What is Goal Setting, Really?

What is Goal Setting, Really? 

Today is the day that people around the world start declaring what they want for the next year. So what are some ways that you can set goals and actually achieve them in 2015? We put our heads together and came up with a few steps to get you started!

Step One – State Your Goals

For some people this means creating a vision board. Other people make lists of what they want. There are many ways to state your goals. What way do you learn best? If you are a visual learner, perhaps try a vision board. If you are an auditory learner, listening to your goals can help. Find the way that works for you. 

Try writing down 3 major goals for the day that you want to get done, and then review them before you go to bed. 

Step Two – Set a Deadline for Your Goals

Did you know one of the best ways to NOT achieve your goals is to leave the goal date open-ended? That is why 90 day challenges work for many people! When you give yourself a solid date by which to achieve a goal, you are much more likely to complete it. 

When you are writing down your goals, jot down a date…in pen. Stick to it!

Step Three – Write Down How It Will Feel to Achieve the Goal

You know how great it feels to lose 10 lbs. What about 20…30…40? How will it feel then? Identifying the feeling that you experience when you achieve a goal is a very powerful way to make sure it will happen. After you achieve a goal, write about how it felt and whether it is the same or different than you anticipated. You will be amazed at what you learn!

These are just a few steps to get started. We would love to hear your comments…what has worked for you?
