Don't Set Goals, GET Goals - A Simple 4-Step Process to Get Any Goal - Guaranteed!
I love the idea of setting new goals... new income goals, new goals for relationships, new fitness goals, weigh loss goals, etc. I always feel really good when I've cleared the slate and determined a new achievement I want for myself. We all do, right?
Many people stop right at the beginning... they set a goal and then HOPE that they can get their goals. What if we could take the HOPE right out of the picture and KNOW that we can get to our goals? We can!
4 Steps to GET Your Goals
Step One - Identify what your goals are. This sounds really simple, but most people don't even know what they want. There are a TON of really great goal-setting programs all over the web. Pick one, and spend some time developing your goals. Then write your goals down. There is real power and magic in writing your goals down. Don't believe me? Google "Harvard Goal Writing Study" and see for yourself.
Step Two Be present, all the time, with your goal. Be aware of what you are looking to achieve.
Step Three EVERYTIME you are faced with a decision, ask yourself, "Is the result of this decision going to take me closer, or further away, from my goal?" Let me repeat that
"IS THE RESULT OF THIS DECISION GOING TO TAKE ME CLOSER, OR FURTHER AWAY, FROM MY GOAL?"
Step Four Never leave a decision un-acted upon. This is truly important. You must take the required action to get any goal. This can be the most difficult step. If your goal is to lose weight and you are presented with a choice between a beautiful vintage red wine and water, it can be extraordinary difficult to choose to drink water. However, if you continue to make goal-oriented choices, you will reach your goals!
Go and GET YOUR GOALS!
