Setting your goals can sometimes be challenging and intimidating. Most of us want to take advantage of a new year to better ourselves, grow and achieve your goals. It’s so easy to set your goals but it’s another thing to achieve your goals. We need more action than just saying your goals to yourself, you need a plan to actually achieve those goals.
You have to picture your goal already being accomplished, picture it in your mind and feel it. There’s something about taking the time to really feel it and picture it that really makes you feel like you can do it. I always think. to myself, if I can feel what this will feel like, I can totally accomplish it too.
There’s a difference between picturing it and believe it. Believing it means that you’re no longer worried about what people think, what they’ll say, or anything else that keeps you from achieving your goals. You believe it with every fibre of your being that nothing will stand in your way. Believe it like you’re already there.
It’s been said that if you write something down it’s more likely to happen. Writing down your goals solidifies it in a way, holds you a bit more accountable for that goal. It almost makes it feel real. You’ve thought about it, visualized it, believed it. You’ve probably thought about a path you’ll take to get there and now you’re ready to take some action and write it down.
Break it Down
You need a plan. Remember, your plan will most likely change. Things will come up, goals will shift, obstacles will show up, and you’ll get a lot of no’s along your way. That’s ok. Still, I highly recommend a plan. Think of it as a guide. Break your goal down into smaller pieces.
Once you hit a small goal, a small step forward. Celebrate it. Even the smallest of steps deserves recognition from you and gratitude. It’s all these small steps that will get you where you want to go. Nothing is done in one big leap and nothing is achieved without a million other small steps being taken first.
