Hey, 5 Simple Tips For Setting Successful Goals!

Last Update: January 09, 2018

Hey WA Family

Thanks so much for yr best wishes for my last holiday at Batam, Indonesia. Oh my God, we had such such a wonderful and fun holiday ... If you have a chance, you must go ... haha ... Holiday Inn Resort Batam ... love it ... :)

Okay, here are a few tips on setting goals, it works very well for me ... :)

We all have goals and aspirations, don't we? Sometimes we have difficulty knowing where to start. We want that new body, or want to be healthy and have more energy, but we just do not know what the first step is ...

In addition, the road to our goals is sometimes a rocky one. It is difficult to transgress and sometimes we just want to give up. We sometimes forget that our current situation did not occur overnight and so changing it will not happen overnight either. It will take time and hard work.

Here are the 5 simple tips for setting successful goal. They will help you obtain and retain motivation so that you can start on the path to achieving your goals today.

1) Set Only One Goal At A Time

When you try to take on too much at once, you can become overwhelmed quickly. Instead of trying to tackle three or four goals, why not try to prioritize them? We can create a list and take one goal at a time. Once you achieve that goal, back to your list mark it off, and move to the next one.

The act of marking off the goals and achieving them individually will give you a greater sense of accomplishment. You can even break the one goal done into smaller parts. This gives you motivation and success more often than waiting for days or months to achieve a larger goal.

2) Find Inspiration For Accomplishing Your Goals

The reason that personal trainers are so popular is that they can help you achieve things that alone you may not. It has nothing to do with your desire to achieve your goals; it is because we need inspiration to continue on our road to success.

As humans, we can talk ourselves and make excuses why we do not achieve our goals every day. Having someone that has walked down the same path and has reached the end is a great inspiration that can help motivate you to continue on your path every day.

They can inspire you to go beyond what you thought that you were capable and hold a hand out to you in order assist you on your way.

3) Make A Public Commitment To Accomplishing Your Goals

There is a power in stating our goals to others, do you know? It is a public commitment that you will achieve what you have stated you will. It takes it out of your head and puts it out into the world. This creates a sense of responsibility on our part because we do not wish to disappoint others.

It should be in the form of a definitive statement. Instead of saying "I am trying to reduce my waist down two sizes," try instead "I will lose two waist sizes in the next two weeks." This sends the message of a definitive rather than a wish. There is little room for doubt in a definitive statement.

4) Think Thoughts Conducive To Success

There is only one constant in the universe and that is change. People are often resistant to change. Their resistance is often fueled by fear. This can be the fear of failure or maybe even fear of the unknown.

You must face that fear and tell yourself every day that change is good and change is what is needed to achieve what you want out of life. You can self-talk in front of a mirror daily to help you achieve this.

Remember to keep your talk positive. Instead of saying, "I will try not to be afraid of that new Pilates class because it looks hard." Say instead "I will enjoy the Pilates class and get the rock hard abs I have always wanted." This shift in thought can create wonders in your life.

5) Keep A Success Journal

Earlier I mentioned keeping a calendar to mark your successes. A step beyond this is a success journal. In it, you can write down your achievements and successes. You can include pictures or whatever else is inspiring to you.

This success journal is not only a testament that you have achieved what you told others you would, but it also provides an instrument in which you can look back to when you are achieving new goals to help inspire you.

It is a message to yourself that you can achieve anything you set your mind to and the journal is proof of it.

So, let us progress and prosper abundantly in 2018!! I am still as excited as before .. haha ... :)

Like what Nike says "Just Do It" ... Hee ... hee
