Goals Equal Better Results

Studies show that having goals results in more Happiness and Bigger Achievements. So, let’s hash out some goals so we get to where we want to go.  Seems easy enough, right?

You need to start with the Big Picture.  What is it that you ultimately want.  Like, I want to be fit & healthy.  I want to lose 40 lbs.  I want to have 18% body fat.  I want to be debt free.  I want to get off my cholesterol and blood pressure meds.  I want to halt my diabetes.  You need to sit down and see what is your big time goal.  We’re talking end game here. Once you see that ultimate goal clearly, we can get started.

First, you need to imagine how you will feel when you accomplish this goal.  This is a Wayne Dyer trick that I really like. We are talking how you feel on the inside.  I’m not saying what you look like in the mirror or how much money you have in the bank…but how you feel in that moment.  Start conjuring this feeling up everyday and live in it.  It will do wonders for pushing you toward you goal, I promise you!

Next, you need to break down your goal into doable small steps.  Small accomplishments will give you a taste of success that will continue to propel you forward to reach that Big Picture Goal.  Write these out, put stickie notes on your mirror or frig to keep you in the successful mindset.

Before you know it you will be making amazing stides toward achieveing whatever your goal may be.

I’ll remind you that it is in the small steps, the small tweaks that we make that leads to revolutionary change in our life.

Keep up the good work.
