As your mind begins coming up with an assortment of new and exciting goals for you to take on, it is extremely important that you take the process a step farther by reducing these goals into written form. Simply stated, you need to get in the healthy habit of writing down the goals you establish for yourself.
If you fail to write down your goals, you will find that they tend to get lost in the hustle and bustle of day to day living. If your goals are out of sight, they are generally out of mind as well. Very few people take the time to write down their goals and not coincidentally, very few people achieve their dreams. Setting and achieving your goals is too important a process to leave to chance or circumstance. You simply must put your goals in writing, period.
Let's take a quick peek at the simple steps involved in converting your mental goals into a written format. Step #1 is to outline your goals in writing. This includes the who, what and where of the goal.
Step #2 is to establish a projected completion date for each of your various goals, pinpointing when you anticipate completing each goal listed.
In step #3, you should outline the benefits you will derive from achieving the goals on your list. The benefits you list should be sensory rich and emotion laden, providing compelling reasons to complete each project as quickly as possible.
Finally, step #4 is repetition. You need to regularly review your list of goals and monitor the daily progress you are making towards achieving them. If you do not repeatedly revisit your goals daily, you risk falling off track and losing your momentum.
There you have it. This four step process allows you to see and then achieve any goal you have set for yourself. There is nothing difficult about this relatively simple process. The hardest part of any goal setting program, just like anything worthwhile you have ever tackled, is the 'getting started' part. You must vow to get started right now - and then commit to sticking with your game plan through thick and thin. The real winners consistently outrun defeat by never stopping; while the would-be winners fall victim to defeat by never starting.
When you faithfully commit to writing down all of your goals, dreams and aspirations and follow this simple four step program without fail, these written goals become your power tools. Your mind will repeatedly reward your persistent effort with one burst of power packed ideas after another after another. Put your power tools to work and build that future you deserve.
The Bottom Line: Get in the healthy habit of outlining your goals in writing write now.
TODAYS MOTIVATIONAL AND INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES:
Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan.
The secret to productive goal setting is in establishing clearly defined goals, writing them down and then focusing on them several times a day with words, pictures and emotions as if we've already achieved them.
Goals give you more than a reason to get up in the morning; they are an incentive to keep you going all day. Goals tend to tap the deeper resources and draw the best out of life.
