Everybody wants to improve their life in some way as fast as possible. However, most people have failed to realize that real improvement doesn’t stem from shifting of mindset. Rather, it has to do with overcoming obstacles or challenges that stand as stumbling blocks to such goals. It is impossible solving a goal through the use of the same method you have been adopting in the past. If you want to get better results, you will need a new strategy. Due to this, you will need to adopt new strategies and test them until they are perfect. There will be improvements through perseverance.
I was very limited in terms of developing personally. All of this changed when I decided to find a life coach who helped me get disciplined in the area of setting goals. Without climbing these mountains and overcoming obstacles, there was no way I would have been able to grow much stronger and fitter. If you plan adequately, you will be well – equipped in the process of navigating through the rocky terrains.
What I do at the moment is setting one day aside each month. This will be used to plan for the rest days of the respective months. At the start of the week, I set out hours to plan ahead for that week. Before I begin the day’s tasks, I take out 10 minutes to plan how activities will be executed. Through this strategy, I became goal – oriented and also forward – thinking. Through this strategy, I have been able to achieve a lot within the past 12 months. This was far more than what I have managed to achieve in my whole life.
Through written goals, I have been able to achieve a lot such as being published in various magazines, gaining coaching clients and breaking financial barriers. If you want to become your own coach, the secret is in being a committed and dedicated goal – setter.
For a start, the following questions should be reflected on
What are your expectations about your career?
What are your expectations about your relationships?
How much weight are you expecting to lose?
How flexible and strong do you actually want to become?
What are the amazing things that you would want to experience or see in life?
What are your spiritual goals in life?
Once of these answers have been figured out, the dreams should be broken down into steps that are realistic. They should be something that you can do each day, week and month. You will definitely not become an expert initially. However, as time goes on, you will become very good at having to set goals that will help you achieve better things.
Identify what needs to be done this month that will take you one step further towards achieving your goals. Then find out what should be done this week. Now create a list of activities that will be carried out this week. The steps should be realistic for you.
This is a simple and straightforward step. Once you can be 100% committed towards working on this plan, you will definitely achieve your aims and objectives within 12 months.
