Goal Setting Tip 3: Visualise your goals
Can you close your eyes and visualize yourself talking to clients, making them excited about how your services can make a difference in their life?
If you can visualise it, so can your subconscious mind.
Make a point of spending time each day, preferably in the morning (just after you woke up) and at night (just before you go to bed) to close your eyes and visualize yourself actually achieving your most important goals.
Try to create a vision that makes you feel motivated, passionate and enthusiastic. Remember the more senses (sight, sound, smell, taste, etc.) you can involve, the more real your visualization becomes.
Don’t neglect this method. The visualization of your goals keeps your motivation up and stimulates your desire to reach your goals.
Goal Setting Tip 4: Take action
Make a daily to-do list and write the actions for the day down to ensure you don’t miss anything. Knowing on a daily basis what needs to be done is crucial to bring you closer to your end goal.
Scan your brainstorming list for short term goals that can result in quick wins. Any goal that you reach within its set time period will motivate you to keep going.
Get out your calendar for the next 12 months & time-frame those actions for the whole year.
Don’t procrastinate on goals that you don’t like. Remember your goals are things that you want to do and not things that you have to do.
Goal Setting Tip 5: Review, Re-evaluate, Rewrite
Re-evaluate and rewrite your main goals frequently – preferably every three to six months. The revision of your goals will help you analyze them more thoroughly.
All things in life change. You may find that goals from a few months ago are not exactly what you want now.
Be flexible and have the courage to change your goals. Changing your goals doesn’t mean you are a failure, it is in actual fact a victory as you have realized in time that some different action is needed to pursue your dream.
These 5 goal setting tips are actually a bunch of do-able steps.
And the secret is…
Anybody can do it!
Setting and achieving goals should not mean hard work – it should mean enjoying yourself as you reach your dream. Getting what you really want should create enthusiasm and energy, not resistance and negativity.
The main point here is that setting and achieving your goals should be empowering, it should make you feel good about yourself and your life.
