Perfecting your goals

Goals are meant to inspire us, but instead they throw us off balance. A positive lifestyle helps us lead a more positive life, with a more positive outcome on what we want to achieve on some of those goals.

To achieve our goals, we must also incorporate a positive mind-set. For example, if we decide to start going to the gym, we need to change the way we see and eat food. There would be no point going to the gym, to eat more of the wrong types of food, to put the weight back on.

How do we achieve our goals?

  • Try writing out your goals and periodically check back on your progress to see how far you’ve got. Keep yourself motivated throughout the process. Keep evaluating;
  • Start your goals at a time when not much is going on in your life;
  • Be sensible about the type of goal you’re trying to achieve. If the goal you’re trying to achieve is totally out of your depth, fine-tune your goal so that your goal becomes more achievable;
  • Don’t be lead into a goal someone else thinks you can achieve. Make sure the goal you want to achieve is also something you want for yourself;
  • The more effort you put in the more successful you will be. Your goals should always be based on your long-term wants. A whirlwind decision doesn’t always show long-term commitment and may not produce the results you want;
  • Finally, always celebrate your successes along the way. Celebrating will give you more reason to continue.

 

Sadly, a lot of us fail to achieve anywhere near our goals because we lack the motivation and give in too easily.  Goals tend to be like new year resolutions, we may succeed at some but not all, or may give up altogether.

With the right mental attitude and confidence, you will have more reason to reach your goal.

  1. Setting goals don’t work for me. I get ill with them and don’t finish them. I’m better off not even messing with them. I just don’t have time to do them either.

    I may be lazy when goals are set. I may try again. I did complete the quit smoking one so far!

    1. You have proved otherwise Lisa! You have already quit your no smoking goal. I believe you can, now you must believe!
