The three keys to living without limits have always been the same. You must be clear, competent, and able to focus on your goal. One of the best ways to live with no limits is to set goals. You need to learn how to set goals. Learn why setting goals is a necessity. Here are 7 simple steps to set goals.
Be positive when you state your goals
People often set a goal in terms of what they don’t want! “I don’t want to smoke, to be angry…” It’s “what I want to do or want to be” See the difference? Hear the nuance? Are you ready to state positively every goal you want to achieve?
Own your goals. Success is independent from external factors. You are entirely responsible for the success of your goal.
Visualize in detail
This will help you achieve clarity. The clearer your mental picture is, the easier it will be to build up the inner drive to work toward your goal. You should paint a mental image of having already achieved your goal. Make a very clear image, in rich details, and you will be so enthusiastic that you will automatically attract the solution.
Analyze your goal
“When will I achieve my goal?” The answer is different for every goal. Try to determine the answer depending on your individual goal.
Make sure your goal is aligned
You certainly don’t want to slip when it comes to balance. When you run this ‘Quality Control Check”, you play a win-win strategy. Everything must flow together. Knowing that everything is aligned will give you extra peace of mind. Step back and look at all areas of your life. Are you willing to make certain sacrifices for your goal?
How much will pursuing your goal cost you?
Everything we do requires some sort of sacrifice. There is always some kind of sacrifice to make when you set a worthy goal. This step will help you assess what your goal entails, and what you need to commit.
State the value and the consistency of the goal
Why am I so determined to reach this goal? Why do I find it so essential? Is this goal in harmony with my vision, beliefs and values? Answer these questions. If you hesitate, your goal might need to be modified. Create a goal that’s in tune with your passions, vision and needs.
If you follow these steps to set your goals, two things can occur. First, you are in total harmony with your vision, belief and value systems because your entire “You” agrees and offers no resistance. This is also a way to program yourself for success. You will wire yourself, both physically and psychologically to attain your goal. You’re totally focused.
