How to Reach Your Goals
Apr 14,2016

 

How many times do you find yourself setting a goal, but within weeks, you've either become too busy to reach it, or it's moved down to the bottom of you priority list? If you're tired of feeling that your goals aren't being met, it means that you haven't been setting your goals correctly. We can help you reach your goals with a few simple tips.

 

First, you want to decide on the outcome and why you want to reach it. Simply defining the goal does not help to motivate you to get it done. Once you establish the "why," it's easier to establish the "how." How would it feel to actually reach your goal? Visualize it. Make it a reality before it's even happened. You will spend less time worrying about how to get there once you have the actual motivation to reach said goal by putting yourself in the moment.

 

Set a timeline, with steps, on what you can do next. This cuts down on procrastination, which essentially kills goals that have been set. It's also very important to have another person hold you accountable. It's much easier to convince ourselves out of something. When someone else joins in this goal, it makes it harder to back out.
