Whether you’re wanting to buy your dream home, get ready to start a family, or be adventurous and climb one of the peaks in the Sudeten mountain range with Wim Hof, setting yourself goals can help you get to where you want to be.
As Tony Robbins says, ‘Without a clear target, you’ll never hit your mark. That’s why it’s crucial to learn how to set goals that are clear, measurable and actionable.’
Many people try to set goals for themselves, but they never reach their target. A common example of this is an 80% failure rate of New Year’s Resolutions by mid-February. It’s understood that their goals weren’t followed with a plan, the determination and motivation to bring their vision to life.
If you don’t have a picture of your goals, you can’t create a plan to get there. To discover your goals is to decide and focus on what is most important to you. Visualise what it would be like to achieve your goals and see how it makes you feel. When emotions attach to potential outcomes, your ‘why’ becomes part of your goals.
‘Focusing on your goals and life purpose gives greater clarity and fulfilment to push through the challenges faced on the road to get there.’
Once you decide on clear goals, it’s most effective to create a detailed plan and timeline for each one. The power of breaking down a goal into small actionable steps is an effective way to work towards a goal. When milestones are put in place, you can know exactly what you need to do each week, month or year.
These steps build your momentum to keep climbing the mountain toward achieving the bigger picture goal. These smaller wins keep you connected, focused and determined to continue moving forward.
Focusing on your goals and life purpose gives greater clarity and fulfillment to push through the challenges faced on the road to get there.
Resetting your sail along the way just comes with the journey towards achieving a goal. Bigger goals may have more turbulent weather than smaller ones. There is no denying the attention goals require to be realised is vital to success.
The true power of setting goals is that we can create our future. If you think big and pursue a goal with maximum effort, you will undoubtedly yield a great result. The big question remains – what do you really want to achieve?
You can accomplish great things if you set your mind to it. There is a higher chance that you will work towards achieving something that lights you up and fuels your inner fire. Your goals are dreams with deadlines – don’t let them fade away.
