How do you set your goals?
Do you write them down? Say them out loud? Or just think about them in your head?
There’s no right or wrong answer to this — but there is a thing that I’m looking for and that’s staying committed to my goals.
So, how do you do that?
I’d like to think that you kind of have to become obsessed with your goals. What I mean by that is you literally have to live, breathe and think about your goals. I’ve taken classes on goal setting and I’m still struggling to this day on staying committed. But if I’m honest, what I’ve noticed is that if I don’t stay committed I get further away from my goals. Real talk. So I’m trying a few things right now to help me keep and stay on track. A few were suggested by my mentor and others are what I’ve seen or heard from very successful people.. So here they are:
- Work on your goals ever. single. day.
- Write them down, take five minutes to read them and let it marinate.
- Chip off a little bit at a time. You won’t be able to accomplish every single thing on your goal list — but if you break it up into pieces.. it works.
- Lastly, set yourself little reminders. I like using Google Calendar and having little alerts pop up on my phone. I also like post it notes.. I saw a friend use it for weight loss goals and I’ve seen the progress.
Now this doesn’t come easy to everybody but nothing worth having ever does.
With that being said, go after your goals and don’t let it get you down. If you really want what your setting in your goals you’ll get it because you’ll put in the work and you’ll do it.
