You probably have goals that you hoped to achieve this year, but didn’t. This time of year, it’s natural to lament about goals you seem to have lost. Thankfully, your goals don’t have to remain mere dreams. You can take yourself from a path with unachievable goals to one with attainable targets by just changing your approach.
Once you’ve committed to believing in your abilities, you can start to put things in place to actually attain what you’ve set your mind and heart on. And now is the perfect time to set that game plan.
Use this step-by-step approach to create an effective game plan for success:
Instead of just dreaming about the things you’d like to achieve in the coming year, take the time to sit down, clarify your life vision, set goals and write them on paper. Use the best goal setting planner such as the Success Acceleration Planner to help you achieve your goals in life. Be specific about exactly what you want and how much (make it measurable).
When you start writing, you’ll probably have a long list of goals, including personal goals, career goals, business goals, etc. Arrange your list in the order in which you want to achieve them and then zoom in on the top four or five.
Now that you’ve identified the four or five most pressing goals, plot out attainable sub-targets for each of these goals and give yourself a timeline to achieve each step.
Even if you didn’t reach the targets you wanted, there are undoubtedly things that you did accomplish. Take a few moments to run those accomplishments through your mind and give thanks for them. Feel good about yourself. You’ve most likely achieved far more than many others!
Make some time to read through your list and reaffirm your commitment to achieving these goals in the coming year.
Now that you’ve changed your approach, you can expect to see a much-improved outcome with each goal you’ve set for yourself. Go get ‘em!
