Here are 5 ways to make your goals come true…
Many of us shy away from writing out the goals that will make our future bigger, bolder and brighter. It is as if we’re afraid to live the life of our dreams. Here are five simple steps that will take your dreams and turn them into achievable goals.
Make a commitment to following these five easy steps and before you know it, you’ll be living the life you’ve always wanted.
1. Write Out Exactly What You Want – the more detail the better.
It’s hard to achieve a bigger, bolder and brighter future if you’re not sure what that future looks and feels like. Instead of thinking and talking in generalities, be specific about what you want your life to be like in six months, one year, or five years. The more detail you can put into your plan, the clearer your goal will become.
2. Write Out Exactly Why You Want It – the more emotion the better.
It’s often said that if your “why” is big enough, nothing will stop you from making your goal reality. A “why” comes from your emotions – it is comes from your heart. The more connection you have to your heart’s desire, the stronger the “why.” The stronger your why, the less likely you’ll give up before making your goal a reality.
3. Write Out Exactly How You’re Going To Get What You Want – the more steps the better.
Now comes the plan. This is the practical side of goal setting – this is how you’re going to make your bigger, bolder and brighter dream come to life. Start at the beginning with the first step. What do you need to do first, second, third, etc. Break each step into bite-sized pieces. Break these bite-sized pieces into daily and weekly tasks or chores. It is easier to achieve a goal when it is broken down into small achievable pieces.
4. Write Out Exactly The Payoff For Achieving Your Goals – the more exciting the better.
You’ve written your “why” for making your goal reality. Now, make your goal come to life in your heart and mind. Make the time to dream the way a child would dream about the future. How does it feel to be living out your goal? What sounds do you hear or smells do you smell? What does it look like to be living your goal? Write or record exactly what your life is like once your goal is reality. Allow your excitement and happiness to shine through.
5. Write Out Exactly Why You Deserve To Live Your Goal – the more rewarding the better.
We often stop ourselves from achieving our goals because somewhere in our mind we’re not feeling worthy and deserving of living the life of our dreams. Write out in a paragraph or two about all the reasons you deserve to be living a bigger, bolder, brighter life. If any negative feelings emerge, it is better to deal with them now and not allow them to sabotage your dreams. Acknowledge the negativity, decide how to deal with it and then choose to go forward in positive and productive ways.
So, what do you think? Isn’t this an easy way to make your goals come true?
I didn’t say it wouldn’t take work, but the work doesn’t have to be difficult. Go for your bigger, bolder and brighter future – I believe in you!
