of goals that are more likely to achieve.

Learn Something New Every Day

It is important that each day we continue to learn to make ourselves better. Learning should not be a period of your life. Life should be a learning experience. I hope you agree!

Each year you should set personal goals and set out to accomplish them. I challenge you to make a personal development plan if you haven’t already.

Write out a personal development plan and use your thought process to make a plan on how you will get to your destination. If your not sure where to start a mentor or coach might be a great solution. Your probably thinking you don’t need a coach or mentor. I beg to differ, I think you should find good mentors who have been where you were and are where you are trying to go, Tiger Woods has a coach even as great as he is in his career, he has a personal trainer and coach that help him reach and realize his full potential.

Go to seminars once or twice of years with others in your field, you want to be around other people in your field that you can share ideas with. Find someone in your field and study them, the more you know about them the better chance you have to duplicate the system.

You have to realize if you haven’t already that your time is invaluable and should not be wasted by hanging with people who are hindering your growth or wasting their time not growing anywhere. If they are constantly complaining about their past and current life situation let me tell you again that destination disease is contagious.

Also, don’t associate with what I call “haters” those who tell you dreams are impossible, call you a book worm, nerd, etc. the same people when you reach your goals will be calling you boss, CEO of your own business or they have their hands out. Associate with people who empower or inspire you. Your time is invaluable you need a good foundation to build your life on. Just make the most of what time you have.

God will bring the right people in your life at the right time, and He’ll also allow the right people to leave at the right time to bring you to your God given destiny.

What’s your plan for potential growth? It can be very simple such as:

Mediate the first 20 minutes of the day
Listen to a teaching CD on your next 20-minute car drive
Meet up with my mentor twice a month
Turn off the TV 20 minutes earlier tonight to read a book

In the coming days you will have opportunities presented in your life but you have to be prepared. Make a decision to learn something everyday and the right people will come into your life and god will take you places you never dreamed of.

Are You Setting the Right Goals for Yourself?

Are You Setting the Right Goals for Yourself?
There is a lot more to goal setting than just picking a goal and moving forward. While that is important, it’s also important to ensure that you are setting the right goals at the right time so that you can truly be successful. In order to ensure that you are setting the right goals for yourself, answer the following questions:

Are You Setting Specific and Realistic Goals?

It takes a little research to ensure that a goal is realistic. If you’re not sure if something is actually achievable then you’ve not done enough research. Once you’ve set a goal that is indeed realistic, then you need to be specific enough in your description of it so that it’s also easy to take the goal, and work backwards to create a schedule of actions needed to succeed.

Are Your Goals Multifaceted?

Focusing on only one part of your life is a bad idea. People live multifaceted lives and need to make goals for all areas of their lives in order to feel successful. If you have a wonderful business and career but your personal life suffers, then no matter how successful you are, you will not feel successful. Something will always feel as if it’s missing from your life if your goals aren’t inclusive. Therefore, make sure your goals include something from each aspect of your life.

Is Your Scheduling Representative of Real Need?

Once you create the schedule for yourself to reach each goal that you’ve set, you need to truly consider how representative it is of reality. Say your goal is to be healthy and reduce your cholesterol by 10 percent in six months. But, you haven’t set aside the time needed to exercise and eat right. If you don’t schedule in the time needed, you won’t succeed because something will always be in your way taking time away from you. It will be very frustrating to practice your schedule because it doesn’t represent reality.

For instance, if you are going to exercise 30 minutes per day, setting aside only 30 minutes isn’t going to be realistic. You’ll probably need to set aside an hour to account for getting ready as well as cooling down or getting cleaned up to go back to work.

Are You Learning from Failure?

Many times when setting goals and schedules, instead of learning from failure, people give up. Using the example above, once you implement your schedule to reach the goals that you have set, when you notice there are things you’ve forgotten to take into account, don’t give up. Learn from the failure and change the schedule to be more realistic.

You might find that in practice you have to rewrite all your goals and your schedule, but this is perfectly acceptable. Many people believe failure is something negative, but the truth is, if you don’t fail sometimes you’re not going to learn much and it’s likely your goals are too easy.

Do Your Goals Represent Your Needs and Wants or Someone Else’s?

A lot of people set goals that represent what someone else wants instead of what they want. This can really cause a lot of bad feelings and resentment which can derail the best laid plans. As you set your goals for your life, ask yourself if they’re really what you want for yourself or what someone else wants for you. Ask yourself if you’re okay with any goal you make being for someone else before you embark on your journey.

It’s okay to do things because of someone else, but it’s important that you are honest about that and make some goals for yourself too that don’t involve anyone else’s needs or wants.

Are You Checking in Often to Stay on Track?

Schedules are very important to the success of reaching any goal in life. To do lists pale in comparison to a well laid out calendar of tasks and activities that get you from point “A” to point “B”. Ensure that you look at your schedule every morning and every night and note when you succeed on sticking to your schedule and where you don’t. Noticing a pattern of activity can be helpful in fixing a poorly written schedule as well as staying realistic about whether or not you’re sticking to the plan.

Are Your Goals Focused Positively?

When writing a goal it’s important to write them in a positive way, or at least a way that feels positive to you. In the quest to improve your life, try writing down a goal and then changing the words to sound more positive to see if it isn’t more motivating. For instance, “losing weight” seems like a good goal, but for some people it might signify deprivation. So instead, the person might frame the goal as “improving my BMI by 10 points” or “improving my cholesterol by 10 percent.”

Do You Have Too Many Goals Set at One Time?

Just as setting too few goals can be a problem, so can setting too many. Everyone has a personal life and a career life and points in between. If you have set goals in too many areas of life at once, you might tire yourself out and get overwhelmed. Instead pick one personal goal, and one other type of goal to focus on until you reach them, and then you can add more goals as time goes on. You don’t need to do everything today. Slow and steady wins the race is a good motto to hang on to.

Setting the right goals for yourself takes some thought and consideration. Don’t try to set all your goals in one day – instead, set some goals in different stages and in different areas of your life and give a lot of thought to why you’re making the goal in the first place.

Live with Passion,
